I was there for Averie birth-day and sometimes birth families feel like they've become a bigger part of my own. Whats the word for it? Anyway they're good friends of mine forever and even before. Shelby is one of the sweetest I have ever met, a good friend, and a even better mommy! Is that possible? Averie was welcomed home by her three furry siblings. Sadly since then her biggest, lovabliest, St. Bernard, Simba past away. It was hard to say goodbye to her. So very happy we were able to capture these special moments with their best friend. The morning was filled with lots of cuddles and love and some posed shots too that Averie didn't want to sleep for. ;) We finally wore her out for a few in her Moms wedding dress. I'll post those later.
If you grew up in Concordia, you know of my baby brother. Trask. He was and is just the most craziest kid, full of energy, weird ideas, and love for all. If you know him you know he has the biggest heart and never knows a stranger....everyone that meets him feels like they are already best friends with him upon their first visit. Yep, I actually spent many years living at our childhood home with Trask bringing home "strays" to feed. Yes I said strays. Most of us kids would bring home a kitten or puppy...not Trask. He would walk up and down the alleys until he found a stray kid. That's right a stray kid! ha! The stray would then become best friends with Trask, and Trask would take him over to our house. Often sneaking in the kitchen to cook up a gourmet seafood meal.
Trask met Ikay about, 5years ago? I think 5. They just hit it off, and can talk forever about the culture they love. Even through these two are worlds apart they always seem to be together at heart. Ikay is one of the kindest people I have ever met. She will go on and on thanking you for the simplest of things. Just a true sweetie. And miss Ziley! Ziley Marie is the cutest, happiest, and most cuddly... and I can't wait to see her again!
