What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Some Ladies

Saturday, I met up with these ladies for a morning of Farmer's Market shopping and, in my case, watching. The children stayed with Papa, a favorite activity of theirs, which left my hands empty enough for a camera and my eyes able to fix in a lens rather than dart about counting heads. It was fun!
Before we left, I physically forced them to stop in front of my camera and smile for a picture or two, sometimes even forcing them down on their knees, much to their delight, as you can imagine. Wha ha haha .

My mom

My sister

niece. :-)

The pictures are great. I am so glad that you had some fun together, just being girls. It is so wonderful to get away for a bit. After all, you never what is coming around the next bend.

These are very nice shots Rebecca! It made me realize how beautiful Samantha is (even though I already knew it, these pics just reminded me!) :)

It sounds like a lovely way to spend a day together - just mom and the "older" girls. Your family is very photogenic. I especially love the last picture of Samantha -- such beautiful eyes!!!
