12 more days until the BIG DAY

Yep, just 12 more days until Carleigh's birthday. I can't believe it is almost here! I've still been quite busy planning for her party on the 27th.

I talked to Holly, my pastor's wife, on the phone today and she helped me to sort out some details for the party. Now all that's really left to plan is just the little things and I'm working those out. I'm still deciding on whether to create a slideshow of this past year. I need to decide that soon and get to working on it if I am.

I think Anthony and I have decided to do a cook-out type theme for the food, like hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, etc. I just hope we have a beautiful day to go with it! It'd be nice if the day was sunny and warm so that the kids could play outside on the playground and the adults could go outside too. I would love that. Can you pray for some good weather for her birthday celebration?

All this planning has not left me much time to think about what the approaching day really means. I'm consumed in making this party everything I want it to be. This is the only year we are having such a big celebration so I just want it to be perfect.

Thanks to everyone who can't be present that plans on releasing a balloon or lighting a candle. If you take pictures, please send them to me. I'd love to have them! I'd like to create a post with all of them.

I'll check in again soon.

I will be thinking of and praying for you, especially on that day. I know what it's like to get so busy you forget what something really means. That's how it's been for me with this whole planning for our embryo adoption. I'm so busy getting everything together for it, I sometimes forget why we're doing it, and then it's like a hailstorm of grief falls over me.
I will be praying for good weather for you.

(((hugs)))
