Evie’s Gift

Tuesday, September 23, 2008



Aside from the love of my life being five-thousand-two-hundred-and-eighty-four miles away in Ukraine (I did the math), it was a pretty-nearly-perfect-in-every-way-day!  Beautiful crisp,clear autumn day…reminiscent of unforgettable childhood birthdays!


Evie has added yet another specialist to her growing list of doctors.  We met her opthamologist today about a blocked tear duct that she’s had since birth.  She very well might be the first child in history to sleep through an eye exam.  I mean lifting her lids, probing, shining lights, the whole nine-yards.  She was an angel!


My wonderful mother-in-law took me to lunch and my father-in-law gets honorable mention for watching the kids – brave guy!  The afternoon was complete with cake & ice-cream with my precious kiddos, oodles of sticky hugs and kisses and gaudy cards and a dozen gorgeous roses.  Evie LOVED watching her siblings blowing bubbles…got some great belly-laughs out of her!!

Evie had a present for me too.  While I was cleaning up the dinner dishes, she was playing on my kitchen floor.  I turned to see her half-way up the stairs on the landing……uh-oh…trouble’s brewing!  

What a year its been!  Counting my many blessings!!!

  • What a blessed day! I am telling you, friend, your family could be the Hallmark family of the year with all of your precious pictures…just photo shop Chad’s face in & it’s perfect!
    Thank you for sharing and putting a big smile on my face this morning!
    Love to you~ Rebecca
