apple orchard.

It’s November, so it’s technically still fall right? I’ve had these photos saved but never hit publish with this post! Definitely wanted to post these before I start posting Christmasy photos :) We took these in the early Fall, when we went to the apple orchard and pumpkin patch. We picked sooo many apples and pumpkins, we couldn’t bring them all home- ha ha. The kids are all at such a fun age, and it is so much fun taking them to do things like this!

…the sweetest!!

….until next year ;)


audra jamison.

The newest member of our family, Audra Jamison, was born November 16th. 8lbs 9oz . Ever since I have had a blog- each baby we’ve brought home has had their own little post on here….so Audra is no exception :) Audra’s birth was the easiest and quickest of the four and I’m so thankful for that! The nurses and my doctor were wonderful, and everything seemed more peaceful than my previous labors.

So far, Audra has been pretty laid back (she is a newborn who sleeps all of the time of course!) and she has been given lots of love. All three of the kids are constantly checking on her to make sure she is doing ok. If one sibling is not next to her, another one will be within five minutes….I’m not exaggerating :) Beau is always giving her kisses, Leland helps with diapers, and Reagan always want to give her the “pinky” (binky) ha!

I’m going to post a few newborn photos that I took of her and the meaning of her name soon. We love you so much already miss Audra!


Great Grandma at the lake

She is beautiful and I can see all the other children loving her to pieces. What a precious gift to all of you. Love Great Grandma❤️

sunflower fields.

Sometimes I feel like time is passing so fast, and I can’t catch up! Do you feel this way too? Can’t believe we took these pictures a month ago…can’t believe it’s already October (today Leland turned 7!) Time just needs to slooooow down. Except for this last month of pregnancy, this last month can totally speed up- ha ha! But otherwise, time just needs to not go so fast. I guess that’s why I love photography so much and carry my camera every where I go. To save, document, to save up the memories because they truly do go too quickly. I’m thankful for the memories to capture, whether it be for others or for our own family. These are from last month at a sunflower field about an hour from our house…


very nice pics

reagan’s ice cream birthday!

A couple weekends ago we celebrated Reagan’s third birthday with some family. She loved having a little party and loved her cake and everything! Most of the decorations I already had except for the flowers, banner, and pink burlap. I made the cupcake stand using spray paint, candle holders and plates from the dollar store and this tutorial. So easy! She had such a great time and I still can’t believe she’s already three!



reagan is three!

Reagan turns three today! I can’t believe it… I blinked and now she’s three. These three years have flown by and she has brought so much joy to our family! I want to say she’s a girly girl but truly she is not. She hangs around her brothers all day so she can definitely put them in their place! Ha! She is spunky for sure, but as sweet as can be too. She had a small birthday party last weekend with family and I’m going to post pictures from that this weekend too. (My kids are only little once, so birthday parties and pictures we will do until they say are too old to do so ;) ) We love you, Reagan Brielle!

…lol she didn’t want to smile here ;)



eight years!

Eight years. I can’t believe it has been 8 years since we were married! It seems like those years have gone by in the blink of an eye. This year has been really refreshing (if that’s a good word to use) for us and our family and I am excited to see what our eighth year of marriage has in store. I have a feeling this year will be a little crazy busy, especially adding another little one to the family. But we are excited! Marriage teaches you (or at least me, many lessons)… shapes you…and I really think it makes you a better person. So thankful for Jay- his patience, his integrity, and keeping tabs on me when I shop a little too much ;)  Grateful for his friendship and love. Here are to many more years together!

P.S. We are so anxious to meet our new addition to the family here soon! Eeek!
