HIGHlarious.... as my sister would say

Today was the first day since holidays I had Kade all by herself. We did a ton of running around. Stuff I had been avoiding doing while Rohan was home. Because... you know..... taking him shopping and running errands in incredibly fun (can you hear the sarcasm?).

She was so stinkin cute!!! I was shocked... she stayed fun and cute the whole afternoon. Never complained, never whined, never wanted to go home. Just happy to be out (of course renting yet another Strawberry Shortcake movie ensured the mood) and having fun. I love love taking this girl out. She is just so funny and sweet, and makes me laugh. I totally forgot that I wanted to get home quickly.. and had stuff to do. I forgot because I was too busy skipping down the road singing with my princess. I was too busy singing in the car watching her dance. I let her have a treat at Starbucks and watched her laugh like crazy while eating her banana bread. I played silly high five games at the bank which helped to pass the time in a long line up. I had FUN. And more importantly so did she. The holidays have taught me to spend more time having fun. And we are ROCKIN the fun scene right now!

Once we got home I had to run and get Ro and Kade was beat. She almost never misses going to get Ro, but today she stayed home with Daddy. Good thing. School can put that boy in a MOOD! I don't know why but it is sometimes torture picking him up and the hours afterwards.... he finally started perking up about 10 minutes before bedtime. JUST in time for me to finally WHOOP his but in Candyland. TWICE in a row! Ya baby!

I wanted to practice some flash action and the kids were pretty agreeable... I wanted to put a couple up just because.... just because they make me smile. I was taking a few pics for my NEW 365. Yes you heard it. I stopped my old one at just over 300 days... and have been kicking myself ever since. It just got to be too much - I was doing way more than a picture and then was telling stories... plus working and everything else. If you want to follow it it is truly ONE pic a day. Cell phone or my baby... it doesn't matter. It is one pic. True to the day, and of something that I love. I post them on FB on my fan page here. If you haven't already... like the page and it will keep the updates of the pics as I go along!

I don't think I have smiled so hard and giggled so much opening a picture of either of my kids. This is SO HER.

Oh my word. What will this kid be like 10 years from now!


He LOVES taking pics. This was one of his presents. This camera ROCKS. In case anyone is wondering. It is shockproof (can be dropped from 3 feet and be fine), waterproof (oh ya baby! I do still freak just a little everytime I see him put it under though!), and freezepreoof (for our balmy winters ;) ) I highly recommend it for young children that are into pictures. He loves it and has used it every day. It is a FUJI finepix xp10. I bought a silicone case for it just for extra protection.

LOL As I was posting this I noticed I picked the one NOT in focus. Well I guess his ears are!  Oops!


Oh ya..... she remembered she was tired ;)
