Beautiful Beaukiss...

I can't begin to number the reasons I love this place...more than anything else, it's the beautiful people that call it home. Thank you all for loving us so and for being so hard to leave...the harder it is to go, the sweeter it will be to return.
I love you all  more than coconut cream shave ice...more than Luby's fried fish...more than Claussen pickles...more than Harry Potter...more than Ben Hur...more than The Judds Sing Christmas...more than Everlasting Gobstoppers...
For those of you reading this that aren't catching my obscure means I love 'em a lot.

Here are a few shots of our time in Beaukiss...

A Day At Peggy's

We are so thankful we got the chance to catch up with Dustin's family today. The girls are all growing like weeds -- the prettiest little weeds you've ever seen, anyway. Here are a few photos from our day at Peggy's.
