On my 26th Birthday

Aaron’s Birthday Celebrations

Annabelle meets Santa

Good morning. I hope everyone had a great weekend, without too many crazy last minute gifts to buy! We had one main thing on our agenda for the weekend: Get Annabelle to see Santa. We had planned last Monday before she got shots, but Santa was taking a break when we wanted to go. Aaron took off on Friday, and we decided we’d head up. Her typical schedule has her getting up around 1 and Santa had his break then, {Read More}

A sweet first birthday party

A few weeks ago, our sweet friend’s baby girl turned one year old! Amy is apart of our life group at church, and actually the photographer behind the amazing maternity photos we had taken last week!

I meant to share these photos last week but other things {Read More}
