My Angel

Written by Paul Dammann

God sent to me an angel,
it had a broken wing.
I bent my head and wondered
"How could God do such a thing?"

When I asked the Father
why He sent this child to me,
the answer was forthcoming,
He said "Listen and you'll see."

"My children are all precious,
and none is like the rest.
Each one to me is special,
and the least is as the best.

I send each one from Heaven
and I place it in the care
of those who know my mercy,
those with love to spare.

Sometimes I take them back again.
Sometimes I let them stay.
No matter what may happen
I am never far away.

So if you find an angel
and you don't know what to do,
remember, I am with you,
love is all I ask of you."

Lots Of Pictures Of My Favorite Kiddos

We had the most amazing weekend. The weather was perfect. The Fall colors were breathtaking, and we were able to spend some much needed time with family. Between Blair's sister and us we have 7 munchkins, 6 boys, and little Kaitlyn. It is difficult to find time to get together, life is crazy busy and they live 3 hours North of us.

The big boys spent 2 days outdoors. They had a blast.

Bryce is getting so big. His looks are changing and he is looking more and more grown up.

This little guy is my 20 month old nephew. He is at such a fun age and is so comical.
(and absolutely adorable)
Below is a picture of Blair's mom and dad. Last Sunday they celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary on 10.10.10.
How cool!

Below is my little beauty Ms. Kaitlyn.
She LOVED being outside.
She even learned to climb the steps on the deck. So proud of her!
The big boys had a chance to go canoeing. It was the first time for Brady and Bryce. They really liked it. From shore I could hear Bryce saying, "Ummmm...Uncle Dan, it feels kinda tippy." (smile)
Another nephew, he is 4 weeks younger than Bryce.
To be honest they fought like cats and dogs. =) They are too much alike.
I love this picture of him.
The brave uncle taking the four bigs on a canoe ride.

My oldest nephew, the comedian of the group.
He is so witty and really funny. I can't believe he is 8 years old already.

An adorable baby and his beautiful Mommy.

Grandpa and Bryce enjoying a quiet moment.
It was so peaceful up there.
Me and my favorite little girl.

The boys played outside games all weekend. Brady learned to hit a baseball. He was so proud of himself as were we. He put in a lot of hard work, he was glowing.

The littlest babe.
Ty spent most of his time indoors being snuggled by one of us.
Caramel apples, yum!

Beautiful baby!

So relaxed!


My baby girl!


Grandma & Grandpa
