So many faces...

I snapped this picture tonight trying to catch sweet Vivienne's early smiles on film...and I cannot stop looking at it!

There are 6 faces pictured.  That is a lot of faces!  And there is one missing!  Pax lost interest in "cheese"-ing very quickly.  I keep recounting to make sure I'm correct.  Six should look and feel like a lot of kids, yet the picture looks incomplete my entire heart is not in it.

Those eyes lead to the souls entrusted to us to rear and grow into fabulous adults.  I'd be lying if I said that there is not a heavy weight in those words.  Their beings make me feel small and over-whelmed.  But, never have I thought there are too many.  Each of them is taking a hand in shaping me into a better me, as I strive to help them grow.

Strangers stop us some curious and positive, others to ask the most bizarre and personal questions.  Those ears over hear the worlds impressions.  I hope they grow up learning to drown out the voices in the world and understand that Mommy and Daddy love and cherish everyone of them.

It has been awhile since I have been here and I hope to be back soon.  Our family has grown and once again big things are on the horizon.  A new home, new schooling...

There's the sweet smile!!!
