Beautiful Examples

It's been so long I don't even know where to start, nor do I have a lot of time this morning.

I do want to say that the past 3 weeks I've been in scenic Kanab, Utah. I was there spending time with my beautiful sister and her active 15 month old daughter and her precious new born. It was amazing to see the interaction of my sister and her family and what a wonderful mother she is!

I will have to say that both of my sisters, Jeana and Joni are like Marry Poppins, "Practically perfect in every way". I'm so grateful to have wonderful examples to look up to. Being the oldest it's been a blessing to be able to watch them grow from cute little snots into beautiful mothers! :-) Thanks to both of you for making a positive difference in the world.

A Sunset in the Swamp

Scott and I went out yesterday afternoon to learn a bit more about where we live.. Scott and I visited the museum that my parents and I visited when they were here and the lake.

One of our stops was a small pond close to town. There are a few little gators in this pond so they put a cement plank in the middle of the pond for them to climb onto, well, these cute little turtles have also found it a place of refuge...SO CUTE! (Sorry Joni, but every time I see turtles...I think of you! SLY)

I'm not sure what kind of bird this is. The wildlife out here is SOO much different than what we see out west...duh..I know, but I didn't realize how different it would be... :-)

We watched the sunset fall beneath the waters of Martin Lake. It was so beautiful! Again, I'm used to watching the sun set sink behind a large rocky mt. For the first time we saw the beauty of the sunset behind shallow waters full of amazing trees full of spanish moss draping from branch to branch.
