Holiday Wreath

Last month when our girls group got together we drew names for who we would be making a Christmas Gift for.  I drew my friend Tricia who is an incredible painter.  Funny thing was that she drew me as well, which I was super excited about.  I love her work.  The idea was that it was suppose to be hand made and about $20.  I found a holiday wreath I wanted to make on pinterest.  I went shopping for all the things, and spent more than I should have but hopefully I can make a second wreath someday.  Half of the stuff I used was from a potpourri box that I got from Michael and the others I had made with foam balls and yarn and red balls.  The pine cones and pointy balls I collected from the ground...Thank you earth!  Thank God for my husband who is very good at being creative.  We had to hand sew on each piece so that it was on there good enough.  When I would get frustrated and start growling he would jump in and fix the problem.  Anyways here are a few pictures of what we came up with!

The Kiss :)
This is the AMAZING painting my friend Tricia painted me for my gift.  She took it from a picture that we had taken.  Doesnt she ROCK!  Check out her site
This is my birthday gift from my friend Stephanie, that she just finished.  I absolutely love it!  Thank you Stephanie!  Check out her site where she makes baby bedding, cart covers, bibs and nursing covers :)

Birthday Boy

Today I get to celebrate my husband turning 29!  His birthday always lands right around or on thanksgiving, so it's always hard to celebrate and plan a big party.  Next year though I plan to give a big party.

This man is one of the most amazing people I have ever met.  Obviously, I married him after all!  He has a big heart for people, he loves his family, he's trustworthy, honest, respectful, smart, responsible, loyal, and always has great advice.  He is always there for me when I need him to be, even if it means dropping whatever hes doing at that moment.  I always feel safe, and taken care of with him.

David has worked his butt off to have us be in this place of life right now.  I am sooooooooooo proud of him and how hard he has worked.  I am so incredibly blessed to have him in my life and be the father of my children.  Life is so great and I am beyond thankful for you David!  Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here are some pictures from this past year :)

One of his greatest achievements, getting his Masters degree!  So so proud of you!

Fontaine Family

This is my friend Lacy and her family.  She is a great friend of mine that I have known for over ten years now!  As of today they will be my neighbors!  She does photography as well and is totally awesome at it.  She just did our family shoot, and I am so excited to see how they turned out!

Lacy and I never nailed down a date for her pictures due to her moving and the weather.  So when I saw a break in the weather and that it was suppose to be 70 degrees; I called her up and said lets do it today!  I love that she can pull together last min like that.  Her little man Liam didn't get a good nap that day; and I was a little worried that we didn't get a whole lot of picture of him being happy, but we did!  Love you Lacy and your family! ;)

One of my favorites 

Isn't she STUNNING!
