Sneak Peek: New Mommy / Daughter Photos

Lennox and I have started a new tradition of getting Mommy / Daughter photos taken each fall. My friend, Diana from has started taking our photos and I love how these came out! I still have to go through all the images but I wanted to give you a little sneak peek!

Last year, our photos were football/Texas Longhorn themed and caught some attention around the web which was pretty exciting!

This year – we went for more traditional photos but found a new location that I just love in our hometown.

Here is a sneak-peek! More coming soon!



I love that I finally get in front of the camera with Lennox instead of the one taking her picture. I just don’t know when Lennox got so big!!

Trick or Treating 2014

Well, another Halloween is in the books! It was another great holiday full of smiles, laughter, joy and – without fail – some tears! Lennox has been a wide range of characters in the past year – starting with a Skunk! Then, Pebbles, a Pink Pirate and Hawkgirl!


This year, Lennox went as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. We are still unsure how she ever learned about Dorothy as she had never seen, read about, etc the Wizard of Oz but she made a perfect Dorothy and now loves the movie!

trick-or-treating-2014As in many past Halloween’s, Lennox’s grandma made her costume shirt and dress and then I found the finishing touches. I think it came out great and she made a pretty awesome Dorothy! Here are some photos from our night of Trick or Treating!

Once we were done trick or treating ourselves, it was time to give out some candy – I think Lennox has just as much fun doing that then going around and getting candy herself! 07trick-or-treating-2014Our neighbors were doing the same and they decided to have a DANCE PARTY! 06trick-or-treating-2014 And, because when Halloween is all done – you have to check out your candy haul before going to bed!!04trick-or-treating-2014 I hope everyone had a fun night of tricks and treats, but mostly treats! Until next year!
