father's day gift bags: better late than never?

so... i finally got my usb cable back and i uploaded about a months worth of projects to post on the blog. some are outdated but i'm posting them anyway!

here are the "hero supply" goodie bags i found here. i made one for
each of the dad's in my life for father's day. there are 5, not including my husband (he got an extra special father's day gift...), so i was pretty busy printing, cutting, and bagging goodies. all the hard work paid off, the dad's loved them!

this is my dad's buff arm. he's a crossfit trainer. my dad could beat up your dad...

my dad and his girls.

i think this idea could also work for a boys birthday party. i may try it since my son is requesting a spiderman party this year. it would make a great snack table!

Family Pictures 2010

if you haven't noticed already, i love my friend Jackie Wonders. i met her when i was engaged to my husband. she was his friend first and i stole her away. now she's my friend. she has been taking pictures of my family since she started being a photographer and we try to get them done every year, so we have ALOT of her work on our walls. here is the most recent family picture. to view the entire post click here. (scroll down, we're the second family.)

our anniversary and the kids birthday's are all back to back so we try to get pictures taken around the same time each year.

this is 2009. i'm obsessed with documenting the growth of our children and family.

this is 2008. little a's newborn session.

this is me pregnant with big A in 2006. jackie was just starting out when we did these. i love them so much and wish i would have had some done when i was pregnant with little a. there's such a big gap here because we lived in orange county for two years. we did have family pictures taken with another good friend, Karey Michelle. maybe someday i will put them all up in order.

all at once it seems like each of these were just yesterday. thank you jackie, for documenting my family. my walls are all the more beautiful with your work on them.

Heather & Aaron's Engagement Session on Wedding Chicks

sorry for all the light blogging lately, i am without my usb cable to upload pictures of all the crafts i've been working on lately to my computer. there have been so many fun things going on and i can't wait to share them with you! for now, i will share one of the most exciting!

one of my dearest friend's recent engagement session (which was photographed by another special friend, Jackie Wonders) was featured on Wedding Chicks blog a few weeks ago. i had the pleasure of doing a couple paper projects for the shoot and Jackie snagged some great photos of those too! here's the link.
