About Us

My photo
We met over 8 years ago at church as Shaun was walking in and I was walking out. The few words exchanged sparked an interst that kept Shaun coming back. When we FINALLY began dating 4 years later we soon knew there was something special here. Our first year quickly flew by and we both decided we never wanted to spend another year with anyone else or without each other. We married in the place where it all began on January 1, 2011 (1/1/11) and gave birth to our beautiful daughter Ava Marie on September 22, 2011 our next little one, Clara Rose came 16 months later on February 11, 2013. This blog began with our preparation with our wedding and has entered into recording the days and events of our newlywed life and new motherhood.

"Almost" Wordless Wednesday-more Christmas"y" pictures

Pooped and watching "The Bells of St. Mary's" with "Da-da"

 Finding the "Elephant" on the Christmas tree (followed by her elephant impersonation)

  Opening her Stocking (it took us ALLLlllll day)
 Cups for the bath
A super cool "sports bottle" sippy cup (like her favorite one)

New teethers that JUST might reach those pesky back teeth
Let's try em' out right away

Awww... a smile for her duckies... she sure does love her some duckies!

Her very own Nativity set.  She's already kissed Jesus a zillion times and tries to put Joseph to sleep in the manger (I think she knows that Daddy's don't always get enough rest caring for their families) and when he's awake (probably working) Mary sleeps WITH baby Jesus in the manger according to her.  The stable was a SEPARATE gift from Nana (because her Nativity didn't come with one).  She just loves it!

New Winter outfit from Nana!

And cupcake hat from a thoughtful parishioner!


  1. It's been really fun to see her grow from a baby into a toddler and see how she plays!! She's a cute little player. I love watching little players, in their own little world...I have a few!!

    Love that cute little hat!!

    Simeon's jammies are similiar, his has moose all over and cute moose feet just like her feet!

    1. I bet you do have a few! Love watching children play.

      Isn't that hat the cutest? We actually bought her a cute little penguin one that we realized looked cuter on the rack than it did on her (some hats are like that), so we needed another one and see how God provides? She's his "lil cupcake"

      I bet Mr. Simeon looks super cute in his jams. Thank goodness for Carter's, huh?


Go ahead and say hello! I love comments!
