A picture from months ago.  I'm ages behind in updating photos of my own kids, much less getting my client's portraits up on the crib tales photography blog.  But I came across this picture and it just made me stop and smile.  I'm afraid my attention has NOT been fully on my family lately.  They've taken it all in stride, and honestly they yelp with glee when they get "daddy time" when I head off to a session.  But it still tugs at my heart and gives me little jolts of guilt.  I am so fortunate to have a job I love, and a family who supports me in it.  It is little moments, like this one, that remind me why I do it in the first place...

ps - if you are wondering why the head is so freakishly large in this photo, it is Jackson wearing his bike helmet.  We were on a walk/ride when I snapped this shot.

Giving Thanks...

...for these two amazing, healthy, smart, handsome, wonderful boys (who sometimes are also cranky, argumentative and punkish).  And for the awesome guy who shares in the responsibility of raising them, and kisses me good night each night (unless he falls asleep before me, which he usually does,  in which case I kiss him good night).

Just Do It

I have a million things to update.  My (ahhhh-mazing trip to Seattle for photographs & friendship).  My husband's ahhh-mazing job as a stay at home daddy for 4 days without relief.  The boys' ongoing school activities including Holden's newest song from school entitled "Quality Friends."  Jackson waking up at 6am just so he can read The Magic Treehouse books.  My crazy work schedule (which I'm beyond blessed and excited to have).  My husband who keeps tackling far more house-type-duties than most men I know and yet still works his full time 8-5 gig.  SOOOO much.  Yet the one thing I have to share is a cutie-pie comment from Holden this morning.

I was interviewing a wonderful lady who is going to help me with some of the housecleaning duties during my busy months work-wise.  I already love her and she hasn't even started.   She came over this morning to give me an estimate and when she left I gleefully hugged Holden and said "that wonderful lady is going to clean our house for us!"  His response?  "You could just do it yourself."  Thanks for the reality check Holden.  (but I'm still having her come in and clean my house for me)

Soooo apparently I have uploaded 1GB of photos and am no longer allowed more space unless I pay.  It's cheap, so I probably will.  But until I get it sorted just know that:

1. Halloween rocked!  The boys pulled in a haul and were beyond cute!
2. Holden's birthday rocked.  The boy pulled in a haul and was beyond cute!

Now to sort out my storage issue...
