Cowboy Boots and Boys

I started this post a number of days ago, but Blogger would not let me add photos. So I saved it as a draft and am finally able to post the photos. These are of DS #2 ...although each of our sons could well be in the photos! They all love the cowboy boots!

Journaling reads: Cowboy boots and little boys....they sure seem inseparable in our family. The first pair of cowboy boots were a hand-me-down to Caleb from friends, then we found the next pair at a Goodwill in Texas while visiting Grandma & Grandpa. A really small pair was found in Oklahoma at a Salvation Army Thrift Store. Peter wore those until they were too small; we are now saving them for Sarah. The pair that you have on were a find at a garage sale. The two other larger pairs of boots have been worn out to an almost unwearable state with holes aplenty and stitching broken. Cowboy boots are a wonderful way to enter the realm of imagination and boyhood!

I found the quote when reading a small book that I picked up this summer. We sure love cowboy boots...too bad he wasn't wearing his cowboy hat at the same time....

Thanks for looking.

Couldn't resist taking a sleeping photo.

Journaling reads:
Sleeping -- just a word for recharging when the one sleeping is 1 1/2 years old.. I just love how you tuck your legs and your arms underneath you when you sleep. Your little bottom sticks up and you sleep and dream away. Do you dream of playing with your brothers, being held in your mother’s arms, hugging you daddy or seeing a dog walk by our home?

Long Time No Blog...

It's been a long time since I posted here. We are in the midst of some repainting and changing things around at our home. So my computer time has been a bit more limited and blogging has gone by the wayside. But I have scrapped. So now to share my latest creations.

Journaling reads: A little girl without much hair what a blessing! You are four months old and the joy of your mother and daddy and brothers (and they are your joy)! In fact, Joy is your middle name. You have found your fingers and toes and you are smiling and loving life! Your eyes seem to have turned brown, just like your oldest brother Caleb’s. May you continue to grow in wisdom and stature.
