sweetheart dance 2014

Sam decided to go to the Sweetheart Dance without a boy this year. I don’t blame her. I remember going to my senior prom with my best girlfriend, Marta, and we had the best time! I can see why Sam would want to focus on having fun with her friends. Sweetheart is a “Sadie Hawkins” … [Read more…]

beauty and the beast

I’m taking an online photography class right now with one my very favorite photographers, Lisa, at The Long Road to China.  It’s not my first class with her and I guarantee it won’t be my last.  (Love her!)  Each week she gives us an assignment, and this week she wanted us to find something that … [Read more…]

our first snow

It wasn’t much I would say barely an inch But it was enough for me to brave the cold and take a couple (or more) photos It was also enough for B and the girls to play And I might’ve got a good pic of B, Sweet P and Sam If someone wasn’t being so … [Read more…]

Our Elf

Some people really don’t like this little guy. Kodi even calls him “creepy”. Phoebe wakes up each morning excited to find our elf, Timothy, and because of that he’ll visit us every year until she doesn’t want to look for him anymore. Merry Christmas!

This girl … WOW! She makes me smile every day. This has been a crazy time for P because we moved and she had to start at a new school. For a lot of kids this would be a scary thing, meeting new people and making new friends But not for my social butterfly Don’t … [Read more…]

a little something for the bridesmaids…

This past Saturday was our day to look at bridesmaid’s dresses.  Although all the girls weren’t able to attend, we made excellent progress and I think Kodi found the one she wants them to wear!  We put together a little gift for her girls…  

catching up with.. {jake}

Since May Jake has made a few changes in his life. Last year he attended the University of Arkansas. It’s a great school but wasn’t a good fit for him, and although (I’m going to brag for a moment) he finished his first year in their Honors College with straight A’s and on the Dean’s … [Read more…]

catching up with… {kodi and cody}

We’re motoring along with wedding arrangements and have hired a Certified Wedding Specialist!  We’re thrilled to have Christine of Celebrations … [Read more…]
