Someone had her first birthday!

My youngest had her first birthday! There are days I can't believe it has been a year since she was born, and there are other days I can't believe it's been only a year. Little Thumper continues to brings us joy and confound us with her stubbornness and dislike of sleep. She loves her sisters, loves to play, but is often quite serious. She's a funny little honey, and our family wouldn't be complete without her. I love her so much! Oh, and she gives THE BEST hugs. Really. She does. They are amazing.

 Here she is on her birthday: photo Thumper12wm_zpsf1720c08.jpg
In other exciting news, my SIL had her second baby! I have a new little niece, and I can't wait to meet her in June! Oh, the months can't pass quickly enough.

We had some excitement on Saturday when Peanut saw a snake in our yard.  Thankfully it was a harmless ribbon snake, and thankfully Peanut saw it before she stepped on it.  Am I the only one who thinks it looks silly resting on a dandelion?  That seems so...unsnake-like.

Counting Blessings

The world is filled with so much tragedy and ugliness. My heart weeps for those affected by the bombs in Boston, and I'm offering up prayers for everyone. I think now is a good time to focus on the beautiful gifts we are given. Thank you, Heavenly Father, for the beautiful spring days that bring bare feet, dresses, and time spent in cherry trees.  photo Cherryblossoms02watermark_zpse97d371e.png

A few more from the engagement session

I can't wait to go to their wedding! I hope they let me take some pre-wedding photos of the bridesmaids and the bride getting ready.  photo Engaged04_zpsda68fcd0.jpg  photo Engaged05_zpsd363a221.jpg  photo Engaged06_zps8e2a1099.jpg
