Scotty Browns to Bobby Lees

Last night we celebrated Tiffiny's birthday! We started out at Scotty Browns with dinner and drinks, made a quick stop at Barkley Bobs, and then off to Bobby Lees in Everson. Bobby Lees is certainly the best place to people watch! All in all, had a great night, stayed out too late and am paying for it today. Although I only had one beer at the beginning of the evening I woke up dizzy and feeling hung over. I thought maybe the water had been spiked at BL's but then I remembered I didnt drink a thing there because someone told me if I had to go to the bathroom, I might want to go in the trash can or outside instead of using the toilets.
I look forward to taking the kids to our church tonight for Halloween!
Here are some pictures of our night!
(darn you pictures..not working! I think my files are too big. I will post them later!)

Defriending can bruise your digital ego....

I just realized I had been de-friended on facebook! We probably have not been friends now for some time, I just now noticed! Wow, I even have taken pictures for this person! Thats ok, we were not really good friends anyway. I have 426 other friends to keep me company!

I found this funny little article on 5 steps on how to get de friended here. Really though, no worries, I am not crushed at the loss of a "friend". At least it wasnt a good friend who left me!

A picture just because..

Isn't this the cutest picture! I love it! Just thought I would post it just because. Tomorrow is Halloween! The kids have been doing the countdown. Unfortunately, Maia has come down, with what I think is the swine flu. They wont test them unless they are on their deathbeds, but it has been going around the school, and I am pretty sure Gage had it a few weeks ago. Hopefully she will be better tomorrow! Tonight I get to hang with the girls for Tiffs birthday party! So much fun. See ya all later!

Some catching up to do...

I feel a little behind with the blog. Have so many pictures, but just haven't had the time to post any. I will try to do a little of everything..maybe. It has been a very busy month, with next month not slowing down too much. Lots and lots of people to take pictures of next month! Hopefully the weather will cooperate somewhat and not rain on us. Although I just did a shoot with 4 little kids under a porch. I was a little hesitant about it because I like to move around a lot and find all sorts of different and cool things, but it actually was just fine! I think I was more worried about getting my camera wet! I will be taking the month of December off (from picture taking) to get some things ready for next year. New web design, I would love to take some sort of workshop around here, but I can find NOTHING!!! And that being said, I thought that maybe I should come up with a beginner workshop for high school gals. Would be a one day workshop that covers the basics about using a DSLR camera with part of the day shooting. I still need to work out the details but if you have a high school girl that might be interested in something like this, I have a few questions for you! I have had about 4 other girls interested in shadowing me or being my "assistant". I hear at one of the local high schools they have a photography class but it is hard to get into. And personally I cant find a darn thing around town except a few classes at the community college, but nothing geared towards kids/teens. Hopefully I can get this going for January or February. Okay, enough thinking out loud. Here are a few pictures!

Halloween party

Oh I feel like I have eaten enough for an entire week! So many baked goods, and I am completely wiped out this week. Pictures Friday and Saturday, baking, cleaning, church, then getting ready for the party. I cant even believe I am still up and writing on the blog but this is kind of down time for me. Here are a few pictures, we had a pretty crowded house tonight. Lots of kids between us adults.
(pictures are not loading tonight, I will try again later...)

Ohh, cuteness...

Little babykins is only 6 days old here. Isn't he sweet. I really wanted to snuggle him up, but since my kids have been sick, I didn't want to get too close. One of the cutest families I ever saw.

Thirty Five

Wow, 35 years old. That's how old my parents are suppose to be. I am still only in my early twenties, teens even. The reality of being 35 just hasn't really settled in for me. I mean, 5 more years and I will be 40! Seriously, that just cant be true, I do not feel this old, I don't feel like I look like I am 35. Anyway, enough pouting about it. I am excited that I am older and wiser, have learned plenty about life the last 15 years, don't wish to redo it, don't think I would even if I could. The struggles and setbacks created who I am today and I am very excited about life and all it has to offer right now. I am really enjoying the kids and watching how they are growing up and creating relationships with other friends. I have wonderful friends that make me laugh and are so fun to hang out with. Even when I think about the last 5 years and how much has happened, it really makes me excited to see what the next 5 years holds for me and my family and friends. I will tell you this though, I am having one heck of a party for my 40th birthday! It will be awesome!

and the bloggin begins

We will see how many posts I can do today but I will start with the most important! My husband and I celebrated 5 years on the 9th! I cant believe how fast 5 years has flown by! When I look back I am amazed at how much we accomplished and all the things that have happened. I hope that the next 5 years are a little more laid back but still filled with exciting opportunities and fun with the kids. We certainly feel a little more settled now. So the short non exciting story of Steve and I....he proposed to me on the Spirit of Washington dinner train in front of all sorts of strangers in June of 2004 and we pulled it all together and got married on October 9th 2004! I LOVE October and the fall and colors, I was very excited! It was beautifully decorated with the help of a wonderful friend and with the help of all my co-workers, we spent an entire evening carving pumpkins to put all over the grounds. It was fabulous! Here are some not so good pictures. I had to take a picture of the picture because I can figure the scanner out. Happy Anniversary babe! Love you the most!

I know, i know...

I know I really need to update the blog! I have so much to post too, I hope I have time this week. In a nutshell, Amara and I took the boys to StoneyRidge Pumpkin farm on Friday. Then it was Steve and I's 5th wedding anniversary! So he had set up a weekend away at Semiahmoo Resort, complete with a massage, rose petals on the floor, chocolate covered strawberries, beautiful scenery. Then we are back home today to a very sick boy, so I am at home with him, while the hubs has the kids and went to some friends for the football game. And it's my 35th birthday tomorrow. I can't even believe that. I still think I am 25. Anyway, I will post pictures of it all hopefully soon!

preggo sneak peak

Here are just a couple pics from a shoot today. My cute little neighbor is due the end of this month so I was so excited to come down and take some pic of her little belly. A funny little son Dane saw the pictures uploading and said "She has a big belly". I said " Thats because she has a baby in there." His response...

"She ate a baby?!"
