Savannah update...

Ok, so a few posts ago I let you know that one of my chick's has left the nest for a few weeks. I talk to her almost everyday. She is having fun but misses home and her own bed. I just received news that I have a business trip for 4 days the day after she comes home. Oh man, that stinks!!!

I am so lucky to have Savannah. She is so amazing. We have a great relationship and we talk a lot about almost everything. I am proud of the Godly decisions she is making in an age of so much peer pressure. We chatted and laughed tonight on the phone and it made the wait for her to come back home a little easier.

She has been spending time with my neice and nephew, Austin and Tori. (my brother Sy's kids) Austin and Savannah were born the same year so they have always been very close. Then we were blessed with Tori too. I was surprised to get photos in my email of them today. Austin and Tori's mom had a photographer take photo's of them together. This is so special, I can't even tell you. Soon Austin will come to stay with us for a few weeks and he and Savannah will go to Teen Mania's Extreme Camp together.

Here is one of the photos. Amee is going to give me the rest when Austin comes to Dallas. :)

Ahhh....Could they be any cuter? Love you guys! XOXO

I love teenagers Amber. Especially when they have good morals and wholesome personalities. They're really fun to be around. I can imagine how much you miss your baby.

I spent time with my 14 year old nephew from Va. yesterday who moved away 2 years ago.

Awwwww, I so love that picture. I can't wait to see the rest of them. What a great idea. The 3 of them are too cute together, they have such a great relationship and I am so glad that Savvy gets to spend some time with them and I'm sure Austin is going to have a blast in Dallas.

Savannah is an amazing girl, she really has a great head on her shoulders and a love for God. She is so much like her Mommy too! :)

LOVE YOU GUYS!

You've been doing some blog work! Lookin' good! I can't believe A is walking by herself already. She is soooo stinkin' cute! It seems like Savvy has been gone for a month or something...doesn't seem like a week! She will be home soon & in your arms before you know it. I'm sure A is lovin' the extra attention though...not like she doesn't get attention ALL THE TIME! And yes, I'm blogging while I'm at work... :)

Great shot of the cousins! What a treasure. I am sure you miss your girl. I know I would. I'm sure Ayana misses her big sis too.
