Yesterday I got to see precious Anna.

She's 4 1/2 months old now.

She was sleeping on my shoulder in my "About Me" picture (on the right sidebar), but she was wide awake and darling yesterday.

Well, she's darling asleep, too.

I don't know if a baby can get much sweeter.

On a totally different note, I had the privilege last night of playing background music for a special dinner benefiting Camp El Tesoro de la Vida, a children's grief camp. The dinner was at the First United Methodist Church in downtown Fort Worth. There was a silent auction as well as a wonderful meal, and program... with all proceeds going to the camp...
... which is fantastic.
Click HERE to go to their website. There's a video that is GREAT... which was featured on Fox 4 News.
The director of the camp is Denis Cranford. He is Vice President and Performance Manager for JPMorgan/Chase, has been a volunteer at the camp since 1992, and its director since 1996. He's also a dealer at LONE STAR ANTIQUES!
I hope you have a great day.
(And I hope you take the time to watch that video on that children's grief camp website. It's really good.)

Oh sweet Anna! I love that picture of her -- she's clearly learning facial expressions from her siblings. Sadly, I didn't get to see her on Friday. I'm pretty sure she was sleeping. ;)

I am doing a rotation in the PICU at Cook right now, and my supervisor is the child life specialist at El Tesoro! She talks about it almost daily. She LOVES it. I'm so glad you were there! She was there also at the dinner, I'll tell you that I know the piano player :)

My hometown...

I am thinking of my hometown now. Mission, Texas. And McAllen, Texas. And Mercedes, Texas, where I was born. And Donna, Texas, so near there...
