Day 212

Technical difficulties...

I had planned on doing something totally different today, but then C appeared looking like this. I don't even want to think about how he made it downstairs. Is it wrong that the first thing I thought of was a pic for my blog??
He forgot to unbutton the top button before putting his shirt on...DOH! So with a little help from mom...

Success! A much more comfortable C ready for school!

Day 211

New ring...

M has been wearing a key ring around her finger for a ring the past couple of days so I thought perhaps she might be old enough for a real one. This morning I let her try on my pinkie ring to get a measurement of her finger and later in the day, I went to James Avery and picked this one out for her.
When I gave it to her after she got home, she said thank you and gave me a big hug because she said that just a thank you wasn't enough. I asked her what she thought the ring meant and she replied, "that my heart belongs to Jesus." I love this kid.

And of course, little man asked me to take his picture "just like this" and who could say no to that? Certainly not me.

Day 210

Finally worthy...

My photographer friends will know what this means. These tasty treats came in a box from my lab to let me know that they love me. I am so glad, I was beginning to feel a little left out of the Blow Pop gang! Ha-ha.

Day 209

Waiting for the bus...

The bus was so late this morning that by the time it came for M, school had started 10 minutes earlier! The first week is always a little crazy and both girls got home more than an hour after school let out yesterday which is nuts since their schools are about a 3 minute drive away. Oh well, I had plenty of time to take my pic for today while we waited!

Day 208

First day of school...

First off was M who was feeling a little bit apprehensive about her first day at the big school. Daddy took her in the cool car and she went straight to her locker and opened it with no problem at all! I think she'll do great this year!
Next up was L. C and I took her and she was raring to go, ready and at the door about 20 minutes before we needed to leave!
She found her desk and went right to coloring.
And finally, we left straigh from L's school to take C who has been begging to go to school since his meet-the-teacher last week.
Instead of having me wait with him, he wanted to go and sit with his friends from the car line. He informed me that tomorrow he would be in the car line too and I didn't need to walk with him. whaaaah :(

Day 207

Ice cream...

This evening we met Granny & Chippy for ice cream. It was supposed to be all of us, but M was with one of her friends and C was still cleaning his room. R came instead and I brought my camera to get today's pic.
The only problem was, by the time I got my camera out, they were already finished!! I have never seen ice cream go so fast!

Ahh, that ice cream hit the spot!

Day 206

Hair & nails...

Today was a day of beauty for the girls. M had her highlights redone which were much lighter this time around since the sun had bleached them all summer.

And in an effort to help her with her nail biting, mom relented and let her get acrylic nails. Ugh...she is growing up way too fast.

Day 205

Such a pretty girl...

L had her meet-the-teacher this afternoon and she was totally co-ordinated from head to toe. We had 90 minutes to get her bathed and dressed, complete with making a bracelet for her outfit to be "perfect." She even had matching flip-flops, life doesn't get any better than that!
Unfortunately, none of her friends from last year made it into her class this year so she was a little bummed about that. We told her that only meant that she had a whole new crop of friends to make!

Day 204


I am beginning to think they can be as bad a girls. One minute, they're the best of friends. The next...
someone is crying, this time it was C. Wonder what came between them? A GIRL...what else? Which girl? L, of course! Sheesh.

Day 203

A new friend...

This is A and today is his 3rd birthday. Mom hired me to come out and take some pictures of him...being...well, him! He was a doll with a such sweet little smile.

There's that sweet smile.
Just look at those lashes! I love 'em!

Day 202

Shopping for T...

After years of printed funny tees, T decided it was time for a change so we went to the mall today and picked some stuff out for him.

Wonder what he'll think...

Day 201

Fun at the park...

Lots of pics today! I had to drive up to The Woodlands to check out the light for a session Wednesday morning and the kids were so good that I stopped off at the park on the way home. We stayed for an hour and then had to go potty so we stopped in to see Chippy!

Day 200

Late night treat...

T & I always have our ice cream while we watch Jay or read before bed. Terrible for the waistline, but traditions shouldn't be sacrificed for a pant size...right?

YUM! Dryer's Butterfinger Loaded...*drool*. This is the best ice cream EVER!

Day 199


I sat on the couch this afternoon reading my book and I felt a little lump on my lap. I moved my book to see and this is the face that was looking up at me. I grabbed my camera because I wanted to remember those eyes. I felt tears instantly, because I could see the the same emotion I see when his father looks at I love my life.

Day 198

The Locker...

We were up bright & early this morning to go to M's new school to get her books, homeroom and the all too important...LOCKER! We have been shopping for stuff for it all summer and she finally got to load it all in. We stayed and practiced the combination for a bit too.

Of course, the little girl above her and to the right had some different stuff so we had to go out and get that too...girls! So, this still isn't the finished product, but its a sneak peek at least!

Day 197


Tropical depression, Erin paid us a visit today so we were stuck inside all day. I sneaked out while there was a break in the rain to grab a few shots for today.

Day 196

So cool!...

I got this dry erase board in today for T's "office" and it is fabulous! It even has magnets on the back to hang it on the fridge. I think this may be one of my all time favorite pics of C. I also got the magnets in and they are so cute! M loved them and we can't wait to put them in her locker on Friday. I will post some pics when we do.

Day 195

Me & Mini-T

The girls both went off to see their girlfriends today and I ended up having to cancel my nail appointment due to some traffic delays. So, I needed a hug..or two.

My sweet boy was more than happy to give me a few and that made it all better! So here I am, no make-up, warts...errr..crowsfeet & all with my mini -T. SHEESH! Look at those roots! Good thing I have an appointment to have those seen!
