Feature: Munchkin

20130312-SAG-00514

Munchkin and I have talked about doing a photoshoot of her for a while, (actually a long while…!) we agreed we wanted to do a winter one…except we had a pretty mild winter around here. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ย I knew I wanted at least snow covered trees…

It never happened that we had the right conditions + being in the same city on the same day. ย The ONE perfect day in Jan. was the day I traveled to Alberta. ย I’ll be honest…I had given up.

Well…guess what God gave us on MARCH 12…!? Yup! ๐Ÿ˜€ SNOW! So I took Munchkin for a walk! (Btw, She choose the location for the shoot.)

Who wouldn’t want to take shelter under a tree for a cup of hot chocolate…in a china tea cup?!

We’ve all done this at some point in our lives, eh? ๐Ÿ˜‰

So that’s the story of why I’m posting a “snow-shoot” in March. ๐Ÿ˜€ ย By the time we got home most of it had melted (especially off the trees.) ย Glad we took the opportunity when we did ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the snow, God!

I couldn’t leave without at least one black and white…

Munchkin’s hat was lovingly handmade by one of her other older sisters ๐Ÿ™‚

Cute Kittens (Again!)

I promised myself I would stop posting kitty pictures…until I saw these. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s so fun to have little animals around, but especially during the summer when the kids can spend more time with them outside.

 

They’ve grown up so fast, and are just so fluffy and soft…and just downright cute. (And, I have a weakness for orange cats.)

P.s. No, I don’t promise this is the last kitten post.

Hair Donation

With the summer heat, my little sisters decided to get their hair cut…and donate it. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m proud of them because I was going to do something similar last fall…and totally chickened out when we started measuring how much to cut off. (Guess I’m more sentimental about my hair than I thought!)

Munchkin donated 8 inches of her lovely blonde curls.

Rasco… (remember her adorable photoshoot?) she’s donating 15 inches of her beautiful red hair.

Yeah, a different type of personal post I know… (it’s not even about me!) ๐Ÿ™‚ But I wanted to remember when they did this and chronicle it somewhere… what better place than my blog? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Summer = An Outdoor Tea Party

Sometimes, life is about taking a moment…and enjoying it. ๐Ÿ™‚ In this instance it was taking an extra moment to set up a tea party.

Three of my younger sisters, ready to partake of their tea.

It’s about dressing up…

…and using real china…(a little mismatched though it may be…) ๐Ÿ™‚

A bouquet of flowers from around our house.

It’s about pretty hats…

And German chocolate…and lace.

And tea…

But the best part? Spending a little bit of quality time together…talking, visiting.

Smarties taste better when they come from a pretty dish, wouldn’t you agree?

I had fun setting this up for my little girlies…hearing their excitement as they choose their outfits and hats. The sound of their laughter and giggles and fake british accents during the party.ย They’re such special little kids, after I snapped the pictures I joined them…the memories are more precious than anything else I could’ve done with my time that morning.
