A Few Missed Favorites

So I think some of us bloggers do the thing where you take a picture and think about blogging it and later realize that it never made it to the blog (in my case almost a year). So here are some of the things I planned on blogging but never did . . . until now.

So this cupboard is one of the kids' favorite place for them to play. I have no idea why. I totally love it. Maybe because it reminds me of John and his favorite cupboard back in the day.

Kayda has been my trusty model. Even though I have slacked on working on my Etsy shop, I at least know that I always have a cute model for when I need one.
My boy- just chillin.
At Thanksgiving I decided to do a MudRun with my friend Kathy. This may be the dirtiest picture I will ever post on my blog.
One day my crazy sister-in-law brought a bunch of kids to have some fun with us. It was so fun!

We had a memorial blood drive for Celia. She appreciated a good silly picture, so that definitely had to be a part of the blood drive.

Yes- I was trying to get Kayda to look like a Hunt.

I love matchy, matchy. (and when my kids sit still for longer than 2 minutes)

So there you go. Just keeping it random for you.

Once upon a time a time, a long time ago a mother of two decided to take her kids to the park. It was a warm day as winter was approaching so she wanted to soak in as much fresh air as possible. Like some mothers she hurried out the door not caring about what her kids were wearing, neither their clothes or what was on their faces.

Little did she know a huge group from a photography class was there waiting to catch their prey.

Her kids were supposed to act like they usually did- to keep them in their element. So, they made faces,

played with their mom,
posed for the camera,
made more faces,

ogled at the kids playing (notice the fuzz halo),
decided where to run to next,
and showed off their findings.

The kids kept in their element but the mom learned she better get a little out of her element and be a little more prepared for pictures at any given time.
