At MOM's group on Wednesday one of the little girls was loving the muffins for snack! I am a sucker for cute pictures, so I grabbed the camera and started shooting away. She has the best expressions and the most intense eyes!

Your turn...


Stephanie over at Adventuresinbabywearing has given us another tag. This one is Shoes we can't live without.

So I will start with my houseslippers. Red fuzzy slippers. Everyone needs a pair. With 3 little boys and 2 cats I never go into the kitchen with slippers on.

And for the everyday shoe. My Earth Shoe shoes. I love these things! However, I only wear them in cold weather. So up they will go for the summer months and out come the Keds.

And of course..the Keds. I have to have 3 pair every season. The pair to the far right is the outside yard/yardsale keds. The middle pair is the everyday/jeans pair (they do need a quick wash), and the pair to the left is the 'nice' dress pair. Next year I rotate. The everyday pair becomes the outside pair, the 'nice' pair becomes the everyday pair and I get a new pair for the 'nice' pair. Insane..yes.

As I am taking the pictures of my shoes, hubby walks by in HIS shoes he can't live with out.
I snapped a picture. Here are his Samba. He searched like 4 stores till he found them.

Old pictures of the big boys... I found some of my favorite pictures of the big boys and had to share.

The boys new bikes!

Since it has gotten nice and warm around here we decided to get the boys 'big' bikes. We had a few trikes, but poor Adison's knees where around his chin.
Donnie had the bikes sitting out and we had the boys cover their eyes.

First peek!

Once again I have been tagged my Stephanie.. this one is about my most prozed possessions.

This one was a little hard. I am a collector (aka packrat), so I have lots of stuff!

But then I started looking around and saw a few things that I would go after in a fire. So I included them in the list of prize possessions.

This is a painting done by my paternal grandmother. I was the baby of 19 grandchildren and when I was born she painted this for my parents. Not sure if you can see it well, but there is one flower in the front that is clearer and bigger than the rest. That is me. I am the new flower in her garden. This hangs over my fireplace with 2 of her water colors on either side.

This is another prize possession. These dolls are Madame Alexander dolls from the 'Little Women' series. My husbands maternal grandmother collected dolls her whole life. When we got married she and my mother in law got these dolls beacuse they matched us; hubby green eyes and brown hair and me brown eyes and hair. They then made the clothes to match our wedding attire! The dress is so like mine its scary! I was so honored that my mother in law and grandmother in law would do them for me. They are beautiful and so speical to me!

And the last of my possessions that I treasure most are all the pictures of my kids. I have a very bad memory and want to be able to know what my kids look like every moment of life. I have had their picture taken every month of their first year and very often after that.

Thanks Stephanie for another great TAG!
