photos. fotos. phodos. by Jessica Peterson

Lazy summer afternoon.

Oliver watching tv while sitting inside the laundry basket.

I just told my brother that he was lucky I am around so much so I could document his kids... he says to me, "whatever, I could do that myself, all I need to do is point and click then brighten them in photoshop."

I am now boycotting taking photos of the kids until he can prove to me he can take photos as good as mine or apologizes to me for making such a lame comment...

Therefore these are the last of the Oliver/Abby images we will be seeing for a while.

Ummm.... Maybe I am bias but I must have the cutest nephew and niece. 

 The best hair on the planet

This one kills me it's so beautiful. 

Oliver makes a fire and is sad that it wont light up... maybe next time ?

Oliver's treasures 

Abby gives Hill her flower

These are rad... They wanted in so bad. Once again I can't help but think of my brother T and me as kids when I am around these two.  

Tonight Oliver snuggled up to me before he went to bed and he said,  "Jess, why are you leaving tomorrow?"  I told him that I had to go back home to take of things, then he said, " but Jessica I love you so much."   

Oh how I will miss them. 

Dear Lord, Please send me a jet so I can be everywhere at once.

Thank goodness for washable markers!
I couldn't help but laugh when I saw this. 

Such pretty, pretty nail polish Abby

I loved this, I was eating a sandwich in the kitchen and I looked over and the three of them had their eyes glued to the tv.  Grandma Susan is the best.

D's niece again.  I can't help it, she is too cute.  There are from her first birthday party.  I just want to say I love the Quebbman-Turleys,  thank you so much for feeding me all week, letting me be a part of your lives and the years of love and hospitality... know it has meant a lot to me.  

ASHDON by Jessica Peterson

This is baby Ashdon.

My beautiful friend Ashley gave birth to her son Ashdon earlier this week. So beautiful, maybe even perfect.

I swear it was only yesterday we were scabbed kneed kids collecting quarters to buy candy @ Wills Pit Stop and asking our moms if we could have a have each other over for dinner. I know I say this all the time but I am so happy you are still in my life. I am so proud of you Ash, you are going to be an incredible, loving, devoted mother. Hopefully I will have a kid before yours goes to college so they can hang out.

I just want to say that the Lewis' are some of my favorite people. They have always treated me like I am an appendage part of their family and I am grateful to them.
Chloe is just too perfect not to document and Charee was kind enough to let me photograph her. I was excited when I found out that the red feeding chair (is that what it is called?) is the chair her grandmother used... I love little bits of history mixed in with today's world.
