Festival Memories

Melanie and David - The Irish Duo performing a lovely melody at the festival

My favorite past-time ~ singing with my family!
(my dad, me, sister-Melissa, David, sister-Melanie, my mom, and brother-Matt)

Just like old times - boy, do I miss it!

The Family Music Festival was wonderful this year - so many friends and great music! I'll have to post more photos when I get a chance. These past few weeks have been so incredibly busy - I can't wait to share with you what has been happening...super exciting news!
Well, tonight we said good-bye to Melanie and David - they leave in the morning to return home to Ireland. Hard to see them go. So hard to say goodbye - especially knowing there will be a precious baby born to them in a few short weeks (5 to be exact!). But happy all the same knowing the blessings of the Lord are upon them. Wish I could be there to welcome their baby into this world; just as Melanie was with me for my first two babies. Someday soon I hope to make the journey so I can kiss the face of my new little neice or nephew...and join Melanie in singing lullabies to her baby!

The festival was really so much fun! I loved seeing your family up there playing and the new additions were great! ;)
I finally posted the pictures you asked for of my apron on our blog now!
Hope to see you soon!

That looks like lots of fun! I wish I could have gone but other duties called, maybe next year!

Oh Mindy! You make me cry! I can hardly wait for you to come for a visit sometime. I miss you so much already!
