1000 gifts and then some...

Continuing the count - at least the written count (#146- #162)
and remembering gifts given through out time:

this crazy Texas weather!  Cold in the middle of May!

another birthday gathering

playing in the fountains at the park, even in the cool temperatures


tweener girls, giggling and delighting in each others' joy

the gift that kept on giving (thanks Jordan)
Reminding me of the Gift that keeps on giving!

the robot kit! (thanks Sophia) just what she wanted!

 powerball maker - another gift in the science category (thanks Mimi and Bennie)

and all the girls gave a gift that was exactly keeping with dear daughter's personality and likes...crafting, science, Claire's, and collections - *sigh* - wonderful!

cupcake cakes from Wal-Mart - birthday cake ice cream! - hoops and yo-yo balloons and cards - conversation with adults! - for school today, doing "science" and "home-ec" as an opportunity (excuse) to continue working with all the gifts! - life-group with friends - memorizing scripture together (so fun!) leading to - in depth discussions at home with the Word open! -

enjoying the life He gave us to live!

Yes, the TX weather is crazy! We turned our air on and then turned it back off. It just can't make up its mind!

I hope you and your "vintage girl" will give bee-keeping a try. Seriously, it is so worth it. Oh, and your right about crazy Texas weather--I was shocked by the cold mornings while visiting there.
