A time to dance.

Tim had a little party for me for my birthday tonight. It was dinner and dancing and I had so much fun. We got to try out our new dance moves (both of them :).
It was such a blessed day. Reece made me a shirt (one of Tim's old white ones) and drew hearts all over it and wrote...I love you. I will be wearing that for the rest of my life. He has also started calling me "his sweet girl". He says, "goodnight, my sweet girl". Believe me when I tell you my heart melts. He is a reserved child and rarely shows affection so I am starting to see what so many moms of boys have told me. They LOVE their mommas. And this momma LOVES them!






I am not going to write names because I don't know if that is ok with everybody but enjoy the pictures!Wish you all could have been there!



I didn't take many pictures. Other people snapped these shots. My photographer friends were out of town. But I found some cute ones on the camera.















Always good to have a dentist around to cut a birthday cake perfectly with floss.




































































Love seeing your big smiles!!!!!! You've got JOY, JOY, JOY, JOY down in your hearts... where? down in your hearts... to stay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!








Attn**Bible Study Girls! This is who spoke last week. She is so great!!!

















Don't miss her CUTE baby bump!!
















Recognize the Hulk from the Fear Not Party?



Tim said, "Nobody puts Baby in the corner" before we danced. We wanted to do 'the lift' but um, yeah, I think we are getting a little carried away with our 2 new dance moves. ;)




Here are pictures of us that really make me happy.

































































These are Tim's shoes I got him last year for Christmas. I like them way more than he does but he wore them to the party for me!













Thanks for coming everybody! My 32nd birthday was spectacular. I am so thankful for good days and live them to the fullest. It is amazing how a trial can give you such capacity to experience life with no reservation.

Thank you God that you are with us in every season of our lives! It was time to laugh and dance tonight!

"There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under heaven.
A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest.
A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to rebuild.
A time to cry and a TIME TO LAUGH. A time to grieve and a TIME TO DANCE.
A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away.
A time to search and a time to lose. A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak up.
A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace."

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Happy Birthday! The pictures are fantastic and Ecclesiastes is my favorite scripture. Okay, I did learn from "Footloose", but it IS scripture!
