time with cousins

It has been a long time since I’ve posted pictures of my nieces here. I think it is about time you see them again.

They were coloring and then her cousin went upstairs and she wasn’t happy about that… ISO 100, f/2.8, 1/200

Retaliation. Not really.  ISO 250, f/2.8, 1/800

ISO 250, f/2.8, 1/640

We had a make shift room upstairs in the studio for a guest over the weekend. It isn’t permanently like this, but we are enjoying it for the time being. ~ ISO 250, f/2.8, 1/500

“Mom, she’s pulling me off the bed again!” ~ ISO 125, f/2.8, 1/125

ISO 100, f/2.8, 1/200 ~ ISO 100, f/2.8, 1/200

ISO 100, f/2.8, 1/200

ISO 100, f/2.8, 1/160

ISO 100, f/2.8, 1/320

Don’t worry, the coloring items were promptly removed ~ ISO 100, f/2.8, 1/200 both

Little One is healing so well. She lets me kiss those sweet lips now! ~ ISO 320, f/3.2, 1/200

Yay for cousins that can just drop by…so grateful.

    Thanks! Love your blog, after 3 years of following you, my husband just assumes I am talking about a cousin or family me member when I update him on what’s going on with you and yours. Hah!
    Thank you for sharing your journey, your beautiful family (how can I raise kids like yours?), your craftiness, and your faith. I appreciate your openness and warmth. Your blog is a nice escape when my teething 9 month old is finally napping 🙂

  • Alice H - They are all such beautiful little girls! I love the bond that you can see between them. And I love Little One’s hair! Don’t ever let her color it. EVER!! It is the most beautiful dark hair I’ve seen in awhile!
