Week 12

Alexis had her very first soccer practice this week! It was fun watching her play a sport. This is her first sport, other than dance. It's an hour long practice twice a week. I think the hour is a bit long for her, it seems after 45 minutes she's done. Her first game is in a few weeks and I'm so excited for it. I'm officially a soccer mom, with the mini-van and everything! =)

We got tickets to Disney on Ice. This is our 5th year in a row going. To say we our a Disney obsessed family would be an understatement. We LOVE Disney! Alexis said she wanted to dress up as Princess Anna this year, with the pig-tail braids and all. I think we pulled it off. Paxton isn't into the whole dress up thing and he was happy that we didn't make him, lol. It was a wonderful show! I love that our kids truly believe that the characters are the ACTUAL people. Seeing the magic in their eyes brings tears to mine. Childhood is so much fun.

Week 11

Alexis had her 2nd dance competition. They took 1st place in their age-division and made it to over-alls. They placed 7th over-all in the 8 and unders. Which means our 4-5 year old girls beat out 8 year olds! I enjoy watching her dance. I love seeing how performing brings her so much joy.


I love this green holiday, I think it's so much fun! We definitely celebrate it in our house! We began the day with some green pancakes.

We all got dressed in our green and we took Alexis to school. The morning was pretty ordinary. Nothing too fun going on. But after we picked big sis up from school I gave them some fun shamrock headbands to wear that I picked up at the Dollar Store.

I made rainbow fruit kabobs to go a long with their lunch, and then we made Shamrock Mosaics. Which I think turned out awesome!

After Pax woke up from his nap the leprechaun came by and left some clues for the kids to send them to a pot of gold. I took pictures of this, but they really didn't turn out very well. =( 

One more picture. Our only St. Paddy's Day decoration. lol

Alexis found my wedding veil and wanted to play with it. I couldn't resist taking pictures of her wearing it. It brought tears to my eyes thinking about her on the day she'll get married.

Little Brother wanted in on the wedding veil fun. He thought it was fun to play peek-a-boo with it. =)

Week 10

My sweet boy. 

We had a few days of nice weather. We tried to spend most of our time enjoying it. I can't wait for summer! It's almost here!!

This girl loves strawberries! Everyday for snack she askes for a bowl full.

Week 9

This week was my birthday week! It was literally a week long celebration. It started off with having brunch with my parents, brother and sister-in-law. The next day (my actual birthday) Cory and I went out to dinner and went and saw the Endless Love movie (so cute by the way!) Then the next day I had a big night out with all my girlfriends. We went out to dinner and then went to a bar for some more fun. The following day we had dinner with my whole family (grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins…everyone) at a pizza place. And the next day my husband bought me my favorite pie, put 27 candels in it and he and the kids sang me happy birthday. Spending the week with all the people I love most in the world was very special. 27 is starting off to be a great year!

One of my good friends gave me flowers on my birthday and I had a lot of fun taking pictures of them. I wish I was better at macro and would love to take some marco classes. But for now, I enjoy just playing around.

I wanted to play around with some indoor moody lighting. I also wanted to try out some new editing skills I've learned for black and whites. I'm really happy with the way these turned out.
