A Show and a Carson

First, a Show -
Yesterday Ellen knew she was going to a birthday party for her friend, Marissa. What she didn't know was where we were going to begin the celebration. 

On the way to Marissa's house, she told me to make the surprise good :) Oh, it was going to be good!

We traveled into the city of Lancaster.
To see the show,
Elf!
 at the Fulton Opera House.

Ellen, Marissa, and Bri are excited!

We waited for the rest of our group then found our seats. 

Anticipation! 
A row of girls and a row of moms :)

We loved the show! We laughed a lot....Ellen thought Marge, me, and Terry (in that order) were the loudest laughers of the moms...
And she and Emily the loudest of the girls!

After the show we went back to Marissa's house to party. 

Marissa greets Kelly and Nicole by taking their picture, as they arrive. 

We ate pizza and salad then it was time for cake!

Marissa is 22! We sing, she blows out the candles, the girls cheer and clap...Happy Birthday, Marissa!

Time for gifts! 











We had such a good time. Thank you for inviting us to celebrate with you, Marissa!

A Carson - 
It was my Sunday to staff the church nursery this morning. We have lots of little ones at our church (for a small church) but nursery care during the worship service is optional. Many kids stay with their parents and that's just fine. Today it was just me and our Grandson, Carson, until the last little bit. What fun I had playing with Carson, just the two of us!

We played with these stacking cups a lot. 

It was great fun to stack them then knock them down! 

Over and over and over again!

He is the sweetest child. Let's do it again, Carson... That ok with you?

A fun party and show with friends. Playing with the little one is always good too. Pray you have a good week ahead.

Sounds like you've been having fun! I think Marisa must like PJ's. I bet Carson enjoyed that time as much as you did!

That mom and daughter outing sounds fantastic!! I have no doubt you were one of the loudest laughers. I would have loved to be there laughing loudly with you!

What a fun time with that sweet boy!

I like your collages. What program is that done with?

I'd like to have tagged along. What an adventure for you all. I know the girls had a blast! One on one with the little fellow was a plus.
