I should have made this post in October and here it is the end of November. But I’m going to post it anyway because don’t want to miss the opportunity to share another special birthday celebration.
In September I shared that our granddaughter, Hannah, had turned 16 – well eighteen days later our number four granddaughter, Kaley, also turned 16.
Kaley celebrated her birthday at a joint party with her friend Maddie, who also turned 16 in October. The theme of their party was A PARISIAN AFFAIR. Everything was decorated in black, white, and pink, with touches of Paris all around (they had replicas of the Eifel tower and large black and white pictures depicting scenes from Paris). Over 100 hundred friends attended this semi-formal affair for dancing, fun, and lots of great food.
The girls said it was everything they had dreamed it would be. I know we, as grandparents, had a great time watching them enjoy their celebration.
A FALL GET AWAY
We left right after Kaley’s party for a get away to the mountains. We had a great time relaxing, hiking, and enjoying the fall foliage. For us Central Floridians it was a real treat.
Not the best pictures – but the leaves were gorgeous.
We spent a day at the Biltmore – the gardens were beautiful.
By the time we got home it was November. I have spent several days this month taking my Mom to doctor’s appointments. She is having some heart problems and has been referred to a cardiac surgeon. We have her consultation on Monday and will see what her next step is to be. I would greatly appreciate your prayers for her, and wisdom for the family as we help her make health care decisions.
I hope you al1 had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are able to take the time to enjoy the month of December as we celebrate the birth of Jesus – the reason for the Christmas season.
