January 2008


January 30, 2008

Since I’ve recently posted several pics of the A girls, I’m going to just inspire you with these two artsy ones. I’m having lots of fun with my camera, especially taking those dramatic, close-up shots. I think I like the blue berries best…that blue is very unique…it’s like a soothing slate-blue. How interesting is it [...]

THE doctor visit

January 25, 2008

For those of you with preschoolers, you know which visit I’m talking about. THE ONE in which your 4-year-old (or if you’re a procrastinator mom like me, your 4 and a half year old) knows what they’re in for…SHOTS!!! Today was Big A’s Big Shot day. I have to say that up until the actual [...]

Winkin’ and wavin’

January 21, 2008

Little A, our 13-month-old, usually ends up in our bed in the middle of the night, along with Big A. So by morning, CA, me, the A girls and our two dogs are all in one bed. (why do we even need more than one bedroom???) Little A wakes up in the happiest mood. Her [...]

First weekend of 2008

January 7, 2008

Just wanted to post some pics that I took this weekend. Our weekend consisted of: 1. finally putting up Christmas decorations. 2. completing our week-long stint of dogsitting Poinsey (short for Poinsettia), the cock-a-poo. I love Poinsey, but a third dog makes it pretty crazy around here! 3. playing outside. Enjoy the pics! Of course, [...]

Timeless art

January 7, 2008

My great friend, Jennifer, and I have a friend who is currently gutting and renovating a house that was built in 1873. I had the opportunity to visit her new house, and she graciously gave me the grand tour. I could not believe the wallpaper that adorned the entire foyer of the house. It’s old [...]

True sign of a 31-year-old mom

January 1, 2008

It’s New Year’s Eve, and I’m working on my blog. Not really partaking in New Year’s festivities, as usual, but I’m very ok with it. I’m enjoying sitting on my couch wearing my pjs, playing on the Internet. Here are some pics from the weekend. I had to include the dog ones…just b/c I took [...]
