Sing Your Song!

“Most men lead lives of quiet desperation
and go to the grave with the song still in them.” 
~ Henry David Thoreau

I am SO thankful that I am not raising children who will ever find this quote to be true. They are all very self aware - and not afraid of voicing their songs - happy or sad. (Wonder where on EARTH the little darlings got that trait?)

At this point I could really embarrass them with corny videos of lip syncing and dancing...and rough housing around. I have plenty footage of them being dramatic and silly. Literally and figuratively singing their songs.

No dying with any songs still in these kids. They proudly stand for what they think or feel. And I hope it serves them well forever! that end.... I thought I'd share some recent pictures and moments of happiness with my kids. For my children are, above all else, the greatest song I'll ever sing...

Gracey on her youth ski trip. Love that face!
Such a silly girl! Sadie with her present at Christmas..

Yep. He's a Marine. We live in Texas. We like guns.

Gracey (and poor Blake!) at the same concert.
It's good to have big brothers!
