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 8 (almost 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 almost 1 and the happiest little baby around! She loves clapping, snuggling, shaking her head no, and laughing at her sisters!

Yearly Tradition!

Every year of Addison's life I've taken a photo of her on the 28th of June!

It's one of my little traditions.

One little recap a year to keep track of how much she's grown.

So here she is...

One year older.

One year sillier.

One inch closer to having girly hair.

She likes going to the zoo to look at "Hippo butts."

Eating frozen blueberries and Mommy's smoothies.

Drawing A's.

Wearing dresses.

"Driving" Daddy's work truck.

Sitting in Lily's carseat when she's at her Mom's house.

Riding her tricycle.

Playing with bubbles for hours.


Singing her ABC's, Jesus loves me, and 'Part of Me' by Katy Perry.

Watching Blues Clues, LaLaLoopsie, Dora and My Big Big Friend.

Dance parties.

Playing at the gym.

Snuggling in the mornings.

Taking baths with her sisters.

Reading bed time stories.

Throwing fits.

Going to the Park with her sisters.

Kissing legs 10 times in succession.

Playing dress up with Lily.

Telling me what all of our family members REAL names are.

She DOESN'T like:

Being told what to do.

Being called Baby girl.

Taking naps.

Anyone but Daddy calling her Addy-Doo.


I love you baby girl...


I mean Addison.

Fathers Day Tasks

We call Daddy many things around this house.



Daddy Monster.


Mr. Sexy Pants.

That last one's my personal favorite.

As the weather gets nicer and the girls play outside more he's been called 'The Pooper Scooper' pretty frequently.

Today was no exception.

This is becoming a pretty common sight around here...

always accompanied with a chant.

"Pick up that POOOOOOP! Pick up that POOOOOOOP! Pick up that POOOOOP!"

Oh the things a Daddy will put up with for the love of his babies.

You are greatly appreciated Daddy!

Happy Fathers Day!

Lily is a First Grader!

Lily Graduated from Kindergarten today!

A big thank you to Mrs. Hagey for putting up with her all year long!

The lighting in the gradeschool gym was AWFUL so this is the best picture I got...

Zoning off during awards.

Oh well!

I got video of all the songs they performed!

Enjoy two of the songs that she performed with her classmates...

Congratulations Little Lady!

You're the best First grader we know!

She Didn't Get if From Me...

There's no possible way.

I'm gonna let Paul take the fall for this behavior.


All his fault.

Childrens Museum

Two years ago we took Lily and Addison to a Children's Museum in Salem.

Addison was still a little too young to really enjoy the experience but Lily has been pestering me to take her back to that museum at least once a month since then.

Needless to say she was super stoked when we surprised her after a soccer game with the good news that we were going to return to that place of childhood dreams!

These pictures are a couple weeks late because my camera died halfway through our trip.

I may have been a little pissy about it.

Just know that this museum has more then 4 rooms and ALL of them are awesome!

Well worth the hour drive to get there!
