Hannah is 6!

My last baby is six years old today!

She lives strawberries and yogurt, Frozen 2, and foxes and sloths. Her best friend from school is Elizabeth, and she loves to play in the snow (winter) and at the park in the summer.

Her favorite song is “Into The Unknown” from Frozen 2 (the Brendon Urie version).

She loves me because I give her food that she likes and I can make a good cake. She loves her sisters because they play together.

When she grows up, she wants to be a mom and a veterinarian.

Happy birthday, Hannah!

A Chilly Walk

I had my niece and nephew over the weekend, and we were all going a little nuts being stuck inside. So we braved the cold and wind and went for a short walk.

No one was really taking me seriously. But I don’t blame them. It was COLD.

But we survived and everyone was in a much better mood when we got home. We won’t be able to get outside like this for much longer so we enjoy every minute!

Sometimes They Cooperate…

…and sometimes they don’t.

I had my niece and nephew over this weekend for a sleepover. The kids had lots of fun making cards for Papa (my dad had open heart surgery on Friday and is currently doing as well as can be expected.)

There was the usual antics when Teegan and Leila come over – playdoh and slime everywhere, someone sits in green beans (and then steps on them), they stay up way too late giggling. But these are the memories they will remember and I’m glad they have each other, even if they don’t see each other very often.

Walk in the Backyard

We took a walk tonight in between rain showers. Avery and Hannah took turns taking photos with my phone. (Lauren was back on the patio playing with ponies. She didn’t want to get her feet wet by walking in the grass.)

Avery was showing Hannah some of the photos that were taken.

Avery is taking a photo of Hannah.

Hannah is posing for Avery. All in all, they didn’t do too bad. They still have a lot to learn about posing, composition, exposure and focus, but it took me years to get to where I am, and I’m still learning!

I found some presets in a folder on my old hard drive so I thought I would try them out again. I think I like them! #CascadePresets
