It's that time again!

For the second year, I will be working on a special journal/scrapbook.
I will be among many others in an online group working on the "JYC".
One more thing added to the stressful December list of things to-do?
It is my stress-release.
It is my time I will look forward to at the end of each hectic day.
It is a record that I can look back on and enjoy past memories.
It is a creative outlet.
It is a gift for myself and my family. It all begins on December 1st.
I can hardly wait.
If you'd like to see my 2007 JYC, you can view it here.

Stolen moments

I snagged Lindsay's cf card today and found some photos I thought I'd share.
Joey has been on me for not updating my blog.
Sorry......I don't know what I do with all my free time these days.

Here is Chloe at her friend's birthday party at My Girls.
What are these two laughing at? Do you still wonder where the baby gets those cheeks?

Presley was a pink poodle for her very first Halloween. She preferred the paci over the candy.

What a great big brother Peyton is. He adores his baby sister and she loves him too!

How can a girl be so lucky? Just when you think there's no room left in your heart to love another person unconditionally, along comes another grandbaby. And there's still room for more.
Until next time.....
have a Picture Perfect Day!

Remember this?
Here's the "after" shot.

She was definetly worth the wait.

Happy Happy

Guess who is TWO? Well, technically on the 18th, but we did her birthday shoot yesterday and had a cake for her.
This is our Sweet Baby Grace.
What a piece of work this little girl is.
She jabbers non-stop in a language all her own.
She also has the sweetest smile, don't you think? Thanks to Jodi's Blog-It boards I was able to share several photos from her session.
The frame in the top & bottom center are from Pink Ink.
Happy Happy to you Grace Isabella.

Sneak Peek

I photographed these delightful, lovely girls this weekend.
Here they are helping me to make their mom and dad smile for the camera.
I can use some good assistants like this! The three sisters are beautiful blondes.
I saw first-hand where the expression "hair like corn silk" came from. Just a little collage for mom and dad to preview.

Thanks for letting me have a little peek into your day.

Fun on the Farm

I received an email today about having "old-fashioned fun".
This isn't really old-fashioned, but it does not include video games.
The kids had so much fun that they didn't want to leave and are already
asking when we can go back.
Here's one of my favorites of the day, enchanced with this free overlay
from Holly
Little miss wondered if this was where popcorn came from.
Here's my big boy at the wheel of Jim's combine. I think he's ready to start looking for his own farm.

Here's how they dump the load.
This is Brenda's combine. She has the fancy one. :)
I rode with her.

Brenda showed them how the combine worked before we took off.
As you can see, Peyton and Mr. Jim are good buddies now.
And here's our pretty Abby - the connection that brought us our new group of folks.
Thanks, Abby.

Grandma and the sisters all made us a wonderful noon meal - including spiced candy apples!
That took me back to my childhood and dinner's at Romines with my mom and dad.
Thanks to all of our Pittsfield folks for your generous hospitality and a wonderful day!
