Day 28 of 365... Getting ready for a portrait session

This is my "studio." The area in my home where I do portraits. I'm so lucky to have an area that I can leave set up! I know it's a little silly, but even just this picture makes me happy. I love photography and I'm so blessed to get to do it!

H. is such a great helper. He loves helping me set up for my photo sessions. And unlike when he was 2, he is actually helpful and the "breaking" of stuff is kept at a minimum.

Day 27 of 365...

Uno. Still a big hit.

Day 18 of 365.... Spookie the Cat

Photo by H.

We love Spookie. It's funny how much her personality has changed since we were first given her almost 5 years ago. Now she actually acts like a cat and acts like she likes us. I had to add in this photo of her. Every Christmas I worry that she is going to knock down the entire tree and break all of my ornaments. You can't tell in the photo but she is almost at the top of the tree. Goofy cat.

Day 17 of 365....The Movies!

We didn't actually go see Alvin and the Chipmunks.. We're waiting for that one to go to the dollar theater. It was still fun to pose by the Chipmunks after seeing another movie

Day 16 of 365.... Sledding!

We had an great day of fun sledding at a nearby "mountain". The best part - We were able to sit back and watch the kids have fun. They are now old enough to handle the sledding on their own. A big bonus is the rope that you attatch your tube to that pulls you up the hill. Easy Peasy!

Day 15 of 365....Kind of.....

Well, I really didn't take these photos on the 15th. Oh Well.

The kids were beyond excited when we went to a much bigger nearby city. We went to the mall and I surprised the kids with a trip to Build a Bear. They used their Christmas money to each get a new stuffed friend.

The Toothbrush ... Day 14 of 365

This is not THE toothbrush. This is a photo of a representative toothbrush. You will understand soon enough.

On this day, D. went to work in a bit of a rush. He had forgotten to brush his teeth, but no worries, he had all the necessary supplies at work. After brushing his teeth he noticed some writing on the tooth brush. "NOT CLEAN" At that point a rush of memories came back and he remembered cleaning something off the bottom of his shoe (likely goat poo) about a year ago. He saved the toothbrush. I'm not sure why. I guess he figured he'd have to do that again sometime. Anyway. He promptly brushed his teeth again with a brand new toothbrush that was also in his drawer at work. He threw the old "not clean" toothbrush away. Thank goodness!

Can you say eeeewwwww? I know I did!
