The Beauty of the Earth

A couple weeks ago we had an amazing sunset, and I just had to share! Aren't we blessed to live in such a beautiful land created by such a loving Heavenly Father? :)

A Dream Come True!

This Halloween was a Dream Come True for me!! I have been wanting to dress the children as the "Four Seasons" for ages! Some good friends in FL dressed as the Four Seasons years ago, and I've been gradually grooming the children to accept the idea, and finally this year it worked! I also thought it would be so fun if I dressed as Mother Nature and Brian (the hum-bug) was Father Time! However, only part of that dream was realized...Brian said he would wear a watch and that was it!!! Oh well, we still had a great time coming up with the costumes!!

Our sunny, energetic Summer!! She was so excited to go Trick-or-Treating this year, and she outlasted all the other children :)

Our lovely Spring! This outfit was an old ballet costume that we revised! The rain boots were a last minute choice (I didn't think about shoes), but they are "Springy"...right? April showers? ;)

Winter (a.k.a. Jack Frost) turned out great!! The snowflakes on his shoulders are battery-operated lights that we poked through the fabric of the jacket. BTW, we found the suit at a second hand store for under $5 total, so I didn't feel bad about painting it and poking holes in it :)

The beautiful season of Fall...

Group photos with a close-up of my Mother Nature Crown, which is a little over the top, but it's how I envisioned it looking (when Brian first saw it, he called me a "Dork!")
