So, as you may have noticed, my blog has been quite crazy - huge pictures, no pictures, random posts - blah. No fun. My blog flipped out, happily, we are all better and operating normally!
I will start with a nice little post of some special people to me :D
You may remember this post I did of Neil, Jess and Nyah a little while ago.
Well, I was thrilled when I got asked to do their whole family for their Christmas card! Here are just a few we took:They are quite the gorgeous, and also quite fun :D
Love you guys!
And now for Lauren. Bearface. Bearliest Bear. The Prettiest Princess in the whole Kingdom. Mommy's Baby. She just turned 5 :(
I so clearly remember when she was born. My mom was two weeks late, but did not want to be induced. We were waiting and waiting and waiting. On Wednesday, November 2o she finally went to the Maternity Center. But, my mom has had some pretty long labors, and none of us were sure when the baby would actually be born.
I was home with the rest of the kiddos and we were all in major anticipation. When I woke up, the first thing I did was call my dad. No answer, rats. I called probably 10 times and it was killing me. Did she even have the baby yet? Was everything fine? I had no idea.
While we were getting the kids ready for school, the doorbell rang. Kevin answered it and it was probably one of the happiest moments of my entire life. Mom, Dad and Baby Lauren were at the door - we weren't even sure if that baby was born yet! And here they were! At the door!
The best surprise ever. Bar none :D
And it has been five years of blessing after blessing with this little girl. I love her with all my heart and I don't know why on earth God decided to bless our family with her, but I sure am grateful!
ps. This is a card that Lauren and Shannon wrote for me, on Lauren's birthday:ooooh, i love it :)
