A Few Of My Favorite Things...


We finally had our picture day today.......this is how Grace "cheeses" for her pictures. Do you have any idea how hard it was to get a picture of her without this expression on her face? I must have taken ten pictures of her alone trying to get another look from her! :) What I love about my children (just a few of the many things).....

How Grace is so girly and sassy and prissy. She doesn't just want a tricycle for Christmas, she wants a pink tricycle for Christmas.
I love how Emma smiles so big at me every time I come to pick her up from her nap. And how she leans her cheek over to my face for sugar.
I love how Elijah is so tenderhearted, and how he is so the eldest child--making sure everyone does what they are supposed to, when they are supposed to, just how they are supposed to.

I love how Gracie runs to the front of the church to sing in the booster band before it's even time yet...how she stands up there all by herself like, what are we waiting for? So eager to participate in her praise and worship time....
I love how Emma kicks her legs and waves her arms like a wound-up toy when she sees her Daddy first thing in the morning......




I love how Elijah makes up his own words/names for things tucked deep in his imagination....doze, tangle, wassum....

And most of all, I love how they are MINE!!

I love their pictures! Grace with her curls- just precious! Elijah with his hair- SPIKED! Love it! And the baby? Well, she's just babe-a-licious! They are all very precious and beautiful gifts from the Lord!
