    This is about how it usually goes to try to get a pic with several of my kids.

    I forgot a bunch of pics in the original post!

    Here they are, including the twins getting extensions.

    Although they loved it, it took a long time to get done and their personalities did not do well for sitting and having someone else do it.

    It was fun to have for a while though!

    This made my heart melt when I took it.

    So cute.

    Self Portraits in the Snow ~January 2016

    Thursday, December 22nd, 2016

    I did a project last January to get in pictures with all of my kids but could only share the ones I took with my boys.

    Here are some I took with “B” in some beautiful snow we had.

    In case you are wondering, it is a really bad idea to look at beautiful pictures taken in snow when it is almost Christmas and thunderstorms are in the forecast…

    Here are the previous posts with the boys shots, here and here.

    Self Portraits with my Girls

    Wednesday, December 7th, 2016

    Back in October I shared some pics of Nick and I.

    At the same time I took some pics with my girls but could not share them.

    I had not intended to take pics with them that day, they just saw the tripod and asked.

    So of course I said yes.

    I struggle to focus on these happy moments.

    I have had very little hardship in my life so having children from hard places is a struggle.

    I am used to choosing the easy way.

    There is no easy way.

    Nick is so good at making choices based on what is in his circle of influence and not stressing about the stuff outside of it.

    I want to stress about the outside stuff.


    This is a journey is a marathon, not a sprint.

    Pictures help me focus on something beautiful and happy.

    Looking at them helps me feel like there is hope.

    What gives you hope?
