smile & say cheese!...

Standing still & smiling to take a picture. It's a learned practice, not to be taken for granted. Recently I've figured it out!

And OH, the smiles that get captured!

Like the scrunched nose & face one... (ouch! that one looks like it hurts!) :)

Notice this sweet smile with the shoulder raised... :)This weekend we were SO blessed to see 2 sets of our former RUF students from Texas Tech. Josh & Chelsea (pictured here) are in the D.C. area for an internship & drove over to our place for a fun overnight. Being with them made Mommy miss all of our old friends & students from Lubbock. There is just something so healing about laughing with friends about old times together, wouldn't you agree?

We LOVE seeing our students long after they graduate from RUF getting connected into local churches, loving the Lord and reaching out where they are. Both couples we saw this weekend are wonderful examples of God's grace. The measure of success for a campus ministry like RUF doesn't really come until 10, 15, 20 years down the road until we see what kind of teachers, doctors, businessmen, elders, moms & dads it produces.

And Josh & Chelsea got me this GREAT book that I'm obsessed with now because the animals move as you turn the pages! (please also notice the ability to stand and "model" the book for a picture, too...)

And I'm not the only one on my street figuring out this picture taking thing! SMILE!!
