My Blog bio picture
  • Welcome to our blog!

    It seems crazy. Ten years ago Clint and I had just gotten married, and we were so young and carefree. It was just the two of us and life was pretty easy. The house stayed (reasonably) clean, we went out when we wanted, and traveled to some pretty incredible places. We didn't have a whole lot of responsibility, pretty much just to ourselves.

    Fast forward to 2014 and we now have three miniature versions of ourselves, two girls and a boy in the middle. Hayley is six and is as spunky and prissy as can be. Colin is almost five and is the nuttiest little thing imaginable, but oh so sweet. And Sydney, our littlest, thinks she's six and is already the comedian in the family. Despite our kiddos being so little, they not only now outnumber us, but they have managed to turn our world upside down. But we wouldn't have it any other way. We love 'em to pieces!

    The blog is filled with the weekly happenings within the Stuckey family, some funny, some touching, and some a little zany and crazy. Life is definitely better with kids in it! We love ours to pieces. Images + Words = Memories.


Our Little Fashionista

Hayley, as cute as she looks all dollied up in dresses, sometimes goes for a style all her own. Just last week she came prancing down the stairs in none other than a bright green sweater, pink sweat pants, purple Uggs, and a gigantic red headband from her Snow White costume.  And the words out of her mouth?!  “Look at me Mommy!  Aren’t I pretty?!”  Yes Sweet Pea, you are very pretty!  Most beautiful!  So I grabbed my camera.  I just had to!  But what I never suspected was that these photographs would be some of my all time favorite pictures of my daughter.  They’re completely her, nothing styled, nothing planned, just her.

1. Love those purple Uggs. Can you tell they are on the wrong feet?!

2. Love that she always wants to go out wearing her ginormous Snow White red bow on top her head.

3. Love that she has her own little mismatched style and is so confident.

4. Love that when she wears sweaters she insists on having just one button buttoned.

5. Love the little saunter in her walk.

6. Love that she tried to cut her own bangs three weeks ago (okay, maybe I didn’t love that :o).

This is the prettiest picture you’ve ever taken of Hayley. She looks like a little model. Even her self-cut-bangs look cute.

I love the last picture and the walking pictures the most! You can almost see the little prissy walk she does!

I’m a little sad. It won’t let me copy the last picture of her…

Great photo shoot. Remember, I am her agent. She is so cute and that last picture, well it is one of the best of Hayley in a relaxed position. Excellent. The whole series of pictures are arranged to reveal Hayley starting brilliantly without the face until the end. First class Muffin. That’s my daughter. A++++ Love, Dad

Who wants to go to HEB?!

You may be wondering why I’m doing a blog about HEB.  Lemme tell you!  Next to Disneyland, our local HEB market might just be the happiest place on earth. And we take 200+ pictures at Disneyland so why not a few at HEB?  Hayley and Colin LOVE going to HEB, and, I’m sure soon, Sydney too.  And it’s easy to see why.  The kids are greeted at the door with a shiny red balloon (although not this time due to a helium storage. Rats).  The shopping carts are in the shapes of little cars.  It’s as if Hayley and Colin have their own race course through the aisles.  And there’s food samples all throughout the store (orange juice, soup, pizza, sushi, tortillas, cookies, ham, crackers, soda, skillet meals, etc.)  My kids literally eat lunch there.

And if Hayley and Colin are good, they each get to pick one treat to take home.  Hayley was so excited when she found her “Dora cereal” that she did a little happy dance right in the aisle.  Check-out is the best part because Hayley and Colin each get two “Buddy Bucks,” which means two spins at the wheel and a chance to win the ever-coveted sticker!  Yes, my son likes to display his proudly. Colin was an Instant Winner this time!  Our lucky boy received none other than . . . drum roll please . . . a plastic pint-sized HEB container.  Yep, a container.  Nothing in it.  Just a container.  I was slightly disappointed, but Colin was thrilled!

HEB is somewhere fun!

I think your clock is off by a bit – It is 8:14 pm when I’m posting this on March 19.

HEB…No jet lag, no airport screening, no luggage, no cramped seats, but plenty of wide aisles, you don’t have to make reservations, you can always move about the store, you don’t have to fight over a window seat or aisle seat and you always shop First Class. What’s not to like? I love HEB too. DVD’s, books, ice cream, Deli food, Ice cream, BBQ sauce, ice cream, high end soda pop, ice cream, and free parking. And when the Stuckey kids are there HEB is where I want to be too. Love, Grandpa Bobby

Oh my goodness, HOW FUN! I’ve never thhougt to bring my camera to document the fun that is HEB. It IS like Disney! But I CANNOT push those darn carts! My boys LOVE it there! And the stickers! Thank goodness my oldest has not figured out that you turn them in for prizes yet! Your daughter’s hair is too cute! And, as always, love your color!!!! Fun fun!
