~Nataly's Quinceañera part 1~

 I'll post a recipe for "Fun Food Friday" later...right now I want to post part 1 of Nataly's Quinceañera.  Like I said, the Lord really helped and it was beautiful.  At first, Bro. Jimmy and Sis. Farly had asked me to decorate.  I was happy to do it...but I was wondering how I could do it and save money since I didn't have the table clothes, vases, etc.  Later Bro. Jimmy and Sis. Farly and I talked to Jimmy's aunt who does catering and we all decided that it would be better to use her decorations...since she has all the table clothes, chair ribbons, vases, etc. anyways.  Plus she knows where to get flower arrangements for cheap, where to order the cake, etc.  I was very relieved!  =) The day of the party Bro. Jimmy, Sis. Farly, Farly's brother Elkin, and Bro. Edgar did the decorating of the hall. 
Since they did the decorating...that gave me more time to do the things that I did.  I bought the frames, developed the pictures, and put the pictures in them for the tables, decided what specials we all would play/sing, made sure everyone was ready to play/sing, arranged the program, played for the specials, made the broc./caul. salad, made the 7 loaves of banana bread to give away as gifts for prizes, and made the 144 banana muffins as party favors.  I was also very happy that during the Quinceañera Bro. Jimmy and Sis. Farly did the talking/announcing of the next I worked behind the scenes and kept things going....but didn't have to talk in front of all of their guests. =D are the fun pictures of the nice Birthday party that Jesus helped us to have for Nataly!  Enjoy!

Lovely occasion and one that I am sure glorified the Heavenly Father. Please tell Nataly that she looked sweet. And of course all those little Dickinson's did as well in their formal attire. Looking forward to more pictures. I love you, Moma

Heather, your blog is always so awesome to read. Thank you for taking the time to let all of us so many miles away know how your life is going. I have no idea how you make the time to do all that you do and still blog... but I sure do enjoy it! :)
Nataly's Quinceanera was so beautiful. I LOVE her outfit! I also thought that Sarah's hat was super cute!!!
I can't believe how grown up all your kids are. It doesn't seem like that long ago that I was swinging Kimberly and Sarah on those swings at Gospel Center. But then again... I am married with two boys. So I gues that means I haven't stopped "growing up" either. lol!
I really enjoyed these pictures!

Dearest Heather,
I love the fact that you all had a big Quinceanera for Nataly! My Mom helped us fix up a fancy dress and we took pictures! So happy that everything turned out so beautiful! You all did a great job! Love, Hannah Klunder
