I like the word Extravaganza lately... like the Review Extravaganza on my blog, you can read about it here.
Today we went and saw this insanely awesome house in our town, or houses as the light display includes three houses that sync with the music and is just so cool! The main house is literally wrapped with lights. I had to add a couple of pictures just so you could get the bigger picture.
Okay-well I didn't actually take a picture this day... but I did spend the day with pictures. I was compiling my sister's bridal album. So here is one of the pictures I was working with and starring at all day long. Something about spending a day editing usually results in no new pictures.
I have so many pictures I have taken that I love...
the thing I have not been good about is displaying them I am slowly trying to change my ways I am about to order a bunch of huge pictures from the photo shoot I did of my kids. You can see some of the pictures here.
Ryder's favorite food seems to be bananas... well and his bib of course. Which he tries to eat by pulling it up over his face every time I feed him. Which results in food all over his face. Today's food, peas.
Friday, October 8th A special day- this guy turned 6 today!
Day 283 Saturday, October 9th The cake I made for Lucas' birthday party Airplanes are his latest thing

Day 285 Monday, October 11th Ryder and I went along to Alex's preschool field trip, a trip to the pumpkin patch. Ryder doesn't seem nearly as impressed as Alex.
Day 286 Tuesday, October 12th Packages in the mail with things like this are good.
Day 287 Wednesday, October 13th I actually took a ton of pictures today.. but I was doing a photo job- and the client was having their picture taken for a surprise for family. So here are some pretty flowers that we took a few pictures in front of, the sun light was magical in this location.
Day 288 Thursday, October 14th Yeah, the picture speaks for itself. I giggle every time I see it.
Friday, September 24thIt's been hot-I let them play in the water again. I think they had fun
Day 269 Saturday, September 25th It was really dark when we left the party. So dark I couldn't see the kids in the back So when I lifted up my phone and took a picture I had no idea what I was going to get. Too bad my hand was covering the lens a bit.
Day 270 Sunday, September 26th We take a multi-vitamin and calcium at night.. it was late, I hadn't taken a picture- I was taking a picture of the bottles; Eric dared me to take a picture of him "like this"... I complied. And well he is 15" taller than me so this angle really is my usual view.
Day 271 Monday, September 27th End of September... wrong, wrong, wrong wrong Oh and our upstairs AC stopped working the day before.
Day 272 Tuesday, September 28th Waiting in the car pool lane is fun to do.. fun to do, to do, to do. Not!
Day 273 Wednesday, September 29th After three days of suffering our AC was fixed! The compressor blew up. Doh!
Day 274 Thursday, September 30th Rain in the day makes sunsets that make me say Yeah! This image is SOOC.
Friday, September 17th Something so fun about playing with the hose and squirting the screen glass door. I took this picture from the safety of inside.
Day 261 Saturday, September 18th Work Saturday for Eric, so we went took lunch out to him. I blurred out the hospital name
Day 262 Sunday, September 19th As beautiful as roses are, they never last forever. Day 263 Monday, September 20th Alex "reading" in her fort. And yes Kristen, that is your book, we will bring it back on Saturday.
Day 264 Tuesday, September 21st Did you know they have homework in kindergarten now? It often involves a lot of coloring.. which Lucas quickly tires of. But if I grab a coloring book and color alongside him, it makes it so much better.
Day 265 Wednesday, September 22nd Yes he is adorable.
Day 267 Thursday, September 23rd Lately I haven't taken nearly enough pictures of this cute guy.. and he is the one that actually poses for me.
Well I didn't post daily, but I actually put more time and thought into most of my pictures this week. And I didn't miss a day!
Day 253 Friday, September 10thOh to have hair like that.. sigh. I <3 my daughter's hair.
Day 254 Saturday, September 11th We celebrated this awesome lady's birthday today, though it was actually the week before. And yeah she might be a decade older than me, but she is one of my best friends.
Day 255 Sunday, September 12th "I got wet trying to clean my shoes" "Well you are already wet you might as well play in the water." And I was suddenly the coolest mom on the planet. Sometimes it really is good to just say yes.
Day 256 Monday, September 13th My cute boy is four months old! Well, technically he turned four months on the 14th, but I did one of his photo shoots a day early.
Day 257 Tuesday, September 14thI was taking Ryder's monthly picture and Alex said 'take a picture with me too!' My girl who lately runs away from the camera jumped in for many shots and was instructing me on what pictures to take. I didn't object.
You can see more pictures from Ryder's photo shoot here.
Day 258 Wednesday, September 15th This bad day was made so much better by this. Cherry Limeade, breakfast toaster.. oh yeah!
Day 259 Thursday, September 16thFor a boy who a few months ago wrote in all caps and would hardly sit still, this makes me happy. He did write the word is, I just cut it off in the picture, opps :)
I hardly feel like I should post this week... I missed a day again... I really just think I have gotten burned on the 365 thing... but I will keep going. Maybe if I went back to posting daily I would be more accountable. There are some days were I take a ton of pictures and then I just don't take anything. I think next year I will keep posting pictures, but going to do things a little different than just the 365.
Day 246 Friday, September 3rd I have been trying to get a video of him smiling and "talking" I accidentally had my phone on picture mode and got a picture...
Day 247 Saturday, September 4thGame Day! And a great present from my in-laws
Day 248 Sunday, September 5thWe blessed Ryder at church today. And I did take this picture, used my tripod and remote.
Day 249 Monday, September 6th Eric's parents came into town for the weekend. We spent part of Labor day at the Air force museum. I love this picture of Eric and his dad, and Alex.
Day 250 Tuesday, September 7thWe were the smart ones. Just ask the tour bus driver, she will confirm it. We went to the zoo the day after Labor Day.
Day 251 Wednesday, September 8th mmmm... yeah great picture today huh?
Day 252 Thursday, September 9thWe are an Apple family to the core. (core haha get it) I should have thrown my iPad in the picture too.
The first year I did a 365- I was semi successful.
Last year I had all of these ideas about editing pictures and teaching you how.
This year it is for me.
It will be a 365, well 366, of sorts but I like to call it my 366 Journal. As it will be my place to document those little things. Every day life that I want to remember but might not be very good blog fodder. But it is for me.
I'm a determined procrastinator who gets it done. I don't excel at any one thing but am pretty dang good at a lot of things. I am a glass-half-full kind of gal even when the glass is nearly empty. I am a mom, a photographer, a wife, a creator, a couponer, a friend, a musician, an Apple fanatic, a BYU football fan and numberless other things that people have called me both good and bad. But ultimately it is my knowledge of who I truly am, a daughter of God, that helps me make it through this crazy life One Day At a Time.
