Sugar & Spice & Everything Nice...

My dear friend Em and her precious little family drove down from Kennesaw, GA to meet Isabella and spend the weekend with us! We had one full house of girls.....four babies all under the age of 3! It was a house full of giggles, hugs, kisses, squeals, bows, doll babies and lots of TLC! Em and I have been friends for over 18 years! We experienced middle school & high school together and our friendship has deepened throughout the years no matter how many miles may seperate us! It's something we always dreamed of......a conversation may have gone like this when we were 13...
"Em, one day when we get married and have babies...let's promise to have vacations together no matter how far apart we may live from each other!" And that little promise we have kept!.....

Lots of sweet sugar while cuddling on the couch together...

It was a rainy weekend.....but of course, we still had a beach adventure with the girls! Yes, our SUV's were the ONLY vehicles at the beach! Some would say we are crazy to load up 4 children under the age of 3.........but of course, it was worth all the effort! The girls loved seeing the beach, having a picnic under the pavilion and Abby Jane especially enjoyed collecting sea shells! =)
I got some sweet sugar from Joy...."Joyous"!

And our little family of three!

All the babies piled up in the chair....notice how Isabella is so content to sit and smile while the twins try to crawl away! That is the difference between 10 months and 4 months!

Isabella's favorite place to be these days!

We took advantage of a break between the big gray clouds on Saturday and ventured out to show the girls our favorite park! We all enjoyed the swings......a few rain drops won't melt the babies! =)

One of the sweetest things in life is friendship! I'm so thankful for the friendships the Lord has blessed me with through life! Friendships that are woven together in the Lord are the ones that last a lifetime.......and I'm so blessed to have those life long friends! I pray that little Isabella will be blessed with friendships in childhood, teen years, college and motherhood who challenge her, encourage her and love her through the ups and downs of life! =)
What a special weekend full of life long memories!
