What's that sound??


I have to totally laugh at this! Kassie totally loves frogs but we were out the other day shooting pics near a pond and we heard the biggest, fatest, deepest frog ever!!! She stopped picking her flowers dropped them and was sooo scared and concerned!! It was just too cute! I think we will stick with pretend frogs from now on!

And of course I just can't leave you with that. She loves to rub flowers on her cheeks when she picks them. Sooo girly...

Very girly...

And yes I made her another headband. And doesn't she just look soo much older here? Love those lips! :o)

Hoping for some more great weather this weekend- I love this new lens!!

My sunshine

"May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day. May songbirds serenade you every step along the way. May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that's always blue. And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through."

I took my sweet girlie out the other day to this beautiful field I have been eyeing by the road. It was nice and overcast- perfect for pictures but of course as luck would have it as soon as we pulled up the sun came right out. No shade in sight! So this is as good as it gets- sigh. She is in love with flowers now or as she calls them "flouar" in her sweet baby voice. So of course I had to pull out some stuff and make her this sweet headband. And now I can't stop making them! lol. I may list some on ebay or my etsy shop. Let me know if you want one...I have plenty of "flouars" to go around. :o)

Six and a half...

And turning 7 here shortly... :o(

Time just flies by way to fast!!! Her bday is in another month and it doesn't seem like she should be "7"! I see so many kids her age that seem sooo much "older". But not my girlie! She still believes in fairies, pirates & princesses. American doll girls are her world! And I always find her dressing up her stuff animals everyday- complete by going in her baby sisters room and taking all her bows to put on her puppies ears.

I know she can't stay little forever but for now she still my little girl. :o)

Just a few....

From our vacation- finally!!! And don't worry if you are on my email list you will be getting ALOT more- lol! These are just a few of my favs- it was hard to narrow it down from the 300+ I took!!

We had a blast and can't wait to go back again!

This was mine- and she stole it from me!! And ate the whole thing of course! :o)

What a nut!!! But he was soooo funny (look of fear on Kassie's face- priceless)!!

Oh and a huge thanks to Nicole for nominating my bunny photos over at Shutter Sisters- I totally forgot until I had a zillion visitors on my blog the other day!! Thanks a bunch and thanks everyone for visiting- I love new visitors!! :o) Have a great weekend!

Yay! We are back in business! I still have to go through all those Disney pics before I post some (unless you want to see all 300) so I will have some up soon!

I got a sweet new lens in the mail the other day. I've been wanting this lens for a looong time and have been saving my pretty ebay pennies for it. So as soon as I got it I grabbed Kassie and ran outside to test it out. It really wasn't the best of light conditions and the front of my house really isn't very scenic but I really couldn't wait. Kassie was not thrilled at all about being my guinea pig..

Not the least bit thrilled...

(love that face huh?) Luckily a sister came along to the rescue...

And off those two went ignoring my begging and pleading to go gather some rocks

Everyday those two have to stop and pick up every rock they see. They end up in my house, on the floor, in the car, in pockets, in the washer, in shoes ect. They drive me crazy with those rocks...hmm...maybe as equally crazy as I drive them with my camera. Oh well maybe next time...

Hopefully my computer will be fixed a just a few more days!! Yay! And speaking of waiting where in world is spring? It is so hard to come back from Fl where the weather was 80 degrees everyday to this! Ugh! And thanks to my friend (yeah you know who you are) for rubbing it in the other day that he was sitting outside getting ready to jump into the pool while we sit here in sweaters and jackets just waiting. Tap, tap..

To top it off we got a lovely box of spring goodies the other day! Ahh I am loving the colors and Kassie ran right off and got some of my spring props (I taught her well!).

So I sit here and wait... sigh.. hurry up spring!!

Back....sort of.....

We got back and had a fabulous time!! The weather was perfect the whole time and the girls we just perfect- except a little cranky on the first day due to getting up at 3am in the morning. I have LOTS of pictures (300+) and went through some of them today and then my computer got ALL stupid on me. So for the love of goodness will some one point me the right direction on what MAC to buy cause I am about to throw my PC out the window!! I swear it is cursed!! I am starting to hate the blasted thing!! I've had this awful string of bad luck with things for the past 2 years if its not one thing its another. Okay I will quit whinning......

So bear with me with the photos-- this is the only one I have up loaded so far. Maddie made me take a billion pictures of the castle- every time it turned colors. I ended up taking my old camera because I didn't want the lug my other huge one around. It made me realize how much I ***love*** my camera!!! I ended up putting it auto mode (GASP) and used the on camera flash (*shivers*) so I hope some of the pictures turned out decent. Things were moving sooo fast and I didn't want to miss a moment so I told myself to just let it go.. sometimes you just have to! ;o)

So cross your fingers I will be back soon with more pictures if I ever get this darn computer fixed! Ugh!!!!
