I took that photo my self... yeah yeah don't break my arm patting my self on the back right?!?! hee hee does it make a difference if i tell you this is the first wedding that I personally shot photos at? Usually i just line people up and stand next to Tim and go get that one get that one...
This was actually a misprint photo... in real life it does not cut off her dress so the framed shots are all either 4x6 5x7 or 8x12... (this one is 8x10) and i decided to scrap it instead of tossing it...
Last Night was J's school Christmas sing-along program... (only all the fourth grade classes prefomed) we figured out when when we seen the gym for the first time coffee cups in hand with big huge signs every where proclaiming no food or drink allowed in the gym! Can you believe i did NOT take the camera?? (me either then I did not regret it until I found they actually turn the lights on at this school so it would have been much easier to get some good shots than it was at the old school) Oh well, maybe next time. Have no idea what they sang, we were not handed a program as we came in the guy was too busy glaring at our coffee mugs... J's class dressed up like cowboys though and they had a small what almost looked like squre dancing to me going on during one of the songs... all the way up until yesterday he kept saying I do not want to go they are going to make us dance really weird... then last night he almost panicked when Tim and I were groaning about having to go back out for it... "I have to go, I'm in the play"... (he had speaking parts infront of the microphone several times.)
Friday we will do our Company Christmas party and so tonight and tomorrow we get to just stay home. YAY. :) All Santa has left to get is a big dog bone or toy and a cat toy and Tims stocking stuffers... (and wrap J's things which we will have free time alone to do on sunday) Then the baking can start... So far Tim has made an angel food cake that he turned into rum balls. But i have not really thought about what i want to do but, i think i will pick out somethings to do with J when he's home from school and i can plan time off next week...
|You Are "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow"|
This is just one of my favorite stores to shop in online... can you believe the sent it Fed-Ex and its here already? (the spooktacular prize giveaway was last friday 10/28) notice they were kind enough to send more coupons hee hee... the wrapper says there are 4 sheets of alpahbets, one sticker sheet , 24 printed paper sheets and some solid color sheets to coordinate... (looks like baby girl ish type colors... not sure what i am going to do with it yet, but still fun to receive)
If you've ever wondered how many candles it takes to boil water, well now i know... Yvonne sent me a funny link to a site that will tell you that, among other things...
so now you know, its not really a cake with candles its a hand warmer...
Look Look, I DID get your cards :) and gifts! and emails and email cards! Yep I do read my e-mail at least once every 24 hours and some days more often not to worry. :) I know some are still coming in the mail and that happens. Dont worry i will holler when i get them. :)
So here's hopping you are having as good of a day as i am.
the hugs and kisses is the first round card i have ever made and the thanks is the second, cant post the third as the person I'm mailing it to reads this blog hee... :)
not much going on today im just really really sleepy & my allergies are kicking my butt. so I am going to sign off and go to bed. I just wanted to say Hey, and thanks for the b-day cards and gifts that have arrived cool stuff to find in the mail box... :)
the oldest girl in the top left corner is Tim's mama. this was taken we think around sept of 1957 as the youngest (danny the baby) was born in august of that year...
Yes, i did do a few others but since i cant remember which ones are in here and which ones are not i will post these and peek at the blog to remember. (yep its that bad already) ;)
This is NOT a normal view in our house, usually he's glued to the boob tube or wanting to play video games...
It's almost amazing that Tim and I grew up without such things ehh?
(school homework... free reading 30 minutes daily) ~ the first day he read one of his books 6 times to make it 30 minutes... then i handed him Harry Potter the next day... so now he's already into the second book... some days he forgets to watch the clock and reads past the 30 minute mark! (others he whines about how bad his eyes hurt and is it time to Quit yet??)
Oh yeah in the quest for the perfect Halloween costume i picked up a witch hat at Wally world that had stars and moons on it, cut the brim off and sewed a black satin blanket binding to the edges and Ta-Da! Its now a Wizard hat! GO MOM! ;)
however i have been informed the cape i picked up is actually a Star-Wars guy cape NOT a HP cape (which should have sleeves) SO, since he has Star-Wars stuff he may end up going that route. (like i have endless patience, time & funds for him to be everything he wants in one night hahahaha...)
This is the left side...
I'm looking forward to getting mine back, I have one more to work in then I should get mine back around Thanksgiving time. I've gotten some e-Mail about the Duck count. Ok Saturday AM shoot resulted in 3 Ducks, 1 very tired Puppy, 1 cold and crabby kid and one very glad he could leave the kid home for the afternoon shoot Husband… So, the Sat afternoon and Sunday am shoots the ducks were too high in the sky to shoot. Finally finished purchasing all the indg. For The BBQ Duck breast wraps… so tomorrow that's what's for dinner (they are marinating now) Our Chickens are officially HENS! We are getting more than a half a dozen eggs per day! Tim is taking them to work and giving them away now we have so many. I'm surprised James is Not clucking for the number he has consumed. I keep muttering pound cake and angel food cake at Tim…
