Somebody has been watching his daddy! Henry saw his daddy washing my truck and decided his car needed a scrubbing. Randall ran in the house to get me and my camera. It was priceless.
Randall said Henry just took it upon himself to scrub high and low. He looked just like Randall out there. It was precious. I can't wait to use these photos on his 16th birthday!
Sunday was our last time to wear this cute little Ragsland madras patchwork outfit. I have loved seeing him in it all summer and realized I had no photos of it. I made him pose for several for me. He was a fairly good sport. He looks so big, and he really is. Henry Patton is becoming a little boy overnight.
Summer is almost over and it feels like it just started in a lot of ways. We are so ready for the fun that comes with fall, yet I will miss the simplicity of summer. I just today in the mail had invitations to 3 things in September....bring on the booked calendar. That is one thing I have a real love-hate relationship with when it comes to fall. Oh well, being busy keeps me out of trouble, I reckon! So thankful for a changing season though. I love how God does that for us. It is always in perfect timing.
We are Abby & Julie - born eight years apart to parents who taught us to love each other, respect each other, pray with each other and laugh with each other. This is our journey together as sisters and as friends.
I am Abby's big sister and quite chatty from what I hear. Being optimistic through life's journey is my humble pursuit. Talking is my favorite activity. Being a preacher's wife has been my most unexpected blessing. Being the mother of the Fab Four fills my life with endless warm fuzzies. My most favorite things are scrapbooking with my sister and mother, nights out with the girls, happy hour at Sonic, hugs from my kiddos, being an aunt to my handsome nephew, date nights with my hubby,vacationing with my family, bargain shopping with my sister, laying out at the pool, dinner dates with my best friend and laying on the couch with my blue blanket all to myself. Encouragement, prayer and service are my spiritual gifts. Sharing life's journey with my sister fills me with great pride and laughter.
I am Julie's little sister and quite funny from what I hear. Being joyful through life's journey is my humble pursuit. Laughing is my favorite activity. I have trouble making big decisions. I went to three colleges before receiving a degree in communications. One of the best decisions I have made was marrying my handsome husband. Being a mother to our precious baby boy thrills my soul . I am an athlete. I completed a marathon for charity. Being an aunt to the Fab Four is one of my most treasured roles. Having a loving family makes me most grateful. My favorite things are scrapbooking, entertaining in my home, going to Sonic at happy hour,riding four wheelers with my hubby, shopping red dot sales with my sister, laughing with my best friend, traveling with my hubby, laying out and decorating my home for each season. Hospitality, service and encouragement are my spiritual gifts. Sharing life's journey with my sister brings me great comfort and happiness.
A sister is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark.
She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Somedays she's the reason you wish you were an only child.
