|So fun to get to host a baby shower for these two beautiful mamas. They're both heading back to the states this week and will be sorely missed...|
|Tears come quick when I think of this one leaving. My near neighbor Jeannine is a precious sister, an extraordinary gift of a friend in my life. Good thing she'll be back!!|
|Jeannine's big girl is Marian's favorite little friend and I'm so grateful Marian's been able to be a "mama's helper" once a week to help auntie Jeannine through a very busy season as she's been preparing to head back to the states.|
In the middle of moving apartments (for these dear friends) the dads took a morning off on a national holiday here to play baseball with the local university team and mamas and kiddos went to cheer them on. It was a good thing for all of us to take a break!
|I love how this delighted-in daughter finds and celebrates beauty (and fun! She's big on creating and indulging in FUN!)|
|Finally, a smile! This is her look 99.2% of the time... I'm really not liking her fussy camera, no-smiling stage. Oh, but I do absolutely adore and delight in her!!|
|cherished, sweet boy... closing in on the seven year mark!|
|quiet smile on our big guy. oh how I love him!|
