I'm a very blessed woman to be a mother to three handsome boys and one lovely girl. I enjoy being creative and love telling people's stories through my work as a video producer. I wish Jane Austen had never died. I love trash magazines and despise most reality TV.
It actually felt a tad cooler last night. Who knows why. Maybe we're getting used to these 100+ days. Hopefully, we get some relief soon. We desperately need rain. We've had so little this summer. I told the kids that I will run outside when it rains next and get wet. They looked at me like I was crazy. Well, this heat will do it to you.
I love this shot. If I take a dozen or more, I sometimes get one that I think almost has as an artistic look about it - like a real photographer would take. See all the leaves from the weeping willow? It's really weeping this year. It looks like Fall at our house.
It's hard for me to get a picture of Maggie when she smiles. Those cute little smiles of her's will disappear so quickly and I'm left with this somewhat disgruntled look. She really loves to swing though.
Flashing that famous smile of his.
Matthew asks, "Um, what am I supposed to do?"
Poor kid. The outside doesn't hold much appeal for him yet.
We attended the county fair last week. It was actually a little cooler that day than it has been. We entered Liam into the Cute Baby contest in the 2 to 3 year old category. People kept asking if we had entered Maggie. I think they were a bit worried because she's so stinkin' cute.
I'll admit. Those contests are a bit sad. Showcasing your kids in front of complete strangers just to get some silly ribbon. Also, one of the elements on the score card that I saw laying on the tables was the healthiness of the child. Really? So, where does that leave special needs children? It doesn't seem fair. In my opinion, it should always be based on personality.
Liam has plenty of personality and cuteness to spare.
I thought the kids would be super excited to ride the motorcycles.
they scared Liam. Poor baby.
The train ride was a better fit.
Maggie won a cute dolphin at the "Go Fish" game.
And Matthew came along for the ride. He was a trooper.
Jesus said, "Let the children come to me. Don't stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these. Then he took the children into His arms placed His hands on their heads and blessed them." Mark 10:14,16
