Our weather has been so beautiful. There is a patch of flowers on my way home from the gym that I have been wanting to catch - I finally remembered to take the camera with me today. I just love these.
Today was my mother-in-law's 90th birthday. Among other celebrations, Kristen, the girls (except Care Bear who was in school), my SIL, and I - had fun at lunch together. The hostess, who was to the right of our table, got her entertainment for the day as she watched all of the commotion. Feisty sang for us, and gave her great grandma a big hug. The babies were good, but not still and quiet, of course. Which makes for more fun!
Kristen has given me the go-ahead to share a few pictures now and then, since I have gone private. I just love this one - all fresh from the bath, wearing their W*lker Mower shirts from Grandpa
I have never been able to figure out the ins and outs of chess - but here's Care Bear beating Grandpa at his own game!
I have a new nickname for Emma - "Scooter." She loves to roll herself into the most amazing places. Katie does not move around as much, but spends a lot of time on her tummy, trying to reach something just a bit beyond her reach. She is "jabberwocky" and is quite noisy! But Emma's two bottom teeth are closer to poking through. It's always going to be fun to see who does what first.
We are going on vacation Friday - back to Georgia to see what fall is like there. I just loved it last spring. We'll also be heading to South Carolina and North Carolina to visit nieces' homes. We'll spend a few days at Myrtle Beach. And, believe it or not, one of my nieces lives 15 minutes from Daily Blessings' Nancy! We are planning to get together - what a blessing indeed! Don't worry, there will be plenty of pictures to come.
I am really excited and a bit nervous - my SIL called and asked me if I would speak at her church's women's meeting the day after we arrive in Georgia. The topic is "Women in Crisis." My mind is swirling as I try to narrow down the topic! I need to carry a pad with me at all times, because I keep thinking of things I want to say, then they escape - kinda like when I'm planning a post! If you think of it, please pray for me that the Lord will use my words for someone who needs them. I feel very honored.
I think I'll sign off with a couple of the pictures DC took on his latest hike. I would like to say that the picture on my header is our own little private getaway in the hills. But no such luck.
