    SEM Blog Hop


    Welcome friends to Scrapping Everyday Miracles September Blog hop!!!
    1 John 4:7 “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.” (NIV)

    One of the biggest blessings is to see my daughter being friends with the children of my friends.  I am so close to my friends and wondered many times before my friends and I had kids... if our kids  would be as good of friends as we are.  Only time will tell if Karianne will stay close to her friends but for now it is such a wonderful blessing from God.  In the layout I used two pictures of Karianne and her friend Fredrick which happens to be our neighbors son... they are great friends... Karianne says when she gets big Fredrick is going to be her prince and they will get married.  I couldnt think of anything better...heehee!
