My Wedding Shower!

Jin picked us up a couple t-shirts for Mexico the other day and they wound up coming in handy this weekend..

I had gone out jewellery shopping for the wedding with one of my bridesmaids and when we got back everyone was waiting to surprise me!!! What an awesome surprise, I had soooooo much fun!

Thanks Mandy for taking some photos!

We played this hilarious game where I had to correctly guess what Jin's answers to the questions had been. Every time I answered incorrectly, I had to wear another goofy accessory.

lol.. I'm sure he'll love that I posted this! That's not even what I guessed!

As you can see I got quite a few wrong... oops!

Kai's Birth

I can see why birth photography is getting so popular.. It was such an amazing and surreal experience to witness a baby's birth and the parents reactions to this new addition. It was completely indescribable..

I had a really tough time choosing images for the blog, just because there were so many incredible images to choose from. One of my favourite images is probably too graphic for the blog, so I will post it here instead.

Ella and Kai both had gifts for each other, which I thought was a very sweet way to introduce the two..

Tyler, Keely, Henry, & Avery

What a FUN family!! And they have three dogs at home! They are going to have so many great memories together to look back upon when they are older...

These first two are my favourites from the day..

You guys totally make me want to have four kids!

Raspberry Truffles

I'm not very handy in the kitchen and Jin generally makes all our meals (the last time I tried to make a meal our place smelled of burnt bean soup for two days!), but I've decided that I should start baking more often because I do enjoy that and I loooove baked goods!! My plan is that once a week I will bake something new, starting today..

My first challenge was raspberry truffles and they turned out delicious!!!

Here's a link to the recipe incase anyone's interested in making some for themselves :)

Brides Against Breast Cancer

If hanging onto your wedding dress is not something that is a necessity to you then I recommend checking out Brides Against Breast Cancer. They're an organization that accepts bridal gown donations either from brides or bridal shops, and the dresses are sold at their fund-raising events. Proceeds from these events are used to "make wishes and dreams come true for women and men who are losing their fight against breast cancer."

Sounds like a great cause to me and I will definitely be shipping off my dress once I'm done with it

Chloe was a treat to photograph.. She hardly fussed at all and was just a little angel..
