1 Year Anniversary

Today is a big day in our lives and will be for the rest of our lives. Today is our adoption anniversary day. One year ago today we went and got Esther and brought her home. You can read the story here, it is quite a story. Oh man, have our lives changed in a year. I can't even come close to telling you how blessed we are to have Esther. She is so amazing and we can't imagine life without her. She is the perfect example of how great God's plan is for our lives. I can not imagine any greater gift than Esther and I have learned so much about myself and about true love. I can't wait to see what the years to come will be like and what kind of person she will become.

Here is our first family picture the night we got home with her and surprised our church community group.

And here we are in the same location a year later.

1 Year Pictures

Yesterday, we had some 1 year pictures taken of Esther. A friend of mine that I work with took them. She did pictures for us previously and these are the best yet. It was approximately 1,000 degrees outside. I am super happy with how they turned out, they really capture Esther well. I am especially happy that we captured the awesomeness of her eyes and her faces. And it is hard to get a good picture of Esther because she is on the move all the time and she is fast.

You can check out some of the pics on her blog. Alishia Snook Photography -
