A ship sails and I stand watching till she fades on the horizon and someone at my side says
She is gone.
Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as large now as when I last saw her.Her diminished size and total loss from my sight is in me, not in her.
And just at that moment, when someone at my side says she is gone, there are others who are watching her coming over their horizon and other voices take up a glad shout -There she comes!
That is what dying is.
A horizon and just the limit of our sight.

Mckenna had an Art party. Anyone who knows Mckenna knows she loves her art! This was a great birthday party theme. Here are some pictures to show how we pulled it together:
I strung up clothesline around the whole party area for art to be hung as the guests finished their masterpieces. I did this so we could see all the fun art, but also it made it so I wouldn't have to use a surface to dry paintings or crafts.
I made an artists pallet cake. Not my most wonderful creation ever, but it turned out pretty cute and went with the theme.
Usually there is snow on the ground by Mckenna's birthday, but this year it was quite warm and we had just finished raking a huge pile of leaves. The kids all went outside to enjoy the leaves. FUN!
It was such a fun birthday party. It's a great theme for a party!

Hello. I'm back. We are done with family visits now which is a let down considering that the holidays are right around the corner. We had a blast with Grandma and Grandpa Mathie last week. We have also celebrated Halloween, Jason's birthday and Mckenna's birthday. Of course I have included pictures of all the fun.
