cute boy named Caleb


This is Caleb, and he’s three. He’s sweet, adorable, and oh so busy! He’s always making some craft or another, or leaving a trail of tiny pieces of paper all over the living room, left over from a paper cutting session. He smiles the cutest, he just can't help scrunching his face up all funny when I tell him to smile in front of a camera. I was out milking my goats a couple mornings ago, and felt the urge to take portraits, so I grabbed the nearest kid, (Caleb. :) and perched him on the fence. So I could get the sky in the photo, ya see… He was too short to get the sky in the photo any other way!! :)

     And then we got the classic “boy and dog look into the distance,” photo. That’s such a classic, and it happens almost every time I pose one of the kids with the dog. I think it’s cute!!  

       Haven’t I got the cutest siblings in the world?!

Isn't he cute?!

This little guy is probably the cutest baby ever. Or, at least currently. :) I love babies, and I adore this one, so I’ll shut-up and just let you look at the photos. :)
Ohh, ok, so I just can’t shut-up for even a moment, but that’s beside the point!! Those are his initials, and we thought it was cute to put the foam letters on his back, and take a picture while he sat there splashing, blissfully unaware of what was going on around him.


Aren’t his eyes absolutely, totally, completely, undeniably… amazing?

Those are his first teeth, he’s now proudly sports five!!

I’m holding him on my lap right now, and one second he’s sucking his thumb like every innocent child does, and the next second he’s decided to take on typing, and win an award for the youngest speed typist.

Hope you’re having a wonderful day, lovies,

cute things I bought // and didn't need

My dad just got a job up in the Grand Coulee Dam area, driving a delivery  truck for Franz Bread, so we drove up to spend a couple days with him this past week. We found an adorable antique shop in a little town about 20 minutes from the Dam.  I found this little guy, ^ and instantly fell head-over-heels with this necklace. The owl trend is really adorable, I must admit!!

Isn’t it way too cute?!? I don’t wear watches, but I couldn’t resist this one!!!!

I  also found this leather-bound copy of Jane Eyre at Michaels in Yakima.  Books are something that I just can’t resist, especially ones I’ve come to love. My mom and I have very different opinions of this book; she thinks it’s creepy, and I love it to death!! :)

And I found this adorable note pad. Music is my thing, so it’s perfect for me.   

And, last but not least, this is a stamp, and I plan to use it on the back of all my envelopes. It is so cute!! Yes, I already tried it. In fact, I wrote a letter to a friend the day we got back, just so I could use it!!! (That and the fact that I owed her a letter. :)
How was your week, lovelies, and what's the best thing about fall? i am totally loving this weather. Rain is the best. :)

us two // in the future


One of my very best friends, Sierra,  sent me this photo in an email, and said “ I found this photo, and it reminded me of us…in the future!!”  I loved it!! It will totally be us, up until unearthly hours of the night (which are the best, by the way, for discussing story ideas.) drinking tea, eating chocolate, with Faith, her lovely cat (also the one of the two cats I actually like) hanging around in the shadows. I love friends. Especially when they put up with a lot of weirdness and randomness. And this one does!!

canning // love never fails

          Ya know, I kind of get tired of apologizing between long breaks of posting, ‘cause I’m amazing at not posting, so I guess I won’t apologize, (meaning I won’t say, imsorryiwasbusyanduninspiredandboring. Yah.) but I will say that I’ve been  busy. (Imagine that!!) Mom and I have been canning like it was going out of style, and now have almost 400 quarts of assorted food waiting to be devoured by our hungry family this winter. (random side note. Does anybody out there ever notice a word, and suddenly thinks “that word looks SO weird!” Or is it just me. Hungry is a weird word!!) Anyway, we’ve done tomatoes, cherries, pears, pear sauce, plum jam, grape juice, veggie stew, salsa, PLUS drying a bunch of pears, and making a bunch of freezer pear jam. And we are in the process of making a TON of applesauce. So that’s what I’ve been up to. Plus the normal things like reading and a little school.

     Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

       I love these verses. God’s perfect plan for love looks exactly like that. Think of what life would be like if we all loved each other like that. Unfortunately, I’m so far away from that picture of love it’s not even funny. I physically can't love like that, but God can, and that is the way he loves imperfect me. It doesn't matter what I do, his love never fails. Isn't that beautiful, and completely mind-blowing?
       Brandon Heath captures the flow of these verses perfectly, in his song Love never fails, (below) and I've been singing it a lot since I heard it sung at a wedding in July. i love to think of this as a love song from God to us, and then us singng the chorus back. Listen to this, and be blown away, people!!

     I’m excited. I’ve been saving this summer for a new camera, as mine is dying really quickly, and I picked out the one I want a few months ago. I started looking at prices, and finally mentioned it to my brother. He told me to wait to buy it until he could look in Seol, to see if he could get it any cheaper. He did last weekend and I was thrilled to learn that I can get it $100 bucks cheaper than if I bought it online here in the states. Needless  to say, I am excited!! So, sometime in the next month I’ll be getting my Canon Rebel T2i. I’m even thinking about naming it, but I’m not sure about that. It seems like fun, but kinda weird at the same time. :) I never did name the Rebel DSLR I have currently… We’ll have to think about this… lol
