Always remember to forget
The things that made you sad.
But never forget to remember
The things that made you glad.

Let's do 52 * Week 3

This week's theme: abandoned or doors. I put the two together with this image:

Tiny 3/52

Meet Tiny. We found her about a month ago, she was alone, cold and oh, so scared... abandoned. We took her in and fell in love immediately. She won't ever be abandoned again, that I promise.

These days she likes to sit in the sun by the door =). She's a happy kitty now. And I'm so glad we were the ones to find her.

Taylor + Matilda Jane Clothing = Spread the LOVE

If you know me, you already know I'm a huge fan of Matilda Jane Clothing =). I love the adorable clothes, the people who make up MJC and the friends I met thanks to the company. Back in November, Denise (the owner of MJC) decided it was time to spread the love in a BIG way... you can read it here. I asked my girls if they wanted to nominate somebody, and immediately they mentioned their teacher. They typed their email carefully and sent it off crossing their fingers tight.

Hi Miss Denise
We would like to nominate our teacher Mrs E. She spends a lot of money on us, she always gives us rewards like donuts and gift cards for the book store. She acts like it's no big deal, but we know teachers don't earn a lot of money. She also loves us like family and we think she deserves a special present. She has a granddaughter named Taylor, she is 1 1/2 years old and lives by San Diego. That is pretty far from us and she doesn't get to see her very often. We can tell she misses her a lot. She always gets totally happy when she gets to visit her. Oh, and she had four boys, so it's very special that her first grandbaby is a girl!! Girls rock!! We think Taylor would look so cute in Matilda Jane.

Well, a few weeks later, their teacher indeed received a big box of goodies!! For herself and her granddaughter Taylor! She was amazed, I was amazed... we all were amazed. Can you tell =)?

A big, fat
THANK YOU goes to Matilda Jane Clothing!

The story doesn't end here. Taylor came to visit for Christmas and her family was happy to meet me on Christmas Eve to have a little photo shoot with Taylor. Pretty amazing, huh? Thank you, E Family!!

Enjoy the cuteness below =).

Let's do 52 * Week 2

This week's themes were "togetherness" or "metal". Oh, I had so many ideas how to show togetherness... but then life got in the way. The kids went back to school. Homework had to be done. And it rained... or was foggy.

So I ended up with a less-than-perfect image taken during a walk with our pup Claire. It truly shows togetherness for me, walking the dog with my girls... there's nothing else to do but talk to each other, enjoy each other's company. You know how sometimes the entire family can be in the same room... together to the eye, but each person is doing their own thing? We tend to do that a lot. That's why I treasure the moments when there's nothing but true togetherness!

Togetherness 2/52

i heart faces * photo contest * smile

Ok, how does one pick just ONE smile picture? Especially when one has kids that smile a lot =).

Well, in my case I picked the newest one I took... simply because it makes me smile big time. My daughter got her hair cut today... not just a little, but A LOT. She is so happy with her new do, she can't stop smiling!

Kiarra aka Miss Cheeks

Kiarra is sugar & spice and everything nice. Seriously, this girl is sweet with just the right amount of attitude =). Simply love her!!! She's always on the move and has a fabulous imagination... we were looking for jackalopes most of the shoot ;-).

I knew she would wear this dress and just happened to have a blue lollipop handy... yep, I even like to color coordinate the sweet treats, lol.

Oopsy, slightly blue teeth... I guess I didn't think this blue lollipop thing through. Sorry, Laura =).

Look at her eye lashes!!!!

And I love this one, because you can see her dirty finger =). I know, I'm weird...

Thanks for peeking!!
