Of parties and persons .. . .

There are some days when I am overcome with the urgency to organize things, my own stuff anyways (Mom wishes that the need would carry over to the rest of the house, but this kind of organizing frenzy, is a bit more restricted :-), today was such a day, actually, so was yesterday. But one can only organize a room so much before there is nothing left out of order, there are bags filled with items for the thriftstore, and the floor is sparkling clean, there remains nothing left to do except turn to the computer and begin to sort through picture files that have been long neglected because I haven't had the urge to organize, which of course is what I did.


Ayden and Ellie figured out what to do right away, Alan wasn't too sure about the fire on his cupcake . . .

We had a birthday party for the three smallest grandkids early in June, right in between the camping trip our family took to Barkerville, Josh and I leaving for Kalamazoo, Jordan and David going to Calgary and Junur taking off for Alberta. Somehow, we found a day to all get together and have fun. It was supposed to be a birthday party for Alan, Ayden, and Ellie, but really, I think it was an excuse for Sarah to plan an awesome party and decorations and for the rest of us to eat good food and spend some family time. The theme of the day was 'Bugs', you should see them pop in an out of the pictures.


Andrew took his job as "Pinatta Holder" quite seriously. Benjamin and Anna had a blast (along with the other kids too!)


Looking through these pictures, as silly as it may seem, makes me realize that part of the thing I am looking forward to the most about leaving for Taiwan, is coming home again . . .

Yes, indeed - it would be hard to leave all this! But, I suppose that going away makes you appreciate home more than if you were to stay. (And you'll be back very soon. You'll probably be working so hard that the time will fly by! ...**hugs**)

You always do the loveliest posts Becca darling. =)

And it sounds like I would do well to follow your example. My room could use a good purging through as well.
