December FOUR

kids holiday 2012

I won the kid lottery. Four times. 

I realized today that I am one of those moms who thinks her kids are perfect. I do. Because they give me so much reason to believe it. They are like masterpieces. I am in awe. 


I used to take photos of my kids on the first of every month, now it's on the fourth. Four for four. (Here's December 2010 & 2011.) 


  1. LOVE! And this Mimi knows they are masterpieces! I've never seen such happy faces...

  2. they are masterpieces! i have the same exact thoughts on my own children. every day they amaze me. every day!

  3. They are perfect, you know, for you. I'm in constant awe of how I have these two amazing children that I've been chosen to parent and love. And I can't imagine not having them, it's like they've always been with me.

  4. Is it bad that I miss Ivy's sweet little pigtails? ;) This is wonderful. They look very happy. Ohio must be agreeing with them!

    1. You know, we still do the pig tails for church or school (especially when we don't have time to get out the tangles!) but she takes them out as soon as get home! I miss them, too!

  5. Masterpieces of God's design. Knit in our wombs. I just love the thought. They are precious, Steph.

    And I need to take a pic today!!

  6. Pbbbbbssssttttt. (That was a raspberry at you. Because my kids were so not perfect today.)

    (I'm just kidding; I do get exactly what you mean with your gorgeous self.)

  7. Ha! I'm one of those moms too. ;)

  8. YES! You did make four gorgeous, brilliant, talented unique children. What a blessing! I don't even mind you thinking that because I really know that my children are... the most gorgeous, brilliant talented and unique children on the planet. :-)

    I love the photos on the fourth of every month. Now that my eldest is a junior in college, I can't do such a thing. I am praying when she comes home my eleven-year-old youngest will be willing to let me take some December photos... something we always do.

    I am visiting from Just Write today, in case you are curious. happy day!

  9. Awwww! All such sweet siblings! They look alike but you can see their separate personalities shining through!
