A Day in the Life…

The Cardboard Box…

| August 30, 2013

We got a new lawn mower… Nothing is more fun… Than a cardboard box… and a good friend!                    Pretty much love her face… Sometimes as a mom, you just have to go with it…

Always Outdoors

| August 2, 2013

Summer fun, hanging out outside!  I get tired of holding this little chubby monkey… Here, have a seat, D!  Mara loved it.   Our neighborhood friend, Ayslee!  She has the most beautiful eyes!

Someday My Prince Will Come…

| May 11, 2013

Happy 3rd birthday to our beautiful Princess Mara!  She is a true joy to our family and we were blessed when God gave her to us! I wondered if I should hold off for a princess party until she was 4 or 5 – that she may enjoy it or appreciate it more.  But I’m […]

Eight Days Apart

| April 6, 2013

We’re going to be best friends, I just know it.

I Have Sweet Friends

| March 16, 2013

One of my loveliest friends, Liz, really wanted to throw a baby shower for this little one.  She had been in Omaha for a few years (for unknown reasons!… Well, I know the reason, but was sad she was gone for so long!  The important thing is that her little family returned!  Anyway, not needing […]

Happy Valentine’s Day

| February 26, 2013

Kids {loved} putting their Valentine’s together this year.  Last year, it was a chore for Breyton to write his name on all of his cards but this year he loved every minute!  I gave him his list of friends and he went to work.  Of course his cards were Cars themed and Mara’s were “princess.”  […]

Brand New.

| June 13, 2012

Nine day old, little Chase, was the perfect practice photography baby!  A friend of mine allowed me to come and turn their house into a studio to capture their first born, handsome son! It fun to spend time with them and I learned a lot in the process!  What a good guinea pig he was!!

New Kid on the Block

| June 13, 2012

A brand new baby girl is scheduled to arrive down the street on July 2.  Not for me, people, but for my good friend who is glowing in pregnancy!  She has a beautiful family and allowed me to photography them as they transition to a family of four! Their amazingly gorgeous girl was the greatest […]

Lovely Ladies.

| April 22, 2012

I love our neighbors! Seriously!  Debbie, I love that you allow me to crash your yard/house/or whatever, whenever!  Teva, love that you love lunch play dates and are ready to play whenever – and look so stinkin’ good at any time of day – even when pregnant! Love you ladies!  Feel blessed to have you […]

Crate Training.

| April 15, 2012

Yes, we will gladly babysit your kids! I promise, I found them like that!  

A Birthday Party.

| April 15, 2012

Lots of little kiddos, fish crackers and a sunny day make for a good party! (We’re down 5 kids here, I think)                    

Pump It Up

| February 11, 2012

Play date to {bounce} !  Emily and her 2 kiddos, Reid and Lydia joined us to play one afternoon.  Mara hated it, B and R were 2 peas in a pod following each other, and Lydia was a climbing machine!  In M’s defense, not really geared toward little kiddos as much.

Aquarium & La Jolla

| January 7, 2012

{Day 3}   Caught Mara undressing herself last evening. At the Aquarium.  We were sure to find Dory and Nemo (and the starfish, unshown)!  The jellyfish were cool! Kids got to touch sea life in the outdoor tide pools.  Both touched the starfish but only M was brave enough to touch a sea cucumber :)  […]

Good Friends and Chick-Fil-A

| December 3, 2011

October 28, 2011 It’s almost becoming a tradition to meet with Grace and Chick-Fil-A for lunch every 1-2 months, chat the few words we can get in between “mothering” our kids, and “police” the play area  :) Now that Liz is back, living in Greeley, it was great to have her join the crew! Oh, […]

A Day with the Messer’s

| August 18, 2011

Another “awhile back” post…  I just realized in blogging tonight that I had not posted on this!  Shame. We went to visit Liz, Micah, and Joe (and Liz’s fam) a couple weeks ago to visit for the day.  And by “we,” I mean Breyton, Mara and I.  We set out for the 1.5 hour car […]
