This is the happiest Ellie looked the entire afternoon! I think we were close to the line of child abuse. Oh, what I would do for a darling family picture!
The Coast Guard is referred to as the "Keepers of the Sea." I am so proud that John is a part of such a wonderful organization that serves our country faithfully. What a wonderful time of year to honor so many that have given there lives and continue to give there lives for our freedom.
John and I love our country and are so proud to be Americans. Today it was so cold and cloudy. As I took a minute to look around at all the graves, in the stillness was a kind of reverence that I believe these fallen men and women deserve. It was a privilege to be in Arlington national Cemetery. Ellie loves to see her Dad in uniform. He looks so handsome!
Paige was our little lion! She can do the best roar and made sure to show everyone around her. It didn't take her long to learn how to say trick or treat! She couldn't believe when she said it people gave her candy.
Ellie was a ballerina for Halloween and would wear that outfit everyday if she could. She loves anything pink or princess. She loves to play dress up and changes her outfits to fit her moods which is several times a day! :)
Ellie is now in Primary and enjoying every minute of it. She loves to sing the songs and learn new things. She just gave the prayer for the first time in font of everybody and did such a great job. We love you Ellie!!
Paige loves her Da-ye(Daddy). Whenever she is sick and not feeling good it is her Dad she wants to comfort her. John works nights and sleeps in the morning. Paige knows he is in the bedroom and will go lean on the door and keep saying Da-ye.
She is always so happy. What a beautiful little spirit she has been blessed with. We love you Paige!
