The Blessing of Family

For the past 2.5 months (since Alayna's birth), we have been surrounded by family. This past Wednesday, we said "good-bye" to our last visitor, Randy's mom. She came to stay with us for 2 weeks while I attempted to get our house unpacked and in order. It was such a blessing for her to be here....Josiah just LOVED having "MaGa" around (see how smart he is--speaking pig latin already and he's not even 2). Not a lot of wives can say this about their in-laws, but I just love mine. They took me in and loved me right away (or at least I think they did). :-)

I was able to get quite a bit done during Irma's visit.....organized ALL of the kid's clothes, unpacked all but 10 or so boxes (just full of decorative items that will be put up later), purchased new living room furniture, and registered both the car and myself as Texans.

Thank you, Irma, for your willingness to come and stay with us. It's such a blessing to me to have such a wonderful and loving MIL.....and I'm thankful that we are within driving distance again.

Jessi I loved the slide show. I am blessed to have had the opportunity to go and "play with and enjoy" those two beautiful grandchildren. It was my pleasure. We prayed for years that the Lord would prepare the perfect helpmate for Randy and He blessed us all with you. We DO love YOU!
