Friday, January 11, 2013 much to be thankful for

Taking a moment to recount the many blessings of 2012...
Excited anticipation...
now a family of four.
Sweet little hands learning to help in the kitchen
A toddler's treasures
Time remembering the cross...our brokenness redeemed
Learning to help mommy...folding
First experiences...toes in the sand
Special meals for special people
Father's Day surprises
Carefree summer fun...concerts in the park
Exploring our big backyard
Glorious, creative, playful...messes
A garden's abundant bounty
Diaper clad garden helpers
Our own rose garden much reading
More helping hands...and and extra helping of cinnamon
Surprises in the garden...unexpected gourds
A bushel Gravensteins...and the comfort of homemade apple sauce
Sister giggles in homemade tents
Dancing holes into favorite pajamas
Exploring God's oceanic handiwork
A backyard birthday bash
Collections...special treasures
More art...and sun streaming warm through the kitchen window
Carving out family memories
Giving much to be thankful for
Lively girls...too quick for the camera
The story of Christ come down (and princesses)
Ballerina bakers...Christmas cookies
Sick days with Little Bear
Gingerbread and time with church family
New ballet slippers, so much dancing
A new home...Bend, Or
In Him,
