Favorite Photo Friday

My favorite photo this week goes back to when the girls were little. 
I think this is one of my all time favorites of them together.
Sydney had only been home about 5 months and already the bond between them could be seen.
The sweetness in the way they are looking at each other……

I pray that they always look at each other with the same love and sweetness.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Happy 13th Birthday to Our Sweet Baby Girl!

If I think too hard about this I will start crying so I am doing this fast!

How can it be that the cute, sweet little baby that we first held in our arms almost 13 yrs ago in an orphanage in Russia is now an amazing young lady?


I knew this day was coming but I kept trying to deny it was actually happening.  But on this day I can not deny it.  She is 13!

Samie has been the easiest child to parent.  Now she has her moments, but even they are mild.  She is kind, loving, intelligent, out going, athletic, a leader, a great big sister to Sydney and an awesome role model.

This girl is my heart, my faith, my joy.  She has her Daddy wrapped around all TEN of her fingers and has since that first day when he held her up and she drooled on him….right in his face!  Truth be told I’m kind of wrapped too.  But we won’t tell her that.



We love you and pray that this is an amazing year for you.

Such Sweetness

On the morning of August 17th we welcomed into the world

Shane Michael Creech, Junior

Shane Jr florabella lullaby blog

All 8 lbs 12.8 ozs and 21 1/4 inches of him

Shane Junior is Tim’s son Shane and his wife Sara’s first child.  Shane is serving in Afghanistan and will not be home until February.  Junior was not expected for a few more weeks so he was a very pleasant surprise.  Sara told the Dr she was NOT having a baby today and the Dr told her “Oh yes you ARE!” 

I brought my camera to take pictures of him and was very surprised and honored to be asked to go into the delivery room and take photos immediately after his birth.  He was so alert!  The pictures of him with his eyes open are so stinkin cute.  It was as if he was trying to take it all in.  Then the crying would start again as if to say “Put me back!”

Sara and Junior both had complications and needed to stay in the hospital a few extra days.  We are very thankful that they are home and doing great!  Singing His Praises!

Yes he is being called Junior.  Of course his Daddy is Shane, then Sara has a brother Shane.  So Junior it is.  Or Pork Chop if you are his Aunt Heather!

We are blessed with three other grandchildren also.  Tim’s daughter, Susan, has 3 children- Adison, Evan and Juliet-who shares her birthday now with Shane Jr.  They live in California and we unfortunately do not get to see them like we would love to.  Hopefully we will get to see them in the Spring!

Sydney is in love with her newest nephew and constantly asks about him.  I did not get any pics of her holding him because I was hovering and making sure he stayed in her arms!  Have to get some of her next time.

Welcome to the world Shane Michael Creech, Jr.
