When I think of white I think of peace, maybe because my favorite white, is snow-so peaceful. I always feel very calm when I see white. I know it is hard for you to believe that someone like me who loves color would like -white. This week I am praying for peace and I have faith that it is just around the corner ......

Lets go on vacation is a brain child of mommyholly. I can't wait to see where everyone goes.... But for me - I dream of Destin...The sound of waves.....
For the last 2 years my family all 16 -20 of us have gone to Destin, Florida for a week of togetherness, Laying in the sun, playing in the sand, riding bicylces, taking early morning walks on the beach, eating the greatest food around - cooked by us, and watching the waves hit the shore on the prettiest beach in the world! This year we do not get to go with the coming of baby ya-ya and a wedding to plan we are not making our annual trip. So today I am thinking of sitting on that beach listening to the waves coming in while reading a great book. Hope you enjoy and I HIGHLY recommend the trip to anyone.

Whew...what a weekend! Our family welcomed home Wyatt from Afghanistan this weekend. He got back to the states 2 weeks ago-but back to Big A this weekend. We ALL got together to welcome him back to Texas. It was a great weekend of visiting, watching videos and looking at pictures and of course Eating.
Each year my nephew Will and friends put on a real life-Cowboy cookoff. I have never seen so much grillin and meat in one place in my life! We had goat, brisket, venison and of course the roasted pig. These young men and a few older ones do know how to cook. It is just how I picture being on a wagon train and eating on the chuck wagon in the old West. The funny thing is none of these guys are cowboys in real life. They are lawyers, graduate students, Realtors and so forth. It is a fun escape for these guys and they have one thing in common-they love to grill. Its great eating, visiting and listening to good ole Texas music and Country living.

There are many dresses in a girls life -one must have a dress for every special occasion- baby dedication,first day of school,Ballet recital, Easter dress ,Prom dress,sorority dresses and the list goes on. But THE most important dress is THE Wedding Dress. I spent the last 2 days on a search for THE dress. As you know my oldest niece Sarah is getting married in October. So off the girls in our family went to find THE dress.Being the sure minded and know what I want girl Sarah had made a design board of dresses she liked and wanted to see in person and try on. There was one that really caught her fancy and wanted to find it most of all. We looked the first day and felt like we were getting no where fast. Feeling a little down the second day off we went saying little prayers all the way, to find a store named -LuLu's.I think from the first moment of walking in the door we all felt at home, could be because it was in a wonderful old cottage in down town Dallas(of all places).Once again we started the search. No lace, No organza, No sparkles, No sleeves, No poofs - all she wanted was a simply wonderful, beautiful dress that made her feel like a gorgeous Bride.The second dress she tried on was a dress that looked very familiar to her but she was not sure. We could hear her excitement as she got into her dress and as she walked out -I knew this was THE dress -and yes it was on her design board and was her favorite.Sarah had found THE dress of her dreams. WE ALL got goose bumps and yes a few tears came to the baby blues. I had seen this little girl in a lot of dresses in her life but NEVER this beautiful of one. I was a proud Aunt, I could not look at sister Brenda because I knew we would loose it. We all just kinda soaked it in a while and then we squealed because Sarah had found THE dress to marry the love of her life.The ladies of the store did the cutest thing as we were getting ready to leave -they played the Wedding march and blew bubbles all over her- smiles were all around and I do believe I had never seen Sarah look so happy and a little relieved...Dreaming of the day in October when she gets to walk down the Aisle in her simply wonderful dress and marry her Major Joe. You will just have to wait till then to see her in THE dress.

I have been doing a little sewing for the baby. I covered the bassinett and repainted it. Josh slept in this basinett when he was a baby - and now his baby will use it. I bought it at a second hand store in Germany where Josh was born. I just love it and the memories that go with it. May it cradle our baby with sweet dreams. I have made several flannel blankets ( I guess I think it might get cold) and of course some burp cloths. I have had a great time sewing and thinking about the little one coming to our family. I got to feel it kicking inside Erica last weekend - what joy this Grandma felt.
