"You better not pout"
and inside it says
"Santa is coming to town!
Grady, Brenda and Grace"
I'm going to MIA until the first of the year....we are taking a little vaction and I'm updating my site and all that fun stuff (like cleaning the computer...YUCK)! I still need to post my top 10 (that may be after the 1st though).

And so after 17 months of hard labor......
I finally got it....she was actually gigglin' big time! She sneezed and a bunch of food flew out at me and apparently that's pretty funny! LOL!!
Here's a couple more....
Look what I found.....
It's kinda funny with these....Tubbs hated the camera (just like Sam)! LOL!! Whenever I would try to take a photo of him...if I wasn't quick, he would get up and leave. But with these...he decided to join the "set!" So not like him, but I think he was just being nosy! =)
Thank you everyone for your hugs and well wishes! They mean more than you guys will ever know!

In memory of....
I just want to remind everyone to take photos of their pets too....they are a part of the family also. I knew this time would come but I kept putting taking picture of him off thinking surely he'll be here a little longer, but now it's too late. He had lymphoma cancer and last night he took a dramatic turn for the worse....he was ready to go. We decided to put him to sleep and end his pain. So please today, spend some time with your pets, love on them a little more than normal and take some photos....I'm searching for some and I only have 2 of him and it's breaking my heart.

I am on a mission.......
And of course.....the little Miss! She told me yesterday that her beau said to her that he's going to marry her, so I guess this is her first official marriage proposal! Haa-Haa! Guess what she said back to him....."I need to ask my parents first." Daddy has her trained well! =)

Do you wanna know what a dewdrop looks like?
Gracie had her dress rehearsal last night....she was so excited! It's hard to explain to a 5 year old that that wasn't the ACTUAL recital....that she gets to do it again! =)

Posting on the weekend.....
First and foremost, I just want to thank everyone for the wonderful and kind words that you've left on my blog, or through an email....it means so much to me that you all take the time to do it....so THANK YOU! =) And get this, my stat counter says that I have reached over 105,000 hits...WOW!! So for all of you that just lurk...leave a comment or if you have a question, ask away. =)
Now, hopefully you'll get a kick out of this...I walked into her room and she was like this. Apparently, she's a "ghost hunter!" HMMMM...not sure where she got that quirky idea in her head but I can give her this....she's full of imagination! =)
The color conversion is from Amy Howe's new conversions....love them! And the b/w is my b/w 2 conversion. =)

It's trivia time again!
Now onto the yucky inside lighting photos of Gracie's first official school program:
This is her BFF in class....they are 2 peas in a pod and I just get the biggest kick listening to them talk to each other! LOL!! God bless the boys that they like...they are high maintance girls! =)
And here's Gracie's main squeeze! Look at her face....she's sooo giddy! =)
It was such a cute program! And get this, her last school program will be in 2019! SCARY!!

No one around to take photos of
Yeah, he may look sweet here, but he's a wild one! =)
So no word on the cards yet....it still says "Printing." I'll be lucky to get them before Christmas!! Thanks for everyone's support....please do not use them, it's not worth the heartache. Even if you plan ahead of time, still don't use them.
Tonight is Gracie's school Christmas program. I went up there this week to help make their reindeer shirts...that was fun! Getting their hand prints and playing with glitter...I had it all over me when I got home.....you would have thought I went to Libby Lu and got hit with fairy dust!! Hopefully I'll be able to get some good photos....indoors with crappy lighting....YUCK!! =)
Maybe tomorrow I'll get around to taking some photos of the house decorated for the holidays. It's really nothing special, but I know a couple of you guys have asked to see some photos. =)

I missed this one somehow
See....just another reason not to delete your photos right away....It seems that some of my favorite photos are the ones that I pasted up at first. =)
I'm LOVE taking photos of kids backsides....is that just me or do you guys like to do it too? =)
ETA: OK....so I have a major complaint! I'm not that type of person that complains all the time....I'm usually the one that lets too much slide but this really chaps my hide! I ordered Christmas cards from Winkflash on Nov. 27th. I just got them in the mail today.....not the best as far as getting them fast but that's the sole reason I ordered them then....I know it's a busy time of year for everyone. Well....guess what....I got someone else's order!!! AAARRGGHHHH! So, what do I do...I call them. I'm calm....not really mad, I figure, they'll just reprint mine and have them overnighted. NOPE....not even close! I have to reorder them, pay for them again and I was told that they can't expidite orders so I should be receiving them (and crossing my fingers they are mine this time) in about 7-10 days! WHAT THE HECK? So, I'm having to bare the brunt of YOUR MISTAKE? Pretty much yes!! I guess a big company like you have never heard of FED EX? Oh but I will get a full refund when I ship the wrong ones back.....how very nice of you! How about you go to the post office at the busiest time of the year with a 5 year old and an 18 month old bucko!
OK....so, I'll stop ranting! I PRAY that my customer's cards are OK...they probably will be messed up to for writing this...oh gosh I hope not!! Anywho....this is my official boycott of Winkflash (as soon as I get all the correct orders)! NO MORE!! Yeah, they are cheap but their policies stink (for a better use of words)! I will never recommend them to anyone! ARRRGGHHHH....I'm so pissed!!!!
