A Good Friend Is A Priceless Treasure

Are you ready for A LOT of pictures...I mean...a lot?  This is me catching up on two back to back weekends spent with our dear friends, the Morris' from Virginia.  The first weekend my sweet friend Elissa offered to come down and keep me company when my hubby was gone for the week.  She has a two week old, a two year old, a four year old and two dogs.  Crazy momma!! I told her of course I would LOVE her to visit but, no, she was crazy and that was far too much for her to take on by herself.  Her hubby was working that weekend so she would be doing it all on her own..a 3.5 hour drive with 5 animals and children in the car.  But, she said she REALLY wanted to be there for me so how could I refuse?  So down to NC she drove bringing her brand new baby with her and her joy and friendship blessed my weekend immensely.  Not to mention her hubby ended up getting his weekend job canceled and was able to come down and join us also.  They were such a blessing to me that weekend!  The next weekend we had prior plans to go visit them to see their new baby (before their support visit to see me) and for Joey and Mike to go to a men's retreat together.  We still wanted to go so we got to see them twice in two weeks.  That is a BIG deal as we often go months without getting together and it made me happy;0. I wish they lived next door!  I got to take a few pictures of new baby Everette sleeping around which is what he does 90% of the time and some pics for momma with her boys. These friends are priceless to us! They have blessed our lives with so much love and laughter.  They are the kinds of friends that we can all get in jammies together, watch The Office and crack jokes until well past our bed time (we are exhausted by 10 now).  The kinds of friends that have seen us in the good the bad and the ugly and still love us and support us and somehow still think we are pretty cool. We love em!

Forgive me for these smaller than usual pictures.  I have a load of issues going on over here with Flickr (I'm locked out of my account and have been waiting over a week for a support response!), my photo blog got redesigned which is great but, it messed up the code on my personal blog and changed the format for uploading pics so now I don't know how to make them large as the HTML code is different now.  Sigh.  Drama.  Hope Flickr gets me back in the game soon!! For now...smaller is better.  After all, this is a MONSTER post! 



Everette is such a GOOD angel baby!

my cute little bath queen.  She loves bath time though they have gotten much shorter because she knows how to climb out of the tub now! Below: Daisy hangs on my legs ALL DAY LONG...either yelling at me or crying for me to pick her up.  I thought this picture captured her perfectly !lol








Life with 3 boys! Elissa is an amazing mommy and does an amazing job of juggling life with 3 little ones!

love this sweet picture of momma with her newest little guy.  Doesn't she look fantastic by the way!

  1. I'm loving all the pictures. It looks like you had a wonderful time. Do you have a Pro flickr account? I'm not sure why it would have locked you out. That would be very annoying.

  6. That must have been some visit with all of those little ones under one roof! I love all of the photos, but the one of Daisy looking up and yelling at you is hilarious! (Also, you friend had a baby two weeks ago? She looks AMAZING!)

  11. How sweet of your friend. Yes she looks fantastic for having a 2 week old baby and 2 other boys - that's talent.

  12. Beautiful photos! I so wish I had that treasured friend at that time in my life. I was the first to have kids in the group & by the time they all caught up we had drifted so far apart that we hardly ever talk anymore. It is something to be cherished for sure!

  14. AHH! Casey, Daisy's bath look is classic, and...I seem to recall enjoying being held back in the day. ;) She learned it from her Aunty!
    I love you so much, and Elissa looks beautiful!

  16. Such adorable kiddos! Friends really are a blessing and I know I am lucky to have so many dear friends who would do anything for me and I would do the same for them. It sounds like you, also, have and are a wonderful friend! Glad you got to spend time together! I love the pics!

  18. Oh my goodness soooo sweet! Love them all!! Did you get a carrier?

  19. I am blushing right now! I didn't think I was going to be able to check your blog (withdrawal!) during our vaca, but I am and to my surprise you have blessed me dearly! I love all the photos, you captured some great ones:-) I would have been crazy to NOT come down and see you, you have blessed my life more than you will ever know and this was the least I could do. Oh...and having that two week old...baggy clothes do the trick:-)
