It's Off!

Piper got her cast off a few weeks ago!

 They did another x-ray and it is still fractured but they felt she could just wear a good supportive shoe and be okay.  She still can't walk on it well without a shoe, but she does great with one on.  The first week she wouldn't put any pressure on it.  She does great now!
 It took quite a bit of sawing to get that thing off.  She had a cast over a cast because the first one didn't cover the toe enough.

Whew!  Finally off and not stinky:)

It's Christmas Picture Time!

Yes! It's Christmas Picture Time!
 Of course I can't show you the ones that are on my Christmas Cards, but here are a few samples:)
I have an exciting announcement!!  I am taking a leap of faith and starting Lindsay G. Photography!!  Over the past several years many of my friends have asked me to take pictures of their family.  I delight in doing so and I want to develop this passion I have for photography.  My mission is simple: My camera, Your Journey.  I want to make your journey come alive through my lens so that you will have pictures to treasure. Whatever season of life you are in, it is worth preserving in pictures!
I am working on a blog and website, and it's taken me hours and hours so far.  So I wanted to go ahead and put this out so you can be thinking about Christmas Pictures.  I am going to offer mini-sessions on this Saturday, the 27th.  The sessions will be 30-45 mins long, until we are both happy:) The cost is $40!  That includes a CD with all the "worthy" images and you get the rights to them.  Photos are an investment.  My hope is that I can offer you quality images yet not break the budget!

  If you are interested in booking a time please email me at rnforchrist@gmail.com
  If this date doesn't work for you, we'll find one that does.

Please pray for me!  I want this endeavor to honor my Lord.

Family Photos!

On Saturday, I had the opportunity to take family pictures for my friend Eileen's Family.
They are so precious! This is Sophie. And yes, that is her real hair color:) I didn't enhance it.

CJ, Avery, and Anna Cate
Baby Sloan
The whole precious gang with Nina and Papa
Even Sister, the dog made it in some of the pictures
Love this one. They were all crying like the babies:) Especially love Anna Cate's face:)

I think this one is really sweet.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Thank you guys for letting me take your pictures. I hope they bless you!


It's one of my favorite things to do during the Holiday season, It's Shoebox collection time!
This week Samaritan's Purse begins the awesome process of collecting, sorting, and shipping millions of shoeboxes to little boys and girls all over the world.

While I have always loved doing this, this year it takes on even more meaning. Because I've seen, held and kissed the cheeks of the children who are impacted by this ministry.

Here are their faces
This is where they live

And this is where they go to school. Well, probably not the kids that live in the slums above because you have to pay for school here.
Since seeing them and loving on them, I have some suggestions for you as you pack your shoeboxes.

See this little girl? I held her like this for a long, long time. She was so happy to just be in my arms. Look at her smile!

Her shirt was absolutely filthy. I mean insanely filthy. So I am packing shirts in my shoeboxes this year. Most of the children in the slums have a shirt that's falling off of them because it's so worn out. It's dirty, has holes all in it, you get the picture. Many of the babies walk around naked.

Also, the basics really are important. A toothbrush, toothpaste and soap are definitely necessities.

Whatever else you put in there, well it's likely that's all these kids will have. I mean, the toys you give them are the only things they will own. So think about that when you give it to them. Make sure it's durable. Make sure it's going to last them. Make it fun:)
Pencils are great but they need a sharpener. Crayons are good too. Notepads. Balls. Do I even need to mention how much they like candy? Goodness they gobbled that up!

And when you are doing it. Picture their faces. Picture your Lord delighting in you doing something "for the least of these."

I sure won't be the same as I pack mine this year.

Reese and I were letting Reilly out this afternoon and she really wanted to go out.
She was excited just to be able to crawl around on the porch.

Can't believe she's almost 15 months old.

Patterson Farm

We did some serious pumpkin picking this year. Gracie's class went to Patterson on the Friday before Halloween

The girls loooove this place. They have a great playground, petting zoo, hayride, and they added even more this year!
I traded Reese for Ellie:)
The girls spent most of their time in the corn pit.

This is Gracie's class and her sweet teacher, Ms. Inpyn
Feeding the animals is always a hit
They added a Bee house! You can actually see the bees making honey...
Moriah and Gracie

And they added face painting!

And pumpkin painting. Woohoo, we didn't have to do it at home:)
