Catching up. :)
Okay, here’s the last several days.
The Ninth – The wee girlie waits in the front yard for her Pop Pop to pick her up for an overnight at the lake.
The Tenth – Jennifer and Jacob’s wedding.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I HATE shooting posed portraits. They are lifeless and stale. Not at all my style. But it was their wedding day, and posed portraits are what they wanted. Who am I to argue? So I smiled and laughed with them as I arranged the traditional wedding portraits, one, after another, after another… I started getting a little buggy… so I flipped them around. LMAO It made things much more fun. 😉
The Eleventh -“I can do it myself Mommy. I don’t need your help.” Here’s the wee girlie, putting in a quiet time DVD without my help. 😉 And for those who are wondering, it’s Slim Pig… on loan from the library.
The Twelfth – The beginnings of Lily-Ann’s “Strawberry Day” dress.
Strawberry Day is the wee girlie’s birthday. I’ve called her my little strawberry since the day she was born… and so it just seemed like a natural to refer to her birthday as Strawberry Day. This year she has requested a princess party. Two of her favourite things right now are princesses and excavators… a princess party is much easier than an excavator party so I wasn’t about to argue. 😉 That said, we needed a princess dress, complete with sparkles and tulle galore. It should be quite lovely. I’ve devoted two evenings to it so far, and easily have another full one ahead. I can be so domestic at times that I scare myself. LMFAO
The Thirteenth – Mommy’s Day!
Yep, I took a lunch date with a couple of my dearest friends today. Damon is home on holidays for the next couple of weeks and was here to watch the wee girlie… so when asked, I jumped at the chance. It’s not to often I get time like this to visit with friends. So here we are; Jenn, Susan, and myself (of course they stuck me out front) heading back home after a great lunch. A much needed treat that I’m very appreciative of. Thanks so much Susan, thanks so much Jenn. I love you guys. Today meant a lot. 🙂
So… there we are. All caught up. Take care everyone, and don’t forget to tell those who matter most to you that they make a difference in your life. It’s always a good thing to hear, and something many of us don’t take the time to say enough.
