catching up…

Catching up on editing photos. A few favorites. Julia and I did a fun mini photo shoot a few months ago. She is quite a silly girl in front of the camera.

Eric was out of town a awhile back, and the children and I saw a flyer at the store for a show at the theater for that evening. “Little Women” by Jane Austin. I thought it would be fun to take the girls, but the boys assured me we needed escorts for a night on the town. Soon, they were digging through closest’s to dress their finest.  They even picked out an evening gown for me. Time out here… We live in a small rural community. No Broadway here. No reason to dress up for really anything, other than Prom at the local high school. But I do love dressing up and my darling children have somehow managed to take this trait to heart and delight me with it! So, knowing that we would be WAY over dressed, and not caring a lick, we dressed up in suits and high heels and pearls and gowns and went to see the show. It was really a lovely evening. Everybody stopped us and talked to the children. They were pretty much the youngest their by 50-60 years! 😉  And brought many smiles and compliments from the crowd.  The show was super fun and even the boys said they liked it. (I’m sure the milk and cookies at intermission helped seal the deal for them). It was nearly dark when we showed up, but we still took a few pics.

And these last pictures are from our last outing on Grandma’s farm. I have been needing to take some patriotic pictures for one of the exam rooms at the office.  It was freezing cold out, but these two littles did a great job helping me get the pictures I needed! (And thanks Uncle Roger for your Harley…it was perfect!!)

Hmm.. I love Jesus. I love my husband, Eric. I love my 8 beautiful children. I loved living in California. I love sunshine and the beach. Shopping at farmers market and the little stores downtown where I can bargin for the best deal. I love to sew and make things. I love spending time with girlfriends encouraging each other. Date nights with Eric are fabulous. I love ballroom dancing with him. The smell of my new little baby and the miracle of their existance. I love italian food- or just about all of Italy for that matter. I love art- paintings on my wall that I know personally who painted them.

    I love that you dresses up for the play!! How fun is that – you look beautiful and the kids, darling! No wonder you were the talk of the night among the crowd. Local community theater is one of my favorite things – and little women is a great show!

    Sweet shots of your girly too. And your little guy on the motorcycle – love!!

    Happy Friday!! :))
