A Long Update

Let me just say that I love that my photos always remind me of what I have done, because without some kind of reminder my brain would take forever to access that information!

Just call me Dory (like on Finding Nemo) I have short term memory loss! LOL!!!

So, I've been MIA for about a month now - I am fine - thank you for your concern! I actually (finally) moved! Very exciting news for my entire family...

... but let's get the details in between....

  • I bought jeans that gave me back A SHAPE!!!
  • My little brother turned 13!
  • My 3rd little niece was dedicated to the Lord at my sister's church. She's such a Godsend. (Picture from my sister the photographer :o)
  • I lived in my old (smaller) house with my in-laws for 2 1/2 weeks and survived!
  • My Grandpa on my mom's side passed away - he was the GREATEST example of someone who loved Jesus with all their mind, soul and strength - he was beautiful all the time!
  • We went to his memorial and got to visit with all my long lost Uncles (wonderful!) my kids even played with some of my Uncle's kids - it was so cute!
  • My kiddos got a tummy bug right when my in-laws were living with us and we all survived!!! (This pic my daughter drew on her Magna-Doodle - it's supposed to be of a cat drinking water - but I thought it was fitting for the subject :o)
  • A good friend of the family passed away from a virus that was eating his heart :o(
  • Another good friend was injured serving in Afghanistan, he is now in the U.S. and we have been praying.
Very interesting month for me.

Isn’t it amazing how much “change” can happen in one month. Praying for you and those mentioned in your bog.

I’ve been pretty MIA around my blog & even more so reading others. Congrats on the move! I’m sure you’re having fun settling in, can’t wait to see pics of the new scrap space! =] I’m sorry for the losses you’ve recently had. I hope your friend recovers well.

WhooHoo….looking good in those jeans, Carolyn! I miss you…and congratulations on your move! I just moved myself on Oct. 4, so I feel your excitement/exhaustion from a move….it’s fun but then you have all the chaos and unpacking, which I don’t love. You’ll have to let me know your new address & phone number if it changed, so we can keep in touch! We need to get together…and you’ve been on my heart a lot lately, so call or e-mail me when you get a chance, OK???

Love ya!
