5 days in Arkansas


On November 15th, my hubby and son drove me to the airport where I boarded a plane to Chicago.  Then from Chicago I boarded another plane to Arkansas, where at the bottom of the escalator stood my beautiful daughter, Kimberly, and her daughter (my grandbaby girl!) Reagan.  My heart skipped a beat as I saw my daughter Kim, for the first time in years since her marriage, and Reagan for the first time since her birth.  She is 14 months old and full of sweetness and everything wonderful about having daughters.

We drove around a host of communities on the way home so that I could get a feel for the place that they now call home in Arkansas.  It is beautiful there.


I sat in the back with Reagan and took pictures of the most precious baby girl ever.  Reagan has the biggest sky blue eyes I have ever seen ...


with a host of snowflakes in her iris that sparkled every time she smiles.


or even when she doesn't.


The most precious baby hands are Reagan's.  I have a thing for a baby's hands, but Reagans are perfect.


We should all be so lucky as Elmo to be cuddled up next to that perfect, slightly pudgy, perfectly manicured baby girl's hand.


And check out these stylish shoes!  When I arrived, Reagan had taken only a handful of steps, and by the time I left on the 20th...


she was practically running from room to room.


This was the best trip, and I really needed to get away for a few days.  Still, seeing Kim, Reagan, and Zak was a wonderful reminder of just how important family is to me.


A reminder of just how important my children are to me.


And my grandchildren.


And how blessed I am to have such a precious, pink, and pearly granddaughter like Reagan.
