Memories, Dreams and Reflections...

Artistic Me
I'm Not Afraid
Hah!  This is the best I could do... I'm always the one takin' the pictures!  No one ever takes one of me except my Mac.  My Mac sure is a good friend huh?!  :)  So... here's a crazy edit and a noisy image of little ol me.  I had to "artistically" cover up all the noise in the first one and no... I'm not afraid in the second picture I just acidently took a picture of myself stuffing a brownie in my face!  Hah... Make note... don't eat while playing around in photo booth and take more pictures of self in 2011!  

2.I You
My hubby Brent.  He's the anchor that keeps me grounded, the support that keeps me going and an awesome daddy to our four terrific kids.  Oh... and my best friend of course.
This is a shot of him in Williamsburg VA waiting... for me to {stop} taking pictures of the kiddos.  Hah!  He's always doing that.  Such a good sport!  

3.Still Laughing
This shot makes me laugh everytime I see it!  Peek-a-Boo was so excited to roast marshmallows with us that she wouldn't stop stuffing them in her mouth.  Look at all that marshmallow dust! 

4.Winter Wonderland
I think we saw more snow in December 2010 than we've seen in several years.  Oh... and we also were blessed with a white Christmas!  Beautiful...

Ella Hope turned 2 Minnie Mouse style!

Hannah& Mac
Hannah wanted me to post this picture!  Isn't that funny... This is a shot from her birthday dinner.  She was so... excited to take McKenzie to the Kanki.  The Kanki is Hannah's absolute favorite place to eat!  She loves, loves, loves Japanese food.  They had lots of good laughs and giggles if you know what I mean!  This is such a fun age.

7.I Was Inspired...
All the beautiful hand knitted "flower" hats on Etsy inspired me to try and make one for Peek-a-Boo.  Here it is!    

8.Spring Fever
I saw these purple pom poms and just had to have them.  It's something about spring and flowers that I just can't get enough of!

We had loads of fun traveling this summer and spending time with our family and friends.  We spent July 4th weekend at Wintergreen Ski Resort and had a blast!  There's nothing like watching fireworks form the top of the ski resort.  Where's the snow Ella?  Hah...  

10.Summer Days
Look what we found in our community pool this summer and every other summer for that matter!  These little guys are swimming in the filters just about every day.  Yuk..O

11.A Day In My Life
Ella Sleeping

This was a hard one for me, but this picture of Ella all sacked out and Jax scratchin' his head pretty much sums up how I often feel throughout the day.  Hehe...

12.All Smiles
He's always all smiles... just normally not quite this BIG!  This is the reaction I got while trying to take a few shots of him at Disney World.  I guess he was a little excited!  Of course he was, we all were!

13.Autumn Harvest
Ethan on Swing
Ethan was enjoying swinging on our rope swing in the backyard on a beautiful fall afternoon.  The weather was perfect...

My kiddos, so in love with each other and in love with the day.   

Celebrate July 4th
We had such a wonderful time celebrating Ethan's sixth birthday during July 4th weekend at Wintergreen.  We were so... blessed to be with family and friends.  All of the kids had such a blast playing with thier cousins at the cabin.  It was definitely a time to clebrate not only Ethan's birthday, but our togetherness...  

16.Let's Do It Again
We visited Universal Studios during our trip to Orlando in December and the kids had an awesome time exploring the new Harry Potter section of the park.  It was absolutely awesome and we can't wait to go back! 

17.I Miss You
I miss her smell, I miss her snorts, I miss the late night snuggles, I miss you my little Puffalump!  She's definitely not this small anymore, but she's still our baby...  Oh... how they grow so... very fast!

A sister's love is like no other... 

19.Dress Up
Hannah 2
This is Hannah right before her 1st semi formal dance.  She was so excited, as I was, though all I could see was how grown up she had become.  I miss my little Hannah Banana but... I'm so enjoying spending time with her as a "big" girl!  She holds such a special place in my heart. 

Cherry Upclose
Wanna cherry on top!  My kiddos love it when I put a bright red cherry on their cupcakes.  They're eyes light up at the very sight of them!  

I love the Bokeh during the holidays!  

For some reason I just love this shot!  It's my favorite of Ethan.  It sums him up perfectly!  He's such a little candy hog and those eyes...  Do I need to say anymore?  Love him!

23.Don't Ever Change...
the way you respect others, the way you love me and your family unconditionaly, the way you show compassion for others who you may not even know, the way you share yourself unselfishly...  Even when you're tired of mommy always wanting to take your picture!  Again, again and again!
You'll always be my little "E"    

24.Just Because
We love her...

25.Hopes and Dreams
Reaching for the stars...

I hope to continue to be the best mama, wife and friend that I can be while working hard everyday to reach my dreams and make {all} the dreams my kiddos have come true!
