I can breathe regularly now that I have another session posted. I've neglected posting personal pics because of it. Here's a picture of Ayvarie that I took about a week ago. Sweet and simple. I have been very busy this past week...and weekend. Isn't that my usual post? We had to go grocery shopping Sunday morning of all times! I had multiple photography sessions this weekend, the kids' sporting events (as usual), and I have spent a lot of time on the computer - but not for personal use. No, I'm not complaining at all. Having photography biz to fill my time is pretty darn rewarding.

Ayla is testing us with bits and pieces of the terrible twos. I sure hope it doesn't linger. Not sure that I remember the other two ever acting like this - screaming, hitting, throwing, (thankfully no biting), etc. The one thing that will bring her down off of her throne is putting in some Hannah Montana. We get to listen to it in ultra stereo via the speakers, Ayvarie, and Ayla, too! She loves to sing. It's no wonder considering all Ayvarie does is sing, dance, and jump around throughout the house.

I'd better join the family in the land of slumber.

It's all about action.

I LOVE this shot.

A bit grungy.
Ayla followed Ayvarie around with interest in being photographed, but chickened out when it came to her turn. I'm not sure how I'm going to capture her 2 year pics in less than a month (I can't believe it).
As you can see, I messed around today (for the short bit of time I had) with some new actions. I LOVE them. A couple of them have been worked up before (see Ayden and windmills below). I prefer my new windmill pic for sure. Not sure which of Ayden's edits I like better.

During the rest of my day, I tried to get some housework done, did some birthday shopping for a party Ayvarie is invited to this weekend, took Ayv to dance, played with Ayla during that time, and took time to meet up with my sister for supper. Our schedule for the rest of the week/weekend is just as busy...but with scheduled things such as get-togethers, meetings, Clover Kids, ball games, and practices. Whew! And I'm supposed to find time to edit pictures? No doubt I will.

Rock Star.

The kids must be lacking attention because they asked to have their pictures taken. Who am I to deny them?

He is sure growing up!Look at that hair.Here's my Rock Star!I absolutely love this one!

Green Energy

This is the new skyline in our countryside. This row represents one of the many rows of (gigantic) windmills going up around here. It still amazes me to see this every day on the way to and from work.

Parking Lot.

This is what my driveway looked like a couple of days ago. My house contained 3 extra boys and 2 extra girls. Yikes!

Just thought I'd make a quick post before I head out for Knit & Wine tonight with my girlfriends!

Saturday, September 06, 2008, oh my!

Last week was the start of our new fall schedule. Ultimately, it will look like this for the next month and a half.

Monday - no practices or games
Tuesday - football games for Ayv & Ayden
Wednesday - soccer practice for Ayv
Thursday - dance for Ayv
Friday - no practices or games
Saturday - soccer game for Ayv
Sunday - football practice for Ayv & Ayden

Along with that, I plan to keep busy editing, working, educating Ayla on the benefits of an afternoon nap, and other motherly and household duties.

Here are pics from Ayvarie's morning game today.

This afternoon, I had another greatsession - check out for previews! I have another session (possibly two) next Saturday, too!
