"To bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." Isaiah 61:3

Stayin' Inn....

Bella (& her family) had a respite from the extreme cold weather...We had a gift certificate to a hotel, so decided to take a little trip with Grandma & Grandpa to celebrate a late Christmas with my brother Joe and his wife Brenda. They couldn't make it home for Christmas because of the big blizzard.

Bella loved the swimming pool and getting to sleep in the little blow-up bed. However, she really just loved having all of us in one big room (maybe it reminded her of the orphanage) :)


  1. Looks like the girls enjoyed the swimming! I'm sure it was fun in Bismarck. We miss you guys!

  2. Hey, looks like fun!!! Can I come next time??

  3. That sounds like a fun trip!

    I just love your new header photo of the two sisters. So adorable!
