Right after PandaJOY came to live with us back in February I happily joined with my buddies in what was once MOPS, but now is known by an even cuter name at our church. Today was the luncheon for the last meeting of the year until all resumes in the fall. I AH-DORE the chicks at my table and LOVE laughing my head off with them! This HUGE painted terra cotta pot was a gift to all the participants and the darling earring hanger was made our mentor mom (who is six years older than me...LOL!!!) and she also handmade dangly earrings for each of us at our table. Everything was topped off with great fajitas and dessert! Great distraction from the reality that PandaPop is at the jury trial for PJ today.

Candy and games.
Those are the simple things in life.
Easy decisions, sugary goodness and laughter.
That's us today.
Tomorrow starts the jury trial for PandaJOY. God is in control, but the realities that lie before us is that:
1. PJ could be taken away from us and given back to the abusive family from which she was rescued.
2. She could be placed in Permanent Managing Conservatorship meaning that she'd remain in our care as a foster child until she turned 18. That would entail all the continued visitations, we could not adopt her and she couldn't take our last name.
3. The parental rights would be terminated and we'd be fully able to adopt her and in six months she'd officially be ours.
You do the math on which number we are praying for. Thanks for your prayers!!!

I have had the same black plastic Farberware kitchen utensils since we got married almost 19 years ago. They've been very good to me and are still fine to use, however these very inexpensive, heavy-duty beauties were at IKEA* today for $4.99! LOVE them!

This is the heavenly heaven that I raved about a couple of posts ago. FAGE Greek yogurt and honey. PandaPop doesn't care for it. Says it's "too....pungent, strong...WHOA." I, who could take a spoon and eat rich frosting straight from the container, trans fat & all, LOVE this rich CREAMY good-for-me-goodness! Each bite of thick creamy tart yogurt with this some-kind-of-wonderful honey they have conveniently in a cute little compartment right beside the yogurt brings me to my knees. Yes, it's that good to me.

Today is Children's Day at our beloved church. The children's choir sang this morning in both services and will be singing their worship experience program this evening that they've worked on all school year. The darling water bottles with our church's name on them were given out from PandaPop with Snickers candy bars in them as a fun gift just for being a part of the ministry of our church. Days like this make children's ministry so fun!
