My Girly Girl!

This is my soon to be 4 girly girl! She loves everything, dresses, and of course, sunglasses and accessories! Soooo cute! When she is done with the sunglasses, she puts them up on her head like a headband cause she wants to "be like Mummy!" .....she always makes me smile....well almost always.

Family Fun

Elsie is a FISH! She takes after her water-loving, Dive Master, Swim Team Champ father and secretly has gills hiding somewhere on her body! The twins are quickly following suit! Our pool has been about 90 and we are all in it almost every day! Elsie is learning the free style stroke and the proper use of mask, fins, and snorkel so she and Daddy can go to the beach and see fish! The babies are happiest when they are underwater trying to swim like their big sis. Come on down.....the water is wonderful.

Nightly Ritual

This is our nightly ritual. Some days, I am so tired by 6pm that I convince myself that dirty sending my children to be dirty is just not that terrible! But someow, I push through that ever-present fatigue, round them up and get them in the tub! I am always glad that I did because aside from having clean babies, they LOVE the tub...well water in general. These 30 mins are some of the happiest of the day and a wonderful way to wind down. As a side note, when this is all over, I am wet enough that I look like I was in there too! I am sure that someday they will all kill me for taking this photo (especially Tripp) but I figure it is a Mummy's perogative! LOL

Babies in Boxes

Look How We've Grown

Last Tuesday was Elsie's Spring Production at Holy Cross Preschool! It had a "catepillar into a butterfly" theme and it was positively adorable! Elsie was the sunshine and her big solo song was "You are My Sunshine" which she sang exactly in tune and brought down the house! All the children were terrific. It is amazing what these four teachers can get 30 preschoolers to do! Can't wait for next year's play!

This was Mummy saying "smile Elsie"...she happily obliged! LOL

This was a long stretch of the play that she and a bunch of other children were not involved in....can you tell she was getting tired and bored??? Priceless! LOL

Leading the chorus!

Receiving her "diploma!" She was so excited!!!

This was her hair that we did for her big play, complete with butterfly one even got to see it cause of her sunshine hat, but it was sure cute!

I'm Back!

Wow! It has been a while since I signed on to my blog. So much has happened since Saint Patty's Day! The irony of the whole thing is that since I have started my photography company, I have not had time to take pictures of my kids! LOL I am turning over a new leaf after some razzing from a friend (you know who you are) about not being on the blogs. I hope to "see" you all more often!

Bridal Shower

This past Saturday, I threw a surprise garden bridal shower for a very special someone in my life, Miss Anna Dundas, soon to be Mrs. Gregory Karabensh. I had help from her best buds Mary Beth and Marianne....otherwise known as Mary A and Mary B, .....her fiance Greg and my dear friend Lydia and it was a terrific surprise! This is the invite:

The Bride to Be walking in and wondering why all her friends were all dressed up standing in the yard! LOL
