She's more than I could have ever hoped or dreamed for in a friend. She has been so faithful, even in my ugliest moments. And believe me, I can get ugly! We have laughed together, cried together, played together, prayed together, we have fought, forgiven each other, griped about our husbands to each other, then rebuked each other, then encouraged each other, been pregnant together with the two most amazing little girls, been birth coaches for each other, moreover we have shared our lives together.
Jody is beautiful, funny, outgoing, confident, passionate, strong, dependable, LOUD, loyal & caring. She loves God. She loves her family. She is a fantastic mother. She loves RED. She makes the best chicken 'n' noodles and coleslaw. She loves to have fun.
OK, really this post is not about Jody. It is about our beautiful girls, Sophia Grace and Claire Ellen. So here they are.
This picture reminds me of two little grown-ups. They look way too mature here.
No that is not a stuffed animal. It's our puppy Beasley.
This was our last family outing together before Claire and her family moved back to Smallville, Illinois.
The Robinsons moved to Dallas two years after we did. Nine years later they decided it was time to go home.
We drove home for a visit 3 months after they moved. Home for them is home for us. We all grew up in don't blink or you'll miss it, Central Illinois.
Good old fashioned pin curls......these girls were stylin.
Lake Storey Park where we spent many summers swimming is now iced over for a fun day in the snow.
Claire and her Daddy came in April for Sophie's birthday.
Club Libby Lu had these girls all decked out.
Back again for a fall visit, my Mom taught the girls how to embroider.
Here are their beautiful hand embroidered pillows.
