A Bevy of Beauties

After church today, several girls came to spend the afternoon with us.  It was very impromptu and very fun!  Our 3 littlest girls went to visit cousins and friends, and we had cousins and friends here with us. 

Let’s see – we had girls ages 17, 15, 14, 14, 13, 13, 12, 11, 11, 11 – plus Luke and Noah.  They played a favorite game called, “Family”, watched a couple of home-made video productions (mysteries), drew pictures, made their own video production, played the piano, and one of them even helped me make homemade applesauce.  I popped them some popcorn and laid out the brownies left over from the fellowship meal today at church. 

What a delightful day it was – I love each of those girls and am so thankful for their friendships with our girls.  Lovely young ladies, every one.

We’ve always hoped our kids would invite friends here often as they enter their teen years.  We want them to come and enjoy each other’s company, have plenty to eat, and feel welcome to relax and have fun.  Lord willing, we will enjoy many more days like today with our kids and their friends!

(grateful thanks to the parents for “lending” them to us!)
