What's going on around here??

I wanted to post something today, because it might be a while before I post again. We have some big Thanksgiving plans that include seeing family, eating, seeing friends, eating, traveling...you get the idea! :)

A friend of mine, that is a photographer, has generously offered to help her friends with their every day photo taking by starting a message board that serves as a 'class' for us. She gives us assignments, offers advicve, gives tips and, overall, helps us to take better photos. I am LOVING it, as you all know, I am obsessed with taking pics of my girls. Our first assignment involved using natural light and I have been addicted to taking natural light photos for the past week or so.

While it's not the best photo ever, I LOVE this pic of Abby. She is so beautiful, inside and out, and I think you can just see it in her eyes in this picture. She is growing up to be such a sweet, funny, creative, determined and independent little lady. I have a feeling NOTHING will ever stop this girl from doing whatever she sets her mind to. (which will no doubt serve as hard times for us from time to time-haha-but, I wouldn't want it any other way!)

And, our little Sweetheart! It's so fun to watch her little personality develop. In some ways she is a lot like Abby (**GORGEOUS, silly, impatient-ha!**), and in other ways she is so different. She is the HAPPIEST little thing I have ever seen. All you have to do is look at her and she has a smile for you. And, she is our little cuddler. She just wants to be held and hugged and wants to be around us at all times.
A true Abby smile. It's so hard to get a real smile these days, because she is so into 'cheesing' for the camera!
And, I have been meaning to get a picture of her with wet hair and finally remembered during her bath last night. (and I wish this picture was bigger, because her eyes are even bluer than they were a few days ago) Anyways, her hair is curly when it's wet and it is DARLING! (and I think she looks like my Grandpa Lee when her hair is wet like this...he would LOVE that)
And, for those of you that know me and Abby, you knew this was coming......sweet little piggies....Abby picked the color for her. :)

'STEW-ART!' hahaha! Look what he did last night! Abby laughed and smiled about it for a while, then she was annoyed by it, of course, and finally said, 'Mom, can you PLEASE get Stewart OFF of MY potty!?' hahaha!

About Me

Welcome to our life! :) Our life seems to be a constant 3 ring circus these days, but we have a lot of fun, laugh a lot and enjoy every minute of it (okay...almost every minute-haha!) Scott and I have been married for almost 9 years, and we are the parents of 2 amazing daughters, and another little one on the way. This blog is a way to keep in touch with family and friends. It also serves as a 'year book' of sorts for our family. Enjoy!!
