My bosses are my great friend Brooklyn's in laws. Our office consists of 4 individuals including myself and at times not all 4 of us are in the office at the same time. I think we are becoming a little family though! Thursday Ava and Stella (Brooklyn's girls which would be my boss's grandchildren! just in case you couldn't figure that one out) had their program at the children's day out center. Brooklyn is so good to include me in the things her girls do. I love her girls and they warm my heart. I see them when they stop by the office and at church. Brooklyn does such a great job with them. I'm so grateful she lets me be a little involved and when I'm down with not having children of our own, I love those sweet children a little more and I'm grateful a little more for our friendship.
I was afraid both of them would get cold feet. But they didn't. They sang their songs and said their parts so clearly and loudly!
It was the day and night with the Gortons!! Thursday night we piled into 2 cars with Brooklyn and Jorge and the children along with Brooklyn's friend, Courtney and headed to Chickasha to eat at Jakes Ribs and view the Chickasha Festival of Light.
I am so blessed to have the relationship with Brooklyn and her family. I have to admit throughout the night I was inwardly wishing these were my children I was leading through the park. Bryan and I loved hearing the joy in their voices and the excitement they had. Children say the cutest things sometimes. They are not mine but because my friend is so kind to me, she allows me to borrow and practice on hers!! Thank you Brooklyn and Jorge. My heart is truly full today!!
Brooklyn sent me some of her pictures of the night:Bryan is really working on keeping his eyes open!!!
The Ladies and Boston!
The festival has this really tall red Christmas tree you walk under and look up into it. Everyone likes to look up into the tree and spin! Last year I had a terrible fall so it was the joke of the night this year. I was very careful. It seemed everyone stayed close by me to make sure I did not have an accident! :)It looks like I'm giving Ava a big bear hug, but she had asked me to spin her around. So of course, I had to oblige. Bryan was nearby though!!
I hope you are all having a great weekend!!
