Marissa - N - Elmo

Best Friends Forever!!!


I had a very nice low-key Mother's Day.  My gift?  A lawn mower!!!  Just kidding, but we did have to buy a lawn mower yesterday.  The one the previous owners of the house left behind finally crapped out on us.  We didn't expect it to make it through one summer, so when our decrepit old machine gave us 4 good summers of mowing power, we were thrilled to say the least!  Rest in peace old girl!

We had our photo shoot on Saturday with Tamara.  We went to Garden of the Gods, and it was absolutely gorgeous.  And, as an added bonus surprise, we got to meet Tamara's precious little girl, Abby.  She and Marissa posed for a few pictures together, and I just got an e-mail from Tam sending me some of those pics.  She also posted them on her blog, something I don't have time to do right now, so if you want to see them, click on the link above!  

It was so much fun, except when Marissa kept hitting us because she did not want to be held and pose for the camera, she wanted to get down and walk around.  At least we know she loves the outdoors! Thanks again Tamara, I can't wait to see the fruits of our labor!

I was wondering if the photoshoot was this weekend. I can't wait to see the pics! That's so cool that you all met up.

Is Marissa watching Elmo in Grouchland in the 2nd video? We have Elmo days too. Whatever works, right?

Oh what a blessing it was to spend time with your sweet family! Marissa is cuter in person than on those videos! What a doll baby! I can say that she has more energy than that pink bunny! Will send you a photo of the girls together soon. Happy Mothers Day! :)
