------so lots going on... the weather has finally gotten nice here in Indiana! 2 weekends ago I was out in my yard getting it all cleaned up and ready for the bits of green sprouts to start taking over! I can. not. wait! I actually get giddy this time of year and have officially changed my favorite season from fall to spring. I got my first pedicure of the year, and some new fun flops. ( i live in these all summer long.. could be why my feet have expanded and my heels are one mega callus.
anywho.. its fun, and I love hearing the birds sing and the airplanes buzz overhead.
Tatum is having a ball too, as this is all new to her. We have realized that she is lightening fast and also a dare devil. nothing at all like her older brother. I have a feeling this is going to be the summer I actually go buy one of those kid leashes. Oh, my goodness, did I really say that?
Ok, I would never put my child on a leash, but we'll have to put the smack down on boundaries quickly!
Brigham is super psyched to get back on his bike, and he is already practicing baseball. We'll sign him up for t-ball in a few weeks. Let the craziness begin.
--------went out for St. Patty's day last night and got carded. Yep! either its a normality to have prego women coming in for an evening that is all about the excess of alcohol consumption, OR the wrinkles on my face are not as visible as they seem, and I still do look 19 years old.
we did have a great time out, and I wish I had brought my camera. It was amazing to see the time and effort that people put forth in their Irish gear!
---Thought the kindergarten decision was a done deal. now there is a petition (of sorts) getting started to create a single half day class. While I am ok, with pulling him of an all day classroom, this would be more ideal. They need to have 20 kids, and so far they have several parents leaning this way.. not sure the number, but it could happen, as a few moms put the pressure on the principal of the school.
Truthfully, I would be ok, with sending him to all day kindergarten, but we're not sure that the teachers could handle him that long!! Plus, I am slightly hoping that he will get tired out from longer 5 days a week, and therefore take naps along with Tatum and his new sibling.
------Brigham was helper of the day today. It cracks me up the things the kids take for show and tell. Today was a stuffed parrot , that I got at Oriental Trading last summer for his jungle party. He just found it tucked away in the closet last week, and it has now become his favorite thing! I made some yummy 'fruity pebbles' rice krispie treats last night around midnight, while my husband continued the festivities in our living room.
If you haven't tried making them.. they are heavenly (in a non chocolate sort of way!).I am so glad I made extras.. as this un born babe has a definite sweet tooth.. lol.
---here are some pics from a quick photo shoot I did with Tatum. Found the wings and tutu at Michael's.. not the greatest, but it was super cheap(money wise) and I wanted to see how she would do . I actually am wanting to get her a peti skirt for her birthday session. I am still waiting on my new back drop and seamless papers to arrive, so I pulled out my mega hunk of white fabric.. threw it in the dryer and once I started editing, realized that the wrinkles show up pretty good. which makes these pictures pretty bad. =(... so instead of these being used in some marketing, they're going to scrapped up. I still think they are uber cute.
---got my spring marketing whipped up and ordered, and will hopefully get them sent out early next week. I'll post a sample soon. Hoping that with this nicer weather, people will want to get out and I can not wait til' the color starts popping up!
----oh, yeah... I totally know that there a bunch of you that read my blog regularly.. but you never comment. So here is a challenge.. the next time you stop by leave me a comment.. tell me hi, and how you came across my blog. For my next 3 posts, I'll take all the comments.. put them in a drawing for a super cool prize. don't know what that is yet.. but it WILL be super cool.
have a fantastic day!
