This Makes Me Happy...Making Others Happy

My girls made me happy last week when they hosted a Halloween party for the members of my mother's Senior Center. This was the third party they have organized, and boy was it fun. Fun for the guests. Fun for the girls. Fun all around. Madison, Peyton, and their friend Nicole all worked together to create a memorable time for the seniors. They baked cupcakes, sliced apples, made games, and bought prizes. Madison's friend Justin, aka The Easter Bunny and Uncle Sam, made an appearance as Frankenstein. : ) It was a wonderful afternoon. Next up...Christmas!




My girls...all dressed and ready to go!


Cinderella was ready too. : )


My mom was a gypsy and Aunt Margie a pirate...


Frankenstein posed for pictures with everyone...


and he was more cute than scary!

So proud of these girls.


It is a blessing to a mother's heart. The desire of my girls to make others happy...this makes me happy. : )

  5. This is so so sweet, and as Pope Francis recently said, we all need to be more aware of the elderly and lonely in our society. Good work girls!

  7. Yay girls!!! (and Frankenstein!) I loved this. I loved the planning and how it all turned out! Those older folks love these things! Our homeschool group used to dress up and parade inside a nursing home for the elderly, they loved it! (the lady in that town that hosted it, doesn't anymore, her kids are big now:)

  14. Hi Billie Jo! My mother-in-law and my aunt (age 95) are and were in nursing homes, and they LIVED for this stuff. I can't tell you what a blessing you were to everyone in that place. And such loving hearts too.

    Your children will always remember this, and I just know they will pay it forward some day. I have to ask though...where was your costume??

    Thank you for welcoming me back friend :) It's good to be back!
