Part of Us

Several pictures of Reese have finally found their places in our home. It's taken time to choose just the right ones to enlarge along with the perfect mattes and frames. I love seeing her sweet face throughout the house.

Look familiar? I love how this turned out!
We love the faces of our babies in these big frames. We'll add another one when #3 arrives. ; )
I think we are going to paint over the light switch since it stands out so much.
Our family picture

Even though this will soon change, having a picture of the four of us enlarged and framed was extremely important to me. Reese will never be in another one of our family portraits even though she'll always be fully in our hearts. Although we are growing, this was our family for a cherished moment.


May Your faithful love rest on us, for we put our hope in You.

Psalm 33:22

Your photos are beautiful, each and every one. I also have my babies' faces up in big frames - maybe I'll share sometime. I love your cherished family moment - a treasure always. And the print, well you did a lovely job with it - you have beautiful taste. I still believe it was meant just for you. Thanks so much for sharing such precious treasures with us. Love you so much. Jaden and I were just praying for you :) Have a blessed week.

Beautiful pictures Katie. Another time when I reared up seeing your pictures and reading what you wrote. I am constantly reminded to be thankful for what I do every day thanks to you doing just that-working through what God has for you, sometimes really hard days included. Praying for the ache in your heart today. :)

When you get as far as the "next" family picture - An idea you could use is have the family pose and there is a framed picture of Reese on table beside you, wall behind, etc - where she subtly included in family in the precious pictures you have of her. I love the face pictures, just beautiful.

The photos are gorgeous. We don't have many family photos..but we have one when it was just the 3 of us...one from the 4 of us and still need to do the 5 of us. I love them because that was our family at that time.
I do have to mention that if you don't want to paint over your light switch you could look for a new plate cover at a home supply store. When we did our dining room, our covers stood out with the wall paper and paint, so we bought some cover plates at Lowes'. Not talented with painting and couldn't have done what we needed anyhow because of texture.

I love those big giant pictures above the chair. I bet you love going into that room.

Rebekah said...

I love all of the pictures! Where did you find the big frames? I love them!
