School Valentine's Ideas

I have finally figured out a Valentine for Avari to give to her class at school. Thanks to Skip to my Lou for this awesome idea. I can't decide between the flower or the butterfly. Both are too cute!!! I'll let Avari decide. Or maybe we should just do both!!

Can't wait to get started on these! Avari is going to love it!

Family Photos

My Grandmothers birthday is February 8. We decided to do updated family photos for her birthday since the ones she has up are from, like, the 1980's. Literally!!

I got the chance to use my new camera I received for Christmas for more than just snapshots and I have to say that the pictures turned out better than expected. Maybe I have a career as a photographer! HA!

All of the kids: Sharon, Tuttie, Beverly, Tank, Tricia (my mom)

And again, I love this one!!

I love this one of my mom and little brother Vance.

All in all it was a good day and we got lots more pictures. My grandma is going to love them!

A Little Experiment

I think I may have a little photographer on my hands. Every time I have my camera out, Avari wants to take pictures. Since I received a new camera for Christmas, I decided she should have my old one. So begins my through the eyes of a three year old...Enjoy!!
