Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.
~Desmond Tutu

In all of the stress and worry that has entered our family recently, the love and affection that my children have for each other (well, most of the time anyway...after all they are siblings!) keeps my heart lifted and filled with joy, comfort, faith and most of all - hope.
