We had a good day at Sam's homeschool co-op today. I took the elevator instead of the stairs...which helped a lot. I didn't get completely worn out from the start. The other Moms treated me like a princess today. They are so sweet and it was so appreciated. They all pitched in and did all my stuff for me...now, if only I could get that to happen at home:) Sam even had a good day...I saw him talking a bit more today with other kids and even the Moms...that was nice too!
The church where they meet at has a womens candlelight dinner every year. The ladies that want to get to decorate a table in the theme of their choice. Then they invite all their friends and relatives to sit at their table. They have name tags and gifts for each person. Most of the tables have a biblical theme of some kind as well..on the name tags or placemats or with the gifts..
I could have cried when I realized I didn't have my camera. As sick feeling as I was...it was so enjoyabe walking around and looking at all the energy and thought that each of these ladies had put into their tables. The ladies that were there..of course I spoke to and congratulated on doing such wonderful jobs..It was absolutely breathtakingly beautiful...each one!! My favorite was a teddy bear table...the centerpiece was of teddy bears spiraled around like a rising christmas tree. There was a pink candle at the top and ribbon wrapped around that said...Bear ye one another's burdens...It was very sweet...my emotions got the best of me...it touched my heart :)
There was a candy cane table, all done in red and white and candycanes...and an ocean table...complete with sand, starfish and shells and a betta fish. A brown and pink polk-a-dot with chocolate...and every color scheme you can think of. I could just kick myself for not having my camera. So I came home and thought about the church website...and guess what! They do have pictures from last year!! Maybe soon they will post pictures from tonight..Today's tables were even better...much better than the ones from last year...I'll try to keep watching for them to post them up...
I kept walking around, thinking of all of you and how much you would enjoy seeing it!
It made me smile and happy so for that I'm grateful...it was like going to a museum or a fancy art show! Last years pictures really don't do this years justice....but I thought you all would enjoy seeing them so here's the link PICTURES
My very favorites were pictures no. 101, 071, and 169 was my most favored....I did however really like 140,141,143,145 and 154...
These gorgeous tables made me think of you Eileen!!
I've had a really good day...even though I'm still tired...it was a good day...I even got to talk to a sweet bloggy friend on the phone...Lori from Morning Glories and Moonflowers....Lori...I really enjoyed talking to you!! It was the perfect ending to a great day!!
Hugs from me to all of you!!!
I'm off to bed.....hopefully having sweet dreams of beautiful candlelight dinners :)
With Love, Jerelene
