My little Future Heroes.....

We had so much fun this week taking these pictures! & my 4 year old made the entire kitchen into a crime scene.. So when I go to bed in a few hours, I have to *Duck, then Hop* to get to my room.
He even Crime scene Taped the Fridge closed.... Bummer

I kinda wanted a cookie dough ice cream bar.. but it might be gods way of telling me Not to have one.
He Crime scene taped the Dishwasher closed too... I am Positive thats Gods way of telling me "Dont do the dishes!, Take the night off, you deserve it" :)
Here is one of my future Hero's

Sweet Shot Day

Today we went to the Renaissance Festival..
It was WAY out of my hubby's comfort zone. I am so Proud of him!
& this was out of My Comfort Zone.. I let Riley get a Sword..
He is old enough now, and I know I have to trust him with things like this.. But he was so so very happy, This is his first weapon. he is growing up so fast.. Took this picture in the parking lot, most the cars were gone, and the Sky Looked Amazing! & so did my big boy,
my other little future hero..
He wants to be a Fireman.. :) He can be whatever he wants! as Long as he doesnt chose to travel around with the Renaissance Festival selling swords and shields one day..

I love my little Blanket monsters :)
The Paper Mama

Turtle wasnt feeling good last night,
He NEVER sleeps unless he is in his bed, .. but last night, He had a slight fever, his cheeks were so pink, and his whole tiny body felt warm and he fell asleep on me, my sweet baby boy.


Have a great week! I cant wait to see everyone's pictures! :)

I heart Faces Cell Phone pic :)

The challenge this week is Cell Phone pic..
Even with a Smart phone, and with a 4mp camera, my camera is still not that great. I downloaded a phone app awhile ago, called vignette from android.
I love it :)
I love the options, and all the pics turn out like Art :)

Here is a pic of Me... Just me.. on my way to work
yes I took it while driving.. Sshhh.. Don't tell Oprah.. But at least I was stopped at a Red light, so I was only partially being dangerous.
I love how like cross-process shadows, and smooths everything out, & gives Me.. Mrs. whitey white, some color :)
This photo is not edited except changing the size a bit, and only using the camera app, to add the effect :)

The Very best .25 cents I've ever spent

This picture cost me .25

This time I got 5 pictures for .25 and I got ONE good one, where they were both looking and smiling!! This is the first picture EVER! where that is happening well since Brady has been here for the last 10 months.... well worth the .25 :)

The Horned Potato

I was desperately seeking mac&cheese in the pantry yesterday, Throwing boxes and bags of rice around hoping to catch a wishful glimpse of that little blue box..

I found something more interesting, not as tasty of course but..

more like a science project I didnt even know I was partaking in..

Yes, its a potato, yes, it has horns.. yep.. nearly looks like those should be on a Deer.. Hope my brother in law doesnt attempt to shoot it.
I kinda like my little horned potato I think I'll name him "Spudly" and keep him.
