It's Thursday, I think.

It's amazing how fast my reader fills up when I am away from the blogosphere. I'll never catch up, so I am going to stat fresh. If there is something you want me to see/read, let me know and I'll be happy to pop over.

My family and I have spent the last three days with our extended family. Yesterday was my auntie's funeral services and the girls did so well. Izzy was slightly chatty but nothing too loud came out during the service. When we arrived at the cemetery for the graveside, all the girls could talk about were the pretty flowers and how they wanted to pick them. Thankfully, no flowers were picked. Thank you very much for all of the wonderful messages regarding my aunt's passing.

My cousins have a large trampoline at their house and that was the highlight of Izabel's days away from home. She LOVEs to jump! Both Daddy and I were air bound more than once and Izzy was ecstatic. Both girls enjoyed playing with their cousins too, although Izzy had a hard time remembering their names and referred to them as "the boy". Izabel also had her hair french braided for the first time and she really thought that was cool. It looked darling.

*This photo was not meant to be taken with the massive 300mm lens, but it's what I had on at the time. I still think it looks pretty cool!

Emmy stole the hearts of many as she paraded around in silence waiting for the next man to kiss her tiny little hand and smile in awe of her curls. She had a great time with all of the attention.

I was not very good about getting photographs during the last couple of days. I had every intention of taking many too. I have several sets of photos uploading to Flickr from the last week or so and so many more to get up there.

For those of you following about Tucker, things haven't changed too much, explaining the lack of updates. Karen updates when she can. The main focus right now is trying to find a nice meduim between sedation and being awake so that they can start weaning him from the vent. It's been a long and tiresome few weeks in Boston for Tucker and his family. Thoughts and prayers are still very much needed for their Journey.

That's about the extent of an update. The girls and I caught up on some much needed sleep today and Daddy and I are going to try and sneak a date in tmrw night and see Harry Potter.

My 'reader' is so jammed at this point I don't bother to open it at all (which only makes things worse) but methinks REAL life takes precedence over the virtual one.
Hugs and blessings,
