334 and 335/365

These pics are both iphone pics, but I am determined to complete my 365 goal so they count!

This is Lucy our Elf on the Shelf.  She is back this year and the kids LOVE her. 
Hunter even says her name "Lu" before he gets out of bed. 
They both love to look for her each morning.

Today we went with our play group to the fire station.
We had a great time.  It's hard to believe that this group started
when the "older" kids were just 6 months old.
Now they are FIVE and starting kindergarten next year.
Won't be many more of these fun Friday play dates!

family pics 2012

These are just a few of my favorite pictures from our recent photo session.

Our photographer gave us 138 pictures and told me to pick 10 
or buy all of them for just a bit more.

I bought them all.  LOVE.

And my favorite two are going on the Christmas card.  
Can't show those just yet!  : )

Hunter is "helping" me decorate for Christmas today.

thanksgiving week 2012

Luke, Abby, Samuel and Ian

The Lorhdings stayed with us Monday and Tuesday night.  
They came back for Turkey Day lunch.
Wishing them the BEST as they move to Nashville!!  

Katie and her family joined us on Wednesday.
Cousin time!!

My boys on Turkey Day!

Katie doing some cooking.

Full after lunch.

This boy melts my heart.  I can't look at him and not think about
Reese.  He is here because she is in Heaven.  That is a hard concept to even
wrap my brain around but he is a precious, happy boy. He makes
me (and more importantly my sister) smile. I love this precious
BLESSING from the Lord.  Praise be to HIM!

These pics aren't edited or really that good, but they make me laugh.

Abby was sitting there (on her dad) quietly watching a football game.
And along came Hunter.....

This is my life right now.

315 and 316/365

Thankful for family pictures.

Our photographer texted me this picture of a test shot.  
The look on Bo's face is just panic.  Makes me laugh!

Thankful for a pot of soup on my stovetop this cold, rainy afternoon.

Thankful for an amazing church and pastor.  We have been studying Galatians the 
past few months and it's been so powerful.  I am so thankful for our pastor and
all that I have been learning because of what the Holy Spirit has laid on 
his heart to share with "his people".

Thankful for M&Ms and children that are OCD like their
mother and sort them in to groups before eating them.

Thankful for my first born.  She rocked my world like no other but
