Sisters & their wonderful Kids

 It was a wonderful, warm summer morning in Fort Irwin when I met with this wonderful family :) It was a lot of fun and arent these kids just adorable?

4th of July with my boys :)

Because of block leave here on Fort Irwin there were no 4th of July celebrations. But instead they had "Movie in the Park".
The Boys had so much fun and of course I had my camera with me. These two are just my favorite models in front of my camera. They give me inspiration for future photo shoots and are some of my biggest supporters :)
I love you Aiden Royce and Noah Liam :)

{Ice Cream} & my busy busy week

Hi! I hope everyone had a wonderful Weekend! 
I have been pretty busy last week with worrying about my husbands pay and a potential shutdown {I am so thankful it didnt happen} & running to doctors, ER and dentist with my oldest son. He had a cough, runny nose and running a fever. He was just miserable just laying on the couch watching TV or sleeping. Thank god he is feeling better now but he gave it to my youngest boy too :( So we had to start all over again :-S
So we just have been staying at home and relax with one of my addictions :)

Before I moved to California I never had this kind of ice cream before and now I am hooked! If I could I would eat a whole cup at once. It sure is addicting :)

I hope that everyone has a good start of the next week and hope to see ya soon... oh and before I forget!!
I decided that I will have a giveaway this month!! So watch out for the next Blog!

Fundraiser Garage Sale for Japan Victims on {Fort Irwin}

DKMS- {where leukemia meets its match}

Today I want to write about something that is really important to me.
The fight against Leukemia...
Last year i registered myself as a bone morrow donor... it was fast and easy...and it DOESN'T hurt at all!
If you want to know more about registering yourself as a bone morrow donor go to  DKMS Americas. DKMS is the largest Bone Morrow Donor Center in the world with over 2 Million registered Donors. But there are still thousands of people that are desperately searching for their match. Do you want to make a difference in this world?
Order your little kit and get swapped!!

My first week at our new home...Fort Irwin, California.

Hello everyone....

Its been a little over a week since I arrived at Fort Irwin and I got to be honest its not what i expected...its not that bad. I like it here...A LOT! I have heard so many bad stories about this place and so far i dont agree with it.
Yes its the desert but there is something about the desert that seems so beautiful to me.

So I am very happy that for the next few years I can call FORT IRWIN my home :)

The Standesamt (court house) ceremony:

I found a little assistant in the grooms niece :) she was adorable

This is a german tradition at a wedding.

Between the courthouse ceremony we went to the Ludwigsburg Castle....

The Pictures turned out amazing.
And with my luck i almost pushed over one of these 50.000EURO vases... thank god nothing happend.
But it sure is a fun memory that i will be telling my grandchildren :)

The Church Ceremony/Baptism of their son.

And the reception... it sure was alot of fun :) And i am so glad i was a part of this

Their family made them a DIA Show, it was filled with smiles, laughter and tears.
Even i shed some :)

I wish them all the best in the future and i hope they will be happy forever :)
