My Fav's of the Season













Here are some of my favorite photos that we took during the recent holiday activities. We really had an enjoyable time this year. The kids are at the age that they are mesmerized by all the holiday spirit, which makes it that much easier to get into the spirit of Christmas. The kids, I believe, got everything they could have ever wished for, and were not at all disappointed. And Cameron made my day, and his cousin Jacob's day, when he decided to give away the brand new bike he won at school to Jacob. The look on my nephew's face on Christmas day when we rolled in the bike and told him that it was his was great.

Another B-day

Today I celebrated birthday # 32. I can hardly believe it. I still feel like I should be in my 20's. I don't like my thirties. Which means I am really not going to like my 40's. But I can't stop time so I will just have to get used to the years coming and going.

It was a pretty good b-day. Went to church and was wished happy b-day by those who knew it was my b-day. Afterwards I headed out to my parents house for some nice warm soup, presents and cake and ice cream. When that was finished we headed out to the Christmas Lights, but to our dismay the rain settled in and we had to drive through and not get those great pictures of the kids with their big eyes looking at all the many lights. On the way home my poor little Madeline got sick and I got to finish my b-day by cleaning up a really yucky mess.

If it weren't for the mess, I think I would have had a much better b-day. Oh well, there is always next year to make up for this one.

When the House Goes Quiet...



I have now learned that when my house goes quiet my little munchkin is up to no good. And of course I have to get pictures of my little munchkin up to no good.

Madeline has turned into the typical girl and wants to do everything that mommy does, hence it was quiet in the house and Madeline decided to put on make-up all by herself. Here are the pics to go along with the mess she left me to clean up.

As The Leaves Fall





My dear sweet little boy Cameron has been bugging me for weeks to start raking the leaves in our yard so that he could have some fun in them. I had been putting it off because the leaves fall so late in our neighborhood that I wanted to wait for the tree to drop all the leaves so that I would not have to do the job twice.

Well I gave in to his constant pester and took advantage of Madeline being down for a nap to start raking in the fun for Cameron. Granted I did most of the work and he had most of the fun, but I got some amazing pictures of my big boy having some little boy fun. I did not however get any pics of our blond bombshell, she slept the afternoon away.

And we of course had to rake leaves twice because the tree had not dropped all the leaves the first time. But it was all worth it in the end.
