Family Pictures - Jones Family

One of my friends from high school asked me to take pictures of her cute family.
Even though it was incredibly freezing
they still managed to pull off some great pictures.
What an awesome family.

This picture is my favorite.

How was your Thanksgiving?
Ours was wonderful and packed full of thankfullness (nevermind that thankfullness isn't a word)
and family time.
We attended two Thanksgiving feasts.

And we ate and ate and ate.

Typical of my Bubba.

Davey made 3 batches of homemade ice cream on Sunday.
Yes, THREE.  He is wonderful.
Here's Bubba getting some ice cream from his daddy
while losing his britches. 

Here's my little indian.
Notice how he holds his pencil. Oh my goodness, he's so cute.

Playing cards with Grandma.

When you ask this little Monkey to "say cheese" this is what you get..
 Yes, it's incredibly cute and creepy at the same time. We love it.

I am Thankful for my life.
For my husband and little ones.
And for a God that has blessed us with all that we have.

Time is running out!

Only a few more days to buy items from the Ordinary Hero Blog to help us raise money for our adoption!
For more information go to this post.
Here are a few things they added to the list of things you can buy!

Awesome mug.

Hoodie in grey! adorable.

 Great teacher gift.
Or for your own Christmas tree. 

This item isn't new. I just wanted to post it again.
It comes in baby and children's sizes. 
Any little one would totally rock this shirt.
I love it.

Please don't forget to put my name, "Lizzie Barrett" in the "Add special instructions to seller" box when purchasing your shirt(s) or we won't get the funds from the shirt(s) you purchased.

That's right.

I hope ya'll are spreading the word about our hopes to adopt..

'cause we're really good parents.

"What I Am"

This is the best.  Seriously, the best. 

I fell in love with this song when my friend Rachel posted it on her blog.
Isn't it great?

Happy Thursday.

I love Thursdays.  I always have.
It's almost the weekend yet we still have time to get things done before the weekend.
I hope you are having a happy Thursday.

Here is a picture that I love from a recent session.

We headed over to a children's rodeo a few Saturdays ago.

Mason was in awe.

2 more weeks!

Only 2 more weeks to buy shirts for our cause!
(in case you're just tuning in we are hoping to adopt)
As mentioned in my post here, for every shirt from the Ordinary Hero Blog that you buy, we will receive $10 toward our adoption!
There are a bunch of families who are adopting who are participating this month and at the end of November the top 3 families that have sold the most shirts will have their adoption funds matched by Ordinary Hero!

Please help us by buying a shirt.
If you can't afford it, tell your friends.
Spread the word.
We need all the help we can get.

Please don't forget to put our name, "Lizzie Barrett" in the "Add special instructions to seller" box when purchasing your shirt(s) or we won't get the funds from the shirt(s) you purchased.

This one comes in infant and children sizes. How cute would it be to see this shirt on a baby or toddler you know!?
I would love to see an "I'm gonna change the world" shirt on my little ones.  So cute.

I. Love. This.

You could stock up on Christmas gifts while contributing to a good cause!
