Our Latest Trip to Amarillo

We just returned from a visit in Amarillo. We needed to meet little Laney Kate Black, born April 21, 2010 to Kit and Ashley and big brother, Foster. She's the most active baby I've ever seen. She's always moving! Isn't she adorable?

Foster is busy, busy. We played and played and played. He is so cute! He and his mom, Ashley, decorated cupcakes one afternoon. (I was the designated photographer.) He carefully got his cupcake decorated JUST RIGHT, then immediately went to the table and ate all the decorations off the top. Of course, he had his napkin on the ready. Cute, cute, cute!

A couple of Christmases ago, I had given Kit and Ashley digital cameras. They didn't perform too well and ended up in a drawer. Foster got one out while I was there and played with it for hours. He took a lot of photos of his eye! The flash didn't seem to bother him. I would have been seeing spots for days!! We went through 3 sets of AA batteries, but we had a wonderful time. By the end of the day, he was "looking in the little window" and taking some pretty good photos.

Kit found my old keyboard in a closet and Foster has been playing with it. He performed quite a while, but I was lucky enough to get part of one song on video:

We had a wonderful visit!

Maxey played in a golf tournament with his friend, Mel, and came in 7th...in the money.

So that we wouldn't be in Kit and Ashley's way with all the busyness involved in having a new baby at home, we stayed with Jimmy and Judy McAnarney each evening. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with them! We ate wonderful meals and played lots of Wii. Playing Wii was a new experience for Maxey and me. That is an amazing game. What technology!! And what fun!!

Sunday, we visited our old church for the first time since we moved away. Wow! It was overwhelming the welcome we received. It still brings tears to my eyes when I think about it.

God is SO GOOD! We had a wonderful trip!
