Sunday Pics | May To February 2017

We have never had the privilege of living in the same town as our extended family.  That's the main reason why this ole' blog got its start:  In 2007, I had just become a mom for the first time and our little Ava Grace was the first grandchild for both sides of the family.  Most of my posts were all about AG.  As technology progressed, I began to share more and more through texting.  

Each Sunday, for at least 6+ years, I have taken a pic of my girls before church and texted it to family.  We call it our "Sunday Pic".  It's nothing fancy.  I usually scream to the girls from my bathroom, "Girls, go sit on the piano for a pic." Then, I rush in and quickly snap it before we load up.  Plain and simple.

Here are some of the Sunday Pics from May to February 2017:

Gingerbread House 2016

I don't know why I cling to traditions like I do.  I love them and it's hard for me to let go of certain traditions we've kept through the years.  I had about decided that I wouldn't purchase a gingerbread house this year.  They are messy (I know what you're thinking), we throw them out soon after they are completed, they are costly (because I purchase way more candy and icing than is required). But as I was walking through Wal-Mart, the spirit of tradition lured me to a display of kits.  

The kids love it and I love that they love it!

The tradition lives on!
