Karaoke Queen

We were invited to our neighbor's sister's house the other night for a BBQ and karaoke! They have some friends that have a full-blown karaoke set-up and it was SOOO fun. I have not done karaoke in forever...man, I miss it!! It was hard to remember what songs to sing. Why do I always forget which songs I like to sing when I get the chance to??

Well, turns out, it was not just the grown-ups that were enjoying the karaoke...

How do you like that?! :) I sure did. Just when my mommy tears where beginning to fall, Lacy pulls a move that had me dying of laughter. Love it.

Portrait Crasher

Tonight I had my very first senior photo session! I adore Emily and although I am excited to take her senior pictures, I am super sad because that means she is a SENIOR. What are we going to do when our fabulous babysitter goes away to college?! SO, we only did a portion of her photos tonight and I will not be posting them anytime soon, but I had to share these outtake photos! Take a look at our portrait crasher! (click on the photo to see it larger)









My awesome friends were letting us use their gorgeous field FULL of daisies. However, you can see we were clearly not alone! About 20 minutes after we arrived, Toby came over to tie this hilarious mule to a post, so we could finish the session. Granted, the mule makes for many laughs and acts like a dog, following you all over, but, it was not exactly the look we were going for:) If our evening is a good indicator of all senior portrait sessions. Sign me up, I'm definitely up for more of this! Can't wait till next time Emily!

Summer Portraits

Now that the weather is finally starting to act like summer, I have been taking the girls out and practicing more on portraits. It's really been up and down. I am toying with the idea of pursuing it further, maybe a part-time gig? But, there is SO much to it and I am NO where near good enough to be at that level. I really do love it, so we'll see how it goes. I have and will be taking photos of other cuties besides mine this summer. That should be interesting. Below are some photos from when I took our neighbor buddies out and practiced on them. 

I am trying to tell myself, one day at a time. There is only so much I can do on top of keeping up with the house and 2 little girls! Eddy and I have our eye on a new camera, that would help immensely! We have an ancient Nikon D70s and a new body would be awesome! So, I guess I will just keep plugging along.

Baby's First Words???

Ok, here is a clip of a few of Ashley's first words. I was thinking and should have gotten Ashley to say all of her words, but here is a glimpse at a few:) It cracks me up! We are not short of laughter at our house.
