Our favorite friends came to visit!

Today we had a visit from our favorite friends Amy and Georgea It is so cute to see the girls together. Georgea is an absolute sweetie pie. My mom is in town for the winter so she came over too. She has been following Amy's blog and was really excited to meet the "newest princess". Love you guys!

Editing help needed!

Me and my camera are friends again..we've been estranged for some time. With most things I enjoy I go through phases and only seem to concentrate on one thing at a time. Lately it's been sewing and exercise so photography has taken a back seat. This morning I took some really great photos of Alexa but when I was editing ( I just use Picnik, nothing fancy) I noticed that she had those darn tattoos on her arm. I hate those things! I had tried twice to scrub those darn things off and just forgot about them this morning when we ran outside to take a few shots before school.
Two questions: How do you get those darn things off her skin? and How do you edit it off the photos? I tried the "blemish" feature and "airbrush" feature and neither worked.
Any suggestions out there? A couple of the photos are Christmas card worthy but not with a dolphin tattoo and Barbie on her arm!! : (

That smile!

Your joy is contagious. You make us laugh every day with your grown up expressions and your silly jokes. That smile means the world to me!

I love how you find the wonder in everything. You feel things deeply and see the beauty in the smallest things. Your curiosity and energy keep me young!

Your independence amazes me sometimes but you still "need the mama". I will always be here for you and will do my best to let you walk uphill on your own. You are one amazing girl!
