Family Pictures

the kids hate this picture

The five of us,..back from Gulf Shores!
This was mom's first big family trip without daddy.

Abby and Casey

My three girls.
Family pictures will never be the same for any of us.

People ask: "Are we all here?"
"Yes!" some reply
But is ain't so.

We are not all here.
I'm missing one.

I've got things to say, but it took me 86 years to load four photos onto my blog. Therefore,...writing must wait.

Dear Becky,

GREAT pictures...and I guarantee you that will be the girls' favorite picture in years to come! I treasure the pictures of my parents "cuddled up" and lovin' on each other. What a gorgeous family. Tell your momma she looks better than ever!

86 years! That cracks me up. I absolutely LOVE the pictures and I'm SO jealous that you went to the beach. Kody is there now with a couple friends and their family. He's had a very emotional being his first trip to the beach without his Peepaw (Mike's dad). Can't wait to see you for the girl's tournament. You will be there won't you? Maybe this one won't go 'til 6 in the morning. See you soon. Love you guys!

I wrote your name in the sky,
But the wind came
And made it fly.

I wrote your name in the sand,
But a wave came
And away it ran.

God wrote your name on my heart one day,
And nothing, nothing,
Can take it away.

One of my deepest (maybe crazy) desires the past few years has been to go to the beach and write Mark's name in the sand. I am so happy to see your pictures. They are special. I love you, my sister . . .
