Christmas Card Attempt

Every year we take our Christmas card with the dogs. We always have out takes in the Christmas card of how we are trying to get the dogs under control. This year we wanted to be a little bit more silly & creative.

We tried to make an attempt of taking pictures with the dogs, but that was FAIL all over it. We take them ourselves with a timer so it is pretty difficult to do with 2 grown adults and 3 crazy dogs. Soo... we tried again today. Houston weather was great to us, but we were still having trouble with the dogs. My husband had an idea of us on a little tractor pulling a wagon full of gifts and the dogs would look like they are pulling the tractor.

Let me say this now...we would be a terrible dog sled team. They were all out of line trying to chase after squirrels. One of them was laying down because he was bored. It was all sorts of fun. So Mike and I took our regular photo and decided to photoshop the dogs the position we wanted them in. They were really hard to control. After that we took some more goofy shots. We have alot of fun taking these pics every year. We hear a lot of comments about how funny our Christmas cards are.

Thank you LORD for PHOTOSHOP! ha ha!

Here are some of the pics we used and some we didn't use in our card!

2013 Christmas Card

We've been sending out Christmas cards as a couple for a while now. Each year we try to be creative with them (past Christmas cards: 2009, 2010). Each year it gets harder and harder. We either add another dog or a kid. It's hard to get the dogs wrangled up and to look at the camera. It's even harder with kids! This year I tried to take some pictures of some inspiration I saw on pinterest. Here are some photos I took.






The card that I got through Shutterfly.com. Love them!


This year we've been extremely blessed with our new home, the birth of our second son, and a new great job. More importantly we are blessed to have each other. Merry Christmas everyone!! God Bless!

2013 Mother's Day....DIY photo gift

2013 Mother's Day was extra special this year with what my guys did for me. While I wasn't home Mike got out our camera, tripod, remote for the camera and started to take some beautiful DIY shots. His inspiration was "Jett's Day." From getting ready, napping, & going out. It just captured so many great moments of our little guy.

I love the sentimental gifts that kids make their parents. It is worth millions to me. So when I received my mother's day gift from my guys I heart just fluttered with excitement.


Here are the pics from the mini DIY session .....







Mike wanted to put all these great photos in a frame. He had J paint the matte so it was more personable. 


The end result a DIY photo session with a toddler painted matte for Mother's Day. Something I will have and to cherish forever.




Jett's Vintage Train 3rd Birthday Party!

I was really excited about planning Jett's party because we would throw the party at our new home. So many possibilities!! I always try to brainstorm ideas months prior to the party so I can slowly come up with stuff and create them. I started to think of things that Jett was really into at this part of his life.

He loves planes, but we did that for his 1st birthday. He loves tractor, we did that for his 2nd party. Now at almost 3 he loved trains and Superman! So I asked Jett in November, "Jett do you want a choo-choo train party or Superman?" and Jett yells, "CHOO CHOO TRAIN!!" PERFECT!!


I was now thinking of things to do and how to decorate for this party. Of course everything has to start with the invitation. I created the invitation myself. I went with a old style boarding pass. 

You can now purchase this invitation, but personalized  at my Etsy store!
I printed these in cardstock and then stuffed them in kraft paper envelope that I purchased at Hobby Lobby …
