Jordan's first bad dream

At least the first bad dream that she could communicate about.

I woke up around 3:45 last night to Jordan screaming. When I got to her, she held her hands out and said, "Hold you, hold you" and then began saying, "Opent (elephant)." I asked her if she had a dream about elephants and she said yes. After rocking, I tried to put her back to bed and she looked all around and held her hands up asking, "Opent?" (like, where's the elephant?) I told her the elephant was all gone, so she agreed and said, "opent all gone." So I tucked her back into bed, but she quickly got scared again and called for me. So, when I went back into her room, she kept saying that she wanted to sleep with me. I turned the light on and showed her there were no elephants, but she was still so scared she was actually trembling, so I let her sleep in bed with Justin and I. We laid down and she wrapped her arms tightly around my neck and said, "hold you," and then she fell asleep with her face smashed up against mine. Poor girl!

I'm just testing to see how pictures will upload using my new updated software program on my computer. It's working nicely. I took these pictures in Iowa over Clio Festival weekend.
I doctored the purple flowers to see what my computer could do. These flowers are from Mom's garden.

Family Pictures

Our friend, Ian, from our church took our family pictures a couple weekends ago. Here are a few of my favorites! I think he did a great job.
