Kiera’s ChristmasBirthday Party

18 Dec 2012

A couple of random iPhone snaps to remember the awesomeness of the night.

Oh YOU KNOW there were some amazing Christmas cookies…

Awww. (Behind Chief you can see the photobooth backdrop)

Surprise Guest! UJ!
Whaaat!? Such a fun surprise!
And we got Aunt Pam on the phone, and it was some great Gott family love.

You might want to know,
There are much better photos over here at (the
NEW & IMPROVED) Natural Light Photography Website!

We put the kids down in Kiera & Cole’s bed so we could stay longer…

Fun times. Happy Holidays, and the best year ever (twentynine!) and a new
apartment layout, and festive jammies, Cherry M&Ms?!, ancient rap reggae, best friends, family, and a new NLP website…

dare I say?

Lucy’s Ballerina Party

05 Nov 2011

A Huge Thank you to Matisse and Cora, our beautiful ballerinas, for making our party so fun and lovely!
Thank you to Jeanette for sending adorable ballet cookies, post haste! My other hero at the post office is Fairy Godmother Kristi, who sent the party favors – as you can see, they were way too cute.
Thank you to Cole and Kiera, for taking such pretty pictures – without which there would be no show (You can never take photos at your own party). I loved the party! Lucy did too – ” ‘Allerina Party! Cakes! Big Party!”
Last, Thanks Honey (Mark), for driving around, getting those huge pink balloons, and most importantly, for putting up the ballet barre in our living room (a.k.a. the dance studio), which totally passed the ballerina test. Hooray! You rock. xxoo

Midsummer Night’s Dream – An Engagement Party

15 Aug 2011

This weekend we had ourselves a bash! Here are the photos – I have to admit they are badly one-sided, with not enough of Alex’s people! (I didn’t take any photos, and the old adage is true – you never take good photos at your own party. So, that’s my disclaimer.) Alex’s mom, Becky, was our generous and gracious co-host. This gorgeous place is her garden.

Alex and Madie were adorable, the desserts were wonderful, the drinks were flowing, the fire was roaring, the lights were twinkling, the roses were fragrant, the laughter was happy… Let the wedding planning begin!

Just what you need – December photos in January. But Kristi graciously shared her photos with us, and I’m just getting to that disc now.
Remember those cute gift tag cookies? Here’s the party that went with them! (UPDATE: And here’s the party blogged on SweetKiera.com)

This invitation rocks!

Thank You Cole and Kiera for hosting such a fun night!

Lucy’s First Birthday – Party Slideshow

08 Nov 2010

I’m very excited to share our party photos! Many thanks to Kiera for all her planning and baking – we had fun! Read about this on her blog too! – and to Kristi for sending love and supplies from afar. Also to Cole and Madie, for midnight sugar, the gorgeous cherry tree, and for giving Lucy something to eat. Best quote of the day came from Amanda, who grinned and shouted, “I want to live here!” What a compliment! And I can’t believe our little Lucy is One!!
