June...First Communion

My heart overflows when I look at these pictures, for so many reasons...what it means to June to make her First Holy Communion, how she has prepared her heart, how sweet and innocent she is, how beautiful she is, and how blessed I am to be her mom. I love her so very much.

I was so glad to have time with her this weekend, we walked and talked while we took pictures and enjoyed the warm weather.  Usually, June does not like to be infront on my camera, but this weekend was a different story!  A big shout out to "Cousin Becky" for making June's veil...I wish you could see the tiny detail and how pretty it is...thank you Becky.

Guess who turns {5} today?

Yep, you guessed it....Kendall!  I can't believe this little one turns five today.  What an adventure she has taken me on.  I love her with all my heart and I so enjoy watching her grow and mature.  As I have said before she is "spunky" and keeps us on our toes.  However, lately she is just full of her own personality and is really fun to be around.  She is loving and adores her big sister, she loves to sing and dance, and she loves ponies!  She is inquistive and thoughtful and I forgot to mention funny...and today she is FIVE!
(yes a mom can brag..especially on a birthday)

Happy Birthdaay Kendall!

Rain, rain....

Last week it rained, it rained a lot.  On the way to the bus one day Kendall decided she wanted to do a little bit of puddle jumping...so she did!

I really don't have much for you.  I still have pictures from last fall that I never posted and plenty from Spring to.  I am still working on my {365}, I have been taking pictures but am not caught up to post them.  I may or may not catch up all of them, some are horrible, like a click of the cell phone at the wall bad so I did not miss a day, horrible.  That's all I have today.  Hopefully, I will get to take my camera out a lot this month.  We have two birthdays, prom, and 1st Communion in the next 2 weeks...yikes, better get busy!

Happy Birthday Junie.....

Happy Birthday to my sweet eight year old...oh how the time goes by.  I love this girl with my all my heart.  I was so glad she let me take a few shots of her for her birthday because I never want to forget her beautiful face at every age.  Truth be told she does not like to get in front of my camera anymore so I was very happy she agreed to "one" shot.  Lucky I was fast and grabbed a few more.  This first one is my favorite it captures her perfectly!  In fact the three individual pictures tell her story by the expressions on her face.

June turns eight today and she has been with us for seven and one-half years.  I was in love the instant I saw her and she has continued to brighten each day I am lucky enough to have with her.  I struggle to find the perfect words to describe her, she is strong, stoic actually, she is her own person,  funny, creative, artistic, inquisitive, smart, and, sometimes shy.  Her smile will make you melt and she has a laugh that will fill a room. Just yesterday she said she wants to be an artist and a dress designer when she grows up...if you have seen any of her art and crafting she is on her way.  

Happy Birthday June...we all love you!

Kendall unplugged...

Call me crazy but two posts in one day....just had a little extra time today.  This little gal has her own plan all the time...if you couldn't tell from the outfit.  What you don't see are the heart sunglasses she was wearing before she started to color.  They are actually sitting here next to me as I type.  Not much to say except this girlie makes me smile!

Tissue paper craft..

A few weeks back on one of my weekends off work we spent the afternoon crafting in the sun room.  I had come across this craft on the Fiskars website and thought the girls would love to try it...so after a trip to Micheal's Crafts we were all set!

I purchased a Fiskars paper cutter, a few blank canvases, and lots of tissue paper.  We cut out lots of hexagons and we were ready to go.  All you have to do is "paint" the canvas with water and place your cut pieces of tissue on the canvas...any pattern you want (you could even tear the paper or cut different shapes).  Once the paper is dry peel off the canvas and BRAVO you are done!

Sweet treats...

I love Valentine's day, probably because I love pink and hearts!  Every year I make the girls Valentine's for school( with their help of course) and this year we made some "Sweet Treats" for the teachers and neighbors too!

I found these cute little tags on Pinterest you can print them from "she wears many hats" ..(I also had fun touring her blog).  The jars are half-pint canning jars from Walmart, they are the Walmart brand and I liked them because they have no markings at all on the glass and they were a steal, six dollars and some change for 12 jars.  The best part, Gimbal's jelly heart candy...so good!  I put all of it together with some ribbon and twine I had around the house.  I did have to fill the candy when the girls were not around however, because they would have tried to eat all the candy hearts:)
