Weekend wrap-up

This weekend we had my cousin's wedding on Saturday, and then I did lots of sewing and a photography session on Sunday!

Lee took the girls hiking on Sunday at some caves about an hour away, while I sewed. Here are some pics from his phone of their fun!










The girls had a blast and when I asked them about it Brielle said, "It was swip-pery in there!"  (slippery)  :-P

Sunday evening I had a first birthday photoshoot for a little guy who was just as adorable as could be. Here are a couple favorites!












You can check out the rest of his adorable session on my facebook page HERE

Happy Monday everyone!

Best Friends

Raya is such a protective Mama bear when it comes to her baby sister. She has been saying some hilarious stuff lately, like "I will go calm her down" and "you are making sissy jealous, and that's not nice!" ....but my mom has the girls today and called to tell me the best one yet. Apparently they were driving and Brielle was upset about something....so Raya reached across to hold Brielle's hand in the car seat and then said "if everyone is real quiet my love will go to her"  
awwwww, they are too sweet together
~Recent Facebook update
 
These two, they make me smile. Seeing them together is proof for me that we're doing a dang good job raising them. What a sweet sister pair--I'm so glad they will always have each other <3
 

 
 
"People come and go, friends change like the weather, but I know my sister is here forever."


 
"Our paths may change as life goes along, but our bond as sisters will remain ever strong."


 
"A sister is a little bit of childhood that will never be lost."


 
"A good friend knows all your best stories; A sister has lived them with you."


 
"Sisters: The ones you can only get mad at for a little while, because you have important stuff to tell them."


 
"I can't remember if I'm the good sister, or the evil one."

 
 
"There is no better friend than a sister, and no better sister than you."

Trendy Tot Tuesday

Linking up again with Lindsay, Megan, and Kelly for another Trendy Tot Tuesday!

I didn't really prepare anything special for this week, so here are a couple outfits the girls happened to wear in the past few days :-)

Brielle in her Target gymnastics leotard and Raya in Naartjie top. (I still LOVE Naartjie but I'm slowly weaning off of the ruffle pants for Raya, and instead buying the tops to wear with jeans. We do some head-to-toe outfits still, but I think it's less "out there" at preschool when she wears the tops with jeans...although trying to blend in more doesn't work so well when she wears a tiara headband lol. She loves wearing that thing and then coming home to tell me about all the little girls in her class who were admiring her :-o )



And here are a couple things on the Naartjie website right now that I'm liking
