2/365 Fellowship Blessings

Last night we had a really fun evening... Eric was working, and her husband was not home either, so my friend Nida and I got the kids together for pizza and playing. And Mercy finally got to finish her birthday... She is a Christmas baby, and on Christmas day I forgot to stick candles into a pie and sing happy birthday. So we corrected the oversight last night. Phew.

One of the best parts of having a large family to visit is that with many hands there is light clean up. Everyone pitched in and it didn't take long at all to get the house put back together.

At one point I looked around and realized that we were REALLY girl heavy... 11 girls! (I'll give kudos to anyone who does not know us in person and can figure out which girl is missing of mine is not in the photos...)

And only 4 poor young men. Of course, in a few years none of them will mind being outnumbered. ;)

So Day 2 of counting my blessings: Fellowship. I am so very thankful for the fellowship God has blessed me with here in Whoville.


  1. I know who's missing!

    Hey - so... those candles look so cute and I've bought them and used them a couple times in the last few years, but I always forget how FAST they melt and usually drip wax all over the cake.
    Did yours do that?

    Love you!

  2. Ding Ding! You got it right! Angela and Matt are in Virginia visiting my family... so we didn't have them here. Seems weird to not have them, but they are having a great time seeing their cousins.

    Analene... I don't think they dripped too bad, but we were moving FAST... LOL.
