I made a big pot 'o chili saturday.
it is the only thing I can make that the hubs actually likes to eat.
(thank you Judy Holland for that recipe you wrote on the blue index card. I'm still using it a year later...)


after seeing several ads and reading several blog posts about the Canvas People and their FREE canvases made from your precious photos, I decided to check em out. I'm here to tell you...
it's legit.
when I ordered mine a month ago, they were offering free 8 x 10 canvases (all you pay is shipping) with an option to size up to larger canvases for a fraction of what they'd normally cost.
I chose to size up.
I paid 9.99 for an 11 x 14 of my favorite most recent pic of my kiddos (taken by the fabulous Erin Schmidt) and it arrived a few days ago-

I'm seriously loving it,
and yes- I stepped outside to try to get better lighting, but it's been pretty yucky/rainy/gray here for a while now.

of course, when I turned around, someone had snuck outside behind me

haven't decided where to put it yet.
for now, it's living next to the LOVE sign on the piano.

we celebrated 3 more birthdays last night with the hubs family at a Japanese steakhouse in town

E LOVED watching our food being cooked

singing happy birthday to Diane (hubs aunt), Blake (hubs cousin's son), and Maxine (hubs grandmother)

I'm in the kitchen.
cooking heating up food for E and O for dinner.
I call them into the kitchen to eat.
in they come.
sometime in their walk from the living room to the kitchen, an object changes hands.
E decides she's going to share a toy with MM, who is playing happily in the dining room in her bouncy seat.
as I'm at the table with O and E in the kitchen, I hear MM gagging.
bad, bad sound.
I run into the dining room, and I find this in her hand...

well, I find the glasses in her hand.
that little torn off part in front?
I found that in the back of her throat after i went in digging.
Thank you, E, for being a sweet big sister, only-
next time, let's not give the babe something she'll eat that's not food.

I just love the front of this cheerios box, don't you?
makes me want to cut that heart out and do something with it.


and lastly,
here's a pic of someone who didn't want to go to bed tonight.
she's hiding.
but i found her.

Loving you blog and your poses are so great. Love the first outfit, although I think you belong in the dining room. I think I'm going to try some new locations. Wonder what I'd wear to compliment our bar and wine refrigerator? Something sexy, I presume!

Great outfits! I think Mary Martin was definitely the cutest prop :)

I'll be checking out the Canvas People, though I don't know how to decide on just one print!

love the last dress and the green tunic/dress with the chicken alfredo - LOL - your pictures crack me up - your personality just shines through!

Oh you are so cute! I love the last outfit the best but then I always think Mama's look the best with their babies on their hips!
And that pic of your kiddos is so adorable!
