Treasured Tokens Thursday

This is very special, 1) It was put together by Judi Peet for our going away gathering, 2) there's a funny story behind the funny mustache on Dan, and 3) it has special notes of encouragement from the friends who gathered. It hangs in the middle of six other smaller frames/pics that are also treasures.

Okay, the story...All night long, Ken was reminding people to write a note of encouragement or just sign the matting around our picture. Then he decided to joke around and said something like, "If you want to put a mustache on Dan, go ahead." Well, since we were with adults and not the youth group (where Ken might not have said that - or if he did, he knew someone would), he figured he was safe in saying that. Well, of all people...STELLA!!!! She said Ken told people to do it and she figured she should listen. Can you imagine? The one person, someone who has cared for our little ones for ages, put that mustache on Dan? We couldn't stop laughing all night after we found out. And every time I look at this picture, I just have a warm feeling knowing that these are people who have loved us and cared for us and our kids in some way over the years. And, of course, a chuckle or two for the fun that we have had with them...and Stella's handiwork. :)
