You'll probably need to click into this picture to compare it to the one below. See how many of you can catch the difference between the two?
For those of you who are observant, can you see the difference between this picture and the next one? (Remember you can click into a picture to enlarge it.)
What is Joseph doing (on the right)? He and Nathan are doing a 100 day fitness challenge, so he's taking care of some of his exercise while we took a break.
It almost seems as if Anna and Abby are having a conversation!

We girls try to get a picture each year, although last year we didnt.

  1. The pictures are wonderful. I especially love the picture of the girls together–beauitful, and the yellow and green looks so good on all of you. Good choice in colors and I love the jumpers. I like the way they fit, can I ask what pattern you used?

    I used to make all my own clothes and only wore long skirts and jumpers for a lot of years–over 20 at least. We are in the process of moving to Redondo Beach and I am eager to get my sewing machines out and start sewing again. I dress modest, but I want to make my own linen jumpers again–I miss sewing my clothing.

    Blessings, Mrs. Mari

    I was excited to see you may be in Las Vegas? My sister lives there and I would love to bring her and my 14 and 7 year old nieces to the conference with me there.

    Mrs. Mari,
    The pattern is McCalls #3129, and the girls were able to make them without the zipper. I truly hope we can meet you on this next trip! We waiting to hear back from Las Vegas on confirmation–we should know very soon! I didn’t know you were moving!!

  2. These are great pictures! I love your coordination with the outfits and location. Abby is so cute!

  3. Oh, those are just great! A handsome family you have. Christopher and John are switched in the two pictures above.

  4. The pictures are wonderful. I’m amazed at how tall your “baby” Mary is. She isn’t a baby anymore, that’s for sure! She’s caught up to her sisters and is a lovely young lady just as Anna and Sarah are. God has truly blessed you with a beautiful family.

  5. The difference in the pics if I am not mistaken is that the 2 gentlemen on the right end switched places. (?)

  6. Beautiful pictures. 😀 I saw what was differnet in two pictures too. Took me a minute though.

    May the Lord bless you all, you can see the love of Jesus shinning on your faces.

  7. I love these family line up photo’s. I’m assuming you used a timer on the camera for the shots of the whole family. They are centred very well.
    Good job. I especialy love Abigails expression in the last photo!

    Actually, my grandparents used a remote control to take quite a few of the pictures! It was a blessing. Christopher worked to get everything set (being centered, etc), and then they took them! Sarah

  8. Sarah, Thank you for the pattern number. I will be able to pick it up and choose some fabric when we go to pick out fabric for the bathroom windows in the new house.

    Yes, we are leaving Enumclaw and moving closer to Seattle. We both love the water and all I can tell you is that God directed us right to this new home–it wasn’t even on the market yet when we bought it. Sweeping views of Puget Sound from every window. The reason for the move is that I needed a house with no stairs due to my own health issues, and then Mom is with us and we need to all be on the same floor all the time. It’s perfect.

    We will meet this upcoming trip. I plan to go to Vancouver, WA and then Las Vegas if it is added. I would love for my nieces to experience this. I’m trying, as best I can, to talk about the difference in dating and courting to the 14 year old.

    Blessings, Mari
    We will look forward to meeting you, either in Vancouver, WA or Edgewood, WA. We won’t be going to Las Vegas after all, as we feel the Lord has told us clearly not to go there. The closest weekend conference is Fallbrook CA. If you had a way there with your nieces to get there with you, I don’t think you will regret it.


  9. What beautiful photos! Your smiles are so uplifting! Everyone looks so joyous! I wanted to say that Melanie is especially beautiful — she is always radiant, but I love her with longer hair! And of course that little Abby is just adorable as ever.

    Thanks for sharing your family with all of us!

  10. The photos are beautiful! My favorite was the one of the ladies 🙂

    I wanted to write this morning and say thank you to Sarah. My family and I are reading the newest Mooody book, my husband reads it to us every night after family devotions. We have read through all of them, even pausing for a depoloyment in between (the children wouldn’t read it without daddy!) These books have been such an encouragement for our entire family. I also wanted to say thank you to the entire Maxwell family. I am always encouraged by your blog, and your steadfastness. Thank you for sharing your lives with us and being such an encouragement!
