My cousin, Heather, is a senior this year at Pocola High School and I got the opportunity to practice using my new camera on her the other day. I'm also trying to teach myself a little basic photoshop, so here's the end result. I was pretty proud of it.
This is our tree. Every year when I pull it out of storage and start to set it up, I think "oh how pitiful!" It kinda reminds me of the Charlie Brown Christmas tree because of all the gaps that are in it. I don't know if you can really see it, but I can. Now that we're in the new house with a taller ceiling, we'll be able to get a larger, fuller tree for next year and years to come. This year during the DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS SALE I'll be on a mission to find a nice tree. I guess I should start asking for Christmas ornaments as a gift so that we can have more to put on it.
Hope everyone has a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving and Happy Day After Thanksgiving Shopping to all!!!
Bailee and Jacob LOVE to play together! I just had to share this picture, because Jacob usually says CHEESE just long enough for you to get your finger on the button and then by the time you're pushing the button, he's looking away or just stopped cheesing. We couldn't believe it when this picture came out as good as it did.
Bailee and Daddy went to Target the other day (mainly to get out of the house). This hat was the most prized purchase of the day. She's turned into quite a CHEEZER lately.
I've had a lot of trouble uploading pictures lately. In fact, this is the first picture I've been able to upload since a couple of weeks ago. I think it's my internet connection.
My great friend Leigh Ann took some pictures of Elli the other day. To view them go to www.stillmomentsbyleighann.com Click on "capturing life" then "client proofing" and the password is Elli. Let me know which is YOUR favorite!!!
Tomorrow marks Elli's 2 weeks of life and I must say she's been a very good baby. Still yet, she is a baby and, of course, in need plenty of attention. I started thinking back to when Bailee was this age to try to remember if life was this way with her. I think as a mother, or at least with me, our brains tune out all the moments that are the "hard times". Here are the things are forgot I forgot:
1. Late night feedings that seem to come every hour. 2. Actually being able to function the next day after being up all night. 3. Changing a diaper and then 2 seconds later changing it again. 4. Getting peed on. 5. The little smiles that you get (even though you know it's probably just gas)
I'm amazed at how much energy I have during the day, but how fast it gets zapped once the sun goes down. It's all worth it, though!
