Every year we go to an adult Halloween party. I don't actually like getting dressed up but I make the most of it & as you can see so does my hubby. This year we were angels...a dark angel & the Arch Angel. There was dancing, good food & lots of fun with friends.  
Our friend Heather is the most creative person we know especially when it comes to her Halloween costume. She takes it very seriously. This year she was a My Little Pony...hind legs & all. Until next year. 


Holding on to that Single Digit

Johnnie turned 9 today. My little boy is only one year away from being double digits & this mama is just not ready. He is so smart, athletic, sweet, kind & just full of life. He's a great big brother & even let his baby sister help blow out his candles when he obviously doesn't need any help. He's a great swimmer & just so funny. We love this little big boy so much & look forward to what this last year of single digits has in store for him.


4 going on 14

This little one turned 4 today 
 but with the amount of sass in her you would think she was turning 14.  
She is such a sweetie. Always giving kisses & hugs. Always running to greet me when I pick her up at her preschool & running straight to daddy's arms yelling DADDEEEEEE!!!! when he walks through the door at night. These photos of her make her look so sweet & innocent
but when she doesn't get her way you get faces like this & lots of NOs & grunts. She is our baby girl & we are so lucky to have her spirit within our home.


The Many Faces of Holly

Holly Moon is an amazing little girl & of course I'm biased...she's my baby girl. Today was Mother's day & after getting my photo with all my kiddos I decided to take some photos of her. This series of photos demonstrates her personality to a tee. She is a smart, funny, hard headed little girl that doesn't like to be told what to do & she's not afraid to let you know how she feels. She can be moody 
a little evil
& genuinely just a loveable, happy, beautiful girl.

Mama's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the women in the world that are lucky enough to be moms or just love a kiddo like their own including myself & my two sisters who love my children the way they would if they were theirs. And I hope my mom knows that even though she's not here with me I see her in everything I do as a mom. I'm so thankful for my kiddos.


Valentine's Date Night

As parents of 4 children it's not often we get a night out alone but we always try & celebrate Valentine's Day which is my favorite day of the year because it's a day that is all about love. Tonight we just went to dinner at Restaurant Christine but it was so nice to have a nice, quiet, hot meal & of course to celebrate the love that we share.


Beach Cabins

This weekend we piled all the kiddos into the truck & headed south to Del Mar to stay in the beach cabins with our great friends.
We spent all day at the beach laying & playing in the sun
 climbing the rocks  
& playing in the water. 

We spent our evenings having dinner, eating smores, listening to music, drinking wine & enjoying each our friends.  
It was an amazing trip away & one we hope will continue in the future.


Happy Birthday Jojo

Our New Year's Eve baby turned 7 today. To celebrate we had some friends over for cake, presents & kid fun. Our loveable boy is so sweet, funny & playful. He has started to enjoy sports more, he's doing great in school & he's doing great at Taekwondo. We would celebrate his birthday every year but his special day is always a reason to celebrate the new year. Happy Birthday Jojo!!!



Thanksgivingis a very special day in our house. The whole family comes over dinner. We spend the day watching football, playing outside & my favorite part of the day is getting all of us together in a family photo for our Christmas cards. 

My favorite photos of the day were the ones captured with my kiddos & my hubs...which are what I'm most thankful for in life.
Everyone but me finds it torturous so I have to agree to silly photos but it's worth it to capture these beautiful moments.
