HomeAgain, HomeAgain, Jiggity-Jog

All good things must come to an end and today was it ( at least for a while)!  I have been with Harper every day and night (except one night) for the past two weeks.

We have been fortunate to have had her and love on her, laugh at her little antics and correct her when needed while Kelly has been getting some much-needed rest!  But today we packed up all her little belongings and hit the road for home!

These are a few more pictures I made yesterday and today!











Now I have to clean my house which I have totally neglected this past week!
But as the old adage goes, you'll always have cleaning to do but you won't always have sweet children at home who need your attention!

Mine got my full attention!

We miss you Harper Brown Stamps!

I know all of you enjoyed those two weeks together. It was sweet to see the reunion pictures on Kelly's blog. Harper sure was happy to see her mama! You are such a good Nonny. :)

Looks like Miss Harper had a great time! You and hubs are such nice grandparents!! I have always heard life is different when you have grandchildren compared to when you were raising your own children. :-) have a good day!

Love seeing your sweet little Harper with Papa. My dad passed away 5 years ago this May :( I am sad that he never met & doesn't know my little boy Justin (3 yrs). We are so blessed that he spend alot of wonderful times with my older boys. Your pictures of Harper and Hollis with their Papa makes me smile. Thank you for that! I know that my Dad is watching and enjoying my boys from Heaven. You are such blessed Granparents to have such wonderful Grandbabies and they are so blessed to have such a loving and wonderful Nonny & Papa. Enjoy it all :)God Bless you all!

Thanks for always sharing so openly about your family I love your blog!! If its ok it would like to share something with you about my daugher..
A local News Station KNWA came yesterday to do a segment on my daughter, Morgan Timbs. She has been raising money for the children of Methodist Family Health. So far she has raised $240.00. She still has a ways to go to meet her goal of $1000 so Please take a moment and read about her amazing efforts and donate!! With the money that is raised she will be helping so many kids from right here in Arkansas that are neglected or abused. What makes this a Unique fundraiser is that Morgan decided to give up her allowance for Lent and donate it to this charity then she decided to take it a step further and turned it into a personal mission to reach out to 1000 people and get them to donate!
My daughter is only 13yrs old and has a passion for mission work and helping others. She is a youth member at First United Methodist Church in Bentonville and attends Bentonville School District. I am in total AWE of her and she has inspired me in so many ways.
Thank You for your time

First, thank you so, so much for your sweet comment on my blog.
And you are gonna laugh but when I clicked over onto your blog, I saw the pictures and I thought "I know those people" and "That little girl looks so familiar".
Then it dawned on me. You are Kelly's mom. HA! SO glad to have found your blog. I will be following!

Marie said...

Blessed grandchildren to have grandparents like you!

Stephanie said...

Thank you for your sweet comments this morning about my post. It is an honor to have other ministry wives like you, who have faithfully walked this road and are willing to encourage those of us who are just getting our feet wet! Many blessings to you and your sweet family! Sure do love Kelly and her girls :)
