Time Flies When You’re At Scooter’s Jungle: A 3rd Year Teaser Story


Where has the time gone. This bold, adventurous, running three year old was barely walking yesterday. Ok I exaggerate, but really. He is growing waaaay to fast! He had a blast celebrating his 3rd birthday with family and friends at Scooter’s Jungle, where even adults can get in on the action.




And yes I did crawl and climb, (I think I earned my Kid Photographers stripes with this one!) in and through the various apparatus. What was I to do? I had to get the shots and K.J. slowed down for no one.




Happy Birthday little Sir! May all your days be filled and overflowing with adventure and laughter.

Delivered! Operation Christmas Child


So for the past couple of years, we have hosted shoe box packing parties to donate gifts to children around the world during Christmas. (Click here for more information)


This year time got away from us, and we could not coordinate the party we wanted, but instead held a mini one in Los Angeles amongst ourselves. Our Goal was to pack 20 boxes, but the missions department at our church decided to get in on the partying too! All together, we donated 30 boxes! Woohoo. And today was the day I delivered them. So glad to know wonderfilled people excited about giving and sharing the love of Christ.



Oh, and it’s not too late for you to give if you want to. Shoe boxes are being collected till the 23rd. Find a drop off location in your area HERE. Or sponsor a shoe box and donate $7 towards shipping Here. Spend a few moments learning about this awesome work being done by Samaritan's Purse, and have a blessed filled beauty full!

December 12: A Prediction Story


After driving in circles because not even online maps could find this place, we arrived at a celebration in anticipation of a blessed and already well loved little guy. Congratulations to soon to be uplate parents D&E.



I must say my photographic skills were put to the test too. I mean really, a Nikon? The last time I held one of those I carried 20 rolls of film with me, and if I can recall, I ruined a roll trying to treat it like my beloved Canon! Serves me right for leaving my equipment in my office thinking I would be a doting cousin. Honestly I thought I had my camera with me as I usually do but things have been busy at Casa Del Smith. But that’s another story.


As for now, Congratulations! May you have joy and laughter everyday and peace filled nights.
