An Alaskan sunrise and a Benjamin moon (kinda)

Every morning when I wake up I open all the curtains in the house so that when the sun rises we can enjoy the sunlight for a little while. Yesterday while I was sitting in my leaving room I saw that the sun was starting ti rise so I looked out the window to see the most beautiful purple and pink sky. It was just so beautiful. I tried to capture its beauty on film yet the pictures don't do what i saw justice. I think we by far have some of the prettiest sun rises and sun sets in the world..
Not to be out done by the beautiful sun rise the moon had to make a show of things. Ok not really the moon but Ben's cute little bottom. I walked in my room to see if Ben was ready to go to bed and when I walked in I saw him fast asleep with his little bum stuck in the air. To me it was just as breathtaking site as the sun rise. He is just growing way to fast and every moment is just so precious I just love my little Benny boy so much I just wish that I could stop time just for a while..

If that sunrise picture isn't doing the real thing justice, I can't imagine how beautiful it must be.

And that moonrise? Awesome!

Haha, nice moon ;-) That is a BEA-U-TI-FUL sunrise too! I'm just getting around to commenting from SITS yesterday! I passed out right after roll call (b/c it was 2am here) and then went to bed at 8pm last night...very unlike me...I must've been tired, hehe. Anyway, cute blog SITSta! I'll be back! And I know what you mean about stopping time...I wish we could do that!

What a beautiful sunrise! And I totally get what you mean about Ben. I want to freeze my munchkins just as they are sometimes. Other times I am so totally psyched to see them becoming even cooler beings as they grow!
