Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

How Many People Does It Take to Blow Out 40 Candles? {RP Post}

Well from the looks of it, it takes about 5 kids and 2 adults (one not shown)!

Things have been a whirlwind around here pretty much since Thanksgiving. It all culminated on Saturday when we managed to pull off a surprise 40th birthday party for Ken's sister. Phew! Lots of scheming, trickery, and downright lying were required to get the 50-some people to our home for the celebration. But we did it! So, happy birthday April and happy 2008 to everyone!
