She's Arrived!

Our precious, long awaited, Olivia Joy . . . WE LOVE YOU!!!!! "Livy" was born on Tuesday, May 22, weighing eight pounds. What a beautiful expression of God's love is His gift in a baby. We hurried down on Thursday to meet, hug, kiss, and snuggle this new little bundle of life. :-) Praise the Lord for her safe arrival!

Mothers and Birthday Surprises

("The B-I-B-L-E- yes, that's the book for me . . . )

A few weeks ago I received a phone call from Leah Telian, wanting to plan a surprise Mother's Day party for our Mom's at their home in Oakhurst. Eagerly I agreed, and we entered into the planning stage. Due to some schedule changes, we ended up going up the weekend before Mother's Day, and celebrating Mrs. Telian's birthday! We succeeded in surprising her and had a wonderful weekend with the Telian family!
