Growing. Growing. Growing.

Hopefully, our family will soon grow some more by one or two or maybe more.

Growth. Family. Grace. Forever.
Isn’t this the best picture ever? We had a blast at our ‘after party.’ Thanks to everyone who made the effort to attend the sealing. The children felt very special and safe and loved. And that makes me smile! We sure love our family and friends. We are so blessed to have such amazingness all around us. :)

Since my entire immediate family planned to come down the end of March, we jumped at the chance to update our group family photo. I think it turned out great for a somewhat spur of the moment, in the midst of chaos, and set the timer and run kind of picture. Here are some other snaps that turned out.

We also took a quick photo with Adam’s family a few months ago. We posted those on the photo site awhile ago, and I finally got my sweet husband to post them in the blog gallery. It makes me super happy when I see the pictures of all of the grandkids together. I LOVE IT. Hopefully, we will be able to add more to the chaos in the future.

Who knew we would make such beautiful babies! :) I suppose this post is a little past due, but I know there are many out there who know we took family pictures a few weeks ago. So here is the end result. We took them ourselves while in Logan, UT for Halloween. Check out my sister’s blog for Halloween pics…she and my mom were the only ones who captured actual Halloween pics because I was busy getting four kiddos ready on my own. Adam flew in and met us as we were walking out the door to trick-or-treat. We are so glad that he made it in time. There is no going back–the kids officially know what Halloween entails. Of course, I threw all of their candy away about three days after we got home. I couldn’t take the begging and whining for candy for breakfast anymore. However, I did pull out the best bits of candy and stashed them away for a rainy day! (Yeah, yeah, what are you going to do about it?)

The kids had a blast at Jaimee and Brian’s. And they were troopers during pictures. They actually tried to smile–even though a couple of them are still learning how to pose for the camera. (oh, the things we take for granted) I am really pleased how they turned out. And I am even more pleased that we don’t have to have a desert landscape. Fall pictures are always my favorite. Here you go:
