Saint Patrick's Day Parade

In Sedona, we celebrated our St. Patty's Day parade early. Samantha (far left), and her friends Kendall and Savannah, marched in the parade with the mini's from Horse Mesa. The mini's looked adorable! Thank you Woellmer's for helping the girls put this all together.
Henry and his friend Mary "doubled up" in hopes of getting more candy! Frank got to ride in the fire truck! (I don't know why this is underlining, but I can't seem to fix it.) All in all it was a wonderful day had by all.

October of 2009, Will and I took a trip to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. It was sooo beautiful! I highly recommend it -- much different than the South Rim. Anyway, as much as I would like to take trips like this all the time, I can't.

One of the things I've gotten in touch with lately is the beauty in everyday life. The beauty right in front of my eyes. The laughter of a family when something funny happens. The surprise on our kitty's eyes when he does something silly. The contentment on someone's face when they are engrossed in a project. The feel of my childrens' skin when they hug me. The way my heart feels when Will smiles. When my life becomes less busy, as it has these past 4 years, all I have is time. What a wonderful gift to experience my unique life within.
