Princess Jasmine Turns 3

Princess Jasmine at 8 months...


And now she's all grown up and just turned 3!



Jasmine's my little sister and it seems like just a few days ago she turned 1... and now she is 3! She had a Disney Princess themed party on Saturday (of course... because she is a princess) and was full of energy when we saw her. She acts like she doesn't like being the center of attention, but I get the feeling that she does. You can't help but give it to her though since she is the cutest thing ever! Happy birthday Jaz!

An Artist's Touch

So our EXTREMELY talented friend Trijsten painted this beautiful picture of Chase fishing. Trijsten and Chase went fishing together over winter break and Trijsten (being an art major) had his fancy camera with him and took this awesome photo of Chase sitting on the dock. While back at school in Hawaii, Trijsten painted the picture perfectly. And I mean perfectly... when I saw it I was amazed at how it looked exactly like the photo! The hair... the hat... the beard... the poncho... identical. I requested the original copy of the painting so hopefully we get it! I wouldn't blame Trijsten for wanting to keep it to put up in his fancy art studio some day... because with this kind of talent, I know there's much more to come!

A Whole New Man

Before...



After...


As you can see... Chase's hair was getting a little out of control. On his head... and on his face. He had been growing out his hair and beard since our wedding day... almost five months ago! And well, I told him that once it got long enough to be able to put in a ponytail... than it was DEFINITELY time to cut it! And so unwillingly at first, he let me cut it this week. But now he loves his new hair-do and when he looked back at these pictures he agrees that his ponytail wasn't as "suave" as he thought it was at the time... and I'm sure you all would agree that he looks much more handsome now with all that hair out of his face! :)
