Pool…

05.29.08 My Kids

I finally took the girls to my in-laws pool… I wasn’t sure how Alyssa would react since she didn’t even like the bath till a month ago, she LOVED IT even though it was so cold, she kept pushing my hand away and she loved me holding her so she could float on her back looking up…


Gabby has been actually asking me to take pictures of her lately, as odd as that is… so here are a few from us messing around this morning…

Happy Memorial Day!

05.26.08 My Kids

Hope you all are enjoying the long weekend! I know Gabby is, 3 Days with Daddy is awesome… she loves being outside! This morning we went to the Mech. Parade with the Weaver’s and the Baltgalvis’s. Becky Weavers husband is the Marching band director so we went to see his band play and see the mini parade with firetrucks!

Love these of Gabby with daddy’s bandanna on…


Then i tried to recreate a picture that i took of Gabby last year with Alyssa… Im thinking about hanging 2 next to each other…

Taylors…

05.26.08 Families, Kids

Today i did some family portraits for Tiffany’s BFF Kim. We all went to Mech. together…. It was fun seeing her little one, he is 3 months younger then Alyssa but he seems so much older since he is so tall… during the shoot, i asked Kim to look and see if we could sneak in some guys yard to take a picture, we didnt go in, cause at that moment, a snake slithered by… 🙂

thought i would share just one funny one, cause i think he looks freakin cute with this expression on his face…

Self Portrait…

05.25.08 My Kids

Elisabeth mentioned awhile ago, that i should do a self portrait…. YIKES! well here is my attempt… so these are for you E 🙂

also are some pics from tonight…


Here is Gabby sitting in a tree, she has been talking about climbing trees… so i set her in one and took some pics…

My dear sweet Maggie May…

05.24.08 My Kids

Yesterday we got a call from my SIL Dana that her little angel, Maggie broke her leg on the sliding board, she just turned 2. So this morning we rushed thru our oatmeal and were out the door to her house to see her. Gabby wanted to wear her jammies over since Maggie is famous for wearing her jammies all day long… 🙂 Poor Dana. i know how she feels, i have definitely been there. Maggie has a full leg cast that is bright pink, i love the color 🙂 I got the little wicker chair out since i wanted to get a good shot of Maggie in her cast, she was too interested in see-sawing with Gabby, we think she liked it since it was the one thing she could do and not be held! So no great shots of her, but i want to get a good one before it comes off…Hopefully she will only have it on for 3 wks!

Anyways, since Alyssa and lil Sam loved the chair i pulled out, here are a few of them..

Ripped Jeans…

05.22.08 My Kids


After i got Alyssa dressed this morning and i noticed we were both wearing our jeans with ripped out knees… the ones Alyssa was wearing are my favorite hand me down from her cousin Maggie… so i tried to make a mental note to ask Matt to take a pic of her and i together… he didn’t get it right the first time, so i made him try again… im sure he thinks i am crazy…

Irony…

05.22.08 My Kids

Yesterday was Gabby’s end of the year picnic at school, she has her last day tomorrow but it is supposed to be a quiet day to say good bye…. we came in and they sang their songs for the parents. Which is all fine and good, so we are packed in like sardines, because every parent brought not only themselves, but their husband, grandma, nanny etc… and every parent has a video camera in one hand and a still camera in the other, i reach in my bag to grab a shot of Gabby snuggling in with her teacher, Mrs Serina and it wouldn’t take… i look down and i forgot my memory card… UH! I am the mom who ALWAYS documents everything and i missed a big event cause i was too retarded to make sure i had the card in the camera….
Note to self… make sure your battery is charged and camera card is in before a big event!

Ive been practicing shooting in M mode, its hard for me when i am shooting Gabby cause she is constantly moving, so it takes more “attention” to my camera… anyways, that said, i absolutely love these pics of Gabby even though i technically messed up…


Dont leave…

05.22.08 My Kids

Today Gabby and i were outside, and my MIL was leaving, Gabby didn’t want her to go…

Chaos

05.22.08 My Kids

Today Jen and her kids came over. I am actually surprised that Jen keeps hanging with us. Every time we get together our girls, who love each other in theory, fight and whine and cry the whole entire time. I don’t really understand, they are both so different so you would think that would be a good thing, nope, here is a few pics of the chaos 🙂 Cant wait till gabby stops harassing lil Reese… things will be a lot more peaceful then! I am pretty sure i started at least 6 conversations that i never finished… oh well, i guess that is why we email so much!

Amen

05.19.08 My Kids

Tonights prayer by Gabby:

Thank you lord for mommy and daddy
and help Alyssa not to have a red butt AMEN!

made me laugh! Alyssa got a diaper rash today, we think she must be allergic to mango, cause that is the only thing different she had yesterday…
