Full Weekend of Photoshoots, Family & Editing

When Monday roles around it is always a bummer, but I am thankful for an awesome weekend that was FULL and wonderful. I had mini-sessions and full-sessions for photography totally 5 sessions on Saturday. It was tiring but SO worth it. Here is one of my favorite sneak peeks:

Christina... she is a dancer!

It was a super fun time and you can check my photography blog this week for the sneak peek blog posts!

On Sunday we had a wonderful morning at church with a LOT of ladies registering for {em-pou-er}... we are blown away by how God is working in this event. Can't wait for Saturday! 

Then... my daddy's side of the family celebrated Christmas/New Years. It was a blast seeing everyone, each time I am amazed at how the kids keep growing up. Jonna & I are the babies of the "first cousins" so we always were with the "second cousins". Here are two of our NEWEST second cousins: Ramaron & Jarel:

Aren't they the CUTEST?? They were born preemies and now they are chunks!

Some of you may have thought my sweater was cute... psych! We did ugly sweater contest. I think Jonna (my sis) un-officially won. She had kitty's hanging off hers with fish. Too funny!

Here is our Lenzen/Thurston/Future Cross Family! All decked out!

Favorite picture of the day... ha! Sister & Kyle.

We ended playing a second chance santa game... so fun! Joshy and I got some sweet gifts. :-)

Such a full weekend! We are thankful for family and even though we don't see them all very often it is always a blessing when we do. :-) Happy New Week --- It's another full one.
Here is my verse of the week: "Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you!" Psalms 55:22
