Lots of hugs were going around and I was trying hard not to cry!
Hayley and Maci met in Daisy scouts when they were just 5 years old. Ever since then we have gotten together each month and become great friends. It has been such a joy watching the children grow up together, and now we get to do it again!
Kathleen was very excited to get her birthday gift as she loves to dance!
Kathleen and Hayley both enjoyed the Christmas presents as well! Games and Squinkies!
It is always a warm and welcoming environment when we visit. We are always made to feel at home. Lori always makes the most delicious meals and has activities for the kids to enjoy. This time she let them make their own pizzas!
Can't wait for you guys to come here next for more fun times!
Since Owen is still recovering from his surgery and has anxiety issues we put him in the girls bathroom since it is fairly large while we were gone. We put a gate up to keep him from scratching the door. When we came home we found this:
Still managed to get to the door frame! Poor little guy...
Kathleen was wound up and was getting her PJ's out of her drawer, so she yelled "MOM!" and I walked in to see this......
And she was quite pleased with herself....LOL
Gotta love these moments :-)
Before we left to go there the girls were playing the Wii with Jerry. Just had to share this photo of Hayley's hair, lol
Kathleen was decked out in her Ravens gear (too bad they lost...)
We also stopped to get gas on the way over and I was glad I had my camera for this memory. Ever since the girls were little Jerry has always drawn on their window when he gets gas. This is still a highlight for Kathleen.
It's the little moments like this we cherish... These pictures of our lives that we can freeze and capture these memories and reflect...
A Dad so amazing he will do anything to make his girls smile no matter how silly he may look in the process...Being a great sport and letting me post these moments to have forever....
I hope you all take the time today to treasure these moments in your families, and to count your blessings.
Have a great day!
