i am officially crazy...

ok, so i say i'm crazy because
a. i have painted each of these rooms 4 times!!! we have lived in this house for 6 1/2 years and now each kid has been in each room.
b. i have NO time to be painting because this is such busy time of year for me with photography. anyone else need their family photo?
c. sabe says i'm crazy
i did isabella's room pinks and browns. the ceiling was already brown from jaxon's room, so i saved some time and kept it that way. izzy is very proud to have her own room and it makes it much easier when i wake the older kids up for school so early in the morning. she can keep sleeping! isabella loves to sit in her chair and read books and most of with her kitchen. LOVES it.

olivia really wanted her own room and a more "grown-up" room, so we decided to paint it aqua and add black & white accents. she loves it! her favorite part is her desk with the great cubby and drawers for all of her crafts, art, and beads.

jaxon's 8th bday party

the birthday boy! we had jaxon's party at the skate park in leesburg. it was cold, but the kids all skated and warmed up fast. they had a great time. i can't believe jaxon is 8 years old. it just goes by so quickly. jaxon is just the best kid. he has always been so easy-going, so sweet, and so dang cute! i think you can tell by all these pics he might just have to go pro one day. :)

jax and his cousin, Zach

olivia and her stylish self---on rollerblades!

What a privilege it is for me to be able to photograph my sister's children and families. It is a wonderful gift I can give to them.

We had such a great time last night trick-or-treating in Waterford. Imagine a 300-year old village decorated like Sleepy Hollow. It was great to meet up with friends and see all the fantastic costumes. The kids has a blast and it was hilarious to see how Isaebella know exactly how to hold out that bag and wait for a big handful of candy! Here are a few pics....
