WEZL’s Concert for the Kids…let’s build it!

MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital is close to our hearts as our two boys spent a little bit of time there.  One for prematurity and one for viral meningitis at 4 weeks old.  I love when I am asked to help out towards a great cause.  Last night put me up close and personal at a fantastic songwriter’s concert with Gary Allan, Marren Morris, Big and Rich and Trent Harmon (the very last American Idol!)  Fun times with great music.  Let’s build this new Children’s Hospital!

Look up…you go where you’re looking!

So…I leave this family each time with a little more love in my heart for all of them.  Daddy used to tickle me when he would say, “At least someone in our household cries each day….”  I get it, I am a mother of three and things can get hairy.  Sweet “A” brings a special ingredient to the recipe…but that just brings more kisses and love to the mix.  “C” and “P” are full of big grins and eagerness to play with me…and give kisses to little Miss Delicious.

As a quick side note, I think Mama is one of the prettiest around.  She has been blessed with the beauty of always looking “refreshed.”  I know, I know…there is no such thing in motherhood…but you do look it.

Sittin’ on the dock with the girls…

It’s really fun to show up to shoot a family year after year…and recognize the different personalities.  I always enjoy this great little crew…and the fun that naturally comes along.  From gold, glitter cat ears to posing with bunny ears…merry, merry to the best.


Mama and Phyllis…

Mama doesn’t have a chance…for a quiet moment without tree-climbing, head-standing, head-locking with all these boys.  Even Daddy gets way up high in a tree!  Merry Merry to you, year after year!

Feed ALL the ducks…

I’ve never seen a child get so lucky and successfully hand feed duck…after duck…after duck.  Mr. Happy is ready to go and always with a smile.  Thanks for such a great morning together.  I’ll let you know when the rest of your gallery goes up.

Mama, Daddy and all the Sisters…

Perfect Sunday afternoon with these five.  Sister couldn’t get over the squirrelfest…there she was…in her own little heaven with a slight case of doggie ADD.  It’s real, I witnessed it.

She’s in charge…and sweet as can be.

You cannot find a more patient, kind and go-with-the-flow big sister.  Three boys younger than her…and she’s cool as a cucumber.  Thanks for chauffeuring me around to find the next location.  Enjoyed our afternoon together.


I promise you I mean it when I say…the crazier the better.  I know it can drive any Mom and Dad to drink…but don’t worry…sit back and enjoy the happiness!  This Mama and Daddy team are beyond awesome…and little Dennis and Menace are nothing but delightful…pure energy and happiness.  I had myself a fabulous morning with all four of you.
