Family Photo

A combination of 5 different photos, done with a tripod and self timer on a cold, windy day, but hey it’s a family photo!  Two toddlers, two dogs and mommy being photographer.  Whew!  And check out Charlotte’s sass!!


Work Holiday Part 2012

We had my work holiday party last night.  It was fun to get all dressed up and spend some time together.  I am amazed at the changes in my body after a year of working out.  From a size 12 to a size 6!


(And no that’s not an optical illusion.  Our tree in the photo on the right is 7 ft tall.  We are standing maybe a foot in front of it…we are just really tall people.)

And this is the back of the dress…I seriously love this ‘little black dress’ from Cache.

Sweet baby girl

I have more photos from this series, but this one completely melts my heart (and gosh I wish I hadn’t shot so wide open so I would have gotten both eyes in focus).

Friends wedding

My husband and I were able to get away for a couple days to attend a friend's wedding in Dallas. It was a beautiful wedding, great to catch up with old friends and meet some new ones, and get away kid free for a couple of days.

Stolen phone

I think it's so funny when I find random photos like these on my phone.

Cute phone pics

Growing up at the park

Taken end of October 2010 vs April 2012.  Look how much bigger they got!!  The photos aren’t nearly as cool because 1)I’m out of practice and 2) the kids are not terribly cooperative and move so much faster.


Way overdue–Cooper’s 4th Birthday Party

I am so, so behind on photos!!  Here are some quick pictures of Cooper’s 4th birthday party.  He chose a Phineas and Ferb theme for his party.  We kept it small with just family and close friends, and his best friend from school Ethan.  My sister made the cake and I made the cupcakes.  I think Cooper had a great time!

School Pictures 2012

School pictures are here!  Look at 2012 compared to just a year ago!!


My sisters – Charlotte’s birth mother at age 5 and my other sister at age 5.  In so many ways Charlotte is a mix of my two sisters – personality, looks, and mannerisms.0

Me at age 5 and my brother at age 3/4.  I swear there are pictures of my brother that I constantly do a double take because it looks identical to Cooper.

Easter 2012

{From April 2012.}  The kids listened so well this year for dying Easter eggs. (Previous year here.)


Smelling the eggs


And I only got a few official Easter photos.  This one is the only one with them looking and smiling, but the rest are hilarious and silly.  I only notice how giant Cooper is when they are sitting next to each other like this.  DSC_8361_edit_wm
