Dana, Brad & Leila

Sweet, sweet leila!  With my house full of boys i just love having nieces!   This little 6-month old cutie is amazing.  Leila’s hair, her wide smile, her sweet sweet disposition all remind me of my amazing sister, Dana.   Dana and Brad have lived in China for the past 2 years.  They’ve been coming back to the US during the summer to take a teaching break between school terms and to visit with family and friends.  We have LOVED our time together.  I asked my boys about Dana and Brad after they left our house on Sunday.

Best thing about Dana:

Miles – One best thing is SO hard because there are so many!   {so sweet, so true}

Noah:  The best thing about Dana is that she loves  me.     {this made me instantly cry}

Griffin gladly said, “me too!  that Aunt Dana loves me!”

Best thing about Uncle Brad:

Miles:  He says funny comments!  {pretty sure he laughed as he was saying it…thinking of funny brad things}

Noah: He loves me.  {said with the widest, sweetest smile on his face}

Griffin:  Jokes!

I know this next one is so similar to the one above it, but I just love how these two are super smiling and gazing at each other.  It makes me teary thinking about the special bond they already have and all that they will share throughout their lives as mother/daughter.

Dana and Brad, we love you so very much!  We are blessed to share our lives with you and call you family!
