But there's always new memories made like listening and watching the 3 of them, Justin, Keturah, and Abishai puttering around the house talking to one another, throwing balls around, chasing each other up and down the hallway, etc. I have missed that. There were fights, too, of course, but seeing Abishai's eyes light up when Sissy or Brother come into his room to pick him up out of his crib from naptime is all worth it. They love his cuteness and will spend time with him and his toys, sometimes enjoying his toys too much! Lol!
So, here's a couple of pictures from today, and a few from yesteryear.
|The kids WANTED to go outside and skate! Sweet! They were a little hyper today, so out we went. I just wish I could keep little man away from the middle of roads. He wants to pretend he's a car or something. So, he needs constant watching.|
|Look! Girl toys! We got some of Keturah's toys out today. And we are missing her current Barbies. Hm,...|
|Abishai LOVES the big vacuum, so I'm glad we found out toy one!|
|Sissy helping little buba.|
|My little crafty girl. Just like me.|
Ok, ready? Here's a trip down memory lane 17-18 years ago (really? 18 years?)
|This is the best! When I said, "Look at this! It's Grandpa! And Grandma Howell!" Keturah said, "Grandpa looks so young!" Bwahahahaha! Yes, he does, but so does everyone else. We just passed down the shirt Jared is wearing to Benaiah. Crazy!|
|Our CIY group in 1998. Yes, me with bangs. (I don't know why there is a white tag in the middle).|
|My first bulletin from ICCC. It was HUGE!|
|Aw, so young!|
|Yup, young! They had moved the Busbys out to Massachusetts and then they let me put my stuff on the semi for me to go to college. Summer of 1999.|
|I was just talking about our trip to Kings' Island when we were dating! And now I await Jared and Benaiah back from the same place.|
|Yes, Chad, Matt, Jared, and Christi (Meeks) McEwen!|
|Me! Wow, skinny, in my dorm room!|
