love, laughter, smiles, grins, hugs, and a hat
This weekend was spent with family.. the best kind of family. Giggles, laughter--we had it all. spending time with our brothers, their wives and their children, it it simply doesn't get any better. we love and adore them, they love and adore us. and as adults we've forged bonds that cross the marriage spectrum also. dean and i are very blessed. and isn't it cool that they have children the same age? Our Jess got their total attention as a child growing up, now their children get ours.
I would say that there exist a thousand unbreakable links between each of us and everything else . . . The farthest star and the mud at our feet are a family; and there is no decency or sense in honoring one thing, or a few things, and then closing the list. The pine tree, the leopard, the Platte River, and ourselves--we are at risk together, or we are on our way to a sustainable world together. We are each other's destiny.--Mary Oliver
oh, and I finished a hat! the lollipop hat. little Eric, held by dean was the lucky recipient.
