Just makes you feel good...

I just happened to walk in my daughter's room while she had this pulled up on her laptop - she thought I was crazy because I told her to leave it there while I got my camera. When you see your pictures somewhere else, it just makes you feel good...

Baby Pictures....

I don't take just a whole lot of pictures for people - my schedule is pretty tight just with trying to get my kids to where they are supposed to be everyday. However, I have taken pictures of this baby ever since he was born. I just love him, even though he normally doesn't love me back! :)

We got rhythm!

Me and the kids had an unusual experience today. For an hour we attended a David Scalici "Get Rhythm Program" along with some other friends from Kade's school. I wasn't exactly sure what we were going to but it turned out to be really good. It was fun, interesting and different from our normal activities. If you ever get a chance to go - take it, it will be something your kids will love and never forget! Here's the website if you want to take a look at

So typical....

I just love this picture - it is so typical of my two kids. They love each other - can't you tell??? Just thought it was cute, especially with Valentine's Day (my FAVORITE holiday) around the corner.

Oh yeah...I'm not finished with the remodeling post - just got ran off of the computer by my daughter. Look for more to be added to it later!

Some of my favorite things...

I have been living in an ongoing "project" for 4 years. I have been trying to do some house remodeling...while we also try to live here. Not an easy accomplishment. Our house was pretty rough there for a while. But now, four years later, it's beginning to come together. It has a new roof, new plumbing, new electrical wiring, new hardwood floors in the kitchen and refinished hardwood floors in the den, dining room and hallway, there is no longer a washer, dryer and hot water heater in my's now tucked in it's own little laundry room (shared with my office). Now when I walk through my house, there are things I really like, so of course, I took pictures of them. My kids think I'm nuts, but that's okay - it's been a long hard road, and I deserve to do what I want here. So I'll share. Hopefully, within the next couple of weeks I can take some more, with new countertops and a new island in the kitchen and the trim that has been standing in the corner for about 3 months now put up. Aaahhhhhh...finally....progress.

This is just a couple of corners in my kitchen...but I love them.

Just a cute picture...

I had WK on a table taking Valentine's pictures - however, the dog just would not leave us alone, she kept coming back and jumping and barking. So I picked her up and put her on the table with him. She actually just sat there and posed! She never moved a muscle, except for starting to kiss on Kade - which ended up such a cute picture because of the "LOVE" garland I had on the table!

I really DO scrapbook!

As I was making pictures of what we were doing on New Year's Day - the kids sleeping and me scrapbooking - I realized I never post any of my pages. So I took pictures of the ones I did last night. I've always heard whatever you do on New Year's Day is what you'll do for the entire year. So I purposely am scrapbooking! This year I hope to do more and get caught up - yeah right! I'm YEARS behind!! I'm also going to clean and do laundry today - maybe that will start the year off right and it will stay cleaner this year....however, I think I tried this last year and it just didn't seem to work out. HOPE EVERYONE HAS A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
