I had fun today with these beautiful children!! Sky is a natural...hardly wears a stitch of makeup and looks beautiful! I had to get on stools to photograph her because it seems like she is a ft taller than me, ha. Maybe it's because I'm sooo short.

Keeton was as sweet as he was cute. He seemed like the type that would know how to do jump in the air and do that little high kick thing, and what do you know?! HE DID! I love that pic!

I love all their the very end I asked Sky could I spray down her hair with her grandmas water bottle and make it wet and kinda scrunch it for a grunge look. I can't wait to show you one of those too. She was game for ANYTHING!

Cheri, your whole family was just a delight to be around...including Michael's girlfriend! I hope to be taking there wedding pictures one day:)

My post might not be as often. I'm going to be working for my hubs on Tues and Thurs while the kids are in school. I'm actually looking forward to it and having to get myself dressed for a change. Normally I stay in my lounge pants most days(all day)! At least two days I will get dressed:)

Today I had the honor of photographing Sweet Cheri's family! Let me tell you why it was so special:

Cheri had been going to the doctor for several sinus infections and kept getting sick. She had a scan done and they found she has a rare form of cancer. I believe she was diagnosed on Dec 17th and went to MD Anderson several wks ago and her cancer had quadrupled in size. They are very hopeful that they can shrink it with chemo over a six months time and then try to remove the tumor at that time.

She has the sweetest spirit and the best attitude towards life! I text her while she was at MD Anderson and told her I wanted to do something special for her and she was thrilled!

Cheri you and your family are in my prayers everyday and we love you!!

Here is a link to her caring bridge..... Please join me in praying for her!

ok jenny you are on!

So, after Jenny's post yesterday and her words of encouragement I restarted Honestly, it really is the easiest and best thing out there! It doesn't cost a penny and you can download it to your phone...on the hero, go to market and type my fitness pal.

It will record what exercises you do and subtract that from your calories, and honestly it knows every restaurant and every food item! I put it on my phone and when I saw that you could have friends that could hold you accountable I thought this is exactly what I need!!!!! So Jenny thank you sweet friend!

I've put on some lbs and I have got to get them off so I can feel good again...I got up and did my elliptical and jammed to Austins praise music on his ipod. Good thing the neighbors can't hear outside of my house lol!! I was very proud of myself. I wanted to stop sooooo bad after 14 min's on that thing, but I pushed on and did the entire 25 min's of interval training and I can honestly say I FEEL GOOD!!!

My user name is apradr on and would love to have you join me!!!

I'm going be honest and tell you it has been mighty nice being able to do nothing! I always enjoy a little break! I have had a lot of time to spend with my family and it's been nice. Speaking of, we are headed out the door for a day early celebration of my bday to my favorite restaurant PF Chang's with my Mom and two children(they are out of school today!!)

I hate doing a post without a pic for you, but I wanted to let each of you know that Kari Jobe will be performing at our church on Jan 30 at First Baptist Florence. You can purchase tickets at Lifeway or FBC Florence.

She is amazing!!!! Her cd is great, but hearing her in person is just awesome. She is inspirational and all of her songs have such meaning...I feel I can relate to so many!!
