Lame I know...No blog for 2 1/2 weeks.

No I haven't jumped ship just yet on blogging.  I have been busy these last few weeks sewing, taking photos, and more sewing.  I pulled out my Olivia's baby quilt that I started before she was born and decided that I should probably finish it only 5 years later.  I have also been sewing some way fun strip quilts for the twins and then of course the other two said "We want one too" so off to the fabric store to make sure that I have enough fabric to go around again.  I will post some pictures shortly of my projects.

Yesterday I went to the elementary for kindergarten roundup for Olivia.  I can't believe that she is going to be a kindergartner.  She has turned out to be the best little girl.  Maybe a little bossy at times to Harrison but very helpful.  She is so excited, she keeps asking "When do I start at the kindergarten school?"  I signed her up for cheerleading for the summer.  She loves to dance around everywhere.  And when she dances, she really dances.  She puts on this face that she means business.  She sticks her lips out and raises her eyebrows and off she struts her stuff.  I have often found her boogieing at many public places, like the mall and Target, and she dances without any cares.  When she was littler, like even last summer, we would joke in the family that we have our own stripper cause all she needs is a pole.  

Sparkle Photography is now open for business!

I finally decided to start my photography business.  After several years of toying with the idea it is finally time to just do something about it.  Sparkle Photography is the name I have chosen and I am really excited.  So whenever you are ready to get some new photos of your loved ones or even yourself call or email me for an opening and prices.  I can do whatever you need.  I have done many maternity, new born and of course baby and toddler sessions.  I am working on setting up my website to showcase my work.  My new email is and my number is 208.709.1888.  Can't wait to hear from you.

Organizers for hire.

Oh happy happy day.  The joy of your babies growing up and helping out with the chores.  I've got the best organizers anyone could ask for.  They are out for hire incase any of you are looking for a very personalized taste.  They specialize in tupperware drawers, boxes of paper, bathtub toy baskets, books, oh yes, books, dog food, dog water, blankets, folded clothes piles, neatly rearranging your other kids very special toys,  oh the possibilities are endless.  Custom projects may cost more depending on size.  

When ever I get the camera out and sit on the floor all I can hear is pat, pat, pat.  And charge here they come.  I love it.  They are so curious and want to be where ever I am.  I love the shots of them up close and a glimpse from my view.  

Lock the cabinets...the twins are walking!

Oh Yeah Baby We are Hot Stuff.

Yeah I finally figured it out.

Just this last week both of the twins have decided that they are ready to become big kids.  With in one day of each other Max and Ella took of cruisin.  It is absolutely adorable to see they putt around the house.  Max walks like he has one stiff leg and Ella is just too cute.  They are already conspiring to destroy the house.  Ella is like a reverse vacuum and throws everything behind her as she makes her entrance.  Max loves the tupperware drawer.  He will get one or two things out and be content but then Ella comes right along behind him and immediately starts digging and throwing out things faster than youcan blink.  If a box of papers is anywhere to be found it is now ripped up and spread all over the floor.  What a fun time we are having at our house.  I have given up all hope of keeping a tidy floor.  So if and when anyone comes over just look up at the usually stays pretty clean.

"Dam" I mean "Dad"

No I am not starting to swear on my blog that is just Matt's new name around our house.  Harrison has somewhere picked up saying, "Dam where are you?" or "Dam I need a drink" instead of "Dad".  Of course at first you wonder if you are hearing him correctly and after you hear it a few times you know you are right.  Every time he says it we just chuckle and of course try to correct him with "Dad".  It will work for a few minutes but without fail shortly he is back to his new name calling.  Last night we asked Harrison if he knew what a "Dam" was.  Of course he didn't so we took the safe route and tried to explained that a Dam is a big wall that holds up a lot of water.  So a little while later and a few corrections of the wordage Harrison pipes up and asks Matt, "Daddy do you hold up lots of water?"  hehe.  So funny.  I love how innocent he is.
