Mini Me is Minnie Mouse This Halloween

Moira and I were wondering how we should dress up Tessa for Halloween. Luckily my mother decided for me! This sweet Minnie Mouse costume arrived in the mail last week, and we couldn't be happier with it. Tessa gave me a big smile when I put the head band on her and showed her how she looked in big sister Moira's bedroom mirror. Here is Tessa, exactly 5 months old, riding in her sling in her new Minnie Mouse costume. As I'm sure you would agree, this picture is too cute but not exactly spooky. However, I would like to enter it in this Spook-A-Look Halloween Photo Contest. The contest is hosted by Giveaway Blogs and Uprinting.com. Wish me luck!

Big Sis and Happy Baby by Amber Moran

Artist Amber Moran of West Palm Beach, Florida just completed this portrait of my two girls, Moira and Tessa. I just wanted to share it. I'm really overjoyed at how it turned out. As someone who does custom work, I really appreciate it when the customer just trusts me with my process while giving me a few guidelines and frame work. I was excited to see what Amber would come up with when I did the same for her. I just told her that I would like both girls if possible and something fun and whimsical. Then I sent her a couple of pictures and a link to my twitpic account. I was so surprised and delighted with what she did. I am happy that this gave her a chance to experiment with something different too. Check out her Etsy shop if you are interested in a custom portrait.
