Visiting the Hong Sisters

Okay, so their last names are not Hong anymore but they were once the Hong sisters.  Who am I talking about?  Julie Chin and Joan Shim of course.  I had the joy of visiting these dear sisters last week.  Both Julie and Joan have been godly examples to me for many years so it was so sweet to see God’s blessings in their lives.  First of all we were able to visit Julie along with Kellee, Susan, and Isabella.  Julie was such an amazing host to us!  She made us a delicious meal, complete with the yummiest strawberry shortcake.

It was so neat to see her at home, being an excellent homemaker and serving us joyfully.  We had fun catching up, cracking jokes, and eating yummy food of course.

The four of us have been friends for many years now and I’m so thankful for their presence in my life.

Isabella and Caden had fun too.  As you can see Isabella loves Minnie Mouse.

Caden had an especially good time with Auntie Kellee that day.  She made him laugh hysterically, tried to feed him a cookie, had him balancing oranges, and she insisted that he work out with the exercise ball.

Could it be because his legs look like this?

Or because he has rolls like this?  By the way, he dropped Sophie and caught her with his feet!  Haha!

Kellee and I were also able to visit Joan, Dale, and baby Isaac.  We know that he is truly a precious gift from the Lord and we were sooo excited to meet him.

Isaac is such a handsome little guy.  Seriously, this 2 week old has rock star hair.

The proud parents.

Proud aunties with Mama Shim.

Even though I had Caden less than 6 months ago, it felt so strange to hold a newborn baby.  I had forgotten how tiny they are!  It just reminded me again about the miracle of having a child.  It was so sweet to see the Shims as parents, enjoying the blessing of God’s gift to them.  Congratulations again guys!
