Family Pictures {2017}

I promise you, if it were not for Grace Hill Photography we would nev-er have family pictures.  NEVER! These pictures were an impromptu, quick 10 minute photo shoot over Thanksgiving.  The Mr. & I think this might be our favorite set of pictures because they truly capture our family as it is right now with two very active, and chatty, toddlers.  Somehow when she takes our pictures I forget about all of the toddler-isms, the dust bunnies, the boogers wiped on my leggings, how absolutely exhausted I am, the finger smudges and just general grime that is everywhere, & instead I just can't help but smile at this batch of blessings God has graced me with.  We're in an exhausting phase, but we're also in a very fun phase and these pictures remind me of that.  Thank you Grace really are the. best.edits-0074edits-0001edits-0003edits-0004edits-0008edits-0011edits-0015edits-0021edits-0022edits-0028edits-0029edits-0031edits-0034edits-0040edits-0043edits-0044edits-0046edits-0050edits-0052edits-0058edits-0059edits-0061edits-0063edits-0065edits-0066edits-0067edits-0070

Send Me Your Prayers

I don't think there is a better way to start the year than with prayer.  If you've been around LWTH for a while, you've probably seen the button on the sidebar to the right for prayer requests, but if you're new make sure that you check it out. 

Something that has been such a treasure with blogging is meeting new people and praying for them.  I have met so many people, made so many friends, prayed for so many people & had the privilege of watching the Lord work in the lives of others for the past NINE years!  (Can you believe LWTH is almost 10 years old?!) 

I think there is not better time than the new year to remind you that we are always praying for our readers.  If you have a prayer or a praise for the new year, please allow us to lift you up!  You can click on the button on the side bar or click here to submit a prayer request for the new year.  I want to use this blog as a way to serve others, to serve you and your prayer requests, for whatever has been placed on your heart, for the big things and the small things, for every joy and every storm you’re walking through.Prayer Request button

You don’t have to log in or create a password, simply fill out the form here with your prayer request, and I will pray over your request.  I will keep this form active forever so you can update your prayer requests & submit more whenever you’d like.

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions,

prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people”

1 Timothy 2:1

Christmas Cocoa with My Babies

Trying to savor every moment with these littles. These were taken just a few days before Christmas, and I am absolutely smitten!

Sheldon's Shenanigans- Elf on the Shelf 2017

Before Christmas is too far behind us, I want to write this down for ideas for myself, and maybe for you too, this coming up year.  I know A LOT of parents that really hate on the Elf on the Shelf because it is time-consuming, but it really has been nothing but something fun we do in our home.  I don't go out & buy anything for it; I just use what we already have and it's really fun and easy.  (Here was what Sheldon was up to in 2016).  Here is what Sheldon got into this year:Elf on the Shelf Ideas 2017- Life with the HawleysDSC_0015DSC_0007DSC_0016DSC_0023DSC_0036DSC_0066DSC_0074DSC_0134DSC_0236DSC_0238DSC_0266DSC_0274DSC_0321DSC_0325DSC_0327DSC_0369DSC_0397DSC_0414DSC_0416DSC_0466DSC_0470DSC_0483DSC_0528DSC_0529DSC_0554DSC_0619
