Olivia on Christmas Day

Olivia @ 2 years old wanted to be dressed in all pink but then wanted her hello kitty socks and her yellow Minnie Mouse heels.
I'd say her look is eclectic but adorable.

Shoot Laser!

One of Landon's favorite presents. Only of it were made of a softer material. The fist bumps are painful.

Happy New Year!

This is one of my favorite Landon & Daddy photos to date.

 Landon wanted to try on the costume first...
 ...then Olivia wanted to wear it.
 Daddy told her to check herself out in the mirror...she thought it was funny.
Landon wanted back in on the goofy fun!


Her personality shines through on this snap shot. She finds a pair of clean socks from my pile of laundry...they are way too big for her, so they become instant knee highs. Runs to the front of the house to put on a pair of Landon's new shoes and runs back to the family room.

Too cute.

Olivia's New Friend

 The door bell rings...Olivia comes running to the door to see who it is.
It's Pocahontas. She's come to stay with us.
Olivia's first doll...a first DisneyAnimator Doll. Smiles all around.

What this?

Her favorite question lately is...what this? She loves her puzzles and letters, 
that's for sure. It's all good because she's learning her ABC's.

Scentsational Season

Landon is holding a card made with a stamp set called Scentsational Season. The card smells like Peppersticks...the scent was created by using Scented Stampin' Emboss Powder. Way cool.

Too cool!

 Olivia is a character...she is too cool. Not to mention very colorful and sparkly too.
Landon wanted in on the action and put on his shades too.

Water Play

 Landon and Olivia love the water table I got them. Oh boy, did they have tons of fun splashing around. These pictures says it all.

Drizella from Cinderella

Cinderella's Step-Sister is likely to be the last Vinylmation designs that I will create.
I wish there was enough time in my work load to do more. Perhaps in the future.

Drizella is part of a Vinylmation Cinderella 3" Figure Set -- 5-pc. plus 1 1/2" Jaq and Gus
available at

This set is unique to me because every member of the Disney Store Creative Team had a part in design one or more pieces. So very cool.
