A date with my favorite guy... Spoiled by my girls... Lovely gifts... A dolly who wanted to join the party too... Opening presents... Yummy things made by others... Surrounded by my people... Friends and fun... A BLESSED day!
I never really imagined us working with teens. Sometimes, it makes us feel like old fogies. 😉 But honestly, it has been a joy to host our church youth every other Friday night!
