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!

When You Have a Front Yard

When we purchased our home 3 years ago the yard (all .27acres of it) was an overgrown forest.

No space to play outside without being attacked by some sort of pokey itchy plant.

We've been working really hard, and really slowly, to get a small patch of it in working order and this summer is the first that the girls have really gotten to play in it!


Maybe in 3 more years the front will be finished.


Just for reference, these are two photos from the first week front yard!

1,000 more yards projects to go, but a level grass filled front yard is a great start!

1 More Year, 1,000 More Photos

We have officially been in our home for 3 years!

This last year has been up, down, and all around.

We've gone from Pre K, 1st, and 4th grade, to Kindergarten, 2nd, and a big bad 5th grader!

We've lost countless teeth from two little mouths.
We've played sports and cheered on teammates.
We've done art projects and countless tests.
We've gone to the movies and played at the park.
We've lived with Aunt's and Uncle's in our home and welcomed new babies into our family.
We've heard baby announcements and smooched newborn cheeks.
We've celebrated with our friends as they pledged their lives to one another.
We've grown our businesses and been supported by our loved ones. 
We've worked hard to provide for our family.

We've been blessed and we've been through hard times.

We've fought.

We've loved.
All in this house that we're slowly making into a home.

1,000 points to anyone who can tell me how many times Scarlett showed us her owie finger.

5 points to anyone who made it this far.

You win.
