a week of firsts and the new perfect dessert!

Last week was full and fun. Kiva and Jada now have MATCHING car seats! Kiva's first big girl car seat!... Pink and brown polka dot Marathon car seats...Kiva had to move out of her infant car seat due to the weight limit issue :) They are super cute and matching. Kiva just faces the back...for another 5 months. Here is Jada showing off her new seat!

Last week I got my first point-n' shoot camera that has one of those nifty video cameras in it. It is an "elph" and so far it has been fun. I decided that I was tired of missing little moments with the girls b/c my big camera takes up way too much room in my purse and I just can't worry about apple juice spilling on my expensive lenses....SO, I slip my new elph into my purse and use it in all sorts of places! I have to say that it is truly a bit strange to simply point and shoot...seriously, but it is nice to just snap it and roll with it for the sake of time! So, you will see lots of flash photography in the pictures now on the blog...but there will be more of them! And soon we will even have video! goes!

We celebrated my sweet friend Shauna's birthday on Thursday. It was our first family trip out to lake Bryan! It was fun...we can always count on Shauna for a good party with family, kites and food! The first posted pics from the elph:

beautiful sunset and Shauna's sweet sis playing in the sand with Jada's new friend Ava

On Friday Kiva Bear had a big day....Her first bow in her hair :) and her first tooth!!We had dinner with MiMi and PaPa...we sat out on the patio and it was so beautiful...a nice breeze and the girls were both so much fun!
and afterwards Brian and Jada went home and had a little concert. Jada's princess vanity doubles as a keyboard with a hairbrush as a microphone (of course)...this was a priceless daddy daughter moment!

And Kiva started sitting up in the cart in stores now!!! So fun.
And finally, Brian and I photographed a wedding in Houston on Friday. It was fun for us, and the venue was exceptional! I took a photo of the couple in one of the most amazingly romantic, we got to know the wedding coordinator throughout the night and we had her take a photo of us in the same spot with my camera (not my elph)...isn't it fun. We will have this printed over our bed soon!
and the dessert?...almond M&M and a strawberry (repeat over and over) should try it!


  1. Priceless pics...can't wait to see you all in the flesh tomorrow! Love & hugs!

  2. oh wow that pic is so dreamy! so, i have to ask, where was the wedding venue? i think i told you coy is engaged and we are busy trying to help propose ideas for them. let me know.

  3. I can't get over how much Jada is looking like you!! They both look so great and are just beautiful! I am planning on bringing the boys to Bluebell in about 4 weeks and would love to see you guys if it works out for your schedule! xoxo, Kellye
