This month has been a very busy month. With school starting, birthdays, primary program and events at the office oh yeah and soccer we have just been running, running, running. Last September was a different story and we are glad that we are all healthy and happy this year. We took some time on Sept. 7 to remember our Angel Baby Boston. For those who may not know (new fans on facebook) we were expecting a baby boy in Feb. of 2012 but he came to us way toooo early in Sept. of last year. If you are interested you can read about it here. So for his birthday we got some baby blue balloons and we took some time to write a note to our little baby brother. It was interesting to see what the girls wrote and how long they took writing down just the right words. It was very sweet. We then proceded to the back yard where we counted to three and released our balloons with our little notes on them. It was a great way to honor and reflect I won't say remembe because he is in no way forgotten and is a daily topic of converstaion in our house. We are greatful for the trial we had last year and the great blessings and lessons recieved.
Here is the info I promised on the family mini sessions.... I know it is early to think of Christmas Cards but Fall pictures make the best Christmas Cards and why not get a jump start on them and get them done. Please email me if you would like to book session or have questions all the info is below. I am so excited to get to designing this years cards. Fell in love with the design on this tonight....my brother nd his family are so cute.
I also do customised cards and invites. Here is a new one for this weeks festivities. Cairo is turning 5 and although she would love to have a glamorous all grily makeup party.....girlfriends are few in numbers now that school is back in and some of her friends went to Kindergarten. So we opted for a Jake and the neverland Pirate Party so we cold invte some of our guy friends and have a pirate blast. I wanted her to wear her pirate eye patch but she wasnt going to so we opted for an inocet pic and put her on Izzy's body. I tink they turned out great we will see how they print. I am just going to print on cardstock and burn the edges to make it a real treasure map. So fun.
