Building a Life Together

Okay, maybe not a life, but some nifty perpetual date calendars at the Home Depot kids' workshop...
Poor Watts was sick and home with Daddy, so this was a girl power construction zone...
That afternoon, we headed to Slidell for a New Year with Old Friends!  Lots of our favorite former LaPlace residents were there.  Together, we have 15 children split among 5 families in this photo.  Two boys were missing from the photo, so we really have 17 kids!  Wow!  Have we been productive!
Stella could not get enough of sweet Brooks...he's a cuddler just like her!

Mom friends...I love this group of ladies.  They have mentored, sharpened, and ministered to me as a mother.  I am so blessed to count them as friends...
In my opinion, God gives you two families: the family you are born into, and the family of your heart.  We found many members of our heart family during our time in LaPlace.  Even though we have been spread from Saudi Arabia, to San Antonio, and lots of places in between, I am so thankful that God allowed us to build our lives and families together, and I treasure the times we are able to reunite and feed our souls together.
