The Toothfairy left her a dollar!

The best part about losing that tooth......

Our July 24th..

Our ward had an AM breakfast and the kids had a parade where they had decorated bikes, scooters, wagons and themselves!! It was really nice to get up and NOT have to get breakfast... afterwards, Ethan and Daddy went into the shop to build a car, and Callie and I painted our toenails!!

If you are from my ward, and you view these pictures of Hannah, please keep it to yourself... Preston has not seen the dress, or her in it!... general consensus is that he'll peek if he got the chance!!!

Picture perfect bride

I am particularly proud of these, as I had nerves WORSE than the engagements! I told Doug on the way there "I'm not sure about this"... he said "what do you mean"?...


.."You'll do GREAT"

I was hoping something really good happened between where we were and where we were going, because I was about as nervous as I could get, these are someone's BRIDAL pictures, "someone" who's family I adore, and I don't want to mess it up... but something GREAT happened; MAGIC, and you see the results.

Hannah is a beautiful girl, she looked amazing, the setting was charming and my equipement was more than adequate, but I am still very unsure working the camera, in fact I feel as if I can't really do the technical stuff behind the lens, and be creative about what's in front of me quite yet, it's two different dimensions still, and I hope there is a mesh soon, but Doug was more than happy to come along and get me rolling, and have a few ideas of his own, luckily we have always been a somewhat creative and talented team, so as you see, my worries were unfounded, and I managed to play the part, once again, as a "photographer"

..More to follow. Stay tuned....

** We ran smack into Aunti A-shell while we were there, she followed along and it was SO very nice to see her!

A doll and a dress...

Grammie helping Callie put her dress on....


Waiting for her to put on afterwards..

Her new black shoes

Eight years ago, my Mother made Callie's blessing dress, it was only fitting that she would produce the sweetest little pink dress for her Baptism, it has little pink flowers on a very pale pink fabric, then as I was uploading these pictures, my mind wandered to the flowers that I picked for her blessing dress, and I was compelled to go pull the dress out and see the resemblence, as I was digging for THAT, I came across the little layette set that Grandmommy bought her on the day she was born, Cody and Spencer in tow to pick out something special for their new sister to wear home, very pale pink with little pink roses.....

This little girl has had some pretty special clothing in her eight years, and each of them has been at the offering of a GRAND-mother who loved her; what a lucky little lady!

All three dresses

Her blessing dress

The layette that she got on the day she was born

Her Baptism dress

It was fun to pull these dresses out and put them together, of course Callie wanted to know why I was getting "all this stuff out" and then she had a great time showing it to her BFF Rachel, I showed her the layette, still in the box it was given to me in, in the hospital; told her about her brother's and Grandmommy going to the store right after she was born to get it, and that I was saving them all, she said "because we pass it down"?... exactly. One day I will give it to you for your daughter.. now that's a legacy.
