company

before you read about my fam...please, go and pray for this fam who has been sent home from the hospital with their 2 year old daughter, tuesday, to die with stage 4 cancer. i am aching over this...please, i beg you, pray for their peace and strength...

_____________________________________

company {or paige use to call them customers} is such a wonderful thing. we love having people in and around us. we're a very loud house with a lot going on, so there aren't many brave peeps who brave our house, but the "U" fam love us...and we love them! and that always means pizza...yummy!!

{this picture is in honor of my paige who says, "my mom will take pictures of anything. she takes pics of food we eat all the time"


karen is my fab friend...we have really grown in so many ways together over the last 12 years since we met. karen is the best person in the world to rely on for prayer or support or to listen. she can cry a waterfall just thinking about how much someone else is hurting. she's been and will continue to be sucha gift from god. {but she hates her pics, so look at those great hands....her 2 year old painted her nails!}

alex is the big girlie...17...and she's gorgeous and a god-centered teen who i just adore. but she's normal, so i did get the standard "back of the head" shot.

the kids play and play and play. ok, brooke chases nicolaus and tries to tackle him and nicolaus acts like a gentlemen and doesn't tackle her back. poor nicolaus spent a lot of time hiding in the bathroom from brooke.

the little girlie pies were making many, many joyfil noises...loud, joyful noises.

and i was able to nicolas a donut at 9pm! which in turn, caused a domion affect and all the kids had to have one...stinking kids always find out when i'm being sneaky!

jk and molly just love each other...they are like the bestest friends. when they are together, i think i see butterflies and rainbows! they hold hands and dance...

...and the cuteness factor is out of this world!!!
it's never too early to get a good friend.

"A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity" proverbs 17:17
