Let your love shine

Let your love shine, always, in everything you do!!

We are doing our best to teach our kids this, and as we head back into the school year this is even more important!! We are, of course, anti-bully- having been the kids that went through that in school, even into some high school. We believe that everyone is unique, and just because they are interested or like something that someone else doesn’t, that doesn’t make them non-friend worthy! We can learn so much from each other.

Our kids have done a phenomenal job at making others feel comfortable and being their friend even when others see things differently.  I pray that they continue to show this love to everyone, giving them the chance they deserve even as adults.

Now that our oldest two (13 and 11) are going to be in high school soon, we didn’t expect to have another to experience these things, lol! I think she will be just fine as well <3.

This shirt was absolutely perfect and we found it at Target on clearance a few months ago, in March I believe.

We usually buy a size up for Bentlie so she can get some extra wear time because she grows so fast. Now that the other two are slowing down, its becoming easier with their sizes.

Bentlie sitting in her great grandmothers chair in the formal living room. So sweet! She even let me paint her nails. Now, she gets upset if I don’t paint them when she hands me he nail polish, haha. Girly girl!

These gold bows just MAKE the outfit!

This shows how the skirt was NWT! There were two available at 18 mo but unfortunately, I only needed one, lol.

Those eyes though!!! This photo was taken for our OOTD (outfit of the day) we did a few months back around her birthday month :). The leggings have little gold flowers so it went great together!

Since I am a bit behind on my blogs because there is some big news coming up in the Laura C Cole & Co. world, Im going to get them all posted this week so I’m hoping I don’t overload you with cuteness ;).

I hope you enjoy. These are super adorbs, and Bentlie absolutely loves them! We let her pick out her outfit each day :).

For this outfit you will see the same shirt worn different ways, but it is one of her favorite shirts. When she sees it she grabs it and hugs it with the biggest smile!!!

The photo below was from a few months ago, and it still fits her. We buy a size up so clothes can last a bit longer. In the above photos you can see how much her hair has grown!!
