Day 232-Day 238

Well I think this might have been one of my worst 365 weeks to date. I took picture everyday, but just barely.. and often just with my phone. But I have been spending the days editing pictures from 3 different photo shoots, so I think by the time I was done with those my creative photo brain was just done. But though they might not be beautiful shots, they still are my shots and they tell my life. So with that great intro, here is this last weeks pictures.

Day 232

Hey look it's me!
Dress shopping for my little sister's wedding in October.

Day 234

Can you tell what it is?
It's a clear bag of marbles.
The ones I use for the marble jars-
i.e. the way I get my kids to behave.

Monday, August 23rd
Monday nights are family night.
The boys looked really cute together
I just hurried and took a picture-flash shadows and all.

Day 218-Day 224

Day 218
Friday, August 6thWe went out to the high desert for a weekend getaway.
Lots of swimming and lots of fun.
And yes, there are two pictures here.
But well, I really liked them both and it's my blog, so get over it enjoy!

Day 219

Not only did we spend the weekend swimming and having fun,
but Lourie of CA girl and her family (oldest daughter here) joined us for the weekend.
Kristen is under the water in this picture.

Day 220
Sunday, August 8th
On the way back from the high desert you see lots and lots of these.
This is just 1/4 of them at best.
And not a bad shot from my iPhone while speeding down the highway
(and no- I was not driving)

Day 221

A little bit of Lightroom magic and the everyday ordinary becomes extraordinary.

Day 222
Tuesday, August 10th
This was taken in the wee hours of the night, or morning.
You have to look carefully, but see all of that bed to the left of Eric...
yes, I am there on the bed to the right of him.
My proof that he really does hog the bed.
And yes he might have gotten a little kick shortly after this picture.

Day 223
Wednesday, August 11th
Getting ready to go to his first day of kindergarten!
You can read about how it went here.

Day 224
Thursday, August 12th
This evil working of the devil is called a two-bite cupcake.
And yes, it really is two bites... just enough to make you want more.
And since they are just two bites, they are so easy to sneak when the kids aren't watching.
Darn two-bites

Ask Alex.

Day 214

Horrible picture... but look at Lucas' floor.
All picked up. And I didn't do it.
In fact, I didn't even ask him to do it.
He went up to his room, worked for about 45 minutes and did it all one his own.
Yes, this needed to be documented.

Day 215

Baby feet are cute, baby hands are cute
and so are baby ears.

WTH?? Am I really going to have two redheads?

well it takes you out.

Wow, Alex has made it into a lot of my pictures this week.
She does like holding her brother, for about two minutes, then she is done.
