SO - until I can catch my breath and find my mind, I'll be posting randomness from my iphone. I do however have some great images to share later - some of this glorious desert in bloom this spring, some of my beautiful Bug in preparation for Junior Miss Arizona pageant, and many more to come. I'll be sharing lots more later, promise!
Buggy and her cheer team were invited to cheer on Monkey Boy's school at a pep rally in preparation for their state testing that begins this week. Monkey Boy was recognized for meeting standards for Math and Reading from last year's testing.
And a little funny here: as I was teaching her about safe use of a curling iron, I happened to burn my good and blistery. Way to go, Mom. I also left the kitchen burner cooking a pot full of rice unattended this weekend too... another "DON'T do as I do, but DO as I SAY" parenting moment.
We also finished up Red Nose Day pictures - which totally kicked my butt this year. We did very well, I just need to learn to say "no" and manage my time a little better over spring break next year. I also got to photograph some adorable siblings with these 'borrowed' chicks and this tiny bunny. I pretty much shot on continuous mode the entire hour and a half. I've never filled a whole card up with one session, but it was a little chaotic to say the least. That's going to make for too many hours of culling this week, but the results will hopefully be wonderful and worth the time and energy.
Time for this momma to hit the laundry, dog bathing and brushing, and the dusting and vacuuming for sure!
XOXO - Jess

[New Mexico 2003]I will forever LOVE this picture, and the people in it. My! How time flies. Cliche? Completely. But so very true. Sadly, true. Monkey Boy will be eleven next month... he'll have earned his Arrow of Light and completed his Faith in God requirements; he'll be finishing up his last year of primary school and headed into junior high. Yikes! And don't even get me started on the fact that Freckle Face will be starting her first year of high school. YES - HIGH SCHOOL!!! It's a good thing I'm not an emotional gal or I'd probably be a wreck right now. Happy Friday, peeps... hope your weekend is fun-filled and full of great moments.

Rewind 13.25 years... Freckle Face's favorite place to hang out while mom got something worth doing accomplished. Washcloths, running water, knobs, mouth rinse cups, toothbrushes and a mirror are all a nine-month old needs to keep herself entertained.
