Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone; but, still miraculously, my own.
Never forget, for a single minute you didn't grow under my heart, but in it.

4 Funerals and...

Today Bobby, Celeste, Noah and I went to Bobby's Aunt Virginia's Funeral in Campti, Louisiana.  (LORD, send me a van please!, Millie stayed with my mother because of not enough room in the car.)  Anyway, This is the 4th funeral Noah has been to since he came home 14 months ago :(  I am big on liking to take pictures and Noah and Bobby looked so handsome and Celeste so pretty I asked Millie to take our picture before we left town.  You would not think it would be so hard to get a good shot of 4 people, when only 1 of those is a child!  LOL  Anyway, this was the best of the bunch of all of us :) 

The Sisemore's November 25, 2009  So what do you think?

I also got a very good shot of Bobby and Noah

Aren't they so handsome!? :)

It was neat to see family we have not seen since the reunion and also to meet some family Celeste, Noah and I had never met!  :)  Aunt Virginia was some lady and her funeral was a testament to the impact she made on the world.  It made me think about what things would be like at my funeral.  Have I made an impact on the world and those in my life, would folks have anything to say about me? etc  One thing to that was so neat was the comparison to the proverbs 31 woman that was made today of Aunt Virginia.  What an amazing testimony to be able to be compared to that :)  I must way I fall way short of Aunt Virginia and the proverbs 31 woman, though I do strive to be better, and have been working hard on becoming a better wife, mother, friend, homemaker, etc  Lots to think about stirred up in me tonight. 

Here are a few shots of Noah at the funeral.

Doesn't he look handsome :)  He is soooo active!  I feel like I have been in a war after this day!

We had Samuel today :)  Aren't they some handsome babies?!? :)

This is a strange but cute shot :)  heehee He pulled his legs up like that for some reason.

Thought I would share some other photos

This is Millie chowin down on an ice cream cone!  She, Noah and I had a special lunch just us one day :)

This is Noah one day when a miracle took place!  NOAH WOULD NOT EAT!  I just knew he must have been getting sick, but he didn't ever get sick.  He would not eat anything, even his favorite mac and cheese or chinese noodles.  It did not last too long and we never did find out why.

This is Celeste and Cory at the lunch out with Cory Sunday.  They were cutting up and havin fun!  We so enjoyed our lunch with him.

Here is the posed picture :) 

Celeste got very tickled!  heehee

and laughed so hard she fell out of her chair and she ended up ON THE FLOOR!  LOL

I so wish I had a bunch of pics of Jeremiah to show you as well :(  But as he is still waiting in Taiwan I can't just snap shots of him  It is so strange how you don't think what a blessing it is to be able to take whatever pics you want when you can do so whenever, but when you are waiting for another glimpse of your child an ocean away pictures take on such a new meaning.  I take so many pictures of Noah and Celeste now, it is a way to hold a place in time!  I LOVE pictures!!  Anyway, here is an older photo of Jeremiah for you to oh and aw over in place of something new.

This was one of the first pictures I ever saw of Jeremiah! :) 

Hand on frogie boy!  We love you more than you will ever know and this Thanksgiving you are one of the things we are thanking the Lord that we have!  Mamma loves you so much and I am sending extra snuggles along with my kisses in the wind tonight!

Kisses in the Wind

I hold you in my heart and touch you in my dreams.
You are here each day with me, at least that's how it seems.

I know you wonder where we are... what's taking us so long.
But remember child, I love you so and God will keep you strong.

Now go outside and feel the breeze and let it touch your skin...Because tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God hold you in His hand until I can be with you.
I promise you, my darling, I'm doing all that I can do.

Very soon, you'll have a family for real, not just pretend.But for tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God wrap you in His arms and hold you very tight.
And let the angels bring the kisses that I sent to you each night.

When Love Takes You In!
