100 years old!

Today we celebrated Mrs. Essie's 100th birthday! She is one of the ladies that we visit once a month. It always interesting when we get to see her, she has so many great stories to tell us. We can learn so much from her and her example. The ladies ministry put on the party for her, with my wonderful sister, stacy, heading it all up. She did an amazing job! The party was a great success, with tons of people there! Stacy took her honors class to Mrs. Essies house twice to contuct an interview. Her class made a video presentation and a scrapbool for her. It was great, something to be treasured.  Judy and Annette helped her get it all set up. Stacy wanted to do a "cookie bar." It was a great idea and we had a LOT of cookies. Here are a few pictures from today.
