The headache came too close to when we’d have to leave for the lake. Boooooo.

Thankfully she was feeling right as rain not too long later. We still wanted to celebrate our sweet sister and her public announcement of her new life in Christ. So I did what every good friend would do. I hopped on Pinterest. After discovering this awesomely clever idea we popped the kids in Bessie, our large family van, and headed out shopping! We had candy to buy!
