Happy Friday Y'all

My posts can ramble so here's a way to keep them short.  Link up here: Five on Friday

1.  We are in full swing with our fall ware over here.  And by we I mean Georgia and I.
(click the pictures to see them larger)

2.  I made two QUICK home updates that have rocked my world.  I put cup hooks in the cabinet where I keep our mugs.  Jonathan and I obsess over mugs and it just organized them so much neater.  The other thing I did was to find a spot to hang G's favorite school work.  Love it.

3.  I've been super busy booking sessions left and right.  Such a blessing for me.  You can take a peek HERE.  I am SO grateful to the families who have taken a chance on me this past (almost) year.  These are the previews from just this past week!

4.  Because you need some humor in your day.  Take a look at this.  My mom says we may have created a monster (she loves admiring her self just a bit too much.) but that toosh!

5.  Yesterday (and the entire month of October) is Miscarriage and Infant Loss Awareness.  Couldn't let yesterday go by without lighting a candle for the little one we lost in May of this year.  You can read more HERE.

That Time We Had a Pet Squirrel

If you want to see the cutest thing ever, just scroll to the bottom and watch the video.

So, we were in our back yard and Jonathan suddenly says there is a baby squirrel on the ground.  It took me awhile to focus and see it but there it was.  Curled up on the ground.  We knew he hadn't been there for long because we have an outside cat and well, the squirrel was still alive.  It was knocked out but rattled itself awake although still very confused and tired.

So, we scooped him up (with gloves on) got him warm and then fed him.  My niece and Georgia went crazy over the baby and named "it" Rose.

So, we kept Rose alive all night and then shipped her off (and by shipped I mean Jonathan took her on his way to work) to a loving family that has experience in raising wild animals.  Her name is now Roo and she/he is doing wonderful :)

Halloween Costumes {2014}

This year Georgia decided to be Fern from, "Charlotte's Web".  Such a sweet, classic character and super simple costume.

In the past she has been:

Cinderella Bride (per her request!)

Yard Gnome

and, a Mermaid

Costume ideas are so fun!

So, it's Monday

This weekend we've really been loving the great out doors.  The weather is just lovely.  

I wear boots EVERYTIME I go outside.  We've seen snakes in our yard (3 since July) so the boots make me feel safe.

We even had a picnic on Friday underneath our favorite Magnolia in our front yard.  It was wonderful.

We've played dress up and gone to kid's birthday parties...

and, adult birthday parties

 We also helped clean out my grandmother's house a bit.  We now have more stuff in our garage and the entire situation is very bitter sweet but I'm sure once she's settled in the nursing home we'll all feel better.  I love seeing my grandmother's childhood table in our living room.  That's not its permanent home but that's where it has landed for now.

Happy Monday!

This Week

Another school "week" has come and gone.  Well, almost gone.  Georgia doesn't go to school on Fridays and I've always considered Friday the weekend, so this week is practically over.


This week was filled with lots of family and friend dinners which I don't have photographic evidence of.  But it happened.  I only have this one photo to prove we hung out with family.  Found their make up.  Georgia is sweating hers off.

I REALLY wanted a cupcake and so did Georgia but we didn't have butter so I improvised and made these sugar free, gluten free  Nutella cupcakes and icing.  They weren't amazing but they were good.

My good deed for the week.  Check.  Rescued this little guy.

My grandmother is 90 and wants a picture of Georgia EVERYDAY.  She's 90 so she gets what she wants.  I call them Nannygrams.  Here are a few.

We played a lot and played outside a lot more than usual because the weather is getting so much nicer.

Georgia LOVES her daddy.  The fact that he goes to work is a hard pill for her to swallow every single day.  I did manage to snag a picture of them cuddling and a picture of them before Georgia's open house.  (The wall on the open house picture looks strange because I took the name of her school off of it.  Safety first!)

Before our house gets finished I took the opportunity to write scripture into our home.  Literally.  The one in red is Georgia's room.  The left is the entry way and the right is the dining room.  They'll be there forever now!

Clearly I love these big headbands, from HEB, these pictures are 8 month apart.

And her Daddy is standing behind me.  Hence, the smiles.

Hope everyone is loving October as much as we are and hope y'all have a great weekend!
