Words to live by...

From the fullness of His grace we have received one blessing after

Remember who you are and you will walk through life blessed and beautiful

When you reach the heart of life you shall find beauty in all things

Children are a gift from God

Never underestimate the power of prayer

Losing It!

Another milestone has been accomplished in our household...........drumroll.........that's right, our oldest has lost his first tooth! And...........his mom is (only) a month late in posting it to the blog. This tooth has been loose since the beginning of school. It seemed as though the thing was not going to come out on its own. By the time it was finally hanging (literally) by a string mom was able to convince him to pull the thing out. This happened to be while dad was out of town right before Christmas. What was a tooth fairy to do without any special coins/cash........that's right I headed to the stash of Christmas presents and withdrew a Lego watch. He seemed to fall for it, but might just be playing along.........he has mentioned to me that I am the tooth fairy.......we'll have to see about that. The permanent tooth is already nicely filling in the gap (and then some). My guess is he'll be just like his mom in needing permanent teeth pulled in the future to accomodate his compact mouth. He already has a second loose tooth next door that will be coming out fairly soon I suspect!

Hope all our friends/family are having a happy/healthy new year! Wish I MADE the time to update the blog more frequently. Seems these kiddos are just keeping us busier by the week :) It does feel nice to have Christmas behind us and a few 'slower' months ahead of us. I've been less busy with photography sessions which has given me more time to get a few minor projects/organizational tasks/crafts done around the house. I would also like to make the time to take up running again..........such a love/hate relationship with that hobby :)

Stay tuned..........or follow me on facebook......until next time!
