more than rubies

I'm a teacher for teenage girls at my church

and we have an annual party to kick off our goals for the forthcoming year

and this year we decorated soley with balloons!

Twas magical!

Our theme was rising above the world

(as in worldiness, ie possesions over people,

becoming more than just what the world tells us we should be,

showing mercy to others and ourselves)

and realizing our worth is far above rubies.

As is yours, so chins up errbuddy!

I loved our Up house!

(you can't tell in the pic, but Barbie is upstairs napping

and Ken is downstairs w/the kids cooking blahaha)

& the other day

I also came across this lil vid

that I like vurrry much!

We had to blow up balloons for a chocolate project and I realized the following:

1. I totally can not blow up a balloon.

2. Once blown up I suck again for not being to tie them...LOL!
