Family fun weekend...

Wow, this week has flown by...busy at work and busy at home! I know for all of you still waiting for your referrals to come in, time seems to stand still. Please believe me that once you get home with your little one time starts moving at rocket speed and you'll wish it would slow down.

I wanted to post some pics from last weekend, since we had such a nice one. On Saturday night we had my mom, my brother and his family over for a belated birthday celebration (my brother's b-day). Lauren doesn't see her cousins very often because of busy schedules for everyone, so it has taken her a while to really be comfortable with them. She has definitely come around and she had an absolute ball on Saturday and followed Josh around all night. It was so cute. Josh loves to scoop her up and carry her around and she doesn't seem to mind at all, as you can see in this layout...


Here's my brother with Josh and Lauren...


On Sunday, we had dinner at Joe's parents' house for my sister-in-law's birthday. Lauren had fun playing with Grandma and Grandpa and her Aunts and Uncle...she really is coming into her own at this point and opening up quite a bit with our extended family...


We stopped at Starbucks for a snack on Sunday and I snapped these cute pics...

Donna you are right time does seem to stand still and it drives me crazy, but I know all too well how time goes by so fast so I do try to not miss anything. My "baby" is almost 17 and I just dont know where the time has gone and I swear if it kills me I am gonna try to miss nothing of Franceskas life, because it just goes so fast.

Love and blessings, Kristy

ps the pictures of your angel are precious!
