Beautiful Days

Come and see what God is done, how awesome his works in man's behalf! Psalm 66:5

Playing catch-up, as usual.

So I know I'm just getting progressively worse at blogging. Seriously, though, finding the time to take, upload, edit and post pictures and then make cutesy comments about each one is not high on my priority list these days. It ranks somewhere between mopping the kitchen floor (which I haven't done in weeks) and taking a luxurious bath (which has not happened in recent recorded history.)

The girls are growing up fast. I put Hattie in an onesie today that I could've sworn I just put Edy in a few months ago. Which reminds me that Hattie is 6 months old today. Amazing.

Edy is turning into quite the ham. She loves an audience. I can't imagine where she gets that from.

The girls are becoming great friends. They even have the same taste in accessories.

Edy made a killing at the annual Hall Easter get-together, and we hid and re-hid our eggs at home until they were terribly rotten. Elly enjoyed them then.

Hattie sampled her first solid-ish foods. She didn't much care for rice cereal or mashed potatoes, but sweet potatoes were a hit.

I took this sweet adorable-ness of Edy and her best buddy, Gibson, just before they rode off into the sunset on a train bound for Winslow, Arkansas. We got tickets to go along with my mom's annual train ride for all the kids in the H.I.P.P.Y. program. They loved it, but they love each other more. :)

We attempted some family photos. Between Edy's ridiculous faces and Hattie's blank stares, this was the best one. I think it captures us well.

And finally, we are just beginning to get to harvest some of our own delicious honey right out of our backyard. Josh (in the bee hat) and our kind friend and bee expert, Bo Nall, were checking on our hive here. We should have gallons of delicious honey soon. Come visit us and have some!
