mixed bathing, boys with bows, & halloween costume practice

A is going to be a "Fairy love bug" for Halloween so I have been trying to get her used to wearing her cute costume

We went to go visit Daddy at his office so he could see how cute she looked Annaleigh thought it would be a good idea rearrange Daddy's office. She didn't agree with his organization system.
The main idea is just that you throw everything everywhere, then all you have to do is look on the floor to find something rather than rummage through a file.
Contemplating the hard life of a fairy love bug
After both kids smeared their morning oatmeal in their hair this morning we had to make a bee line for the bath tub.
Once in the bathtub, A & C remembered the strict guidelines the church of Christ has against mixed bathing....
They decided the rules didn't apply until they reach the much talked about "age of accountability"
Russell thought it was mean of me to include this picture of C with a bow in his hair today at lunch....First of all, I don't think he was happy about it, and second, he is the most "boy" little boy I know, so I don't think we will have any problems with gender identity in the future.

And I just put this one in because I thought A looked cute!
A and I are headed to Georgia tomorrow morning for a few days...If live in the area, give us a ring. We would love to see you!

These pictures were taken to show of A's new smocked dress her grandmother made out of a pillowcase!

Now & Then

So, a year ago or so I posted about how Russell and I go on walks just about every evening to the little park near our house. We actually still try to walk almost every evening so I thought it would be fun to take pictures at the same place we did last year and compare. Obviously, the big difference this year is we have a squirmy 17 month old on our hands who doesn't want to sit still to take a picture!

A note to Whitney Cantrell

Note to Self

Dear Self: The next time you want to take your child's picture in cute cowboy boots, do it before church, not AFTER church when she is ready to go to bed.

Susan G. Komen 3 Day Update

Below is a copy of the support letter that was recently sent out. I hope you will consider donating to this worthy cause. If you would like to donate, just click on the link at the bottom of the page.
Dear Friends & Family-
As many of you may already know, I am committed to walking in the Susan G. Komen 3 day walk for breast cancer. We will be walking 60 miles in 3 days October 26-28th. As a condition of participation, I must raise at least $2,200. Proceeds benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund.
I am asking that you would consider partnering with me in this great endeavor by making a financial contribution to this cause that could potentially find a cure for Breast Cancer.
I thank you in advance for whatever you can give.
I have also compiled a cookbook that I would love to send you in appreciation for your generous support so please email me back and let me know if you decide to make a donation.
Thanks so much!
