Let It Snow!

Last Thursday, Chris, Beckett, and I flew to Denver for the wedding of a longtime friend of ours. I grew up with Clint (from 5th grade on), and Chris and Clint became great friends in college. I love seeing the way the Lord brings people together in marriage. It is really such a gift!

So we headed out early Thursday morning, and by the time we woke up in Littleton on Friday, the snow was covering the ground, and there was no sign of it letting up. It was so beautiful! I love the way freshly fallen snow looks and how it almost sparkles in the sun. Isn't God so creative?!? So, of course, we had to take advantage of getting pictures with our sweet baby boy with the very first snow of his life.

{By the way, it's really hard to keep your eyes open when snow is falling on your eyelids. And, even without the sun out, it is super bright!}

Of course, people in Texas would be extremely ill-equipped to deal with 2 feet (yes, TWO FEET) of snow, but those people that reside in Colorado don't even think twice about keeping their plans. It was slightly crazy to me! I am used to things shutting down over a dusting of snow! This is what Clint's backyard looked like on Saturday morning, wedding day!

How beautiful is that! I seriously think it was the perfect backdrop for a Colorado wedding. It was definitely really cold, but we managed to stay inside for most of the three and a half days we were there.

The wedding was gorgeous and such a sweet ceremony. The reception was lots of fun, too. I am so happy for Clint and Hailey, and I am excited to see the ways the Lord uses them to bring His kingdom here to the earth.

I have only like 2 pictures from the wedding. I'm so bad about bringing my camera with the intention of taking lots of pictures, and somehow I come away with almost none. I will just blame it on the fact that I am trying to be in the moment with the people around me :)

Here are my handsome boys before the wedding. 2 of the 3 loves of my life.

And the three of us...

We definitely missed Micah. She stayed with my parents, had a total blast, and hardly missed us. As much as I would've loved to bring her along, I cherish the times with just my little man. Sweet memories!

Big Day

Yesterday was a big day for the Field kiddos. Lots of new things happened around here, and it was a pretty fun day.

First, Micah got her very first haircut. I stuck it out with the mullet for quite a while, but we just decided it was time to trim up the back a little to make the fact that the sides don't grow quite so fast less noticeable. It was hard to part with the precious curls that formed as her hair got longer and longer in the back...especially for her daddy. But it's really not a drastic change, but I like it. And, Micah did awesome! My hairstylist cut it, and I love her. She is so wonderful, and Micah was a pretty big fan too. She sat still in her daddy's lap and enjoyed holding a comb, or two :)

In the chair with a puppy cape...she liked "combing" the puppies' hair!



Love it!

Yesterday was also a big day for Beckett! He tried his first bite of big boy food. We gave him some rice cereal, and he was definitely a fan. I shouldn't be surprised considering he pretty much rolls with the flow and loves almost anything. He's such a sweet boy. Here are pictures of his first taste...

Just for kicks, here was Micah's first reaction to cereal...

And Beckett's...

Beckett also sat up unsupported for the first time yesterday! He's still pretty wobbly, but I cannot believe he's big enough to sit up. Where has the time gone?!?

Told you we had a big day! We are loving living life with our two sweet kiddos!
