Girl's Retreat at the Cabin


I spent a wonderful evening with some of my daughters last weekend.  We hired an expensive photographer to come take our pictures . . . yeah right . . . April just held her camera with her outstretched arm and told us all to look our most beautiful selves.

How did our evening together go?  This is how my daughter April described it. . .  

"Last weekend my mom and some of my sisters had a little retreat at the cabin. It was a very solemn occasion. We wore our fancy clothes, lots of make up and worried about being perfect...


We piled on the jackets and blankets

enjoyed yummy food

and drank lots of hot chocolate.

We laughed and cried together until our eyes couldn't stay open any more.

We made flower hair clips with fabric scraps all morning long, then finally decided we should go see if our homes were smoking craters.

I'm so blessed that my mom and my sisters are my best friends.

I will cherish you forever!

(we missed the sisters who couldn't come-- don't worry, we'll do it again soon!) "
