I Have A Dream

I have a dream, 
People won’t fight any more.
I have a dream, 
There will be no war.

I have a dream, 
We’ll all work together
I have a dream, 
The Earth will last forever

I have a dream, 
All creeds and tongues 
will see eye to eye till the work is done

I have a dream,
We will see  others worth.
I have a dream, 
There is Peace on Earth.

-Heidi Lamb Castle
For Elias Lamb Castle

Elias was asked to recite a poem at University of Minnesota this month in conjunction with  Martin Luther King Day and Black History month.  I wrote this piece for him.

Celebrating TWO years of Ruby Catherine

A little play time before bed... on the Eve of her 2nd Birthday.
Ruby loves this guy almost as much as I do... which is A LOT!

17 January 2012~  2 Years old today~
Picture taken the morning of her 2nd birthday~

When we streach her hair straight it goes down to the middle of her back.
It is thick full and curly~
Thank goodness for Nette for all her wisdom and help!
Sade Catherine, we love you.  We remember you every day,  but especially today.
The gift you gave us is priceless, a treasure we cherish.
Thank you for your sacrifice.
God Bless you now,
and always.

Happy Birthday to Grandma Wendy too!

Almost 1 year~

About 15 months

Little sack of sugar I could eat you up!

Take note of the doll-   Ruby makes sure she is going potty too.

I love Elias's reaction as Ruby pushes him around. 

Ruby loves pushing Elias o her new riding toy.

Ruby and Elias 

Elias and our friend Holly

It is hard to believe she is almost 2 years old.

Ruby loves our dog Honey... Honey puts up with Ruby nicely. 

Honey really is the best dog ever

I love this cat.  So much.   He is our family therapist, our entertainment, and my mid-life motherhood fulfillment.  And he is naughty... ...
