I have been working on my photography as much as possible the last few months which after working full-time, going to grad school and taking care of my family isn’t much. I am thinking of switching just to a photography blog so that I can share all my pictures with family, friends and maybe even possibly clients. I know I do have a few that still check this blog though (hi Dad!) so I am going to share a few of my kids for now. I am hoping to have my photography blog up in the next month or so though.

We met Han and Steve at a park in Plano this weekend so I could take some pictures of sweet adorable Addi. I thought I would try to get a couple of the kids as well while we were there. I wasn’t expecting much but actually got some where they are all looking at me! Here are a few from the morning…

We made it…

Well, we all made it through our first week back to school. Sofia seems to be enjoying kindergarten and Charlotte is getting right back into the swing of things in 1st grade. They both have great teachers this year and I am excited to see them grow more this year. I really like the group of kids this year and am optimistic about my year. Here are a few pictures from the first day of school…

Winding down…

Well our summer break is starting to wind down although I don’t think our summer temperatures are going to be winding down anytime soon. Our upstairs A/C unit went out a few days ago and while it is back in action now we all spent several days sleeping together as one big family in the living room 🙂
The girls are so excited to start school especially Sofia since she will be going to kindergarten this year. I am not exactly ready to go back to school but it will nice to be back in a routine of some kind.

Michigan 2010

Once again we had a great time visiting all our family in Michigan this summer. The girls had so much fun playing with all their cousins! We stayed with sister this year for the first time since we had to bring Aslan and my mom just moved into a new condo. It was nice being able to spend so much time together this year and the kids appreciated having other kids around the whole time. We had a good time in the U.P also, although it was much warmer than it has been that past few summers and no A/C.
We had a nice little birthday party at the park for Sam and my grandpa. He had fallen the week before we got there but was feeling well enough to come out and celebrate with us.

We celebrated Sam’s 2nd birthday in the U.P. with Neal’s family. We found him a Yo Gabba Gabba cake which is his favorite show right now. He loved the cake and it was great having so many cousins there to celebrate with us!

We also celebrated the 4th while we were there. The kids has fun at the parade before the fireworks.

We also got lots of time in at my dad’s house, hanging by the pool.

Yes that’s right-snow in Texas! Not just the light stuff that falls then melts right away like we are used to getting here. Real snow, the wet stuff, and it just kept coming. We woke up Thursday morning to a good coating of it, more than we are used to around here but then it just kept coming. It snowed continuously until well after dark. These pictures were taken in the late afternoon several hours before it finally stopped. It is now Sunday afternoon and most of it has melted now but it was definitely a white weekend.

Playing Catch-Up

My poor blog has been so neglected lately. I have been so busy keeping updated on Facebook that I have completely forgotten about the blog. I guess I need to play catch-up. We went to isney almost 3 months ago and we had an absolute blast. We all are looking forward to going again and bringing Sam along. It was really hard to leave him for so long but we were able to do so many things that would have been difficult to do with a 16 mo. old in tow. They got to meet all the princesses, several fairies and many other favorites. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the trip…
