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: Home Sweet Home

It seems like I've spent some much time indoors lately! It has been beyond frigid and with all the ice and snow we've had, I'm not keen on taking A & M out much. Miss M has been getting very bouncy lately (her nursery school teacher commented to me today "She sure has a lot of energy, doesn't she! I hope she naps for you") but fortunately responds well to art projects (as she does NOT nap!). Today I pulled out her watercolors so that she could get a start on her valentines for her nursery school party next week. Thankfully, this occupied her for nearly 2 hours and I was able to get a few things done during this time so we can have a cleaner home sweet home! :-)
