to the COOLEST
uncool 14 year old I know.
You are ANYTHING but "typical".
You continue to amaze me with your beauty
(within and without)--
you are every parent's dream daughter.
With much love, Rachel...
I'm thankful you're "ours" for just a bit longer...
you're the first of three very "special reasons"
I wish the years would go by more slowly :).
You make it hard to "hold you loosely".
Ephesians 1:16~19a
And a BIG, FAT SMOOCH to Ryan--
the most INCREDIBLE two-year-old on the planet!

They grow up so fast, don't they? I wish it wouldn't zip by.

Congratulations on raising un-cool, cool kids. They're the best!

Happy B-Day! 14 is a great age. Of course, I think every age thus far has been a great age.
That is the best b-day cake I have ever seen. Will you make my cake?

She is a beauty! Thanks to the shout out to baby Ryan. I have to be reminded often of how time passes us by and to slow down to cherish the moments. Did I say cherish. I sent Nicholas' 1st day of school picture this morning to a friend of mine and he replied back "cherish the moment". I know you said I was a softy, but those aren't my words. Kidding aside, life is good. Life is better with God's precious gift of children.

Happy Birthday:)
That is what I call a CAKE!!

Weee-llll...if you have to know the truth, no, this isn't the cake Rachel got. I tried to take a pic of the one I made for her (it was chocochocolate with lavender buttercream icing) but our camera wasn't cooperative. In my mind's eye it was just as pretty, but in reality......not quite!

My Photo Name:


Married to my college sweet-heart :)...three GREAT kids I'm not selling to the circus today...I LOVE to laugh (& smile often) to read & cook, hate to shop (unless the store is very small and doesn't leave me dazed and confused). I'm scared of flying so although I'd like to travel more, I don't.

I've been pleasantly surprised to find life in my 40s to be an amazing time of transformation & discovery--of self, others, creation and the Creator.

Here's a partial explanation for my Blog title. I think it'd be cool if they really existed.

A Pensieve is a stone basin.... [One] can extract his or her own memories and place them in the Pensieve, especially to relieve the mind when it becomes too flooded with information. Anyone can examine the memories in the Pensieve, which also allows viewers to fully immerse themselves in the memories stored within...

A Pensieve first appears in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire...

For the complete explanation, see
