Sadie Jane

Eight Months Old
Jenni prayed for a "Mommy's Girl" and her prayers were answered. This little doll is happiest when she is in her mother's arms. I just love her smiling eyes; they remind me so much of Jenni's.

When Warners Come for a Visit...

We all want to be there!  Mark's sister, Kim, blessed her baby on Sunday, so Jenni and family flew in from Seattle. It's such a special occasion when they are here! Like a holiday that happens twice a year!

It gave us the chance to "eat up" our sweet Sadie.

And for the cousins to become reacquainted.
After dinner on the Sabbath, we gathered up as many strollers and other carrier contraptions as we could find and went for a walk through the neighborhood. What a sight! We made quite the parade, I do believe! Witnessing my children laughing and loving is one of the greatest joys of motherhood.
That's what family memories are made of.

"Despite all new inventions and modern designs, 
fads and fetishes, 
no one has yet invented, or will ever invent, 
a satisfying substitute 
for one's own family."
