Andddd....we're back.

Ugh, it's been kind of a long hiatus.  The past few weeks have been crazy busy.  I have the pictures to show for it, BUT I've been slow at getting them edited and put up.  So, we'll start with what I do have. :)

This past weekend was one of my oldest and bestest {what, that's a word! lol} friend's bridal shower and bachelorette party.  I'm beyond excited for her to get married, and this was the first event to really make it seem real.  

We started out with these red velvet cupcakes.  O.M.G.  Let me just say they were yummy.  And crappy for my diet, but worth it.
We had tons of tissue poms and a few yarn balls.  Those were a big joke to us when we were making them, so I was happy a few turned out!
 
 I saw this idea on pinterest, and we had to try it.  You get a styrofoam ball, cupcake liners and some pins.  Push the pin throw the liner and into the ball and voila!  I didn't realize how time consuming would be.  The poor bride's younger sister and some sore fingers I'm sure after finishing them.  She did a great job though!
After the bridal party was completed, it was time for the real fun to begin.  My friend has always been into fitness and was a personal trainer for awhile, so what better theme than 80s workout?!?  I about DIED when I saw everyone dressed it.  Beyond hilarious.  What is it about a ridiculous costume that gets you in the mood to act ridiculous.  
We had these signs that we had so much fun with throughout the night.  
This one was one of my favs.
This sign was able to be used often throughout the night! 
Nothing better than a night with the girls!  Too bad it usually leads to a severe shortage on sleep. :)

Toddle Along Tuesday | Bloopers

It happens to the best of us.  We are all ready for a photo op.  The stage is set.  The clothes are picked.  The props are ready.  You have them all ready to go, lift the camera and then...what???  You look at your LCD screen and chuckle.  That wasn't exactly the shot you had in mind.  Sometimes those "oops" shots turn out to capture the moment just perfectly.  

We took a family vacation to Jamaica when Kendall was a baby.  She was playing so cute in the sand.  Right as I snapped, the poor kid took a nosedive in the sand.  The result? Picture gold.

Sydney was all poised with a heart wreath for Valentine's Day.  She was holding it adorably.  That is, until it was time for the picture.  Then she decided it was better made as a necklace.  You know what? I think she is right. 

This is one of my all time favorite blooper pictures.  This was from our 2010 Christmas card picture attempt.  Sydney was smiling away the whole time, ready for her close up.  Kendall was a little resistant, but felt the need to give her sister a hug.  Right as she did...Sydney had the urge to pinch Kendall's nose and not let go.  So, I did what any mother would do.

I took a picture.


This week's Toddle Along Tuesday topic is photo bloopers! Link up the funniest photo of you, your baby, or your pet that you can find! There are no rules except that you link up a post (old or new), that is relevant :)

An Easter Wrap Up

I got home from work Friday night, and we got busy on one of the most important things on the To Do list for the weekend.  Dye Easter Eggs!! I had it made because my mom had the eggs all boiled up and ready for me. :)
Kendall is a seasoned vet at this, and was all excited to get started.
Sydney caught on quick! I love her face in this one.  I can just imagine what her brain is processing.
The finished products!
After they dried, Saturday morning the girls adorned them with stickers.  Kendall was very proud of hers!
After that, we got on the road to spend the first Easter gathering at my aunt's house.
I think they were looking for the Easter Bunny.
  
We got home that afternoon, to find the Easter Bunny came early!  Unfortunately, Sydney was going on no nap, and was not into it.  She was more wanting to cuddle in with Daddy. 
 
 
After Kendall thoroughly went through both baskets, she was ready to hunt for the eggs.
The next morning we headed over the the in laws for another Easter.  The girls were spoiled again.  Of course. :)
I love Sydney's face in the picture below.

You may have seen in the past, or on the tab above, that I am trying to take part in this project.  Basically, you take a photo a week, and each week corresponds with a letter.  We'll go through the alphabet twice.

I've been a little behind at updating, so I'll play catch up.

Toddle Along Tuesday - Favorite Picture

I have thousands of pictures of the girls, I bet.  I hold up my camera, or phone, and Kendall will turn her face, while Sydney drops what she's doing and yells, "CHEEEEESE!"  They know by now.

Every single one of the pictures is special to me.  I can look back and remember the fun we were having (or the fights they were having), the laughter, the joy.  It's almost impossible to pick just one.

This picture though captures the nature of their relationship.  It's not perfect.  They aren't looking at the camera.  But, it's just so right for them.  It shows the love they have for each other.  How I'll try to get them to do one thing, but they just want to stop and cuddle.  To me, it shows the love between two little sisters.
That, and who doesn't love little kids in matching clothes? I'm a sucker for it.  :)


I'm excited to announce that I will be cohosting with Melissa at Growing up Geeky next week for Toddle Along Tuesday.  The theme will be bloopers.  Be sure to check back and link up next week!
