Alex went to work.

I sequestered myself in the study for an hour. 

Everyone else spent a relaxing morning, until.....

The Saturday morning quiet came to an abrupt end! The door slammed open and I KNEW...."Baachan, I'm HERE!!!"

Arielle and Benny came to visit. He played with Dash, Stacia's rabbit. 

Papa handed him a piece of wood on one of his trips to the woodbox...Benny was THRILLED.  "I'm Papa's big helper."

Oh....and Arielle and Kimber were here too! ::snort:: 

I booked my airplane tickets to CA for the Travis Women of the Chapel retreat. Krista bought that bright light - a happy light. LOL 

Nolan picked up Alex and the two of them went bowling  with a couple of guys from church.

Wayne, the original owner of our home stopped by. He and Michael enjoy visiting. 

I got out some old candlesticks and put the advent away. It's time....or so I've been told. 

When the boys got home we had our family gift exchange. I'll get to those photos "soon." 

Legacy, Time...thoughts from Arielle

Arielle said I could share this photo and her thoughts from her private Facebook account. 

Legacy, time. Precious memories fleeting moments. I'm obsessing
over this picture. That elephant lamp in the back is from Liberia and sat in my 2G's house. I loved staring at it while listening to Gma.

That antique coffee table is from grandma/grandpa G's river house and I loved how it sat in their river room and all the stories it held.

My sweet boy making new wonderful memories with his Papa. Learning and enjoying life and growing. Life is so sweet and precious. I cherish these days and am so thankful they're happening. Thankful for the safety and joy of this moment. And praying for all the military families having to say "see you later" to loved ones this week. Y'all are in our prayers and we thank you for all you do.πŸ™
