Picture Perfect.


I took these first two pictures of my girls last night. The lighting was warm in the kitchen, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I am amazed that Olivia is looking at the camera..... usually she immediately puts her head down when she sees the camera come out. My Hannah is growing so quickly. I can hardly stand it that she is going to be turning 8 in June. Talk about wanting to get time back........

Sunday afternoon we decided to take the kids to the duck pond. The light activity of feeding the hungry quackers ended - gosh - maybe 2 minutes in - when I heard "splash" and "Mom heeeelllllpppppp me!". I'll let you guess who fell in. The funniest part of the whole duck-pond-diving was immediately when he fell in, I yelled "Well, SH*T, Ian.....". Much to my dismay and other passer-by-ers, I realized some habits dies really hard. We fled the scene of the crime FAST.


Now this last one is cracking me up. We are at war with one of the neighborhood dogs. Murphy belongs to a 77 year old, nicotine addicted, savvy grandma. I like the lady, really I do. I look out for her, tend her when she is ill, we chat often.... but her dog..... THAT DOG!! That dog pees and craps in every one's yard and I CANNOT stand it. We even have a dog, except she uses a designated kennel for her eliminating needs. Hannah apparently has been listening to me moan about the problem, because when I was cleaning up her art work, I found this: "Murphy, dumb-d0g-shitzu, WANTED, Pees in people's yards.". Am I a good mom or what!

As for the wanted poster! Fabulous! We have stinkin cats that come into our yard and do their business in my flower beds! ERRRR! I feel your pain!

That dog poster is too funny. I was just chuckling. The picture of the two girls is precious. I would be lying if I said my kids never heard a few choice words slip from my mouth. Sometimes it just happens.

Yeah, my kids learn that kind of language from me, too. *hangs head in shame* I guess it's better than the playground. At least they learn it right. ;)
