Meet Becca.

This is my sister Becca. She is kind of a nerd, but a HOT nerd.=) My clearest memory of Becca would be doing chores as a child. Every Saturday our family had "big" chores we would be in charge of getting done. Most Saturdays during chore time you could find Becca in the bathroom hiding with a book, reading! =) She has a over a 4.0 in high school, runs and bakes.

I love this outfit because if you notice she is the only sister NOT wearing a dress. We thought jeans because she NEVER does anything to herself. Sure, she will will make herself presentable for school or when she goes out...but when presented with the option to sleep a little longer or do herself up, she will sleep.=) `Most days you will find her in a running shirt and some pj bottoms. I love Becca because she's always up for hanging with the fam.

These were fun to take because we made her put make up on and I did her hair.=) She was a natural in front of the camera!

My sister Becca...

Love you Becca!!

Meet Shanna.

My sister Shanna. She is, well, GORGEOUS!
While trying to decided what she should wear I thought I'd like my sisters to dress by their personalities. Shanna has always taken the time to make sure she is presentable when in public. She will give herself enough time to do her hair and make up. She has style and I LOVE that she isn't afraid to get what she likes even if she finds the knock-off version at wally mart.=) I love this dress because it says sophisticated, while at the same still playful. She defiantly isn't afraid to get dirty.=) I love my sister Shanna while we are very different our style is much the if I can only get back down to her size so I can "barrow" her clothes!

My sister Shanna Sophisticated and gorgeous!

I love you Shanna!!

Liberty of London.

I love this dress and got it when visiting family in Colorado. Bruce said I didn't need it, but I don't agree...I got it out of storage a few days ago and was happy to see it fit Savanah, it's still a little lose on her but I love it so much that I had to get some picture's of her in it. I love the new Liberty collection at Target. I had to talk myself out of getting these supper cute rain boots I feel in love with...but that's another story.=)
So, I took these today, it took me 30 mins from start to finish... I've decided that I need to do it more. When we moved into the MacDougall home we inherited these chairs from my brother in law. Since I sold all my props when we moved, I thought this orange chair would be perfect for pictures. So my muscle man hauled it down the hill. What a great guy! I think he was skeptical as to how they would turn out at first though.

I still can't believe how big Savanah is getting! I have another idea I will put into action in the next couple of days and a senior shoot on it's way this weekend I'm excited for!

Bruce is still looking for a job. I'm hopeful though=) I really have no desire to leave this wonderful weather!

Today I am grateful...

I'm grateful for my amazingly good baby, who was so clam the entire day. She even went down for a nap (which consisted of her just lying awake in her crib for an hour).
She is getting SO chubby I just can't resist kissing her chubby checks all the time.

I'm grateful to be here in Cali with so much family around.

I'm grateful for my husband who tries to do all he can to help...even if he needs a little persuading every so often.=)

I'm grateful to finally be losing that extra baby fat, it feels so good to be running consistently again. Especially to be healthy enough to do so!

I'm grateful for my in-law's who keep me laughing! Savanah and I woke up to find Dad MacDougall and Bruce outside moving the trampoline because Dad decided he needed a spa and and one of those swimming pools (you know they have the jet you swim into to get a workout??? I don't know what they are called..). Only Dad will get a crazy idea in his head and have it in motion the next day no matter the cost or craziness of it.=) I LOVE it.

I'm especially grateful that I'm given the opportunity to take pictures of such beautiful people. A friend of mind from work wanted me to take some pictures of her niece before I left Utah.
Sigh...if only I could find a photographer to take some pics of our family without having to pay an arm and a leg for it!=)

Isn't this little girl just a doll?!=)
