The Haley Family Portraits!

This family is amazing! They graciously hosted us for 2 1/2 weeks while my husband went on a mission trip to Kenya! I don't know if you've ever had family crash at your house for an extended amount of time but, it's a lot...I know this and I'm extremely grateful. Not only are the Haley's some of my favorite people to hang out with...they are family. They are people who look for opportunity to bless and willingly do it. I'm challenged by this family's generosity. Their example isn't common but, I want it to be how we live as a family.

In my small way I wanted to thank them. We did a short family photo shoot the morning we left...Adriah had to get in on the action. Here she is with Aunt Amy and Uncle John!
