Recent Family Photos

10/11/09–Got Scott’s dad to snap a few quick family pics after church…Hadn’t had a family photo in 3 yrs.! Little Kerry is now 6 and Sarah is 8…and Scott and I, of course, are getting younger and younger every day!! =-)

Ah, there we go…the youngins are smiling a little in this one! ๐Ÿ™‚

Daddy thinks he’s SOOOO clever…but you can tell by my face that I’m on to something. I can tell by Sarah’s face that she’s bursting at the seams…trying to hold it in and not tell me! Little Kerry’s like “Hee, Hee, Hee! Mom’s got rabbit ears…I’m not going to tell her…I could keep this to myself ALL day!!” =-)

Hee, Hee, Hee…it’s just the parents in on it this time…See how happy I look!! ๐Ÿ™‚ The kids look so innocent and unsuspecting!! Hee, Hee, Hee!! =-)

(Can you tell I’ve been w/ Scott a LONG time?! Yes, I’m certainly learning some of his ways and sense of humor!! =-) )

____________________________________________

Scott and I…I just love how serious he looks and how his expression hardly changes at all from 1 pic to the next!! How does he do that?!

My gray shows a little more in this one. It was nice to be closer to hubby though….but he looks even MORE serious in this one!

It’s All About The Princess

“Kid’s Play…It’s all about the Princess!!” =-)

Our neighbor Keon came over to play w/ the kids. They have such a great time playing together, just using their imaginations. (I’m thinking Sarah came up w/ this idea, but the boys played along! ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

_____________________________________________

These dudes are serious about protecting the princess!! =-)

______________________________________________

Keon looks cool in this photo, huh?! Just look at that focus! ๐Ÿ™‚

______________________________________________

Ooh, Kerry looks kinda mean, huh?! He’s very serious…and tough, of course!

A-h-h…Sarah, the princess. Yep, she’s lovin’ it!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Family B-Day Fun & Fellowship

This past Sat., we had a combination b-day party at my brother Johnny’s house . [A belated one for Johnny (July 5th) and a little early for my daughter Sarah (July 23rd).] This is the cake I baked, and I decorated it the way my Sarah Beth suggested. ๐Ÿ™‚

Museum Trip

Today (on Sarah’s b-day) the kids and I went on a museum trip w/ my sister-in-law Lisa & my two nieces, Heather and Rachel. We went to the NC Museum of History and the NC Museum ofย  Natural Sciences. It was a great day, and it wore the kids out! (always a plus!! ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Sarah and I took turns taking these pics w/ her little digital camera. Hope some of them turned out alright! ๐Ÿ™‚ :

A Few More Pics…

…from Sarah’s Baptism…Sun. 6/28/09:

Sarah coming down the steps to the Baptistry.

Sarah’s almost in the water!

I just love this pic! I think it captures Sarah’s enthusiasm! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m so happy for my Sarah Beth and for all those who were recently baptized!

Sarah after being baptized. Took a pic of Sarah w/ her towel and wet hair in front of the stain-glass window.

Sarah’s still looking pretty happy and excited! ๐Ÿ™‚

**This was something Sarah decided on her own that she was ready to do.ย  This was actually a test of faith for her, because she was nervous and afraid of having her head under water.ย  [Yes, we’ll be working on the swimming lessons! ๐Ÿ™‚ I was the same way when I got baptized at 9.ย  In fact, I was scared to death, in a way, but (like Sarah) I knew that the Lord would be with me and would help me!]

Again, I’m so happy for my Sarah Beth! ๐Ÿ™‚

Who Can Relate?

I’m sick again…bronchitis this time.ย  I’m feeling pretty depleted.ย  However, it certainly could be worse, and this too shall pass.ย  I sure can relate to this pic, though, and of course, I think it’s cute:

They’re Growing Up…

sooooo fast!

Here’s a few pics from a recent informal photo shoot. Scott’s dad, Kerry, took these.

They’re growing up SOOOO fast!

Here’s Kerry Scott III acting like the big brother with his arm around Sarah. I think they liked this for a change.
