Everyday Life: Evenings at Our House

With the weather being so nice lately we've been spending more and more time outside! :)  Last night was no exception!  We love the coolness of evening!  

Needless to say, I got my camera and took it outside with me.  Judah was just being too cute (an everyday problem ;) and I couldn't help not to take pictures of him! 

I ended up taking a few pictures of some of my other siblings too.  (Judah definitely dominated the majority of my photos though!)  Quite often I think that I should spend more time taking photos of the "older ones" but I just can't!  Babies grow up way too fast and I've got to capture all his little milestones and smiles! :)  

So here you have some pictures of an evening at our house!!

I have told you that I have a slight obsession with baby feet and hands...here's more proof! :)

I had to get Hannah to come talk to Judah so I could get these pictures.  I think he's scared of my camera, so when it's just me and him...and I've got my camera...he looks like he's scared to death.  That doesn't make the best photos so I get a sibling to come distract him for me! :)

Okay, I have an obsession for anything baby!! :)

As I was taking the above photos, Lydia came over and as soon as I turned my camera to her she gave me this look:


But back to Judah! :)
In the swing!

Isn't he the cutest thing ever???!!!

As Judah was swinging the majority of my siblings were jumping over a rope on one of our trampolines.  They were jumping and smiling like crazy! :)

Some people fell down...

...and others exhibited the wonderful static a trampoline creates! :)  [We call this the Einstein look. :)]

On the crawl...

After I felt like I had taken enough pictures I went inside and put my camera up.  A little while later I went back outside and folded some clothes that were hanging on the clothesline while I watched my family work and play: Daddy and Mommy were tending to our potato plants, siblings ran up and down the rows racing each other and the sky was bathed in vibrant red and pink hues.  

It was such a peaceful scene.

As I watched everything and hummed "All for Jesus" gratefulness overflowed my heart.  

I am so blessed!
Kimber :)

Bless the LORD, O my soul;
         And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
 Bless the LORD, O my soul,
         And forget not all His benefits:
 Who forgives all your iniquities,
         Who heals all your diseases,
 Who redeems your life from destruction,
         Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
 Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
         So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. 
Psalm 103:1-5

Every day Life: Kimber

My older sis. This is her serious face when she doesn't want me to take a pic of her! She'll go  "Caleb, put that down and don't take another picture OK?!"

God bless,

Everyday Life: Lydia

I was wandering outside one day last week, looking for something picture-worthy.  Lydia ended up being perfect! :)  

Disclaimer: Quite a few of these pictures I took aren't posed...she did them all herself.  Honestly when I showed up with the camera, she acted a little bit tired of me taking pictures of her...my siblings have come to just ignore me sometimes!  But, it actually works out great because I then get natural photos!  

ANYWAYS, here's Miss Lydia:

  I know this photo isn't focused correctly but she just hugged the tree and said "Tinna, take a piture of me."  (Translation:  Kimber, take a picture of me.")  And you know I couldn't resist such a request!

Picking some dandelions!

After she showed me her bouquet, Lydia headed over to the swings and pleaded that I push her.  So I did! :)

The higher I pushed her, the bigger her smile got! :)

 Fun, Fun!

And just because our yard is looking absolutely gorgeous (due to Daddy's hard work!) I must show you a picture of our lovely, green grass!!!

Okay, randomness over! :)
I bid adieu,
Kimber :)
