Aubrey's Gift

.. ... ... .. ... .. .... .. .. ...  .. .. ... .. .. ... .. .. .. .
So, she was invited to her first ever Birthday Party, a friend - outside of family.  It was for a little gal friend from school.  Her brother has gone to two, no make that three!, birthday's now and so FINALLY it was her turn.  She was so very excited..

She talked to me about what she wanted to give this little gal as a gift.

I was trying to help her sort through her options and finally she decided that she wanted to give this little gal a skirt.  "One made from you, Mom!"

A generous man will prosper.  
He who refreshes others will he himself be refreshed. 
~ Proverbs 11:25

After I spoke with the girls mother to get an idea of her size and favorite color(s)... Aubrey wanted to pick out the fabric.

 (That's my girl!)
She had so much fun going through my stash..  she settled on a "vintage piece" of feed sack cloth.

Little girls, simple style skirt

Of course, we needed a card to attach to the gift.  She set right to work..

I love this girl's artistic abilities...  
I keep thinking about writing a children's book with Aubrey as my illustrator. :)
Soon after...the "Pixie and Pirates" Birthday Party...

Aubrey and Jayne set up their own version of a birthday party!

I walked in on the "event" and had to turn around and go find my camera.  Too bad, I wasn't invited to stay although I was asked to provide the refreshments.

Of course, I'll provide catering...

"You're the best Cooker, MOM!"
She says with a smile.

Pretzels and kisses were an easy thing to send their way..
It was perfect!
Aubrey's gift!

This one sure knows how to give out compliments.

Oh, and she wears the best smile, too!

She refreshes me..

**Thank you for your prayers...
Aubrey is feeling way better and pretty much back to her normal self..
Caleb is "home from school" again today and still not so well..
Jayne - so far! - has been kept at bay.  Thank the Good Lord!
