After 3 years of trying, our little one joined us in May of 2010. 2 years later she became a big sister! Join us as we try to grow our family and sing God's praises.

Family Picture Time
The past few years, nothing has made me feel more like a 'mom' than making my family dress up for pictures. I think it's just something that only a mother would make you do, but I have loved it. This year we had a tough time - it was super cold, we couldn't find the photographer at the right park, and the sunlight was fading quickly....AND, Macie saw the lollipop I was going to give her at the end of the photo shoot, and she pitched.a.fit. If you saw the Christmas card on a previous post, that should explain some of the tears. I think we got some good photos inspite of the tears, but I learned some lessons for next year: Take pictures before time changes so we've got more daylight to work with; Pick a place closer to our home where we are familiar so we don't have to rely on our phones to get us to the right place; let her have the lollipop sooner (or just skip the after photo treat). That being said, my girls are beautiful (brag much?) and I love being their mommy. I only pray they know Jesus from a young age.
This is an actual dress from my childhood. She calls it her 'Princess Dress'. Does that make my dress vintage?!
Only one of a few where we're all *almost* looking at the camera.
This is one happy girl. What a delight and I can't believe she's already 10 months old. I can't belive her eyes are so blue also. She's not quite taking steps, but she's highly mobile.
I love this picture. She was getting a gentle 'talking to' but the moment looks so serene, instead of the time-out I was likely threatening. But I do love it.
