What I Spent My Day Doing....

This could become a problem, I am starting to get addicted to this. I am trying my hand at making templates for photographers, hopefully I can eventually sell them.

One of my favorite things about our new neighborhood

I get to take this little guys pictures whenever I want to. He was a total rockstar, and slept the entire time, even through diaper changes and posing changes. I love to snuggle up with him any time we're out in the "hood", so it was such a joy to take his pics.

A couple from yesterday's newborn session

I am on a newborn role, I had one yesterday, and one today, then I get to take my little great-nephew's next week. Yes you read right, I am a great aunt, doesn't that make me sound old? These were great fun to do, I love little baby pics and mom was worried we wouldn't get any of the two together, but I think they turned out great.

This Looks Amazing...A Must See!

I found this link on a blog I frequent I would love to see it. Who Does She Think She Is? I'm sure in the small part of the world where I live, I will have to wait for dvd, but it will be worth it. It spoke to me, as I'm sure it will many women, especially mothers.

A fun little time waster.....

I found this on a blog that I frequent, and who would of thought you could turn words into art?? I love it, I took one of my poems and it created this little word cloud, they call it wordle.
...I would have killed to have something like this in high school or college for my English classes.

And Then There Was One.....

The older kids are back in school. Ben doesn't go until next month, which isn't far away, but it still gets a little lonely for him here. He certainly misses his big brother while he's at school. Even the dogs seem to not know what to do, other than lick the peanut butter off Ben's face.

Playing In Colorado!!!

I am enjoying the cool weather in Colorado this week, taking my niece's Senior pictures and hanging out with her family. It has been a wonderful week away from my family and all the unpacking and painting and other stuff that goes with new house ownership. The timing of my trip could have been better, but I didn't expect to sell our house the week before I left. The weather could be better, it has been raining all day, and very cold, I actually had to go buy an outfit because it is so cold here. While I am enjoying the time away, I am looking forward to getting back home to my fam, and the new house stuff. I thankfully got one day of picture taking in before the rain started, so here's a little peek at my first senior session.

Frogs and Toads

Did I mention we live on some sort of frog/toad breeding ground. I mean seriously when you step outside at night you actually risk stepping on them. They are cute and tiny and a varied species, sometimes reddish orange, sometimes gray like this little tree frog that made it inside the trampoline this morning.

Before and After

I worked on a little project this weekend, and it is basically done. I painted my dresser set in our bedroom, it is so awesome, they look brand new. It kind of makes me want to paint everything, it was so fun and easy. Now if we could just get the smaller pulls put on it would be finished.

Outside Fun!!!

We got a trampoline yesterday, they are so much fun! I'm not sure who had more fun, the kids or Andrew and I. Not fun to put together, though. Thankfully we have nice neighbors, cause I don't think I would have been much help by myself. The kids had a blast, though, and of course we turned on the sprinkler, as well and that makes it even more fun. You'll have to excuse the blur, I haven't quite gotten the timing right on taking pics of kids jumping. And just so you know that is not a cowboy hat on my son, it's "Indiana Jones" hat.

Finally Moved In!!!!

We've officially moved in! Most of our boxed are unpacked, and there are even some pictures hanging. I did lose a box in the move, though, I'm pretty sure. I putting up a few pics, maybe I'll get some more at a later date, these are just a few I snapped today, some of my favorite places.
