Favorite Friday Photo- Deal me in

Our two year old niece has quit the poker face.  I could not believe she would sit that long and play cards.  War seemed to be her game.

Watch those cards fly..after all my arms are not that long!

I will win...after all have you ever played with someone so cute!

After a card game it sure feels good to cuddle with my big cousin Brianna.

Sunday Superstars

Our star glasses. A gift from a fun party today led to some sister shots.

Our life this weekend has been nuts.  So fun to stop for a minute. After a birthday party and some yummy cake and ice cream the girls were a little giggly. 

The sun was beautiful tonight in the sky.  I think it may be the last of it for a day or so as we are to get a big storm tomorrow.  Best to take what we can get and enjoy my superstars!

Favorite Friday Photo-A date with Miss Kate

Miss Katie and I went on a date last Saturday.  Just some time for her and I and she ate it up!  We went downtown in the town we were staying for skiing. It was such a cute downtown a perfect place to go.

Our first stop would be a coffee shop. Chai tea for me and hot chocolate for Miss Katie. 

Then a hot cinnamon roll to share.  This was a time for her to tell me anything she wanted. It always amazes me how much  I learn about my children on these dates

We next went to a fabric and yarn store. It was a shop with such a vintage feel and so much energy! I am pretty sure Katie and I could have stayed there all day.  She loves to look through all that craft material as much as me. 

Looking back it really was the perfect morning.  She is an amazing daughter!

We had snow today but look what surprise I found in the greenhouse.  This plant has been in the greenhouse for months with no broccoli on it but today that changed.

365 Photos- Day 51

I am teaching a scrapbooking-photo class at the school for eight weeks.  We have spent some time taking photos and then today we started some photo projects at school with different ideas of what they can do with their photos.  It is fun to see their personalities in not only how they take photos but how they work on these art projects.  A little Mod Podge can lead to some fun canvases art

365 Photos-Day 49

This photos is not from today but it is a photo that means a lot to me and I wanted to make sure it makes it in our album at the end of the year!  During Andy's Valentine's Party this is where I found him reading with a special friend.  There are so many elements to this photo just about our own personal journey with Andy as our son and the true meaning of love..the love between friends!

Sunday Snapshots- Girls

Just a day to shot some photos of my girls as I am always trying to improve it seems. These outfits from Grandma were so colorful and fun we had to get a couple of shots.

With a week about love these two girls have it.  There are disagreements that do happen but in the end they do love each other. I love having sisters and hope they will feel the same one day!

We just finished a weekend of skiing at least some of us.  More of those photos to come soon!

Favorite Friday Photo- Snow much fun!

Our week would start with a little bit of snow and a snow day!

We are lucky to live by a hill that for the time being is a great sledding spot for us. 

Miss Brianna can really be a part of her brothers sledding adventures. The girl is tough and loves to be out in the snow. 

Katie on the other hand does not like to take her sled and only slides down when everyone else is gone.  She however told me the snow tastes wonderful!!

It was great exercise for this little six year old.  Of course once he and the others were done it meant one thing...HOT CHOCOLATE!

Happy Chinese and Korean New Year

Happy Chinese/Korean New Year!  A time to remember where two of our beautiful children came from and the gifts they are to us.

They were both excited for today. The outfits they are wearing were actually Brianna and Riley's from China and this will be the last photo session with them as we have almost outgrown them.  There is plans in the works for some new outfits for our seventh birthday's. 

I am asked from time to time how Brianna and Riley feel when we celebrate these days.  I would say with any sibling group there is a little bit of jealousy but their Dad is a proud Irish man so there will be some wearing of the green during next month. 

They are both growing so much.  It is fun to watch them grow and at the same time some sadness of how fast it is going. 

Oh my little man it was his way on this photo shot and I agreed because he like his siblings has his Mama's heart. 

This was a final sweet moment as we finished the season with some priceless giggles.

A Day to Remember

Today marks yet another year gone for my very special cousin and Godfather.  He has been on my mind so very much lately.  The other night the mountains right behind us were truly gorgeous.  I couldn't help but think of a place that my cousin is where there is no pain.  A place where cancer does not exist.  It is all of us left that feel the pain. Many days I think of him and know one day I too will see him again.
