I'm in Love

I had a day off last week so I decided to get some pictures done of the girls. My friend Cathi did them for us, and my girls were being SO UNBELIEVABLY ROTTEN!! We were late getting there, Taylen was being a brat, Ryah was whiny...I pretty much knew we weren't going to get any good shots. Boy was I wrong! Cathi took some BEAUTIFUL pictures...and I just want to put all of them up in my house!! I'm putting tons in this post right now, because I just can't decide... I am so thankful for these beautiful girls in my life, and for these beautiful pictures that I'll always have to look back on. Thanks, Cathi! (Go check out her blog at http://www.bitterphotography.blogspot.com/) Leave me some love about how cute my kids are :)

Wow, these pictures are beautiful! I would NEVER be able to pick my favorite! If I had to pick, it may be the one of Tay kissing Ryah's hand...I mean seriously! What a great day.
Guinnie hopped on my lap when I was looking at them and started licking the screen. He sends his kisses! :)

Thanks Nikki for loving those pictures so much. I loved doing them and am also relieved they didn't turn out crumby. Anytime you are in the mood, we can go do a shoot!! (thanks for linking to my blog, free advertisements are so nice!)

These are gorgeous pictures and of course your girls are just beautiful (and so is their mommy)!! I love them all, especially the ones with you in them. Cathi did a great job - isn't it amazing what photographers can do with cranky kids (now imagine if you had tried to take them - haha!!)

You have no idea who I am. I had a class with Brad at Ricks along time ago. I came across your blog a while back through some other Ricks associates. I look at your blog regularly and am so sorry to hear about your divorce. You seem like an AMAZING woman and you have two BEAUTIFUL daughters. Good luck with everything!!! Cordie

I love them!! It's amazing what Cathi can do with cranky, uncooperative kids! All three of you are beautiful! Congrats on the Masters program also! I am so excited for you! Hope you are having a good week!!

You don't know me. I knew Brad in Elk Grove. I saw your daughters at church on Easter and I linked to your blog awhile ago through someone elses. (i have a bad habit of stalking other people's blogs) I think you are brave and have an incredible testimony. My mom worked my whole life and I respect her so much for what she accomplished in her professional life. I think you are teaching your girls really valuable lessons. I'm so sorry it didn't work out with Brad. I love his family but I can see you are making the very best of a difficult time. My prayers are with you and your girls and I think you will help so many people when you become a counselor. You have a GREAT attitude. Me? I'd be on the couch making love to Ben and Jerry looking at my high school yearbooks and cussing out the world. I wish I could be more like you. All the best!

Nikki, I can see why you are having such a hard time. All those pictures are so cute and you look so BEAUTIFUL! That's not surprising. Your girls are so adorable.

Love Always,

Julia said...

Just happened upon your blog and I love your pictures. Your girls are beautiful. I actually went through a divorce myself with 2 little ones and though it was difficult I pulled through with the Lords help, learned some unique lessons (who knew you could learn something good through something so horrible?) and now am married to a great guy with 10 children! Yup! There is life out there!! Just started blogging and don't know much about it but you can check it out if you want. www.serendipity-julia.blogspot.com. Carry on and be happy! Julia
