Happy Birthday Ben Weaver!

01.30.08 Uncategorized


Today was Ben Weaver’s 4th birthday, i can’t even believe it… i still remember us all in the pool with our little ones and he was asleep in his mommy’s arms! (18 mos old) and now here he is, all grown up and Mommy weaver has a 2 and a 4 year old! You are so old (ha ha ha, just kidding!) Since I’m feeling nostalgic, I’m adding a pics of the rest of us from the playgroup after swim class…Look at my lil Gabby, makes me miss her littleness!

Anyways on the way home from Ben’s bday party Gabby was checking out her loot (the goody bag), her and Alyssa got their own… here is the conversation we had

G: Mom, Alyssa says she doesn’t want her monkey
Mom: Okay
G: I asked Alyssa and she doesn’t want her white raisins, I’m going to put them in my bag…
M: Okay
G: Alyssa told me she doesn’t want her stickers…
M: OKay Gabby, you can have it all if you need to…

Can you tell i was in a “whatever mood” 🙂 Today has been really off for me, i usually have a present wrapped weeks ahead of time and perfectly wrapped… I’m just feeling really off… I even forgot my camera to go to Ben’s party…

Portrait Party!!

The portrait party was alot of fun, but i was tired by the end, i bet Jen was totally exhausted! She has a few pics from the party on her blog… They are so good, I know people think its alot of $ to hire a photographer to come out and take pictures of your kids, but in my mind, it is worth every penny.. You cant go back and rewind time, and like i thought about my wedding, that is the only thing you have left when your kids are all grown up…

anyways, i snuck in 🙂 to take a few practice shots with Jen’s background of Alyssa while she was outside shooting pics… i definitely need a new lens and flash, so these were a real mess cause i didn’t have enough light, but i worked it out and really like these few, i had to b/w one to even make them work… what do u think 🙂

Testing the light…

Tomorrow afternoon I’m having a portrait party by Jen Baltgalvis photography, I’m so excited!

Jen came over on Thursday to do some test shots… Look at the bruise on Gabby’s forehead, she fell into the corner of the stereo speaker, OUCH! it looks worse and worse, cant wait for it to go away!

PS just so you don’t think I’ve excelled at my photography, Jen took these…

Bumper washing day…

Today we decided it was time to wash Gabby’s bumper, it was gross, so in it went to the washer… Gabby begged me to let her sit and watch it dry… Thought it was funny she wanted to sit in a basement so she could be closer to the bumper…

Too Quiet…

In this house, you know there is something disturbing about quiet… you know the kind of quiet that can only happen when your child is up to no good…

This afternoon i went up to see what Gabby was up to after i thought, wow she is playing so nicely in her room… uh oh, i better go check on her… and then i open the door and she quickly scurries out the door…. “Gabby what did you do…” “Nothing”… after some investigation, i found the kitchen scissors in her bed…

“Gabby what did you cut… Did you cut your bumper”,

“NO”

” What did you cut?…”

I cut my hair…

GASP!!!

We now have an appt for an emergency intervention with her hairstylist Wendy tomorrow at 1… Pray she can work miracles!
