Today I plan to melt your hearts

Yesterday was Tia’s first day of preschool so it was only natural that I pull out my trusty magic camera and take 697 pictures before she left.

The results were glorious.  She was cute, naturally.  She can’t help but be cute.  And Sloan was ever the charmer.

“Mom, you can take two pictures of me and that’s it.  I don’t want any more.”

Right.  I took a couple more than two.  Don’t tell…

It is the shots of Landon, however, that will leave you with a toothache.  This is due in part to the fact that his hair was so spectcular when he woke up that I had to wet it down and slick it to the side.  Chubby cheeked cherub with slicked back hair?


Combine that with a pair of pants that I found at a little shop in Orlando this summer – pants with suspenders – and you have a recipe for pure love.  It also makes for some great pictures.   So I present you my children.  You’re welcome.











And, of course, the first day of school wouldn’t be the first day of school without a good old fashioned tree climb.  In a dress…






And one more of Landon, because sweet mercy!  That face is amazing.  Don’t you just want to eat him up?



  1. these are so sweet! miss you guys!

  2. Very cute, I still can’t believe how Landon has changed from that cute little baby face to a big boy face just in a matter of a few months. He is going to favor Tia more than Sloan I think, so does that mean that he looks more like you? You two, Lee one! 🙂

  3. YUMMINESS indeed!! The pic of all three of them together had me laughing! Sloan looks like rico swave`, Tia, plain cuteness, and Bubba looks precious with a little bit of Dennis the Mennis in his look!

  4. Heart is mealting

  5. What can I say. aaaaaaawwwwwww

  6. Laying allegiances aside to my own family, you may quiet possibly have the most photogenic children on the planet–certainly the most photogenic tow-heads on the planet…not to mention the fact that you have a nice eye for capturing a moment…and of course, doesn’t hurt that you acquired a sweet little DSLR…all that to say, good stuff!

  7. Just ADORABLE!!!!

    The Bubba pics made me giggle out loud!! 🙂 I miss those silly (and ADORABLE) kiddos!

  9. I LOVE them! They are amazing, sweet, cute. Pure love! I’m in love with Tia’s dress in Ukrainian national colours – yellow and blue.

  10. I’m glad you like it, Sveta. It will be yours in about a year. 🙂

  11. Ah, can’t wait! It will a super outfit for Independence Day! Love you…
