My Heart is 2 Sizes Bigger

What a wonderful week I enjoyed last week! I usually write and post on my blog in the early mornings and that time was reallocated. Rosebud is the world’s cutest alarm clock and was here for a full week. I had the joy of being the one to peek in on her first thing (like 5 am!) as she giggled and cooed until the crescendo to happy shrieks could wake up the household if you don’t get her. When you go to pick her up, the reward is a smile so big it’s like the sun coming out. Did I mention I’m smitten with this little girl?
We played…
We cooked….
We shopped…And decorated the house for Christmas…
Yesterday was precious LouLou’s memorial service and it was truly a celebration of her life. I was reminded that I not only LOVE my family, but I really LIKE them and enjoy being with them. LouLou’s sweet church (she was older than the church itself!) prepared an amazing luncheon for about 50 of the family members (a small representation) It was so special. The church was resplendent with garlands and twinkly lights and gold and green Christmas decorations that were breathtaking. I felt LouLou’s smile as we talked about her. Our final stop was at Traveler’s Rest, the country cemetery that holds amazing history lessons and was actually a comforting place to be on a stunningly beautiful afternoon.

I’ve more to tell but I have about 800 emails to sift through. : ) Joy to you as we enter this special season.

The Angels are all singing!

I know how much joy your wonderful LouLou brought you and to all the people whose lives she touched.

You are in my prayers.

I'm so glad that LouLou waited for her Rosebud to enter this world before she went home to Heaven.

I've missed you but it looks like my computer is back and running again so hopefully I'll be able to catch up.

Take care my very special friend!

I don't usually think babies are cute but that is one good looking baby. Wow.

Lovely photos of one cute little girl! No wonder you were peeking in on her at 5 in the morning!

Looks like you're still dancing....

You remind me so much of me when my first grand-girl was born. You can't get enough of that little baby and it looks like she can't get enough of you either. I love the bond I see you developing with her. And let me just say that she is the cutest little Rosebud I have ever seen. Have I said that before? :)
