Such an amazing gift to not only have my sister, Kathleen, at the birth, but to have this beautiful video she made for us to cherish forever. I have cried watching this more times than I can count. I love these little babies that enter our family and add so much love and sweetness. Fresh from heaven.
I realized I never posted these photos of us in the hills last fall. And I realize these are the last photos of us as a family of 5. A few more days and there will be another little boy joining this clan. I don’t ever want to forget these small moments. These small hands and short legs and silly faces. Each stage is perfect. My heart aches to see the time pass so quickly and these little people sprout before my eyes. Yet each new stage brings even more joy than the last. If that’s even possible. I am so grateful for these gifts in my life.
I took these last November as we enjoyed our first fall-winter in Sacramento. Everyone should move here, because you get 5 months of fall, then you jump straight into spring. :) I needed to post these before we’re out collecting golden leaves again and pulling out our scarves. Fall is the very best season.
*thank you to my sweet sister-in-law for snapping the group picture of us all together. :)

What a gorgeous day this was, from start to finish. Today marks Stephanie and Ben’s 1 year anniversary, and I’m still giddy over the fun details from that day. I may need to add a second post. :)
A big thanks to April Smith for being the sweetest little assistant the entire day!
