PInk Party!

A friend of ours had breast cancer and is now making her way through chemo treatments. A bunch of us decided to throw her a PINK party! last night was finally the night. We had lots of pink foods, including delicious strawberry daquairis. (however you spell that!) We hung out and had a great time. Cheryl was happy and content.. but was not feeling the best. I was in charge of getting a group picture. HA! that meant that I had to learn how to use the tripod and the timer on my camera! The first picture, I didnt make it back into the group in time, the second I had plenty of time, and the third.. Ha! I was lucky I made it! we had a great time and I know that Cheryl really appreciates all of our love and support. this pic is the third one, which I barely made it back for!! a few of the girls really dressed up.. like our friend Renee, who came in her "kick cancers butt" costume! I really have the most awesome friends.. they are all nuts!
IN other news.. Im feeling like Fall is really upon us. I'm noticing lots of trees starting to change.. its getting darker earlier in the evening and the sun is coming up later in the mornings! Today is pretty dreary, but I do love the crisp freshness of fall. I asked my daughter this morning if she thought it was too early to get halloween decorations out.. she said she was kind of surprised that they werent out already! then she thought that the mess from creating halloweenies that is all over the kitchen table was probably enough halloween for now! hmmph! shes probably right. but Ive decided that I can get a few pieces out at a time.. so that means, its about time to put away summery things.. beachy things.. I figure I've probably had the last of my actually on the beach beach days.. but there are still plenty of days left for being on the lake!! In fact.. I think I'm going to plan a fall gathering to be held at "MY" new spot on the lake!

so speaking of fall and halloween hows all my swapper buddies doing on their halloween dolls? I'm almost done with mine. Please please please dont forget to take pics and email them to me!!! You still have a whole month to finish them. soo.. have fun!

That's so sweet of you girls to have a Pink Party. Even if Cheryl wasn't feeling her best, she will have happy memories to get her through the rough times.

I suppose I should put away all my springy-summery things.

Love all the pink at the party! Wish I had time to join the Halloween doll swap! Did you buy Somerset? Being spontaneous is a GOOD thing:0)

What wonderful friends you have.

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

his is such an awesome thing to do!!! We were told at church last night that a dear sweet lady who is a friend to so many of us and who dedicated her live to teaching and helping children is losing her battle with cancer. We are all so very sadden by this. She retired this past summer from 43 years of teaching and 2 weeks later was diagnosed with cancer.

Now THERE's someone I'd want in my court if I had to fight a really serious illness! ALL of you, in fact! GLAD you had the party & that it was a success! As for the Halloween kitty - I LOOOOVE it!

Please keep us in your prayers - Hurricane Ike is headed straight over our farm. We expect a rocky few days with all of our animals. I will try and keep my blog updated.
