My number one fan!

Teagan loves her mama!!

And her mama's shoes!

Presley turned three!

Back in June, Presley turned three!! I can't believe she's three!! Well she's a lover of the tea parties, so I thought I better jump at the chance to have a tea party before the love was over. So we had some friends over, dressed up, drank some tea, and ate some pedifores. It was adorable!! I had just as much fun getting everything ready as they did at the tea party. Keep in mind Hubby took most all the pictures at the party, which I am thankful for, I just didn't want to take all the credit! :)

Picture for the invitation!

the little girls having a tea party!

blowing out candles!

all dressed up!

And little sister, too!

Friday night outings!

It has been a while since I've updated on my own two growing girls. Forgive me!!

Earlier this month, we went to Peter Piper Pizza. The girls love it and since they sale beer by the pitcher, what's not to love??

On the motorcycle!

Teagan on the merry-go-round, a favorite ride of theirs.

And Presley on the merry-g0-round.

It ain't perfect...

but it'll do!!

We tried to do another cousins picture. This was as good as it got with 5 out of 6 kids 3 and under! You can't really see their outfits all that great, but Aunt Mac got them all the cutest black and white coordinating outfits from Old Navy. So we capitalized on the cuteness and snapped a few!

Presley was so excited about holding one of the babies, who both were ON. THE. MOVE.!! Madden and Teagan were doing their own thing. And OE (cousin code for Chloe) did good at helping corral the youngin's, and afterwards let me take some of just her! She'll hardly let me have my fun, so I jumped at the chance to play paparazzi of a pre-teen super star!! At least that's what I think of her! :) More of JUST her coming soon!

From left to right: Madden (almost 2 years), Teagan (20.5 months), Dovie (1 year), Chloe (12 years), Presley (3 years), and Willa (1 year).

Holly and family

My sweet friend, Holly, from my college days at SFA came and paid me a visit while she and her family were visiting one of her sisters who lives in this neck of the woods. What a treat!! I got to meet her 8 month old daughter for the first time. And I wanted them to meet my girls too and I was thinking "fun informal shoot". In theory this sounded perfect. This was Teagan when she wasn't screaming and crying and wanting me to hold her!

So I literally did half the shoot holding Teagan! Distracted? Ummm, yeah! In a nutshell, ALL professionalism was thrown out the window!!

Despite the aforementioned, here were a couple of my favorites! Thank you Holly for fitting me into you vacation schedule, and bringing your beautiful Marlee and the rest of your sweet family over! I enjoyed every minute (again, despite the aforementioned!)!

Note to self: informal or not, get sitter for the girls!

Martinez family

This is a family of photogenic folks. Seriously, they couldn't take a bad picture if they tried! And they are all so beautiful, inside and out! AND they all have so much personality which I think bubbles over in this picture! Thanks, Monica!
