America's Next Top Model is.....Kali Faith!!

Kali had a photo shoot with our good friend and budding photographer Becky the other day. Here are a few of my favorites. These are for her 3 year pictures and I would love to get your opinion. I'm going to get a couple 8x10's and then some wallets. So what do you think? I will number the pictures and then in the comment section tell me your favorites!! Thanks! #1
Of course...I wasn't quite ready for the photo shoot...but at least one of us looks cute!!

It's so hard to believe that it has been 4years now of visiting the cemetery on Memorial weekend, and almost 5years since Abbey went home to Jesus. Abbey has been on my mind alot this week with the sad news of Steven Curtis Chapman's 5year old daughter passing away in a at home accident. That feeling came back, the one where your stomach just hurts and your heart just breaks. You never think that something like this could happen and when it does there are no rules or guide book. I just pray and ask you to do the same that God just covers them with his grace in this time that they need it most. We were blessed to have Abbey in our lives for 2 years 10 months...may the loving memories stay forever!! Here is a poem that was given to me when Abbey was called home-
When God Calls Little Children Home
When God calls little Children to dwell with him above,
We mortals sometimes question the wisdom of His love.
For no heartache compares with the death of one small child
Who does so much to make our world seem wonderful and mild.
Perhaps God tires of calling the aged to His fold,
So He picks a little rosebud before it can grow old.
God knows how much we need them, so He takes but a few
To make the land of heaven more beautiful to view.
Believing this is difficult, still, somehow we must try,
The saddest word mankind knows will always be "goodbye."
So when a little child departs, we who are left behind
Must realize God loves children...Angels are hard to find!

My girls!

Happy Mothers Day!!

I know I'm a little late!! I really hope that all you mothers out there had a wonderful mothers day. It truly is an honor to be called mom, it's one of those titles that I wear proudly!! We had a fantastic family gathering at our house for Mother's Day this year! We were glad that both sides of the family could join us in celebrating each other!! There were lots of moms in the room and each at such different stages of motherhood. What a blessing that we all share the same common goal, and that is to bring up Godly children that love the Lord!
Jake took a moment (and I do mean moment) to pose for a picture with Guela! Happy Mothers Day Guela!!
Kali with her Mommy and me with mine!! Love ya Mom! Happy mothers day!!
Misc other stuff!!
I had Truman take Kali outside the other day...usually he does his own thing and just keeps an eye on her....But this time I found him giving her t-ball lesson! It was so cute!!
Grandpa missed Kali's birthday party, but we did save a two cupcakes for the next day. It turned into a tea party with party hats
Spring is trying to Spring...The kids love to eat outside. Here's to hoping the weather will get a little nicer so that they can do it more often!
