Beans and Cars and Kids... Oh MY!!!

This was my first session with
FOUR kids.
Big sister Samantha was
in her own world and
wasn't really interested in
the camera!
The triplets however
were so happy to be able
to eat corn and beans
from their garden :)

This one is my favorite!
Clarice was all about those beans!
Didn't want to give 'em up:)

New Fabric...

Can't wait to get this fabric
from here...

I've got some fun
plans for it
it's NOT a
quilt :)

In 3 short hours... Addie has managed
to change into 5 different

Let's see I started her off with
t-shirt and pants,
of course that wasn't
good enough so she added
a skirt over top of the pants.
Then I found her hiding under the table
taking of the dreaded pants
and putting the skirt back on.

Fine... this is not a battle to fight!

Next, she brought a tank top (that I
told her she couldn't wear, because
it was just to cold out) to Alaina's school!?

When we returned home
she was coming out of her bedroom
in her new favorite purple dress!
"It is so dance-y" according to Addie :)

As I was returning some emails
and checking up on all
the fab blogs I read
she came up to me in
a different tank top,
that she insists is a dress!

So now we are on the latest
outfit, the one pictured.
Which is Alaina's!
Are sisters suppose to
fight over clothes this
I already heard Alaina
saying to Addie,
"stay out of my closet!"

Crazy kids :)

I'm in love with this shot!
It's so simple, but so sweet!

I'm so happy I succeeded with a
fun silhouette and some
spunky sun flare :)

It is so evident that these
two are madly in love.

Thanks for letting me be apart of
your lives.. and I can't wait
to meet that little bundle :)

So Sweet!

There is something about
a mom and her daughter
that just captures me,
and I can't help but stare!

Now when it is a mom with her
child and the mom is
I am beyond a gawker!

Yesterday one of my dear friends
let me take some photos
of her and her daughter.
She is expecting her second
in mid-November,
and I am so excited for her!

These are just a few shots of our morning together!

Thank you Melanie :)

DAiSYS & dots L.O.V.E.S Cookies!

I am beyond excited...
awhile back
Abby from Style Me Pretty
contacted me and
wanted to purchase some
of the Garden Party Bunting.
{my best seller to date!}

She had told me that
she was purchasing them
to decorate for her
daughters first birthday!
She was entering the party
into a contest :)

I kind of forgot about it,
until last night someone
had written me a convo
wanting a bunting just like
Audry's pink birthday party.
Clueless, I asked her if that was
a certain pattern for some fabric,
and she said no...
I found it


Oh and today was
Alaina's full first day
of Young 5's.
I was nervous and
I've been wanting
to get this week behind me
for awhile now.
I think I am just overwhelmed
wondering how the world
will accept my daughter?
So today I arrive with enough
time to get her into class
and do the morning routine,
when I backed into a mini van!
I was in total shock that
I just did what I did,
plus completely embarrassed!
This was the last thing I
needed. After we found out
that there was no damage,
she wasn't so annoyed, but
still I was on the verge of tears
and I just wanted to go hide in a
corner! If you have kiddos in
school, you know that in
the morning the parking lot
is BUSY!


Also, I just came back from a
lovely 2 days away.
I get to go to an annual ladies
retreat every September.
This year I laughed so hard I cried.
Well that is no different
from any other year.
It's not very often that a group of
woman can get together and act
like they are in their teens :)
A bonus was I got to
hear some of the most
amazing guitar playing
on the face of this Earth!
