Easter photos

We had a beautiful Easter this year. The weather was sunny and gorgeous. The sun was a little too bright to take outdoor photos. But we managed! :)
Mike bought the kids rabbits this year. The kids are enjoying so much! We can't wait until they start having baby bunnies!
We thank God for his blessings. They are rich and abundant!

Almost Spring Photo Shoot

Lately, I've been in the mood to take photos of my children. Although, come to think of it.....I do this about every year when Springtime rolls around. This photo shoot evolved after I photographed a card. I realized the light streaming through the dining room window was PERFECT for picture taking. So, I had a couple of the kids jump in the dining room chair and snapped a few pictures. Unfortunately, my oldest daughter wasn't home.....I'll have to grab her soon and get a few photos of her. The photos of my middle daughter were taken on her birthday last week.

Going on six.....

Oh My!! She's 3 1/2

Eight ALREADY!!!!!

Simply Grace

Grace, as you may already know. Is quite eccentric. She loves deciding on what outfit she is going to wear each day! On top of that, she puts a lot of thought into her hair accessories. This photo speaks volumes. She brought all these hair pieces to Mamaw Kemp..... Together, this is what they came up with. Of course, Grace felt lovely by this time. So, I had to seize the moment and photograph it....... As you can see, in some of the photos. Her face wasn't even washed. Thankfully, it was a warm day in our Buckeye State. So, I was able to take the photos outside.

Grace has an intense passion for changing shoes several times a day. These pink, polka-a-dot shoes happened to be the ones she was wearing at the time. She seems to want to wear these quite often. This pair, must be one of her favorites?!

Penguin CUP*cake*

We had a surprise birthday party for my cousins 11 yr. old daughter while they were visiting and I needed something that was QUICK and CUTE! This is what I came up with......The total cost of the cake (minus the candles, I already had them on hand) was $9.00. I bought the penguin for $4.00 and the mini cupcakes for $5.00 (the mini cupcakes were 12 for $2.50, I bought two packs ) . I arranged the mini cupcakes around the penguin on a large oval platter. I used 11 mini cupcakes. I placed the extra mini cupcakes on a cupcake stand I had on hand. It held the rest of the mini cupcakes. And believe me! It was plenty of cake! We still have the whole penguin left and there was almost a whole pack of mini cupcakes left. Of course we had the cake with a meal and other deserts but if you just needed a cake as an accent to a party. This is a perfect way to go!!

Christmas photos 2008

Here's a few more photos......The odd shaped photos have been cropped.

We had an outside photo shoot for our family Christmas photos this year. It was freezing!!! Around 30 some degrees! We were more than ready to get back in where it was warm! It was getting dark so some of the pictures didn't turn out as well as they would've if they were taken earlier in the day. Happily, I got all the cards in the mail today!! What a relief to have that accomplished! I have more photos to add but blogger is not cooperating right now. I'll have more later.
