Lucy 180/365

Annie 180/365

Today I am thankful for the small break from the heat. It was substantially cooler for most of the day today, and let me tell you, it was heavenly. It looked like it was going to rain all morning, but it never did. I wish it would have. My flowers would have really appreciated it. The heat from the past few weeks has sucked all of my energy. I swear I am exhausted all of the time and just have no desire to do anything.

Annie has turned into the all time biggest ham. She does this enormous fake grin all of the time with her eyes completely squeezed shut. It is SO cute. I am trying my best to catch it on camera, but it is proving to be quite difficult. The pictures with the spoon are from yesterday, but I couldn't ever catch the full blown cheese grin. She is also becoming quite demanding. She pretty much thinks that someone should be holding her at all times and she is not scared to let us know when we are not doing exactly what she thinks we should be doing. She turns 15 months on the 1st, so I will do a full report on her progress then. We have one month left until Lucy is a 3 year old. How does this happen?!?!

I have another prayer request. Please take a look at this article: This is the cousin of a very dear blog friend and she has gone missing. Sherri and I travelled to VN together to bring home our Lucy and Gracie. They were roommates before we brought them home. I know that this must be the scariest thing, so please pray that this little girl is safely returned home immediately.

Home safely and already miss you guys! Knowing the crazy Annie smile that you are talking about, I can't wait for you to catch it on the camera! Wish I could have kissed the gals goodbye this morning, so guess you will have to give them extra kisses for me. Again, thanks, Justin, for the baseball. That is so cool. Got it ready to go in the mail tomorrow. And also, we don't have to take any flack about spilling formula. At least we were in there trying!!! (I am however, glad that know one saw me make that mess at 1:48) Been a long emotional day--so I'm off to rest. Love and kisses to all, Lee Lee

Loved the pics. Both girls look so happy, even Annie when stuck in the flower pot.

Keep me updated on Sherri and family. They are in my prayers already. Am sick to hear about this.

Water your petunias. Lucy and I watered the hibiscus. Thanks.

How cute is Annie's dress! Been thinking about your friends...and now I'll add another to the list.

Glad Justin is home. The pictures from yesterday with him coming home were PRECIOUS!!!

I heard a song that I have to send to you for your other friends...

I cannot wait to get my hands on those two little dumplings again and give them lots loving. They are so beautiful and I'm really thanking God right now for all of my little "nieces" and "nephews". So sad at times I don't get to see them all grow before my eyes, but I'm so thankful for all the blogs so I can see them daily and make me smile. What a blessing to be a momma to these amazing little ones!

Wow- Kelly- you have really had a rough week with friends and traumas. I'll be praying for sure. CUTE pics! Annie really is too much. Don't talk about Lucy turning 3. I refuse to believe that our little group of kids is going to be 3. Surely they are still babies, right?!?

Beautiful pictures as always. ;) Glad you got a break from the heat. I live in WA State and have just been sick about the little girl missing, my oldest is 11 years old. I have been praying and will continue to do so. I am so sorry to hear that she is the cousin of your friend.
Take Care.

Will pray for this little girl. This is my biggest fear for my boys, I cannot imagine the fear this mother has. Please let us know if there are any updates!
Amazing pics as always!!!

Kelly send some of the cool wave here to Austin! It is so hot that we can't get out and about to enjoy this beautiful city :( Love the pics! Any plans for heading this way?

I am so sorry to hear about both sad stories, and I will continue to pray for your friend and for the safe return of Lindsey.
