As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him--you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2: 4-5

Sarah's Sweet Seventeen

See this little girl in the tutu?

She turned 17...yes seventeen on Saturday.
It was a laid back day full of family togetherness.  Then, at dinnertime, before Josh headed out for his New Year's Eve festivities, we enjoyed Pizza Hut...her choice.

 Then it was time for "Cake!  Cake!  Cake!"  And yes, they really were jumping for joy over the prospect of cake!
 And wouldn't you be jumping for joy over this chocolatey goodness?
 Sisters, waiting patiently....
 What could be better than being serenaded by your daddy?
 "Helping" Sarah blow out the candles...

 The little girls had a hard time NOT being the ones to open the presents, so Sarah graciously let them help....excuse me.  She let them open them, and Charlotte opened them all.

Sarah's present from us--a new bed!  Daryl was really on the ball with the bed making this break.  He made this queen size farm bed--so pretty, too--in about three days.  We shopped for her new linens a few days before her birthday.  It wasn't a huge surprise, and there wasn't a whole lot for her to open, but she said it was totally worth it!
