A Crazy Weekend!!

Early last Friday morning, my mom and I headed out to Holmes County, Ohio, the largest Amish community in the world. There we met my sister, Larisa, and the three of us spent the day together.

My mom and big sis (who, by the way, will be on the waitlist for her 2nd Ethiopian adoption soon!! (same agency we are using!) I am so hoping we get to travel to Ethiopia together!!)

Mom and me

We had a great Girls' Day Away together, and we're already talking about doing it again sometime!

Saturday, we got to see my sister-in-law, Cheryl, and her family who were visiting from Maryland. It was great to see them all again, and my little nephew and niece are growing like crazy!

Nathan and Cheryl (Cheryl is very creative, and has an online art magazine that you can see here.)

This is my nephew, London. He turned 2 on Saturday. Happy birthday, Londie!

Malia absolutely adores her cousin, and the feeling is quite mutual. These two had so much fun together!

Then, after lunch on Saturday, we drove out to Mansfield, Ohio, and spent the weekend with friends. I don't have any pictures of that, but we did see beautiful Fall color on the trip!

Have a great Tuesday, everyone!


  1. What beautiful pictures!! I ♥ LOVE ♥ all the colors! :) ...when I visited my Grandma in Missouri we would visit the Amish and purchase quilt squares - to create a quilt! :) Have a Happy Tuesday! :)

  2. Terrific pictures! Looks like a wonderful weekend. I love the idea of a mother/sister/daughter getaway!

  3. Have always wanted to visit an Amish community! So neat!! Looks like it was a great weekend!

  4. So great that your sister is adopting, too! What a special bond and passion that you two share.
