Soooo Cooooool!

I love this photo. Our sweet friend, Heather, sent this to us. She said it reminded her of Jordan, our little fireman.This is the prettiest ice sculpture I have ever seen!
Isn't it just perfect and so beautiful? It just took my breath away!!

Fiona is doing fine. Duhgall is adjusting and loving having a little sister around to pull on his "manly" beard. Some of you have asked if she is doing good on potty training and YES she is! I think a little angel is whispering in her ear something like this, "Hey, you better be good and do what mom says!"


Please keep or sweet friend KIM (Daisy Cottage) in your prayers. Her mother's husband, Dan, is ill and just suffered a stroke. I know that so many of you LOVE our Kim and just keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers.

Love to you!
added on March 8th: a sweet friend of mine, who just happens to be an expert in finding facts on google, sent me the link to the information on this amazing ice sculpture. I will also be adding the music that goes along with THAT post to THIS post. XXXX my dear friend ~~ YOU know who YOU are!!! ((((hugs))))
*** There really ARE angels among us and they are YOU!!! ***
For all of YOU who care for our family and who send prayers to Heaven for us.

Wow I had to do a double take of that photo. I thought it was your boy and then I realized it was a sculpture. Amazing. I can imagine how that must have touched you very deeply. I'm learning God is Good in every way every day. Blessings to you and your family.

What an amazing picture. Is it all an ice sculpture? I have never seen anything like it before.

I'm glad Miss Fiona's potty training is going well.

The ice sculpture is amazingly beautiful. I can see why it touched you. People love you and your family, Becky.
I smiled when I read about the potty training of your little one. I remember teaching Mele and how much patience it takes. How sweet puppies are. They have such a way of creeping into our hearts and warming us.
Take good care, Becky.
Your friend,
Mona

Becky,

That is a very artistic ice sculpture, unfortunatly, they aren't made to last! :-(

I know Dughall will do well in the future wit Fiona, it's like the first born child making way for the second~trying to spread that love around, but not sure. But it sounds like you have that overflowing in your home!!

Hi! Nice to meet you.
That really is a special snow sculpture.
Miss Socks is my favourite - love cats.

I enjoyed the walk through your neeighbourhood too.

lorhen82 said...

Becky, that ice sculpture is so amazing and moving. I know how much you must miss your beautiful son, but I also know that you take comfort in knowing that he's in a place now that doesn't have a trace of the ugliness that can be so much a part of this world we still live in. I lost my father about a month ago, and I know what that loss can feel like. But at the same time, I celebrate for him in his new life.
God bless you and your family!

What a wonderful sculpture! It was such a nice gesture for someone to send that to you. I know it touched your heart. You give Fiona a big hug for me and tell Doogs he's a good boy for letting her join the family. Kim's family is in my prayers, as are you every single day.
Love you!
