Right now our little Decker family consists of two humans and two doodles. And we wanted to capture that and remember this wonderful season of life.
Our talented and Jesus-loving friends, Kaylee & Patrick, from Chasen Grace took family pictures for us a few weeks ago on the last nice fall day of the year. The leaves were perfect, it was SO warm outside and our two naughty doodles were on their best behavior.
We HIGHLY recommend using Chasen Grace if you need any kind of photography. Their creativity, eye, and patience was unending. We could not have pictured more wonderful final photos even if we tried.
It was so much fun finding cute spots around Golden (our favorite town ever!) and getting to capture our lives at this stage. We'll frame these pictures, give them away, and load our Christmas cards up with black goldendoodle love...but mostly be thankful for photography that can make a season stand still and we will be SO grateful for later!
I just actually placed a big Christmas card order over at Shutterfly and paid a ridiculously low price for all of them. Also recommend that company for cards if you need them soon!
As for us, we are just plugging away at life these last few weeks. I've been working with the kiddos over at Children's every week and still LOVING that gig. Ryan was at a three day conference retreat last week and gained so much knowledge and information from speakers like the President of Compassion International and the CEO of Life Water.
We have still been loving no internet at our house. We went on a late night snowy walk two nights ago, I beat my husband at Ticket To Ride last night, and tonight I bet we will watch an episode of Lost on DVD and build a big fire.
FYI it has been less than 2 degrees the last day or so in Golden. It HURTS to go outside-ha! And it looks like another snow storm is moving in overhead this afternoon so I am headed home after this library trip to make vegetarian chili, sweet cornbread, healthy crustless pumpkin pie and cozy up our house for a night in.
We are also putting together our Operation Christmas Child boxes with my mom next week so ideas and photos to come soon on that. Boxes are due Nov 17-24 so start up that if you are joining us this year in such a beautiful ministry
Happy beginning of the holiday joy, coziness, and excitement!
And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus ever knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth...
