Baby Update!

While we were in Delhi, I went for my mid-pregnancy appointment to the OBGYN that I plan to use for delivery (assuming I make it to Delhi!) Everything went great! I got to sit there for about 40 minutes and watch my baby while the ultrasound technician measured and checked everything on Fergie 2. In our country, it’s illegal for the doctors to make known to the parents the gender of the baby. This is because boys are highly prized and girls are often seen as a curse from the gods, and are often aborted if found out about (and sometimes simply discarded after birth). I don’t understand this part of the culture at all, and mourn over the lostness of this sad mentality. However, because of that, we will not be finding out the gender of our baby. At first, that made me really nervous. Now, it just makes me somewhat nervous! J I’m pretty darn sure I know what we are having, but for this Type A planner to not know is just a little out of my comfort zone. However, I think about how every other woman in this country doesn’t know, and how our parents didn’t know, and it makes it a little more bearable! Anyway (rambling!), the ultrasound was great, the hospital was nicer than I expected, as was the doctor, and I left with a very positive attitude about everything. Fergie 2 is healthy and measuring exact to the day! The doctor still wants me to come 6 weeks early because of how early Corinth was, but our company only sends us 4 weeks before, so we’ll see what happens with that. Pray that the right decision is made by the people who make those decisions (not us!). I will be taking weekly baby belly shots and putting them on Facebook if you care to see the bump as it continues to grow! For now, I’ll leave you with 2 pictures- the first of which is from the day I found out I was pregnant, and the second is today, at 21 weeks! J

Right before my morning run (back when I lived in a city where I could run... sigh)
 21 weeks- over halfway there!
(Side note- I will be wearing this same outfit every week. Reason? I don't wear western clothes at all here, so I don't have very many, and the clothes I DO wear here look ridiculous for belly pictures!)


Merry Christmas again! Things were quite different for us this year! (Not that we've ever really had a 'normal'! Every year we've been together has been totally different!) Let's see...

We began the week's festivities by inviting neighbors and friends to our party. Most of our neighbors welcomed us into their homes for chai or coffee, most for the first time, so that was a great way to meet and get to know many people we live around! This has been a struggle for us, so that was one way we really saw God at work!

Christmas Eve we had a party with the rest of our team in our city. It was fun! We had some American foods, including cheese (can't get much here, and what we can get is not very good!), meatballs (chicken), and beef jerky (thank you to the Walls Family!) We also played a fun game where you have to draw a scene on a plate that's on your head. It was pretty funny, and Kyle the Artist's plate was definitely the worst! :-) We also did a gift exchange which was quite fun as well. And, most importantly, we read the Christmas story and talked about how important it is to our lives.

Christmas morning, we Skyped with both of our families. Those were great, because it really eased the sadness of being apart at Christmas. We love our families very much, and miss them a lot! Then, our friend John came over and I made homemade monkey bread- first time ever using yeast!- and then we opened the rest of our presents! Corinth was beyond happy with opening presents and having so many new things to play with and wear! Thank you to everyone who sent things- it really meant so much to us.
After that, Kyle and I took turns being sick for the rest of the morning. I won the contest, he started feeling better, and I was in bed for the next 2 days. We debated on whether or not to cancel our Christmas party because we were both feeling so miserable, but he was getting better so we decided he could handle it without me. I spent our entire Christmas party locked in my room listening as 25-30 people gathered and celebrated in my living room!

Kyle did a fabulous job with the party! He said it went great! Most of our neighbors came, as did many friends. They loved the food, laughed a lot (I could hear everything!), sang Christmas songs while Kyle played the guitar, and Kyle even told the Christmas story in Hindi. It was such a success, which all glory can be given to God for!

We missed seeing and talking with many of you before and on Christmas, and want you to know that we love you very much!

Early morning smiles! She's excited!
 So happy!
 Merry Christmas! Love, the Fergusons
 Friends and neighbors enjoying the party!
 Food and fun!

Christmas is FAST approaching! Am I ready? No, I have a million things left to do! Am I otherwise ready? Yes, I LOVE Christmas! This year it is very different, not only because we are away from pretty much everything and everyone that we know, but also because our family is trying to be very intentional about celebrating CHRISTmas, and not presentmas, treemas, or american-secularismmas. Which do you celebrate?!? At first I thought, "this is dumb! I want a tree, and Santa, and lots of presents, and everything Christmassy." But it has been great!

