Fall school pictures

Brynlyn's 2011 Fall Kindergarten pictures-age 5

She just looks so grown up to me. Wow, five years old!? When and how did that happen? =)

I am a total hook-line-sink when it comes to school pictures. The picture company can see me coming from a mile away! ha ha

I loved when I was younger and had my pictures taken and my Mom always bought the full package deal so I still have prints of every year of me in school and now I love it when it's picture day for my girls! This year I opted to order the CD instead of prints so I can reprint whatever pictures I want to reprint and not to buy their package deal. Don't get me wrong, it still cost a small fortune, but it's always so worth it in my mind! I always think that they'll only be this age once and so I need to make sure it's captured on film and school pictures are so classic and iconic. I'm sure (and hope) my girls will appreciate it as they grow up. =)

Enjoy your child's picture day!!!

Angel Paige

Hi friends,

Yesterday I attended the funeral memorial service for a dear friend's little 18 month old heart baby daughter Paige who unexpectedly passed away due to complications with her heart defect.

This is the link to her blog where you can learn more about sweet Paige and her courageous family...

It was an amazingly beautiful and heartfelt service yet we are all so sad at the loss of sweet Paige and our hearts go out to Jamie, Keith and their entire family as they begin to heal from this loss.

Paige is such a darling girl who was so full of life and she truly was such a light in this family. Please pray for this sweet family as they struggle to put the pieces back together following the loss of sweet Paige. We will remember her forever and she will always be in our hearts and we are so thankful for her strong example of happiness and courage despite all of the health struggles she fought for the last 18 months.

To the Bloomfield family, we love you guys so much and we will continue to pray for you that Heavenly Father may continue to carry you in His loving arms as your hearts begin to heal from your loss.
