Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

Boston Farewell BBQ

The weekend before we left Boston our good friends threw us a Farewell BBQ.  It was such a wonderful evening seeing the great friends we have made and having a chance to hug necks and say goodbye.  As I looked back on the pictures I was reminded of what a precious year that was in our lives and how very thankful I am for the relationships we built while living there.  Truly a gift!

My precious friend Christine who at the time was 9 months pregnant.  She now has a beautiful baby boy named Tate.

Miller riding the bike with Poppy. Miller L.O.V.E.S Poppy and still talks about her. Both he and Austin wanted to name our baby girl Poppy after this precious little girl. I think we may have a match for the future.

I had to put all the pictures because they truly make me smile. He truly loves her. IMG_7404
I love the look on Miller's face in this next picture...its like he's saying, "Look at me and Poppy together!"

Love this picture of the big boys holding their little siblings. Don't mind the dirt on our kids faces, they literally played in dirt the entire time we were there. IMG_7396
Such a wonderful night. We were given such precious gifts before we left as well. A scrapbook for the boys and a scrapbook for me with handwritten letters from the ladies in my bible study and playgroup. We were also given an awesome art print of Boston. We can't wait to frame that for our house.

I miss these ladies and their children.  I can't wait to visit Boston again soon!
