My family (minus Chloe, she was throwing a fit)
We were anticipating everyone's arrivals, Sadie was on this pillar with binoculars... Yes we get that anxious!! I was right there with her, waiting for my brother to show up!
And the guest of honor Baby Luke!!! Coming in March!!! I'm sure my sis got sick of me touching her belly, I couldn't help myself! This is nothing compared to how it's going to be once he's out of the womb, just warning you both!
I can't explain, but I will try, just how much my family means to me, EVERYTHING!!Rachel and Jenny help out so much with the girls, playing with them, baths, dressing, brushing teeth, feeding, I start to feel a little guilty. But then I realize that they aren't around the girls daily, so it's their pleasure to spend so much time with them. (Rachel and Sadie playing Barbies)
John and I married when I was 16 years old, so I'm used to running my house a certain way, and back in the day, I used to stress when a lot of people came to visit, cleaning like crazy not enjoying them! But let me tell you God has changed me so much that I can now relax, laugh, and most of all enjoy it all! I realize how blessed I am to have a family like mine! Where God is the center, the joy, love and peace we feel is nothing that this world can give!
My dad took my camera to get shots, we try to go to the hill at least once, hiking up and down, then of course my thick skinned brother Jim, jumps in the Pacific Ocean, he's crazy it's soo cold it literally stings my feet!
We had a whole new meaning of Thanksgiving this year, Johnny and Rachel left yesterday afternoon, but we got a call about an hour into their trip, they got rear-ended! The car got smashed, bad! So my parents were off to help them, Rachel is 6 months pregnant, she was taken to the hospital by ambulance, Thank God, baby Luke, and momma were fine! Johnny and Rachel woke sore, but nothing major! We are all so thankful! Here is the car! It's declared totaled
