About Me

My photo
Our family consists of Paul/Daddy. He loves his little girls, wife and family more than anything in the world. Velvet (aka MaMa Velvet or Mommy). I'm a photographer and very happy stay at home Mom who can't get enough time with my little ones! Lily (aka Monster or Princess). She's our 12 year old smart, talkative, beautiful young woman who is impressing us everyday! Addison (aka Doo or Addi). She's 9, artistic, sensitive, lovely young lady who has a quick sense of humor! Scarlett or Bo for short! She's 7, sassy, outgoing, cute as a button and has a passion for a few very select food groups! Finally we have our littlest princess, who has blessed us with her presence until it's time to go home. She's 1 and the happiest little baby around! She loves clapping, snuggling, shaking her head no, and laughing at her sisters! She's incredibly smart and uses sign language to communicate most of her needs until she learns to use her big girl words. We are loving on her with every ounce of our being!

No Shoe Left Behind...

My beloved baby girl has developed a habit.

If you happen to leave something lying around the house (i.e. phone, shoes, purse, drink, etc;)  she'll pick it up and hand it to you with a loud "gum!" (welcome in Addison speak).

When you say thank you and set the item back down, she picks it right back up and hands it back to you.  Once again "gum"ing you in the process.

Case in point,  a week and a half ago we packed the family up and headed to the beach for a camping trip with some close friends.  We all made it down to the beach around the same time and left all our stuff in a pile away from the water.

We weren't planning on wandering far so there was no need to be worried about our pile.

Addison however felt differently.

Uncle Stephen happened to leave his flip flops a ways away from the mass pile.

Addison could have none of that.

Poor unsuspecting Aunt Dani just happened to be the closest person.

"Um, excuse me... I think you may have possibly left this too far away from your person.  I've brought it back to you. You are welcome."

"What do you mean these shoes are Uncle Stephens? Oh dear."

"I'm sorry for the inconvenience... I'll take those from you."

"Here Uncle Stephen."


(i.e. Welcome!)


  1. Now you just need to focus that into her picking up toys. :) Too cute.
