Made with the Fancy Pants "True Friend" Collection
As you know, if you have been a reader, I come from a large family. I'm the baby of seven. We are a very close family, and all started out in Nebraska, but two of sisters and their families have lived away from here for years now.. but we still see them often. This sister (Sharon) in Florida and my other sister (Donna) in Arizona. I still have a sister and two brothers here in Nebraska. One brother who has passed. My sister Sharon and her husband Howard started out in Nebraska so both their families are from Nebraska. Lots of Florida AND Nebraska family from both sides in these photos. We love them all! Although it was a sad time, being together made it so much better. I know Howard was smiling down on all the craziness and loving seeing all of us together.
Getting to hold and love on little ones I hadn't even met in person yet... was amazing! You know people can say all they want about Facebook, and it's drama, ect ect... but I have to say for me it's been an amazing way to keep up with family and friends.. and I wouldnt trade that for anything. Even though I had never met the little ones in these photos in person, I felt like I knew them. I've seen so many photos of them, and read so many posts their mommmas have made about them. I knew what their voices sound like from videos, watched for news about how their first day at preschool went , or even when they are running a fever. So Facebook CAN BE a GOOD thing :)
Today I just watched a video of baby Aria (top right photo) taking her first steps by self. Yay Aria!
And this Nebraska girl was enjoying every minute of it !
The best part of the time there was spending time with my sis. Her mind was kept busy while we were all there and there was so much going on but it's going to be hard now. I know her heart is so full of sadness and how much she will miss her love of 52 years. Please keep her in your prayers if you would. Thank you
I have more projects and photos to share ...but I'll do a post every few days to break it up.
Thanks for coming by.
