Savoring

First of all, I want to thank all of you for your prayers and well wishes for Smiley and the rest of us.  She goes back to her doctor on Thursday so he can check her eyes out.  She did fabulously the day of the surgery ~ quite tired, but after what her little body went through I expected that.  By Thursday afternoon, she was coming around to her old, feisty self (you'll probably notice in all of the pictures of Smiley, her eyes look red in the corners ~ side effect of surgery and I assure you they were much worse and have gotten better).


This past weekend, my in-laws came for a visit.  Between Friday night and Sunday evening we saw 1 MLB game, 1 NFL preseason game,  and 2 softball games that Sassy played in.  Not to mention a day of shopping for the girls and golfing for the boys, late birthday celebrating (I made myself this cake ~ so yummy!).  Needless to say, it was a jam packed, fun, memory making weekend.



Sassy and Action were moving in to blow out my candles =)

And now...

My kids don't go back to school until next Tuesday, so we have one more week of summer to savor.  And savoring we will be.  Lazy mornings, friends all afternoon, and nothing scheduled..... just enjoying the moments as they come. And trying to keep Smiley from obsessing about the swimming pool...... no water in her eyes until the end of the week.  Wish me luck, she actually put her swimming suit on over her pajamas the other morning, ready to go swimming!

All those sports sound just like what I do around here! I can't believe the difference in Smiley's eyes! What a doll :)

I'm not joking when I say that you guys are the most photogenic family I know. Can you guys take a bad picture? LOL. They're all so good!

I'm glad she's doing better after her procedure too!
