A most AMAZING day!!!

We had the most AMAZING day this past Friday! Our not-so-little guy's tennis coach is also a certified pilot and flight instructor...Casey asked us if we'd like to go flying with him sometime. Of course, we jumped at the chance and Friday was our lucky day!!! I've flown infinite times commercial, but I've never flown in a small puddle jumper. To say that it was AWESOME is one of the biggest understatements of my life! God NEVER ceases to find ways to take my breath away!!!!!
Because of our location (right on the Atlantic Ocean in Florida), it made the flight that much more incredible. The ocean was a perfect turquoise and not a cloud in the sky - breath-taking doesn't begin to describe the experience!!!
Of course, we had to find our house (it's here in the pics, believe me! lol) and the tennis courts that we love to play on most often.(they're here too!Check the last pic for the courts!) :)
I just had to share the pics and experience with you.  I can't wait to fly again - we'll be pestering his coach more about flying than tennis (NEVER thought I'd say that!!!) :)
Do something AMAZING SOON!!!!

First finish of '09...

Happy New Year!!! What a fun day this has been...we started out playing tennis this morning, and I'm ending my day with watching football and stitching! I just put the last few stitches in on this piece. I'm off to a great start!! :) The other pic is a progress shot of my Heart in Hand Inspiration series. I haven't had much stitching time lately (the holidays were BUSY!!!), but I'm looking forward to settling down a bit and stitching more.
BTW - Santa brought me a gift certificate for a stitching floor stand and some stitching stash! Woo-Hoo!! :) I'm looking forward to trolling the 'net and going on a shopping spree!!! ('Course I ought to finish some pieces from the stash that I already have before I add anything new - yea, like that's going to happen - NOT!!) :)
Well, it's time for me to head back to the pizza and football -
May you each be blessed with family, faith, laughter and love.....
