|Just look at that smile and the light in his eyes! Andrew is doing so well and so happy! That makes missing him so much better. We chatted as a family for about an hour and a half. Counting down to July for sure!! Love you Andrew!|
Quentin really is a ham and is very good at faking sleep…Grandpa plays along anytime too!
We took Christmas to Seattle early as it was our “Off” year. I did want to see the kids open their quilts though. Hillary says that he sleeps with it every night.
|This is not a fake and just look how very sweet that is…so worth all the hours of cutting, sewing and unpicking and sewing some more!|
Andrew has been in the mission field just over a year and its time for a few new shirts…I hope he loves these, I do!! I wanted him to know every day that he is supported, loved and thought of as he is buttoning his shirt or pressing it.
Its been a wonderful week leading up to Mother’s Day and then Mother’s Day weekend…its been wonderful because I have spent it with a couple of my children!!
To start the week off right Hillary and Quentin came to visit on Thursday…we had such a fun fun time. Spent the weekend in Monterey at the aquarium, Q seemed very uncomfortable with most if not all of the sea creatures.
These things make me smile….
The smell of spring
A rainy day and a good book
A text that says, “I love you”
Monday morning emails from Andrew
Looking at my fabric
Turning on my sewing machine
Walking out of the gym
A bike ride along the ocean
Visits from my kids
Weekends with Don
Going to bed
Walking into a massage
Birds chirping outside my window
Holding my grand babies
Reading my scriptures
Walking into the temple
A movie that makes me cry
A book that I can’t put down
A yummy salad
Lunch with friends
An afternoon at the hair salon
A clean house
The sound of laundry in the machine
Spending time on FamilySearch.org
Our family text group
Oranges hanging from our tree
When all kids are happy…
I could go on and on! My favorite saying is “Look for the good in everyday”…as we do this a smile should be on all our faces!
side note…the backpack (Northface) was stolen and only the contents of the backpack were sent to Andrew.
