I awoke on my 32nd birthday to lots of little surprises. The first, from my husband.
And Lucy… my dear sweet child. She carried around a clipboard all day and would randomly ask me how to spell things, (like decorations) but wouldn’t let me see what was on her list.
Then the kids and Wes went to Walmart for a super secret reason…
He called me and told me that she showed him her list, and on it at the bottom was customers. When he asked her what she meant- she said, “people to come to the party, Daddy!”
Once they got home I hopped in the shower to give them some time- and I came out to a big surprise party- put together almost entirely by my 6 year old.
She’s so excited she’s blurry.
And instead of bringing more sweets in my house- we used a gift from my sweet friend Ms.Sam- the best brownies ever made.
The kids picked out gifts for me at Walmart. Judah got me a box of whoppers – then proceeded to ask if I’d share them.
Lucy got me stickers for my guitar or “whatever” and I had to get a picture of her list.
Her list reads:
- 🎸 (guitar stickers)
- Party hats
- Brownes (brownies)
- Wallmart (she wrote it bc they were there)
- Costoners (customers)
- Boloons (balloons)
It was the sweetest thing. And I make a lot of lists and notes and she did just like me. ☺️
And then, after a super yucky dreary day- the sun showed up long enough for a beautiful sunset. I used an old favorite app- which allows you to adjust everything in the camera (shutter speed, iso, etc)- and got this picture.
Thank you Jesus for the gift 😊
And finally- my bullet journal spread for January 1st and 2nd. My sermon notes and my birthday recap.
Loving my Polaroid camera, too!
Here’s to 2017 and 32!
