Boys will be boys. I know you've heard that saying before. And the older my little rascals get, the more it rings true. I mean come on. How often do you see a little boy holding a stick in his back pocket like a gun? Or goggles are worn as "sun glasses". Every game is turned into Cops and Robbers. Fingers are always muddy. Worms are pets. And every new animal is always called 'Spike'.
Thumbs up mom!
He's such a good sport when it comes to the camera.
And he doesn't mind when his little brother pretends to choke him. Lordy. Where did those sunglasses come from??
These two really are best buddies. Even though half the time, they are beating each other up... playfully!
And some little boys.... well, they just don't grow up. But that's okay, I love that he's a little silly. Cause I'm the first to admit....that in our house, I'm the serious one! And in case you were wondering... Yes, that's my hat, lol, not his :) ~
We got our first baby chicks yesterday. This breed is called Dixie Rainbow Mix. I've never heard of it, but since we already had most of the other breeds, we decided to try a new one this time.
Don't you just want to love it and hug it and squeeeeeeze it until the head pops off? Ooops. Sorry. I got carried away. Teeheehee They're just soooooo cute And I wish they stayed this small...forever and ever. This little one hung out in bed with me last night. They're all so squishy!! ~ I also got a little crafty the other night. Decided to decorate my client CD covers. The plain cardboard seemed so boooooring...
So what does one do when they have extra scrapbook paper?? You guessed it. Mod Podge to the rescue. Seriously, I would Mod Podge my entire house and everything in it, if my husband let me. Business has been picking up, and on top of all these events I've been co-chairing, this little momma needs a break. But there's no time for a break when you're in high demand! Last night I took on another challenge and was asked to photograph the local Miss Louisa Pageant. I'm very excited about all these new opportunities coming my way. Yay! I guess on that note, it might be time to clean my house. The dishes, laundry, and mopping sure won't take care of themselves:) Happy Saturday to you, I'm off to photograph a wedding event rental business today.... And I'm very excited! XOXO April
I know some of you live in places where you joyfully had a white Christmas.
Us, we had a "dusting" if you will.
And then it was gone.
I've spent the last two weeks with this nasty cold that has been going around. And the rainy cold weather hasn't been helping any. But, somehow, we've managed to get out and enjoy ourselves. We went on a tacky Christmas light tour in Richmond. I had never been before and it was kinda fun! Apparently this home has been featured on USA Today, Fox News, and TLC. Cool right? It definitely was the best home of the night.
I got kinda crafty this year, (thanks to my friends and Pinterest of course).
Mod Podge may or may not be my newest craft obsession.
But i'll let you figure that out for yourself :)
I made picture frames, wooden letters, felt flowers, yarn wrapped wreaths, and I also mod podged family pictures onto canvas's I purchased at Walmart...yes, Walmart!! Acutally, since I hate hate hate to drive anywhere, I actually got all my supplies at Walmart.
And speaking of mod podge, I got the coolest gift EV-ER from my friend Margaret....
She made this ornament for all us girls. We've done a lot this year together, and I mean a LOT.
It's gotta be the most thoughtful gift. Sure do love that girl!
Christmas has gotten cleaned up for the most part. Still contemplating the tree take down. I've really been enjoying the lazy days around the house with the kids.
Still trying to fight this horrid cold, but I think a trip out to DC tomorrow to visit the museums may do the trick.
I hear there's an awesome LEGO display at the building museum. But that's after we check out the Native American museum, there's a horse exhibit, and.....well, we have a horse lover in the house!
Always loving on Daisy....if we had somewhere to put her, she'd definitly be happy! I'm getting sick of telling her that "No, the horse can't stay in your room."
Here's our last attempt at a family picture ON Christmas Eve.
I just plain give up on a nice picture!!
Look at Eleanor, such a doll. She's the only one who seems to pay attention to the camera :)
Born and raised in the heart of Virginia...I'm an antique loving, marathon running, vintage collecting, fashion junkie who loves her sewing machine and camera. I'm a natural light photographer and outdoor enthusiast who just loves her little life and family:)
