Lil Me

I look at this smiling little face, it's really me.  So young, so innocent.  Hard to believe it was me.  I've always liked this picture of me when I was little.  I think we were on vacation with my Papa and Mema.  Somewhere in Florida, I remember jumping waves with my Papa, everytime a wave would come he would turn a flip over it.  Maybe that's why I still love the waves today.

Old family picture

This picture will always be one of my favorites, one thing I see is how much the three of us loved Lance.  He was always the one we all three wanted to spoil.  He was so special to all of us, and still is today.  The picture was just us, I remember them telling us all to smile for a picture, and all at once Lance ended up in our arms.  I sure love my family.  Maybe I'm missing them some.

The Lady

This is one of my favorite pictures I'd taken on a magical trip to New York years ago.  This city was almost one of make believe.  I've never seen anything so big. 

THE NEW COLOSSUS Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame, With conquering limbs astride from land to land; Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. "Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless,tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"   Emma Lazarus

Welcome kiss from Big Brother

I just love this picture, it's one of my favorites now, I put this in my other journal.  Eli is such a loving big brother, I wonder if I was this way when Sherry was born, I actually still remember my mom bringing her home from the hospital and was very happy to see her.  Eli was a part of the whole birth process from start to finish.  What a blessed child to be welcomed into such a loving family.
