Malakai Turns Ten

Today we celebrate our firstborn's first decade of life well lived! Malakai, we love you so much. Spread those wings and soar. The best is yet to come. As we watch God unfolding the plans He has for you, we are honored to be your parents. There is no limit to what you can accomplish and where you can go. Ten years old. Let the celebration begin...


Charles Family

These boys...simply so adorable! I have known their dear, sweet momma since high school when we played field hockey together. So thankful to have the opportunity to capture their sweetness.


Our Family

Well, thanks to my mom (who just had hand surgery last week), we got some updated family portraits at our place over the weekend. It's exhausting on both sides of the camera with lots of shenanigans going on but in the end, it's always worth it. So thankful for our growing brood. It's never dull around here, that's for sure.


The Birthday Girl

Cinnamon rolls for her birthday treat with just the six of us and then when the grandparents came over a few days later, She requested a star cake with a 5 in the middle. I think we filled her order ;) This year we gave her one of my childhood toys and she couldn't have been more thrilled. My Little Pony Perm Shoppe. I remember playing for hours on end with this and everyone is delighted to play with her too. Look at all those Legacy Builders sweatshirts...they wear their Daddy's business name proudly! Oh to be five again...


Hadassah is Five Today...

She has been counting down to her birthday for a week now...6 more days, 4 more days, 2 more days...and today is the day! She turns five and she couldn't be more excited. Starting this day off with pancakes and then she gets her hair cut, and probably lots of other treats and pampering. We are so thankful for this little determined, charming, beautiful daughter of ours. Happy birthday, sweetheart!


Mom's Surprise 65th Birthday Party

This past weekend, my mom thought we were just getting a family photo of us around dad's Dodge Swinger at our house, but little did she know that she was about to roll in to her surprise 65th birthday party...We got her so good. Look at that face! Her dear friend, Dottie helped me tremendously in the kitchen...and the mashtini bar was a huge hit. I am so thankful that the LORD gave us such a gorgeous day to honor Mom!
