Water Week

Hello Monday

A fun and busy weekend has passed. This week is filled with a special little visitor and lots of water fun. The one place that all of us agree is the best kind of fun!

Wishing you a great Monday!

Crazy Cousins

A family camping trip brings out the best in all of us!  I took a lot of photos on the family camping trip, probably some that are better photography but really these are the ones I love.

After all with family you were free to be yourself and be as messy as you like.

Just be plain crazy with those that know you best!

Pink and Poodles

When a photo assignment comes up and I need a model this is my go to girl.  She is fairly easy going so pretty much happy with my selection of clothes and hair.  There is no favoritism here just sometimes the battle is not worth the outcome.

I think Katie has grown a lot this summer.  Not only are her legs longer but she is mature in a different way than she was a year ago.  

I had found this poodle skirt in the closet and she loved it.  Told me now she just loves the 50's!  

I will be so sad when this summer light is not as brilliant as it is now.  

In the past month I have switched over to a Mac.  That was a learning curve for me but now I love it.  I am not always the best with learning curves.  I am sure more than once my family was done with me.

Just finished a long 4th of July weekend.  We had a lot of family time.  Summer is going way to fast so hoping to hang on to some of this sun as much as I can!

A celebration of 10

Today we celebrated Bri's tenth birthday.  She has grown and changed so much in the last year.  She is almost as tall as me and has a mind of her own that is creative, loving, and strong.  
We love you a lot Miss Brianna.

These photos of Bri were so much fun and there are more to share in the coming days.  There have been a lot of kids going and coming with all that summer brings.  The girls just returned from Girl Scout camp.  This brought back a lot of memories that I had as a young girl. I can say when I picked them up yesterday they felt just as I had years ago and right away asked to come back next year! How could we say no to those priceless memories!

A little help

Andy is doing great after surgery.  I would say the hardest part is a liquid diet and we are all counting down the days until he can eat again.  After so many days at home letting him heal these kids needed a project.

My list of "to-do's" is always so long and these chair were on it.

Two old "forgotten" chairs from my grandparents farm.  Four kids and two fun colors of paint. A perfect project!

A project I had to step back from. Let them do it.  Give some advice and try to remember I don't need to oversee this.

It killed some hours in the day and ended with a run in the sprinkler to clean off.  As for me I need to figure out how to make some cute vintage cushions to complete these family "forgotten" chairs.

Celebrating Father's Day Now and Six Years Ago

Today we celebrated Father's Day and Andy's Gotcha Day.  Six years ago Brian became a Dad one more time as Andrew came into our life.  He changed us all in so many ways and stole our hearts. Brian has always been an amazing Dad to our kids and cares for them in so many ways. 
This is from our camping trip this week.  This little man will have surgery again this week.  It will be a trying time for sure but I pray we will be able to manage his pain.  Then we will need to figure out ways to keep him still which will be a challenge in itself.

It has been a long time since  I have blogged. I miss it and I miss keeping this journal for our family.  Life has been nonstop for awhile and full of changes. Some which my heart has had trouble accepting but it is time to head back to this blog. A place for my beloved photos and the story of our life!

Celebrating One

A very special niece just turned one this week.  She had just one little tooth to eat her cake with!

A year ago this little one came to my sister's family through adoption. There is no doubt this little angel is loved by so many.  She is the baby of the family and has so many cousins to attend to her every need.

To look into those beautiful blue eyes you can see that life has a plan that has so many twists and turns.  So many events had to happen to make this little one a part of our family. Some were not fun and downright scary events, but when you look at this little one you see how right she is for my sister's family.
