Leigh is 7 (a month ago)

A month ago, Leigh Leigh turned 7!  She wanted doughnuts for her class treat--so it was easy to make that happen!  

At Holiday Potpourri, I bid on a cheer/gym party which was perfect for her!

It was lots of fun! And exactly 12 minutes after the party was over we hit the road for Orlando!

sara beth is 9 (6 weeks ago)

Oh, Sara Beth's birthday was 6 weeks ago...sigh...

We had a lot of fun celebrating Sara Beth this year.  She couldn't decide between a spend the night or a cake decorating party.  I told her there was no way to have one on her birthday and that we would have to have it a few weeks late because I was out of town the week before her birthday and her birthday fell during the Missions Conference as well as on her play day.  Little did she know I was planning to combine them and to surprise her!

her cake before she let her brother help

painting nails with uno cards...whatever number you drew,that's how many toes you painted with one color then you switched colors...

after we all rested (momma was very tired), she wanted to go to the children's museum for dr. seuss day

her requested dinner:  steak, mac and cheese, roasted broccoli

the surprise

See, what a morning, gloriously bright, 
with the dawning of hope in Jerusalem; 
Folded the grave-clorthes, tomb filled with light,
As the angels announce, "Christ is risen!"

See God's salvation plan,
Wrought in love, borne in pain, paid in sacrifice,
Fullfilled in Christ, the Man,
For He lives: Christ is risen from the dead!

See Mary weeping, "Where is He laid?"
As in sorrow she turns from the empty tomb; 
Hears a voice speaking, calling her name;
It's the Master, the Lord raised to life again!

The voice that spans the years,
Speaking life, stirring hope, bringing peace to us,
Will sound till He appearsm
For He lives: Christ is risen from the dead!

One with the Father, Ancient of Days,
Through the Spirit who clothes faith with certainty.
Honor and blessing, glory and praise

To the King crowned with power and authority!
And we are raised with Him,
Death is dead, love has won, Christ has conquered;
And we shall reign with Him,
For He lives: Christ is risen from the dead!

He is risen, indeed!
