Miranda's party

Miranda's 24th birthday slash Bon Voyage Party was everything and more that Randy & I could have hoped it would be. Our home was filled with over 50 of Miranda's dearest friends & loved ones! We celebrated Miranda with a time of sharing her life and affirming who she is. I know she came away with a deep sense of love and support as she embarks on her adventures in England. She is going to be sooo missed!

Her brothers Tyler and Shawn along with her cousin Lyle... joking around as always. Love these guys!

Tyler made her cry when he shared about what she means to him. Nothing thrills a parent more than watching their children loving each other. Makes me think of the verse I had them memorize and recite to one another while growing up... "be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ has forgiven you". Thank you Lord for my kind, loving children.

Miranda found this Jane Austin quote the day before the party. Sooo Miranda.
Happy Birthday precious daughter!

*** Thank you NANCY for capturing these memorable moments!
Be sure to read her party post HERE. She says it so well.

*** Check out Miranda's blog. She had a bike accident on campus at ASU the other day! So scary, but she's doing OK... a little banged up. We are sooo thankful, as it could have been worse. My poor baby girl!

*** Oh, and I have my sister Kathy and my niece Kristen's family here from Oklahoma City all this week. I have so much to share with you! We are having so much fun! More fun posts to come! Check back this weekend! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

What fun! Just this morning I was reminiscing about how 10 years ago today I was in Paris! We ate Thanksgiving dinner in the Hard Rock Cafe. LOL I can't believe it was still so long ago that I spent a semester in London--I still dream about it! Miranda is going to have the time of her life! I'm just thrilled for her to have this opportunity. :)
