Pancakes with the Littles

When Alex, Eli and Kali woke up this morning Aunt Lexi cooked pancakes for them. They love breakfast and they adore their Aunt, she’s so good with them. Hope all of you have a happy day, I know ours will be fabulous because we got to wake up to these smiling faces this morning! (The photos of Eli, Alex and Kali below.)

Kali’s Kindergarten Graduation

Last night Kali’s kindergarten celebration took place at St. Edward’s Church right behind her school. Kali is the one with the big burgandy bow right in the middle of the photo. She and her class sang some beautiful songs for the ceremony.


I arrived a little bit late and didn’t capture a very special event at the graduation because I was shooting a family portrait, so I had Kali pose outside in front of church with her special award. The spirit award is given to one child per class who exemplifies the spirit of St. Katherine Drexel, the patron saint and founder of her school. Kali received this award for her classroom. We’re so very proud of her for this wonderful acknowledgement, it is indeed very special.

Eli and Pop Play Ball!

The day before Easter Pop and I bought the twins a little batting machine, the boys love it, I shot a few photos of the boys practicing with Pop and created a layout with one of Pop and Eli. I used Shabby Miss Jenn’s “Batter Up” kit, which was just perfect for my photos! Check out her newest kits HERE!

Ice Cream Party Games

There were a few games at the party for Kali on Saturday. The kids loved popping balloons, having races with cherries in their spoons, blowing bubbles and breaking the pinata. Here are some photos captured at the party by me and my sister Robin at the party. (Thanks Aunt Robin for always helping out! We love you!)
