Family Visit Part 2

We spent the day with my Aunt Betts and her family. She holds a special place in my heart. Aunt Betts and her sister Christine (my Nana) were very close. Nana is in heaven, and I am very thankful to still have my Aunt Betts. I still miss Nana, after almost 15 yrs.

That night we went to Brian's "See you later" Party. My cousin Kendra's husband Brian is going to Afghanistan. It was great to see my family...I wish it was a welcoming home party. Brian, Kendra, and their kids are in my prayers!!
Here's a few random pics.

Aunt Eleanor and me :) I love her so much! Thanks for really caring about me and my family. You and Uncle Jerry are the best!! :) You guys have to come visit us!! (I know they read my I had to throw that in here.)

On March 1st... It snowed!! Megs and Gracie had never seen real snow! They had seen snow on T.V., but were never given the opportunity to play in it. Megs had been praying a long time that it would snow. We went down to Pop and Nan's that day for a few mins. The snow began sticking so much we had to leave. On the way back to Mom and Dad's, Meghan said, "Mom, God answered my prayers!! He sent snow!!" I think it's amazing the "little miracles" that God gives us. It really strengthened Meghan's faith.

Gracie didn't really like the snow. She thought it was too cold. But I did manage to get a couple of pictures of her.

Here's the tree house my Dad started to build for the girls... They had fun playing in it!! The walls weren't finished due to everyone getting sick, and the weather. They still had tons of fun.

Here's Grandma up in the treehouse with the girls... I was too chicken to climb up the tree... Ok, I'll end here and begin with Part 3 Hope you aren't asleep and have followed the trip this far! :)
