Our Month In 9 Squares – February 2019

Dear February 2019,

You were one for the books! We made some of our most cherished memories this month and it was everything we had hoped for and more! We took our first Disneyland family vacation and it was truly a magical trip! Our girls will never forget all of the fun! It was also the best weather ever in AZ, so all I can say is thank you God for the rain and chilly weather. And we can’t forget Valentine’s Day, the holiday I never knew I loved until having daughters! We have way too much fun celebrating all things love in this family! February, although you are a short month, you rocked!

March, we have more fun planned and we are looking forward to it all!

Our Month In 9 Squares – January 2019

Dear January 2019,

Oh hey January! 👋 We kicked you off with a focus on laying low and 2019 goal planning. We spent most of our free time this month playing outside, riding bikes and we started family nights filled with board games and lots of UNO.
Soccer Saturday has started again so we are back to the soccer field and we are all loving it! Payton even scored her first goal ever! 👏 Kensie has two teeth and she is growing up too fast – slow down little love! I was able to sneak away for a family trip in Las Vegas, while Travis held down the fort. I was able to meet up with my little bro, first time seeing him in two years and we did it right, Vegas style!
February is going to be a great month, so for now… ✌January!

Our Month In 9 Squares – December 2018

Dear December 2018,

You were the best!!! Christmas time is always the best time, but now that we are a family of 5… Everything was better than ever!  We filled the month with family holiday functions and made sure the girls knew the real reason for the season – Jesus – Love came down! From live nativities to Santa, we did it all and made so many wonderful memories along the way. The best part of the month had to be our first Christmas Vacation and it was one we will never forget. Getting away to cold weather and indulging in Christmas spirit made this Christmas season our best yet! And it was so much fun watching Kensie enjoy her first Christmas! Thank you December 2018 for a month we adored.

We are so excited for 2019 and a new January of family-fun!

2018 Christmas Cards | With Shutterfly

Shutterfly outdid themselves this year with their amazing 2018 Christmas cards selection.

As you know, we are big Shutterfly fans in this house, and once again I was pleasantly surprised with their adorable cards.  Now that we are a family of five, I found that I gravitated towards the card options with more than 4 photo slots, so that I could highlight each of the girls.

This year I found that they really up-ed their game on the total card package.  Not only are their card options fabulous, but their envelope liners and pre-addressed envelopes are so creative and colorful!  I am all about the feeling you get when you pick-up a card out of your mailbox; the happy mail experience starts with the envelope! 2018 Christmas Cards Season is here!

Our Month In 9 Squares – November 2018

Dear November 2018,

What a great month!

You were a month filled with gratefulness, thankfulness, and the reminder of kindness.  November, we filled you up with great moments and treasured times… Mainly Kensie’s first cross-country adventure and our hubby/wife trip to Washington D.C.  DC was beyond words – FABULOUS! We also celebrated daddy’s birthday, Thanksgiving, our first girl-only STAYcation slumber party and Christmas came early this year with decorating the house and setting up the tree.

November you were good to us, but we are so excited for Christmas and the holiday month of December! Bring on Jesus’ BIRTHDAY!!!

Dear October 2018,

You are always a month filled with PUMPKIN everything! This month we enjoyed the pumpkin patch, plenty of pumpkin spice, carving pumpkins, lots of candy corn, creative costumes, a fall festival and Kensie’s 1st Halloween!
Thank goodness the temperature has cooled down, it actually felt like fall for a few days this month with the added bonus of rain.
Soccer season has also kicked-in which is always a favorite around here, so we are excited for more sports-filled Saturdays.

But of course, November we are grateful for your arrival… Bring on the feast!

Halloween Costumes 2018

Yet again, this year I decided to let the girls pick costumes that resemble their personalities.  My girls are the epitome of opposites, one is a perfectionist that likes pretty and sparkly things and the other likes to be goofy and silly most of the time.  So their costume choices this year did not come as a surprise to me.

Candy Corn Photo Shoot | Scrumptiously Adorable

When my oldest daughter, Paisley, was 4 months old, I got this crazy idea to take photos of her in a tub of candy corn.  Don’t ask, I have no idea!… But to this day, those photos definitely have a “sweet” spot in my heart.  So of course, I had to reenact this photo-shoot with Payton, when she was 7 months old and yet again for Kensie who is now 6 months old.  Each photo shoot has it’s own personalized touch, and it is so much fun to see their “sweet” personalities shine through.

One thing I learned through the years of doing this photo shoot is that the older the baby, the “sweeter” their sweet tooth!  At 7 months old, Payton already had a desire for all things yummy and we had a heck of a time keeping the candy out of her mouth, where Paisley and Kensie just thought they were surrounded by toys to play with.

Without further ado, enjoy these SCRUMPTIOUSLY ADORABLE photos! Continue Reading
