The challenge is Family.
As we celebrate this Christmas season I feel overjoyed because I get to spend it with my little family of 3. I love this time of year for many reasons and the main one is because of this little cutie. I love seeing her excitement as she learns all about Christ, Santa Claus, Rudolph, and so on. I love teaching her about the true reason for the season and why we celebrate Christmas. We also celebrate her Birthday on the 23rd and she'll be 2, she was the best gift we received that year, and forever her birthday will be special to us because she changed us for the better.
(surprisingly she hasn't touched the tree!!)

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

I snapped this while we were collecting pine cones for a holiday craft. She loved being outside.

Favorite photo from summer
I love this photo of curiosity as we explored Old Town Alexandria for our 5 year anniversary. We decided to take our toddler with us and I was glad we did when I saw this perfect setup right outside a cute little cupcake shop.

The challenge this week is "Color"
This little pumpkin has been her "baby" all morning. She carries this pumpkin all around the house and also loves to take it on a walk in her stroller.

I just love watching the random things this little girl does. She is so funny.

The Challenge this week is "motion"
We went across the country on vacation to visit grandparents and Aly met this little dog Zoey for the first time. It took her a few days of being scared to being totally in love with her. She giggled and ran around with her like they were the best of friends. Zoey loves to gives kisses and Aly loves to give hugs, so they were all over eachother for the few weeks we were there. She would love a little doggie of her own!

Any time this girl sees weeds that are pretty like "flowers" she has to pick them. I love that she is dainty and loves her flowers, her favorites are the yellow ones.

This girl is known for her squinty eyes, cheesy grin, and chubby cheeks. :) And she is obsessed with her new hat and wears it as soon as she is out of bed. All day long.

The challenge this week is Multicolored.
I love this photo I snapped of my Aly girl one day when we were exploring the park. She recently has learned she would rather be outside than in. It makes for fun little adventures and walks. And I love that SHE was the one who picked her own shirt while shopping
at H&M last week!

Favorite photo from March
My brother had come out to DC to visit us and we were downtown checking out the monuments when we spotted the most beautiful, huge, pink and white blossoms and we had to stop! They really popped out over night. It was such a wonderful sight and the perfect spring day!

The challenge this week is eyes. I love how blue Aly's eyes are.
She just learned to whistle and blow out of her mouth so this photo is only fitting for this week!
