Here is the update...

We have been pretty busy these last several weeks. I have posted several pictures and comments to give you a glimpse of what we have been up to. I had to use flickr to upload pictures because blogger was not letting me upload any pics. Hope you enjoy the pictures below.

On a more somber note, my uncle Billy (aka uncle booty) passed away last week. When I was little I guess I couldn't say "billy" and it came out as "booty". It stuck. He was a gentle, generous man who loved kids. He had a tender heart too. He had a heart transplant 5 years ago and had been having a really hard time with his health for the past year or two. I am glad that he is no longer physically suffering on this earth. My hope is that his heart was right with Jesus and I will see him on the other side of heaven. I can rest assured in God's comfort that He is full of mercy and is the perfect judge. He knew Billy's heart better than anyone else in the world and I hope I get to see him again.
Next time I go fishing I will think of my uncle Booty with a smile on my face. I hope that when my hair turns gray it looks like his did. He had the prettiest silver-gray hair I have ever seen.

I'll miss you Billy.

I'm so sorry to hear for your family's loss - and I hope your boys will grow up hearing stories about the wonderful man with silver hair... :)
Love ya!
