the ring bearer
isaac was a ring bearer last night in the wedding of my friends and fellow youth group leaders, adam and leah. leah also did a bit of babysitting for isaac in my tutoring days, so she’s one of his favorite people on the planet. anyhow, i captured approximately one good shot of the cute boy […]
happy birthday annababy!!
today is anna’s first birthday. in fact, one year ago RIGHT NOW, i had a one hour and seven minute old baby. i didn’t know yet if she was going to be another isaacbaby (the kind of baby that makes you strongly consider stopping making babies). or if she was going to be a sweet […]

last weekend, we loaded up the lid kids and headed down to the mooresville/statesville area of north carolina to patterson farms for some pumpkin patchy fun. we went two years ago, with a wee little isaac toddler, and it was a lot of fun, so we were excited to head back with both kids in […]
