embracing the poses, peace signage and all.

{ the annual posed easter pic }

charity is still in mourning....
it's okay, sweetie, He's not dead
'He's alive, He's alive!'
i'm proud of caleb who's signing of 'peace' is clearly a reference
to the peace we have in Jesus through His awesome resurrection
i'm not sure why matthias is yelling at his shadow
but i have to commend jon for appearing to be the perfect one of the bunch

this one may be the keeper of the bunch

or perhaps this one where they all look so perfectly lined up.
and perfect.
{ ha! }

{ love the daddy/daughter pic }

let me just say that justin was the hero of the morning
and got charity dressed when everything ran late
due to early morning easter festivities
he chose the obnoxious white bow for char's hair
and at first i was taken aback but then i embraced it
it's easter.  i have a girl. 
she's got her totes adorbs easter dress and amazingly large white bow.
now all i need is some little girl hair lessons.
i seriously have no idea what to do with her hair except a side clip.
i mean, i know what i can do,
but my skillz in that department scream "mother of 3 boys"
{ mercy. }

speaking of boys
i'm embracing the camera with this handsome son of mine
who's fav color is red
so it only seemed fitting to hook him up with a red easter basket
with red gatorade inside
and a new red shirt to don for easter sunday
 { love you, matthias! }

i'm going to doubly embrace the camera today
and throw in this pic of me and justin
jon took it, and i love the pics of us from our kiddos angle
for one thing i look taller
and for another i think it's great for them to see justin and i lovin on each other
they 'hate' to see us kiss, know, we do it anyways 
and they pretend not to look and act all grossed out

oh, to torture your kiddos with the 'yucky love stuff'.....
it's our job as parents, right?!


it's spring break around here
and we're embracing that with lazy mornings
and lots of hanging out.

have a super thursday, all!


  1. GREAT photos! I'm new here... love the feel of your site so far! I'm off to check out some more posts. Thought I'd say hi rather than lurk around. :) Have a great week, sugar! xo

  2. Fun pics! I love the part about Charity being in mourning...gave me a chuckle.

  3. Love the pics! And the peace sign. Haha

  4. Love the posed pics and especially love the commentary!! LOL
    Don't worry for another sec. about how to do Charity's hair... just as soon as you find a 'good' way to do it, she'll have her own ideas for the 'best' way to style it. I think it's a girl with 3 brothers kind of thing!

  5. Great photos! Love the peace sign!

  6. great photos! Your daughter looks adorable! I am a fan of braids and pigtail buns for my daughter so easy to do and her hair stays up all day long ;)

  7. Cute pictures! Looks like you had a wonderful Easter!

  8. What a sweet lil fam, your blog is adorable by the way happy I stumbled onto it!

  9. What lovely pictures! Are these all your children!? Thank you for stopping by my blog :)

    Happy Friday.

  10. How cute are you guys?! And I love the little hair bow. I feel like I would be a better "boy mom" even though I have a little girl, so I also have a hard time embracing all the frill and glitter that little girls just love.
    But my goodness she looks so cute all dressed up for Easter
