One of my most favorite things


My family has always been very close...I think that is mostly obvious to other people around us. As life moves on...things change. I am finding this is not always an easy transition. We used to get together almost every Sunday at mom and dad's for lunch and we would laugh our guts out ,play games, eat... eat... and eat again. So if anything new happened or changed it was always easy to keep people "caught up?"
These days it is not so easy. The distance between us has widened, we only see each other during major events for the most part. We are spread all over the state of Maine and its hard to remember what it is you told who last...am I making any sense?
On top of it all my family is HUGE. Huge I may say. MY sister Kelsey just got married. that makes 6 out of 7 married. SEVEN. My twin brother (the last to be married) will be wed January 1st. that makes 7 children, seven children in-laws, and 12 grand children. Add Jess and Sam
(adopted daughter and husband) Mom and Dad and you Have a grand total of..............30 people.
30 people to try and share everything new that is going on in your life with. Its hard. I hate that I cant keep up. If I tried I would be on the phone for almost the entire day...if I kept in touch with everyone. I totally understand that I myself dont get calls from each of them.
I guess we have heaven to look forward to...sigh.

Mom and Dad are planning to move and we seem to be spreading farther and farther apart. Riley knows the kids at church better that her own cousins, Aunties and Uncles. Its sad to me...

Boo hoo. So goes life.

Heres to having baby girls

We Get to play dress up
Do fountain ponies
Read girly books
Make girly noises
Buy pink flats with bows on them
They are our little princess's
I absolutely love having a daughter... I wonder what it would be like to have a boy.

"Too much of a good thing... Is wonderful"

This is what we do

We eat Sand at the beach
We go to Canada
And celebrate graduations
And eat at A&W in Canada

The other day I went for a walk and spotted a run down old building and the front yard of it was chock full of lupines! I love them... Most people dont because they grow wild here. I picked a few for my kitchen table! Can you believe these grow wild in Maine?!
