Pool Party

Sunday

It was MORNING FUN TIME for Nora and Daddy this morning. She got her little necky kissed and raspberried.

“Woah! What the heck was THAT??!!”

“What time is it? Oh, it’s Morning Fun Time with Daddy!!”

A couple of weeks ago we gained another member of our household, thereby gaining another member of our family. Kelly has been one of Nora’s sitters for quite some time now and has always been a joy to have around! We excitedly opened our home to her when she mentioned in conversation that she was looking for a new place to live. I honestly could not have asked for a better arrangement and I hope she feels the same! She is SO witty, and SO funny and fits right in as if though she were one of my sisters. Gavin and Greta ADORE her too!

Yesterday afternoon Kelly and I set up Nornor’s pool on the back deck and had a fabulous pool party! Thank you for taking all the pictures, Kelly!

“I don’t want to use that nasty hose water!” misheard as, “I don’t want to use that nasty hoe’s water!” provided hours of uncontrollable laughter!!!

Anyway – back to the pool party ~
We tuned in some reggae on the outside speakers, and wouldn’t you know the very first song that came on (listen closely in the video):

“I totally like LOVE this new suit! Like, let’s go SWIMMING!!”

“Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
(John 4:13, 14 NIV)

Sweet nakey cakes wrapped up and ready to go back inside.

We were poolside and “inpool” for well over an hour and Nora loved every minute of it! She agreed that this was the perfect way to spend a sticky, humid day! Thank you so much for the pool, Aunt Maggie!!!

Come evening time, Nora and Daddy were ready for a run. This is a baby with an active lifestyle, for sure!

A Supermoon to end a Superday!

The moon and stars to govern the night; His love endures forever.
(Psalm 136:9 NIV)

I can’t wait to see those big kids on Wednesday!!!

Update on Sarah: She is still in the hospital and is expected to be there until Tuesday. Tomorrow’s lab results should be able to pinpoint exactly which bacteria has invaded her bloodstream. Yesterday, Sarah’s oldest daughter fell and hit her head which required a visit to the ER and 3 stitches just above her eyebrow! We weren’t sure whether to laugh or cry!! It was reassuring to see Gracie smiling in her “after” photos! Thank you so much for your prayers!

  1. Whaattt? . Did I miss the first pool party of the year ???.
    Not sure about the background music in the video ( is it ” everything is gonna be all right” ???; seriously, need to improve my listening skills in English; I understood everything you said in the video, but sometimes depending on the accent, I miss some word).
    Keep on praying for Sarah.You can’t imagine how much joy brings me seeing Nornor happy during stressful times!!. It’s the best reward I can have in return for praying for her every day!!
    Muaahhhh 🙂

  2. Just watched the video with my son looking over my shoulder. He said, “mom is that the baby that likes baths?” I laughed and said, “it sure is!”

  3. I love the pool pictures that is so great for her to have all these experiences!! I am so glad you don’t treat her like she is going to break!! See you this week!!

  4. OH MY GOODNESS, NORA IS SUCH A LITTLE BATHING BEAUTY. SHE IS ADORABLE IN HER SWIM SUIT. SHE REALLY DOES LOVE BEING IN WATER. I THINK SHE IS PART MERMAID. A GOOD NICKNAME FOR HER IS AREIAL. (DON’T THINK THAT IS SPELLED RIGHT) BUT SHE COULD BE THE “LITTLE MERMAID”. SHE LOOK SO SWEET IN ALL HER NEW SUMMER CLOTHES. BET SHE WILL BE GLAD WHEN THE BIG KIDS GET BACK. TELL GAVIN I LIKE HIS NEW HAIR STYLE. GRETA LOOKS SO CUTE IN HER ROLLERS. THAT POOL WAS A GREAT INVESTMENT. I AM SURE IT WILL BE USED JUST ABOUT EVERY DAY. LOVE YOU ALL. GOD BLESS. I AM SO HAPPY SARAH IS DOING BETTER, WILL KEEP PRAYING.
