I'm so buried under Spring Cleaning that I don't have my own story, news, or projects to share, so I'll share my sister's. In brief (very brief, for more, my sister's blog is in my list - her family is wonderful, and the last couple years have been truly amazing), my second oldest niece was diagnosed with Leukemia almost two years ago. She has since been declared cancer free, and along the way she was nominated for Make A Wish. Her truest wish was for her whole family to get to go to London, but they are a large family (12 kids), and so doubted they would get that one. Well, THEY DID!!! I'm so excited for them, and not a little envious! David and I are planning our own trip to England, but not for five years - we never took a honeymoon and figure our 20 year anniversary would be a good time for a nice trip. Although I don't know if more babies are in our future, at this point our littlest will be 7 at that point (better not dwell on that! Tears will begin flowing and never stop!! Okay, smart aleck daughter just had to point out how old everyone else will be, too. Brat.). We ourselves don't have anywhere specific in mind, though it would be kind of cool to visit Highclere Castle. For the most part, we would like a non-touristy trip, but, there are touristy places to consider - Port Isaac, as we are Doc Martin fans. We have plenty of time to plan, and now will have some recommendations to consider, too! I know five years will zip by, time just does, but I get so antsy about it! I think I am almost as excited as my sister's family is about their trip. They still have a few months before they go, but I can't wait to hear all about their adventure!
These are my sister's pictures, this is my beautiful niece, Anna - her hair is growing in cute and curly!
I should point out that she doesn't really get to meet the Queen, this was just their fun way of informing the family of their exciting news!
