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!

POTD - Week 19: Important Women in Our Lives

My children love their grandma very much. They get excited to talk to her on the phone and often wish they could spend more time with her. Unfortunately, she lives pretty far away so we don't get to visit with her that often. But when we do make the trip to see my mom, my children have a blast! She is very important in our lives. Since I don't have her nearby to photograph her, here are some photos that I think she'd love. This morning, two of my children decided to collect flowers for grandma for Mother's Day. While I don't think the flowers will make it to Florida, their idea was cute!

Hi Jonah and Maya! What a perfectly wonderful Mother's Day you made for me! I turned on my computer and found two of the most precious people in the whole world reaching out to me with hands full of beautiful yellow flowers! How did you know they were my favorite kind? I downloaded your pictures to my desktop and now I can enjoy your smiles everytime I turn on my computer! Thank you so much, my pumpkins. I love you with all my heart! XOXO
