Celebration Timessss!

Parties and Fun are two of my favorite things. Christmas season is just that a HUGE celebration of the birth of Jesus!! I also love celebrating life and birthdays of friends. On Tuesday night we celebrated one of my best friends... Katty :-)


We had a GOLDEN birthday party for her. Full of gold sparkly dresses (worn by the birthday girl herself) and fun gold accessories. It was perfect!

Kat lives and goes to school in Seattle. It was her first time meeting Rosey and even brought her a super cute purple puffy vest. Rosey loved it! :-)

We got the special treat of meeting Kat's boyfriend Devin. He flew in for a few days from California. We approve, Kat ;)


Happy Birthday to a FOREVER friend... we love, love, love you! It is a treat when we get to see you!

Now that it is SO near to Christmas - There are a few thoughts I want to leave with today. I won't be posting much this weekend, but rather trying to enjoy every moment!

Matthew 7:11 says. "If you then, though you are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your father in heaven give good gifts to THOSE WHO ASK HIM".

Wow! That is profound and real to me this Christmas season. Not that we have "children" but I love giving gifts to people and yes, I am a sinful (evil) person.... soo... can you imagine how much MORE our father wants to give us?!? We just have to ask him!! Ask and you shall receive (not always in the ways we may think...) God is the best gift giver... EVER! I reflect on that today.

Happy Golden Birthday to your dear friend!

What a wonderful verse! You are right ask and God will give, and like you said, it's not always what we "thought" we needed/wanted. God is the only one that knows the ultimate plan.

Have a wonderful Christmas Weekend and God Bless you and your family!
