We are on a journey, sojourners on this earth. Let us share with you the highs and lows of our lives. Heaven is a sweeter place now that we have two beautiful granddaughters waiting there for us.

It's hard to believe that I arrived here in Texas 3 weeks ago today! The time has been so full but so rewarding. It's been amazing to spend the time with our three Texas sweethearts and watch the sisters interact. Caily and Lexi can be best friends or worst enemies, depending on the day.
 But they are so gentle with their baby sister and want to hold her and include her in their activities.
 They love taking turns holding her and are willing to sit patiently while they do.
 Bria has grown so much in these short two weeks since she made her appearance. Although in some ways she looks like Darin we have decided that she resembles Jody in her baby pictures.
She is such a good baby, mostly just eats and sleeps.
 She sleeps well in her bed but prefers a warm body!!
 When she cries they get a bit concerned and are quick to grab her soother aka pacificier(depending on whether you are Canadian or American the name changes)
 ....Lexi wants to kiss it all better!
 This morning we went for one last swim and it was so sweet to see Caily at the side of the pool softly rub Bria's head the way she likes hers rubbed.
So incredibly sweet...
Three beautiful sisters.

THe fun thing about this is the "newness" of it all hopefully won't wear off! Bria will be one very loved baby girl!!!! Sweet pictures, sweet memories & times I'm sure you've had with all three! What a blessing! Have safe trip home! See you next time!

Great pictures. I love that the girls could go and create their very own animal with you.
