Happy Father's Day: All About Dad Printable

Click here to get the file

Father's Day is Sunday! This is a little sheet I made for my girls to fill out for their dad. I'm pretty excited about it, so I thought I'd share for anyone who wants a copy. If you click on the link it will print about 6.5 x 8.5 or you can save the image to your computer and print it any size you would like.

My Best Photographer's Assistant

 My fake photography business has been really busy the last little while! We've been doing two or three shoots a month, sometimes even more.  When I say we, it's because when you ask me to take your pictures you usually get me with my whole family tagging along!  I'm professional like that. However, my kids have learned how to help and they love to be my assistants, even two-year-old Lyndlee holds the reflector for me.  As you can see she is in charge of making the kids smile too.

This morning we did a really fun session! I love to take pictures of kids (& babies), they are my favorite! We did Easter pictures of the cute neighbor girl and her brother.  "My Dami" as Lyndlee calls her, is Lyndlee's best little girl friend. These two are sooooo cute together! And by cute I mean: They are going to be BIG trouble one day!

You can see from the picture that Lynd is a dedicated assistant. Most of the time she made her silly faces behind the camera, but she couldn't resist sneaking into a couple pictures with her friend! At one point she had Ducky covering his eyes with his wings playing peek-a-boo! Super cute! What a little helper!

I had another BIG helper today, Everette! She slept through the whole photoshoot! Which was more help than she knows! Thank you, baby girl!

NOW...if only I had that kind of help finding the time to edit!

Happy Easter Faces

This is our most recent family picture. Our awesome neighbor Angie was out taking pictures of her little Easter Family when we got home from church, and she offered to take some of us. So we grabbed our camera and had a seat on her poarch! You can tell how awesome she is from all the happy faces!

I just plain ran out of time to make the girls Easter Dresses. I had ideas in my head, but they never made it to the fabric. So three days before Easter I headed over to Target and found these cute little dresses. Of course, they didn't have all of the sizes I needed so I sewed ruffles on the bottom of them. Which worked out fabulously cause I now feel like I helped make them, and they are a bit fancied-up.

Introducing Everette Lace

Born six whole months ago and finally getting a shout out on the blog! I guess that's what happens when you're the fourth child. Really it's because we spend all our time loving her so there's no time left for the internet. My hopes are that one day I will go back and post about some of the missing time, like her birth, but let's be honest, how long has it been since my last post? We might just have to be happy with this!
Everette has been so much fun! She is the smiliest baby!
 I can not believe she is six months old already!

Tayvie's First Day of School

This was Tayvie's first day of school! PRE-SCHOOL! I was so nervous for Tayvie to start school. She has always been so shy and timid and anxious, so I worried that she would have a hard time. She has done great from day one! She loves school! She really does!
She has become so much more social.
Tayvie goes to pre-school at an elementary school so she feels like a BIG girl with her own locker and everything!

Ayla's First Day of Kindergarten

 Ayla started Kindergarten today. She has begged to go to school since she was two, so today was a dream come true for her!  I kept expecting her to get nervous at some point, but nope, no nerves at all... she must be her father's daughter. She jumped out of bed this morning with a big grin on her face and said "I can't even stop smiling!"

Today was the first day of school, but it was a short day and the parents got to come, so next Monday will be her real first day on her own. She made friends, drew a picture of herself, colored, did a craft project, and took a little tour of the school and the play ground.

This week Tony and Tayvie also start school. Tony starts at SLCC on Wednesday and will eventually transfer to the U to get his Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering. Tayvie starts her second semester at the U doing speech therapy, and then will also start preschool next week.

It's going to be interesting to keep track of all their schedules... especially when the new baby comes!
