Boo Boos and Tutus

Today was my day to snap some tutu shots for a friend of mine who is trying to get started in a home business. The plan was three little ones together for a few shots that would make beautiful marketing photos. Not so simple. We did get some great shots but it definitely wasn't as easy as we were hoping. It is taking A LOT of editing but we will have some beautiful ballerinas to show off.
I woke up this morning to find little drops of blood all over the kitchen. Of course I questioned the resident vampire and he was quick to say he was drinking blood last night. He of course was lying and I had to figure out where the blood truely had come from. It turns out our cat has some sort of bite. No good. Sunday morning would mean a very pricey vet bill so I called the next best thing, my nurse/mother in law. She came over and assured my very upset little Emilee that the cat would be fine.
Next, Caitlyn decides to take a tumble off the kitchen stool. Bloody lip, bloody nose. All is fine, but more drama! Geesh. What a day!

Lazy Saturday!

Codys baking project. He was so excited about making a cake, he talked about it all week long.

Lazy Saturdays. Gotta love em! I woke up to breakfast in bed. Courtesy of my sweet Cody. I had the biggest bowl of Special K cereal I have ever seen. He is so sweet. After that I rolled out of bed to find a hurricane had touched down in my kitchen. I didn't know making mommy a bowl of cereal could create such a disaster but oh well. I clean that up and head out to tackle the leaves. Yes, it is almost February and I am still raking leaves. Not because I am lazy and never did it in the fall, but because the darn things are still falling. Now they are soggy and gross. Oh what fun. I raked and raked until my hands were bleeding from the blister I got. (Can you hear the violin playing in the background) Come on, this is my blog I can whine a bit. Leaves are picked up, dog doo doo is scooped. Children are fed and ready for "quiet time". Awwwww. My heart is happy! Tonight is hockey. We are making out first attempt at taking Caitlyn. Should be interesting. Eric is at the academy today, is suppose to get out early. We shall see. The weather is beautiful today. Sun is shining, warm enough for just a light jacket. Better go enjoy it. See ya!

Cody the Vampire

A random conversation that occurred just this morning:

Cody: "Mom, I am a vampire. Yesterday at school I drank somebodies blood. It was yummy. Also, vampires have cold skin, feel my skin. I am a vampire."

How can you argue with logic like that?
Last week he was a super hero. Hmmmm. I wonder what he will be next week? My household is so weird. I love it!

She speaks......

Weather has been like this......
Wishing for weather like this..........

I'm back......... took a little break from the world of blogging. They say if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all. I am sure I could have come up with something nice to say but every time I went to make a blog entry, nothing. Things are getting better, my attitude is improving. Blame it on the icky, gray, cold weather. Or maybe the after holidays letdown. I don't know but I am back.

Let's see what's new?? I signed Cody up for T-ball tonight. He is so excited. Another Wentworth boy to hit the baseball field. Baseball is a Wentworth thing so he has some big shoes to feel. I hope he doesn't feel the pressure from daddy too much. Emilee is still doing horseback riding but she has also asked to do softball. We should have a busy spring ahead of us. Caitlyn is growing up so quickly. She loves her independence and insist on doing everything herself. It slows our morning routine down, A LOT! Oh well, she feels such pride in dressing herself or combing her own hair. Eric has been busy working long hours and then attending the reserve academy 3-4 days a week. I usually see him on average about 17 minutes a day. It's rough. My job is going pretty good. Same ol', same ol'. The long winter nights of not much going on are getting a bit old. As for my photography stuff....nothing. Haven't taken a photograph in over a month. Strange, I know. Not intentionally, I hope to do some pictures this weekend. My favorite kind, little girls in tutu's. Stay tuned. I will be sure to post them. Anyways, that's about it. Now that I am back I hope to keep the post a bit more regular. See ya soon.
