My Jewelry Collection

We have a weekly theme on a photography board I'm on and the last one was jewelry, so I pulled out some jewelry and took some pictures this morning.

This bracelet was a birthday gift from Susan.

This is the necklace that John gave me when Katie was born.

Happy Birthday Aaron!

Happy Birthday Aaron... a day late!
Just a collage I made of Aaron with some of his senior pics. I think I need to edit it a little more, something just isn't right.
Anyway I can't believe Aaron is 18! That doesn't make me old, does it?

There's a Little Girl In Our Neighborhood...

If you are a John Anderson fan I know you are singing the whole song now!

I've posted a lot of Katie lately, so today I thought I would focus on Charlotte. She is just a little harder to take pictures of, cause you can't bribe her with candy.

I love these pictures of her on the swing! I wanted to make a collage of them, but I'm not sure if I like how this one came out. I've never seen her swing like this before, she is usually in the baby swing. She must have watched Katie do it.

"Little Charlotte she's as pretty
As the angels when they sing..."

Yep, this was the end result after I said about a million times "Charlotte be careful you are going to flip over!" Flipped right over and landed on her face! I know I'm a mean mother and took a picture before I picked her up. In my defense my camera is really fast! Especially outside when you don't need the flash. She was fine! Didn't even cry a full minute!

Princess Katie

Just another practice session with the window light. I tried to get some of Charlotte but she really doesn't like to model for me. Katie agreed to model if she could take some of the pictures, she is such a little negotiator.

Happy Birthday Jacki!

We hope you are having a super great birthday Jacki!

Learning Experience

Trying to play with some window lighting in our living room. Katie was a great model! I'm hoping to take some more tomorrow, maybe I'll even get a couple of Charlotte.

I Love My Aunt Linda!

I'm so proud of my Aunt Linda for embracing the high tech world with open arms! She just sent me an email with her first picture attachment! This is the picture isn't it beautiful?
Here is the same picture after I converted it to black and white, I couldn't help myself!

The Grocery Game

Last week I started doing the grocery game again and thought I did awesome by saving 41% or $67! This week I did even better! That's right, I saved $107! 45% Yippee!
Gotta love that Sooper Card!
Here is the link to the Grocery Game site:
If you sign up let them know I referred you and I think I get a little discount.
There is also a free one called The Coupon Mom, but I haven't tried it out.

The Joy of a Baby Sister!

I thought this picture was funny, because this is kind of Katie's life now. Charlotte ruins everything! Poor Katie, being a big sister is tough! They are either playing and laughing hysterically or fighting, there doesn't seem to be anything in between.

I was at my Aunt Linda's house yesterday and had to take a picture of the progress my very talented Aunt Gail has made on the mural she is painting in the living room. Doesn't it look awesome? My Aunt Gail is an incredible artist and one of the smartest people I've ever met, and I've met some pretty smart people! I should have taken some close ups of the horses on the bottom, I will next time!

Happy Birthday Melissa!

In honor of Melissa's birthday... which was last week, again very sorry Melissa, I will be posting some pics in an effort to kiss up a little.
Here is one of us before a big night out on the town..... he he he! Like you can't tell what this is from!


I have a lot of stuff I need to be doing, which always results in procrastination and wasting time playing with Photoshop. I tried to take some pictures of Charlotte this weekend, but it didn't go great. I liked the sun flare in this one and the fact that she left her cute little hat on for a while, even though her ear looks kind of funny.
