Mama's Don't let your babies grow up to be Cowboys...

don't let 'm play guitars and drive them ol trucks.. make em be doctors and lawyers and such.....

this one is graduating Kindergarten tomorrow. WOW! It is incredible how much faster life spins the more life you live.

Sweet Michael...
you are going to be a great rooster tomorrow. Its a big role, but I know you got it covered!
You make us proud everyday. Your laugh, your jokes, your dances.... you are gifted with comedy for sure! I know God has great things in store for you sweetie. He has given you artistic talent, a super bright mind, and great looks... THOSE three will take you as far as you want to go!

So tomorrow. I will cry. You will not. But that is okay. Mamas are supposed to cry at kindergarten graduation. It is just one of those things we do.

You keep doing your thing. Daddy and I... we got your back! We will support you forever and always. You have changed a little since this picture when you were three... but one thing that will NEVER change......

you are my boy.
and i love you.

Pajama Party at the DQ

After a flurry of weekend portraits... I picked up my freshly bathed pajama wearing kids from my moms and headed back across the river to our home. With our family, there really is no beginning or ending of the work week. We just go day to day and do the best we can. But last night.. I was weary and tired. And seeing those sweet kids in my "kid mirror" in my car... I just wanted to bottle them up .. pjs and all and just stop time.

So I whipped into Dairy Queen and much to their shock and disbelief.. steered them to the counter where we all ordered the biggest, chocolatest, most sprinkles ever... batch of cones and treats.

and we had a Pajama Ice Cream Party.

A party I will treasure forever.

I even grabbed my camera... so I could share this with them years from now...
that even on days when you are not feeling like Mom of the Year..
even on those days you can embrace what you have with all that you got.
and we did.
and that was the BEST TASTING ICE CREAM I have EVER tasted!

sidenote... five year old said this morning... "Mama... I had fun getting ice cream last night.. but next time do I have to go in my pajamas? "

I have always loved the tile pendant. It is classic and fun, but simple and clean. It is dressy but casual, and it is yours.... there is a neat feeling walking around with your kids around your neck. You will get asked to talk about them by everyone who sees your pendant.It is incredible!
So I have decided to run TWO specials.

1. Until May 31st. Any session booked for September will receive a free pendant as part of the session fee.

Any past client or current client may order a pendant for only $33.00. This sale will end June 1.

Happy Jewelry shopping!

What you are in my eyes....

Just in case these three can't read my mind.. I decided to create these for the bedroom doors. Affirmation of some of the things they ROCK at...
the things that make them different and wonderful and PERFECT in our family....
I realized that although I HOPE I tell them these things out loud everyday...
well they may not be telling themselves this everyday.
And in my opinion.... if you BELIEVE with your heart you are capable and able... well then you are.
And if I raise three CAPABLE and ABLE kids...that BELIEVE they can do ANYTHING-
then I have succeeded.

BIG thanks to Kelly Cathey for these sweet images. She helped me capture my family last fall.

Welcome to the World Miss Miller!

Benton and his sister Peyton came by this week. What fabulous children Misty!

Sweet baby boy...

Congratulations Krista and Mark!

Celebrate the berries....

That is what is so great about kids.... they celebrate the little things in their day. Like finding red berries in a field.
Like painting your toes pink, green, and purple... (in that order, then repeat)
the celebrate each minute of being four and being two....
Meet the Morway Kids...
