*Turquoise* and Jordan Update :)

My beautiful turquoise necklace was a Christmas gift from my nephew and his wife.
He cut and smoothed the stones, and she made the necklace.
They gave one to each of my girls too.

I keep telling them that they should open an etsy shop. I know it would do well.

I shared these two a while back. They made them for my mom and sister-in-law :)

Aren't they beautiful?
I also thought I'd share a new photo of Jordan. He's driving!!!

He posted this on his Facebook page. He took his little boy to the beach :)

Isn't that wonderful? :)
He's continuing to improve. The antibiotic beads I told you about back 
in November have helped. We're all so proud of him. 

Homeschool is back in session around here, and my twins are in a play next week,
so I've been running around more than usual. Guess what they're playing?
Twins, lol. I think they might be typecast :)

I'm having a giveaway soon, so check back next week.

Joining Good Life Wednesday at A Beach Cottage.
