Amid the Stress…

February 25, 2017 in design     5 comments

This spring we were super excited to not only have a photo session but also a family video made! It was a stressful morning for me. I forgot to bring the shirt I wanted to wear and the weather was kinda crappy. But amid the stress there is always love and beauty. Elizabeth and Amy did such a fabulous of making me forget the little things that went wrong, and helping me remember that my family is my greatest treasure!

Growing Up!

February 19, 2013 in design     9 comments

I was looking for something on my family hard-drive tonight and I came across these precious pictures of Avery from 2004.

We had fun looking at them and talking about how cute she was and if they look like Sonny!

What do you think?!

Also, I recently started a “Growing Up” gallery on the Marla and Shane Facebook Page.

I’m slowly adding to it as I have the time to go back and look through old hard drives.

It’s pretty amazing to see the difference just a few years can make!

Photographs are pretty magical!

Summer of Sonny!

We survived the summer of Sonny! And I am pleased to announce that it went awesome.

So much better than we anticipated. I hear third babies are cool like that!

Now that the big kids are back in school, and summer busy season at work is starting to slow down, I am excited to get back to keeping up with my house, cooking food, and blogging.

I apologize for my lack of content here, but I am sure you understand!

One thing I have been meaning to show you for months, is Sonny’s closet. Um, room. Yes, it is now a room!

We pulled out the built-in shelving in Shane’s closet and created a cozy nook for our little chicken.

When we built this house, just two years ago, we did not know we would need an extra room. We thought about putting the big kids together, or the girls together. But in the end, the closet was the best option. When I tell people that she lives in a closet, I am always quick to add “but it has window treatments and art!”

(And for those of you who are paranoid, there is an air vent in the closet and curtains instead of a solid door!)
