What's coming up

Hello everyone! Things have been busy around here ,and I thought I would sit down and reflect on what my days have been absorbed with and let you know the fun things that are to come.I have been trying to get material around to get my aunts quilt going and started. It's getting closer to being put on the quilt rack and getting started. I'm anxious to get it on and going. I do enjoy quilting but have never done it for somebody else. I'm priviledged to think that my aunt would be happy with me doing it. On Thursday we are hosting a grandparent's Cowboy Cookout. Last year we studied bears and then had a Bear Picnic with the grandparents all coming to join in the fun. We ate foods that bears would like and the grandparents all brought a teddy bear that had special meaning to them. Anyways, this year we studied cowboys and are going to have a cookout. The children have been memorizing some poems and have picked out some books for Alegra to read to everyone and as a surprise to the children, their grandma Deborah even sewed them some cowboy/cowgirl outfits. I'm excited to see what they look like. We'll take lots of pictures with the children with their grandparents and the day will be enjoyed very much by us who are glad that our children can still spend special moments with their grandparents.
January 9th I am helping host a chocolate/spa party for the ladies at our church at a friend's house in Elkhart. I have been working on invitations and ideas for the evening, and I think it's going to be a super relaxing and wonderful time to fellowship and enjoy each other's company.

And after that party is over, I have to get on the ball with the next Celebration of Motherhood for my dear friend, Casie Brothers. The invitations are done and handed out which is good. We are having a polka dot tea party for this Celebration, so it should be a lot of fun. I'm so excited for hers! Then the girls are going on a date with their dad to the Century Center in Southbend for a Daddy Daughter Dance. I can't wait for that either! One other family from church is going...possibly two. It should be fun for all of them and I will definitely post pictures of them all fancied up and having fun with their papa. And I will be hanging out with Josiah at the other mom's house with her son. We are hoping to watch a movie and have ice cream sundaes. Yummy! Okay, so maybe I am just looking forward to the ice cream sundaes. Hehe. The three girls above are going to have great fun hanging with their papas and being princesses for a night.

That wraps it up for the formally planned events to come. There are always events happening that aren't planned though. Isn't that what makes life exciting. Wow, not long after all that, my Celebration will be happening. I am getting excited to have this little bundle, especially since this will be our first home birth. It's going to be wonderful! That's all from the Bovees for now....until the next surprise in a day or the next unexpected event.
