State Championship Football

We love football. I love football. My dad has been going to Ware County football games for over 10 years and has had the same reserved seats for all that time. It is very seldom that he misses a game. In fact the most he has missed recently have been because he was been going to the Georgia Tech games with me, Harmon and the girls. Well this year Ware County made it to the state championship game. of course we made the trip and went to the game. We had tons of fun going and cheering, sadly we lost. By a lot.

Poor Harmon had to work. And a special thanks to Harmons parents for watching the girls so that I could enjoy the game without worry of the girls!

Prepping for Christmas

I have wanted and prayed for babies for a very long time. During our years of trying and waiting, I was dreaming. Dreaming of all the things I wanted for my children. The traditions that we would start, the traditions that we would pass on to our children. The whole month we cuddled and spent time as a family.

Harmon and I, dressed the girls up and took them to visit Santa Clause. We did not get the obligatory crying that babies typically give. So we got adorable photos that I love! And will cherish forever! I love photos:)

Overall I would consider it a very successful trip to meet Santa. Afterwards we went to the mall to do some Christmas shopping. Now if only I could get everything wrapped....

Christmas lights

For Christmas I received a new camera. I have been reading a lot and doing some experimenting with said new camera and am very much looking forward to learning more! I am using my, currently very empty play room as a location to set up little shoots...

I am attempting to achieve a style of photograph that I love, bokeh.

I still have some learning to do!

Christmas Photos

We recently had our Christmas photos done by What the Bell Photography. They came out amazing and I look forward to sharing more. But until my Christmas cards go out you will have to be happy with some behind the scenes shots~ The girls were five months old when they were taken, we are considering them our 6 month photos. And don't plan on having more photos taken until their first birthday! 


O' Christmas Tree

I came home after work a couple days after putting up the tree and it was the only light on in the house and I was struck by how beautiful it looked.

Georgia/ Georgia Tech Football

For the Georgia / Georgia Tech football game we had the Harmon, Harmons dad (Harmon), Mr Mike, Mrs Sue, my dad, Grandma Grace and of course me!!! This post will mostly consist of photos:) All taken with my pretty new camera!!!

Hannah loves to play Superman....

Whoops DaVinci likes to take advantage of the Superman position!

DaVinci was less then impressed once we made him stop kissing the baby!

Someone else decided to sleep through most of the game. 

Once she did wake up, she was less then pleased.

But some time with Grandma Sue made everything ok!

Once everyone was happy it was time to play on the floor!!!

Look at that baby lifting her head!!!

Black Friday

My amazing sister Allison spent two hours standing in line with me for two hours in the cold at Best Buy. All in an effort for me to buy my Christmas gift... And we were successful!!!!

I got a Cannon T3i bundle with the camera, extra lens, camera bag, and a 16gig memory card. I am one happy lady and can't wait to show off pictures with it!!! I took a ton of everyone watching the UGA GT game but haven't had the time to go through them... theres only 300+....

Five Months

I can hardly believe my little itty bitty babies are five months already!!! They are no longer itty bitty babies. But big! And they have such personalities. They turned five months on Thanksgiving with the whole family here, so it was a busy day! I was not able to get Hannahs weight.

I love this because she is looking up at the bear like what the heck is this thing!

I took Sarah Grace to the doctor on Monday so I know that she weighed in at 12lbs 4oz.

She's looking at that bear like what the hell is this, is it going to attack, get it away!!!

Still a little unsure about this bear...

And look at this can you believe it she is getting so strong!!! We have had her sleeping on her stomach, and since then we have seen such huge improvements!!!

Of course I had to take some of them together.

I just love little baby legwarmers, and have two dozen pairs.... which really isn't that many when you think thats only 12 different pairs....

And I love that when you lay them beside each other they look for each other, at each other, and since they are reaching and grabbing for things, they tend to hold hands:)

Hannah & Sarah Grace: The Beginning

I love photos and albums. For the girls first Christmas I created these photo books for them that tell the story of their birth and the time we spent in the hospital. Every year on their birthday they will be given books for the previous year. I cried writing this book, but am very pleased with the outcome and can't wait for them to come in the mail!!!

I've noticed lately that I don't say as much about Hannah so this post is devoted to her! Hannah when she was a little bit younger was known as Handza because she always always always had her hands in her face. Above her head all over the place. At night we would swaddle her and if she got her hands out she would wake up screaming, but she would try so hard to get those hands free!!!


She has for the most part grown out of this habit. Although we still swaddle her every night and she still wakes up screaming when she finally gets those hands free! We invested in something called a miracle blanket and I have to say it has been a miracle for us! Whats sad is even now at 4.5 months we still use it and she is growing out of it. I have no idea what we are going to do when it no longer fits. 

Hannah is my little firecracker. Where Sarah Grace is soft and gentle and quite Hannah makes up for it. She is loud and proud!!! And she will let you know what she wants and when. 

Her first cry and she hasn't stopped yet! 

This girl is growing up way to fast. She is such a busy body she always needs to be upright and looking around she doesn't want to miss anything! 

It was just a few days ago that my little sunshine rolled over for the first time. And yes I said she's my little sunshine because yes even though she can cry she is normally a very happy baby.

I love her expressions, this one just previously she had been looking at the bunny and she turned and looked at me and was like what the heck is that?

Ok I like the bunny!

And yes she is balancing herself, in fact moments after this photo I took this photo I let go, and she was able to hold herself up. Only for a few moments, but before I know it she'll be up and running. She really is such a  good baby.
