Ok so a month ago… my mom brought me my whole blog printed out and had it bound. It was so cool! It made me want to write more and have more pictures. And look! Here I am a month later and I haven’t entered anything. One reason is that I have been super burned out on the whole photography thing. I really love photography but I have lost my desire lately. The thought of bringing my camera anywhere is less than alluring. Hopefully that will change soon.
And then it just seems so tedious to pull pictures and make them smaller and write something… But I am so much better about writing stuff here than in a scrapbook. I think I did commercial scrapbooking too long (since 1999) and I have no idea how to really get my feelings and thoughts out in a scrapbook page after the event has passed long long ago. But I could easily take this blog and make scrapbook pages out of it. Which is why I really want to take advantage of this more.
I finally pulled the photos up that are of my front yard which I LOVE. Remember back in Sept I was talking about it getting done? Well, I give you the before picture first on the far left… and then a few afters. This is pretty much what the house looked like when we bought it seven years ago except all the white trim was this horrible blue/turquoise. Oh and the driveway is new… it used to be crumbling ashphalt. I just can’t seem to capture it and all its cuteness that well but you get the idea.
And the boys are out there ALL DAY morning and night. The grass is totally getting shredded and a few plants and sprinkler heads are lost or broken but it is all worth it. They have so much fun out there. And the last few days have been warm and it is so nice to sit out on the bench. I just love it. It will be nice this spring when all the plants get a little bigger. And then a new front door… oh I could go on and on to Joe’s dismay;)
As far as baby news goes, we have a few names but it’s so hard to name anothe boy. We’ll figure it out though. the baby is moving and sometimes it catches me off guard and I kind of get freaked out and think "there is actually something alive inside me"… it’s very weird.
Last night I was so happy about everything. The boys are so affectionate lately and we had such a fun Valentines day. Joe and the boys made cupcakes because I was craving a frosted cupcake. We all exchanged cards. Both boys felt the baby move for the second time. They think it is really weird too and they love it.
The next time I get my act together, I will post pictures of my newest line that was at Ekstrav in Dec and CHA a few weeks ago. I love it but I’ve seen it for so long that I am really looking forward to my summer release at CHA Summer in July… wish I could share that now:)
