the beauty of a blog

i do not remember the summer of 2010.  last thanksgiving and christmas are a blur.  oh and the 2008 presidential election?  well i hear that it was pretty momumental but i do not recall much about it.

you see all of those seasons were when we had a newborn baby at home...i was caring for these sweet blessings around the clock and attempting to find joy in all of it.
so the beauty of a blog is that the memories are here.  i can recount those times in our family's history with the click of the mouse.  and so i write and write for our family.  i post pictures and journal for me.  so that i have a spot where i can recall how rich i really am.

Walker's 1st birthday party

when we were in wichita falls back in november for a best friend's wedding, the 7 big kid cousins threw walker a 1st birthday party.  they wanted to keep it a surprise from her and made me keep her out of the living room while they prepared.  those sweet kids taped and hung up streamers and glued confetti and prepared a party for at least an hour.  it was so sweet and she was so surprised!

then grandpa led family band practice.

it was the weekend before thanksgiving but somehow we were all together and it was wonderful.
 all cuddled up in their matching pajamas for nommie and grandpa's house
