When my friend mentioned she was looking for places to brag about her family, I jumped at the chance to have her as a guest blogger here at Over The Backyard Fence and Lavada was generous enough to give us one of her blog dates. You see, I had seen the pictures you’re about to see and they tugged at my heart strings. So without further, ado, let me introduce our guest blogger today, Janette Harjo. I know Janette from my local author’s group. I won’t go into her story in depth, but I’m aware she’s had to overcome some significant obstacles in her walk through life. She works hard to further her career as a writer and has, within the last couple years, received her degree from the University of Washington. That she does it all with a smile is an inspiration to me. Of course, with a family like this, it’s hard not to smile, right Janette?
My son just got married to a very Precious Lady who brought a new Favorite Grandbaby in the Whole World into my life! All my Grandbabies are my Favorites in the Whole World and now I have THREE!! Litttle Avalon is 2 and a 1/2 and she was a part of their April 16, 2011 wedding ceremony.
She was a member of their wedding party and this picture is so dear to my heart because when the minister asked my son and his bride to join hands, my little Avi reached up to join hands with them. To me it signified her part in the beginning of their happy little family.
My thanks to Cashman Photography for capturing this perfect moment for us.
