Fall Family Fotos

Last week, on our way home from a short trip to our college town of Lynchburg, VA, we took a short detour in rural VA to visit our amazing friends, the Lawler family, at Faith Farm. Tricia loves the idea of living on a farm, Gwyneth loves checking out the animals, and it was a perfect location to grab some great family photos!

























BTW, if you love farming, barnyard animals, hard-working people, and incredible southern food, do yourself a favor and read This Article about the Lawlers' journey from south Jersey to central Virginia.

Awesome pictures, as usual, Nate. There's a couple of them on there that look alot like blog headers...not saying anything is wrong with the one you have, they're just really nice.

These are precious photos. What program do you use to edit the photos? I have CS3 and I am still learning all the tricks to it. I had PS 7.0 last. You all bring such joy to my heart. Every Time I check your blog I Praise God for the joy of Gwen and Tricia and you. My husband is applying at Duke for his doctoral degree. We live in Texas right now, so that will be a big move for us. But with Duke Medical near by I know I will be taken care of and it will actually be a relief for be somewhere cooler in weather. I would love to see any Touristy shots you have? You might have to post a "Tour Blog" of where you live. Blessings to you all!

Gwyneth is beautiful!! She is growing up so much, she looks so much like a little girl and not a baby or toddler anymore! I can't believe she is going to be 3 in just a few short months!! God is great isn't He =]

Allison said...

LOVE the pictures:) You have a beautiful family! I have not posted on a long time, but wanted you to know that I started following your blog when Gwyneth was born. I have loved following your story of God's faithfulness!

I have to say for the record that I have never met your family in person; I only know of you guys through your website. With that said, I absolutely adore your little family! It is so obvious that the Lord has blessed you guys, and somehow I can see in your faces that you don't take those blessings for granted. Thank you for your unspoken testimony to His goodness! Happy Thanksgiving, and thank you for being an encouragement to me! :)

You are a beautiful family and your blog encourages me more than you can imagine. I needed a lift from the Holy Spirit this morning, and these pictures helped provide. Thank God for you and your witness for LIFE and love and Christ!

Been a long time since I've visited your blog (although i have been reading it since before Gwyneth was born).

So many great pictures of you guys. Gwyneth has truly grown to be such a beauty.

I loved looking at the many shots of her sweet face, daddy holding and loving on her and mommy with her tender embrace.

Such a beautiful family God has blessed you with :)

Penny said...

Tricia looks so good, healthy and GORGEOUS and I don't know that I've ever known of a daddy who loved his girls more than you do. Destiny

Your photos bring tears to my eyes! What wonderful family treasures! Your lovely ladies are beautiful and you look pretty darn good too, Nate. Thanks for keeping us filled in on what is going on in your lives. I'm not a Facebook fan, so your blog is what I read. Don't forget about us! My prayers are with you.

I've read your blog from before Gwenyth's birth, but this is the first comment I've ever made. These are by far my favorite pictures of your family. Your wife is gorgeous and Gwenyth could not be any cuter! You all look truly happy. Your story has been a blessing to read, and thank you for sharing it.

Tressa said...

Awwww, you have much to be thankful for this fall! Your family is beautiful!!!

Sabrina said...

I have to ask, where is the blonde hair in the families? I have dark hair, and my husband's hair is almost black, and we have a dark brown haired son, an almost black haired daughter, and a blonde daughter. People ask me all the time where the blonde is...both of our Moms are blonde. She's gorgeous, your family is beautiful, and you are all truly blessed!

LOVIN" these pictures..you guys are just beautiful!!

I saw this discussion in the comments section on another CF blog, and was curious about yours and Tricia's opinions on it.
This family has four children, three of which have CF. They continued to have more children, even after finding out that their first child had CF, despite doctors telling them that they would likely pass on the CF disease to their future kids. They ended up passing it on to three of the four kids so far. They feel that their kids have a right to have siblings so they feel justified to keep having more kids despite possibly passing on CF to them.
