This photo was taken when Noah was 5yo, Christian was 2yo and Austin was 7yo. I remember looking at them and laughing, thinking about how big they were!

They were loud, rambunctious wrastlers.

Do you know what's even better than just looking at that picture up there?

Being able to see and hear that everyday moment in our house!

Thank you, dear Lord for blessing me with these memories that I can replay, savor and smile over.

I treasure the gift.

O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good; for his mercy endureth forever.

I love it!
Benjamin is looking over my shoulder. He said "that is funny". He misses his little buddy (even though he'd say he doesn't know what "miss" means). I sure do miss that blonde haired boy. I love you Marshy! Give the boys and David a big hug for me. MWAH!

Debbie said...

I love this, too! I miss you guys so much...I love you!

I miss y'all so much! I hate that it has been since May that we've all gotten together.

Are you sure you don't want to have a compound together?! I'd even cook and clean for you!

Just give it some thought before you pooh-pooh the idea.

I love y'all Coco and Bobo! (and Lele too if she happens to be reading this).

Thanks for sharing this Marshie! I think I'll get the camera out and take some 'boring' 'ordinary' videos. They could be precious memories one day. (((HUGS))) - Deedee

Oh my goodness! I so miss when my boys were little and used to play around like that. Boys are just too much fun!

Christian is just too stinkin' cute! He looked like he was king of the brothers mountain!

love ya!

I love family moments like that! So fun and priceless.

Leanne said...

I wonder if, upon maybe seeing how much video footage you have, if you ever wondered why you had so much and so many of the boys????

For such a time as this.

Does your heart ache like mine did when I watched that video?? I'm sure it ached much more, and that makes me sad!

Praise God for the sacrifice Jesus Christ willingly gave so that we no longer had to be alienated from God and could have the assurance of Heaven one day. And even more that that, praise God that you answered His call!!!!!!

Now you're Homeward bound too....

I love you.

Makes me want to get the video camera out more often. I can imagine this is much much more precious than all the gold in the world!

I'm going to start doing more videos again. Still pictures are great, but since the opportunity is here to "experience real life," over and over again, even if it's just a memory, I'd rather have some of those than trying to rely on all of the bits and pieces I'll probably forget and that a still photo will never capture. It's such a blessing to have that footage of your boys together.
