Day 252

© 2010 Carrie Morris

I'm so grateful to live in a country that honors it's veterans.
I'm grateful for my many freedoms and liberties that
those veterans have fought and sacrificed for in the past
and that are still fighting today. I pray that I never take
the freedoms I enjoy for granted. Thank You to the
many men and women, past and present, who have
secured my freedoms for me.

Olivia is wonderful.
She is so sweet and so cute.
There are moments she likes to
push every button I have to test her
boundaries, but I understand it's a
part of her growing and learning.
I know our house would feel hollow
and empty without her.
I love her.

I have to laugh at this picture.
Tagen loves to play in Olivia's underwear.
Everyday she brings me a pair and wants
to wear it. I finally gave in and put them
on her. It gave me quite a good laugh
for the day and made her quite happy.

I love this picture.
Tagen LOVES being with her daddy.
She squeals with delight when he gets
home from work and doesn't let him out
of her sight. She's content to sit by his
side just be with her daddy.
It makes me so happy.

I love a great summer rain storm.
This was taken right after the rain had ended.
It's often the most beautiful part of a storm...
just after you've made it through the downpour,
the sun comes back out and lights the sky.

Day 234

I want to call this picture "Wall Flowers."
They remind me of a bunch of girls leaning
against the wall during a dance waiting for the
teenage boys to come ask them to onto the floor.
The whole time not knowing how intimidating
the group of them together in all their beauty
is to the poor teenage boys.
I'm so grateful I'm not a teenager anymore.
