Turnin' Twelve

Turning twelve is a monumental birthday. There are many birthdays that are significant, like the first birthday obviously. Then there is sweet sixteen--kinda hard to compete with that one. Turning twenty one has it's own significance. I hated turning thirty but am looking forward to forty with no reservations.

Turning twelve is the best of both worlds- still a kid, but you are teetering on the brink of the teenage years. Twelve lets you enjoy some advantages of both world's.
So, with much joy we celebrated Virginia's twelfth birthday on Friday.

There was so much we did:

The cake had a blue dye that stained our lips and teeth blue-- pretty!

What's a party without your pals?

Bowling was an adventure.

And dinner at Little Tokyo's was delicious

We ended the night with ice cream at Scoops!

Happy Birthday Virginia! We love you!

Springtime at the Welch's

SS 2:12 " The flowers are springing up, and the time of singing birds has come."

Here is a little lopsided picture of my garden flag

By next week she will have big yellow blooms all over.

My friend Cindy gave me this geranium for my birthday. I love it!

It's a beautiful day even though I'm home sick with a cold. Sitting in
this chair with the sun on my face has made me feel a little better.

I love him because.....

1. He is the prettiest man in Putnam County!
2. He's my baby daddy.
3. He lets me pick where to eat on our Friday night dates.
4. He rubs my back when I have a cough.
5. He has never, never, even in my 9th month of pregnancy even so much as suggested I needed to lose any weight.
6. He prays for me and with me every morning.
7. His upper lip curls in the cutest way when I make him smile.
8. He tells me I'm really smart.
9. He's the best daddy to his little girls, and always says "I love being a girl Dad!"
10. He loves Jesus more than He loves me!

I'm happy because.....

I'm married to the world's greatest handyman and he just spent a few hours this afternoon putting in these awesome floors in my bedroom! They turned out beautiful and my living room and dining room are next!

I rewarded him with this chocolate pie straight off Pioneer Woman. It was delicious!

My annual summer black flip flops were bought today and last years are now banished to the camper for grunge use only.

I logged 45 minutes on this torture device this morning. My sins of the chocolate pie are forgiven!

These two girls helped me make supper and now we are gonna go watch a movie while Daddy watches NASCAR.

Enjoy your worship day tomorrow. He is worthy of all our praise!
