Indiana






The second half of our vacation was spent in Indiana. What a fantastic frenzy of family and fun! The kids hadn't seen their cousins in almost a year so it was a joyful reunion and never a dull moment. Games were played, presents were opened, movies were watched and travels were had. Aunt Lynn watched all 10 kids while the moms and dads caught a matinee one day. Nana and Papa shared their home, food and lives with our rowdy crews for a whole week, and we all came out the other end loving each other. Grandma and grandpa Ledbetter hosted gift opening and New Years cabbage and black eyed peas (health and wealth tradition). We welcomed the newest addition- Nora, with her little tuft of dark hair and bright blue eyes; she is our sweetest new niece.

We loved on each other and felt loved. Again, we're so blessed by our family. Beautiful days in Hoosier-land. Now home again in Kentucky.

Looks like you all had a great time traveling. Have you recovered yet? I hope all is well.

Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
