These Girls Warm My Heart

As I was looking through my pictures this morning, I came across these, and they just made my day. They definitely warmed my heart on this COLD day in Vienna! I miss these girls so much. They are my nieces; Savannah, Preslie and Lilly. They are just growing up so big and sometimes I really get sad that I am missing it!

Aren't they the cutest dolls that you have ever seen, of course I am biased.

And I couldn't forget about this handsome guy! Paxton my nephew... He is a wrestling stud!

He just won a wrestling match. He's such a great wrestler!
Here he is with my step sis Kim (his mom).

Isn't she beautiful!

Also I wanted to add that one year ago yesterday was the day my step dad had his stroke. With many amazing prayers from family, family friends and complete strangers he's doing so much better today. He is still struggling with his speech, but walking, and gradually getting better on a daily basis. What is incredible is he was given a 3% chance to live the first night of being in the ICU. And now he's back on his feet, going to work a little here and there and slowly getting back to the old Steve.

God is Good!
Happy Wednesday!

Paxton is a champion name. Way to rock it.

And Amen (and "all the time!")

Those little girls are so cute.
I remember snapping a couple of pictures of them too. I thought that was adorable of them sitting with their feet in the pool while they were all dressed up.

The reception was beautiful and so much fun.

I'm glad your step-dad is doing so well. God is good!

Have a great day & stay warm!

Your neices look too cute sitting at the pool.
Congrats to your nephew! I love elementary and high school wrestling. It's so fast and action packed. It takes alot of dedication to participate in it too.

What beautiful, beautiful girls! You have a precious family! What an awesome story about your step dad. I am glad that he is doing so well!!

I got caught up on your posts and can I say you got some great pictures and you guys are experiencing some amazing things. Let me just tell you that the Hollywild Zoo here at home pales in comparison to the Viena Zoo! My girls would love that place!!

Hope you week is going well :)

OK... so this is weird.. I think the first time you commented on my blog you said you thought you knew me or we knew the same people... I know Kim, and Paxton, and Preslee. Paxton goes to the same school as the Drama Queen... they had a little crush on each other a few years ago! They re-districted and Paxton goes to a different school now... if you look at one of my Oct post, I think there is a pic of Kim at an adult Halloween party! Crazy!
