Hands are intriguing to me.  I kind of catch myself staring at my husband’s hands a lot.  They make me feel protected, comforted, and loved.  We’ve been married almost 20 (twenty?!?!) years and I still get warm fuzzies when he gently holds my hand when we are walking or just watching tv.  I also adore my children’s hands.  I still make my 5 year old hold my hand when we cross the street.  Not because I don’t think he has learned how to do it carefully, but mostly because it gives me an excuse to have him right next to me and reach out for my hand ;-).

Chubby little toddler hands are just some of the best.  Love that this little sweetie decided to play peek-a-boo just when I snapped the shutter.  Perfect ;-).

    What a great shot! The lighting is perfect on that adorable model…and I love the texture of the rocks behind her.

We added another double digit child to our house.  Wow.  How is that possible??  This guy is so handsome (I’m not biased or anything), and I think one of his all time favorite things to do is make people laugh.  Combo of those 2 = quite a charmer ;-).  He faced the challenge of making new friends at his new school with no problem. Keep laughing, bud!  Your tender heart and kind smile lights up a room… never let that go.

We celebrated with ice cream one day, then a little bowling and cake another day.  Its fun to stretch out birthdays as much as you can.  Especially when you turn 10.
