Eli and Layla Finally Meet!

I just have to share a wonderful blessing!

My sweet Eli finally got to meet his “lady love”, Layla in real life!




Actually, all of my boys got to meet Layla AND Kevin!



They were thrilled!  Since my boys have heard about Layla and Kevin for over three years now, it was surreal for them to meet them in real life!

Jonathan was especially excited about meeting Kevin since they share the same passion for music.


Kevin has been such a great encouragement to Jonathan with his singing.  He was on cloud nine after meeting him.

We got to hang out, talk a bit, and act a little silly!  Cy was there too, but somehow didn’t make it in a picture.  boo. Sad smile


We can’t wait until Kevin and Layla come up to Kentucky to hang out with us soon.

It was an awesome day!



Although I know one little man that didn’t want to say goodbye…

As Layla and Kevin were leaving, Eli shouted to Layla, “I love your pretty heart!”
