Sunday Snapshots

Not much to report today. Belly aches for Sam and I meant for more time at home than out and about. We did get in some exploring with Mimi which was great. We managed to each lose something today along the bumpy cobblestome sidewalks and streets... I lost my sunglasses, Lucy lost one shoe, and Sam lost Aquaman! geesh!

At home, we hung out in our backyard reading Charlotte's Web while the goose (aka: lucy) rolled all around and had a truly lovely time just being quiet together.

Here are a few shots from our backyard lounging:

Little Nana, the dress is too cute! Thank you! Bobbi, the two piggies do seem to be becoming her signature... they show her face best and Sam really likes them!
PS- Sam has loved his notes from Jacob, Kate and Travis and wants to say HELLO!!! I will try to get his notes back to his buddies soon. :)

Your kiddos are absolutely beautiful together! What a special thing they will always have - their time together in Guatemala. I love all the pics in the previous posts too. They just make the tears of happiness well up. :-)

Hi Beth, I have been showing off you and your family to all of my friends at work. It gives us all something great to smile about and helps us get through the night. The pictures are beautiful, Sam seems so happy. We miss you guys!!

Hope you are feeling better soon! ICK!!!

I was so excited to see the two ponies agaiN!! I love the B&W of Sam and Lucy. I think it is my fav. yet--until tomorrow:>)

I talked to Barb yesterday, and we were talking about getting together (not this week--scheduling issures). Krista got ALL excited--she thought Sam was coming too. Then, I reminded her he was in Guat. I'll show her the pics later!

Hope you are enjoying the weather.

Good morning guys! Hope you're all feeling better. Different foods and water are bound to cause some irratating belly aches. Hope you're on the rebound. Maybe it was just a sign to stop and slow down. What amazing photos. When is Papa coming down? Have you emailed any of your contacts or are you just enjoying doing your thing? Maybe once you and the kiddos are alone. Think of you a million times a day! Much love. XXTamar

Just hanging out being a family is just about the best thing in the world. A little down down for everyone is just what you needed. SAm will regain his oommpp and be ready to go two fold. Enjoy your time.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the black and white pic of Sam and Lucy! That deserves to be on a wall in your house somewhere!

I hope Sam feels better soon!

I get soooo...excited when I check and see new pics! Bellyaches are no fun but glad you had some nice quiet time...well deserved!

James thinks baby Lucy is "so cute" and giggled when I showed him the movie of her singing. Nate thought it was great that "her was singin twinkle to me," as he put it. They both are LOVING seeing their buddy Sammy in the pictures and want him home for a campout in the living room soon! Chris just smiles when I show him the updates. We all love you and miss you!

Missing you terribly! Loving the pics! Keep them coming! I am so in love with the pigtails-as it seems everyone else is too! Loved the video too! It was so amazing to put the personality with the pictures of beautiful little Luciana. She is so precious!

Can't wait to see you all in person!

Love ya, Laura
