Hoos Family Reunion

Last weekend we had a family reunion for my Mom's Mom's side of the family.
That was fun to type :)
I have always loved spending time with these people, but now that I'm older I understand & appreciate just how blessed we have all been by being related.  God is good & here are some pictures to prove it!

Isaac riding a truck I rode as a little kid at my Grandparent's house
Landon and my cousin Jeremy doing a puzzle
Cousin Nathan helping the kids do crazy things :)
My beautiful Mother and I
The boys on one of my Grandpa's tractors

This isn't even everyone in the family.  We are quite the group!
Chance and Hadley stayed home to grade lots of papers.  How exciting....
And my sister and her hubby stayed home because she was sick :(

Coincidentally it was my Great Aunt Fracy's birthday so we were all able to celebrate together.
My cousin-in-law (is that a word) or my cousin's husband Jordan cutting the heads off of bees.  Nice!
And sweet baby Paislee sleeping in the grass.

I didn't get any pictures of it but we all fished in the pond in the side yard and tons of catfish were caught.  Just none by me or the boys :(
It was a great day that we will always remember though and I hope someday we do it again.

Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward.  For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised.
Hebrews 10:35-36

Landon's 3rd (1st) Birthday Party

Last weekend we celebrated Landon's 3rd birthday.
He's never had a birthday party because we have lived in a different state since he was born.
So this was his 1st birthday party.
He felt so special of course and loved the monster theme

And Hadley didn't get any attention all day....

Thanks to Nini for all the decorating and cupcake making :)

So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us.  God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
1 John 4:16

My 3 Year Old

At this time 3 years ago I had been snuggling this guy for 2 hours.

The birthdays of  my children are sweet moments for me, as they probably are for most parents.

As Landon celebrates with cupcakes and candles, I quietly ponder the speed of time.

Here he is at 3 years old.  It's truly amazing.

Happy 3rd birthday Landon!
Wow.  If I could stop the hands of time...I wouldn't.  Watching you grow from inside my belly to the big boy you now are has been a gift from God.  You are so full of life and so smart!  Nothing excites you more than an awesome truck or following your older brother.  You enjoy snuggling still which is something I'll be soaking up as long as possible.  You started school this month for the first time.  We've never been apart for this length of time during the week and you are doing fantastic.  When I drop you off you barely have time to say goodbye due to all the cool things to do there.  We enjoy you so much little man, your Daddy, Isaac, Hadley and I.  You are a wonderful little boy and I know God has great things planned for your life.

And I love you sweet boy.
Happy birthday.  

Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: "I am the Lord your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you in the way you should go.

Labor Day

Happy Labor Day!
We are spending the day doing homework and hanging out with the kiddos.
These pictures lately have been from my phone.  I'm not completely impressed with the quality, but the ease of getting them from phone to computer makes it worth it sometimes. 

This guy is smitten with Hadley.  Can't get enough of her!

Sewing plans!  Pattern on Etsy.

 Landon loving on Hadley.
The first 2 months of her life were hard on him.  He had been the baby up until then.  Thankfully he is warmed up to her now.  
Sorry if you follow my Instagram (@3_little_fish) and get all of these already :)

Chanciepants grading homework.  This is what I mean by low quality pictures.
If you don't hold the phone just right, it doesn't do well at all.

The earth, O Lord, is full of your steadfast love; teach me your statues!
