Dancing the night away

I actually had my camera handy when the kids were
being so stinkin cute dancing at Aunt Nancy and Uncle Fred's as we were celebrating a wedding shower for our niece and her fiancĂ© earlier this evening. 
Hope you enjoy the "dancing" stars!  :)

This Mother's Day

This Mother's Day has been such a sweet, sweet day.
Kevin and I traveled to Miami University with our four lovely children to attend our niece's graduation.  Spending time with my husband, children, and Kevin's family was so enjoyable. 
The weather was perfect.  The occasion grand, and the company was exceptional.
Lovely people, lovely day.

A beaming graduate!
A trio of family
Handsome cousins
Gram and her grandchildren -
Missing a few of her chicks . . . Two in Denver,
One at Purdue, and one in China . . .
Kevin's sister, mother of the graduate, saying
"The Irish Blessing" in honor of Mary's day
(Kevin is part Irish and very proud of it!)
Some silly goings on during the ceremony!  Can we say that a couple of
little boys were not paying attention??  :)
A new family picture
Today was a beautiful day.
Only one thing missing . . .
This little girl who needs her mommy and daddy . . .
Our Grace needs to be home surrounded by her forever family, enjoying days like this.

It's about time!

Life has been busy around here, to say the least! 

My mom has been struggling with some health issues and our schedule has been full with trips to the doctor for mom and our little ones and all of the fun activities that go along with happy children! 

Here are some images from the past few weeks.

Taking pictures for our dossier of some of the rooms in our home. ..
Thought you might like to see an "uncluttered" view of our home! 

These pictures make me giggle. What you don't see is all of the chaos
just beyond the lense of my camera! 
Oh well, we can pretend that our home really looks like this all of the time!


Sweet moment with Grandma
