So much to tell...

Some weekends are humdrum.
Not this one.

It was great... and yet I just found out some very sad news: our dear friend-like-a-brother, Keith Prather, lost his father this morning.  My heart goes out to the whole family.
Susan paid tribute to him on Facebook with these words...
This morning my sweet father-in-law went to be with Jesus. He was one of the most devoted, Godly men I have ever been blessed to know. RIP Poppy Prather. Your legacy lives on in your children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and the many lives that you have touched throughout your life.feeling blessed.

And later she put this up...
That says it so well...
... for all of us who have lost loved ones.

But for tonight...
my heart is especially going out to all the Prathers.
 I love you all so much.

I was going to tell of other things
- like seeing THE SOUND OF MUSIC
at the Carrollton Plaza Arts Center this afternoon-
but I will let that be in another post.
(And oh, it WILL BE, because it was WONDERFUL.)

Instead I'll leave you with some sweet pictures I took last night at our house...
(you can click them to make them larger)
That's my mother, my daughter Laura holding her niece Nell, and Laura's husband Ryan.
(I like that picture.)

And here's Uncle Ryan with Nell...
 Aww.

Here's Nell with her mommy....

Here they are again...
All I can think to say is, "Aww." 
(I think that's a word.)

And here is Nell's fun aunt....

Oh, that Charlie Brown cartoon warms my heart. My sister lost someone very special this week and just found out today... so it speaks volumes to me!

That little Nell is too sweet!
