Happy Friday

Hello! I am so excited for this weekend... No particular reason but that we get to hang out as a family and support our kiddos at their ball games. To make our weekend perfect in every way me and the Hubby definetly need a nap but we'll have to see about that. I hope your weekend is full of fun and relaxation... Please check in again soon because next week I will have alot of new pics to share.

A new goal....

I have a new goal of doing Birthday pictures for the kids every year but I am putting a twist on it! I have decided to do something special that will showcase them and who they are. I told my J to pick out some things to bring for props and some things that were her favorites as far as clothes go (with a little help:) and this is one of the pics we came up with. She wanted this pose and I couldn't have been happier. I would never have asked her to lay in a field because I would have probably gotten a resounding no... But because it was her idea it feels real and I will cherish this picture forever because of that. P.S. Gotta love the Spongebob band-aid (had to keep it because it is just who she is right now, she loves him by the way and in 10 years we will have a good laugh over it I am sure).

My baby girl turns 7

At our house B-days include homemade decorations, picking your favorite dinner to eat, usually I make the cake but Jolee wanted to do her own this year. She was tickled when it was finished and couldn't have been happier with the finished product. Maybe this will become a new tradition?!?

ariel blanket (it is sooo soft she tells me)
100% perfect for our family

I had to post this one...There is something so special about black and white. Pure, dramatic at times and nothing puts the focus more on the subject(in my opinion). And honestly who wouldn't want the focus on this handsome boy?
