Dusty Days

Well, it is "haboob" season here, which means we have dust storms quite often! Last weekend we spent the day cleaning the entire apartment, including the balcony. And... of course (!!) that night we had a huge dust storm and the white balcony was brown the next morning. Because we missed making snow angels this past winter, we decided to teach Sadie Mac about a different kind of angel!! When life gives you dust storms, you make dust angels! :-)

We had just cleaned the balcony the day before this... ugh!

First Mother's Day...

WIth laundry still to be done, dishes in the sink, carrots all over her face, floors to clean from last night's "haboob" (dust storm)... I am learning how a mother's work is never done. But when she turns to me with open arms and wants to give me a big (carrot) kiss I wouldn't give it up for the world. This is my very first Mother's Day and I thank the Lord for the gift that Sadie Mac and Stephen are to me. Two red roses from them, give me a whole new meaning to the word "beautiful." What a treasure and gift today is.

We want to send special Mother's Day greetings to our mom's and grandmom's and wish we were near to give hugs and kisses! We'd also like to spend special wishes to special friends who are also celebrating their first Mother's day... We love you all... Hope you have a wonderful day and feel as special as I have.

Dancin' King

This past week we all went to a graduation party. We had a blast and there was lots of dancing! The host of the party came and grabbed Stephen's arm and pulled him up to the crowd of men to dance. The only other time I've seen Stephen dance was when he was dancing with me at our wedding! If you can't pick him out... he's the one NOT wearing the white man-dress!!
