barbie ballerina knows she looks good!

& i agree with her!

Our Halloween [oct. 27th] in Baton Rouge was spent at LSU's Boozar, a program put on by LSU athletics. Natalie enjoyed it very much, as you can tell!
We spent the real Halloween in Vidalia at Trunk R Treat but I forgot my camera! I'm sure Mimi will have pictures of that up soon!

New Addition

This is our new addition to the family. A birthday present for Natalie from one of our friends. The turtle's first name was Penny but was quickly changed to Cinderella. She often names things after favorite movie characters & in case you did not know...Cinderella is her absolute favorite Disney Princess.

I guess we shall see how long with will last, either she will lose interest or we will not have time to clean his tank & be sickened by the smell..I will keep you posted.

But for now, this is our new pet, Cinderella the Turtle!

Our Beautiful Ballerina

[Natalie Allyse=Beautiful Ballerina]

Nat experienced her first ballet camp these past two weeks & loved every minute of it.
She stayed in Vidalia for those two weeks--hard time for mommy & daddy :(
But today made it worth while, we experienced Natalie's very first "in-studio showcase"
& we enjoyed every minute of it.

Although we were not too thrilled about Nat being gone for two weeks, we knew this was something she longed to do, something she loved & something that would make her happy.

And as parents, it made us happy to see our little girl experience another first in her life.

[one year later & happy as can be]

This past year flew by & what a year it was! A year full of many first and lasts.
We were back in Vidalia for our anniversary so we did not do anything really special.
We did eat our cake topper & I must say it was still delicious.
& Jami made us a cheesecake, delicious also.
I guess you could say we loaded up on all the sweet things we DON'T need!

Me at about 8 months pregnant..if not further along. This was taken at one of Cameron's tournaments in Denham Springs. It was extremely hot and I was being a good girlfriend by wobbling around to support him! :] I'm pretty sure this was at the ball park where the restrooms were at the entrance and the field Cameron was playing on was at the very back...yep, I was definitely being a good sport.

As you already know, Natalie is such a cheeser. This is proof that she has been cheesing for quite some time now. However, in all her cheesiness, she is still too cute!
This photo was taken in Hot Springs, Arkansas in 2006. The Gin Show was there that year and we were lucky enough to join! My family use to go to Hot Springs every summer back when I was younger so it was nice to go back. We went to the springs to capture Natalie's one-year-portrait. Such a fun trip & this little CHEESER enjoyed it very much!

After a long, rough school year,
it's officially over.
I have completed my first year of college!
& oh how wonderful it feels.
I can't even explain the amount of relief-
My gpa won't be a 3.0 like last semester but it's pretty close.
I guess everyone has their bad semesters
& I hope this was my one and only.
But considering my situation,
I'm happy with the outcome of this semester.
I will do better next semester though!
Anyway..I'm just glad to have a year over with
& to be able to say that I did it! :)
The downside of today:
Now I will go pack & clean
since I didn't get anything else accomplished this week
except for studying.
Going to see my love bug tomorrow.

I decided to do something new & creative for wednesdays.
I will post pictures that I have edited, but not the normal editing.
I love to edit my photos on
You should try it out!

A lot of people have told me that Natlalie looks like Michelle off of Full House. So, Cameron taught her to say what Michelle always said, "you got it dude!"
This is Natalie's version!

[I will add more later today]

We are counting down the days..
i love you so much.

I have never been away from Natalie for over a week. This semester Cameron and I decided to send Natalie back to Vidalia/Frogmore to stay with our parents. The week before finals and the week of finals...because we really felt that we needed to focus on finals.

This is the first day of week two and its getting unbearable. I know that finals are very important but gosh I miss that beautiful little girl and her sweet smile.

[beautiful little lady]

I can't wait for this week to be over & I'm hoping that it will fly by. I'm looking forward to seeing her face light up as she runs into my arms. A summer full of family time and fun.

[silly goose]

I'm trying to keep myself together but it's hard with out my girl here. I know that in the end it will all be worth it but it does not seem that way now. One final down and three more to go, hurry up weekend so I can see my girl!

We love & miss you love bug.
I hope you understand that this is what we have to do at this time.
Can't wait to see you!

Natalie trying ever so hard to blow the dandelion away before school one morning.
[one of my favorite images from this past week]

I know, I know. It has been too long & I'm sorry.
I definitely have a load of back tracking/catching up to do..& I promise to do that soon.

For some reason I am struggling way more than last semester with the management of college, work, household upkeep & an extremely active toddler...I mean little lady. I am pretty much overwhelmed completely.

At the moment I do not have the time to go into detail about life lately but I will edit this post after this week is over or hopefully sooner. I will be better at this. Promise.
