Princess in the House!

The Princess Miss Daphne Jill Shirley came to California to meet and greet her subjects. She was blessed in the same dress her momma was 27 years ago, made by my mom Geri Pitt....so special! Our sweet girl in white, received her blessing from her daddy Matt at Church on Sunday. She was royally welcome by her subjects and we all gathered for a luncheon in her honor afterward. There approx. 75 family and friends came together to celebrate her new life, and our new little love. Her brother adores her, her mother and father love her dearly, and she melts Gramma and Grampa's hearts! We love having our little chats! while they were here a few days it was a really lousy time for my camera to be broken!! So we rely on momma Heidi's camera, but ya know we were both too busy to get as many pics as we wanted.


Thursday, picnic and play at Corona Citrus Park Splash Zone. Jackson was in his element, hanging out with Skyler and romping in the water!then Friday, we had dinner at Huntington Beach....no pictures :(
Then Saturday morning dawned with our little man kicking back on gramma's front porch with a soda, and a little man sized chair, doesn't get much better for a 2 year old little guy.
We gave dad a little tease with a "taboo" mohawk...for just a few hours....A few hours later Skyler finished off the buzz cut, and just in case you didn't already know... this guy is a rock star to us, whatever his hair looks like. He is so smart, and so fun....they are off to Utah now.....Miss them already! It's gonna be a very long 4 (5) months til Christmas, when I can kiss my little cherubs again....

Your little princess is so precious. How nice that she was blessed in her mama's dress. That is really special.

Your family is so supportive. It is wonderful that 75 of you could get together to celebrate with Miss Daphne.

I loved all of the pictures. I know that you had a wonderful time together and you really miss them now. I feel the same way.

I saw you at church today. I love watching your sweet smiling face. I didn't get a chance to get over to you (Isn't it funny that we always sit on the opposite sides of the chapel???)but I loved seeing you. Seeing you always makes my heart smile.

Have a great week ahead. Love, Lura

It hardly seems fair that the ones with our grandchildren are the ones who live so far away. Every 4-5 months is too long and so much changes in that amount of time. My one consolations is the fact that there is SO MUCH anticipation on both sides when we do get a visit.

Isn't it crazy that when a new one joins the family, the older one suddenly looks older? Jackson looks like he's REALLY grown up.
