Lunches, Play Dates and Clothing

We have had a pretty low key week thankfully.  I feel like once December hits - it gets crazy up until January when we finally take a deep breath. 

Monday I caught up on life.  Mostly I soaked up a little quiet after being with the kids 24/7 for a week.  

Tuesday we had our women's ministry Christmas lunch.  A lot of people asked me - we try to plan events at lunch or night so that working women as well as those who are home can come.  I had to help set up so Will Holden and I went in the morning.  He was so good and helped set up the tables! 

My friend Marci did all the decorating and it looked so nice! 

She made everyone a simmer bag.  It has cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and all spice plus an orange.  I've been simmering it and my house smells so great! 

We had a catered lunch and an amazing crowd.  We had about 140 women come! A lady in our church spoke and she was amazing. 

I love this friend! 

We've had a crazy mayor election this year in our town.  We are having a runoff so I went and voted early on Wednesday.  Then I had an appointment with the foot doctor.  I have the feet of an 85 year old man (no offense to any 85 year old men reading this).  I have HORRIFIC bunions, plantar fascilitis, and now I have cysts on the top of my feet which apparently are from bone spurs.  It's a miracle I can walk most days honestly.  The food doctor was so nice - I have a feeling she and I are going to become good friends. ha! 

Yesterday Will Holden had his first little friend play date.  His friend is 2 years older but they got along really well.  His mom is one of my good friends.  These boys both are the babies with two older sisters.  They played all morning. 

They talked me into Chick-fil-A which was a good idea because they played in the playground for over an hour after eating.  

After school I took the kids to one of our favorite coffee shops for hot chocolate.  They have games and things for kids to do so we love going there.  

One thing I get asked about a lot is where I shop for Harper.  We are past all the cute little girl clothes but too young for juniors.  She wears a bigger size and likes clothes that are cute but comfortable.  

I was introduced to Wonderfully Made Clothing.  The owner designed clothes with her darling daughter Ruthie in mind.  Ruthie has downs syndrome and wears a bigger size.  She wanted her to be comfortable and to have something cute to wear.  The motto of the clothes are centered around Psalm 139:14 "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful"

Harper loved all these pieces! She fit in a size smaller than normal so they run big and they passed her comfort test and she felt pretty! 

I know a lot of you have daughters that are in that pre-tween age and have a hard time finding cute clothes.  Check out their website!
