My men…

Filed under: Just Because — Char @ 12:50 pm

I am crazy about these guys…


As a mother, I want to protect, nurture, and snuggle with my boys. Andrew thinks the world of his boys, but will show it in different ways. He will push, challenge, encourage, take them backpacking, wrestle, and make them into basketball players if at all possible….and has way more patience than I do with their little boy craziness.  =)

My goal for this photo was to capture and represent Andrew as a proud, strong Dad leading the way for his boys.

Poor Corde has his little face all scrunched…was not to happy about being disturbed from his nap.

It was taken on a warm October afternoon when Corde was less than one week old and I think I will always love it.


  1. your men are amazingly cooperative!

  4. Excellant job on this picture.
    I would say your goal of representing Andrew as a strong dad leading his boys was done well.
    You are blessed to have 3 precious boys but they are just as blessed to have wonderful Godly parents!
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
    Be blessed
