Valentine's Brunch


 We went to brunch on Sunday with my side of the family.  It is always a treat to see everyone and eat such yummy food.  The restaurant is right on the water and we sit in the window.  The only thing that would make it more perfect would be a mimosa, but I am watching what I eat right now so I decided to skip this time. ;) Next time I will have one, or two, for sure.
 How cute is my niece?

Bouncy Birthday Fun!

Here is the birthday girl! With her mama, my friend Dena.  There was a bouncy house and a enough sugar to choke a horse to celebrate this sweet girl turning 9!

This one is loving my new affection for my camera, never failing to strike a pose.
This one is the messiest eater! She can't eat or drink anything without a mustache...or goatee, as the case would have it.

I think the kids enjoyed diving and sliding out the exit almost as much as jumping!

They have too much fun together.  I would say that this is Abby's oldest friend.  They are very sweet together.  He fell asleep on her shoulder on the way home.

There is no telling how many cupcakes Reese ate...I didn't even bother to count.
 Such a great catching up with friends!
 I had to make Abby stop to eat, too much cotton candy and jumping before lunch gave us our first meltdown in a long time!
It didn't slow her down a bit though. ;)

A day at the park


I used Christmas and birthday money to get a nice camera this year.  I have wanted one for years and I just never did it.  I got a Canon 60D and I love it!  We took advantage of a nice Saturday to go to the park and I took my camera with me to play.  Reese was a particularly willing and enthusiastic model. ;)

Upside down from a bridge, peek-a-boo!


Here is an action shot of Reese rolling down a big hill.

Wacky Tacky!...and Western Day ;)

 Daddy got us new boots for the occasion!

 Does Abby know how to do Wacky Tacky day or what?!  Reese gave her a puzzled look when she saw the whole ensemble, haha! That is a soccer shin guard in the boot on the left...
 Gold glitter goggles! What!? You can see her two braces up top and the expander on the lower in this picture.  She was really excited until the pain came and then a kid told her she talked funny :(  She does though, I find it hard to understand sometimes.
This is a great example of Reese's well-versed scowl.  Here, she didn't want to touch Abby.  She can be a little ridiculous sometimes.

 Here are my students and I from my apron class last month.  It was a fun day.  I designed this apron from a favorite one I had from William Sonoma and drafted the pattern for the class.  It was lots of fun.  The students could pick their own fabric but we all ended up matching!
Here is our "new to us" play set!!! A friend was giving it away so Kane took it apart and toted it home.  He added a few new bolts and swings.  The girls have really enjoyed it.  I can't believe we didn't get one sooner!
