Twelve...


































TWELVE... Gulp...
I like twelve. Isabelle has been 12 for about 3 months or so now and I love it! Twelve is different than eleven... twelve is emotional. Twelve is happy and sad and happy three seconds later. Twelve is wanting to be with friends and wanting to be with your little sister and then wanting to be with friends. Twelve is an age you remember so you want to write it good. Twelve is thinking you're beautiful but wanting just a dab of concealer and maybe some lip gloss... or maybe just some really fun shorts! Twelve is holding your hand for just a little longer when you are on a walk... and letting go when you get close to someone you know. Twelve is looking at you with smiling eyes because they get it now... they really get it. Twelve is wanting to play with dolls but needing to text a friend but really wanting some ice cream. Twelve is barefeet and dirty knees and a little perfume. Twelve is Twelve. Happy.

Valentine's Day FuN!












I just can't help myself... whenever there is a holiday I have to go all out! Nothing crazy just little details that I know our kids LOVE!... and to me, that's enough! Traditions... you just have to!

Mermaids Galore!!!
















Holy Mermaids!!! This was such a fun party! One of Cecilia's BFF's had a mermaid party this spring and OH MY GOSH am I ever glad I brought along my camera! Such a treat! So many fun details! The girls all played and made those little girl memories that will last forever! I always wonder if while those sweet times are happening if they ever really know that they will be those moments that take them back when they themselves are 38!...? or will I just have to remind them...
