Practicing Gratitude 7.28.13

- Essie turns 7. Love this spunky girl.
Celebrating with Daboo and Cappy
Favorite flowers from Daddy

- Watching Bran and Corbin read my post about Yukon. They both needed Kleenex.

- Swimming in the rain with the Schaefers

- SWEET Daboo taking the boys fishing at the lake. This was one of several trips she took them this summer.

- A new snow cone machine. Thanks to Costco, it was cheaper to buy one than rent one.

- A visit from Purdy... might as well be Christmas
Going to see Tim Hawkins. Competing to see who's the funniest.
- Finally... new mulch!
He's excited about this
Almost as much as he is

- Hud and his creativity. About three hours invested setting up a paracord rappelling system from our Magnolia. And it worked!

- Atlee gift of sewing a button back on Bran's shirt for me. Keeping her around.

- Birthday girls 

Thank you, Aunt Kay!

- Summer rhythms - swimming and snowcones

- Uncle Chris and his posse of beauties

Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always. Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles...   1 Chronicles 16:11-12
