If you live in the Dallas area she does wonderful family pictures, and she does birth sessions. I think this is just genius. She takes pictures of your birth, and the ones she has done have been just beautiful. I love her and I love her pictures.
Her website is: www.eleventhirtysiximages.com
I also have news of my own...
I decided to follow Allison's lead and take the plunge into internet commerce. I opened my Etsy shop for Made by Missi.
My site is: www.missilea.etsy.com
Check us both out! :)

Lately I have been thinking about the kids when they were really little. This flashback is from when Emily was about a month old. Ben was such an easy baby, and Emily was the opposite. I remember being so tired all the time. These pictures were taken by me and daddy. It was a rare moment of calm with Emily. Actually, I should say that she was always calm as long as I was holding her. She just wanted me to hold her all the time, and I had other plans. I miss those days now. Back then I just wished for them to be over. Isn't that the way it always is? You think things are just horrible and you wish for something easier or better, and sometimes miss out on something wonderful. Well, this is exactly how it was for me with Emily's first year. I am sorry Emily. I love you little girl and I would not trade you for anything.
Brotherly love...he decided to get down and try to make her smile.

Let me first say...I am truly blessed. I lead a blessed life. Even during the darkest days I know that I am blessed. I know that the Lord is holding me up and most of the time carrying me, when I let Him. But I tend to take those blessings for granted even if I shouldn't. My latest big blessing is the start of this little business.
You see I really felt like the Lord had put this idea in my heart back in December. My friend Briana mentioned it to me out of the blue and I started to really think about it and pray about it. People had told me before that I should sell the stuff that I made, but I just never felt like I was good enough to do it. But I kept being pushed, so I took the plunge after Teacher Appreciation week. And it has gone better than I ever could have imagined that it would. This is due to the blessing of good friends, and the Lord.
I am working to fill about four orders right now. It is so much fun. I love making the stuff, and buying fabric, so this is the perfect little business for me. Tonight I am going to actually open the Etsy store. I will be promoting it tomorrow as soon as I get up and running. Meanwhile, here is the second order that I filled last night. :) I need to get Allison to come and take pictures for me, but you will get the idea.

At the ceremony the director made a PowerPoint presentation for us to watch with pictures of the kids through the years. My favorite part was really the music she used. I loved seeing all the pictures, but the music really touched me. My favorite was a song by Darius Rucker called "This Won't Last for Long". Oh my goodness, this song made me ball. Next year in May we will be watching Em graduate from Pre-K as well. This definitely won't last for long.
Ben with Riley his best friend. Ben, Riley, and Alec have been together for five years.
Throwing their hats in the air.
After graduation we had a wonderful dinner with the other parents and the teachers provided by Spaghetti Warehouse. We love all the parents and the teachers. Ben ended up sitting with Riley, and Emily wanted to sit with Ms. Krystal. We decided that since it was a kid free dinner that it was date. :)
