The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

Very Random.... what have we been up to?

It has been a while since a post but we have been busy busy around here. Basketball, getting ready for Thanksgiving, a little photography/editing, and just enjoying family time!!

I will start off by sharing a few of our new family pics that I took, yes you read that right, I took them. It all started by a friend asking me if I would take a few pics of her and family up on monte sano in hopes of getting a good one for christmas cards. They turned out so good that I decided we would give it a try as well only I would be taking them and in the pictures as well =)
Set up the tripod, focusing in on Chad and Sam, set the timer, run over and get in the picture....
It was pretty funny, Im just glad there wasnt hardly anyone else up there because I know they would have gotten a kick out of it to say the least! Anyways, thought they turned out pretty good. I love photography and had a great time editing and playing around with these. I have had several people asking me if I would take some of their family so I dont know where this may lead but we shall see. Let me know what you think about our pics!!

Had fun making these cute little turkey cookies for Sam's class last week for Thanksgiving!!

Meridianville Eagles had their first basketball game this weekend and it was SO much fun to watch!! It is most of the kids first season so some are still catching on . We actually won 36-5! Way to go!! Sam scored one goal and I was a proud Moma!! He did a great job dribbling the ball down the court and played great defense!! Looking forward to the rest of the season!! You may notice in the pics Sam has on athletic pants instead of his shorts.... leave it to my child to spill gatorade not to long after the game started all over himself!! It was OK, thankful we had the pants to put on!! Ahh.... fun times and what great memories =)

yea... im guarding ya!
hated this was blurry, but this was after he scored, it was priceless!
Way to go Eagles!!
Have also been trying to do a little Christmas decorating around here, my tree is up with lights on but not decorated yet... im gettin there!! Also started shopping this week to =) I am so looking forward to Thanksgiving this week and spending time with family!! I am so very thankful for all my family and friends, I am so BLESSED! Hope you all have a great week!

Awesome job on the pics! Especially the one of y'all in the background-I bet you had to hoof it for that one! Thank goodness Sam is old enough to stand still!
I see Sam is following in daddy's footsteps with basketball! Looks so fun!
