NO RULES WEEKEND BLOG PARTY #212!



Hello and Happy Holidays!

Things are feeling very festive over my way. 
At the beginning of this week we got a little bit of snow.
It was only about three inches, but it was the perfect amount
for playing in, and not too much to clean up outside.

On Monday I shared the holiday photos I had taken of
my girls. If you missed it and wanted to take a look
here's the link ---> 2016 Holiday Photos!

What have you been up to during this busy season?
Do you have any snow? I'm sure there's someone
out there who has never seen snow. Or perhaps
you're already buried in snow?

It's time to share what you've been up to below!

Are you ready to find some new blogs to 
read, and perhaps gain some new followers? 

Or maybe you'd like to grow your social networks, 
or make a sale or in your Etsy shop? 
Come join the fun :)

The party normally runs from Thursday mornings
at 6 am US EST until 3 am US EST Monday. 

If you follow me in any way  please leave 
me a quick comment and I will follow 
you back as soon as I can :)

Holiday Photos!


Here in New Hampshire our week started with our first real snowfall. Only about three inches fell, but it was enough to create a traffic nightmare as it began during the morning commute. Most schools were not delayed or cancelled, and there were many, many accidents. Luckily I didn't need to travel this morning, so we went outside and had lots of fun playing in the snow.

I love how excited my little one gets when she sees the snow. She was so excited to bundle up and get outside. Now that we have a bit of snow, and I have most of my Christmas shopping done, I'm feeling excited about the holidays.


And I'm even more excited to share some of the holiday photos that I had taken of my two youngest girls...Autumn who is 13, and Star who will be three at the end of January.


I found a terrific photographer who was so kind to squeeze me into her schedule, and she was great with my girls. And best of all I discovered that she is also a blogger. To see her info you can scroll down to the end of this post! 


Now here are a few of my favorite photos from the shoot!

In many of the photos Star has perfected the fake smile, but there are some good ones with her true smile. Now comes the difficult part of choosing my favorites for printing!

Do you normally have holiday photos taken of your family? One day I hope to get all four of my children together in one photo. Perhaps on Christmas Day! 

If you'd like to take a peek at Jennifer's blog here's the link: 
Plain Vanilla Mom

You can find all her social media links there as well. 

And if you'd like to check out her photography Facebook page here's the link there: Jennifer Haas Photography

If you connect with her let her know I sent you!

Here on the blog I do have a few upcoming posts which are pretty exciting. They include a new post and giveaway for JORD Wood Watches, and a very cool review of a new book series just for girls. And as usual my No Rules Weekend Blog Party will begin Thursday morning at 6am!

Have a great week!!

NO RULES WEEKEND BLOG PARTY #210!


 

For all of you celebrating Thanksgiving, 
I wish you a happy one! I don't expect this 
weekend's party to be a blockbuster due to the
holiday, but I do hope some of you out there are
able to link up and say a quick hello :)

I'll be getting together with family and
eating plenty of delicious food! And the best 
part is that there won't be any travelling involved, 
as all of my immediate family live close by.

How are you all celebrating? Are you
travelling near, far, or hosting at your home?
Or perhaps you've chosen to go out to eat to
make things easier? Personally I couldn't do without
homemade dessert...that's my favorite part. 

On another note you may recall last week I 
mentioned that I was having a Christmas photo shoot. 
I managed to get my girls dressed and ready, which is not 
easy as my almost three year old runs away whenever I
try to brush her hair. But everything went smoothly
after that. I promise I will soon have something to share!

Anyways I think it's time to party!
Are you ready to find some new blogs to 
read, and perhaps gain some new followers? 

Or maybe you'd like to grow your social networks, 
or make a sale or in your Etsy shop? 
Come join the fun :)

The party normally runs from Thursday mornings

NO RULES WEEKEND BLOG PARTY #209!


Welcome to the party!

This past week I have finally got some things done
including a bit of Christmas shopping, and a
Christmas photo shoot set up for my girls.

I'm really excited about the photo shoot. 
The photographer I originally planned to use 
didn't work out, so I had to find another
photographer whose photos I still loved,
and that had availability.  

This was no easy task, but I finally stumbled 
across the perfect one and I'm so excited! Perhaps 
once the photos are ready I'll share a few with you 
all :) I know I haven't shared any photos on 
here for quite a long time, and I think it's long
overdue..what do you think?

Anyways I think it's time to party!
Are you ready to find some new blogs to 
read, and perhaps gain some new followers? 

Or maybe you'd like to grow your social networks, 
or make a sale or in your Etsy shop?
