Love is my word for the year



While sitting in church yesterday morning, Pastor Tom made to statement "Love requires action." This stuck out to me because so often, I get caught up in the day to day business of life and forget to show those that I love how much I do love them. Not only does it apply in the spiritual sense, as he was talking about, but it our other relationships as well. So, I chose LOVE as my word for the year (Ali E's challenge) to remind myself to DO the things that show my love. So, I made a layout for it. And, of course, I used some tips from Ali E's book on scrapbooking with patterened paper. (I just got that last week-needed it a long time ago!) I am pleased with how it turned out. I posted it on 2 ScrappyChix Designs for the Elsie's challenge that is going on there. I enjoyed creating this layout!
T's birthday party was great. He had a blast and the other kids did too. they played Musical Islands, Walk the Plank, and X marks the spot (pin the x on the map). Then we had a little snack and cake and ice cream. the cake was totally cool. They all loved the treasures inside the cake. After the cake and ice cream, we had a treasure hunt for their treasures (goodie bags) and that was a great time. It was a fun party. I'm glad T had such a good time. The weather was fabulous-over 70 degrees! I don't know when he will get such great weather for his birthday again!
