SOOC Saturday..........

Slurping Life

This was from an impromptu trip to the great outdoors otherwise known as our back yard or rather Gods Big Back Yard which also happened to be the bible school theme this past summer! ;)

Jophie has truly found this new facination with the outdoors. He loves the sunshine and the breezes on his face however, his biggest facination and honestly has always been is looking up into the trees or rather up through them and, the closer you can get him the better. He even used to do this as a baby when he was small enough to lie under our Christmas tree. He'd look up through the branches for hours with the tree lights on of course!

Speaking of......

Our tree goes up the day after halloween! Yep you read that right!

Let me just say it one more time in case you think your eyes have failed you.

Our tree goes up the day after halloween! ;0)

Jophie loves Christmas and I make certain he can enjoy those lights as long as possible each and every year.

You never know when it will be the last.....

Let your hair down!

Forget all the rules and just ENJOY! :0)

What a wonderful photo! There is nothing better than lying underneath a tree looking up through the branches.

I'm so glad I found your blog through Melody's site. Jophie is an inspiration.

I look forward to reading more :)

Trina--Thanks for your kind comment. I just read Jophie's story....what a brave guy and a brave mom both of you are! It's both wonderful and humbling to meet you, even if only thru cyber-space.

Hi! This is my first time here! Thank you for sharing with us about Jophie. What a fun memory you captured! Looking up through a tree or better yet, a Christmas tree is a pretty cool thing. If people haven't tried it yet, they should!!!!! :D

I wish could see what he is looking at, he looks happy. I love how you are going to put your tree up early so that Jophie can enjoy it longer. I love breaking the rules. Thanks for visiting my site.

If he loves Christmas I can't blame you for putting the tree up early so he can enjoy the lights and the decorations that much longer. :)

And yeah for the great outdoors! It's always good to spend time outside.
