this is happiness

We're a happy clan. There is a whole lotta lovin' goin' on in our home right now. Maybe it's the plummeting hormones, maybe it's because I haven't cooked since the pancakes the night bebe was born, maybe it was the 2 weeks off work for KC, thanksgiving and the anticipation of Christmas, maybe it's Caroline! maybe it's not having to wear my maternity clothes any more, maybe it's the fact that I took my GIRL to a tea party today, maybe it's because as I type the men of the house are wresting and we're listening to Joni Mitchell. Does it get better than Joni Mitchell's Blue album? All I know is that God is good to us; I'm so thankful.

Here's baby sister's debut with her eyes open. I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying being able to doll her up in girly accessories and outfits. It definitely puts the tomboy in me to shame.

So far we've heard that she looks a bit like Colson, but it's hard for me to see resemblances at this point. It will be fun to watch her develop.

I mean, who wouldn't be a happy mama when you get lovin' on like this:

And a daddy like this:

At thanksgiving we shot my brothers hunting rifle. sorry people, i don't remember what kind it is, although my brother gave me all the details pertaining to which model and type it is. woops. there are just some things a woman doesn't care much about. so we all had fun blowing up a cinder blocks and pumpkins. Hey, I was born in Southeast Idaho, what do you expect? Here is Colson looking through the scope.

And here is my adorable nephew Solomon, just for more cuteness factor:solomon

The rifle is a Remington Model 700, stainless BDL style with a synthetic (non-wood) stock. Can't really tell about the scope. KC told me it was in .270 Winchester caliber.

KeriAnn-Oh your cup overfloweth, lady! Gorgeous babygirl! And still what beautiful boys. Congratulations on your PINK bundle. I just had my second BLUE one in July...maybe, just maybe the next one will be pink! :) But for now am sure loving my boys.

Hi Keriann~
Sarah Joy here. I always love looking at your blog for a few reasons. One because we know you and like you. Two because your pictures are amazing (didn't know this incredible talent of yours until soon after you left, darn) and lastly or more importantly, I'm always encouraged to be a better wife and mother. Your comments and pictures seem to capture the blessings and loveliness of being a mother and wife. It's everyday blessings that I seem to loose track of. Thanks for always being that site that I go to for encouragement...
*your sweet little girl is beautiful, I am praying and hoping God blesses us with #3 sometime soon.
