paper dolls





My grandma used to make paper dolls with me.
Jensy loves to make them.
When we make them together
I feel close to my grandma in some way
I sure miss her
and I'm grateful she took the time with me...

What's better than passing on a tradition?

This one's for you, Grandma Westbrook!

Hey Shelby-

It is fun to look at your blog. You are an amazing photographer. I loved these pictures. Absolutely beautiful!

We make paper dolls and all of their stuff at our house too. Hannah is constantly coming up with new items to include with her dolls.

It was fun spending some time with you the other day. You are such a fun person and the cutest mommy. I love your blog!
