Christmas . . .

Okay . . . so I know that the holiday season is almost over with the New Year ending in a couple of days, but I thought that I would share some "Christmas Cheer" with you all! Here are the girls and I "happily" going to see Santa . . . Yes, that is Sophia desperately trying to squirm away from the "wicked" man in a beard . . . and yes that is Emma whispering, "Why in the heck are you subjecting us to such cruelty . . . especially since all I really want is a JACK IN THE BOX?!!"

Here I am . . .calm, cool, and collected . . . thinking . . . where is my egg nog, when is the photographer going to say "cheese" or something?!

And here I am looking at my mom thinking . . . I'm so glad she's here so that everyone can say . . . wow . . . that grandma is really lucky to have two beautiful red-headed screaming grandkids!!
The best thing about the whole experience was in the car when my mom asked Em what she asked Santa for Christmas . . . Em replied that she was really worried because all she could do was cry so she didn't know what he was going to bring!! Funny!! I'll upload more photos of the holiday Forced Family Fun!!

Here's your pics Auntie Monica . . .

Argh . . . It seems like forever since I have posted pictures! Sorry. But here are some fab pics of our Halloween fun! This year we . . . well actually I . . . decided that we should really get into the Halloween spirit . . . Emma wanted to be a beautiful butterfly and Soph had no choice but to be a lovely ladybug . . .with that nature theme going on I decided I would be Mother Nature and Patrick could be Father Time . . .

okay there seems to be some technical difficulties occurring so I will try and upload the photos in a little while!

A Trip to the ZOO . . .

My insane parents took us where {Zoo Boise} to see what {it was reptile days!!}? Yes, Auntie Monica there were even 3 snakes out of their cages!! It was crazy . . .
Em didn't really seem to have a good time there except for when she was going down the slide {above pic & of course, below pic}, watching the meerkats & lemurs, or riding on the carousel!!

Sophia wasn't quite as relaxed on the carousel as her sister . . . hmm . . . I guess stranger things have happened!!
After the zoo trip, we dined here:
Unfortunately when we got there someone was dining in the car {darn it} and the only thing that they were serving was breakfast . . . we would like to go back to dine in the car and try their other food . . .

The girls finally smiling and having a good time!!Playing around in the parking lot . . . you know we had to do that after dining on trail trash cuisine!!
All in all, it was an alright day . . . wished the girls would have been in better moods though!? Maybe next time?

My baby had her 1st day of School . . .

Here she is in her first day outfit . . . complete with backpack and apparently needing to hold on to a measuring tape . . . I swear that girls loves numbers!!
A close of the newly big girl who promptly told me that she would NOT be eating her muffins and she didn't care if she went to preschool or not! Then I threw in "No Nana" and her tune quickly changed!
Her new back pack that she picked out all by herself. Inside: a copy of her birth cert., her check for tuition, bubble gum lip gloss, KNUFFLE BUNNY TOO {her new book from Auntie Monica}, and a package of kleenex . . . she has allergies . . .MONSTER ALLERGIES!!
Painting with Shelby. She's so happy to be at school. She wanted us to go back after dinner!
Bently, Em, & Shelby . . . a trio of friends . . . how scared the teachers must be!!
Talking to a stranger . . . what a big step she had today. I'm so proud of her!! I actually get to take her to school tomorrow! I can't wait! She's so happy about it . . . I was so worried she wouldn't have fun because she is so shy at home. . .I'm so proud of her . . . although I think I already mentioned that!! Have a great Wednesday!!

Creative Bug

I've been a scrap binge this weekend . . . the above picture is one of my favorites that I've taken of my sunflowers . . . below is a layout of the two squirrels . . . I love how Sophia has a gigantic smile under the pacifier!!
This one is a new layout that I tried out . . . I generally don't use my photo corner rounder . . . I I used it numerous times on this layout!
This one is a smattering of pics from Tacoma when I visited Monica . . .
This one is actually a two page spread of Sophinator . . . I couldn't stand up the last one because of the weight of the buttons . . .
Thanks so much for looking. . . I'm also working on a book of favorite photos . . . I'll post pics when it's finished!! Happy Labor Day!

Saturday Morning . . . after a week of work!!

Good morning to you all . . . wow . . . what a week it has been. My first week back at work. The girls' first visit to Mari's house. Marcy's Gramp's funeral. A kiddo rushing up to me during math to tell me thanks for teaching math today. My parents rockin' out in Lost Wages. Patrick and I staying up way too late last night watching "Weeds". Getting our first DVDs via NetFlix in the mail.
Here is a layout that I worked on . . . it's pretty simple . . . I love the yawning picture. Kelisa was so much fun . . .

Here are 3 pictures of the mirror that I got at Graples that I promised a while back . . . better late than never I suppose. I love the swirls at the top and bottom . . . it is so pretty . . . now I just have to figure out how it would go best in my room . . . that is definitely a project for later though . . .

This is a pic of my brave red-headed wonder this morning . . . she and her sis are watching Toy Story 2. This week because my parents are out of town and Patrick started class . . . she had to go to a place that she had visited but never stayed . . . my dear friend Mari's . . . it was pretty funny dropping her off because I expected this great fit to be thrown . . . Em just ran over to the play kitchen and started going to town. Then she looked at me with those big baby blues and said, " Go to work, Mama. Get out of here!" Well . . . okay baby . . . I hope this means that her drop off at preschool will go smoothly!!
And here's little Miss Daredevil herself . . . I don't think she's done much in the climbing of the coffee tables as of late, but her latest trick is to pull herself up onto the couch . . . I guess this means let the couch leaping begin?!
Happy Long Weekend, everyone . . . I hoping to get a lot of "fun stuff" accomplished . . . clean the house, clean out my car, get groceries, look for an adjustable stool for work, and maybe even be creative . . . sounds fun, huh?! I know you're all jealous.
