My gals and Rider Pride!

Wow – today FINALLY felt like summer. I was out working in our garden and I actually became all sweaty glisteny and stinky aromatic. I loved every minute of it. And why not? I got to commune with the flowers and plants 🙂 I love the colors of spring, no? (photos of plants courtesy of my hunkster hubby – yes, he knows how to rock the camera, too!).

In other news, Miss B finally lost her second front tooth. She can now officially sing “All if want for Christmas is my two front teeth”, complete with the lisp. And just in time for her class field trip to a farm – nothing like sharing the news with some cows and sheep!

Miss JJ’s hair is growing back, and we are all very happy about that. I even gave her a trim today. A few days ago, we were all waiting patiently in the van for miss J to join us…. and she did…. after dancing the Nutcracker in it’s entirety first.

..yep…she’s one cracked nut!

I also made the mistake of trying to snap a quick pic of my roses before church on Sunday. Mistake because we were already running behind our usual (show up 30 minutes early) schedule and that puts me in a foul mood. Plus, I should have remembered that my girls are sillies and it takes forever to get a nice shot of the four of them (people pay me to get great shots of their kids, but my own? Hardly). Still, we ended up with these:

Not too bad 🙂

Oh, and I have to share one of my new favorites. I’ve been told by friends, family, and strangers alike how much these two look like each other. I just don’t see it – never have. One has brown eyes, one blue, one has a long skinny nose, one has a shorter, wider one, one has skinny lips, the other full. BUT, in this shot – I can see a resemblance. They are both mine 🙂

And speaking of taking pics of other people’s kids… may I present an 8 month old Rider SUPA fan:

This little guy was a dream to photograph. He made the most hilarious expressions, and made my heart melt on a few occasions 🙂

All in all a good week.

  1. The pictures of your girls turned out so nice. Hope you tipped yourself! That little man, oh what a doll! Those first two pictures are my favorite. Who doesn't love a man (even one so little) who has dimples?


  2. It's true – summer MIGHT really be here! Nothing like the swarming of flies around you in all your “glistening” glory to make a girl feel good!
    Love the pictures too – I do see a resemblance between the two girls but also can understand how a mamma just can't!!
    Happy Gardening!


  3. Beautiful shots!

    Question for you….

    I can't afford the full version of Photoshop but I can get the Photoshop Elements program. Do you know much about it? Do your tutorials help in the Elements program? Thanks for your help!

    By the way, if you are wondering who I am. I found your site through Heather D. White. I'm a blog stalker! 🙂


  4. Thumbs up on the nature shots! And LOVE the shot of the little guy holding mom and dad's hands. Looks like it's all he can do to stay up on his feet- too cute!
