7 Years Ago...

Eric & I got new titles...Daddy and Mommy. Happy Gotcha Day, Malakai Grant!


Hardy Family: BRRRRRR!

The thermometer said 1 degree when I began this family session. Not many of us can say we survived a family session with smiles and toddlers, let alone in this sub zero weather, but these three can! Little Rachelle was a trooper and Chet (the four-legged one) did amazing too. Here's to making new memories in the cold and snow!


Finally, It's Not Freezing!

After many days of bitterly cold weather, today's temperature stayed right around the freezing point allowing us to go out and enjoy some fun in the snow together. Sledding, shoveling, plowing. Thank heavens for fresh air in our lungs!


Princess in Training

A friend gave these to Hadassah this morning and she hasn't taken them off since they were handed to her. Never mind that they are too long and her chubby little feet don't reach anywhere near the top of the shoes. Feet rubbed raw from clopping around but she is in her glory. They remind me of my beloved jelly shoes I had as a little girl. Having a daughter is so much fun!



The boys in this family are in their glory. Both the little ones and big one too ;) They pulled some trees out of the woods and brought home some nice logs to cut up and then split later this spring. Thankful for long underwear and carharts ;) I'll get the hot chocolate ready soon cause they have been out all day long. The chainsaw is humming away and everyone should be ready for our Valentine's family seafood fest tonight! Loggin' trees by day, eating by candlelight at the dinner table tonight. This is how we say "I love you" around here...


Visiting the Newlyweds

We went on an adventure to Philly on Saturday to visit Moses and Roanna, the newlyweds. Their apartment is so cute. Four rooms stacked on top on each other with a spiral staircase through the middle. Hadassah only fell off and hit her head once so we thought we did pretty well ;) It was a frigid day so we decided to not walk around town too much. They found a wonderful indoor playhouse for the kids to get some energy out and we all had fun. We are thankful for the time we could spend together.
