My Bella Yvette

So, it’s true what they say. By the time #5 comes, there is less and less time for pictures and documenting. Poor kid. 😉 But God is good! I had been whining to Him that I couldn’t find just 10 minutes to capture her adorable stage of smiles and stares, of careful observation while she… Continue Reading

A Frozen Halloween

Well, she did it again! Our creative, passionate, spicy one as the ring leader of all her siblings came up with the idea and as a mom who loves a good theme, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to mix bargain with creativity. The 1st chance we got, we headed to our favorite thrift store and… Continue Reading

Memorial Day 2014

“Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom” 2 Corinthians 3:17 We spent Memorial Day at home enjoying the freedom that so many died for. May we never take it for granted that it is because of their fight that we are here May we see… Continue Reading

On Being a Momma
