Keira Turns Three

Our little Keira Joy turned three years old at the end of September and I’ve been too busy to share it with everyone. We had a nice family time for her in California and then again in Pennsylvania.

This girl is such a little firecracker.

She definitely likes to push things to the limit to see how far she can take it.

She has the cutest little laugh, especially when being tickled.

Keira is very good at saying thank you.

She loves both her siblings, but acts like a little mommy with her baby brother.

This girl has a very close relationship with her thumb.

She is really funny!

We love you Keira Joy!

Missouri

What a great time we had in Missouri! The last time we visited was about 4 years ago. So it was long overdue for us to visit friends there. It was a real blast from the blast bringing back all the memories we had from our time at the training center. We had a great time with lots of friends who I didn’t get pictures of.  But you know who you are and we loved spending time with you.

Dave and Carolyn Meyers are some great people and mentors we have known since Bible school and we were able to spent some time catching up with them.

We ended up buying a van! It was a great deal from some great people!

Since we bought a van in Missouri, we were able to get our ticket money credited and not lose our money, so we could drive it back to PA to pack up before we head to Florida.  Micah and I both have aunts in Ohio, but we haven’t seen his for quite some time. We drove 11 hours in one day to get there and visit with his aunt and cousin and also her children for the evening. The next day we had just a short 5 hours to get back here to Pennsylvania.

California

We have had a very busy couple of weeks. The beginning of September we flew out to California to stay with Micah’s mom and visit friends in that area.  We only had two short weeks to see everyone, and we didn’t even get everyone in. We did love our time with all the great people we hung out with. And the kids loved playing with “new” friends they hadn’t seen in a long time.
