thankful for family time

So happy to have my Mom, Chris and Lyla come visit for the week. Glad that God has everything worked out in HIS perfect timing. Hearing bad news of my friends death on Tuesday brought back alot of breathless emotions~ I was so grateful to have my Mom here so we could mourn this loss together. We are heart broken that we lost another young woman~ but so thankful that I got to spend quality time with both Brie and Crystal before their passing.

We celebrated our lives with wonderful food, wine & birthday cake. We celebrated early for Logan (4) and Max's (11) Birthdays coming up soon. We had white cake with chocolate icing and finished off the night with PRESENTS!!

Pardon the lack of make up ~ we have been laughing and crying all this week

These photos are so sweet. I'm glad you had that time with your friend before she died, and I'm really sorry to hear of her passing.

Great pictures -- you and mom look so wonderful! I wish we could have been there! It looks like so much fun. And I am sure it was great to have mom there, when you heard about Crystal. How devastating, but glad you had each other's support.

It was a fun being with you all. Great food, wine and laughs. Also I was so glad we were together hearing about Crystal. May she rest in peace with Bree.
