With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Life Overflowing

Life Overflowing

The days have been so busy I'm not sure where to begin.
Recapping some of the recent happenings...


A few days after Chloe's birth, Caleb celebrated his 4th birthday. He was most happy all day and each thing he said seemed to come out in song.
Amid everything else, we had the roof replaced. It was a bit unnerving to have the house draped in dark plastic while workers tore off the old roof making a racket for those inside, but now we have a roof that should last longer than we do.

There was an unexpected return to the hospital for Jamie but baby Chloe was allowed to be there too. I gave her her first bath on the tiny counter in the bathroom while Pop-Pop snapped a few pics with Jamie's camera phone.
This little dear didn't give out a peep as I jostled and ruffled her trying to keep her warm in a less than ideal space. I couldn't refrain from kissing those soft baby cheeks.

Jamie's hospital stay brought Jill, Brad and kids down to lend a hand and give opportunity for Cousin~time.

Some more lovin' and a primrose and hyacinth announcing spring is on the way.

We watched Keri and Noah at Salao Soccer.

Jamie is home now and feeling much better. So good, that we all met at the playground to enjoy the warm sunshine (even thought the air was still nippy). Jill, Brad and kids will be heading back to NY in the morning.
