American Girl Cafe with Anna......

agcafe7

What a magical place for a little girl!  Devin's mom & I surprised Cambria and took her to the AG Cafe while they were visiting.  She had no idea, until we started inching into LA and I think she started catching on!  We had a delicious dinner & of course her doll Julie joined us.  Dinner started with a buttery cinnamon pastry, which Cam was very happy about.  Who wouldn't want dessert first & then cake after?  Our waiter was so cute with her & kept asking Julie questions too.  Cam had the biggest smile on her face the whole time, & was very polite.  They're only little once & I am so glad we did this.  It was so much fun.

Cambria is so lucky to have Lori as her Anna.  She is such a sweet & generous Grandma, who really makes the time for her grandkids.  We had such a fun time on our girls night out!

We sure had a fun time celebrating this gorgeous girl's 8th birthday this year!  It felt like the party never stopped!  She was ecstatic to have her birthday be on Easter this year and so decided to have a Egg hunt theme for her party.  This is her second Easter themed birthday party, she just LOVES Easter.  What's not to love!

We don't know what we'd do without this darling bright shining girl in our family.  Her positive attitude and constant eagerness to help with Mara or help mom in anyway is so wonderful.  She is such a kind nature loving girl.  She is a great friend & such an animal lover.  She just has a nurturing soul.  I am proud to know her, and even more to be so blessed to be her mother.

Happy 8th Birthday Cambria!

Our sweet Cambria is getting baptized!

Cambria is 8!  Her baptism is this weekend and we are so excited.  I loved taking her baptism photos, I just kept looking through the lens at this gorgeous child of mine who has turned into a beautiful young lady.  She is my baby, my precious daughter.  I adore her & am so proud to be her mama.  She is kind and strong & full of joy.  She is my nature lover, my beach dweller.  Her spirit has always radiated such peace and happiness.  I can't wait to share her baptism day with all our family and friends & to see her become a member of this amazing church that we are so blessed to be a part of.  Cambria Nicole, I LOVE YOU FOREVER!

My amazing family.....

knudsenfamily1

While my family was visiting a few months ago my mom wanted to do a family photo.  We all moaned and groaned about it.....me included.  But now that I just uploaded them and touched them up a bit, I am so very happy we did that.  (Especially since Mara was totally hilarious during this shoot.  We have many more to prove it!!)  I love this family of mine so much.  I love Erik and his funny humor and excitement because I kept running back and forth from my camera on the tripod before the timer went off!  I love Ashley and Mara....two peas in a pod.  They love each other so much.  I love my dad's tender smile, he's such a sweet sensitive man at times and I always get teary when I think about him.  I miss living so close to him and his funny humor.  I adore my sweet mother.  She is so sweet and loving to us all, she is such a wonderful example.  I love my Erin OJ Niblet & her constant support & our jokes.  I love Devin, the perfect match for me!  And our sweet kids with their favorite auntie Hailey who is such a fun friend to them.  I even love that little Lola.  And those two cuties in the front will always have my heart.  They are such great siblings to Mara, I've never seen them love like they do now with Mara!  How blessed I am to have all theses amazing people in my life.  Feeling very thankful for all of them and the relationships we have.  So lucky to be a daughter, sister, wife, & mother.

Little Ballerina....

Cambria's first dance recital was so special.  (It also was last June!!!  I am so late to blog these days.) She looked beautiful and was so lucky to have both Grandma's there!  She had a ballet & jazz performance.   She danced so well & had the biggest smile on that stage!  I am so proud to be her mama!  Love her so so much!
