Through and through (WW#3)

She is a Kent though and through…

Beautiful Helper

When I posted this on FB the other day, it asked me if I wanted to tag myself. She is my clone.

She looks so much like Adam.

Adam circa...well he won't let me tell you ;)

It’s crazy how different and how much alike they look. Despite the comparison photos they are a perfect blend of both of us. 🙂 Love my sweet girls.

Happy Wednesday y’all.

Our first baby (WW#2)

Our sweet Labrador, Jersey, passed away last Saturday. She was born December 26, 1999 and was with my husband 7 years before he and I ever met. She was our first baby, and survived a lot in her first few years. She was a good dog, one of the sweetest I’ve ever met. I will miss her dearly.

Is this not the cutest picture?

I have to believe that she’s in a better place. She’s waiting for us on the other side. She has all the new tennis balls she could ask for, and we will play fetch again one day.

Love you sweet Jersey.

One Year…

Our Queen of Hearts

Our Queen of Hearts

My sweet Savannah turned 1 on July 3rd. I can’t believe that it’s been a year. She brings so much joy to our lives. She is so different from her sister (yet they are a lot alike). It’s been amazing to watch her grow and learn and to see the love she has for everyone around her.

I found a red dress on clearance after Christmas and when I saw it I knew it would be her party dress. She is our Queen of Hearts so naturally we did an Alice in Wonderland theme.

Scarlett was Alice.

The perfect Alice

And of course our Queen of Hearts.

Queen Bee

All hail the queen!

I made the crown out of lace! Isn’t it adorable? I call that a Pinterest win! A friend gave me the idea and she got it here from Tatertots and Jello (I LOVE the name of her blog!).

We had lots of yummy food, and Adam’s Aunt made the cake. She did an amazing job and even whipped up some strawberry tarts. (They were SO good!)

Tea Party

Note the flamingos 😉

Cakes fit for a queen!

Don't these look yummy?!

I had grand plans to make a cute fabric banner to go on her high chair, but it just didn’t happen. I realized I had some crepe paper streamers left over from another party and decided to bring them with me at the last second. I think it turned out pretty darn good!

We ate lots of yummy food, and spent time with our family and friends. We opened gifts, and got lots of cuddles from this special little girl that we love so much.

Yummy

Viewing life anew…

I’m still here. There are many excuses for all of the things that have kept me away from the blog, but simply put, life happens.

While I was away Savannah decided to go and turn 1 year old on us! She is the light of our lives, my little bundle of joy.

Scarlett had  her first “piggy” tails (as she calls them) and her first hair cut. Girls are just getting way too big.

I have lots to write about, just have to find the time. Life just keeps on happening.

Miss you, be back soon.
