Missing in Action

Well, missing from blogger world at least. Things have been pretty busy here. We've been getting our house ready to put up for sale. It seems when we think we are getting close, there is more to do. Jason is putting up new fixtures outside today. I didn't realize how bad the old ones looked. We did manage to get quite a bit of furniture moved out to a storage building, so the rooms look larger now.

Most of our plans for the summer consist of getting this house on the market. Casey is going on a mission trip, so I'm happy for her. We won't be taking a big vacation this year. I'm ok with that! My dear friend Lori is coming for a visit in a couple of weeks. I can't wait! We have a lot of catching up to do.

Please keep my friend Sara in your thoughts and prayers. She got new lungs in 08, and is experiencing some rejection right now. She had a major treatment yesterday that completely knocked out her immune system, so I'm hoping she doesn't have too many side effects from that. She's the one I've blogged about before who ran a 1/2 marathon only 8 months after her double lung transplant!!!

Yesterday we went to my SIL's house for her youngest son's 1st birthday party. Her boys are a delight to photograph. She has a 1 year old and a 6 year old. After taking pics yesterday, I realized more than ever how bad I need a new lens for my camera. The more photography you do, the pickier you get I guess. I've been busy part of the day cropping feet out of photos.. haha! When you take pics of a toddler on the floor at a party, you tend to get a lot of feet in the background. Here are some of the pics. I love the one of Jason's sister and her sweet little boy.

Great pictures, Christy, and you look GEORGOUS in those last two!!! You look like you're about 20 years and in perfect health! (Ok, I hate it when people tell me I look so healthy, so maybe I shouldn't have said that???)

Jason's sister looks just like him.

Courtney, I really need to catch up on my blogger friends. That is very close to the top of my to do list. :)

Debbie, It's easy to look young in faraway pictures. haha. When they say things start going downhill after you turn 35, they aren't kidding. My advice to all the young people who read my blog is to stay out of the sun. I know that's what has damaged my skin over the years. I don't go out without 70 sunscreen on now. I'm thankful for every year though! I hope all of us CFers are showing off all our wrinkles 30 years from now. :)
