Puddle Jumpers

Saturday we went out to dinner and then we took a short trip to Barnes and Noble. I'm not beneath bribing, so when Toby asked if they could jump in the puddles I told him if they were good while Mommy and Daddy looked then they could on the way out of the store. They were near perfection (for the two of them anyway) so I lived up to my end of the deal. It's Monday and their shoes are still soaked, but they had a great time. When asked what their favorite part of the day was it was getting to jump in the puddles. My favorite part of the day was getting to see the joy on their faces when Mommy said yes and they splashed around. Mommies out there in blogland....sometimes it's okay to say YES. It's worth the mess, the trouble, the time. It's those yeses they'll remember.

FFF: Drama for your Mama

Okay so this week is Black and Whites and since it had Mama in he title I posted a couple of me with the kids too.  I have been a blog slacker lately because I either take SO MANY pictures that I can't even begin to sort through them or I don 't take any.  So sorry to all the family that checks on here.  I will tryto post at least 3x a week from now on....pinky swear.  Okay onto the pictures....
By far my favorite picture....a perfect B&W for me.  It wasn't anything special in color and it needed some cropping but I love the end result.
Me and my giggle boy

Me and my precious princessa

Cowgirl cuteness anyone?

FFF: Easter Memories

Easter Morning was a rush of excitement.  Up way to early, the children immediately wanted to find the eggs that were hidden all over the house.  That search was given up however as soon as they saw their Easter presents awaiting them in the living room.  They played, and egg hunted, and ate yummy Easter bread, and ate WAY TOO MUCH candy until it was time to get ready for church.  The Mass at our old parish was absolutely beautiful and praise-filled.  A perfect Resurrection Mass...and my kids slept through it because they crashed from their candy high.  At least well rested children (bribed with more candy) made for some really nice pictures. :)
Liliana LOVED her dress.  She said it made her a Princess.  She's right, it did!

Look at that handsome boy.  I don't want you to think I staged him like that...he had an itch....on his bottom. :)
Love this picture of them.  They're both laughing at their Daddy.

Nan and Pap with the kiddos.  Sorry it's blurry, I picked the wrong picture. Oops.

This is how most of our pictures look.

But sometimes we get ones that look like this...Totally worth it!
