Birthday, cupcakes, tulips and… a parrot?

My birthday was on the 10th, and my family loves birthdays. We seriously do. It’s an event, a celebration.. time to be together and have fun.. do things we don’t normally do. My family really went all out for me and it made me feel so loved.
They know how much I adore cupcakes.. so that was the theme. And spring. Tulips.. hyacinths. :)

The name places were real tulips in miniature pots. The “dirt” was chocolate bunches. I probably ate a 1/4 of my dirt before dessert.

We played Yahtzee. I got second! And I never even got a yahtzee. And here’s where the Parrot comes in. See him on my dad’s back? His name is Tarzan.

He’s not very smart. He dances though. Makes you laugh like a fool cuz it looks so funny and cute. He’s a show off.
Like I said, they know my love for cupcakes. Check out the wrapping paper! Its just edible. :)

My cake. My littlest sister made it.. isn’t is beautiful?

All these pictures are iPhone.. as I forgot my camera at home. I’m starting to realize I do that a lot. =/ Anyway.. I had such a wonderful party with my amazing family.. I hope you all are blessed to have a family who loves you like mine does me.
Keep calm and have a cupcake!

Easter eggs, fluffy baby chicks and the Easter bunny.

Our life group had an easter egg hunt and party last week. It was a lot of fun, and the kids loved it. The excitement as they dashed around picking up eggs was enough to make you laugh.. it was so cute.

And the hunt begins!

After all the eggs were picked up and deposited in their darling little baskets, they took turns holding the cutest little chicks.

The guys took a liking to the chicks too. :)

Then the discovering of treasures inside of the eggs; chocolate, candy, bracelets and other little delights.

And last but not least.. the Easter bunny!

I think Baby wanted to eat the bunny…

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!
And then that darkest of nights, and the fiend we call DEATH were powerless.
And my Beloved…

Engagement – Ruth and Mahlon

Where would I even start telling you about this couple? =} I was really suspicious of Mahlon at first. I didn’t know him at all. I had to test him. Ruth is two months and a day older than me but I still feel very protective of her. =] But over the last few months of watching how Mahlon loves her, talks to her, makes her laugh.. all my suspicions faded away.

Instead I stand back in awe of how beautiful it is when God creates love between two people. How he fills in the weaknesses of one with the strengths of the other.. both ways. How much light and life Mahlon has brought into Ruth’s eyes.

And how much she has brought into his. I love watching them together. They make love look incredible.

We had so much fun getting to create their session in such a gorgeous place- first the sunrise in an orange grove and a few hours later in a palm tree jungle!

I love how much fun they have together. How playful they are. How much they laugh.

Aren’t they just adorable together?

So excited to have John able to do some of the photos with me again! I feel like a very crippled team when I’m doing the session alone. The next photo is his.. :)

I love watching them together, being with them together.. but mostly, I just love them. And I’m so thankful to be part of the same family. =}
