What a Gift!


Today I received an email with a wonderful surprise. I had been busy with paperwork and was intentionally avoiding email and internet so that I could get my work done. Well my girls told me that Nancy (our facilitator) had sent an email and that I HAD TO LOOK!!! What should I find but not one but three new pictures of my beautiful little sweetie. It was totally unexpected and it totally made my day. Just to be able to see her precious little face is so amazing.



I know I'm a proud mama, but seriously, is that just melt-your-heart cute or what?



I can't describe the feeling when I first saw these photos. I'm not usually a crier, but I have been so emotional lately, I just can't help myself. I can't wait to scoop her up. This gift of current photos of Aly is so wonderful!

Of course you are one proud mama... you should be! :)

Such a beautiful little girl, and with a sense of humour too, by the looks of her.

When will you go get her (OK, jumping to conclusions here, but it would be great if it wasn't too far down the line...)?

What a gift these pictures are! She is absolutely adorable!!! ....can't wait to see pictures of her scooped up in your arms!


....totally random question for you. Did your husband do the editing for a Jana Alayra video?? We missed church today so put in an "ancient" ;) videotape of Jana Alayra and as the credits rolled I saw a name I thought looked familiar ...and told my husband...wait, I think this is the husband from "The Missing Swerd" blog I have popped in on many times... when I popped over to your blog I giggled when I saw that indeed his name is Brian...... so I am thinking these two are one in the same!!!??? :)

Cheri,
Yes, my husband Brian did edit that video for Jana. If you look carefully at the guitar player, that would be him as well. He played in her band for years. We are obviously HUGE Jana fans and can't wait til Aly gets to "Jump, Jump, Jump into the Light, Light, Light"!
