Where did you get that beautiful puppy? Is he purebred or a rescue? And what does his name mean?
So looking forward to future posts nad seeing all the great puppy shots!

I usually just peek in and run on to the next blog in my google reader... today I had to stop and say hello. The fact that you are not feeling wordy, makes me think you are having a bad morning. Sending a virtual HUG.

And, OMG! That shot of Annie sleeping with Shindad is just fantastic. Such a sweet moment in time.


annie's bathing suit is too darn cute! {wish i had a little girl..sniff}


I always enjoy your words, but you know your photos speak volumes. I'm praying for you all, Karen!

Any man with enough confidence to wear bunny ears is a total hunk. Thanks for sharing your photos, and I'll be thinking of you and your family.

It wasn't until these pictures that I recognized this beach from my childhood. I lived near Beaverton, OR and went to the beach more times than I can count. Thanks for bringing back so many memories and for sharing these amazing pictures. Oh to not be landlocked again!


Great shots...and yes, they totally tell the story!! Josh is quite the hunk in bunny ears! Jeff said that every couple should go through being makes your love that much stronger. And I think you totally appreciate each other much more! Hang in there my friend. Praying for you every day. Big hugs from across the country!!!!!


Hugs to you, K! And the kids!
