of course it is pink

We started the madness that is "Christmas decorating" in our home over a week ago...after all we decided on multiple trees this year. So, I thought we ought to get going early if we were going to have everything up in time for our 1st get together- November 30th.
We are all up and rolling now--all 6 trees and garland galore.
Decided to let HG and Rowan have their own trees this year. They are covered in their own ornaments. Here are a few pictures of Hayden Grace's...of course it is pink.
Lot's more trees to photograph- I will post pictures soon :)

gotta have glitter...

and little feathered white birds...

and heels!

ta da!


This week Hayden Grace says to me, "Mommy, why do we eat Turkey at Thanksgiving?" I explained a brief story of the Pilgrims/Indians...and she said, "Well didn't they know how to make Peanut Butter and Jelly"?
Hm...that is a good question. Guess this shows how much PBJ we eat. whoops.
She cracks me up.

And Mr Pouty face...rarely will he smile in a picture...so it's a good thing his pouts are cute!

Bella-Licious Time!

So, you know how the old point-and-shoot camera is...but some of these pictures were just too cute because of the BELLA's in them!

Jamie, me and Wendy crammed in Sassy's VW-Bug while Kim drives us to our Mini-shoot! Thanks Kim! :)

Aww---now this one is when we were getting ready to spend our last few hours with Miss Suz herself... (okay, so my pics are not chronological)

AND--Yes, the too amazing and terribly talented Kim at Olive Juice and Co...her aprons really are the best!
