this weekend began with our YL Christmas party. a time for the leaders and committee to come together to eat. worship. exchange some gifts and just be together. we had a great time. see...oh, and ava's signature lip.
i found Give Jewelry a month or so ago when i was reading a friend's blog. i then began an email correspondence with a sweet women who works for Give Jewelry. there products are cute. affordable. above all: every bracelet you make provides a week worth of food for a child in need. pretty incredible. i believe in there movement and mission to end world hunger.
look how thrilled ava looks? i knew something was off from the moment she woke up from her nap a little feverish, wanting to cuddle, and just not herself. but we got ready and i thought she would turn a corner. nah...never happened...she would not leave my side the enter night. after about an hour or so i figured out what wrong..she threw up on me and a few people standing with us. sorry about that. first time in her little life that she has thrown up me. funny how as a mom you really do not care that you smell a little like throw up or in my case a lot like throw up and your clothes may never be the same...you simply clean it up the best you can and head home. so that's what we did. when i was getting her out of the car seat she said..."me go to party?" sweet girl is always up for a good time. she ended up not getting sick again just slept a lot. then cliff and laura came and it was so great to relax. talk. eat good food. talk all little baby wright (i am not pregnant. laura is) and share life.
it was a great great weekend. mostly because ava ended up not being sick all weekend which i was preparing for after friday night. loved being with our friends. loved having some girls over dinner and then some senior girls from JMU over to eat cookies. drink coffee & hot chocolate. share life and talk thru one thousand gifts and how the Lord is working in our lives
