Day 324 & 325 - Potty Break and Coffee Break

I had to snap this of Madison... I know I am a mean mom! How could I embarrass my daughter like this? Well I was short on time... hadn't taken a photo yet and we were in a public bathroom and I happened to have my camera... so SNAP! Here is day 324

Do you have a Hastings in your area? I love this place! We go there often especially in the winter and the kids and I go over all their homework. What i love the most is everyday they have happy hour and I can get a buy one get one free on all coffee drinks. The kids absolutely love it! Here is Jacob studying his Math homework and sipping on a Cotton Candy drink.

Happy Shooting! :D

Day 320, 321, & 323 ~ always but that's how I roll!

Not even a week into Project 365 and I slipped behind a few days. If you knew how crazy busy I have been maybe you might cut me some slack!

This week has been a little rough. I am missing my husband because he is gone out of town again this week. It has been rough on all of us with him being gone out of town so much. My son Jacob left a note on daddy's car seat that said "I miss you when you are at work." It was on this itsy bitsy tiny piece of paper and he wrote it on there and my husband found it as he was leaving to go out of town for a week. It was a tear jerker.

 The kids and I haven't done a whole lot because I am behind on my photography work and trying to catch up.  I did take them up to this place called Tablerock tonight and we watched the sunset. It was so awesome and such an amazing view of the city of Boise. I hadn't been up there since I was in High School a bazillion years ago!
So here are my pics. I missed day 322 (gasp!) Are you surprised? Does photos of someone else's kids count?

This was at Grandpa's house. Tried to get all 3 to look and smile... but my kids did not want to participate in that adventure! Madison was pouting in the background.

I haven't photographed my dog in so long! Here is lil Miss Adda... this naughty puppy is in the doghouse today. While I was gone she got into the garbage and left a huge mess for me... part of that mess included this mornings coffee grinds all over the floor! Arrrgh!

This was at Tablerock. Love this picture and the boys enjoyed participating in this photo.

Day 319 - Oh the messes we make!

I promised my kids we would paint our pumpkins today. It was such a mess! I am so glad I went to the dollar store today and bought these aprons for the kids.  LOL! I think I saw Ryan painting himself more then I saw him paint his pumpkin. It was fun. I also made this 11x17 template and plan on printing this photo out on my new printer. I bought the Canon Mark Pro Color printer. It's quality is outstanding for home printing!

I really hope I don't miss tomorrows project 364 cause I have a full schedule... Wish me luck! I am rocking it so far!

Day 318 - Pumpkin Patch

Today the kids headed to the pumpkin patch. Madison got her "baby" sized pumpkin and Ryan found the biggest one he could. Jacob missed out cause he was at school but at one point I considered letting him skip school so he could go.... Would that make me a bad mom? I would be teaching him to play before work... LOL!

I have tons of pictures from today but I chose this one to share. it is my favorite of the day. This was Ryan as he was exiting out of the maze made out of hay stacks. I can always count on him to pose for me.

Day 317 - Playing in Leaves

I had to beg Ryan to lay in a pile of leaves and let his brother throw them on his head for this shot. A bowl of ice cream later for Ryan and a beautiful image for mama... we are a happy family.

Going to hang out with the kids tonight and watch Iron Man. I have been battling this cold for a week now and I thought I was getting better but my headache returned today....

A Photo A Day to Keep the Guilt Away....

So I decided that I really need to quit making excuses for neglecting my blog. The other day I had to send in a recent photo of my son Ryan for school and I had to dig through the archives back to early September to even find a photo of him. I am so upset at myself. One day I will look back and regret not having those memories of my little ones no matter how big or small they may seem.

So I decided to jump the bandwagon and start the 365 project. Only one photo a day and it will keep this guilt away! I love the idea of this project and since I love taking pictures... WHY NOT!! I am also cheating... I know I am not on Day 316... but I really didn't want to wait till January 1st to start and I don't want my numbers to be screwy.

My blogs may be short and sweet from here on out but at least not neglected. Thank you to those that have followed my site have been asking where I have been. It makes me feel special. But here I am and here is a picture from the park today. My sweet little daughter who has become the most challenging to photograph.
