Why My Sister Liz Should Be Crowned The Queen Of Birthday Party-Throwers

(Home from Arkansas. Tired. Lots to write about, will soon. Thankful for you guys. Love you. More later.)

This party was at Liz’s house for her (first and only) grandchild Perri’s 1st birthday party EXTRAVAGANZA!!! There was a sock monkey theme, and it was so unbelievably cute– also? Liz (and Perri’s mom, Leah) made like, everything you see!  Check it out:

    What a clever theme for Perri’s first birthday party! And quite the talented and “crafty” grandma and mom!

    (That baby has GORGEOUS BIG EYES!)

    So cute! Looks like she enjoyed it as well as the adults.

    Amazing. I’m not letting Daniel look at the computer screen in case he gets any ideas for January!

    What an adorable little girl ! Obviously she really had fun…

    Uuhhh, if you don’t mind, I have a prayer request for tomorrow (Thursday): Would you please be so kind and pray that I achieve at least a 3 in G-F translation test ?

    That baby is beautiful….and that grandma wins first prize for babies’ birthday parties.

    Looks exactly like something our Tori will do when her grandbaby has a first birthday party!

    May I ask all of you good people to pray for our themema today…all day and beyond? Betty is having three valves replaced and the aorta scraped, where it has crystalized. Pray those scrapings won’t flake off and cause a stroke…besides the seriousness of the surgery itself. It’s gonna take a whole lot of scraping ’cause the lady has a very big heart.

    Thanks for reminding us, Momma Lloyd…and let us know as soon as you hear something?

    Who knew there were that many ‘sock-monkey’ items in the world? How I would love to get my hands on that baby!

    Prayer list so far:

    themema (Betty) – today and beyond – heart surgery
    delighted – Thursday (start praying now ’cause I don’t know what the time difference is) – translation test

    Anybody else? We’re on it!

    Yeah. Tomorrow nite I’ll have more Christian artists performing at the #2 rock/live music venue in Finland. It’s a 1st. And many things seen to depend on how it goes, the turn out we get, etc.

    Been praying for you all week delighted. And will of course add themema as well!!

    Also, is it me, or does Perri look grateful, relieved, much happier to finally be rid of the bow and get her fingers in on that impressive sock monkey cake!?!

    Oh, and yes, I’d like a sock monkey for Christmas = )

  12. jonny

    So, delighted, when do you get to find out how you did?? Also, any news on our themema yet??


  13. delightedabroad

    Many thanks for your prayers ! My teacher said she will correct as soon as possible and email the result. So I’m all the same waiting excitedly for THE email…

    MostlySunny, I’m 6 hours ahead now that we have returned to standard time.

    At first look at the last picture I thought that precious baby had a head of white hair. That sweet Perri finally got someone to take off the red bow and replace it with scraps from santa’s suit. Toooo cute.

    I believe it’s part of her Sock Monkey party hat!! But yes, cute definitely covers her! I love Tori’s shot of her bottom with her name on her nappi holder!! She probably screamed with delight when Tori first noticed it!! = )
