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!

And now a Bear Scout {RP Post}

N had his annual Cub Scout Blue & Gold Dinner and Awards Ceremony this past weekend. He has progressed from a Wolf Scout to a Bear Scout. He is very excited about this, especially because one of his den mates told him that as Bear Scouts they get Swiss Army knives. Um, I'm not too sure about this...I don't want to see what nine 8-year old boys will do with Swiss Army knives!

In other news, M has moved out of her crib to a big girl bed! So far so trips in and out of bed before she finally falls asleep (knock on wood!). J is doing well and our dog Samson seems to be recovering well from his cyberknife radiation treatment that he received last week. That's it for now...back to my Spring Cleaning (anyone interested in the 18 garbage bags of clothing that I have earmarked for Goodwill)!
