Fun With the Heflins...

I spent Friday evening with the completely adorable and lovely Heflin girls--Houston and Karen were there too. I LOVE these precious little ladies so so much. Boy was my Friday made by spending time with this precious family. I finally got to meet and hold Gable Elizabeth for the first time too. We ate a delicious dinner prepared by Karen of Chicken Salad sandwiches, beautiful and tasty fruit salad, pretzels, and Fritos. My kind of meal! So simple, and the time was so sacred to me. I loved watching Houston and Karen play with their girls, parent them, help form sweet sweet manners, and love them to pieces. This family is such a beautiful model of what I hope mine will look like someday. In case you haven't figured it out, I think the Heflins are utterly fabulous.
We read stories, enjoyed a dance presentation to the Sound of Music by Matalee, Emery, and Haven, took pictures, ate a wonderful apple cobbler, and so much more. My favorite part of the evening was when I had the privilege of anointing Gable and praying over her. Matalee, Emery, and Haven were full of questions about which I loved. Houston did such a great job explaining the whole concept. After I prayed, Karen read the story of Soloman anointing David in 2 Samuel 16. {I think that is where the story is found, not positive though}. It was so much fun for me all around. I hope you have people in your life that make it fun, vibrant, real, and worthwhile. The Heflins are definitely some of my favorite people.
