Cookies for Santa!

These precious girls came over to bake cookies for Santa. My brother organized the whole thing and helped them cut the dough into festive shapes and decorate them perfectly. He just adores them and they adore NENE. It was a fun day with lots of sugar, but I think everyone left with a stomach ache!!

Beautiful Colorado

At the beginning of Christmas break I went to Colorado with a group of friends that I am so blessed to have! We had a wonderful time skiing and enjoying the beauty that we were surrounded by.

O LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory
above the heavens.

2 From the lips of children and infants
you have ordained praise
because of your enemies,
to silence the foe and the avenger.

3 When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,

4 what is man that you are mindful of him,
the son of man that you care for him?

5 You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
and crowned him with glory and honor.

6 You made him ruler over the works of your hands;
you put everything under his feet:

7 all flocks and herds,
and the beasts of the field,

8 the birds of the air,
and the fish of the sea,
all that swim the paths of the seas.

9 O LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!

Caris is Greek for grace, and the name of this precious little girl. I took some pictures of her this summer and it is amazing how fast she is growing. I love the laughter and the joy that brings wherever she is, not to mention she has the sweetest smile! See for yourself.....

Hello blue eyes

I love how her sweet little hands are wrapped around this rock held in her moms

Dancing in the Sunlight.

I love the lighting in these pictures! After chasing the sun trying to find good light we ended up in this wonderful field, but we only had a few minutes to shoot! Carlie and Cailer hopped out of the car begging for their suckers, so we bribed them by telling them we needed to see some good smiles first :) They turned out great especially since I had precious models!

Melt my heart!

Usually a picture like this would be deleted, but I love how it shows just how much she is enjoying that sucker!
