I had just completed a rather long entry, with many, many pictures included, and my lovely child snuck behind a chair in my office and flipped the switch on the surge protector.  Thus, my entry, and the pictures that took almost and hour to upload, need to be redone.

I have a feeling that the joy and ease and peace I felt an hour ago in composing my thoughts and sharing the photos from the day will not be as easily detected this time around. 

But!  I do have a big thank you to share for all the kind comments and prayers for this little miracle we have announced.  Chad and I have been waiting patiently (or impatiently on my part!) for our next miracle to arrive, and we are so grateful and thankful for this gift of life that God has blessed our family with.  Thank you in advance for your continued prayers…

And don’t forget to leave a comment for What Silly Things You Do For Your Child contest.  The comments left so far have been great!  I get a kick out of reading about ways we pamper or kids and make them laugh!

Now, I wanted to post about 45 pictures on here, but that is just to much, so I am going to post a few and then if you want more, just click on my Me and Mine link, either here or just to the left in the margin.

And if you enjoy something sweet, like I really do, please stop by and visit this site The Cupcakery, and oogle this womans’ amazing cupcake cakes.  I adore them all! 

OK, so please enjoy the pictures.  I had a wonderful time outside enjoying the sunshine and warm breezes today.  I pray there will me more to come!

Well… I must admit, I love editing pictures of my kids.  I am honestly trying to expand my horizons… and take other pictures…


I pray you all had a blessed weekend!
