Best Friends --- Homemaking Link-Up Weekend

I've got some great PINKS in my Etsy shop for Christmas! This French Ballerina Pillow would be a sweet gift for someone---like yourself!
How about some PINK wrapped carmels?  I also wrap them in gold and red!  Visit my shop today to order lots of yummy treats!

I had every intention on doing a great Christmas decoration themed post tonight but, as I was going through my pictures, I found these and just had to share them!

Our oldest son, Michael, celebrated his 10th birthday on December 3rd.  On Tuesday, he had his best friend Jonathan come and stay the night for a friend party.  L-R: Michael, Jonathan, Elisha, Cainan, Selah, Avalon (all are ours except Jon)

He was pretty excited with the Nerf-like gun that Jonathan gave him!

The thing I just love about these guys is that they treat each other with such kindness.  They are true friends and show Jesus' love to each other whenever they're together.  It is such a joy to have Jonathan over and Michael is such a kind boy.

Michael is the kind of kid who just loves life.  He's loving and patient with all his other seven siblings and does his best to please his Daddy and I.

Happy Birthday dear little boy!

  5. Oh how sweet the children are. I bet your house is always busy..I love when children have best friends and are always happy! Happy Birthday!

  6. So much fun, happy birthday!

    Hearty Pink, come and see when you get a chance.

  7. Hi Sarah! Thanks for commenting on my recent post - I've had you on my blog list for a while, but remember that I had a tough time hooking up as a follower on your site - I have problems once in a while with that as I have found others do, too. Arbitrary blogger issues I guess. Anyway - all done and I'm showing up on your follower list.

    Yes! I'd love to link up with you in the future - but am sore busy and down to posting only twice a week and knocking myself out to do that! Hate that my creative and blogging ministry time is eaten up by a stressful job - in hopes of that changing in 2012 so I can really get into a better teaching and blogging position! I'll link up soon! Thanks for thinking of me!


  8. Those are the best kind of picks, they don't need to be pink. I understand....... Its both mine and my husbands birthday this weekend so we will be out and around do something. Enjoy!!!

    Happy Pink Saturday to You and Yours!!!Have a wonderful and blessed holiday!

    Love, Light, & Harmony, CindyLew

  9. Merry Christmas Sarah,
    I love the photos and story of Michael's 10th birthday and I feel it's a perfect Christmas post....
    I'll explain,
    I have a lovely photo of my 15yo g-daughter (when she was nearly 4)saying 'Happy Birthday,Baby Jesus' she doesn't remember it..she had asked her mum to make a birthday cake and put candles on it for Baby Jesus.
    Birthdays and Christmas are linked for me,regardless of the time of year..
    God Bless

  10. Sarah, your son and his friend remind me of my own boys and the fun of having their friends stay over when they were kids.
    These are what makes the collective family memory so rich :-)
    Your pink pillow is very lovely and feminine.
    I'll have to check your shop out!
    I'm sorry to be commenting so late - I had actually come over and read this the other day, and I thought I left you a note!
    Thanks for linking up to lace, dear lady.
    Have a blessed week in Jesus...

  16. Well I'm coming in pretty late tonight. But I'm glad I did. It made me smile to think about the joy of being a child with a great favored bud. I can see the light in both of their eyes.
