Lilli Turns 3

My baby is no more a baby. Three years old just seems so definitive. Like, I absolutely cannot consider her a BABY anymore. Lilli's turning three coupled with Conner turning 5 this year, wow, my heart is just breaking.

This last year was kind of a blur, with Adam being gone for half of it with the military.

For Lilli's birthday last year, we celebrated with a tea-party birthday and she jumped in with both feet.
A success

Just a few days later we sent to the pumpkin farm to pick pumpkins with Dad before he had to leave, since we were there so early in the year, they still had apples!

We spent Grandparent's Day with my Grandma making cookies.

When we carved the pumpkins, Lilli wasn't all that happy with the guts part...
Not happy with the guts.

Yay Halloween!!

When Dad was home for 2 weeks around Christmas, we made sugar cookies!

Happy Birthday my Chicken Noodle, I can't believe you're three! Always remember, you and your brother are two of the things in my life I KNOW I did right, and I will never, ever regret. I love you, Bugg!


  1. Oh wow! She's three already. Such a cutie pie!

  2. Oh my goodness - a true photographer! :) So many people these days call themselves photographers but aren't really. I believe it takes an 'eye' that many do not have - you my friend HAVE IT!

    I enjoyed my visit this morning so very much. May I ask what camera/lens and editing program you use? I'd love to be in on the technical side of your photography - and I hope I can continue to develop the artsy side - they "eye".

    Thanks for putting the Cripes button up. They really are a wonderful family in need.

    Have a beautiful Sunday.
