Meet Addison Renee...
One of the reasons I've been a little preoccupied the past few months :)

It is so fun being Nona to this lovely little girl,
she has captured my heart!
There are a lot of guys in our family,
but we ladies are adding to our ranks :)

I also thought I'd share a photo of my daughter Serena, from a recent modeling shoot :)

Yes, I'm a proud mama :)
You can find more of Casey's wonderful photos here.

Thank you to everyone who has written to check on me.
I'm doing well. My parents are stable and have adjusted well
to assisted living. Also, Jordan and his family have moved into their new home,
provided for them by Homes for Our Troops! What a blessing!!

I'd love to get back to blogging and visiting all of you.
I hope to write again soon :)
Thank you again!
