My Pumpkin Patch

Published by under Family,Photography

So it’s not looking like we are going to make it to a real pumpkin patch this year… but the pumpkin Gabriel picked out at the grocery store a couple weeks ago is pretty cute… and I have my own little patch of coppery punkins! I love them. They sure are sweet as pumpkin pie!

Big Kid Joys

I love babies. My mom might smile and tell you that’s largely because I’ve had “easy babies.” But let’s be honest: to at least a certain extent, babies are babies, and babies are also honed by the hard work of their mama. So while God definitely did give my babies their blessed personalities and natures, […]

Life as SAHM is (More Than) Enough

I praise my King, that He and His grace are sufficient (which means not only enough, but completely and totally filling it up to all the corners!) even for the moments where I muse about the following… where I wonder about myself and my work… where I ask Him, is it enough? and am I […]

Joy Multiplied

The joy of having these four children in my arms is indescribable. Simply incalculable! And that joy is multiplied by the delight they take in one another.      Thanks be to God for these immeasurable blessings!

Nine Treasures, on PAIL Day

Today (Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day) we are remembering our darlings in heaven, the nine siblings of our treasures here. While this day does not cut so acutely into my heart as it once did, it is still a day that bittersweetly blesses and affects me. In addition to treasures of glory, of Christ, […]
