It's the start of another year

It's the fresh beginning of a new school year, 
New backpacks and freshly sharpened pencils next to unbroken crayons.
Lord, please surround my children with Your mighty protection,
Be the lifter if their heads, the faithful God who goes before them as always.
Please calm this mama's heart as she sends off a middle schooler (gulp)
A 3rd and 1st grader, and an afternoon preschooler (be still my heart).

Jesus, all we need for Christmas is YOU

So much family fun and celebration.
Thank you, Jesus, for the gift of YOU,
And all the joy you fill us up with.
We praise You, Emmanuel, God with us.
A Merry Christmas 2014 indeed

Fam photo shoot

It was a picture perfect day for pictures.
Our location was urban trendy and AWESoME.
Our good friend, Tory, was once again behind the camera.
There were no tears.
There was a greater comprehension of what it means to
'Look at the camera'
Justin and I have just spent the last 3 months 
losing a collective 60 plus pounds
{so we were feeling pretty photo prepped}
We promised a fun lunch afterwards and so 
complaining was not an option....
And here is the result of the James fam pics 2014.

A minor miracle.  
That I'm already printing out in 8x10's for the mantle.

And this is how we roll.......
