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!

Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet!

Happy day after Halloween everyone!
Hope you're all enjoying your sugar induced coma rest today!
Yesterday I turned 27 and spent the day trick or treating with my munchkins.
The best way to spend a birthday if you ask me.
We started our adventure off by stoping by Nani and Papa's house to show them our costumes.
I don't know why she's under the piano so don't bother asking.
She's just weird that way.
She's already started shoveling candy and treats into her face.
We ended up taking Uncle Randy and Aunt Chelsea to the school down the street for some begging.
They were handing out full size candy bars and I just couldn't pass up that opportunity.
Spider baby in full costume.
They waited pretty patiently for the trick or treating to start!
Addison did really great with her "pleases" and "Thank you's!".
Scarlett would yell "treat!" and then scream "BYE BYE!".
Everyone thought the little boy was cute.
They don't make any cute girl super hero costumes for 18 month olds.
Then we met up with some new friends and their two adorable kiddos and enjoyed ourselves some trick or treating!
Sorry about the crazy bad focus.
It was super dark and I kind of set it to a certain distance and guessed when to take the picture.
Scarlett did super great for her first time trick or treating!
She wanted to walk the whole time and refused to let anyone carry her.
I know you can't hear it...
but she's shrieking like an injured banshee in this photo.
Definitely wanted to walk like the big kids.
Oh yeah, Paul's growing a mustache for 'No Shave November'.
It's been interesting.
Addison spent most of the evening asking all the home owners what their decorations were about.
Also if we were going to more houses.
She's screaming again in that one.
Also wiggling like her butt's on fire so that Dad will put her down.
All the kiddos did a great job of taking turns for who got to knock.
I never thought that I'd ever spend time dealing with an argument over who gets to knock first as a parent.
Add that to the list of stuff no one ever tells you about raising kids!
Addison got pretty tired of me making her say cheese.
Scarlett did a lot of "jumping" while she walked.
It consisted of shaking her head in the yes motion very vigorously and stomping.
She said "jump" a lot also like it would actually help her feet leave the ground.
Lily and her friend Noah spent most of the evening 10-20 feet ahead of the group.
Gotta hustle to that next house!
He was the only boy.
I kept calling him a girl on accident.
I guess that's what happens when you're surrounded by little ladies all day long!
Sorry Noah!
We eventually told the big kids they had to let the littles go first.
They'd shove past them to get to the candy because they were so excited!
I purchase Addison a super man hat similar to Scarlett's spider man hat but couldn't bring myself to cover up her curls!
This picture looks sweet but in reality Lily is forcing a hug on Scarlett while she shrieks "NO LILY!" at the top of her lungs.
I swear they love each other.
Scarlett promptly held hands with Addison just to make Lily mad.
She's such a turd sometimes/ALLTHETIME.
I was there!
I existed during the trick or treating!
I'll end this post with Spider Baby on a mission.
This is how we spent the majority of our evening.
Making sure Spider Turd didn't run into the street and spill her candy bucket 8 more times or whack any strangers with her glo stick.
All in all we were successful this year!
Can't wait for next year!


  1. So cute! Next time, let me know and I'll make a tutu to wear with the super hero costume so to 'girl' it up a bit!


    1. That would have been amazing Jodi! I didn't even bother correcting people. Hahahahah :)
