My favorite....

Yes...I actually took the kids out in this beautiful Fall season for photos on Sunday. We were rushed between church services, the rain drops were intermittent and Candace was having a fit about her hair getting wet, the gusts of wind came out of nowhere, and the kids were practicing to see who could "spit" the furthest. I know...I really should teach my kids manners some time. I have now gone through all the photos and salvaged some "okay" photos, but I have determined that this photo of the kids laughing, enjoying each other's company, and giving Mom a hard time, is my favorite of the day! I love these kids, even though they are a pain in the patootie sometimes. I wouldn't have them any other way. After all, these are the times they will remember 20 years from now....these will be the "good old days" when they look back over their childhood. I am so thankful for a close (sometimes too close) family. It is during this Fall season that I take extra time to be thankful for God's blessings to me. He has blessed me with the responsibility of raising these kids...and also the rewards of seeing them happy together.


  1. This is a great picture. Sometimes the most candid shot captures the best moment. I love it!

  2. You definitely caught the best moment, Alicia! This will be remembered. :)
