I have not fallen off the face of the earth...yet!

I cannot believe it has been over a week since I last posted something about our beautiful life! There are seriously not enough hours in a day. So sorry! We were on vacation last week. My intention was to post while we were gone, but our beloved friends kept me going from the time we rose in the morning until way past time for bed. We had a fantastic time. Love hanging out with great friends! It's been crazy ever since we returned, still trying to get the house back in order from the new floors (love, love, love them!), taking Emma for an EEG (haven't heard anything yet), riding in the boat in the evening and hanging out with more wonderful people, and the list goes on. I'm so behind on emails that it will take me a whole day to sift through them. Oh well, it's been a good week.

We went to Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, Texas. (Grapevine is an absolutely adorable town, I might add. Great restaurants, great shopping, and oh, so cute!) Great Wolf Lodge was guh-rate fun for the kids. The place is kid-geared all the way, down to the spa for little girls, Scoops. Carleigh and Bailey loved their pedicure

The grown-up spa is wonderful too! My pedicure and massage was the best. After my massage was over I asked the lovely massage therapist who worked on me, Shannon if she did children or baby massage. She said she had before. I told her a little about Emma, and she got permission to give Ems a massage. I wasn't sure how she would like it. What do you think?

She LOVEDit! I was so glad she enjoyed something so much. We discovered she really likes the hot tub too!

I guess she realized we were on vacation, because she slept solid as a rock the whole time we were gone. It was good to know she was resting so well. Since we've returned, she and Cora both think it's a great idea to get up around 4 in the morning. We'll have to figure that one out fast.

We all had a truly splendid time on our vacation...

Have a great Sunday!


  1. SOOO cute! I wanna do that with my girls!

    I'm so glad that you had a wonderful time on your vacation!


  3. The massage pictures with Emma are priceless!!!! What fun you all had!

  4. Thank you sooo much for allowing me to massage your precious little angel. I feel truly blessed and privilaged that our paths crossed, if only for a moment.
    Your family is beautiful,

  5. girl! I wish I had known you were in grapevine. we are less than an hour away and my darby would have LOVED to have met Emma. We all would have for that matter. Since I first told Darby Emma' story, she had not missed a day of praying for her and for your sweet family. I cannot read your blog when she is around cause I cry too much, like right now. I am amazed at the maturity and faith you and Kelvin posses. I am always dumbfounded by your blog entries cause I really don't think I am as strong as you both are. I love reading about your family so much and you encourage me all of the time. My heart just hurts and the tears flow, really the uncontrollable sobbing. Darby just turned 10 and talks and asks about Emma all of the time. We love all of you and I am thankful for the peek into your lives each week. But you better never come up this way again without telling us...we will come to you! Jill


Thank you for stopping by. We love hearing from you. Blessings!
