Silly Family Pics

Cost for the new boots--$$$
Cost for the hat and coat--$$
Cost for the sled--$
Expression on the sleigh ride--priceless

I just like this picture because I think my legs look skinny.

Andy kept saying he didn't know what to do with his hands. I don't know if I should laugh or be worried that his expression is so complacent with his hands around my neck.

The Boy needed a little tickling "encouragement" to get his smile going.

I guess Andy thought I needed some "encouragement" also.

Family Pics

These are a few of my favorites, Andy may have different picks. Honestly they are all so good it's hard to pick. I have so many. Looking through all of them I have an overwhelming love for my family. I am SO blessed. So many people are suffering and experiencing devastating trials, but I am calmed knowing that we are healthy, have a roof over our heads, and a way to provide for ourselves. We are so blessed! There is no way God is oblivious to our situation or isn't there at all. God is there--here. Everything around me increases my realization that He loves me and knows me and blesses me.

Thanks Britt these pics are great!

Robert and Cutter

We had our friends Jake and Brittany over for dinner the other night. The boys were down playing and when we peaked in on them they were sitting side by side on the cars pushing buttons and both in their own little world. Of course as soon as I got the camera Robert got up and didn't want to sit still. But it was so cute they were both so intent on their buttons and lights and music.

Olive Fingers

Robert loved having the olives on his fingers.  He loved eating them off of his fingers.  He loved spitting them back out before swallowing any of it.  He was frustrated trying put the olives back on his fingers.  And it was all so much fun to watch. We took them off, put them back on, took them off, put them back on. One of the things I loved about my Grandma Stinger was she always had olives-only we had to eat them. She wouldn't let us waste any. Since this was his first time we'll let it slide this time.
