I Heart Faces….PURPLE~

I had so many purple things in mind when I saw this weeks challenge having two small girls it was easy so I started to look through my pictures and saw this SO MUCH PURPLE and a little back story on each one.   Here Pyper is sound asleep with her tooth fairy pillow next to her.  It was her first tooth and every time I peeked in she had that little pillow in a different spot.  Now on with the purple!

What stuck out:


The Blue’s Clue’s blanket we call it Blue for short around here Py got it at a yard sale when she was two and hasn’t let go of it since.  My sister even found an identical one on eBay just in case she ever lost it.  We go to see my family a lot and stay over and on several occasions I would pack on Thursday night and pick up Py from the sitter’s place and go straight there after work on Fridays.  One particular Friday I grabbed everything and tossed it in the car.   Pyper got in the car and looked at her blanket smelled it and asked where Blue was……I grabbed the wrong one.  She was good about it but was sure to tell me nothing can replace Blue not even another Blue.


Those striped walls Py’s room was the first one we painted when we moved in the house and I wanted it to be perfect but I will be the first to admit I have no decorating sense.   After much discussion with my friend Jen, we ran to the store and just ran with the colors! Purple, cotton candy pink and lime green.  Py loved it! she helped pick out her bedding which was purple and pink princesses in the summer and just purple for the winter (seen here). 

and THIRD:

That pink and purple Tinkerbell kid sized body pillow; Py got it for Christmas when she was three. Just like the Blue blanket she hasn’t used another pillow since and I am pretty sure the next time we wash it, it will fall apart.  But unfortunately, we couldn’t find an exact replica of this pillow so I bought another Tinkerbell body pillow.  Notice that it is only used under her favorite one.

I Heart Faces …..Babies

As I have said time and time before I am certainly not a professional photog but I love taking pictures of my babies!

This is the oldest pea visiting the littlest pea the evening after she was born.  She was so excited she asked her grandparents if she could wear that dress, a necklace and a headband.  You know she had to look good for her new baby sister (-:   I thought she looked too grown!

Phoebe’s birth day was very special for Py, unfortunately we went through a miscarriage before Phoebe was born.  It was very hard to explain to a then almost four-year old that Mommy didn’t have a baby in her belly anymore.  So when we were blessed with getting pregnant again we waited to tell her until we thought we were in the clear.  She was very very excited and still wanted a sister just like each of her cousins (both Chad’s brother and my sister has two girls now Chad’s other brother does too!).   Her dream came true September 11, 2008 and she beamed the whole time!

Now trot on over to http://iheartfaces.blogspot.com/ to see all the other precious baby pics!

iHeartFaces…..Dramatic Black and Whites


This week I decided to use this picture of Pyper.   It was after her Princess makeover at Disney she was tired and wanted some water, so Chad ran off to get some and we sat down.  She was so beautiful but sort of tired and the looks was just that of her waiting on her prince to come.

Be sure to check out the other photos over at www.iHeartFaces.blogspot.com they are always beautiful to see!

My angel at an angle the latest iHeartFaces entry

“Focusing on Angles”

The theme to the latest iHeartFaces contest.  


I chose this picture of the smallest pea because you could see that beautiful smile.  It seemed that once she got one tooth she got ten! This was one way of seeing her teeth, shooting from an angle.  It’s not the most pronouced angle just slight but it worked.  She was in the playroom and got hot, she decided that only one arm remain in her shirt.  It was so funny I would just call her Beyonce’ in her single ladies get up!

MARCH 2008

It was the “blizzard” of 2008 the county office actually closed that day!  The oldest pea was so excited that the snow had not stopped all night, and she was  begging to go make a snowman.  I was excited too because this was the first time she showed any interest in being in snow.  So I got her all wrapped up….three layers of pants three shirts and a dress yes a dress she was in her I only wear dresses phase and well it just kept her warmer LOL!

I will post a blog this week to show you the whole time we were out there the snow was to her waist and it was hysterical getting out to the front yard.  Once we got out there she instinctively threw her body down and made a snow angel. 

 I was cracking up! Surely she learned it somewhere “Where did you see how to make a snow angel Py?” “On Max and Ruby Mommy its a snow bunny!”  So it is Py…….so it is.  So here is my entry this week!

She’s my little snow bunny!

Go ahead and JUMP!

The latest iheartfaces contest is Jump for Joy!  I knew once I saw the theme that I had to search through all my photo’s for one on my brother and sister in-laws trampoline. 



I never liked the oldest pea on the trampoline it scared the bugeezers out of me.  I thought for sure she would jump off and break a bone and even at three years old she would laugh at me for thinking that.  But she is little and has no control ….so I thought.  This picture was taken October 2008 she was four and a half  ahd plenty of control and so very happy that Mommy wasn’t invading her space!
