Pictures and prayers


No more custom orders, well, almost none! I have only two left to complete that I have committed too and then I am scott free!

See what I have been up to here. There are a few missing still but they are on the camera still sooo.....you know.

I feel like a burden is being lifted with them in a strange way. Even though I love to paint I am excited to dig back out the sewing machine, it has been nearly a year!

So how about something light tonight!

Pictures of our offspring's will do?

OK!



Going way back to batches of photos that have been sitting around for a month.
We like to dress up here, no occasion needed!


We also like to crank the tunes and get our groove on!
You know this though.


We also like to snuggle.


And hang out.


And we really like babies.


How can we not!


He is the happiest baby ever!!


Never cries....unless he hasn't eaten for hours and then it is a whimper as he waits and then he will just suck his hand.


But even then he is distracted easily by a smile.

Oh, and on the news front.....he cut his first tooth today!!!


And of course he is always getting loved...


by a few certain other little people.




Now if we ever get bored then of course there is entertainment, thank you E-man!


Or there are crafts to work on with friends.


This was part of our memory tribute for our little day of the dead get together.


And if all else fails we paint.


And then sometimes I have to sit back and just look at my little life. OK, more like go back through my archives here, but same thing. I am so grateful. And blessed. Sometimes we don't realize how much we really have until we step back and look. I should never complain!
(smacking myself upside the head now) However I sure have my moments where I feel like I am going to explode. They are far outweighed by the awe moments though.


I want to remember these moments. All of em. For ever!


Cause they go by so fast! They put what really matters into perspective!


I can hardly remember what it was like to hold Kaitlyn as a baby and now we are working through workbooks and puzzles. And discussing why it is NOT ok to swear!



And Ethan is showing his independence and watching him try to be brave is the most precious thing.
Ahhhh, motherhood and the crazy moments we get to see and commit to our hearts and memory banks = priceless!

Now on a very serious side note I have a relative who is extremely ill. Clinging to life with little hope and she is in her early twenties. She needs desperate and fervent prayer!
Here is a link to read a little more. There are more complications too but this will give you a little info. Any prayer is appreciated. She is one sweet girl.

Thank you!

I love your posts, no matter what you write. Your family is so beautfiful, and I really just love how sweet and chubby Hudson is! My thoughts are with your niece, too, I can't imagine the fear.

What a good reminder that life is so precious and is better spent appreciating what we have rather than dwelling on what we don't.

I need to work on this!

Love the pictures! The kids are so sweet. We definitely have so much to be thankful for.

I will keep your relative in my prayers.

GORGEOUS photos!! Anna, your kids are just the cutest! Well, aside from my own of course, LOL :-)
I love all the photos of Hudson, he just seems to have grown up so much in the last little while. I LOVE this age in babies!

I will send some prayers up for your niece xx

The pictures of Hudson don't do that smile justice! Makes me so happy just to think of our visit and his AMAZING smile!
