christmas vacation

I am going to me MIA in the blogosphere for a little while longer.

We are having a great holiday.

My step-daughter is here and my husband is off until the 4th.  So we are just hanging out.

holiday dress

I was not going to post too much this week.  With the holidays and all I am not visiting blogs as much and certainly don’t want to put any pressure on anybody to come by here. 



I’m a sucker for a girl in a holiday dress.

Or two.


And this is only one of 4 dresses!!  :)

my little donkey

Hannah had a great time at her show!  I was not allowed to take pictures during the actual event, but here are a few from the dress rehearsal.  I was backstage the entire time so I was not able to get many good shots.

Plus I learned it is very hard to find your daughter dancing when there are 20 other children wearing the same thing!

Busy, busy

Is exactly how I am going to describe the upcoming weekend.  This is what I have going on:

1) Company Christmas party for my husband (I plan the event)

2) Christmas show for my daughter (a little donkey), including a full dress rehearsal the day of.

3) Family Christmas dinner for about 15 (at my house, I am cooking). 

Think I’m stressing at all?? 

Actually, I have most of it figured out and am feeling really good at this point. 

But a few good luck wishes won’t hurt either. :)


My daughter had a demonstration at her preschool earlier this week. 

She went first.


See her there – she is really shy one.

I’ll let you be the judge.


Thanks to those of you who read and commented on my guest post earlier in the week – I really appreciate it!!

Oh – and MckMama over at My Charming Kids is holding a giveaway for  Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2. 


So be sure you do not go visit and enter on or before Sunday because I want to win!!!

just because, #2

Just because


My son is 20 months old today and I adore this picture I took yesterday.

Just because


my daughter wanted to be a puppy. 

Pluto from Mickey Mouse to be exact.

Just because she wanted to play fetch


and somebody else decided to join in on the fun.


Just because


Sometimes my kids get along.


And sometimes they don’t.

Just because I am supposed to be working on my first ever guest blog post


and I’m stalling taking my own “sweet” time.

Just because.
