Honestly, I don't know how I got so lucky.  I sometimes wonder why Heavenly Father put so much trust in me and sent me these beautiful, smart, kind-hearted children to raise.  I'm definitely not winning any mother-of-the-year awards or anything, but I'm constantly trying to be better...so that counts for something, right?  Anyway, I'm just so grateful that I was blessed with these two kids.  They teach me so much and fill my heart with more love than I ever thought was humanly possible.  Sure, they can drive me crazy every once in a while, but I can't imagine my life without them. 

Ever since I got a new camera, I've been trying to work on my photography skills.  It's always been a passion of mine, but I have no plans of doing it professionally...it's just fun!  Luckily these two enjoy going out on little adventures while I take pictures and they love posing for the camera.  When Cherokee asked if they could send my kids some cute clothes to wear, I simply couldn't resist.  It's actually one of the few clothing brands I purchase on a regular basis for my children (their clothes are sold at Target), so I can say with certainty that I love their affordable, stylish and durable items.

I hope you enjoy these pictures from our little photo shoot adventure!


  1. First of all, this post made me tear up. Women like you and your children want me to be a mother even more than I do now! And the kids look absolutely adorable. AND stellar photog skillz, Jennypooh.

  2. Great job on the pictures Jen! Love their outfits and I love Cherokee! They have the best clothes. Its hard being a mom to a wild thing. In your case two wild things but I think you are a great mom. Your kids sure do love you and I can see it. That's all that matters!
