Rager Family Update

This last week was wild and crazy. I enjoyed a morning at the pumpkin patch
with Claire and her Preschool. It was a very chilly day.






She is such a cutie and her little personality keeps us busy :D



The next day we enjoyed a photo session with the fabulous Janie.
I am totally in love with these pics.











I included this last pic because it was taken the first weekend in May of this year.
I have been losing weight since the middle of July and this is my before and after pics.
I am so pleased with my results and Dylan's. Because of my concentrated effort to be healthy, my family is reaping the benefits also.
Almost thirty pounds down and a little more than thirty to go.

One last update.
We are still holding our breath on Dylan's job.
This last week was supposed to be our last paycheck.
Yet, he's still working.
We have no idea when the store is closing.
The stress is driving me crazy!
I have to say thank you to the fabulous friends who have been my life support and sanity.
I have been truly blessed.
I love my Texas family.
I miss my Idaho family.
Things are going to work out. Right?

I love your pics. You look beautiful as always. Janie did a great job. I'm going to have to see how much she charges.

Sarah said...

juli- she charges $75.00 for an hour session and includes a disc of all your photos-- you get your photos printed yourself-- she has pretty good connections to getting reasonably priced photos ordered online.

What beautiful pictures. Janie's talent is astounding. What a beautiful family!

Yes, Sarah things work out. You and Dylan can get through anything TOGETHER. I know it.

You are a really excpetional person and you have an exceptional family and you will rise above this and anything else life throws at you. THAT is something you can bank on.

Love the photos BTW...they are beautiful!

And, I have noticed the past few times that Ms. Claire is Ms. Popular in class...she is much loved and much admired.

We're praying for you and the job situation too. How nerve-racking is that! You must be pretty strong for Him to challenge you with such trials!

Andrea and Chuck said...

Sarah I am finding all my long lost cousins. I love the blog world for this reason. You look incredible and have even inspired me. I hope I can soon post just as amazing photos. Hope to hear from you!

Bree said...

Sarah, you look GREAT! And who is Janie?? We need a family pic!

Hey, please let me know if we can help in any way... I have no clue how hard this must be with Dylan. If you ever wanted to get a job as a seamstress, I KNOW my studio would hire you in a heart beat!
