One Thousand Gifts

I have been so encouraged by Ann Voskamp's blog.  I didn't know how hugely well known she was until here lately.  I thought she was just a regular Mom like me( and of course she is) but now I see her name all over the place.  When I started reading her blog it was obvious to me that she had much wisdom for her young years  Just the music alone will make you set back and relax.  I hope to get her book soon.  There are actually two books that I have been wanting to get.  This one and Large Family Logistics by Amy Brenneman.  Haven't decided on what book  I will get first, either will be great I'm sure so probably the one with the better price but for now I have decided to join others on this journey of 1000 gifts.  It's so fitting to have this on a Monday since Mondays are normally Very hard days at least for me!

Sarah, Sam and Stephen

Sarah and Sam are so sweet together. They are the closest in age in the Parris family at almost 13 months apart. While they may be close in age they are so different in their personality. Whenever a visitor comes to our home Sarah will run and say hi while Sam dives under the nearest pillow. They love to work in the kitchen (as you can tell in the picture). They love being big sister and brother to Stephen.

Hasn't he gotten so big?  He is our black- haired  blue-eyed  baby doll.
