Another Post?!

Tammy took pictures of us last night at ACU and, don't ya know, she's already gotten up a slideshow and gotten us our proofs! All of you can go here to see the slideshow she created - it's incredible. She is so talented - I'm lucky that she'll even take pictures of families anymore. I've watched the show a few times.....

If you notice, Abbie isn't showing her teeth is some of the shots. She told us after, through her tears, that she didn't have a pretty smile. What??!! I was trying hard not to bawl. The idea that this beautiful little girl didn't have a pretty smile! Abbie has said before that's she's shy. I don't know shy - I never been shy. I've been insecure but that was at 13 when all girls hate everything about themselves.

Love them both more than more my luggage.

What can I say? Tammy is amazing but look what she had to work with! A very amazing, beautiful family. I love you all. Abbie your smile is BEAUTIFUL and it's okay to be shy. You have so many talents! You do to Kenny, except you aren't shy!

Well. . .all Abby has to do it look at the photos Tammy took of her. She is beautiful and precious--and some of my favorites are the candid shots of her with Kenny when they are both smiling and just being siblings.

What a great job!

I have to admit that I have tears rolling down my face. Those pictures were amazing!! There were so many that were PRECIOUS I am wondering how you are going to choose! Tammy is AMAZING. The things that she captures is more than I can say. Talented is not even the right description for her! And I agree with roxanne. Those close ups of Abbie is BEYOND proof that she is beautiful.

SO wonderful Denise. I have tears in my eyes! (But then again I'll probably be a Walgreen's buying Midol and chocolate some time in the next few days too)

Did I tell you how much I loved Jacob's Dream when we were out there last May? Made me want to pack up my family and get a job in Abilene. A school that would devote their resources to such a wonderful testimony to God's goodness has its priorities in place.

I absolutely LOVED the pictures. I miss y'all!

I watched your slideshow, Denise, and loved every ONE of the pictures.

Your daughter is really pretty and has a beautiful smile. Tell her Miss Dee said that. I'm sure it will make her day!?!

I love the setting, too. My mom took me there on my last trip out and it was a gorgeous Sunday morning and just fabulous. ACU did a wonderful job on all of it.

If I were you, I'd have to take every photo and make a book out of them all to keep!

Cheers & Blessings to you all today! Dee

Wow! The pictures are amazing. I love the kids, but I have to say that looking at you and Jim with so much love for each other was just the neatest thing to see. What precious pictures and memories these will be for you and your children and their children etc....

By the way, that is one of my all time favorite songs "He Reigns!" Hallelujah!!

Great pictures -- but maybe you should have given us a PG rating. Jonathan was watching it and said, "I can't believe we saw them kiss! Why would they kiss in a picture? That's gross. It's embarrassing." Actually, it was sweet (but certainly not shy).

Poor Abby... Megan doesn't like her ears. I tried to convince her otherwise, but she hasn't been convinced yet.
