Father's Day Gift

A few weeks ago my friend Tina came and took some amazing pictures of the boys, Paisley and I. She is so talented it's not even funny!! I had seen a picture awhile ago of little feet all piled together and just loved it. I thought that would be a neat idea for this Father's day, to get a cute pic of the kids feet all mushed together. She ended up getting so many great pictures so I think I'll do a photo book as well. There are so many personalized gifts you can do...I like using shutterfly the best. By the way, they are offering a FREE 8 X 8 PHOTO BOOK UNTIL JUNE 24TH, how great is that?? I'm so excited to show these pictures to Jake....he will love them. Thank you Tina for taking the time to come to our home, for editing these pictures soooo beautifully and for getting them back to me in good time. Please let me know how I can return the favor....

Enjoy a few of my personal favorites......
















"Mender of toys, leader of boys
Changer of fuses, kisser of bruises,
Bless him, dear Lord.
Mover of couches, soother of ouches,
Pounder of nails, teller of tales,
Reward him, O Lord.
Hanger of screens, counselor of teens,
Fixer of bikes, chastiser of tykes,
Help him, O Lord.
Raker of leaves, cleaner of eaves,
Dryer of dishes, fulfiller of wishes ...
Bless him, O Lord."

Beautiful pictures!!! Congratulations on your little baby girl, they are so much fun! I am a friend of Jeane's and usually when I read her blog, I read yours too. I love both of them! How did you get the music on your blog? I can't seem to figure out how to install. God Bless. Deva

Just a little something from Judy said...

You sure must have a very talented friend...not to mention every single one of you and your family are so very photogenic! Thank you for sharing the beauty with us. Young mothers like you are prettier than ever.

oh, so sweet...you are at such peace with your little family. Have I told you how OBSESSED my daughter is with your daughter?!? No kidding...she's copied and pasted more pics of sweet Paisley to my computer I can't even tell you! She could not get over that I didn't call her immediately the last time you stopped by the shop! She will melt in a puddle when I show her these tomorrow! Thanks for making the day of a baby-loving 12 year old!
blessings to you all...
