10.26.09 - Andrew and I put together our very first Lego today!! I've never done one before and I have to say these things take some patience. I was pretty good for the first hour or so and then after that I was checking to see how many more steps this baby had left. My nephew used to be really into these things and I hope Andrew is too.
It's so much better than a video game!

10.20.09 - Really!!! I'm done with all of the capes. 22 capes later. I'm done. (wait I already said that) My friend Adela came over this past Sunday and we had an assembly line and just knocked them out. I had to make 4 more and I just made myself sit down and do them today. Ohhh... it feels so good!
10.18.09 - Today I took Andrew's 5 year photos. I have been going crazy with sessions lately but I had to get it done before all the leaves were gone. We've been having cold snap after cold snap and before too long it will look like winter around here. He was such a ham and I got some wondeful shots.
10.16.09 - We took our family pictures today in hopes of getting one for our Christmas card. I haven't begun to go through all the pictures but when I saw this one I knew I had to edit it. Andrew and I were running towards the camera and being goof balls. Something we both are great at. ;)
10.13.09 - This isn't just a tootsie pop. This actually has meaning. It means I got a new photo shipment in. The print lab I go through sends one with each order. I have so many of these suckers around the house it's not even funny. I decided to take a picture of it today because I'm trying to figure out what my something special is that I give to my clients. I saw on someone's blog that they send cupcake in a jar with each order. So cute! But these cupcakes have to be eaten in a certain amount of time. Not sure I like that part. Someone else gives their favorite candy or fresh cookies with each order. Don't think I could do that either. So, here I am left thinking how do I set myself apart from other photographers? How do I leave the best last impression I possibly can with my clients to keep them coming back and to also refer me. Hmm....
10.12.09 - Andrew and I hung out with friends this evening. We got the kids together to watch Snow White but they ended up just running around the house and playing. Everytime Andrew goes to a girls house he without fail ends up in a princess dress. This time however, he decided to be a unicorn! LOL I love this about him, he just wants to dress up and loves to make others laugh. That's my boy!

10.10.09 - more snow today! We got about an inch of snow and it was beyond cold outside all day long. We bundled up and headed out for some fun. Andrew continued his snowball throwing from two days ago. His aim is getting better and better. I am really looking forward to getting a bunch of snow this winter. Andrew will really be into this year and it's so fun to see how much joy the snow brings him.
10.9.09 - Blake has been working so hard on the basement the past few days. He gets home from work and then goes downstairs to work more. Poor guy. But it does look great! The trim is up and painted in the living room area. He has to paint the bead board column and the rest of the baseboard in the basement and it's done!
10.7.09 - I finally got around to hanging all the new pictures on my front living room wall!! While I love it. I have to admit the one of Andrew in his cape is a bit big. One day he is going to kill me for taking that picture of him but his wife will be giggling hysterically.
10.6.09 - No I'm not making a Snow White costume. I got this material to make capes for Andrew's superhero party and now I am just left with wondering "What was I thinking?" Do I sew? Uh. let me ponder this for a bit. NO! Have I ever sewn? Well, yes. I used to sew on paper all the time and I did make an apron once. But, the apron just about threw me over the edge because I was not patient at all. Yet, here I sit with all of this fabric and not sure what to do. Hopefully in a week or so from now there will be another post saying "I DID IT!" Hmm....

10.3.09 - Andrew helped Blake prime the walls down in the basement today. Blake actually primed and put two coats of paint on the walls today. He has been working hard to get it all done. We started this project in February and are both ready for it to be D O N E!! I'm sure him more than me since he's done most of the work. :-)
