this was our last sunday of 2010, i was washing the dishes gazing out my the kitchen window, contemplating how beautiful the lighting is on overcast days like this...perfect for pictures!!!! even though the kids were not completely ready for church we couldn't pass up the perfect moment...once again these crazy kids were in the mood for pics and posed themselves. they are so fun when they WANT to take pics.

praying your year went out with a bang and brought great memories - for life is what we make it so lets make it great.

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.
