WOW!! It has been EIGHT months or so since we last posted.....time has certainly flown by!! If you have kept up with us on Facebook there is no real news to tell, if you have not, you should!! 
We post stats and photos often on FB, I personally keep up with work for Penn Place Designs on FB, as clients are updated with news and information either on the PPD wall or by inbox messages. The job is going very well and I am quite pleased with the results thus far. I love making people happy!
Greg's job is running smoothly, though like all jobs, a bit stressful at times. We appreciate all that God has done, is doing and what He will do in the future to provide for our little family. We continue to lean on Him for the upcoming days. God is good!
Alyson's first year of Pre-K is going wonderfully and she is very excited to enter "real" school next year!! The school and teachers have been all we prayed for this year and have far exceeded our hopes with hard work and a lot of love. Go Chargers!
We will not BLOG as often in the future, as we have in the past, but we will do outr best to post a couple of times a year.....and  hope to see or hear from you on Facebook: Shelly N Greg Penn
Trust you will have a lovely day and take time to enjoy God's goodness during this, one of His most beautiful of seasons, SPRING!

Summer's Drawing to a Close!

Let the photos and captions speak for themselves...we have truly enjoyed the last couple of weeks and are very thankful to have been able to spend time together as a family and in the presence of  family and friends!!! Our End of the Summer/Back to School family vacation was a ton of fun, Alyson began school last week (turns out she's in  love with every moment spent there), and Greg's "extended" weekend-long Birthday celebration was filled with memories to last a life time!  We are looking forward to seeing what else God has in store for us as Fall arrives! We are blessed beyond belief!!!

Happy Anniversary 2012 and Blessed Memories of the Past

Greg and I were thrilled to celebrate yet another Anniversary this month, on July 24th and due to an extremely busy schedule, we postponed our celebration until the first weekend of August. On Friday evening, we had fun spending our gift cards on a lovely dinner out, stopping by for dessert on the way home.....alone, being as Aly was at one of her infamous sleep-overs! (Thank you, Uncle Mark and Aunt 'Nita for being such a wonderful host/hostess' and another thank you to Ms. Cassie for adding to the mix.....Aly had a ball!) The next morning, we relaxed, took a "Sunday-afternoon-drive" on Saturday and simply took time to enjoy each others company! We have a couple of photos taken over the weekend and decided to add a few of our favorite past Anniversary "memories" to the album, as well! (Remember, you can left-click on the center of the slideshow to be taken to larger still-shots of the photos!) Happy Anniversary to us and we pray the Lord will send us many more!

The Beginnings of Summer
The past month has been FULL to say the least...Mother's Day, Staycation, Pool Days and more!!! It has come to our attention that we did not post a Mother's Day Album on this site (which we were blessed to have spent with the Indiana family), so we are going to add a few pictures from that day to an Album we will call "The Beginnings of Summer"!!! 
Our busy schedule has included, Memorial Day with the Ohio family (AKA: A 75th Anniversary Celebration for Mamaw and Papaw J.), we also enjoyed "Date Night" (while Aly had a "sleep ova" at Mimi and Papaw's), the Staycation (which was already mentioned), an afternoon at Uncle Bill's Pet Center and the list goes on and on!!! 
We're looking forward to the month of June...well, we would be more honest if we said, we're excited for the entire Summer!!! There is company coming in from Louisiana next week, Father's Day right around the corner, also Wesley will be state-side in July and once again, the list goes on and on!!! 
We would like to take a moment and wish all of you the most wonderful sure to stop and smell the daisies, chill out with your loved ones and enjoy the small things in life!!! HAPPY SUMMER!!!
