You Capture: Happy

When I discovered that this week's You Capture theme is happy--and took the boys to their music lessons that same day--I figured out pretty quickly what at least some of my photographs would involve.

A dog.

More specifically, a girl and a dog.

That's not the best photo, but you can see how happy Grace is with the music store owner's dog Katie who came to visit that day. After that, I didn't see much of Grace's face because she was reading a Fancy Nancy book to Katie

and watching Katie resting on the floor

and generally gazing adoringly at Katie.

Grace was also happy with her new wall decorations that I put around her bed. She shares a very blue room with Josiah, who once suggested that we paint two walls pink so Grace would like the room more. When he saw this new addition, he said to Grace, "Well, hello, Fancy Nancy!"

Yes, he is a really good big brother! And that makes me very happy. :)

You know what else makes me happy? Yummy pizza...

This makes several of us in this house happy

and beautiful sunsets with fake-looking clouds

right in my own back yard.

But while happiness from dogs, pink wall decorations, pizza, and even beautifully colored skies can fade, there is something that will never fade...

I'm happy from the inside out, and from the outside in, I'm firmly formed. You canceled my ticket to hell— that's not my destination!
Psalm 16:9 (The Message)

Count yourself lucky, how happy you must be—
you get a fresh start, your slate's wiped clean.
Psalm 32:1 (The Message)

That's just too cute. Grace needs a dog.

Josiah is a wonderful Brother.

The consensus is that Grace needs a dog, has a really sweet older brother, and you have a remarkable husband*

we have a lab(yellow) as well - she follows my little one around all day long- which drives the little one a bit nuts at times . Lovely last shot!

It is the simplest things that make us the happiest I think. Great photos!
