Friends, friends, and more friends! :)

During Roundhouse I took a few hours to go see some of the best girls in the world: My Reynoldds! I'm sooo blessed to have them in my life! Super good to get to see them and catch up, the drive was gorgeous, the food great, but wow, the hugs were the BEST part! :) And the special phone call I got, too! Missed my SC Daddy a lot! Glad to have Mark Reynolds in my life. He's one of the very best preachers, dads, husbands, friends ever! And he's got a GORGEOUS family!!!
My Sweet "Baby Carratts!" It felt soooooooooooooooo good! Sooooooo normal to have them in our home!
My boys! Spent a weekend with my Duluth family... wow. That was a HUGE blessing!! I love where I live now, my congregations, my friends, my family, my kiddos... but there is still something super sweet about going home for a visit...
CALEB! :D He's getting sooo big and can talk so well now... love this dear little guy!! Praying for this wonderful family as they start out on a new and totally awesome journey. So glad for the godly family that they are, the loving, caring, fun way that they live, that they put God first in their lives. What a blessing to me to know this family. They are some of my very best friends!!
And after coming HOME!! (Suppppppppppppppppppppppppppppper happy to see my kiddos again!) I had my girls from Australia here for a few days, Ashlee and Rosie! They are heaps of fun and wonderful friends. I was so blessed to be able to spend time with them again and also share them with my Missouri family. My family here took them in and made them like family in just minutes. THAT IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE Missouri!!!
My dear sister and my sweet MM... What a great day this was! :)
Little Fairy and our Lynn! Friends are best if you have them in all ages, from all over the world, and can laugh together! We had lots of fun driving around Kansas City, trying new things, playing games and hanging out at home, playing with my kiddos... just learning, loving, and enjoying the simple things!!

This little darling is just a princess! I love her soooo much! It is fun to be at home and be someone she knows. All the sweethearts at Chipman make my life very full and happy because they are just extremely loving. It is a joy to be around them all and also a great reminder that we are being looked to as examples and that we need to be living in a way that does not let God, or our little ones, down. Thank you 1000 times over to all of you who are such GODLY examples in my own life. Love, prayers, and heaps of hugs!