We love doing Advent every night. I made a felt Advent/Jesse tree last year, and we have loved having our Advent time in the evenings. Every night, we have an ornament, story, prayer, song, and special candy. Corinth loves it, and several times a day goes up to the Advent box and says, "please. please. please." I love it! Also, we (I) have been crafting a lot. This has seemed to be one of the things that makes me feel most at home. That, and baking, which I have also done a lot of. If you know me well, neither of these activities should come as a shocker to you! :-) We also had an Elf-watching party (also, not a shocker!) and it was great! So fun, and really got me in the Christmas mood!

We are planning on having a team Christmas party Christmas Eve, and then having our own Christmas on Christmas morning. Christmas evening we are having a party for our neighbors and some friends. Hopefully this will be a good time of outreach and that many neighbors come! During those days we will also Skype with family, which we are really excited about! We have many things to look forward to! Please pray for us (especially for me) as this is our first Christmas away from home and I'd be lying if I said I would rather be here than home. I know God has us here, and I have peace about that, but it doesn't stop the longings of my heart for family!

Merry Christmas from the Fergusons, and I really hope you know Jesus and focus your time in the next week on HIM and the wonder that He loved us so much to save us. He is our Lord! Merry Christmas!!!

Yes, I bought a Christmas outfit! (After all, I am a teacher at heart!!!) :-)
Our Advent Tree! (It's more filled in now- only 4 days left!)
One of the many crafts we've done! This time, our neighbor and his mom joined us! :-)

Mother of More Than One

I have been having a difficult time lately, thinking about how different life is going to be with two children. Don't get me wrong- I am THRILLED to have another baby, I'm just sad that life will never be the same as it is now. (Tears already flowing as I write this...) I cherish my moments with Corinth. Even when she's not a perfect angel, I still love her so much. I love laughing with her, I love holding her hand, I love making faces at her at the table, I love when she gives me tight hugs, I love singing songs with her, I love when she makes sure her kiss is exactly on my lips. I love it all. Every day she makes me smile, and every day I am reminded that she is one of the greatest blessings of my life. Life is so wonderful with Corinth, Mommy, and Daddy. And I am afraid of everything changing. And I'm not so naïve as to believe that things won't change. They will have to. I feel like my time with her is slipping away, maybe because she's getting bigger (and I don't like it) and maybe because I know there is a +1 coming soon. I don't want to be sad when I put her to bed because I know another day is over, but I'm having a hard time with this season of life. I've heard that going from 1 to 2 is the most difficult transition, and I absolutely believe it. I want to be all that I can be for my kids, and I want them to all have wonderful, full lives. I would love to hear from those of you with multiple children advice or thoughts on this. This Mommy needs your prayers also. Thanks friends.

Our first holiday away from home (excluding Halloween!) was a success! It was quite an adventure, and I'd like to share it with you!

We spent our Thanksgiving with many other American families (about 50 people including children), and drove a LONG way to get there! We left at 4:30am and drove about 7 hours from our city to P city, where we stayed for the night. Then, the next morning we left at 5am for a 12 hour journey to S city, where we spent 3 days for Thanksgiving. It was AWESOME! We had all of the wonderfully American Thanksgiving foods, of which my favorite was mac and cheese, as was Kyle's, and Corinth's favorite was ham. :-) We also all enjoyed pumpkin pie! I loved relaxing with other English speakers, and I really, really loved that I could let Corinth run and play with the other kids and not have to worry about nationals here picking her up, taking pictures of her, and pinching her cheeks (which is what happens every time we go out on a normal day here). It was a very relaxing and refreshing time. After those 3 days, we travelled with all of those friends up to K town, a town in the foothills of the Himalayas, which was just ridiculously beautiful and cool to know that I was in the tallest mountain range in the world! NBD... In K town, we had a retreat, where we enjoyed more rest, relaxation, great company with one another, and breathtaking views of the mountains. From our hotel, we could see Nepal, Bhutan, and the 3rd tallest mountain in the world. Pretty spectacular! After 3 days there, we headed back down the mountain to S town and stayed the night, followed by a LONG journey back to our city.

