Isn't this just too cute!! All of the picture in black and white except for the gold fish in color!! I LOVE IT!! Jordan Lilah Koder 9 months Jordan was so cute, she started out just looking at the fish thru the bowl, but it didn't take but a second for the action to start! The pictures tell the story, but I will give you the play by play so you will know what actually happened! :) Jordan was pointing at the fish as if to say "Look there is a fish in there!!" (Notice the water leval of this picture and notice the water leval of the rest of the photos) It is kind of hard to tell from these pictures, but the fish bowl W-A-SFULL of water...( the fourth picture shows the bowl full of water)...while Jordan was on her tummy she pulled the bowl over! Water, fish and all went everywhere, and Jordan's little outfit was soaked!! (You really can't tell from the rest of the photo's so that was good!) Her little hand went straight in the bowl and chased the fish round and round the bowl. It was just so cute! Aunt Krista, the photographer and I (Nana Blenda) laughed so hard at her! She really had a fun time with that fish....poor fish didn't know what was going on!! You can just tell she was thinking..."OK...So I will try to catch him with my other hand!! Has she given up???...NOPE...just a short rest before going back in for round two!! "Goodness...That little fish is FAST..I can't catch him"!
Bill, Blenda, & Krista took a family vacation to Navarre Beach Florida in June 2009. This is the summer before Krista's Senior year, we took Krista's boyfriend (of almost 2 years) Dillon, with us. Our plan was not only vacation but some Senior pictures too! Krista's Uncle Philip and Aunt Linda (Blenda's sister and her husband)went with us, and as you guessed it Philip was the photographer. We shared a condo on the beach for a week and took almost 500 pictures everyday for about 1 1/2 - 2 hours except for a couple of days that we took off for Destin to explore, and Gulf Shores to eat at Lamberts! We loved the condo so much that we didn't want to leave!
Most of the pictures were taken at the National Seashore. It is between Penscola Beach and Navarre Beach. It is a great place to take pictures, some of the area is still destroyed from the hurricane that wiped out Navarre Beach a few years ago. I will try to post some more of the condo and the family later. Goodness knows I have enough to pick from...

You and Peepaw just can't get enough ice cream...you both love it so much! You grunt and babble something like bite when you want more. He can't feed it to you fast enough. The little froggy cap is what Aunt Krista brought you back from Peru, you look adorable in it. Jordan Look how much you are growing! You now have a bouncy bouncy at Nana and Peepaw's house. You love to bounce in that thing...sometimes we think you are going to bounce right out of it! But you will sit in it and play forever,laughing and giggling,we just love watching you play and have so much fun!
I am a wife,(thank you Bill for putting up with me for so many years!!), A mother (who loves her children more than the world), and nana to a beautiful grandaughter, Jordan, (who is the joy and light of my life!!) I am a Christian woman who loves God and her family! I love to cook and try new recipes. These are some of our favorites! My favorite Bible verse is...Jer 29:11 (NIV)
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
