Family Pictures

Ever since Avery was born I wanted to get our family picture taken. I kept putting it off until his birthday.

On his birthday we dressed in our very best and headed to Sears for a photo shoot. Avery was very cute and I love the way our family photo turned out.



Since it was his birthday, the took his picture with a giant "1." It is one of the cutest pictures I have ever seen, but then again, I'm biased. :)



On Henry's birthday, we dressed up and again headed out to get our picture taken. By this time, our family had lost a little guy and gained a little guy. It was a bitter sweet time.


And, because it was Henry's birthday, we took a picture celebrating his first year of life.


I am so blessed with the family God has given us. I would not trade it for the world.

PS Henry's pictures were taken by my very talented friend Becky at Flutterbug Photography

  3. Henry is a doll! Love his shot. I remember when you posted your family picture with Avery; I thought is was a unique one. You dont see many poses with the family standing up. Loved it.

  5. Audra, thanks for visiting. I go off on tangents but basically I'm a liberal Lutheran who believes in social justice for the poor, education that matters, and that no matter what, my Lord love me because I have accepted the grace he has freely given me with no strings attached.

    Henry is adorable! I wish you many many happy years of boy raising. I attribute every grey hair on my head to both of my children, son and daughter, but I wouldn't have traded a minute of it. Now they are adults, still at home, and good to me and their dad.