That journey included: a supposed-to-be 12 hour drive that ended up being 16 because of: a luggage rack almost falling off a car and having to be transferred to another car in our caravan, a car with a dead clutch plate that had to be replaced, and for which we spent 3 hours in a (very nice and hospitable) car dealership, and to top off the night we were in an accident with a semi-truck getting stuck to the side of our car, smashing the 2 doors in (not completely) and having to be backed up in traffic so it wouldn't completely rip off the front panel of our car. I have never, NEVER been more happy to get out of a car safely! The next day, we travelled back to our city for what was supposed to be 7 hours but ended up being 8 1/2, and about 10 minutes into it the driver of our car hit a guy on a motorcycle. Let's just say that I never want to ride in a car again! :-)

God gave us a great week of rest and relaxation with friends, and then Satan tried to take away our joy from our trip, but was (of course!) unsuccessful! I am thankful for this week, for all of you, and mostly for Jesus Christ, who gives me hope and blessings every day! Here are a few pics of Thanksgiving!

Happy playing on the slide!
 Lots of yummy food!
 Corinth playing with friends- my favorite part of the day!
 Thanksgiving family photo!
 K town, foothills of the Himalayas- beautiful!
 Behind us is the 3rd tallest mountain in the world!
Now, we're preparing for Christmas- this is how we decorate presents here! :-)

Dev Diwali, Henna, and Candy!

This week was great! Actually, I had kind of an off week with wanting to study Hindi (aka not wanting to study!) but, other things were great!

First, Dev Diwali was this weekend. Diwali is celebrated in most of South Asia, but I think Dev Diwali is celebrated in very few places. However, since we live in the holiest of Hindu cities, of course we celebrate ALL the holidays! Diwali is a day (3) for people to celebrate, but Dev Diwali is a day for the gods to celebrate. We heard there would be thousands of people at the ghats (steps next to the river), so we decided to go down and check it out. It was actually really fun! There were not very many people actually worshipping, but tons of people lighting candles for prettiness and just having fun. There were tons of vendors for food, cotton candy, peanuts, cheap jewelry, balloons, etc. I told Kyle it was a lot like being at the State Fair of Texas. :-) We were not planning on going on a boat ride, because they are supposed to be super expensive on Dev Diwali, but we ended up being talked into it by a very good salesman/boat-rower for a very good price... it was so fun! We got to see the candles along many of the ghats in our city, which is famous for its ghats! It was my first time on a boat on the river here, and it was a very fun experience. It was also Corinth's very first boat ride, and she LOVED it! The pictures I got are terrible, because it was nighttime and my camera stinks at night, but here are a few semi-decent pics!
Family photo
No, this is not a swastika. It is a backwards swastika, which is the sign for peace. It's all over the place here!
The best picture I could get of the boats.
She was super happy about that balloon, and that made us super happy too!

Also, this week, I hosted my first mehendi party. (Henna is the same thing as mehendi.) Women often have mehendi parties, sometimes before special events like weddings, but sometimes just for fun! I had 12 people there, which I was glad about for my first event. I told a story IN HINDI!!! The story went with the mehendi design, and after we all talked about the story, we all drew the design on each others hands. The evening was pretty much only in Hindi, since I was the only one there who doesn't speak it, so it was great language practice. My friend told me today that there were some GREAT conversations going on that I am so thankful to God for! You can look up the stories at, and have your own henna party! If there is a mid-eastern or South Asian/Indian store close to you, they either have henna or can tell you where to get it! I look forward to having many more mehendi parties!

Some of my friends at the party!
Good discussion too! :-)

Also, this week, we got 3 packages! What?!? Yes, 3! Hooray! Corinth got an early Christmas present from her Mimi, we got a small package of wonderful things from my mom (including Christmas ornaments!), and a HUGE box of candy from the Worleys! We couldn't even wait until after we took a picture before eating some! Thank you all for loving us in this way!

She was genuinely this happy about the candy!
Corinth loves the ring pops!
I just LOVE Christmas!
Oh, and by the way, Happy Thanksgiving! Thank God for all of His blessings!

Baby #2 Update

We went for our second visit to the doctor yesterday. I thought I'd share the experience with you.

It actually started 3 days ago. We went on Wednesday night, which is a 20 minute ride away. You don't make appointments here, doctors just have certain hours that they work every day. Our doctor works from 6-8pm. We arrived to the office at 6pm, went to the desk to tell them we were there to see Dr. Singh, and they looked at us like, "who?" We said, "we are here to see Dr. Singh. Is she here?" They told us that she, in fact, was not there. She had gone on vacation and would be back Friday. Touche... this happened the first time we went to see her also. Kyle said later, "first time- shame on them... second time- shame on us." So, that was our failed attempt on Wednesday.

