Interrupting Cow

Birthdays are my favorite time to do special styled shoots for my girls.  But I fully admit that year 6 snuck up on me.  Maybe it was all the who-ra-ra that surrounds school this time of year (sure, let’s go with that).  So while I still plan to execute a personality portrait shoot sometime in the near future, I couldn’t let this one’s birthday pass by without capturing a few snaps.  We danced, we sang, we picked a few flowers, and we told lots of knock-knock jokes.  Her favorite: Interrupting Cow.  It goes like this:

Knock, knock

Whose There

Interrupting Cow

Interrupting Cow WMOOOOOOOO

Get it?  She thinks she’s the funniest in all the land…

Cotton Candy on Demand

Cotton candy on demand?!!  Yes, please!  Where do I sign up?

Springtime for our family is birthday central.  And for my niece’s birthday she got her very own cotton candy machine.  So, of course, I had my brother bring it over for a trial run.  I mean, for quality control reasons, obviously.  😉

The kids were absolutely fascinated by it…who am I kidding, I even wanted to know how this magic machine worked!  One of the best parts…the machine is even pink!!

True love captured.

I think the little one enjoyed it the most.  She scarfed down her purple heavenly ball of fluff in about 3 seconds flat…she gets that from her mommy. 🙂

Now off to buy my own magic making machine.

 

Bluebonnet Tradition

Hi,  I’m Libby!  Welcome to this little blog of mine.  I absolutely love documenting the days of my blue eyed babes with the help of my camera lens.  As a first blog post, I thought that it would be appropriate to post our annual bluebonnet photos.  After all, nothing says Texas like a field of bluebonnets, and we’re Texans.

Every year, it’s always a guess as to where the bluebonnets will pop up.  I mean, they are guaranteed to be thick along the sides of the highways, but that isn’t a very safe nor picturesque spot for photos.  And then there are the ever-elusive private properties that you don’t dare step foot on for fear of being shot…because Texas. Ha!

This year, my dad found us the perfect spot not far behind his house.  There were several patches, so it allowed us to chase the light, skip, have a dance party, and capture plenty of pretty pictures.

My little one was so excited to give her big sister the “puupil” flower that she picked.  An entire field of bluebonnets and the purple verbena excited her most.

We also took some time to show them the “cat’s claw” inside of the bluebonnet flower.  At which point they decided to take it upon themselves to scratch each other with the “cat’s claws.”

And finally, it wouldn’t be a Texas bluebonnet session without cowgirl boots.  How cute are those adorable little boots!?!  We wear them with everything.  If you are interested, here is where you can find their cute boots.
