|Our Jessica and I took a group of the girls from church ice skating. Yeah, we are fun wherever I go. Be jealous.|
I was blessed to be able to attend a special Mother-Daughter Banquet with all my girls! Jessica once again planned an amazing formal banquet to cap off the Bible Study and Etiquette lessons she and Joyce did weekly during the summer for the girls. Jessica MADE Nancy take off her shoes so she wouldn't tower over her. (I'm sure glad this is my Christmas letter and I can add details like that! Ha!) It is totally okay if you want to tell me how completely blessed I am to have this many gorgeous girls, I mean I know it but how can you not notice it too?!?
|Meme and I watching JoJo's T-ball game. She likes to be cheered for and has specific things she wants us to say or not say. We do our best to accommodate her. Though sometimes I may just possibly "forget" to do it "right".|
|While the boys were away, the girls played! We had a Girls Night In with facials, manicures, tye-dying shirts, snacks, and dancing! I think this needs to be an annual event!|
For our 16th Anniversary, Michael and I were able to sneak away for a long weekend. We rented to sweetest cabin on the edge of the Shawnee National Forest beside a winery. It was absolutely as lovely as it sounds!
|We took a visit to Louisville to meet Peter!!! This boy spent a few weeks in the NICU and gave us all quite a scare. We loved passing him around and hanging out with his big sisters! Praise the Lord, Peter is now healthy!|
|In general I spent much of my summer like this: watching my kids swim while I sat in a chair at the edge of our tiny beach with a book. Yeah, it was as amazing as it sounds.|
|This is a chimp at the Albuquerque Zoo. Please ask my girls what is in his mouth. This is probably the most memorable moment of our trip. You're welcome|
|I drove and the girls "helped" on our road trip.|
