Pumpkin Patch

Today we went with some friends to a pumpkin patch. The hope was to get some good photo's of the girls, pet some animals, and enjoy the sunny day.

Well, we accomplished petting some animals (Delaney was thrilled to see a real live bunny), and we for sure enjoyed the sunny day. Getting the good photo's...well.


My good friend hannah was the photographer and bless her heart, a two year old is not easy or fun to photograph. She did get some really sweet candid photos of us and a few great family photos.

One of my favorite parts about the day was Delaney experiencing all the real live animals that we talk about daily. So was just so excited to see them. It makes me appreciate her innocence. She is in awe of God's creation, from the ugly fat pot belly pig, to the pumpkin and corn husk. I wan't to be more in awe of God's creation.

Anyway, here are some of the great candid shots that hannah got. And of delaney being excited over the pigs and bunny.

{Good Boy}

I love this dog. I love that he loves her. I love that she loves her "bubba". He is so tolerant and such a good boy.

a skunk and a pumpkin

Now tell me,
Does it get ANY cuter then this?
Delaney is OBSESSED with her skunk costume...even though she has got to be sooo hot...she refuses to take it off! So cute.

Leonard and Robert

My girls both received a special gift from the Daddy when they were born.
Delaney received Leonard the Elephant.
Amelia received Robert the Swan.
Delaney cannot fall asleep without Leonard, he is a constant companion.
Amelia's Daddy makes sure that each time she goes to bed that Robert in snuggling up with her.
What sweet gifts.

Sweet Friendships

My girls are lucky. They were both born into friendships. Delaney's and her friend Gentry have had a little bit of a roller coaster relationship....for a while there they didn't get a long well, but now they have so much fun when they play together!

And Amelia has a couple of friends that she's just getting to know, Clara (far right) and Abilene (far left).

I pray that these friendships blossom and that my girls will cherish them as they grow!

Though the mountains be shaken...

You know how sometimes when you read the Word, you come across scripture that seems totally brand new, and absolutely meant specifically for you? Well, i had that experience with this little piece of scripture:

Isaiah 54:10

-"Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed," says the LORD who has compassion on you.-

I mean, wow, huh? I have known the Lord for a good portion of my life and there have for sure been times that if i were God, i would totally give up on me.

And yet.

God's unfailing love will not be shaken. Imagine, sin so deep, so ugly, that it shakes mountains and removes hills.

And yet.

God's covenant of peace shall not be removed. I don't deserve this.

I PRAISE my sweet Savior that He has compassion on me. I've decided to commit this verse to memory (i should do this more often). So if you see me anytime soon....feel free to ask me what Isaiah 54:10 has to say about our compassionate Father. And let it sink into your heart too.

Chalk Board Green...

So this is my chalk board green wall.....

the photo doesn't really show the true colors, except for the chalk board green wall, that one is pretty accurate.
the other wall is the really nice soft olive green color (can you tell that's the color i picked?).

as much as i dislike the chalk board (hey! maybe this will be our home school room one day! haha!) i do love my new duvet cover.


what do you think?

Here I go, joining the crowd over here at
