Children Of God

My Hannah was eight months old this past Sunday. Here, she's showing off her new Valentines Day Dress. She couldn't stay still long enough to show off Mickey and Minnie so I took a separate picture of them.She's such a happy child. She loves to smile. I guess she watches her brother because he's the same way. He's got the same smile.Hunter is showing off his new vest; he loves to pose.
The face I LOVE.

I know I post pictures all the time of my kids. They are my life, my Children of God. They are my world. My husband and I have been so blessed to have such a wonderful family . We try to not miss one day without saying, "Thank you, Lord". Thank you for bringing this wonderful husband in my life and allowing us to have such beautiful children. They fill our life with so much joy it seems I could bust at the seam sometimes.

Tonite, I watched the Caylee Anthony Memorial and I cried. I cried, I cried some more and then I cried again. As I watched the video, "Gone too soon", I hurt. I hurt for the family of that poor little girl. She didn't ask to be born in the world and she was loved by so many. Just watching the pictures of her innocence and her beauty, it really hurt to see that she is gone, too soon. I can't imagine what I would do in that situation. I think I would go crazy. I think I would, literally, go insane. I can't fathom how anyone could hurt a child. There are SO many people in this world who would love to have a child and can't. I can't stand knowing that there are people in this world who can take the life of a child and not think twice about it.

My kids are my world. I can hardly wait to see them when I walk in the front door everyday. I'm in love. I love them good, bad, in time out, and excited.

I'm so blessed to have my children and my husband. I know that, in this day and time, nothing is forever. We have no ideas what tomorrow holds so now is the time to tell them you love them. Now is the time to spend with them.

Please continue to pray for the Anthony family. They will need our thoughts and prayers while they mourn the loss of Caylee. God bless you all!

Oh what darling children and photos of them! I love that you are so close to your children; I remember feeling the same way when my dd's were small. All too quickly they grow up and leave home. Until then, tho, just enjoy each day with them!

I couldn't agree more Jenn. I don't know what I would do without my girls either. Great pictures of your sweeties.
