Christmas and a New Year

This holiday was a wonderful one.
We have hardly been home the past couple of weeks, and our insanely messy house is to show for it...
parties, Santa, games, dinners, movies... the list just goes on.
Dust has been lucky enough to have had about 10 days off from work, and we have been taking full advantage. I love this time of year... I love my family and I adore how we all spend it together.
I am in a bit of a blogging rut... I feel I have lost my "voice" (if you will)..
but mostly I just want to document how grateful I am at this time in my life. I am so blessed. I have two beautiful daughters, and a wonderful, hard working husband. My family is my world.
2008 was a plentiful year...
and 2009 looks to be a good one.
So Merry New Year to everyone...
and happy as I really am...
here's to me NOT having a baby in 09' :)

silent night

i know.
there truly is nothing better than a sleeping baby
and lucky me has been blessed with just that.
since about two weeks this little one has been sleeping a six hour stretch at night and i love her all the more for it :) having two kids is busy. i am so often caught up in keeping with a schedule that i forget to just sit back and enjoy my sweet babies.
sunday morning we were doing our usual pre-church dash , when i happened to notice miss louise snoozing so peacefully on our bed. i was hit so hard with this immense love for her. our sweet little bean was born into a bit of craziness ( much thanks to our eldest ), but for the most part just goes right along with it. she doesn't require much... just feed her, and cuddle her.
even though we were running oh so behind, i couldn't help but stop and take in the joy that she is.
oh little tootse...
i love you...

Need a Gift????

Let me help!!!!

I've had a number of people inquiring about oliverminie j., and when I will be booking shoots again. I am in the process of re-working my pricing and packages and antipcipate to be up and running again come January.

However, after many e-mails and phone calls I have decided to offer a holiday gift card for anyone interested... forget giving the ever-so boring clothing item and give a gift that will be remembered.

E-mail me at for details. The gift card will be available at a discounted price from the new January pricing, so call soon... I will only be giving out a limited number!!!!

Happy Holidays!

It's Christmas time...

Is anyone else floored by that?
Maybe it's the no snow thing throwing me off, but sere, how is out most beloved holiday already here??? It feels slightly insane.
Life is busy with the girls.. lovely, but busy.
I am finally feeling like I can actually handle two children, which let's all just give one big shout of hallelujah because it was a little touch and go for a while there.
Poptart is 4 weeks today and is definately as delicious as she sounds. She is such a good baby... last night she slept 6 hours straight! I know.. who does she think she is??
She makes the most hilarious grunts, and to accompany such cuteness can pass some serious wind... really nice and feminine. And to top it all off she is the number one cuddle bug of the house.. she love, love, LOVES to burrow up to your chest, stick out her frog bum and doze, and is infact doing that this very moment with me. Yummy baby girl....
Miss Moodles is as crazy as ever. I have no idea where all of this personality of hers came from all of the sudden but I will take it. She toddles around the house like she runs the place (let's be honest.. she does), and wreaks havoc every wobbling step of the way. She also is all of the sudden talking, and attempts to repeat eveything you say. She knows Santa says "Ho, Ho, Ho" yet she insists on growling at every Santa decoration we pass. Most of the time she loves her sister, and would lay and blow zerbers (sp?) on her face all day if I would let her. Dustin is particulary in love with Missy Moo these days as yes, she is all goodness wrapped up in a 17 month old, but also because he has really stepped up with her care giving since Poppy's arrival. She has him wrapped around her finger.
Life is good...our little family is our life, and we are so in love our baby girls.
It might not feel like Christmas quite yet, but it definately feels like the most wonderful time of the year.
May your days be Merry!
