Our eldest turned 16:

Instead of cake, she requested Fruit Pizza, her favorite dessert. Grandpa and Grandma came over to enjoy as well as her uncle and aunt and cousins.
These two sisters get along very well. For that I am very grateful.
Our church had to replace the roof on the bell tower several years ago. In doing so, the cross had to be taken down and couldn't be put up again due to the shape of the new steel roof. Well, finally a new one was put back and I was able to take pictures of the work in progress.
I'm always amazed how God provides. All the people you see working on the cross are members of our congregation and own the equipment being used.
Last Halloween, Hannah and Ellie decided they were going to sew LOTR costumes for everyone for this year's trick-or-treat festivities. They did. No patterns were used. They simply looked at a picture from the internet and began stitching. Everything except Abby's skirt was sewn.

David and I went to a Murder Mystery Dinner at a friend's home. We, too, dressed up, had fun solving the mystery.
