How'd I get so lucky...

To have so many fantastic photographer friends? Mindy has offered to come over and take pictures of my cakes. Let me tell you, she is WAY better than I am (not that it's a surprise). Not to mention, we have the added bonus of being able to hang out more than normal :)

Thanks SO much Mindy!!!

2 Year and 4 Year Pictures

My girlfriend Melissa took the kids pictures last weekend and they turned out great, even though the kids weren't super cooperative :) Madisyn was very excited to get her pictures taken by "Jackson's Mommy," which is funny since she's only met Jackson once, when we got her two year pictures! He must have really left an impression!

Here are a few of my favorites (doesn't include Rob's list, which I'll have to post another time). Let me know which ones you like (comments are above the post in this new layout).

Thanks again, Melissa!!!

A Whole New Look!

Madisyn got her wish, she wanted her hair chopped (for fewer tangles). We waited until after the kids' four and two year pictures. I can't believe how cute she looks with short hair! LD looks a lot different too!

Oh my...

(wonder where she got that from?!)

We are a busy family of five! I enjoy time with my husband and kids, running, being outdoors, shopping for deals, and cuddling. My wonderful husband keeps busy playing with the kiddos, hunting, fishing, exercising and working on projects around the house. Madisyn is six, in 1st grade, loves being outdoors and isn't one bit afraid of bugs or worms! Landon is four, a spitting image of Daddy, and is the sweetest, naughtiest and funniest little boy, all in one! Tinley was born February 24, 2012 and has already blessed us beyond belief! Here's a glimpse into our crazy and wonderful lives... hope you enjoy!

Tiece of Cake

I've finally decided to make a blog (Tiece of cake) dedicated to cakes... as to not consume the family blog.
