Five years ago today.....

.....I moved into my very own house.  In some ways I can hardly believe it has been 5 years......and in others, it seems like I've lived here forever.  It hasn't always been easy to manage, but I'm glad I made the decision to do it!

(this pic is from when I bought the house.....guess I need to take updated photos, huh?)

The Girls

After almost two long years, The Girls were finally all together again this past weekend.  We were also joined by 9 month old Kellen since he couldn't be away from his mama.

Katie bought a house this summer, so we all descended on her abode this time.  Sara and Kellen flew in on Friday afternoon, I picked them up at the airport and we headed to Tarrant County.  Sarah arrived shortly after we did. Mollie made it about 9 pm and then Dara arrived near midnight.

Saturday morning we got up early and headed to Southlake Town Square for a photo shoot with Paige. We wandered around, sang, danced, and played while Paige snapped away. It was a fun couple of hours and I'm anxious to see how the photos turned out!

After the photo shoot, we headed over to the Gaylord Texan hotel for lunch. Yummy Mexican food and lots of fun scenery to enjoy....Mollie captured so much of it so very well!

After lunch, we headed home for naps, playing with Kellen, talking, singing, relaxing......

Katie fed us well.....even amid a small kitchen situation involving burned ramen noodles, then a ramen package explosion!

Sunday we had a big breakfast then headed to church.  After church we had our marathon session of sharing, singing, praying, etc.  Monday morning was sad as we all started to head back home.  These girls really do breathe life into me.  I love them all so so much!
