a week of joy!

time to wake up my snoozing blog....& time to visit some blog friends! we had a fabulous week of family time...
it was sad to see Baby Girl (& Hedge) leave at the beginning of it, but our weekend with her was fantastic!...
D.'s parents arrived the very next day with an extra hound in tow...Kolbe, canine brother of Ms. Maggie...he is so sweet & timid.Phil & L. did there hound-best to make the little guy at home & everyone got along famously!...
D.'s momma came bearing the makings of PA comfort foods that D. loves so well & we had some wonderful time in the kitchen ~ all day tuesday in fact ~ preparing a great meal from scratch. sorry to have missed the what's cooking wednesday post this week, but we were indeed cooking! (next week, i promise a recipe...)...
boyworld was on fall vacation this week ~ one of the benefits of starting the school year a bit earlier in the summer! they had time for some fun on the water & with their grandparents before settling into their second quarter of the school year (monday...groan!)...
our weather was unbelievably gorgeous all week long...even offering the promise of a rainbow...
Big Bro's Godfather made it safely wednesday after some airport delays...it was such a joy to catch up. & Big Bro looked so devastatingly handsome, it brought tears to his momma's eyes. wednesday night, Big Bro's Confirmation Mass was truly beautiful...
(Big Bro, our Bishop & Little Man)
my dear son...may your journey through life be one filled with many blessings!!

for those of you who could not be with us, you were missed!

Is that a real Hedgehog?!?!?! Too cool! Fun blog, and well written. I'll stop in again to catch up!

Hey you, wonderful to see your family is full of good times and spirituality. Makes me remember my own communion and confirmation. I just read about a NC house-fire on the beach and I immediately went to your site. Praying that you're all safe and sound.

That possum is a the cutest creature!

Wow! I like the pictures of the rainbows. Very beautiful. The hedgehog is maybe the most adorable thing - ever. Looks like everything was wonderfully happy. You must be so proud. :)
