Some of my faves.

First, I have to add to my list the 26th thing that makes me happy. My babysitter, Lindsey, made me these cookies while I was taking a nap. Waking up to this plate, definitely made me happy!
So, #26 is Lindsey. We are so thankful for you, girl. One of the hardest parts about being sick is not being able to kiss my little punkins...

Now, for the fun pictures I took before I got West Nile (just kidding.. I hope!). I had less than 30 minutes and saw this place out of the corner of my eye while driving. It is a total eye-sore near Tim's office but made great pictures! It is always stressful trying to keep the boys in one place long enough to get a good picture. Tim just about has a nervous breakdown. I don't think it is good for his blood pressure to help me with pictures.
Reece doesn't look his best in this picture but check out the clouds in the windows. You know I am lovin' those!
You can click on it and make it bigger.

Lake looks so big in these! He is growing so fast. He will not talk for anything. NOT A WORD. No words even though he knows exactly what is going on. I can say, "ok, time to brush teeth!" and he darts into the bathroom climbs up on the toilet and opens his mouth. Or, I will say, "time to go!" and he runs out the door and climbs in the van. But ask him to talk (even bye-bye) and he ignores you completely. He is so cute. What a little treasure.

All 3 of my children have on shirts and shoes.
I told them it was School Picture Day. :)

I am still in bed sweating. Hopefully, tomorrow will be better.
Love all of you blog buddies!

Those are awesome pictures Stephanie! I've driven past that place a gazillion times and never had the thought to take pictures in front of it. Actually all i think is "they need to tear that place down" Leave it to you to find the beauty in something most would find ugly. The boys look so cute in the matching shirts and I agree Lake looks SO BIG! Hope you start feeling better soon! Let me know if you need anything. I'm cooking dinner for a friend who just had a baby tomorrow and can fix an extra batch if needed.

Stephanie- I hope you feel better also and that the fever breaks! That can just wipe a person out and all I do is moan and sleep when I have a fever and aches.

Your photos are absolutely gorgeous. I think when we need family photos I want to have you do them.... you should do that as a business... you are really really talented.

Hi Stephanie! I continue to pray that you heal and return full force to the life I know you are aching to live with your boys! God bless you and your family. Thanks for the fantastic pictures, they are amazing as always!

I love places like that! the kids and I stop at them all:) all over Texas ~ in fact, funny now the boys point the places out and find them for me! ~ we love torn down, falling apart places and such - anything for a good backdrop - but I must say, those clouds are awesome - but even more, those little guys in the pics!:)

I laughed about the shoes and shirts - I so relate - my boys never wear shoes - or hardly ever - and shirts too - they are older and still would rather be like that - I buy tons of flip flops and just keep them in the car so that when we go somewhere at least I know I've got shoes for them!~

Thanks for posting - your post on who do they say that Jesus is" - keep telling the gospel - keep pointing to Jesus - that 's all that matters when all is said and done ~ that's what we're here for. :)

hope you're feeling better - and good for you taking all these pictures :)
