My Sisters Keeper

I had the craziest (cool) thing happen to me yesterday.  A lady called from a local law office marketing My Sisters Keeper.  She asked if it would be okay if she sent me a book and some bookmarks.  Leery I waited for the catch, she only asked for my address (which can be located online anyhow).  I hung up perplexed, but thought I would wait it out.  Today I received a package in the mail (yes, the very next day). It included a brand new copy of Jodi Picoult's My Sisters Keeper, several posters and bookmarks.  It tickles me that I now have a book to give away, since I already purchased a copy and have it read.

I love how Jodi Picoult writes. It is one of those books (matter of fact so are the other books I have read by her) that you end up missing the characters when you finish the book.  It is rather sad, but it was a book that I didn't want to put down.  I hope that the movie will do the story justice - it was a great story.

Few Pictures to Share

Conner has picked up wearing his sunglasses just like Daddy. 

Rocks, rocks and more rocks! Blake loves all things BOY!

This is such a Brian look - makes me smile! I love when I get real shots of people.

Might be hard to see at this size, but Conner has started blowing bubbles on a regular basis... especially when focusing on a task.

A fun family day!

He was not the least bit thrilled with the train and probably just as bothered that brother had taken off on it.  This shot was in between crying - I had shown himself on camera.

Blake is a riot... he has started this fake cry. Makes me laugh, does he really think he is convincing me.

This is the train that we got to ride yesterday.  Isn't that so cool!

Whenever we stop to get gas with Daddy, the boys love playing this little game.  Daddy "surprises" them from one side of the car and then from the other. They bust up every time he does it.  I love that they love him so much (and the he is such a wonderful Daddy).

Counting My Blessings

This was a shot I captured today on our journey to check out a "great deal" (will post more on that later when I have pictures). We visited a park where Conner was thrilled to see a miniature train giving rides. Conner had a blast...Blake on the other hand lost it before the train even took off. It was a long day, but so much fun!

Anyhow when I first saw this picture I didn't think too much and then several sayings came to mind. So, I spent some time playing with it and am toying with the idea of creating a wall canvas of it. Every where I go, I have been checking out artwork to grace our walls, looking for pieces that pull me emotionally. There have been things here and there with a little pull, but more and more I am thinking that I need to create my pieces (nothing too lose really - could save quite a bit of money in the end). This piece still has some tweaking: may change the sayings (let me count the ways I love you or something else) and I am pretty sure I'll be changing the font. ;)

Can't wait to pull my piano in and get some key shots - might try to come up with three square shots to hang over it. The creative wheels are turning!

Come aboard, we're expecting you...

Oh my I am so unbelievably excited! This afternoon, I booked a much needed vacation and first cruise...can you believe for July 5th!  We are taking the Star Princess up to Alaska.  This will be the longest I have ever been away from my babies (which makes me anxious), but Brian and I need a good vacation and time alone together.  Hard to believe in just over a month, we'll be setting sales for a week of fun ;) Just imagine all the pictures I'll have!
