Another Photo Shoot (or 3)

So I am pretty lucky to have a daughter like Zoie. She is a girly-girl who loves to dress up and loves to take pictures! I have trained her well from the time she was little. What would I do without her? I get so happy when I get a cute picture of her. I love this one. It was last Sunday after church. She was especially in a modeling mood and was striking poses on her own. We had her hair in 2 french braids all day Saturday so she could have crimpy hair for church! This was also her new dress that she couldn't wait to wear! I know she is mine so I am bias..but isn't she so cute?
Ok, so photo shoot #2 was yesterday morning. I got the photo shoot bug again. I started with Ava because she was in a really great mood and because it had been too long since I had taken cute pictures of her. So, she was all dressed and I took her to the backyard with her Bumbo. Look how thrilled she was!
Ok, so she was giving me her crazy scowl! But she did warm up and I was able to capture her incredibly chunky arms and thighs!

Ava was most happy (as usual) lying on her back! She was so alert and was really staring at the camera a lot. I love taking pictures! I get so much satisfaction in capturing the moment and personality! Ava is so beautiful and brings so much happiness to everyone she is around! She really lights up when she is happy and smiling!

So, Big Sis saw what we were doing and wanted to get in on the action!

Ok, so I know you are bored by now. But I can't leave out photo shoot #3. I found a way cool vintage hot pink chair on Craigs List yesterday and they were selling it at an estate sale in Sacramento right then! We made it there just in time to watch a lady buy and drive off with my dream chair. Well, they had a gold chair, a wooden chair & a foot rest that were priced too good to turn down! I couldn't wait to see what they would look here it is!

Happy Birthday Princess Zoie!

Well, I finally gave in! Rob has been wanting me to blog for awhile. I have enjoyed hearing the updates Rob has given me from your blogs! I think I was avoiding this because it will be like scrapbooking for me...I will feel bad if I am behind, I will want to blog everything and won't be able to...all the usual scrapbooking guilts! At least this hobby is free!
Zoie's Birthday was March 28th and her party was on April 5th. Her Birthday is old news and was soooo long ago. In fact, Zoie is already telling people "I'm 3 but I'm going to be 4 for my next Birthday". The funny thing is that she tells people this ALL the time whenever anyone asks how old Ava is!
Zoie's party was definitely exciting. We enjoyed gathering all of her princess and prince friends. They were all so cute and seemed to enjoy themselves (especially the girls). I went all out as usual and Rob was definitely ready for me to stop talking about, shopping for, and crafting for the party! At least he makes a super girl dad and helped out where I needed. He frosted the entire cake and helped in its construction and of course helped to setup the party! What a good sport!
Here's a few of the party's activities: hair and makeup station, ribbon tiaras, necklace making, rings, pin the crown on the prince/pin the slipper on Cinderella, duck duck goose with a magic wand, and more. We had a lot of fun and I loved it...oh and I think Zoie did too!
