13 special kiddo moments ~ TT 20

After spending time this week typing out the kids' birth stories, I have been especially sentimental about how quickly time is passing. Looking back and thinking about what was going on in our lives as these pictures were taken was sometimes painful. But to know we have perservered and triumphed by the grace of God and the love of our family and friends is awesome.
So I wanted to share some of my favorite photos with you. I SO need to get a CD burner. Some of these are trapped in my computer. Please, Dear God! Don't ever let my computer crash.

Here's number one...Soccer Goalie extraordinaire!
He had red jello for lunch ~ fourth of July picnic.
And here's #1 in his "natural state".
#2 and #4 snuggled together...aren't they precious?

#2 and #3 all dolled up for a program at church. Got both dresses at Goodwill for less than $5. I was pretty proud and so were they!
#3 ~ my goofy artist giving herself a pat on the back.
#2 as a daffodil. Our town has a daffodil festival each year. Some of the other local towns do "Old Fashioned" day, "Heritage" days and DON'T LAUGH...the nearest big city has "Turkey-Rama". Yah, they celebrate Turkeys.
Isn't she a cute little yellow flower?
Back before our lives exploded, we entered the blond, greeneyed whirlwind into a pageant. THAT was an experience. Never to be repeated!
About 4 months after my husband left us ~ our "new" family structure.

#4 at about 2...she'd just had a bath and for some reason she got the "Who" hair. Like Dr. Seuss Who's (Horton hears a Who and Cindy Loo Who on The Grinch) and I couldn't resist taking some pictures.
"Lookie, Lookie! It's our NEW baby SISTER!"
My crew...Fall 2002
Halloween 2005 ~ Angels, black cats and lions, OH MY!

I think they are beautiful and amazing and fantastic.

But I'm just a little prejudiced, you know!

Have a great week, Ya'll.

Yes...our kiddoes are pretty cool! The older they get, the harder it is to remember that...but just listen to what people tell you about how wonderful they are and ignore how they treat you!

Cute kids! They do grow up so fast. I grew up in THAT town and we called it "Turkey Trama" Good times those. HaHa.

great list! definitely get those pictures out of the computer -- you never know. how about a thumb drive and then you can pop it into a friend's computer who has a CD burner? just a thought. Happy TT, mine's up!
