Cutting teeth

Well, after much anticipation the arrival of Evy's first teeth has come! On Thursday Gidget told me that there was a hole in her bottom gums and today I got a full view of one, possibly 2, teeth poking up! She has to laugh just right so that her lip comes down far enough to see and I got a good look. Later this afternoon while playing with her, she bit me! So the tooth has broken through and is working its way up and its a sharp little sucker! Gidget is very glad she has already stopped breastfeeding :-). As soon as it comes out all the way I will get a picture and share!

Things are really getting busy, especially this week. Monday I worked at the church plus ran a bunch of errands and took Ty to the vet. He had his teeth cleaned - he was NOT happy with me when I picked him up! Today the horse shoer came, tomorrow the vets are coming, Thursday I work at the church, Friday we will be preparing for the trail ride and Saturday is SADDLE UP FOR ST JUDE! We really don't know how many people to expect because not many have pre-registered. We could have 30, we could have 80 we don't know!

Tonight I went to the wedding of a widow and widower in their 60's! It was darling, they are precious. I met Francis a couple of months ago when the "Singles Again" and "Singles" Sunday School classes got together for dinner and bowling. She is the mother of Carmen who I've known for awhile and enjoy visiting with. So I enjoyed Francis as well! She has been a widow for 2 years and recently met Don who lost his wife in December after a long illness. They hit it off and decided to get married, in about a months time span! But it was fun to see them all dressed up and acting like true newlyweds. They wouldn't stop holding hands or touching each other and they were surrounded by their families. I love weddings of any kind and this is my first of one such as theirs! Love rocks!

Speaking of weddings, in just a few weeks I will "legally" have a sister in law! I can't wait! Just last night in the car I heard the song by Mark Schultz and Natalie Grant "When God Made You" and it made me cry. I love my brother dearly - we have grown as close siblings and friends in the past few years - and he has found a fabulous girl to marry and I love her too! I am just so amazed at how they are together and the way their relationship works. I am so thankful that God brought them together because it gives me hope for myself. God can overcome small things such as state lines, age gaps and health. He is GOOD! And just for the fun of it, I am posting one of my favorite pictures of the two of them. This is one of my favorite things about Dean and Jill - I know he will protect her and cherish her always.
