Group Shot...

My mom requested that while Jason is here visiting we get a shot of he, I, and the girls. So today when we went out to visit Carlos at "the farm" we asked him to snap a few shots of us in wintery sunshine.

The first viable option...


Oops, Jason has his glasses on and Brea, well, is less than impressed with this whole process.

On to the next option...


Probably the best shot...glasses have been ditched, Brea is still less than impressed with our photo shoot but is at least looking at the camera.

Carlos keeps clicking away, which brings us to...


...finally a smile from Brea, but alas, Jason and Lexi are BOTH blinking.

One last chance for that perfect shot...


The girls at this point have lost interest and are watching James the cat as he's wandering around down in front of us.

Maybe we'll have better luck next time. (Like when it's not so stinkin' wintery out.)

Thanks Carlos for your photography services!

On a positive note, I don't totally hate the way I look in these photos even though the wind has my hair all funky, looking nothing like it did when we walked out the door. (I have a hair appointment in a couple weeks..and I'm feeling the urge for a shorter change. A strong, strong urge I tell ya!) So be it. At least proof, beyond random shots of my feet, that I exist.

My Most Read Thoughts

Senseless...

Today while I sat in a classroom supervising students as they worked on their math assignments, I watched Lexi through the window enjoying time with her friends during recess. My heart smiled.

Those moments, moments of learning and carefree fun, those are the moments that SHOULD make up a school day. As a Mom, and an elementary school employee, my heart is breaking over the news and images coming out of Connecticut today. 
I send my kids off to school everyday without a second thought that they will return safely come day's end, just as I'm sure each one of those parents in Newtown did this morning.
Every day I walk into my school for work without a second thought to my personal safety, just as I'm sure each of those teachers, paras, custodians, sectretaries, etc in Newtown did this morning. 
Theories will be published. Evidence will be presented. Words will be exchanged about gun control and the need for change in our current culture of violence. I don't suspec…

DIY: Reusable Produce Bags

With Earth Day festivities gearing up for tomorrow, I thought I'd take a moment to post a short DIY tutorial on making your own reusable cloth produce bags. (Tutorial inspired by my favorite crafty mom blog, Crazy Mom Quilts. Produce bags inspired by running into my friend Laura at the grocery store while she was stuffing her produce into these.) This is my next step in the fight against the excessive use of plastic bags.

Our family has been making small environmentally minded changes in our daily lives over the past few years. We use reusable shopping bags. We've stopped buying/using Ziploc bags and plastic wrap. I'm trying to commute around town via bike more. I'm being more mindful about where the food we buy comes from and how it was produced. We more often hang our laundry on the line to dry in the spring and summer instead of just throwing it in the dryer. (Which is convenient at the moment since our dryer has decided to quit drying.) As we use up chemically clean…

Sunday Morning Silly...

Once in a while Dando's curiosity urges him to venture off the bookshelf so he check out other toys in the house.




I think he thinks Froggy is missing a few marbles.
