~Happy 15th Birthday to our Sarah!~

15 years ago this week, Jesus saw fit to BLESS our Home with our precious Sarah!
Sarah is a sweetheart.
She loves Jesus with her whole heart, she's a good worker, loves to clean and bake, loves to help Mommy and others, Sarah quotes JUST THE RIGHT QUOTE from stories we have heard...RIGHT AT THE RIGHT TIME...making our family howl laughing, Sarah is very crafty with her hands, and is an all around blessing to all those who know her.~
 ~Happy Birthday, Sweet Sarah.  You bring a lot of JOY to our family!~
~Months ago, Sarah and I talked about how fun a TEA PARTY would be to celebrate her 15th birthday.
However, I knew that I would be quite sTrEsSed in my life at the time of her birthday, trying to sort through this whole house, clean, pack suitcases, weigh suitcases, say SAD goodbyes, etc. (WITH JUST A FEW DAYS LEFT...PRAYERS APPRECIATED THAT WE CAN GET IT ALL DONE!!!!!)

So, months ago I talked Aunt Caro about finding a tea room in which to have Sarah's tea party.
Later, Aunt Caro said that she and Aunt Yoli had been talking that they wanted to plan a SPECIAL tea party for Sarah at Aunt Yoli's house.  How very THOUGHTFUL and FUN!
Here's LOTS of pics for you to enjoy.
~I made some blackberry and blueberry muffins to take to the tea party at Aunt Yoli's house.~
~And Abigail was my HELPER.  ;-) ~
~I made some French Macarons as a little party favor for each of the ladies at the tea party.~

~And I made strawberry scones.~

What a sweet and fun gift.~

~Sarah has a record player in our U.S.A home (Thank you, Dear Kemps!! :-) and LOVES records.
There is a record player and record here in this house that Sarah had fallen in LOVE with.
So, Aunt Caro found that record on line and bought it for us, (we paid her back) and U. Charlie picked up that record for us to give to Sarah for her birthday.  She was SO HAPPY!~
~U. Leo and A. Caro, Jonathan and Valen gave Sarah an adorable teapot for ONE person.~

Jesus and our Dear Chinese friends gave Sarah a WONDERFUL 15th birthday!
Dear Uncle Charlie and Aunt Yoli
Uncle Leo and Aunt Caro (and family)
for all you did to make Sarah's 15th birthday UNFORGETTABLE!!  :-)

Wow! This was one gorgeous Tea and Birthday Party for you, dear Sarah! You have made more memories in your time in Argentina than could have been thought possible! In later years, these fun times will coordinate with places and people in many different ways, and you will realize that your Heavenly Father planned it all. I wouldn't be surprised if little Miss Valen is a part of your life, later on. The two pictures she made for you and her were such a cute idea. All of your birthday gifts were really special, weren't they? And your genuine Chinese Tea Party was absolutely elegant! How kind of your two sweet Chinese aunts to make up such a beautiful Tea Party for all of you girls! You will never forget them and they will never forget you. Jesus knows how to make our lives so happy and special. I am glad that you have been the recipient of such a special birthday celebration on your 15th birthday. Love, Your Grandma in North America
