Friday, my Sister's youngest son returned home from his Mission.
(Elder Justin Bagshaw...fresh from the Alabama, Birmingham Mission, my bother-in-law, their granddaughter, their son-in-law, and my sister)
We went up to greet him and see everyone at the airport. It was then that my Sister pointed out it had been SIX months since I had posted anything on my blog. REALLY, six months?...and sadly, she was right.
We've done a lot in the past six months. Experienced the holidays of Halloween through Mother's Day.
Jim and I went to DisneyWorld with all of his siblings for a Family Reunion in January.
(two of Jim's siblings are missing from this picture. One who didn't make the trip do to conflicts, and one because they were serving a mission....in Orlando....which is why we went there in the first place. He and his wife DID play with us a little bit....just never when we got a photo taken.)
Then to Disneyland in April with Denae and the girls,
Matt and friends,
and Jim and I with Xander. We had a GREAT time.
All MY kids have had birthdays, and I did too, (but we won't mention that.)
Denae competed in a State HOSA competition and is now heading to Nationals...in Orlando, FL...next month. Pretty exciting stuff for her. She is trying to raise money by doing Photography sessions. If you are interested, check out her blog HERE. She does wonderful work...and it would go to a good cause....at least I think so!
Anyway...yes, I'm still alive and doing well. I will work to be more diligent in posting and reading...as I truly enjoy reading everyone else's blogs. I hope some enjoy mine. And you never know....I stumbled upon something this evening that really made my day. A total surprise!!! It brought tears to my eyes. Not to toot my own horn, that's NOT why I'm linking to this, but the comments by her friend were just as great. Check it out here. A wonderful surprise.
