Wow! I can't believe that it is already 2013! And almost a year since my last real post! So much has happened in the last year - so many blessings! And I really will start posting some projects. For now, I have one that I did (found the idea on Pinterest). I did a Children's Sermon just before Christmas, and I wanted to reinforce to the children that Christmas is a celebration of Jesus' birthday. So I made these cute little tealight birthday cakes and tied each box up with ribbon. I made 24 so that the kids each got one, but first got to hand them out to some of the people in church. The kids loved giving gifts to random folks! I didn't make them as decorated as I would have liked, but I made 24 of them. In one day. At a very busy time of year!

As I mentioned in my last post, we have a new granddaughter. Abbigail Lynn was born on June 1, 2012, joining big sister Addison (age 2). Their parents are my son Andrew and his wife Alison. This year, I will once again be blessed with a new granddaughter, as my daughter Sarah and her husband Travis are expecting in mid-June. The new baby will join big brother Coltin (age 4) and big sister Adelyn (age 3). June will also be a special month because my daughter Bree will be marrying her beloved Sabrina. I am so excited to be planning such a joyous wedding with them. I am working on ideas for the invitations, etc.!
