Well I made it 2 months

But that is going to be it for me. I've just been too tired and sick to even consider picking up the camera for the last week and it won't be ending any time soon. For those of you who don't know, I found out we are expecting #3. I've been fortunate the morning sickness isn't as bad as it was with the girls but I still don't feel great and I'm so exhausted. I'll keep checking everyone elses blogs though, I really enjoy all of your pictures. I'll probably give this another shot in a year or so when things settle down a bit.

Day 59 - 62

This gets me caught up for all but todays which is still on the camera. I'm having a hard time with this as you can see. It's not taking the pictures that I"m having a hard time with, it's getting them processed and posted in a timely manner.

Day 62 of 365 - I was just hanging out in the kitchen waiting for water boil, these are my salt and pepper shakers. I love Alice In Wonderland and have a ton of collectibles like this.
Day 61 of 365 - Hailey was being so sweet on this night. She was just laying around the floor playing with her toes (and trying to eat them). I love little baby feet, I wish I could keep her little forever.
Day 60 of 365 - I caught him! I got my new speedlight on this day and was playing around with it, and for the first time ever I got a picture of him with his eyes open. This is my other furbaby Loki.
Day 59 of 365 - Lazy mommy day...I didn't feel like cooking so we got In and Out Burger, so good. This picture is making me really hungry now.

Days 55-58 of 365

Day 58 of 365 - I'm planning on doing a photo collage on the walls so I decided to go through my old photo albums to see if there were any older pictures worth using . But there weren't the pictures are horrible, it made me realize how far I have come (but I still have a long way to go!). Maybe I'll see if I can salvage any in photoshop. If not, oh well they are still precious memories.Day 57 of 365 - I might be the only person on the planet who likes these things, but I look forward to them every year. I was so excited to see that Walmart is already putting out their Valentine's candy. Yum!
Day 56 of 365 - We decided to go up to the mountain to go sledding today. Man was it cold. The snow wasn't really snow anymore it was ice so walking in it was a total pain, and Hailey hated being all bundled up. But Ashleigh had so much fun sledding with Eddie, it was actually his first time ever sledding and he had a lot of fun too.
Day 55 of 365 - "How many, many feet you meet". My oldest LOVES this book, she has it memorized cover to cover. Every night instead of asking me to read her a book she asks if she can read this book to me.

Day 54 of 365

Wow don't you all feel lucky, I'm posting 2 days in a row lol. I got my hair cut a few days ago so I thought I'd show it off. Although I'm not 100% sure I like it yet, this is the first time I've had bangs since middle school and they are driving me bananas, I feel like my hair is constantly in my eyes.

Days 49-53

Ok I am resolving to post more often. I was off to such a good start but kind of starting let myself fall behind in the postings. So as of now I will attempt to post at least every couple days, not once a week.

Day 53 of 365 - Fridays are my favorite days because we get our Winder Farms delivery. Every Thursday night we put a cooler on our front porch and when we wake up it is full of yummy things, fresh from a farm in Utah. This is my favorite, we order this every week, it's the best apple juice I have ever had! Of course the stuff is a bit pricey but sooooo worth it, not just because it tastes good but the convenience of having food delivered right to your door.Day 52 of 365 - Happy New Year! We let Ashleigh stay up and watch the festivities with us. Well with me anyhow Eddie had to work as always, he always seems to get stuck with mid shift on New Years Eve. I was really surprised she made it until midnight and still didn't want to go to bed, of course she cried because she wanted to see the real fireworks not the "stupid tv fireworks".
Day 51 of 365 - I'm shocked this picture even came out at all. I took this during Hailey's 3 hour nap in my arms. Every time I tried to lay her down she would wake up so I just let her sleep on me. Of course I was rather bored so I picked up my camera and started shooting with one hand lol.
Day 50 of 365 - Hailey let me put her hair up in piggy tails today.

Of course it didn't last very long.
Day 49 of 365 - I know, I know enough with the pictures of the cat already. I was really trying to get a picture of my other cat, Loki, but for some reason he always closes his eyes even when I'm NOT using flash. Loki has the prettiest blue eyes but I can not get a good picture of them, so you will have to settle for Tweek again, he doesn't mind modeling for me as you can see.

Days 38 - 48

Oh man it has been hectic around here. Hailey's 1 year molars are coming in so she is not sleeping much at all and just insists on being held non-stop. It's been nice having Eddie home but since he'll be working nights when he goes back to work he's been sleeping most of the day, lucky duck I wish I could sleep too.

These pictures catch me up until the 27th. I have pictures for the 28th and today on the camera and will upload them probably tomorrow. I need to get to bed and enjoy the hour of sleep I might get before Hailey wakes up screaming.

Day 48 of 365- Nothing special I was just playing around with the camera a bit while I was waiting for our frozen pizza to cook (the meal of a very sleep deprived mom).

Day 47 of 365- This was Eddie's Christmas present. It's a beer stein with the characters from World of Warcraft on it. I was actually pretty impressed with the art on it. I'm not sure what he's going to do with it, it's not like he drinks that much beer but he really wanted it (I guess he can put his coke in it)Day 46 of 365 - Christmas morning. This was such a fun year. Hailey LOVED the stockings, more than the presents. She kept stealing things from Ashleigh's stocking and putting in her own lol. She had more fun putting things in and taking them back out then doing anything else all day long. For Ashleigh this was the first year that she really understood the whole Santa thing, she kind of got it last year but not really. It was very magical for her, more than anything though she just wanted to make sure the reindeer ate their carrots she wasn't nearly as concerned about Santa's cookies. All in all it was a good day, we only had one melt down from Ashleigh because Hailey got a stuffed turtle and she didn't.
Day 45 of 365 - I wish I had set this picture up by the tree so there'd be a prettier backdrop. But the stinking cats kept trying to drink the milk, and I was afraid they'd spill it in the living room. Maybe next year.
Day 44 of 365 - Making snickerdoodles. I wanted to do something other than the chocolate chip and sugar cookies we make every year. I don't know if I'll make them again no one wanted to eat them but me, so I ended up leaving a big plate out for our milk man. Ashleigh at least had fun making them.

Day 43 of 365 - LOVING my new camera and lens!!
Day 42 of 365 - Just playing around again with the new camera and lens....still waiting for my speedlight, very impatiently I might add.
Day 41 of 365 - Our Christmas wreath. I didn't realize until I looked at the picture how bent out of shape it is. This poor thing has been through so many moves and the scarf has been glued back on so many times.
Day 40 of 365 - My new lens arrived this day. My wonderful husband got me the new 50mm 1.4 AF-S lens. It was love at first shot!

Day 39 of 365 - Our Christmas card picture for this year. I was running way behind for cards this year and never even got them printed and in the mail, everyone had to settle for e-cards. I'm usually so on the ball with these things too, I don't know what happened this year.
Day 38 of 365 - Got my new camera! The Nikon D90...this is one of the first shots I took with it, just a snapshot. So far so good, it's taken a bit of getting used to but I'm really liking it, especially with the new lens. I really can't wait to try the speedlight out with it. And Eddie is loving playing with the D40...he actually read Understanding Exposure. I bought the book a few months ago for me and haven't had the chance to read much in it and he got to sit down and finish it in one night, that's the benefit of being on night shift I guess on his days off he gets to hang out for hours at a time with no kids awake to bother him.

Running behind

Hi everyone! Sorry I'm so behind I haven't even had the chance to sit down at my computer and process pictures, I probably have a good 300 or so pictures to process. I WILL get caught up though, probably this weekend sometime. Eddie is off work for a few days so I plan on escaping upstairs and letting him deal with the kids...mwa ha ha ha.
