So, when Seth decided he was going to the Ball, he needed to take some lessons from his dad in tie tying.
So, last night, he went to the Vintage Ball with his friends.
Since his soccer team's color was purple, some of the players decided that purple and black would be their thing. They look pretty good. I think about 5 guys from the soccer team dressed this way. Fun times, fun memories.
My kids all chipped in (some did not know they chipped in) and bought me this sweet necklace from the Vintage Pearl. This may be my favorite gift.
And just a few days before Christmas, I found these cute slippers for Jordan from Lands End. Since she has joined the US Navy, I thought the nautical theme was so cute. Since she is so hard to buy for, I was so pleased that she loved them.
On another note...thanks to everyone who commented and sent emails regarding my parenting posts. Your prayers are much appreciated as well as your kind words. Parenting is tough. Parenting a rebellious child is 1000 times tougher. But, this I know. God knew what we were going to go through with Seth. He did not give us the obedient son like our friends have. He did not give us the mild-mannered boy across the street. He gave us Seth. And for that, I am so thankful. He knows it all from the beginning to the end.
Happy New Year!
