Every morning Ryan leads us in a family devotional,
we sign a praise and worship song,
and then we pray together for our day.

Normally Eden is still sleeping,
but this morning she was up
and joined us at the dining room table.

We tend to a bit get distracted by her,
but she makes us all laugh
and giggle,
so her little distraction is good sometimes,
I think God laughs a bit at her too :)

This morning I was able to snap a couple of pics of her
at prayer time,
where she's praying...

and then I caught her peeking... :)

She makes us smile :)


I'm heading to a field trip with Tessa's class today
to the apple orchard.

Have a fab friday!

PS. A little story I want to share..I just found your blog a couple of days ago and the "Vintage Pearl" page, I own one of your lovely necklaces I bought a while back...anyways, after I joined your site I saw your add in the Parenting magazine. I just wanted to say, "How cool is that!" Congratulations on your success!

I just had to stop in and say how much I adore your blog. Very rarely does something slow me down long enough to catch my FULL attention but I just can't stop peaking in to see what's new at the pearl!
