the Knapp girls

I've decided to start a new tradition:

Fun days with Aunt Brookie:
--taking my nieces out for the day
--have way too much fun
--and give mommy a little break :)

I spent the morning with little Gabriella (she's getting so big!)
Then a few days later took Aulani & Gia to the park and lunch.

I know I'm biased...but seriously, could they get any cuter?!

I love these baby girls so much...


 Me: "Aulani, can you do a real smile?  With your eyes open?"
Aulani: "No, Brookie.  This is how I do it.  See...!"

Sara + birthday

Instead of having the traditional birthday party (friends come bearing gifts, eat food, open presents, eat cake, and leave) Sara decided to do something a little different...

She invited a few of her closest friends that have really made an impact on her life.
She gave a speech.
She gave them gifts.
She blessed them.

It was such a beautiful idea - blessing others when it is your day to be "blessed."

A lovely evening was spent eating food, laughing, talking, and devouring cheesecake.

Giving her speech...


This girl LOVES whip cream...

Thanks so much, Sara, for letting me celebrate your life and birthday with you!
