Happy Birthday!!

to me :)
Every year I always think of my momma on this day.
At least now that I have kiddos.
I'm glad she went thru the long (for her) 3 hour birth
(where I rolled in the middle of hard labour.) OUCH!
Thanks mom!

And thanks for all the birthday wishes I've been getting.
On the phone.
On facebook.
In emails.

And on a side note.
Had a fun photo shoot for my good friend Leah.
Who is so that cute pregnant lady every other pregnant lady hates cause she looks so good.

yep that's her!

um hello there!

yes. we are still alive around here.
yes. we've been super duper sick.
no, it doesn't help (at times like this) to have a doctor in the house.
you just gotta live out the flu.
it does help to have regan around though.
as dad.
and house cleaner
and dishes washer.
and laundry doer.
he's done a lot around the house the last few weeks.
for which I am sooooo thankful.
he works all day at school and then comes home and was working here too.
poor guy.

i am a tiny bit swamped with waaay to many things that i said i would do.
i have a slight problem of not being able to say no.
wonder where that comes from.... (right mom???)

one thing I have been working on is this....

Okotoks Scrapbook Convention
Check out this article about it here.
I am helping with the classes.
Trying to get them all together and arranged and teachers and sponsors.
It's a GREAT cause!!

And photos.
And regular mommy stuff and wifey stuff.
Plus we had our Primary Presentation at church (glad it's over!!)

Sunday Seven (on Monday)

1. I am so very thankful for my sweet husband Regan. When I have nonsensical ideas he talks me out of them. When I am upset about something he calms me down and helps me see the right way to act. He is just so good.

2. I am thankful for my momma. We talk about a lot of stuff. And that she is always backing me up.

3. I am thankful for the sunshine. I'm not ready to cave into winter yet....

4. I am thankful for Lucy Ann. Her complete non stop talking and silliness. While waiting in costco for photos this week, a lady was pushing a cart with a baby in it. I pointed out the baby, to which Lucy yells at the top of her lungs "I NEED ONE OF THOSE!" heee heee. A few days ago she decided she really wanted a baby monkey. I have no idea where that idea came from but she talked about it all day. She "needed" a baby monkey. She goes into the play room now and shuts the door, when I check on her she says (totally coping Alden) "I play by myself!"

5. I am thankful my kids play. They really enjoy their toys. And I can get stuff done too.

6. I am thankful for Alden's quiet manner. I love that about his dad too. And it is such a nice trait.

7. I am thankful for prayer. To be able to know how to talk with a loving Heavenly Father and get answers.

And what is a post without a picture?

Sunday Seven (on Monday)

We were driving to Edmonton and back yesterday so here is my Sunday Seven.

1. I am thankful we could go to Edmonton safely and happily with the kiddos to be with family for the baby blessing of this little sweetheart.

2. I am thankful for one of these.

It made our 3 hour trip both ways much happier for us all!

3. I am thankful for emails from happy customers like this....
"Rhonda! The pictures are incredible!! Thank you so much for the extra pictures on the cd. The ones of Heather are my absolute favorite. Next summer I'd like to get some pictures done for Heather and I's first anniversary.... (It's kind of like paper....I could print them out.....) Probably sometime in July... I'm sure you're going to book up quickly with weddings so I'll give you a call well before to book a day.

Thanks again,
That makes me happy that he is happy.

4. I am thankful for the good relationship I have with my momma. Love her. Love talking to her. Love that she lets me call her many times a day.

5. I am thankful for being able to do designing for a company with a good owner. Love working for barb at Scraptivity. I like what I get to do. And I like her so that makes it even better. Some of my November creations.

6. I am thankful that despite being super busy, my wonderful husband will come home so I can go do important things without the kiddos.

7. I am thankful for gooood food. Had this for dinner tonight. It is absolutely one of my very favorite meals. Totally messy but oh so worth it.

a princess and a ninja turtle

Here are the long awaited costume pictures.
I had to bribe the kiddos with treats.
But that is just fine with me. :)

And no, Lucy's boots aren't part of her costumer but someone just gave them to her and she loooooooves them a lot. (Thanks Sean and Val!)

helloooo there

so i've been wondering to myself
do you think it's better to post once in a while and get lots of comments....
or do you think it's better to post almost every day and not get very many.....
