This little boat has a story of its own, it's a story that I'll save for another time but the short version is that my engagement ring was delivered on it, now my kids play with it.
My sweet little brown babies, the summer was good to us.
I do love these sweet girls.
This is Kendall's "bunny" he has been around awhile and has had a few surgeries and some serious love in his life.
Some last minute rowdiness with Dad then the girls and I read a story from the Bible together. Afterwards Kendall heads to her room for a book with Dad and Kate and I read together. Each girl says their prayers and have a couple of songs before the lights go out.
The girls always hug before bed, actually Kate is quite adamant that Kendall NOT kiss her. I guess she was feeling generous this night with the camera there.
Oh this arm around the neck snuggle. I can't handle it, I dread the day that these little squeezes stop.
They're prayers are always the sweetest. They pray for Shirley in Peru (Compassion International), they had a long list of things they are thankful for: Daddy's job, our house, good neighbors....sweet little voices being thankful.
