It's Friday....and a BIRTHDAY!!

I haven't posted in a few days {which is sort of shocking for me}, basically I've just gotten a burst of creativity so I've been at my desk working on a 6x6 mini album that I hope to share soon. There are times that I think I'll blow through this album & others that I think it's bigger than I thought. Oh & in case you're wondering it's NOT about Disney!!


Yesterday morning the girls were all dressed for school & for some reason tha I can not put my finger on they both looked so different! I took their pics (of course) before school knowing that I'd forget if I waited until they got home from school. I tried getting Marissa not to pose but she refused. So I got this but she still looks cute!

Then it was Gianna's turn & the stinker refused to cooperate whatsoever!! See what I mean??

Early last night I started feeling the beginning of a sore throat. CRAP! I was trying to ignore it hoping it would just go away.

Also, last night was Back-to-School night at Marissa's school. I loved going to meet her new teacher & seeing her classroom! When we walked in the whole class was "there" sitting at their desks.I got to sign up to bake for each of their class parties which Marissa loves. I'm already looking forward to the Halloween treats I'll be making!

By the time we got home I was ready for a cup of tea (which I only drink when I'm pregnant or sick---and I'm NOT pregnant!!) I made a big steaming mug of tea & went to work on that mini album. By the time I was done my throat was killing me & my head was starting to fill up. FANTASTIC. I took a Vitamin C & went to bed.

This morning I had a hard time getting up but since it's Fri I was able to drop Marissa off at school & come back home with Gianna. My plans were to take a nap on the couch & shower but Gianna has kept me busy. It's 10:45 & she's already played with Play-doh, had her second breakfast & is now happily snacking on some chocolate. It's good to be her!Today is my nephew (who is the son I'll never have) Tyler's 5th birthday! A milestone! It seems like yesterday that he made his much atticipated appearance.I had these girlies with me all day waiting for the news of his arrival (his sister Nikki in green & Marissa with the mop of messy hair). Look how tiny they were!! Somewhere around 2 yrs & they had so much fun playing together.Here he is the day Gianna was born about 10 months later. Look at those cheeks!Jump forward a few years & here he is on Halloween last year as he saved the day in his Superman costume.This summer he continued to wow us with his "big guns" and today he's now offically 5!!

Happy 5th Birthday Tyler!!!
