As we get ready to celebrate Jesus' birthday, I did take a few days out to just focus on a visit from my sister Carley and my niece Kennedy and really reflect on this time of year. I am incredibly thankful for my family. My husband and children, parents and siblings, grandparents, extended family and military family and friends. My life is made up of all of these and at the center.. Jesus. I am incredibly blessed.
So while I worked a little, spent days photographing baby Kennedy and reveling in her smiling little face and hugged my own munchkins tight as I watched them bake cookies and play games with their Auntie while we were snowed in.. I wasn't really MIA, just behind the scenes.
Here's a little sneak peek of what's in store from Kennedy's photoshoots...

Birthday's in our house are a huge celebration. As each of the kids approach another milestone year, I feel a little cloud of sadness lace the day and an entire rainbow cross their sky as they move forward. We are at a crossroads as Kailyn turns 12. She is unofficially a young lady, but still our first baby. Caught in the world of in between, she is taking each day and making it her own as she makes her mark on life.
I think it has taken me a week to come to the realization that my baby girl is growing up. I can't stop and think that the newborn baby girl I held in my arms is turning into a young lady, without getting teary. I have watched her take her first steps, learn to talk [and not stop], go off to kindergarten, learn to ride a bike and turn into a great big sister. Happy 12th Birthday [a week late in blog time] Kailyn. We love you and you make us so proud.
