2012 == LAST DAY

Well, I am in denial that 2012 is on it's way out!  It was a fantastic year= filled with lots of wonder and amazing things!  We are very blessed to have traveled alot, graduated another kid from Highschool, and were blessed beyond measure.  I will miss 2012!  But I am also excited for a fresh start= and every year when the new year rolls around, I look forward to all the new things I can do and I can set some new goals!  I pray that all of you have a very Blessed NEW YEAR and that you are excited to see what God has in store for YOU!!

Thanks to Pinterest for the idea to have a Mashed Potato bar! It was a huge hit!

this is the only camera shot of my van loaded to the hilt this morning to take the donations.  The Bags were full of good gifts!
I wanted to share a few pics from last night!  We hosted a party last night that benefits JOY Junction- the homeless shelter here.  We invited a ton of friends and asked them to bring donations of personal items, blankets, Bibles, sox, and lots more.  The party was a huge success again this year- and what a blessing to be able to deliver those 20 huge bags today to the shelter.  I know with all the homeless they serve, they will use all we gave and I say a huge Thanks to all our friends who helped us bless the shelter.  We had a fun evening seeing lots of friends and making a difference to the homeless. Here are a few shots- not too great pics because I was busy being a hostess - but here are a few!
