Family Fun

Hello, friends:}

I have been wanting to share my visit with my older brother, Leander, and his wife, Jamie, for weeks--I just didn't have time to write it up! I met with them the first week of March in Orlando. I love visiting family!! Leander was in town for a meeting, and Jamie was enjoying the sun:} Here is a pic of us walking around International Drive....even that was fun!
I enjoy visiting with family because we share little gifts and the such. This time, their little girl Kadence (who turned 4 March 29) created me this super cute magnet. LOOOOVE her coloring and how beautiful her flowers look! I also love how she writes--so smart and crafty! She takes after me:} 
A few days after meeting Leo and Jamie, I got a package in the mail with this sweet picture colored and drawn by my nephew, Jackson. He is sooooo smart! Love how he spelled my name correctly! It was super long, so he wrapped it around the right side of the paper:} He even wrote his name on the bottom! So clever!! 
I love my family--and I miss my little nieces and nephews! Thanks for letting me share my precious pictures with you. And thanks for leaving some love and birthday wishes for my niece, Kadence. I will make sure Leo or Jamie read them to her!! One last pic--I made Kadence a SpongeBob cape--it took me 3 1/2 hours to make! I fabric pieced that face together--I can't get away from "paper piecing"!!! LOVE it! 
 Here is what it looks like on a kid.
**NOTE:: I just got off the phone with my brother, and he said that when Kadence went to bed on her birthday she said, "When I wake up will I be five?" How cute!!!

Thanks again for stopping by! Be back tomorrow for some Play Date Cafe goodness:} Be blessed!
