A Summer Gone ....

Hello All!

As I begin to type I can not believe how long it has been since I have blogged. We have been so busy and it seems there has been no time to slow down. Now that school has started I'm looking forward to more time to post more often. Where did the summer go? Did it go as fast for you as it did for us? It is always bittersweet for me when school starts. So happy that my children are healthy and able to attend the next grade...but oh so sad to see them growing up and changing.

Since Fridays FFF (Favorite Foto Friday) was our children with "Friends With Stuffing" these are a few of our boy taken with his stuffed animals. He has grown so much over the summer. I always bring one of his own stuffed animals when I get his picture taken. Jonathan is such a "ham" when it comes to his picture being taken by someone else other than myself. He just laughs and laughs when the girl at the studio takes it ....but if I bring out the camera...LOOK OUT! This is one of the things I am going to try again since the summer is over. Another thing I'm going to try is "new" foods. I tend to give him what I know he will I'm going to make an effort in introducing him to more foods. I will let you know how our adventure goes. :)
Even though I have not blogged much over the summer I have kept up with all of yours. I enjoy so much reading all about my blogging friends in blog world! Seeing your children grow and change brings a smile to my heart. Even though I did not comment much..know that I did visit and I promise I am going to be a better blogging friend!




Love and hugs......

Lord, remind me how brief my time on earth is. Remind me that my days are
numbered. You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand. My
entire lifetime is just a moment to you; at best, each of us is but
a breath.

Psalm 39:4-5

Hello, Girlfriend!

I've SURE MISSED checking in with you. Things have been BUSY here for us too. I'm with you, a little sad to see summer go, and also thankful for the orginazition of our time now that things are "back to normal."(Whatever THAT is.. hehe)

Your grandson is BEAUTIFUL! Such a sweet little man. As always, his eyes are AMAZING!

I've missed A LOT of "FFF's" recently... I'm looking forward to jumping back in there with you guys.

Okay, I'll go for now.. it's REALLY LATE and I'm FINALLY getting sleepy again. (Having a little trouble finding rest tonight)


Jennifer said...

YAY!! I'm so glad to see some recent pictures of your little man! What a cutie!!!

Carrie said...


He is getting SO big and very handsome of course.

Enjoy Labor Day.

Check my blogs because I am going to be organizing SBP if you want to do it again.

I was so glad to see an update - I have missed you and Jonathan. :)

Oh, Amy, what a very handsome little grandson you have! His smile is just precious. He just looks like he is happy all the time. Those are such great pictures.

Have a great week!

Amy... it is really hard to keep up, isn't it? If it wasn't for FFF each week, I definitely would not be able to check in with all my friends! Jonathan is getting SO BIG! I love the little bells on his shoe laces... I used to have those for my big kids too and loved to hear them jingle around the house. Now, it seems that most baby shoes are velcro, so Bug never really had them.

Thanks for continually checking in with us all the time! As you know with teenagers and toddlers, the weeks fly by and some days it is good to be sure you got everybody fed and in bed on time!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hey Amy!!

Thanks so much for stopping by to check up on us, and all your sweet kind comments! What a blessing you are.

Oh, your grandson is just BEAUTIFUL. I can't even use the word handsome. (sorry!!)

He is the BEST dressed little boy I know!! I didn't think it would be possible this child could get any cuter, but HE DOES!

I'm looking forward to dressing my Cole up like Jonathan!


Tonya said...

Hey there girlfriend! I'm STILL lagging behind in my posting. I've FINALLY done one for today, but now I need to go and visit all my bloggy buddies. So MUCH to do.. so LITTLE time to do it! ;-)

Oh, I can't wait to hear how getting your grandson to try new food turned out. Let us know? =-)


Tonya said...

Thanks for the sweet comment.. Now it looks like we're gonna have to "push" YOU to update??? O:-)

Hehehe.. just kidding. I know how busy life can keep you.

I hope all is well with you.

Amy -

I wanted to say THANKS SO VERY MUCH for celebrating Brent's birthday with us. It was such a blessing to know that so many took a moment to remember him.

I hope all is well with you..
