Family pictures

When Cullen was 7 days old we had family portraits made.  They are a true treasure to me.  I prayed for that with the twins, so the pictures that we have of Cullen so brand new are absolutely priceless to me. 

After we moved I was afraid we would have a hard time finding a new photographer.  I was so happy when a good friend suggested Tracy to us.  OH.MY.GOODNESS!

I am going to link to her blog so you can get a little peek at the awesomeness she captured during our 2 hour shoot.  In the blazing heat of June in Texas! 

And to top it all off…these pics were taken EXACTLY 2 years after the first ones of Cullen.  7 days after his second birthday!

Blogger back-up

How in the world can two months pass that quickly??  SO much has happened in our little world and I wouldn’t want to miss any of it…so, here is a blogger back-up.

My super sweet and smart girl has done AWESOME in school!  (Just keeping it real: not every day is an easy breezy day…sometimes I would rather jump out of a plane with a questionable parachute)  A

However, I am so proud of what we have accomplished together and I think the most rewarding part of our homeschool is watching Ellie gain the confidence and pride in her work that she creates.

She is growing up way too fast and actually lost two of these babies in the last two months! (she pulled the second one all by herself, b/c I was just not made to be a tooth puller)

We are preparing to take a family vacation to Vail to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary.  This man was not made for shopping, so I’m praying that in the few trips we’ve made I’ve gathered enough warm clothing for him!

And look how big he is getting!  Just this morning he woke up and looked at me and said, “I love you breast friend” (my heart almost exploded…my kids are my world)

My man at neighborhood night out.  Ellie was SO mad she had ballet and had to miss out on the fun.

A day of fun before the sickies invaded…


I mean REALLY invaded.  Throwing up, trips to the ER, and fevers that topped out at 105.3…scary times here.
