I love seeing the kids sitting on the floor in the store and reading. Mine used to do that. And that first picture is amazing.

Becky, you have truly developed your style, so much so that I think I could see one of your photos anywhere and know it was yours. And I LOVE your style; it speaks to my heart. Not full of props and so light and bright that it hurts my eyes. Just real, and alive. When you look back in a decade or two, you'll have no problem remembering the moments that mattered; you'll be able to "be there" all over again. So will Kaish, and it will be your most precious gift to him. Well, besides your love.. :<)

Love the big bright Toys R Us with the little clearance blowout in the window, and the sweet doll house! And the boys.

Now I wish I would have played with Bethany's doll house before I let her sell it. :-)

Man, that quote is just so true!! Love the pics too...as always :) And Brrrrr!! That snow
makes me cold looking at it!

Skeller said...

can I just say how happy it makes me to see your guys in a *toy store* enthralled by *books* !!!

true story: last week I took my boys to Barnes & Noble to use a gift card they got for Christmas. it took me a goodly amount of time to entice my littlest guy to leave the TOYS to look at the books. WHY (??!!) do book stores carry toys?!?!?

happy Monday Becky!
