"VHHHHHT!!" that was time you just heard whizzing by.  
I hear that sound constantly and recently I've been getting updates and photos from friends and family about the goings on in their life and I just can't believe where the heck all the time has gone and that this year is almost over! It's 4 months and 3 weeks until Christmas for goodness sakes! My inside voice just told me to "Suck it up buttercup! you can't make time stand still!" ((sigh))

So here's some photos of the life that is passing on by.....
Our nephew is now 4 months old!
Our niece will be 4 yrs old in September.
Welcome baby Klara! born July 17th.  The second child of friends, Samara and Geert
Sebastian will be 3 years old in December! Samara and Geert's first born.
Where's the little baby girl I cuddled in my arms? Our niece is 13 now!
Our nephew is off to University in two years! 

Louis turns 2 in September, wasn't I just in Germany celebrating his 1st birthday?
My godson turns 14 in November.... wasn't I just at the hospital holding you they day you were born?

A portion of the lyrics for "Time Stands Still" by RUSH

Make each impression, a little bit stronger
Freeze this motion a little bit longer
The innocence slips away
The innocence slips away...

Time stands still
Time stands still

I'm not looking back
But I want to look around me now
See more of the people and the places that surround me now
Time stands still

Summer's going fast, nights growing colder
Children growing up, old friends growing older
Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each sensation a little bit stronger
Experience slips away
Experience slips away...
The innocence slips away.
