5 Thoughts

1. I will admit I dread the teenager years- I seriously think Alex is going to give me a run for my money. So for now, I am trying to enjoy that she does things like make the family "breakfast", complete with table decorations.  Plastic donuts never tasted so good.

2. Monday we made it back to Knotts again, if you missed what Alex did- make sure you go back and read this post.  She is quite the girl.

3. Tuesday I did a newborn shoot, it was in the client's home so very different than what I am used to and today while you are reading this, there is a good chance I am right in the middle of another photo shoot, this time newborn twins!

4. It began... Alex is currently in two sports, basketball and soccer.  Basketball runs through the first week of March. Thankfully basketball will be over before the soccer games begin, just practices now.  She is one of the youngest on her basketball team and the oldest on her soccer team, it definitely makes a difference.

5. When I did my shoot on Tuesday, Ryder spent the day with my sister.  Her neighbor came over and brought her 4-year-old daughter.  At first Ryder told them, "I already have a girl friend her name is Aubrey." In the end he decided two-girlfriends are good and they had a blast playing together.

What made your five this week?


  1. You've been doing so many shoots lately! I think that's awesome! I hope it goes well with the twins today!

  2. What a cutie pie you photographed! It sounds like your photography is really taking off. That's super exciting. By the way, that sushi looks so scrumptious. It's about time I had some delicious sushi. Looks like you had a full week. Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. Alex makes me laugh. You really are going to have a run for your money in a few years. ;) And Ryder with two girlfriends? SO CUTE.

  4. Love your Valentine table and breakfast. And the little baby you photographed is an angel! Here is my post. I couldn't find a place to link up.

  5. I am so late that I got to see what you did in BOTH photo shoots, just gorgeous!!

  6. You have been busy! ;) I'm sure Alex is doing great in both sports!

  7. I used to dread the teenage years, but I'm starting to get a hunch that with my three boys, it's not going to be as bad as I had thought.

  8. Mom, you're missing in that Vday dinner picture... tripod! :). haha! I love that you had plastic donuts. You think Alex is going to be a handful? I've always heard that girls are easy and then hard where as boys are hard then easy. You'll have experience with both so let me know if what I heard was right :)

    1. There is another that Eric took with me in it, but yes should get out my tri-pod and get all of us. Yes, boys are often more difficult when they are young as they just get into stuff, but the teenage drama.. time will tell :)
