So I went to post some pictures tonight and I was told I was out of space for pictures, and that I'd have to purchase more. Sniff. So it looks like my days of blogging here are pretty much numbered. (I had this warning once before, but then it went away so I moved on. This time, it would NOT let me upload any photos. I don't blog as much anymore, but I liked having my own little space here. If I find another space that accepts me for who I am, a space hogging, photo lovin' kinda girl, I will post the link to my new blog in case you want to follow along. For now I will go sulk in a corner. Or edit more pictures (whatever).

Admittedly I haven't had much opportunity lately to photograph my own kids. But since I knew I wanted to do Christmas photo sessions, I had to use my own kids as an example. So I got some Christmas pics for cards ready and out of the way nice and early this year! Anyway, I think that's probably enough pics for today...

If you can't read it, it says "Love mom dad." Translation- "I love mom and dad." Awwww. And at least it wasn't Sharpie on her bedroom door...this time.

I love looking up crafts on Pinterest. My kids however, have their own ideas. The (small) part of me that is a good parent says, "Creativity- go - yay!" when they come up with their own concepts and ask if they have to follow the planned crafts. The other part of me thinks (quietly to herself) "What the bleep are you making?" as I watch them smear paint across the page, and sometimes themselves. (That'd be the controlling, bad part of me that thinks that.) Aloud, I try my best (unsuccessfully) to sound sweet and ask what it is. Well, it started off like this, kind of like the original, and we were going to do this too, but that's when the smearing and stuff began. I bet the mom did the ones on Pinterest. Those thumbprints look pretty big, right? ;)
Our cards are gonna be original.

So Dave and I went to a late Halloween party on the weekend. We had to come up with some very last minute ( throw a dress in the washer and dryer) kind of ideas. Dave and I tried to take some pictures of ourselves. You know that awesome variety where you hold out the camera a few feet from your face? Yeah, they were not so hot. The only reason I added this one of me in the awesome yellow lighting from the bathroom is because it is a smidge overexposed to the point where my wrinkles magically disappear. Yay, I'll take it! I'm nothing if not honest. And who doesn't love a mirror self portrait (ha)? I don't even own a tube of lipstick so I tried to make my lips a bit red with a marker that I borrowed from my children. So these are our costumes, and my dress was almost dry by the time I put it on, and we were only about two hours late for the party.
