Embracing Parenthood....

Just found a cool blog where Emily encourages mothers to get on the other side of the camera. She wants her kids to have pictures of them with her *which for most moms doesn't happen.

I think this is a grand idea and have decided to take part of it when I can.

Here's her site:
Embracing parenthood has been the biggest adjustment, blessing and challenge of our lives.
We are gradually figuring it out, but knowing it's a journey we've got lots more to figure out!
Father's Day was such a delight because I have soo many great men to celebrate. I stayed up late the night before Father's Day finishing his gift. Yep, that is soo me. It was a video of pictures of him and the kids. It was soo great and I loved how it turned out. I wish I could show you. It was precious!
Here is the Embrace the Camera picture. Me and my little man at my parent's for Father's Day.
I love this one of Emerson (niece) and Fynn (nephew). Don't worry we didn't actually let them ride around by themselves!
My Daddy and me!

LOVE love LOVE this sweet picture of my girl. Isn't that background great.
a VERY full Nana's lap. : )
The next day we went over to Scott's moms for some family time.
Here is our little man and Daddy in the pool.
Our nephew Jayden coming down the slide.
Here are the cousins. They have a lot of fun together!
so cute.
This is little man jumping off diving board. You can't see it because of the hearts, but he has goggles and a snorkel. Someone should tell him he's not deep sea snorkeling off Key West or anything. He would have flippers on, but they kept falling off! : )

Here is Grandaddy Herman and baby girl.

Sadly, we didn't get to see Grandaddy Jeff. We miss him bunches and love him too! We are very blessed to have such great fathers in our lives.

Especially, this one!
Words can't describe what happens in my heart every time I see this man playing, cuddling and just being a GREAT Daddy to my babies. Makes me fall in love with him all over again!

Hope everyone had a great Father's Day and please go check out Embrace the Camera!

I just clicked over from Emily's blog. I love that you are fostering/adopting! My oldest is adopted and is now almost 15. We've been in foster care for 5 years. Crazy life with lots of ups and downs, but we love it! I love all your photos. You've got a beautiful family!

Hello!
Oh my goodness, thank you so much for commenting on my Embrace the Niece post! I can't believe she will be 10 tomorrow *tear*. I am from London Ky, which is close to TN on 75. Which part of KY are you from! I love meeting other KY gals. We've got to stick together. I am living in Ohio right now and I miss KY with every bone in my body!

Thanks again for the comment and can't wait to hear from you!
