I am spending today remembering the long and beautiful life of my grandfather. I received a call yesterday morning letting me know he had passed over night.

I miss and love him.

Here are a few photos of him with my kids; he got to meet all but Everleigh.

She and I are leaving for his funeral tomorrow.

Melt my heart...

It isn't often that I think another baby is as cute as my own kids... (I think we moms can all honestly say we think our children are the cutest...) But this baby, oh my goodness! She is just the definition of beautiful! With those pouty lips and big eyes, she is going to be something else as she gets older!!

10 Months...

How can this be? My little baby is already 10 months old!!!

She has started standing on her own unassisted (but of course only when there is not a camera on hand), crawling out of her walker and is just chatting up a storm! The child is still a camera ham, and love as much attention as she can get... I have no idea where she gets it... ;o)

Happy New Year!

With the new year comes new promise, new life, and new ... well, everything!

2011 was a good year for our family. All of our children are healthy; Our marriage is stronger than ever; Carl's company is doing really well; My photography skills are slowly growing... but more than anything, our family is happy. I really couldn't ask for more!

Happy New Year to all of you, and I hope that 2012 brings you as much happiness as 2011 has brought us!

May your year be blessed.
