The Friday Family

You know what’s cute about the Friday family?


Alicia has been on the top of my best-buddy list for a couple of decades now.  She married my old friend, Nick, and then along came the scrumptious Reese.

My heart is so full when I consider the wonderful lives that my loved ones have created for themselves.  We’ve both come a long way, Lil’ Aleelee.

Can’t wait to find out what’s next.  Be still, my womanly baby-creating parts…  The sweetness!!

Want more Fridays? (who doesn’t??)

The Kruger Family

Hello, most wonderful Kruger family.  Thanks for the mega-cuteness that you injected into my morning!

I just love spending time with new little families, and Danielle, Noah, and Nathan fit the bill quite nicely.


Danielle and Noah are now parents of a ONE-YEAR-OLD.  Happy birthday, sweet Nathan!

Bubble boy!  Swoon.

Nathan is a man of many faces…and I loved each and every one of them.

Sooooo close!

Oh Danielle and Noah, you’re flat-out adorable.  So there.

Handsome man!

What a perfect family.  Keep enjoying each other!

The Rock Slinger and his Greatest Hit

For many, many Wednesday nights now, Parker and Bailey have been rehearsing for their church choir musical, The Rock Slinger and his Greatest Hit.  (the story of David and Goliath, get it? huh?)   I have to admit, I never quite know what to expect from Parker or Bailey when they hit the stage.  The Christmas program last year was certainly memorable.  And for months now, all Parker can talk about is wanting to be a Michael Jackson performer.  He is convinced that my brother’s upcoming wedding will be the perfect opportunity for him to make his debut MJ performance.  I fully expected there to be one moonwalking sentry soldier up on stage last night, but P kept his entire performance rather mellow.  Bailey, meanwhile, is completely fickle about her desire to entertain.  When she wants your attention, by golly, you’ll know it. At other times, however, she will play shy-kid to the extreme.  But no matter what, I’m afraid that Bailey just being Bailey is going to be entertaining, whether she likes it or not.

The little lamb trio (Bailey in the middle) opened the show last night with two sweet songs.  Throughout rehearsals, they have sounded perfectly angelic. However, this was the first time a microphone was thrown into the mix…

(please excuse the jiggly videos.  I’m a full-body giggler, even though, clearly, “it’s not funny!”)

I was incredibly proud of both of my unique and awesome kids.  Thanks for always keeping me on the edge of my seat, P and B.
