melted quickly

i know that this winter was tough for everyone, clarksville tennessee included!  this was a very early ice storm in the season.  so pretty.  it does shut the town down though! luckily is melted quickly.

being challenged

kadence and three of her classmates were first on a classroom team for S.T.E.M ( Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) where they had to complete a specific challenge.  One team from each grade from all elementary schools were then invited to Austin Peay State University and presented another challenge, where they completed their work on site and presented their work.  Such an honor to be invited here!  Like to see these fourth graders being challenged!

waited for food

every year i do a photo shoot of the kiddos in place of buying school photos.  maybe someday i will regret not having school photos of them, but probably not - ha!  anyway, we stopped for mexican food afterwards.  they posed for one more photo for me as we waited for food.

make wigs

 here is her hair cut, dried and ready to mail off to be used to make wigs!

being pampered

for many months now, kadence has been growing out here hair in order to donate 8 inched to Pantene Beautiful Lengths in order to make a FREE (Locks of Love do not give their wigs away!) wig for individuals fighting cancer.  so proud of this little girl making such a huge change to benefit another person.  plus i think she really liked being pampered.

road trip too

on the way home from missouri, we stopped at the St. Louis Zoo.  i wish we had more time, what a FABULOUS zoo!  for the short amount of time we were there, the kiddos had a great time.  it was a nice way to break up the road trip too.

while we were in missouri for allison's wedding, i grabbed some twinkies for the kiddos for the first time in their lives to see if they would like them.  well.  they did not like them.  so i had to eat them.  all.

getting back together

in october my dear dear friend, Allison (right) married the love of her life.  she invited us all to attend and snap photos.  at the wedding also came our friend priscilla (left).  the three of us all lived in hawaii in 2002 and  spent many wonderful times together.  so nice getting back together!

out in the field

in september before eric left for Bahrain, I took a beloved trip to illinois and spent some hours behind my camera with aunt kim.  she recently got a canon rebel and was so excited to get out in the field. 

 first we went to a train yard

(aunt kim getting up and close, hehehe)

then to a clydesdale 

then to a random pumpkin patch

next, some random place off the side of the road

            love you aunt kim
