If ever a set of pictures made me happy...

oh man 
this outfit cracks me up.

You know, I was never the girl to dream about my wedding.(Although I wish I had been, then maybe wedding planning would have been so much easier.)  But no I never did. I did however, often think of my future children. I can remember sitting on my steps by the pasture (sometime in highschool) and trying so so hard to see their faces. What they would like. Who they were. I wondered if they were watching me, waiting for their turn here on earth. It helped me try and be a better person. I didn't want them to change thier minds and want to go to someone else! 
(I have no idea if that's how it works, but I think sometimes it does.) 
I can't look at these 3 sets of eyes staring at me without choking up.
Oh my heart.
These are the faces I was trying so hard to imagine.

Well at least these are most of the faces.
 I think another girl for sure and maybe another boy...
But they will have to wait. 
A good loong while.
Till we are sane enough to love another face.

 My favorite dress Naomi has owned thus far. 
It's now packed up...too small.

pillsbury comes to mind.
Sure sign, that the photo shoot is OVER.
Thank you Cache(And Uncle Nick) for inspiring this whole dang thang!

My heart and stomach are doing this weird shaking thing because these pictures are sooooo beautiful! That sounds weird writing it, but I don't know how to explain it...
I admire your documenting skills. You have just the right touch at capturing the special moments of your life.
That's so cool and funny that Cache wanted to dress Gage like Nick :)

P.S. Orchid is still alive and on my kitchen table. I dont keep many plant things alive so it must be a sign that our friendship is still alive and growing. It reminds me of you every time I look at it ;) xoxo

Amie I love these!! They bring back such memories. Sailor outfits were in style when my oldest was little and sometimes I get teased about them but they are so cute!!

These photo's are beautiful and have a real vintage quality to them. It also doesn't hurt that your kids are so stinkin' cute!
