TOMS DIY Envelopes

I have posted a DIY tutorial for making envelopes several months ago. I used our TOMS catalog for these. I think they are my favorite. I do love TOMS.

The Davis Family: Bossier City, LA

These boys are so fun and energetic. Each time I see them, I can't believe how much they have grown. Their mom did an awesome job scouting out some sites since I don't live in the area anymore (Great job Jeni!). Here are a few of my favorites from their session.

 So silly! K is shakin' it! lol!

 I did this to my mother when I was growing up. Sometimes pictures is just not on the agenda for the day. In a couple of months, I'm sure I will be payed back for all the times I put my mother through my photo day tantrums. Baby Lee, please have mercy!

 Showing off his muscles and his swagger walk. He definitely said "Peace" to me to let me know he was done with pictures.  lol!

Have a blessed Wednesday!

A Snowstorm Detour

Last week, my husband and I made a cross country car. The greatest thing about traveling for several days in cramped quarters was that I had the pleasure of spending a lot of time with my best friend. The worse thing was the weather. We were 20 minutes from our first stop to stay the night and the interstate was closed. CLOSED?! What? It was closed due to the weather. My husband and I lived in North Dakota for several winters and the weather conditions in Arizona (where we were) were nothing close to what we lived in. So, after several minutes of waiting and asking whether we should stay or make a detour, we finally decided to make a detour. We definitely went out of the way, but we didn't lose a day of traveling. Here's what we woke up to the very next day at our hotel.
 We had plenty of practice doing this in North Dakota. I think it's a skill you never forget.
P.S.- If you are ever in Prescott, AZ. The Hampton Inn is a great place to stay. The lady at the front desk was so helpful...even after she was snowed in with the rest of us. She put the guests before herself.
Have a blessed Tuesday!

Baby Care Package

My parents sent me the sweetest care package a couple of weeks ago... filled with baby clothes, scrapbooking stickers, cookies, and CORNMEAL!!!! Crazy, I know! Self-rising white corn meal doesn't exist in Las Vegas. I was craving cornbread, so my mom went to the grocery store in Louisiana, bought cornmeal, and sent it to me in the mail. I made cornbread in my cast iron skillet.... and it was as close as I could get to my momma's cornbread without having her there cooking it for me. DELICIOUS!
Have a blessed Thursday!

A Bird Watching Kind of Day

During Cara's session, her son, E, asked me to bird watch with him. I can't remember ever bird watching with binoculars before. But now, I can officially say I have.  I asked E, "Did you know that a robin is a bird?" His response, "It is?! Mrs. Robyn, you're a bird?!" LOL! Something like that.
He is so sweet and smart!

Have a blessed Wednesday!

Welcome to Vegas

After living in Vegas for a year, I finally made it to the Welcome to Las Vegas sign. But the sad thing is, my husband wasn't with me. Maybe we'll make it down there again soon so we can have a pic together. But for now, here's the sign.
Have a blessed weekend!
