Back to It!

Today Margaret is back to her senior year and Andrew is back in preschool. Time for a serious TV/Netflix detox for all of us! Some of the shows I watched were The Bodyguard and An Innocent Man.

We had a nice holiday, although we traded around pretty bad colds the entire time. We went through so many tissues. I thought we were in the clear until a little cutie sneezed right in Andrew's mouth at the barber shop the other day, and the whole cycle started over again. Gah!

Here are some photos from the past few weeks. I loved our Christmas PJ's this year. SO COZY.  Looks like a laugh on Andrew's face, but it was a cry-laugh by this point on Christmas Day.

3 day jaunt to NYC with Margaret and a few friends. They took artsy photos around the city:

Tim and I pretty much rested, since Andrew was in the capable care of my sister:

New Year's "hike" in the woods was a hit with Andrew:

Have you been watching Marie Kondo on Netflix? I haven't, but I did encourage Tim to unload a ton of shirts that no longer "sparked joy." Here's Andrew wearing one of Daddy's shirts.

Tomorrow my awesome sister in law is having surgery for breast cancer. Her body has already been through so much with lyme disease. Could you please pray for a smooth surgery and complete recovery?

Thank you!

Much love to you as we enter 2019. Thank you for being here for me. I am so happy to be here for you, too.

Andrew in Tim's shirt . . .most adorable thing ever. Also, Tim has such a boyish look to him, that I often think Jack would have looked very much like his dad in his adult years. Don't know if that is easy or hard. But I always smile when I see it. 😊

Sending love and prayers and hoping for a smooth surgery for your sister-in-law. I read her story and she has been through so much.

We've had a lot of illnesses over here too - much more than usual! And Winnie was fine over break but had a 102 fever this morning, which meant no going back to school. Ugh.

Lots of love,

Happy New Year to your family! Sending prayers for your sister in law.

Healing thoughts going out to your SIL. Bless her body and help it heal!

I also love those Christmas Pajamas. Where did you find them?

May God bless your sister and your whole family.

We are in the processes of trying to grow our family through adoption. Our adoption attorney reminds us that everything is in God's hands.

We know this, but a friendly reminder is always welcomed.

I haven't visited your blog for a long time, but I saw this this morning on FB and hoped that you have also seen it. I know you'll appreciate it.
It was a joy to see Andrew and Margaret grown so much. Now I'm off to play catch-up.
