thanks for the hearty slice of life

The kids are asleep. Brad is out playing tennis with his brother. I don't feel like being irritated by TV, but I also don't feel like being truly productive. Hmmm...what shall I do? I totally just spent the last hour and a half absorbed in blogs and I just have to say thank you.

Thank you for opening your lives and sharing with me. It is amazing to see so many families that I've met from so many places along the way in my (and Brad's) life journey. You guys are all over the place doing all kinds of commendable things--babies being born, kids starting kindergarten, new houses, fun outings...living life and loving it!

I feel so blessed to have such great, admirable friends. Several of your blogs touched me to tears. I've been entertained. I've gained insight. I am impressed and inspired. Life is so precious and I appreciate being able to share it with you peculiar people!

Thank you for the uplifting evening. Let's stay in touch.

I just love you!! Thanks for sharing your bits of life with us! We are blessed! And by the way, that picture is absolutely beautiful of you and your girls. It needs to be framed somewhere in your house.

ps-isn't it nice to live close to family...I think it's great that Brad and Ryan can have brother time.

We love the FALKES!!!
I hope it wasn't the pictures of Brock that made you cry. He has a tendency to scare people.
It is nice to catch up on blogs, but you and Brad need to come down here because we have an incredible sushi place we need to take you to.
