well that's what the coming months seem to be alot about for us!
I'm organising our very first church picnic (open to our wider community too) with lots of good ol' fashion games like tug-o-war, potato sack races, egg and spoon races, a cake stall (with profits being raised to begin a community fund so that when needs arise we can use money from that to bless and help people from the area). We'll also be having a sausage sizzle.
Anyone else ever organised a church picnic like this? Would love to hear your ideas!
Then we have a joint BABY BLESSING for 3 beautiful women from our church which will be held here in a couple of weekends time. I always make a mini book for each expectant mamma which is then filled with verses of scripture, thoughts and prayers of those attending. I'll be organising a few games for it too but mostly it is a time for us to gather around these ladies, encourage them and pray for them. I love these and it is an honour to have them in our home.
Still not sure about whether or not I will have a 30th. It's getting closer now but we had already decided that if I did have one it would take place a few weeks after my actual birthday (which kinda buys us a bit more time!) The issue I'm having tho is with numbers. How do you invite some people and not others? When we wrote out the first list there were 90 people on it! That's just too many unfortunately but who could we leave off? Aaaarrrgh! Anyone else experience this kind of thing when planning parties? It's the first big party (other than our wedding!) that I've had in the 10 years Brett and I have been together. I'm sure we'll work it out and if not, then it might just end up being a nice quiet evening with our families.
We are off on our annual Mother's Group Family holiday too this month.
Next month i'm supposed to be going on my annual girls weekend away with mg girls but am not sure if zippi and i will.
A fair bit of organising to be done :)
Working out the good vs best things.
