Kassy ~ Senior pictures

After fighting with my computer for 2 days, I am finally posting the last of Krissie and Kassys senior pictures!

I love this pose and Kassy's beautiful smile!
Are those not the cutest boots EVAH!

We had a very difficult time trying to find a field of flowers.

I like this pose too. She is so pretty!
Love it! The wind made this shot! ;)


I had all kinds of ideas and turns out they didn't want very many pictures together. Little stinkers. I got a couple good ones though.

Well senior pictures are done. Now to let it sink in that they are actually graduating! Whew....craziness!

Krissie ~ Senior Pictures

If you know me at all, you know how much I love taking pictures. Lots of them!

There are these 2 special girls that are graduating this year, my little sisters.

We went out a few weeks ago and got Krissies pictures and tonight we are going to get Kassy's.

My only problem with this is that I take LOTS of pictures and then I have a hard time narrowing them down. I was told by my step mom (Hi, Sharon!) that I better only give her 3 pictures.

Well....I narrowed it down to 8. Close enough!

I think this is my favorite! She has such a pretty smile and the lighting was perfect.
She got poison ivy on her legs from this pose. Hehe....I made sure I didn't tell her that was a possibility until after I took the picture. She told me a few days later but the picture is super cute!
She is a natural beauty!
 I drive by this field almost everyday. It was perfect for these pictures! Good thing the home owners didn't care that we borrowed it for the afternoon.
This was a last minute shot. We were getting ready to leave and I saw these 2 trees. I love this one too! It wasn't posed so her smile looks so natural. We were laughing and being silly. I love how it turned out.

Taylor turns 14

Taylor and I have talked for 2 months now about getting her 14 year old pictures. She gave me some ideas and we brainstormed.
Then as time went by we kind of forgot about it. Oops!
 So yesterday we were up early for physical therapy and out and about anyway so we decided to get her pictures. It turned into an adventurous day with scrapped knees, bugs and trips back home but they are finally done.

Taylor turned 14 on March 18. Actually in 2 days, May 18th, would have been her original due date.

She amazes me everyday. She has this sweetness about her that I cant even explain. She loves babies. She hates to sleep. She thinks she is tough stuff now because she has Facebook. She loves the color red.

She smiles a lot! But she can NOT smile on command. So if you saw me jumping around and wiggling like  a crazy person..don't judge.

I had a wonderful assistant. Alyssa helped make Taylor smile and she held her up when Tay felt nervous about me walking away.
We moved to a few different locations and it was much easier to just drag her. Haha....She laughed the whole time. She thinks mommy is silly.

I love her silliness. The way she teases and she cant help laugh. Usually at inappropriate times. I love that she made me a mom. I love the freckles on her nose and her forehead and her cheeks and her ears. I love the way she tries so hard when she wants something out of reach. I love that she tries anyway even though the last 3 times she dumped her cup all over her lap she still tries to get it herself.
I love the way she looks out for her brother and sisters. I love the way she will just start talking about something we talked about a week ago as if we were just talking about it two seconds ago. Just like a woman.

She makes me a better person. She shows me patience everyday. She waits on things most wouldn't dream of having to wait for. Like eating or getting dressed.

When she smiles her whole face lights up. She forgives everyone. She knows when people stare at her. She smiles at them. She tells me about it later.

She has a temper. She loves to watch movies from when she was little. People with disabilities make her nervous. She loves to help with everything I do. She loves to talk.
She giggles sometimes completely to herself. She remembers everything.
Well almost everything. Not so much when I'm trying to get her to remember her math facts but she will remember the name of a dog she saw one time when she was 3. This comes in handy when I am at the grocery store and I forgot my list. Kind of drives me insane when I said something ONE time like 5 years ago and she reminds me. Silly girl.

That's my Taylor.

Spring Fishing Trip

Last week, we took the day off from housework, school and responsibilities to have a fun family day. Some days its feel like there is so much to do that fun never happens so when Brian says "lets have a family day", I am all for it.

So this day we took the kids fishing. A day at the lake is so refreshing. 

Taylor Lou asked me to take a picture of her hand on this rock. She is a silly girl but I love the way the picture turned out for some reason!

I told Bobo to sit so that I could get a picture of him and Taylor but he wouldn't stop giving her sticks!
Carter was getting so frustrated because the girls were getting fish but he was not even getting a bite. 
So he got bored and made himself a fishing pole.
Brians little catfish! He knows better than to try and out fish me. Fortunately this day I was not fishing. ;)
I think he had his homemade pole in the water for maybe 15 minutes before he got his first fish!
We attempted to a family picture. We took, I believe, around 50 pictures. 
Here are some outtakes....

I am not sure what I am doing. I crack up every time I see it. It looks like I am striking some very weird, awkward pose or breakdancing.
Here Bobo would not listen and Taylor is laughing at daddy because he is getting mad. 
I'm not sure what Alyssa is doing.
Umm...the money maker wouldn't exactly fit into the tiny spot they left for me. Ha Ha!
Besides being blurry, smile for Taylor equaled sticking out her tongue!
I finally narrowed it down to this one.
I wish Carter would have been smiling better and Taylor would actually be looking at the camera but she is smiling! I mean its not like I'm hanging it on the wall. Although it does sum up our family pretty well.
 I'm usually laughing at someone and all the kids are dirty.
