Fall Family Photo Shoot and Thanksgiving

I have felt like life has been so busy lately....and it is not going to slow down any time soon. I have been trying to choose the important things in my life and let some of the not so important things go in hopes of making the important things more enjoyable!!! I have also tried to make myself not worry or stress and enjoy life as it is happening....I know...much easier said then done!! My MOPS group is discussing How To Be a Positive Mother, so I have also tried to think more positively and rid my life of all the negative things...another thing that is easier said then done. One thing that doesn't seem to get less stressful is having Reese's pictures taken. Unfortunately for me, she has been in four photo shoots in the past couple of months. This is the expression that seems to be used the most in the photo shoots.

My how I hope this phase goes by quickly. Here is a family, fall shoot that my bro-in-law, Tyler, did for us. We were able to get a few good shots but most of the shots contain Reese with the oh so famous expression. Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot.

I will be sharing some of my favorite pictures from the other photo shoots over the next few days (since I am way behind on posting them on here).
Yesterday at church, the pastor shared some Thanksgiving verses with us and this one really stuck out to me. It goes right along with the lower stress and positive outlook I am trying to incorporate into my life.
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Phil. 4:6-7
And since this is one of my dad's favorite verses, I thought I would include it as well.
Finally, bethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy-meditate on these things. Phil. 4:8
