Not as child like as I thought

I sent Shannie out today with a box of chalk to color our front sidewalk with that awesome child art this Grammy  loves. 

And here's the usual art I expect to enjoy. 

 So imagine my horror when I came across this!

As I’m racking my brain on how I'm going to ask her...


She comes up to me and says... 
“Oh that’s something that didn’t work out…I was trying to trace my shadow and I was able do my feet but when I bent over to do my body it didn’t come out right”.

Whoosh! As the palm of my hand smacks my forehead... 
Oh course it’s you shadow!

I know... so my mind is not as child like as I thought.
But thank you Jesus hers is!

Because he was born

Today is Richard Birthday!  :D
And this day has become so precious to me.
I love celebrating that Richard was born, even though he now lives in heaven.
Because he was born I knew love that 
most people only dream of.
And that is why I will always celebrate my beloved.

So Richard my love…I know you’re having a wonderful Birthday …so I don’t even have to wish you that.
But I wanted to tell you...
I’m so glad you were born...I’m glad you were mine.
And before we see each other again,
I have some great adventures I need to go on 
with the Lord.
So keep cheering me on, because I know you’re more alive than ever!
And someday we will celebrate this day together 
once again.

Happy, Happy Birthday!
Love Lightning,

Who's eating that!

 Mr. Waylon is!

 And he’s not sharing

Because Mr. Waylon is 1 today!

Happy Birthday to my handsome Waylon….the Prince of my kingdom!
The first amazing year of your life has been such a joy and a comfort to your Grammy.
God knew I was going to need you.  The day I found out you were coming into this world was the
day I had to say my finale goodbye to your Poppy this side of heaven. I know he is joyfully watching you
grow….our little mighty man of God in the making!

Love your Drammy
