Wish I could claim this as my own creative genius.

Kids Fly Free

I guess we've found a way around buying a ticket for Justin the next time we decide to fly.

The most comfortable pair of pants I own. If allowable I would wear them all day, every day:

Obsessed Much?

Reading has always been my one of my favorite ways to relax. I don't get the chance to read as often as I would like to now. I just always seem to find myself with a million things on my plate.

A couple of weeks ago we were at Sam's Club and I was strolling the book section. I saw the book Twilight and I figured I'd pick it up and read it. I was surprised when I couldn't put it down. I read the first book in 5 days and the second book in the series in 4 days.

I sent Bryan back to get the third book in the series. I just can't put these books down. It's been a long time since I've been this crazy about a book.

Our backyard needs a lot of work, I mean A LOT of work. Step one was knocking down the hideous gazebo over the jacuzzi. Step two was getting the sprinklers working so we can start growing grass.

Good thing Bryan is handy, otherwise I would never have a yard!

My dad came to town and the kids haven't seen him in over a year. I was worried that he would be hurt because they would be scared of him. Dylan warmed up to him right away and Justin loved him from the start because we told him "Papa drives a big truck." The highlight of the visit...getting to drive papa's truck:

Obey the Shirt

"Vote for My Better Tomorrow"

And for an even better tomorrow, he wants you to vote for Obama ;)

*****Forgive the shock and obvious sleepy child. I took this picture of him before school at 5:30! What a trooper.

Look I'm Flying

My children's favorite past time. I've given up on getting them to quit jumping on the couch. I just have to accept the fact that one of them is probably going to break an arm in the not too distant future. This first shot of Dylan is blury, but I really like the way it turned out:

Are You My Mother?

This bird/crane/small dinosaur, whatever you want to call it, nearly gave me a heart attack when I went to check the mail.

My other obsession is the moon. This is a shot of the moon last night through the pine tree in my neighbor's yard.

Only a Matter of Time...

Challenge Day Five~Fear!

Today I had the day off work so we decided it would be a perfect day to take the kids to the local pumpkin patch/fair. We did not buy any pumpkins but the kids had fun riding all sorts of rides and slides. I can't complain I had a good time too.

I took this picture of Dylan and me at the bottom of a HUGE shark slide. We were waiting for Bryan and Justin to climb to the top so I snapped this photo. Little did I know I really would be screaming like a little girl on this was fast!

Challenge Day Four~Waiting

Today you are all in for a treat. A photo outside the walls of my home! The kids both had well child visits with the doctor today. So to kill time while waiting for the doc we had car races on the carpet in the exam room.

Challenge Day Three~I Totally Suck at This

I forgot my camera today, planned on taking a picture at work. So last minute I decided to take a photo of me on my deck freshly showered. It's my favorite way to relax after a long day. The only thing that's missing is my glass of wine.

Challenge Day Two~Hide and Seek

A nice friendly game of hide and seek before bed.

Self Portrait Challenge~Day One

Some of my other friends who are also participating in project 365 have all decided to also do some photo challenges along the way. First up, a week long photo challenge where we take a photo of ourselves in a different place everyday. Day one, just me in my kitchen. Please forgive the lack of makeup.

Fall is in the Air

At least as much as it can be in Southern California. That has always been my one complaint about living in Southern California, we don't really get to experience the seasons change. The temperature will go from 100 degrees to 60 over night. The leaves on the trees will go from green to dead in a flash. Even so those quickly dead leaves make for some great fall pictures.

The Face of a Princess

I took this picture tonight while we were at Legoland's Brick-or-Treat. Bryan took Dylan to get her face painted, nothing too exciting. She just wanted to complete her halloween Ariel princess costume. But when I got home and looked at the picutres, something about her face really tugged at my heart.

I'm amazed and grateful everyday that she is my daughter.

Temecula Sunset

I love sunsets, always have. Tonight's sunset I found especially beautiful.

Starting it off with a BANG!

I will never understand the fascantion with wearing my heels. And I will always be jealous that they walk better in them than I do!
