There's a reason I haven't been blogging as much recently---I've been uploading and editing pictures. A TON of them!
Between being sick and out of town, I had to catch up and get all of these ready to show you. So, if you're not interested in pictures, please come back later. If you are interested in pictures, get a soda and wrap up in a blanket because there are lots of them!
First, here are some shots from the last couple of weeks:
Here are some pictures from our weekend trip to see Kurt's family:
Here are some pictures from a few days ago when my mom came to visit:
We tried on the tutu that Kurt's mom made for Evy to wear for her next photography session (at the end of this month). Adorable!
Mrs. Pam also made Evy an ADORABLE shopping cart/highchair cover. The pattern is little retro 1950's cowgirls! We tried Evy in a highchair for the very first time at Cracker Barrel. She did great!
I have to share this blessing with you. A quick backstory: my family always hates to see the elderly dining alone, and one time when we were traveling we stopped by a man's table to talk with him (it also happened to be at Cracker Barrel). We found out that he had recently lost his wife and that he was a veteran. We loved talking with him!
Okay, back to present time. We saw this man eating by himself, and we just had to say something to him. My mom was walking by with Evy and stopped to say hello. We ended up inviting him to sit with us, and guess what? It was the 10th anniversary of his wife's death and he fought in World War II at Normandy. I got chills as he told us about running out of the Higgins boat (where the flap came down, soldiers ran out and were literally gunned down immediately). This was the second time that this had happened to us, stepping out of our comfort zones and we end up meeting two men who really needed encouragement. Mr. Barnes was just precious, and we got his address so we can keep in touch. He has no grandchildren, so we hope to spend some time with him. Even though it's hard sometimes, just talk with people. You never know how God will bless you!
We love Gigi!
I have just a few more pictures to show once I have them uploaded. But here's a sneak peek....
