Well Hello There!

I have, ahem, been missing in action... I wish I had a valid excuse, but the only thing I can come up with is I have been living life instead of blogging about it. I have really enjoyed my time away and doubt that I will continue to blog as much as I used to, but do want to document all that goes on in our lives as this is for Miss Paige. I have missed popping in on my favorite bloggers and plan to pay you all a visit SOON!

I'm going to let the pictures do the talking (there are A LOT, so if you don't enjoy pics, you might want to check back later with updates :) ).

You see this little girl? Well, she has been having a BIG year! Probably the most eventful of her life. Again...I'll let the pics do the talking! This is a shot that was taken for her new gig as a model. I have been asked to be a photographer part time for her agency. Big stuff for the both of us and LOTS of fun!

This was her first "gig" this year in the fall. She was asked to dance in a christian music video. The video will be out this month and we are beyond ecstatic! She got a nice little start to her college savings fund and I am proud to say I let her choose if she wanted to take some out to "play" with and she proudly said, "NO, I want this to go towards college!".

She has always been a social butterfly, but this year has taken the cake. She experienced her first Haunted House...
