Our fave place.
They’re building a house on this field now, which makes me very, very sad.
Mikey, being a capable photographer in her own right, went out and shot Paige tonight. It’s interesting to see the lighting and posing from a teenage perspective.
The trip this year had a few unexpected surprises.
And just like that…he’s four.
It’s important to remember the past with those who shaped it and to pass that priceless heritage along to your own children.
We explored Ha Ha Tonka with Grandma and Grandpa after filling up on turkey.
I blinked and she was grown up.
I. Love. This. So. Much.
Yes, we've moved. We are going to miss our Clarksville friends immensely. In fact, Austin's face captures the collective emotion of the family leaving Tennessee. But alas, we are now in Missouri and settling in.
It is always humbling and awe-inspiring to reflect on how the Lord has provided for us...and me personally, over the years. I am in no way worthy of the grace and forgiveness He bestows upon me time and time again and yet ... He does. He always does.
We always get there early. The calm before the storm. We are going to miss our CC family here for sure.
I'm terrible about shooting in the winter. Terrible. I realized the other day that, besides the video I shot, I have not picked up my camera for personal stuff at all this month. Oh, I had it on the to-do list but it kept getting pushed by other things. I always have big photography plans at the beginning of the year and they almost never happen.
So here are all four of my children. In the doorway. Under strong protest from everyone except Kenny. She still loves doing the photographer-kid thing. And no, Austin wouldn't look at the camera. Yay for checking off boxes!
We are immensely blessed and it is never more evident than at Christmastime.
