Easter 2012

silly sweetie!

showing off mama's french braids! Thank you Thomas the Train for 15 minutes of a girly sitting still!

This is what you get when you ask her to say "Cheese!!"
She's got it down!

hungry and ready to eat

A blossomed cross at our church Easter service
I wanted to end with that picture though it is so different from the others. It can be so easy to turn Easter into a holiday that has nothing to do with Jesus, yet He is the reason that we celebrate!! I am so thankful for my savior, who died a criminal's death for my sins. He willing laid down His life for mine (and yours, dear reader) so that I can live. That I can know grace and forgiveness, peace and love. Thank you Father for giving us your Son. The ugly, painful, wretched cross becomes a thing of beauty on Easter morning as we celebrate the fact that He has RISEN, he has risen indeed!

Annual Cherry Blossom Photos!

This is the 3rd year in a row we've gotten to take photos of our girl at the Cherry Blossoms blooming at the Capitol Mall. I love seeing how she grows from year to year. This year included lots of chasing and candid shots of our busy busy 2 year old girl! She is a delight! And the blossoms were beautiful as always!

most of the shots I got were like this! running from mama :) 



she really wanted in that fountain!

on the move again! I love this one!

just 2 years ago we were holding up a little 3 week old under these branches!
