just joy...

Every time I hold Lydia, I love her more. How can you love a baby so completely, then love her even more?

She's just beautiful....

I have pictures of the princesses holding her, and of Jon with her, and of Mali...but the internet out here on this rural road is not good today, and it takes forever and a day to load a picture, the screen keeps freezing up...

Today I shall go to the store because we are almost out of milk and bread and avocados and bananas and butter. I need to get flour and sugar and chocolate chips because I am baking 200 cookies for a wedding that Emily's company is catering this weekend. Samuel James is able to leave Fort Drum again for the weekend, so I am picking him up on Friday sometime. I will also help with the catering event at some point, then there are two baseball games that our church is providing concession workers for...then Sunday I have to drive Paul to the airport, then Sam back to Fort Drum.

Never a dull moment, that's for sure.

Evelyn Joy got her driving permit yesterday!

She is happy about it, I promise. She just didn't love her crazy mama snapping her picture on the sidewalk downtown.

She wants to go driving, and to the library...we found the missing dvd, and only have one book overdue! The little girls are begging for books to read...

It's also cousin Danielle's birthday, and we might do something with her today. No, never a dull moment.

Jonathan is skyping with is sister Abigail, who is adjusting nicely to her yearlong Norway visit.'s too busy in here to write right now.
