Work Related Issues

If tiny hands ever snag your mouse... 
...this is where you might find it.

Refrigerator Gallery

Our monthly art show was held again last week...
the artist and her work.

"Reagan in Bed"

"Reagan wearing a necklace"
(very Picasso, isn't it?)

Daddy's work titled
"Spotted cat under a rainbow"

"Blue Butterfly"
(betcha couldn't guess that one, huh?)

(the horse from Toy Story)

"The queen with long hair"

Here is a pretty intricate little drawing that
I found one morning in her room.  She often draws
until she falls asleep at night. She said it was a picture of
Daddy (main figure), Baby Reagan (small figure
standing beneath him), Mommy (oddly shaped
figure in the middle), Payton our old cat (far left - awww :)
and the smiling sun and clouds. She also informed me
that Bracken could not be in the drawing
because he was at Grandma's house.
Hearing about her drawings are just as
fun as watching her do them (if not more).

February Flowers

Since we won't be seeing actual flowers
for at least another month we decided
to make our own...out of cupcake liners.
Which actually worked out quite nicely
since we only had four left in the tin...
(not enough for a batch of cupcakes
but enough for a bouquet of flowers!)

She has that crazy
"I have been cooped up in the house
for too long" look in her eye...

Bracken was pretty impressed by our craft.

Looking sweet.

My 2nd Child...

Because I am an equal opportunity mother
here are a few photos of Mr. B looking
extra cute on a lazy afternoon.
There's that smile.
What are YOU looking at?

Reagan's World

Reagan has an abstract eye for photography...
she insisted upon using my camera this week
(even though she has her own!)
 Hello, Kitty!
 Daddy! (pretty good, actually)

Sugar High

I should have known that Reagan was in a kooky
mood for photos after this first one...
I will have to check the sugar content
on the hot chocolate next time.
Look out Little Miss Perfect Contest...
(for the record, we do not watch
that show...anymore)

80 Candles

We celebrated Great Grandpa Earl's
80th Birthday a few weeks ago...
Naturally, he had a Chicago Bears' themed party.
 Daddy and Bracken enjoying cake.
  Bracken found a new friend to drool on.
(cousin Nayte didn't mind at all...)
 Stella looking as cute as ever!
 I actually got this face when I said "smile for mommy!"
Fast forward to when she is 14
and I say something that she thinks is lame...
I have a feeling I'll be seeing this face again!
 Daddy has his hands full.
 Earl and Bracken comparing trucks.
Having his cake and eating it, too!
 We love you Grandpa Earl & Grandma Judy!

Lazy Days

Cheesin it up after school...
 She thought this was pretty funny!
 Spaghetti Night.
(you can see why we removed his shirt)
When we pulled him away from the table his lap
was filled with noodles...which he then
picked up and kept eating!
 Apparently he didn't get enough spaghetti.
  Powdered Donuts.
(need I say more?)
Out little comedian thinks it is pretty funny
to sit on the princess stool (we think so, too).
 Yep, I am smitten.
