Growing Up

Charis is growing up. She loves being the big sister. :) Her most recent thing (on top of trying to completely dress herself and Mercy) is trying to do her own hair and Mercy's as well!

I had a lingering headache Sunday morning that had lasted all night and most of Saturday, yuck. :( I was laying in bed for as long as I could eek out but Charis was on top of things that morning! I had done all the ironing the night before so everything was ready for two very excited girls, they were getting to wear some dresses they had never gotten to wear before. They got their slips, shirts and dresses on and buttoned, sorry, don't tie their own bows yet. ;) Got their shoes on and fixed their own hair! Ain't it lovely?

Notice since they could not find Mercy's white shoes she is wearing her ever faithful pair of "lip lops" as she calls them. :)

A close up of the "fuzzhead" and the "mophead" as their daddy lovingly refers to them. ♥

While they are doing great momma did decide to spruce them up just a tad (and even tie their ties, hehe). Notice we still could not find Mercy's white shoes before church but at least they are more appropriate than "lip lops". We did eventually find them late Sunday night once everyone was in bed on top of Charles' bedroom dresser, how they got there I have no idea!

I am so thankful for my girls. God has given me their sweet smiles to brighten my days for which I am very grateful. Happy Monday!

With Daddy

I'm so thankful to have a hubby who loves to spend time with his little girls. I took these shots that month of Julia and Charles and it reminded me of the ones I took of Mercy and Charles.
Sweet memories. ♥

"And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse." Malachi 4:6

I wish I had....

...a camera that could take pictures in the dark!

Last week it was late at night and I went to let the dog inside, we have a street light on our property that we really enjoy (since we have a bunch of creepy people who walk down our street) but it had flickered off which it does from time to time. But it was soooo bright outside it practically looked like daylight! I went ahead and stepped out onto the steps and it was absolutely amazing!

The sky was very clear and a light gray color (not black like the pictures show) and it was a beautiful full moon. Not that a full moon isn't a normal event but I have never seen it like this.

The moon itself was completely clear and defined. You could see every single crater perfectly. But around the moon itself was this clearing and then a perfect ring of light around it as well. And the ring was made up with the colors of the rainbow, a perfect prism surrounding it.

Let me tell you, it was gorgeous!

When I added the fill light you can kind of see the prism I am talking about. But the sky was so clear, bright and beautiful I wanted to capture the moment, but, alas no such luck with my little camera.

I love the sky and could never get tired of looking at it.

"And God made two great lights; the greater LIGHT to rule the day, and the lesser LIGHT to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give LIGHT upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the LIGHT from the darkness: and God saw that it was good." Genesis 1:16-18

God is indeed, very good. Y
