you could start calling this *Photo of the week*. LOL. Getting the final things done so I can officially say I am portfolio building again, so in the mean time, I am slowly collecting fun things.
Found some pettiskirts cheap and bought a few. I attempted to make one last year...it just got to be too time consuming. I would love to finish it...someday.
Just a quick shot of Charley modeling it. We are tearing apart our living room, dining room and kitchen sooo the background isn't the greatest. AH well

Alison gets a monthly subscription to the *Strawberry Shortcake bookclub*. (I have a book fetish) It is pretty cool. Every month along with a new book, she gets a craft that goes with the theme of the book. This month was "Honey Pie Pony's Book". So, she got a bunch of cutout cardboard shapes that stand on their own. Along with some fences links to keep them in. What impressed me the most was while I was doing dishes earlier, she decided to draw a background for them all! The big red box is a barn and the rest is the pasture. How cool is that?? She gave her ponies a nice home! I just love her bunches. '
Hope everyone is having a great night.

I am loving it. 70 degree weather can stick around for as long as it wants! Unfortunately, after tomorrow the weather is going to drop back down into the 50s with rain and will pretty much stay there til mid-week. BLECH! So, we are enjoying the beauteous weather while it lasts!!
Charlotte and I hung out on my bench swing (the one I thought broke after our tree fell on it) for a little bit. She was enjoying it so much. He chomped on her fingers a little bit and chatted with her toes...LOL..then went ahead and chomped on them to. BWAHAH. I just thought this was a cute photo. This is sooo her...always has her tonue hanging out with a smile on top of it all. HAH. A shame the background is so messy, darn cushions! BUT I still love it!
I have to get more pics of the kids and other things up here. Charlotte is dominating my blog. LOL! I cant' help it, it is mostly me and her, the other kids are off playing on their own. I gotta make a point to snatch them up...and they will do it kicking and screaming. HAHA HA.

Oh I so hope so! LOL. My great grandmother was a redhead..auburn to be exact. All my kids had a reddish tint to their hair when they were born but it got lighter the older they got. Charlotte's hair doesn't seem to be changing at all. So I am hoping it stays...I love it! Of course if it changes, you still gotta love her :) Nothing exciting about the photo, just my sweet little Charley and I just cant' believe how reddish her hair is!
I woke up early today to hang out with the kids outside because it was just too gorgeous NOT TOO! So I let Charley hang out on the blanket, she was in awe of it all. I let her free. LOL!! I go back in to work tonight but only work til 1am so I hope I can catch up on some sleep!
have a great night everyone!

I bought this wooden baseball glove at a local craft show when I was pregnant with Chase. I was going to do a sports theme in his room and it was perfect! It holds a glove, a ball and a bat. It is really cute and just recently we put it up on his room. Of course the bat is put up because Chase brings new meaning to the phrase "beat you with a baseball bat" LOL!! He has expressed a huge interest in baseball and I am so super excited because I LOVE baseball! I can't wait to see him play and just go out and have fun. The weather is going to be nice the next few days (I unfortunately will be working a few of them) so he will be out there having fun!! I just had a vision in my head when I was in his room earlier...me just dreaming about seeing him play! It was weird and silly but I had to take a picture and journal up my thoughts and emotions! As you can see the ball gets much use already! I think it is awesome!!
It was early in the day, not much light coming in so I cranked up the ISO, opened up the aperature and slowed the shutter. LOL...made for a great effect I think :) I want to play with it some more and maybe antique it up a little bit more.
Have a great day!

I am so disappointed in myself. It was a busy weekend with Chase's party and all, which was BLAST by the way! I really enjoyed myself, dont' know about everyone else. LOL! It was great because we ordered pizza instead of us cooking and well WHAT a difference! I could actually enjoy the party. NICE! Here are the pics if anyone wants to see them :)
As always, click the picture to see a bigger, clearer version!
Todays pic is of Charlotte. She is 7 months and 1 days today. I can hardly believe. She is so long and slender! She faught me taking these pix so I really only got one shot of her! I am gonna try again and while I am at it, I have got to practice working on CWB with my D200 because I have been getting no so friendly casts on my photographs lately. No fun!!
Hope you are all having a great week. I work tomorrow and the next night so I might not be able to post, but I really want to..soooo.

I just want to apologize for not posting anything lately. Charlotte--my sweet little baby Charlotte has turned into a nighttime demon! She went from sleeping 12 hours straight to getting up non stop. Not sure what is up...possibly a growth spurt or just normal 6-7 month regression..THE STINKER! NO clue! So, understandably, I am exhausted. I want nothing more to do then just sit on my lazy butt...LOL and veg!! Unfortunately, I have a fiesty almost 2 year old who keeps me moving. I worked the last few nights so I have had very little sleep on top of it all *CUE THE VIOLINS* now please! LOL. I am really not complaining just making up an excuse as to why i haven't touched my pretty camera lately. BUT--i have a whole week off AND Chase's birthday party is Saturday so I have NO excuses!!
Oh yeh so what am I still doing up, now that the kids have gone to bed? WELLLL, working night shift plays lovely tricks on you sometimes.

The birdies were enjoying a nice afternoon in my backyard trees. It WAS nice and warm and the sun was peaking through the clouds. An hour later, the gray has taken over and the temps dropped some. BAH! Can't wait for Spring to really make it's presence!! Working tonight so I had to post early. Have a good night.

Kinda creepy eh?? We took a walk earlier this afternoon and we seem to spot a few of these faces in the tree. Holly is always fascinated by them. This one is making a face at us!!
The sun was extra harsh today, but it was still chilly out! The kids had fun and it ws nice to get outside for a little bit. :)

Started to stock up on some babyfood for Charlotte. Made some peas (you may know are my most favorite :) ) and thought I would snap some pics before I put them away. :) She is finally starting to get use to the whole eating solids deal and is actually turning into a little piggy. LOL!!
Have a good night!
