springtime photo shoot

 A couple of weeks ago, Jamie and I were driving downtown Fayetteville and went down the street behind the Fayetteville library. I saw a really fun graffiti wall back there and knew it would make a fun photo shoot.

So today I took the girls down there to try the spot out and it did not disappoint. Such a colorful bright place to capture some Audrie and Annie energy!

 These two pics just melt my heart. Can't believe Audrie is six years old!

The girls have these pink umbrellas they got in Chinatown last spring and they love them! I really didn't intend on using them, but the girls asked and I'm glad they did. Such a cute prop!

 Look at those sparkly eyes!
 Jamie and I both feel like in the time we were gone from the girls last week- Audrie aged a few years. She's getting so grown up on us!

I am so glad I caught this look on Annie's face. Because this is THE mischievous grin she gives us right before she acts out her evil plans. ;)

I like this next photo of her, too. Looks like Rosie the Riveter to me. :)

And this one might be my favorite (I like the composition of the photo and her smile).

Annie had trouble with this photo shoot because the graffiti wall was close to the road and I had to step in the road a few times to get a pic. Annie DID NOT like that. She is very sensitive and was overly concerned about my safety.  Sweet girl!

Such a fun photo shoot! Maybe Spring is really here and we can all be done with the crazy snow!

Oh my goodness, why are you still checking my blog?! Did you think I was actually going to start blogging again???!

I am sorry for leaving you for so long. I have no good excuses. Just living life and being busy and all that stuff.

So here is a tiny update on the Four of Us...

Still LOVING that we are back in Arkansas. Definitely miss NYC, but appreciating all the things we had taken for granted in our life. 

Like having a fireplace!! :)

Which has been great with all the SNOW we have had this winter.

Audrie turned 6 and had a sweet birthday. Started the day with birthday pancakes..!

Then had a few friends over for a Princess party... and Princess Belle came to her party!!

Little miss Annie is still being her sweet self. Loving preschool- can write her name, say bible verses, and be everyone's best friend. :)

The girls got their ears pierced two weeks ago. Their choice. A big day for them!

Audrie used some of her allowance to buy a basketball and there is a hoop on our street that she can actually sink some shots. Pretty impressive to me.

I played baseball with Annie this afternoon and she can hit it far. Our girls may have some athletic potential beneath all that pink drama. Except every time Annie hit the ball she would yell "YAY BASKETBALL!". um, ok, maybe need to clarify a few sports concepts with her.

Jamie turned 35 this week and says he still doesn't feel old. Despite all his gray hairs... that he says living with three girls has done to him! :)

I bought a HUGE pair of sunglasses in anticipation of our beach spring break trip next week. So excited!!
(This is me attempting to look all fierce in my ridiculous shades..!)

Oh, here is a random pic of the girls watching America's Funniest Videos (they love that show)!

That's as exciting as our life is these days, folks.

Thanks for checking in on us. I will try try try to be better about posting!
