Happy Birthday!

Chansler Ace, the cutest nephew in the history of nephew’s, turned ONE today!  I can’t believe it!

One year ago we were welcoming you into the world and gazing into your baby blues and look at you now!  You’re an independent little guy who walks wherever he wants, you babble like crazy (unless you’re FaceTiming with me and Uncle Forest), you still have the chubbiest cheeks that I wish I could smother with kisses everyday, and you’ve got the whole family wrapped around your little fingers.  We love you so, so much, chunk-a-munk!

weekly prints [11/25/2014]

So I fell out of my routine.  It’s practically been a month since I posted weekly prints – not because I haven’t been taking pictures.  Mostly because life.  I traveled to IN the first week in November to visit my mom during a chemo treatment.  And last week we were jam-packed with something different every night (we felt so bad leaving Indie at home so much but we definitely spoiled her with love/attention this weekend).  And I was hit with the tired/headache/need-to-lay-in-bed-all-day bug last Sunday.  So here I am, with a post PACKED with pictures for your viewing pleasure!

I want to promise that I’ll be better at uploading/sharing pictures but we’ll see.  I’m taking a ton of pictures and I’m getting more comfortable using manual mode. woot!
