This visit with some of our family has continued to tie the heartstrings of cousins, aunties, uncles, grandmas and grandpas.....

Emily and Kaitlin

Katie and Kyle

At the Delaware River

Evan and Kyle, who couldn't stop climbing and jumping on and banging into his big cousin!

Love and trust between Lindsay and her baby brother...

Evan and Sarah today before "cousins" left - He is an adored person in our household.

Auntie Paula and her fans...

Heartstrings were also tied between loving friends - Becky and I surprised Paula with some artwork from one of her favorite artists, Alice in Paris.

Last night, Becky, Paula and I went for one last hurrah at Cracker Barrel. We talked, laughed, shared our hearts and took pictures of each other taking pictures!

I am so thankful for my dear friends!

The family left today, it is hard for them and us! Pray for their safe trip home and for an easy transition back into life at home! Check out Miss Paula's blog, to see what her husband, my brother has been up to while they were here visiting!

We miss you all already!

    Love to all, Auntie Paula, Miss Paula or whatever NICE thing you want to call me!!
