Forced to Have Fun

I am still around… just obviously not on my blog. It has been a crazy two months.  I ended up spending a surprise week at girls camp, Beau had youth conference for a week, we’ve had 3 reunions and family gatherings. Caitlyn turned 2. (Where has the time gone!)  I’ve been trying to get design work done on the few days we’re home, keep up with the house, keep a garden growing and do something fun with my kids.  It’s been a good few months, but I’m so looking forward to one of our first weekends all home together as a family. To relax, work on projects or just do absolutely nothing except be together. :)  So instead of backtracking (so I actually will post something), we’ll start with today.

The funny part about today was forcing myself to do something fun and messy with the kids. Being a designer, and having to create my own layouts to promote my designs, I’m always in the need of some ‘HERO’ shots.  So for the last week I’ve been working on some new designs, and could find very few good hero shots to use in layouts. So what do I do. I either pay an arm and a leg for them off of istock.  (Maybe I should look into getting on with them and let other people pay me! :) )  Or the next best thing; force my kids to smile while mom sets up the stage for shooting some ‘HERO’ shots.


Couldn’t you just eat her up!  I sure could. She is just the cutest little girl right now.

Wait a minute, that's Caitlyn?? I can't believe she's already 2! Wow, time sure does fly by, doesn't it? I remember her at convention, just the cutest little baby girl. But don't worry, she's obviously still the cutest little 2-year-old! :)

Glad to see you got some great hero shots. I just love your layouts with huge focal point photos and great styling. :) Can't wait to see what you've been designing!

I'm with Laurel. There is no way that can be your little baby. Holy moly. So precious. I love you and your sweet family! My kids still refer to you guys as the family that we "fed the birds with on the beach." Gotta love that.
