One of my favorite days

"O night, O night, go back in flight,
And let them be my little children for just one more night."



I asked Brock to draw this picture for me 
since it's my FAVORITE one of all.

Didn't he do such an amazing job?
Tyler was only one week old here. It was a cold December morning 
and the boys were playing "detective." Brock, age 9 there, asked if 
"newborn baby could play with us." So for just a few moments I 
placed baby Tyler there with them. 

I remember looking in awe and thinking this was one of the best 
days of my life. All FOUR of my SONS together. A new beginning. 
Such wonder and gratefulness I felt. 

I still do.

Very interesting Julie. I don't see it. But there must be something there if you do.

Wow! Julie is right, Grant really does look like McKay! Brock did an awesome job with that picture. He is so talented! I do remember you showing me the photograph and telling me what they had been playing. Such cute memories!

I agree, Grant looks so much like McKay does in this picture! Such a sweet picture. As a mom, my favorite pictures are of my three kids together, having fun.
