Thank you

So I've been seeing a lot of this lately. Lauren has been quite mobile trying to keep up with her sisters. So needless to say now that I have 3 mobile kids my house has been pretty hard to keep up. I follow her around all day and she gets sticky fingers all over just like the other 2 do!
So the other day I was having a pretty hard day and I was anything but a happy mom around here. The girls were being noisy and I was trying to clean and it seemed like every time I turned around I had to get mad at one of them. 
Then I decided to take out my camera and breath for a minute. 
The girls were trying to be good so they went upstairs and got into the dress up stuff. They came downstairs and grabbed the brooms and played fairy princess cow girl running away from the scary monster baby.
for about an hour.
I love taking pictures because it's not just about trying to get the best picture you can...it's about a different perspective. It changes you! It makes you look at something differently. 
It helps me see how cute Lauren is trying to keep up with her sisters.
It lets me see how good of friends Maren and Taylor really are. 
Thank you girls for helping me see that some things can wait....
Thank you for all the giggles I hear and the never ending desire to play...
Thank you for you simple insight into this crazy world.
Thank you for your constant need for kisses and hugs. 
Thank you thank you for always reminding me to live in the moment with you. Thank you for letting me in on your endless game of dreaming.

So to the sticky fingers on my windows and walls and everywhere else....I have some fairy princess cowgirls to save from the naughty baby monster...so for now you can wait!

Family Photo booth 2010

Our family photo booth was pretty awesome this year :) The baby wouldn't stop crying and the girls fought most of the time, but we got some fun pictures.

Maren's 1st Official Day Of Kindergarten

So I have to admit I was not on the ball the day she started Kindergarten!!! She had to be to school at 8:45 and I didn't wake up until 8:30 so we were rushing and she was mad at me! Usually my baby wakes me up at least by 7:00 or 7:30 so bad day to sleep in :) Anyways she was so excited to go she wouldn't even look at the camera. She kept telling me she had to go see her teacher and so I got just a couple pictures and then she ran. 

I love this picture of her waiting in line to get to go into the school. She just kept looking at me and then the teacher and she was getting so nervous. Once the teacher said it was time to go in she was excited and didn't even look back...she was ready!
She is just waving at some of her friend in her class.

Lauren's Favorite Time of Day

She loves when I get her in the sink and let the hot water run on her chubby little hands. She could sit in here for hours.
