As I shared last week, we've had our first snow here in Connecticut. At our school, the kids play on the blacktop when the usual playground is covered in snow. Kids who bring ALL of their snow gear are allowed to play in the field. Usually the first time, only a few kids have snow pants, etc. By the second storm, many more kids come prepared.
My birthday was on Wednesday. On Sunday, my pastor announced my birthday and presented me with this lei to wear! It's a tradition.
One of my students gave me this as a gift. Her mom made it. This particular student is very kind and always patient with her classmates. She sets a wonderful example for everyone, including ME. It's a blessing just to have her in the room.
When I got home Wednesday, there were gifts on the table for me. And my cake was yummy. I love fruity, whipped topping kind of cakes. (I also wouldn't turn my nose up at a chocolate cake.)
One of my friends got THIS little cutie and brought her to youth group last night. This is Abby, and she spent quite a lot of time just sleeping in my arms. A few minutes before this photo was taken, she was hyper as could be. Then she just zonked out.
Another of my friends surprised me with these socks. Socks isn't the right word for them though. These are no ordinary socks! They are lined with some seriously soft fluffy stuff that is WARM and cushy.
This week I decided to start creating digital scrapbooking pages again. A few years ago, I was very involved in the hobby. The scrapbooking site I really liked went out of business and I lost interest. Creating some layouts this week was fun. I did this one using products from Designer Digitals.
