Dear Norah,

Happy Birthday sunshine girl! That is what I call you because the sun seems to follow you wherever you go. You have a light inside you that is easy to see and makes all who know you smile. You are full of life. It is my prayer that your light will continue to grow as you age and never dim.


You have grown a lot this year and I am amazed at all of the little things you say and do. From the “guys” you draw to your ability on that little red tricycle- you learn so quickly! It is a pleasure to be your mother and have a front row seat to it all.


You love many things right now. Namely, princesses, but there are other things too: playing with friends, your brother, babies, your daddy, parks, your tricycle, your cousins, your grandparents, tea parties, dressing up, family night, laughing, screaming, running, chasing, and playing… to name a few.


You are loved Norah, by many people.

Happy Birthday.

Norah… in the latest Juney Band Ad!



Still deciding which one to use… smiling or serious. Either way, I think this will be the newest trend.

Walked out of the bathroom one morning to find this little cutie who could barely open her eyes because she had so many headbands on!

CINDERELLA and her sidekick GUS GUS the mouse…





Halloween this year could not have been more fun. Ohio just won “best place for trick-or-treating” in our book. People come out of their homes and line their driveways with chairs, fire pits and all, to hand out candy.  Who wants to go knock on doors anyway? You can get twice the amount of candy doing it this way! There were haunted houses inside garages, scary things in bushes, tractors transporting kids up and down the street, spooky creatures handing out candy and hundreds of kids eating it up- ours included!
