Bethany's parents are raising her to be a future keeper at home and with this in mind, they planned a Hope Chest Party for her thirteenth birthday! The guests were encouraged to bring a gift that Bethany could tuck away in her Hope Chest along with a recipe to help start her own cookbook!
The party started with a wonderful luncheon which was prepared by Bethany's mother and her helpers.
Here the girls are trying to crack an egg into a bowl or cup blind folded!
It was so neat to see the girls cheerfully donning their aprons for each game! They all looked so pretty and femine!
There was not a lack of little ones either!
These little girls were kept occupied for an hour and a half or more with this car! I got the biggest kick out of watching them!
Babies were everywhere!! Infants down to toddlers were welcomed and loved over!
The girl on the left is Haviland, Bethany's younger sister! She calls me "Ashley Casserole" and I in turn call her "Haviland Francostein"! It's an ongoing joke between our two families!
"Momma and Friend"
Momma and I had been asked months earlier about speaking at the party which we readily agreed to. Momma was asked to bring a challenge and I was asked to share my testimony with the group. I shall post the testimony down below.
All in All it was a beautiful party that brought honor and glory to God.
