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.
