Fall Family Pictures

I haven't had many things to say lately on this here blog.  I know so many are praying for me and our family and I truly feel so loved and supported and cared for. That is like medicine to my Soul and I know it's a gift from God, a tangible way he is showing me that he is my heavenly father and is mourning with me and loves me. I'm thankful for that. Although I still have A LOT of ups and downs - today I feel the most like myself. And I'm capitalizing on that. :) Who knows what tomorrow will be like though b/c it changes from day to day (or minute to minute).

So b/c I feel a little better today - I wanted to write this post that was supposed to go out sometime the week that "it" all happened.
Every year I like to get Fall pictures of our family! I just love the fall and I love to have an updated picture for our Christmas cards. 2 days before the big "incident" (for lack of a better word) we were able to get them done and now I'm so happy. I think they turned out pretty good considering we just had a tiny tripod, a 6 year old tiny camera and a self timer. Take a look for yourselves. :)
These pictures make me so happy and sad at the same time. Happy b/c I remember how excited and joyful we were about the future and that we were anticipating a new baby - and sad b/c of how much sadness has filled my heart in the last almost 2 weeks. :(
I am blessed beyond measure by a wonderful husband and 2 beautiful healthy boys! And I am more thankful than ever right now for them.

P.S. - We also had a taken a picture with the boys touching my poking out belly for an "announcement" picture for my blog later in the week. I can't bring myself to post that one though. :(

He had really wacked his eye the night before these pictures
and you can really see his bruise in this one

Although you are having a lot of emotions surrounding these pictures, they are just precious, and I know that they will mean a lot to you in the years to come. Everything works for good to those that love God, right? God bless you!

great job posing and getting your boys to smile at the camera with a self timer! you have a gift :)
I'm so sorry though, that one of these beautiful pictures had to be left behind. It always hurts to say good-bye, no matter when. :/

The pictures are lovely - all of them! And I'm sure that the one with the boys and the baby will be a special treasure to keep tucked away. I'm sure it's sort of proof that everything was so real. Even if the proof brings such a flood of emotions. Much love.
