E's 3 Year Photos

Little E turned 3 on Thursday and so, as is tradition, we went and had her photos taken at the JCPenney Portrait Studio. Here is a look back at the last three years up until today.


One Year

Two Years

Three Years

It's often hard for me to notice how her looks change over the years until I look back at these comparison photos. She did such a great job with the photographer. Lately she has the tendency to make an exasperated expression when you ask her to smile unless I specifically ask her to "make a pretty smile" and even then it may not be her natural look. However, we were very lucky to get so many fantastic smiles out of her and K as well.

Here are the collage photos we chose and the individual photos for a better view:

So there you have it. Another photo session done, until August when K turns 7. Ack!

Take care,

Happy Third Birthday, E!

It sure has been a busy few days in the JAKES household. On Thursday it was Little E's birthday and Great Grammie and Grampie came over for lunch.

That evening we all went to see Disney's Frozen On Ice. It was a great show!

On Friday I spent all day getting things ready for her birthday party.
On Saturday we hosted her third birthday party.

On Sunday the JAKES and Nana and Papa went to the JcPenney Portrait Studio for E's three year old photos as well as family photos.

Little E, you are an amazing child, a sweetheart of a daughter, an incredibly funny person, and a wonderful little sister. Thank you for blessing our lives with your smiles, cuddles, and love everyday. This world is truly a better place because you are in it. We love you so much!

Fun with Selfies: Photo Booth Style

Wow, it has been a really long time since my last post. Sorry about that :(

I have two Christmas projects and a couple of recipes I've been meaning to share but I just don't have the motivation to do them in the evenings. I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that [A] and I have been binge-watching the show Dexter. It's disturbing but strangely addictive.

Anyway, to make up for lost time, and the fact that it's been since Halloween when I last posted any photos of the girls, I present Fun with Selfies: Photo Booth Style!

I simply followed [K]'s lead and copied whatever face she was making. People have told me in the past that we look alike and seeing these photos of us together definitely sealed the deal for me.

I hope you all have an wonderful Monday and in the ever memorialized words of Bill S. Preston, Esquire, "Be excellent to each other!"
