Hello, Friend

So it's been a while since I have even thought about my blog...oh well, not much I can do about that, besides starting over...Doesn't help that my computer is dead for now, so I am using Kevin's laptop for work. I am really hoping that all of my photos arent gone on the old hard drive. Pax kept turing the comp off and on and it crashed about three weeks ago. My iPhone has been filling the void of being disconnected from everything, and now when he decides to bring it with him, I have Kevin's laptop.

I've been in a discouraged funk lately, and I am trying super hard to shake it off..nothing feels right, things seem to not be going my way, and I am just frusterated and done with it all. Guess I just need to re-focus on things, and stop trying to "try" so hard. I think maybe I am just not cut out for the things I am trying to do. So I have decided that I am just going to let it all go, and do what I want to do. So there...that feels better all ready.

The kids are doing really well, My two older babies are excited about starting school. I went school shopping a couple weeks ago, that was rather expensive. The teachers seem to get really picky. Elaina's stuff was the worst as far as the picky-ness...I was supposed to find a package of only pink, red, and white construction paper. I was like "forget this" and I picked up a large package of regular mulit-colored paper. Her teacher can just pick out whatever colors they need. Sheesh!

Pax is so big now..he's such a little man now. He is really asserting his independence, and is talking up a storm. Cant quite understand what he is saying just yet, but you can make out a few words and phrases.

We are gearing up for our vacation this year. We are going to the beach!!! I am so excited for the kids to get to expierence the ocean, sand, and sea shells. My parents are going to be coming along too, so it will be wonderful time for Kevin and I to go off on our own, and let mom and dad have some time with the kids. YAH! I've been wanting to go to the beach since last year. I am so glad it will finally come to pass!

Take Care All,

Why do they have to grow??

So I decided to get off my lazy fanny and quit making excuses and get outside to take some nice pics of my kiddos.....Don't know why it took me so long to finally do, or why I haven't done it a million times already, cos it is something I have fun doing! This post won't include Elaina, she was at school during the time I was taking these, but I will do some of her in the next couple days and post them.

It was really fun shooting Pax...he was all over the place outside, and I ended up with a million and one shots of his head or little booty or back, and barely any of his face...he was constantly looking at his shadow the whole time trying to catch it. thankfully I was on my game the moment he decided to look at me, and got a few really nice shots of him.
Mimi was a whole different thing..she was squinting in almost every pic, and when I was trying to be stealthy and get a candid shot, she would stop and pose! LOL. I ended up taking her to the back yard after Pax went down for a nap. There I got some wonderful pics of her...she is sooo photogenic and cute!

Looking at them after I finished, I could not believe how much they both have strains my memory to really remember EXACTLY what they were like as makes me sad that they have to grow up, but proud to see what great kids they have become/are becomming. So enjoy the pics!!!

My Baby P

I found this pic in the caves of my computer while looking for a cute hat photo to enter into a sweet baby Paxton...I miss him being so tiny. It seems like he just skipped all the in-between and grew up into the toddling adventurous 19 month old he is now. I am so glad we have photography to keep a record of our most precious memories. I need to take more pics I think!!! I never get tired of looking at them, and I love to spend time remembering precious little moments like this!