So, yesterday (Friday), we went back to the doctor, arriving at about 6:20. We tell them we are there to see Dr. Singh, is she here, and they say yes and tell us to sit down. So we do. For an hour and a half. At 7:40, she walked in the front door of the clinic, and we went back about 10 minutes later. Are you kidding? I mean, I know this is South Asia, but you're a professional doctor! Come on!!! So, Kyle and I and our 2 larger-than-life attitudes walked back to her office. She asked me if she'd seen me in her office before. I said yes, but left out the "I'm pretty sure I'm the only white girl patient you have right now" part. My head is so sassy sometimes! Then, she asked me why I didn't bring my paperwork from last time. I told her no one told me I was supposed to, to which she rebuttled with a short lecture about how she can't treat me properly without knowledge of previous appointments. Sassy thoughts continue... After that, it got better. I laid down to have the ultrasound done, and she said, "Do you have any twins in your family history?" I quickly said, "no, no one in my family has twins... and neither do I... only 1 baby..." She didn't think that was very funny. Oh, well.

All that said, baby F2 is doing great, measuring at 14 weeks and 2 days, and developing well! Every time I see babies (in real life or on the computer) I get really excited to meet my baby! Corinth was a spectacular baby, and I know they won't be the exact same, but I hope our 2nd is as enjoyable as our 1st is! God is good, and we are so blessed! Thanks for listening to my prego-rave! Talk to you soon!

Diwali, Housewarming, and a Man in a Tree

Happy Saturday! We have had a great week, filled with many things, of which I can only share tiny pieces with you!

First, last weekend was Diwali. Diwali, known as the Festival of Lights, is celebrated to remember the Hindu god Ram defeating another god, Ravan, in battle. Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity, is also celebrated, but she will only visit your home if it is very clean. (Because of this, our apartment complex set the huge trash pile outside on fire, which we were thankful for!) Diwali is like the South Asian version of Christmas and New Years put together. It is celebrated by Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, and Jains, which are all of the major religions here, other than Muslims. During this 3 (in our city it was actually 5) day festival, all businesses and many homes decorate the outside of their buildings by hanging lights like we do on Christmas. Many people have parties in their homes for family and friends, and everyone lights firecrackers and fireworks in the streets or on their rooftops. While we did not celebrate Diwali, we did go over to a friend's house for dinner and firecrackers. It was like Kyle was back in Kansas, up on the roof setting off firecrackers, fountains, and other fireworks with the boys! (It was cute to watch him!)

Our trash pile burning! Hooray!
 (Our building during Diwali)

Secondly, we had our housewarming party/ Christian worship ceremony in our home yesterday. It is common to invite neighbors over for a welcoming party after you have moved, so we decided that would be a great way to get to know people and tell them more about us. We had 15 people attend, most of whom were friends or people we meet with often, but a few were neighbors. Others that could not attend also brought us flowers and chocolate, which was SO sweet! Our party was very good, and we felt that it opened several doors for us to get to know our neighbors more soon. We also wore our very traditional South-Asian clothing, which was so fun!

Family photo, South Asian style!
Our ceremony 'stuff.'

And finally, this is what I saw out my window while eating breakfast this morning. Just another day in paradise, people!

This is our view from our dining room.
This is a man shimmying up the tree! We have no idea why...
Have a great weekend!

New Names and Sick Monkeys

This one will be short!

Last night, we went to a study of The Word at a young, new believer's house. She and her sister (16 and 14) have started this study and have all of their family (including their unbelieving parents) coming, as well as a few other friends. After the study was over, the girls told Kyle and I that our names are very difficult for people here to pronounce. (Kyle's 'y' is uncommon and my 'th' is uncommon.) Therefore, they gave us new, Hindi names! My name is Jyoti and Kyle's name is Prakash. Both mean "light." I like it! (Though I still like Kathy better!)

