Keeping Busy


It's been a full week since my last post.  Evidently, I just don't have as much to share these days but, it certainly isn't because we have nothing going on...maybe because I've had too much going on. LOL And isn't this picture of this sweet little girl looking up to the Heavens while holding her teddy just priceless.  I feel like she could be saying a little prayer, "thank you so much Jesus for my little friend teddy the bear.  He is perfect for me and I love that you give us such perfect things."  Too cute huh.  
We have been keeping busy as always. We're working on finding the right paint color for our dining room and that has been a challenge (for me). The dining room is a disaster and I don't like having disasters in my house so you can imagine my sense of urgency to get this particular project finished. tee hee. I am trying to find a nice cheerful beach blue (a soft but, cheerful blue hue) and who would have thought that choosing a blue could be so dang difficult. The swatches and samples that I buy look perfect in the store and then when I get them home and onto my wall they look too green, too gray, too purple or to aqua. I have painted about 8 colors on my wall and I think I've just about pinned one down after getting some samples from Benjamin Moore today. I love their paint! I'll be sure to share the room when it's done...in like, forever.
  I've had a couple of photography sessions over the past 3 weeks. One for a 6 month old little beauty and one for a two year old little cutie and friend of my daughter. I absolutely love photographing kids. They are so full of life and personality and they aren't worried about posing or how they look. They just do their thing and I get to take pictures of it. It's a blast!  I had SO many favorites but, I included just a few in this post to share with you all.  Aren't these girls adorable! 
Daisy has become increasingly active and energetic over the past few months.  Keeping her busy has been a better workout than any elliptical or treadmill could ever be.  We go to the park a couple of times a week, have a couple play dates every week, walk through random stores that have fun things for toddlers to touch and play with, turn the hose on everyday and spray each other, go for walks, build things with legos, color, play with play doh, read books, dance, watch shows, let her drive my car (pretend) and have a billion tea parties every single day.  WHEW...I'm tired just writing all that.  I tell my husband everyday that she is his clone when it comes to her attention span and her energy level.  Thanks honey! Yes, she wears me out lately, but she is also such a blast and talking UP A STORM!!  More on that to come.
I just love this sweet family picture. These folks are good friends of ours and photographing them as a family since their daughter was a newborn has been such a treat for me. Love being a photographer!! Really it is a lot of work but, it is SO rewarding! So yah, other than photography, getting sick a lot, working in our yard, encouraging my hubby, hanging out with friends and entertaining a toddler I haven't had a lot going on. :P.  Hope you are all having a blessed Monday.
