On days like this.

Written on 11/17/2010

On days like this you will find the 3 of us snuggled up inside our messy but comfy home. We usually watch channel 10 until I start throwing up (just kidding but not really) I’m usually sipping coffee trying to stay out of Isla’s direct sight. This morning I decided to make some pumpkin-mini chocolate chip-pancakes. They were as good as they sound. Vin surprised me with a new lens I have been drooling over for quite some time. In non photographer language, it’s able to take nice clear pictures in pretty low light. I don’t use a flash on my camera so a lens like this makes taking pictures inside on a gloomy day as easy as toast. In photographer language it’s the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens. I can’t wait to really get some practice with this lens! I snapped some pictures today but for times sake and the dishes piling up in my sink’s sake, I didn’t spend much time editing. Just some white balance adjustment.

Can I just mention something kinda off the subject? Cohen is an incredibly smart girl. She understands so much. Vin has been reading her the kid bible since she was a wee little thing. She’s managed to grasp so much from it. She knows and LOVES Jesus. She knows more disciples than I do, and her latest discovery of the bible is baptism. In Cohen’s words she wants to get “Baf-a-tized”. To all you pre-parents out there these moments are the most incredible part of parenting. Seeing The Lord guide your child and reach your child. It’s truly a miracle. He loves them more than we do and it’s pretty awesome to experience your little one building a personal relationship with Him!

Back to the pictures.

This is my girls in their element. Cohen on my iphone (which she knows how to work almost better than I do) and Isla wandering around with her mouth full of pirate booty (I hope it’s pirate booty, she’s been known to find strange things and eat them) And apparently Isla smelled bad and Cohen was covering up her nose with her blanket begging me to take Isla outside.

Ps. That tent makes me wanna lose my salvation every time I wake up and see it in my living room. But the girls love it. So it will stay until I find my exacto knife.

Have a cozy day!

    I love days like those! I'm headed to take poor Emma to the Doctor, but fully intend on having 'that kinda night' when we get back.
    BTW~ our tent has founds it's way into the garage – not to see the light of day of a little while. I couldn't take it any longer! Ha!

    Love the photos. My 2 year old, Sims, is a genius when it comes to using my iphone. I get little frustrated with the appointments she always sets up for me. It makes the phone ring off the hook. And I wish we had a Trader Joes here. That pumpkin pancake/waffle mix looks so good!

    Cute girls, beautiful pictures! I agree…there is something amazing about seeing Jesus in our children, and their simple childlike faith – what we are called to have!
