Tiny dancer......

Our tiny dancer greets us each day with a huge smile.  She has a passion for ballet dancing and Ariel. She loves loves dancing around the house tirelessly and singing whatever tune is in her head.  She is precious in every way and we know the fingerprints of God are all over her life.
 She makes me smile and warms my heart.  Love you sweet girl.  Happy Spring!

Paradise.........

We were blessed to be able to spend a week in Sanibel Island, Florida for Spring Break.  Although the weather was unseasonably chilly for March, we enjoyed our time on the beach especially shell hunting.  The Dumpling is now referring to herself as a true mermaid.  The Princess was very brave this year and ventured all over the shoreline.  The Bigs rode bikes all over the Island and enjoyed their new found freedom.  The parents welcomed a change from the everyday routine too :)



It's always better when your brother is helping.

We loved learning about shells at the Sanibel Shell Museum.

I would say that we had a relaxing vacation and a good time was had by all.  We do not take family time for granted.  It was so special to have this time together.
