To Love..too be in love...two in love.

Yesterday was such a wonderful day. Not only was it Thanksgiving. We celebrated my moms 60th Birthday. My brother and his fiance were in town and they made sangria which were a big hit. (especially with my mom!) And of course we ate way way too much!

During the afternoon, my brother asked if I would take their engagement pictures, so we drove to a beautiful location and I snapped away. It was easy to take them since they were so obviously in love. I am so thankful for Marne and how she has changed my brothers life for the better. She is such a beautiful person inside and out.

Thoughtful Thursday.

I know Christmas can be stressful for everyone, but this year and like every year there are those who won't receive anything for Christmas. My daughter was so excited when she got the information about Operation Shoe Box.
All you do is fill a Shoe Box with things such as crayons, toothbrush, candy, toys, ect. She worked for several days getting all the items together and then wrote a note to the child (whom we don't know) and place stickers all over the outside of the box then she took it to school today.
Her school will ship all the boxes over seas to less fortunate children. I think it was such a great idea to get the kids involved in giving at Christmas time. It also helps them be apart of the Spirit of Giving.

Happy Birthday Ty!

We celebrated Ty's 2nd Birthday this weekend. It was a small party with only family. I mean really it is about the only chance I am going to have to not have a big party for him. We decided to make it simple. He wanted to do the Car's theme.
One of his favorite things was this great activity table. He can use his cars and trains to play with it and the best part is the tracks don't come apart! No work for mom...

He loves Word World. They have the cutest toys out there for the show. This was actually plush letters that were held together with magnets. Love it!
I think my other kids were just as excited as he was about getting new stuff.
