On a good note...

My brother came to town!

He lives in New Mexico and was way overdue for a visit.

Unfortunately, he came the day after the kids Dad fell sick.

I missed a lot of time with him but that just gives me a great excuse for another visit soon :)

On his last day here the family went to the lake.

Shawn taught one eager little girl how to kayak.

Looks like we will be buying a boat soon.

Thanks Uncle Shawn ;)

This would be my Dad trying to pass his years of wisdom into a 10 yr old...ha!

I could only guess what they are chatting bout~

I was there...sleeping under a quilt.

Catching up on some much needed   zzzzzzzzzzz.

It was a beautiful day!

Perfect for reflecting on how precious life is~

I'm blessed to have family around to always lend a helping hand.

I'm blessed to have blogger friends like YOU!

We felt your prayers and they are being answered daily.

Just today Kaylee called from the hospital....

her Daddy said...

"I love you Kay"

Baby steps...we'll take em!

  15. “I love the idea of movement, but this White Bandage Dress can be especially difficult to achieve with a knit because they’re all Herve Leger Outlet going to be formed to the body. So we love to add movement Beer Costume with these bands that emulate fringe, and the shine of the beads gives a further Herve Leger Dresses illusion of movement.”Oh and what was Lubov herself wearing to work yesterday as I captured all this? An Herve Leger moto jacket: the perfect synthesis of what she calls “girls run the world” power and never-stop movement.


Thanks for stopping by. It's always so nice to hear from you.
