Lots of visitors and a yaya

We have been blessed these past few weeks with a bunch of visitors from Australia (mum and Joanne from my Navy days!!); Germany (Julia) and of course mum who has really been a HUGE help with Zachary and the house (I love you mum!) 

Zachary fell in the driveway while pushing his toy lawn mower :-(( After much blood, tears and 4 hours in the ER later, Zachary was all stitched up (well they used glue) and now he's been pointing out his "yaya" (boo boo) to everyone. He likes to add emphasis with a pout. Pretty cute :-)

So I told "my story" of the past year and a half, to my MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group this past Thursday....and it felt great! Zev and mum and some other ladies and I prayed over this talk and my goal was to glorify God first of all but also to share with the other mums that we each have a "story" and that by sharing it with another person, you may very well provide the encouragement that person needed (our theme for MOPS is "embrace your story" and I introduced my sweet friend Megan, who encouraged me when she shared her own traumatic brain injury story with me after my brain surgery last year.) 

So it's all good. It's all very good. It's fall here which in Virginia is a gorgeous time of year. A lot of people like the fall (Autumn) and the changing colors of the leaves really is beautiful :-)) 

Have a great weekend!

Much love,

New favorite place :-)

I think we have a new favorite place: the Children's Museum!!!! Zachary brought his buddies James and Brady and their super cool mamas, Megan and Natalie to the museum today. The three musketeers had a lot of fun and us girls enjoyed catching up and eating our salads on the water! Love this weather right now!! Such a blessed day. So thankful to The Lord for beautiful days and beautiful friends. Zachary has been sous asleep since we left the museum at 1pm!! I got a good nap in this afternoon too. Have a blessed week :-)

No-No and Broom Broom are here!

Zev's parents, Dave ("No-No" which is Italian for grandpa) and Judy ("Broom Broom" cause Zachary likes cars and motorbikes and apparently grandma Judy reminds him of these!) are visiting! He couldn't wait to show them his cars and balls and how he can slide down the slide all by myself. What a cutie patootie :-) They are enjoying playing with little man and mama is enjoying catching up in some extra naps and daddy loves the help from Dave with his man cave. 

Such a blessed month. Love you all. Praying that The Lord blesses you and keeps you from harm.
