Our man.

Our man comes home every night to find us three girls fighting for his attention.  Four girls if you count Charlotte.  Greg loves his girls fiercely.  I see the joy in his face from being a father and doing his fatherly duties.  It makes my heart pretty happy to see.  Lydia cries out for Greg in the night if she needs anything which I find incredibly cute(and nice!).  Hazel’s first words have been “dada” and lately now, “hiiiiiidaaaaaa!”  Meaning “hi dad!”  The girls automatically light up each time they see their dad.  This man of ours is sure loved and cherished around here!

Greg loves a good cinnamon roll and I don’t make them nearly often enough.  So on Father’s Day I made a mean batch of cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting.  Greg and the girls had no problem licking the beaters for me.  Isn’t that the best part of baking sometimes?   photo June152014_KaraSimmons_8_zps44afc9f3.jpg photo June152014_KaraSimmons_9_zps54a9bed7.jpg photo June152014_KaraSimmons_10_zpsdecf2da3.jpg photo June152014_KaraSimmons_11_zps2e7a71f1.jpg photo June152014_KaraSimmons_12_zpsb07ca64b.jpg
We love you Gregory!

Sloane.

Remember when I mentioned back in March the girls and I flew out to Colorado(where my brother and sis-in-law live) to meet their newest cousin Sloane? Well, here I am finally sharing how cute she is. We love her. And Colorado is much too far away with her growing so fast already!

We just had to capture Sloane in her blessing dress as well. My mother made it out of Janel’s wedding dress! It is stunning. photo SloaneSmith2_KaraSimmons_27_zps5fb434e2.jpg photo SloaneSmith2_KaraSimmons_30_zps44b25c11.jpg
