Family Pictures 2010

We recently took our 2010 family pictures. It was a beautiful day in Comfort, Texas. A friend from church...the extra talented Josh Anderson...spent an afternoon with us and snapped his camera at all of the right times. Herein are a few of my favs. It's hard to choose just a few though. They were all well done.

We're off to Colorado for the holidays.
Be back in a week or so.
See you then.

Brothers Don't Shake Hands...

Brothers gotta hug!

(Allison and Lindsey, this was for you =)

Silas sitting outside, getting some vitamin D in the wintertime. (I know, I know, he's wearing a onesie only. It is still warm here during the 78 degrees two days ago warm. I miss being cold.)

Combatting the Cold

It's wintertime around here. If you are around our farm in the evenings, you will find Thomas building a warm fire out in the front yard. We burn a lot of mesquite wood around here, so often we put our coals into the smoker and bar-b-que something for dinner. It's the secret ingredient to Texas BBQ, I'm sure of it.

Sneak Peek

I'm going to let you in on a special preview of a sample of what will be under our tree this year. I've been working on a hand knit vest for baby Silas for about a month now and I finally finished this morning. It's made out of 100% camel hair, which sounds gross, but it's nice and chunky and soft. Come to think of is Silas.

I made this same vest for Abram about a year ago. You can see it here.

Have you EVER seen a cuter button? No. The answer is no, you have not. Seriously! I could not believe my eyes when I saw these buttons. Perfect for my little farm boy.

My Two Cherubs

I found the two boys out at the chicken coop yesterday...just sitting and relaxing in the sun, enjoying each other.
