Maury Hundley...

...is the beautiful photographer who took our Christmas card pictures (one side of which is featured in the header above). Not only is she a talented photographer, she is also a loving, caring, godly mentor and friend. I have had the humbling privilege of sitting under her honest example for two years. I can remember being a college student in Abilene longing for someone like her to wrap her arms around me and walk with me through life, helping me see my insufficiency and Christ's ultimate sufficiency. I am blessed to finally walk in a relationship like that. Thank you, Maury.

Since I don't have everyone's addresses in blogland, I thought I'd send a virtual Christmas card to you all (including some of whom I actually do have your addresses but ran out of cards! So sorry!).

Merry Christmas!

(here are a few of the other pictures from "side B" of our card)

Those are awesome, Lauren! Your family is beautiful in every way. Reid is growing up so much! He looks the perfect mix of you and Matt.

These are the cutest pictures I have ever seen. No joke.

I love the one where Audrey is barefoot. So sweet!

Merry Christmas!

Those are such beautiful pictures of your family!!! Thanks for including Maury's website... she will be great for our family pictures, as soon as Harper arrives! I hope that y'all have a wonderful Christmas!

I keep reading your blog like an hour after you post...no I'm not really a stalker it just seems we're on the computer at similar times! You've probably heard this a million times but you guys are a beautiful family! Your daughter looks like her daddy and your little boy is your mini-me! What fun to think of what #3 will look like. Matt was our youth camp pastor for a few years a long time ago and we were fortunate enough to have him the year you guys got engaged...I made it a prayer after hearing him rave about you that I would wait for a man who was as crazy about me as he was and is about you and guess what! God gave him to me :)

Team Green said...

Maury's your Elizabeth. What an answered prayer. I think Reid looks Jonathan, but that means he looks like you, just male. Their all beautiful. Love you, Ashley

Wilson Family said...

Your family is so beautiful! I found your blog through a friends blog... I check it occasionally. I am so happy for you that you are pregnant after hearing that you have been trying for awhile. We go to the Village and "know who Audrey's Daddy is too:)... and you too. I met you at Chik Fil A once and you watched my Conner during the U2 thing at church... Anyway, I just wanted to tell post a comment, so I didn't feel like I was blog stalking you-LOL, and with your beautiful new pictures I though it was a good opportunity:).. We may use the same photographer!
Merry Christmas!

Wow, you have the most beautiful family! I also found your blog through a friends blog. Matt was my pastor at youth camp for many years and I also went to HSU! All us girls were very sad when Matt announced that he was engaged. Then we saw you and how gorgeous you are. I know he got a great girl. Its so neat to see how your family has grown and how God continues to bless you! Merry Christmas!

The Barnards said...

Wow, what a beautiful family you are! I saw your blog through a friends blog. Matt was my pastor at youth camp for several years and I also went to HSU! The night your husband announced ya'lls engagement to us, all the girls hearts sank. God obviously knew what he was doing. Its neat to see how God has added to your family and continues to bless you all! Merry Christmas!
