Which one do you like the best?


Before I go to bed…

July 31, 2008

One day last week, ‘We’ and I took the boys to play in the water at Market Street.  While the boys played, I took a few pictures of Ali…Here’s one of my favorites.

And my big boy…

July 31, 2008

Here’s an old picture of my big boy…When he was just a baby.  I was going through old pictures and found this one.  It’s one of my favorites for a couple of reasons…1)He still has his passy and his blankie had just started falling apart…Both his passy and blankie mark the time for me. 2) And because he’s so little!  He’ll be three in just two weeks.  It’s true when they say, ‘Enjoy them.  Time passes so quickly.’  I feel like this picture was just taken yesterday…It was taken two years ago. 

Now I have the cutest story from tonight…

You have to know that Kole is in his best mood around 9 at night!  He is the world’s BEST child once he’s been put to bed (which is followed by him getting up a dozen times and us going in and out of his room another dozen times just to spend time with him while he watches a movie…Yes, he gets to watch a movie every night!)…But my point, he’s happy, sweet, lovey dovey, complimentary…You name it, he’s everything precious!  No grumpy attitude and no fits!

Okay, back to my story…

First, I was sitting at the computer when Kole came in the room (he had gotten out of his bed).  He came over to me and said, ‘Mommy, I have to tell you something…I love you so much.’  Then he wrapped his little arms around me and hugged me and kissed me!  All his idea!  Of course, I kissed his face a million times and told him how much I loved him too.  He ran out of the room…Just to run back in and say, ‘I forgot something…I forgot to give you another kiss.’  So I got another kiss! 

So I’m still on cloud nine from all the sweetness from earlier when…

We were in Kole’s room…Just the two of us.  I was putting together Julie’s CD and he was in bed watching Dora.  Dora was talking about ‘what makes her happy…her backpack, singing, etc…’ and Kole said, ‘Mommy, you know what makes me happy…You.’  Aaaawwwwww.  My heart melted.  And I attacked him with lots and lots of kisses!  🙂

My baby

Okay, I just got through editing Julie and Gaby’s pictures…And I had a little time to play with my kiddos’ bath pictures from the other day.  I wanted to post a few of my baby, Karson.  So silly and so sweet.  Just look at these faces!  🙂

Yes, I’m this excited about editing!  🙂

Here Amber

Since Amber was the first and ONLY one to answer my question…I used my new trick on Abby’s picture!  See what you think!

Can you tell the difference?

July 27, 2008

I am so excited!!!  I learned a new trick…And this was first time to do it!  Now that I know how to do it, I can’t wait to try it again and again!  So without telling you, I want to know if any of you can tell the difference in the two pictures…And I DID NOT adjust the levels/lighting in this picture.  Hhhhmmmmm…..

His sweet face!

Here are a couple of Karson and his cute messy hair, tiny freckles and chubby cheeks!  And smelling like baby powder!  LOVE IT!

Good times, good times!

I took the boys to the park today to feed the ducks and play in the sand, on the slides…And just get lots of energy out!  It was SO HOT!  We only lasted about an hour.  Then it was home and straight into the bath!  The light was perfect while the boys played in the bath…So I pulled out the camera!  And dodged lots of splashing! 

More Paul and Leah!

July 24, 2008

Okay, usually Paul is SO good for the camera…Smiles on command, sits however we ask, looks anywhere we tell him to…This time, NOT SO MUCH!!!  Cute as ever, but this time, he was not having it!  I caught a couple cute ones, but little Leah was the star of the show! 

We asked Paul to sit on the grass and smile (like above) and he thought this next pose was a much better idea!  🙂
