We are so blessed to have 2 wonderful, beautiful children. We thank the Lord for His great blessing to us: Samuel Travis and Kara Suzanne!
We sent Samuel to spend the afternoon and then overnight with Trav's parents (Friday into Saturday) and this is how he came home...with his head all scraped up! I like to pretend I'm really mad about it, since I know it made Trav's mom and dad feel so bad that he got hurt at their house. Actually, Samuel absolutely LOVES to go to Ninny and Pappop's house. He asks about them everyday.
We finally got to bring my dad home (to my brother's house) on Friday, June 8. Samuel and Kara were so happy to see their Mammo and Pappy again. We have missed you so much, mom and dad. We love you and can't wait to be with you again as a family. Thank you all for praying. Please keep praying for my mom and dad (my mom especially) for God's strength to be hers as she cares for my dad everyday. It is an overwhelming task.
The auntie for whom Kara is named: AUNT SUZANNE (or Aunt Uzanne, as sam calls her). She is a very dear sister to me, having dated my brother from the time I was 12 years old. We have so much in common, the best of all being that we both know what a MORON my brother is! =) I love you, Andy, you big nerd.
Travis, Andy and my dad taking a stroll around the house. They had to stop and admire Kara along the way.
A few days ago Kara got her first bath. She didn't even cry. The second picture of her looks so much like the one of Samuel that we used on his birth announcements. A lot of people are saying that they look very much alike.
This is Travis' grandfather holding Kara on Memorial Day. He's 90 years old. He actually said he was too nervous to hold her because she was too small, but then after a minute he decided he'd try it! =) We love you Pappy McMinn!