Also, Corinth has been sick with a deep chest cold the last 3 days. Today, while my house helper was mopping, Corinth and I sat on the porch. I hung a little trash bag on the bar of the balcony "fence" so that I could throw the 1 million tissues Corinth was going through into it. We came back inside for a few minutes, and when we came back out, I noticed that the monkeys had ripped a hole in the bag and taken some of the dirty tissues out. I told Kyle, and he I both said that we hope all the monkeys get sick from it! Kyle's language teacher thought this was hilarious and had a very good laugh over it.

Chai and the Palace


This week went really well! Language is SLOWLY progressing, and Kyle and I are both trying to use what we do know as much as we can while we are out in the community. Our house helper only speaks Hindi, and often tries her hardest to communicate with us what she needs from us or to ask what we need from her. She is so patient. I usually get around to understanding her much before Kyle does, and the other day she said (in Hindi), "Your Hindi is very good. His Hindi is not so good!" I laughed and hugged her. :-) My language teacher also told me I was meeting many goals, which is huge for her to say, because teachers here do not usually compliment at all. I say all of this not because my language is good AT ALL (I promise, it's not!), but to let you know that I have had an encouraging week with language.
Here are pictures of the monkeys on the wall outside our balcony, and the park that we go to often. It is about a 5 minute walk away. (We do NOT touch or interact with the monkeys. They are very mean and dangerous here!) 
Kyle got to go to a training for local leaders, which he loved and was very encouraged/excited by. We also went to an Indian friend's house 'fellowship' Sunday night, which we really enjoyed.

We are trying to have family days on Saturdays, where we try to do something fun as a family (and sometimes with friends also, which is fun!), and today we went to the Maharaja's Palace. He's the "king" of our city, though I don't think the present Maharaja actually lives in this palace anymore. It is a museum now of old carriages, war weapons, and pictures of an old Maharaja with leaders from countries around the world. It was fun to see, and Kyle and I both got to share the good news with people while we were there! Here are some pictures of our outing!
Looking out over the river
The Fort/ Palace that we visited
Corinth petting goats, very gently!
Other fun things that happened this week: I successfully went out without Kyle, once to the park with Corinth, and once all by myself to go have coffee with a friend. I was so excited!!! Also, I made chai on my own for the first time, and we received our first care package! I didn't take a picture of my excitement, but trust me, I was thrilled!!!!! Thank you Mommy and Daddy!
Love you all! ~Kathy

It's The Small Things...

It's the small things that sometimes make me so excited here! One day, I successfully bought paper clips, and I felt I had a productive day. :-) Well, this small thing has made me more excited that any other small thing lately (other than Corinth, who isn't so small anymore!):

We're having a baby!!! Yay!!!

Bhoht Jantu- That Means Many Animals!

We are in our new home! We moved into our flat on October 12th, and have been working like little ants scurrying about to make it a home...  tora tora, which means little by little! Speaking of ants, good grief there are lots of bugs here. And by here, I mean inside our flat (and outside, too, of course!). I have literally found a different kind of bug every day. My mom says that it is 'toughening me up.' ...okay... There are also TONS of animals here. It seems that there are some parts of the city where different animals tend to congregate, but our area of town is home to pretty much all of them! Within a 3 minute walking distance, we see these animals on a very regular basis: dogs, cows, goats, squirrels, water buffalo, wild hogs, butterflies, parrots, donkeys, chickens, and of course monkeys. So. Many. Monkeys. Our flat is on the trail that the monkeys take every day from wherever they start their day to wherever they end their day, so we can (and do) sit at our window and watch the monkeys for very long periods of time each day. Corinth loves watching them! :-) We also have a mongoose that lives in a thicket/trash area outside our window. And, last week was a Hindu festival, and during those few days, they were giving camel rides around our neighborhood. So, pretty much we live in a zoo.
We both (and I'm sure Corinth feels the same) feel like we ARE the zoo almost always when we go out. We are always talked to by strangers, Corinth's cheeks are always pinched, and someone almost always comes up to us and tries to take Corinth from us without asking so they can take a picture with her. You'd think it would be flattering, but I now feel very sorry for movie stars all over the world. Every time I go out, I feel like Julia Roberts. (Yes, I know I look nothing like her, she's just the movie star that always pops into my head!)
It is going to take a long time to get used to living here, but there are so many things that will always remain strange. You can pray for us that we would be at peace and find joy in simple things every day. Also, you can pray that we would learn Hindi quickly so that we can converse more with people than just "Hello. How are you? What is your name?" We have been doing language class with our tutors every weekday, and so far that is going well. Also, big shout out to Rosetta Stone- it's awesome!
Thank you for praying for us, for responding to our updates, and for your messages on Facebook and Viber. Hearing from you guys is encouragement that we really need, so if you ever even think about us, send us a message, even if it's just to say hi or to tell us what you had for dinner. We love you and want to be in your lives still, and vice versa! I'll leave you with a few pictures of our last few weeks, with a promise to get more pictures of our neighborhood and the environment in which we live! Love you!

