FINALLY!! The Elusive Sweet Shot Captured!!

For the past two years a chipmunk has been teasing me with cuteness that I was, until now, unable to capture. I tried everything. Sneaking up on it, zoom lens and trying to snap a picture from a mile away, begging it to "just sit still for a second!!". Nothing. For TWO years! Then, the other day I got lucky. This little creature just loves my tiny pot and hangs out in it all the time......

I love it. Now, if only it will let me hold it, squeeze it and kiss it I'll be happy. But for now, this will do. :)

Is She 4 YET?!?!

It's no secret that I kinda don't like the 2's, but we all know how I feel about the 3's. I despise them. I wish I could skip that age completely. At 2 they don't really understand yet and they're pushing boundaries, talking back and the dreaded "MINE!!!" phase. And then they turn 3 and all Hell breaks loose. It's exhausting. Lo has reached the 3's early. I don't even know what to do or say to her at times. I've had to threaten her with spankings! Thankfully just the threat is enough.....for now. I'm still holding out hope that she will be different than my other 2, but I doubt it. I'm not that lucky. I was lucky that she was a delightful baby that slept well, ate well and never cried. I was also kind of lucky that she was delayed in the crawling/walking phase. I couldn't imagine having 2 crazy children running around the house at the same time. Lex was plenty!! But I'm paying for it now. She's a hellion!! But a super cute hellion.....

Have I mentioned how happy I am that spring break is over and Lex is back in school? No? Well I am!!! They exhausted me last week!!!! :)

Long Time No Post!!

Let me start off by saying this.....we are all done teething in this house! HALLELUJAH!! Ever since Lo was born I've been looking forward to this day. It's a wonderful feeling. ((sigh)) So anyways. Lots of exciting things going on around here. I have my first wedding shoot 2 weeks ago. And yes, I'm still editing the pictures. Where do pros find the time?!?! Geesh. It was my bestfriend's wedding. She's 4 months pregnant and the happiest she's ever been. It's a beautiful thing. Here are some pictures I edited on the iPad using instagram......

Those are some of my favorites. :) I have soooo many more to edit. I'm just trying to fit everything into 24 hours and it's just not working. I need more hours, a maid and a Nanny. Or a Manny. A male Nanny would be nice. ;)

Lex is enrolled and all ready for Kindergarten!! Boy, how did that happen so fast?! I miss my little boy. :( It's so bittersweet. He's is super excited. He wants to take the bus to school, but I'll be damned!! HAH! There is no way I'm putting my baby on a bus!! :) Middle school? Sure! He's talking about maybe letting me cut his hair just a tiny bit. I seriously doubt that. :) I'm hopeful I'll get an inch off. It's sooooo long! He will make Locks Of Love very happy when he does cut it. 

My husband and I forgot our 10 year anniversary. How do you forget something like that?! We're dorks. I think we're going to go back to Gatlinburg in July for a mini family vacation. That will be our gift to each other. HAH! Kevin also committed us to a 5 day stay at a Hilton in Florida, which we have to book in the next few weeks. o_O The Hilton called and offered us a villa right outside of Disney for 5 days for o nly $175. Can't beat that price! It's a 3 bedroom villa which means I can cook all our meals and save on that at least! We're still planning it though. Worse case scenario is we lose the $175 if we decide we just can't do it. We're going to shoot for September. Lex and Raven will only lose 1 or 2 days of school and it's the beginning of the year. Not too bad. We already started saving for both vacations. We're insane. And we may be broke come October. HAH!!!! Oh well. ;)

That's about it. Nothing exciting. I haven't had the time or the heart for blogging lately. Hopefully I can keep up again real soon.
