My Treasures

"I will give you the treasures of darkness, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Isreal, who summons you by name." Isaiah 45:3

Yesterday the kids had a day off school and I suddenly realized that it was sunny, (good lighting for pics) they were all home, and I needed to get a picture of all of them. Since Ryan will be leaving us for Nashville Auto Diesel College in July (sniff, sniff), these rare moments will become non-existant soon. There was only one problem. I had a half hour to get to a dental appointment and none of my treasures were wearing clothes that would look okay in a photo. I rushed upstairs to find black and while clothing--but alas...could only find white. Oh well.... This was the final result of about 15 minutes of them trying to hold this pose. Out of about 20 pictures, this was the only usable one. haha I'm not that thrilled with it, but it's beter than nothing. Hopefully when it warms up outside and gets green, they will allow me to try this again but it's difficult trying to find a time when they are all available.

Below are some of the duds...but they tell the story, so I like them for their silliness factor. Oh and by the way....Kate goes for her heart cath in the morning (Fri.), and we would so appreciate prayers for her. As you can see in the pictures, her color is not good and we would like to have her get her surgery as soon as possible. Thank you for praying with us!
