Sweet Goodbye

Wednesday, December 30, 2009

Tonight the family came over one more time. We ate dinner, and Blythe, Lydia, and I did a little crafting (to be features MUCH later). Blythe does not love crafts as much as I do...yet, but give us a few more years. The results are the best we all could do with a struggling 7 month old, but that's just part of the experience, and the memory! She loves plastic spoons, and this is how Mom and Dad survive dinners out. I took a little video to remember some of those sweet sounds she makes. I know she will be completely 'new' the next time we see her. This trip she learned to crawl, graced us with the cutest little waves everytime someone picked her up, walked around with her, left the room, looked at her funny, etc. She also made precious sounds, chewed on everything she could grab, and experienced her first snow, AND was a part of all of our first white Christmas. It was so good to have the whole family together this Christmas, and I'll treasure these memories forever.

And there are people who don't believe families are gifts from God. Seems like you certainly know it!