Our (Second) First Week Here

A friend of ours who recently landed in our country sent out an email about his first days here. In this email, he very appropriately wrote what I have been feeling as well. I asked him if I could post his thoughts here. Here they are:

 "Ugh, we're here. Right now, you are probably thinking, "These are the ones we sent out? Shouldn't they be excited? Is it too late to find someone better to take their place?" Well, you may be able to find someone better, but the truth is that we are excited about why we are here. That reaction was directed more to the negative aspects of this country that came flooding back to our memories all at once. There is a misconception out there that all sent out ones really enjoy (even prefer) living where they live. The reality is that this place is dirty and smelly and polluted beyond belief. It's crowded and noisy and full of prejudice. It is a dark land full of blatant idolatry that provides a daily assault upon the senses and emotions. Sure, when you first come to South Asia, it can be new and exciting, but unfortunately, we skipped the honeymoon phase. There are some things we do genuinely enjoy about our country, but I'd much rather be in the Deep South, for sure. So, no, we don't particularly enjoy daily life here in many ways, but there is greater joy in telling someone about the Way when they have never heard it before. You can ask that we continue adjusting to life here and become comfortable in the culture. Ask that we would be granted a love for the people that overshadows our dislike for the rest of it."

Please pray for me, as I (again) am having a difficult time transitioning to a very different everything. We also have been living out of a suitcase for 11 months, and want to move into our apartment, but there are still many things that need to be done before we can do that. Please pray that those things are finished quickly and that we can happily settle into our new home. One more request is that my stomach will settle. The roads are terrible here, and every time we ride in a rickshaw I feel awful. Pray that we all adapt well to living here. Thank you for your support and encouragement. It is very helpful! We love you, and I'll write more soon!

A Life Without Fences

This entry is titled for the chapter in which the following quote is found. It is in the book A Chance to Die: The Life and Legacy of Amy Carmichael by Elisabeth Elliot. I finished reading this book last week, and it was fantastic. Amy Carmichael was a missionary to India in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Her life was such an example to others of how to live wholeheartedly for Christ. While the whole book was great, this short excerpt really stood out to me, and I wanted to share it with you. 

My vow. Whatsoever Thou sayest unto me, by Thy grace I will do it.
My constraint. Thy love, O Christ, my Lord.
My confidence. Thou are able to keep that which I have committed until Thee. 
My joy. To do Thy will, I God.
My discipline. That which I would not choose, but which Thy love appoints.
My prayer. Conform my will to Thine.
My motto. Love to live, live to love.
My portion. The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance. 

Teach us, good Lord, to serve Thee as Thou deservest; to give and not to count the cost; to fight and not to heed the wounds; to toil and not to seek for rest; to labor and not to ask for any reward save that of knowing that we do Thy will, O Lord our God.

My favorite line, and perhaps new life motto: Love to live, live to love. Thanks, Amy!

Another Life Update!

Hopefully soon we'll have more to say than we went swimming and we went to the park. (Don't get me wrong, I love these things, but I'm pretty sure you're not reading my blog because the fact that WE went to the park excites you!) Kyle has medical approval and is working on getting his visa this week. Here's what we've been up to lately!

She loves the kettle corn at the Wichita Farmer's Market!

 We went on a surprise date to Strataca- the underground salt mines!

Our surprise date also included camping on the river's beach and kayaking. It was a very fun overnight getaway!

 We enjoyed several outdoor concerts in Wichita! Corinth and Mimi were dancing during this song!

 We spent time with GG in OKC! She LOVES her GG, which is so special to me, because my Grandma is a very special person in my life!

She also loves her Great-Grandpa Billy!

 We had all the family over for Labor Day, and Corinth enjoyed kicking around the soccer ball with Tara!

Some of the family enjoying time together on a beautiful Oklahoma day. Love my OK family!

Thanks for reading! See you soon!
