For Charity's Sake

This weekend past I was invited to spend the day celebrating a Sweet Sixteen for a very sweet young lady indeed - along with several of her friends and siblings.

Her family honored her with this incredible mural using the letters of her name and a theme for each letter made of the things that define her: Charity. Favorite books, favorite photographs, favorite foods. It was such a precious tribute that I hope to steal, I mean borrow, this wonderful idea for the next birthday in our home. {Sorry Braden, I didn't have enough time to pull it off on your birthday!}

This adorable sister-princess was ready to celebrate her sister's big day. . .

The guests arrive and mingle. . .

You might wonder how I, being in the thirty-something crowd, managed to pull off an invitation to a Sweet Sixteen party. I came disguised as the 'Craft Lady'.

The young ladies, along with Charity's Mom, and I spent a good chunk of the afternoon playing with papers, inks, scissors, adhesives and buttons.

Each young lady went home with a beautiful bookmark, small notebook and several Christmas themed cards. It was a lovely afternoon and I feel truly blessed to have been a part of it.

Happy 16th, Charity!
Love, Mrs. F
