I heart Faces - "Hilarious Outtakes"



Now we all have those pictures that you normally do not show.. And From Kids esp. there are always outtakes.. This week at I heart faces it's "Hilarious Outtakes" and we can have up to 5 pictures in this weeks post instead of the normal 1..

Here I said, Hey Lexi why don't you stand next to the shark and we can see how tall you are.. She did but had other ideas about posing for the picture.. Silly Girl


Here Samantha was done with Pictures. apparently I never learn and just kept snapping, But If I stopped I would not have gotten this outtake..


What stop for a picture.. but I'm eating Cotton Candy!

My 2009 in Pictures and a few words (Part 1)

So I have thinking for awhile now, since 2009 is the year i really got into photography I will go through all my pictures through the year and pick out some favorites. So here goes.. around June the pictures should start getting better in quality that is when I got my awesome new camera...


My little cousin Audrey made her first communion


My mom and I went to see David Cook Live~~!! And Yes he is as cute in person



We also did went to American Idol Live for the 3rd year in a row.. This time was the best ever~ Not only did we figure out if you get to the arena around 1 you get to meet some of the idols on tour~ For Free! I met Alison,Matt, Kris. It was so great, I got my CD signed by 3 of them and got my picture with Kris and Matt.

I had my old Olympus camera at the David Cook show above and my new Nikkon Camera at the idols show. See the difference in quality of the pics..Not to mention we had great seats. I love presale codes..













Went to the Erie County Fair..as I do at least once every year.. I saw a cow being born this year..not this cow, trust me you don't want to see that actual cow birth in pictures..


I also learned alot about my new camera this summer. I learned how to
use the continuse action on my Nikkon, I tested it out for the first time while babysitting my 3 favorite boys. Who love when I take their picture and have no trouble posing for the camera..lol.. They really are great boys and have great parents. I work with their dad. Him and his wife call me their 6th family member.

The oldest Jason who just turned 10 has diabetes he has had it since 7. So they do not trust many people alone with him while they are away. I learned everything I needed to know to make sure I could take care of him if anything happens and know the signs and what he can and can not eat. He also has Cialic which means he can't have wheat either, poor kids got a double whammy there. But he takes it in stride. He is a great kid. As is his brothers Andrew 8 and Chris 6. Chris is the funniest little guy you will ever meet. He loves the dress in button up shirts and dress pants. Belt you name it. He even went to Kindergarten in a Tux once. Funny kid. He calls it dressing Handsome. And He Loves Costumes He has gone through a Firefighter stage,Jedi,Indiana Jones. and now he is a Yankee player. Mind you he does not play baseball but he wears the full on Yankees uniform with cleats and the socks and a Yankees hat. Andrew is also a great kid.. He's stuck in the middle hes got a great
heart.




Below are some pictures of the boys at our Works Backyard Bash This Fall. It was just before it started to get cold and our last few nice days of weather. Our Boss won it at a charity auction, and 3 players from the Buffalo Sabres were there to take pictures and sign pucks for the kids. Jason is with Kaleta in one of the pics below. Chris is down there in his Yankee get up with a fellow fan, My Damien. And Jason and Andrew are enjoying some cotton candy..






Since this is getting a little long, I'll end it here for now. Part 2 to come tomorrow~

Christmas is Apon Us..


(Me and Damien Sept. 09)

And I have no spare minutes! Work has been nuts. Yes We all knew working at a internet based retailer that Christmas is our busiest time of year.. This year people are spending like crazy! I think this is our busiest Christmas in the 4 years that I worked here. So hence the very short post today.

I have been working like crazy to make a little extra for the holidays. and really I think im starting to burn myself out.. I worked Last Monday 9am-8pm, last Friday 9am-8pm. Saturday I babysat, Sunday I worked 12pm-2:30pm tonight I work 8am-8pm. Tuesday through Thursday Normal 9-5. Friday is our work holiday party! Whoo Hoo!!
We did not have one last year due to the economy being so bad, So I can not wait for that!

One thing that got me this past week. When I was working at our outlet store out in the southtownes. And my Ex-Boyfriend's Cousin came up to me and started talking. This is the boyfriend I had for oh 2 odd years right before Damien almost 9 years ago now. In fact I left Adam for Damien. I am not the kind that has 2 guys hanging and things between me and Adam were going down hill for quite some time. I was very unhappy and when I met Damien and we clicked I broke it off with Adam.

Well Anyway, She came up to me after leaving the store to ask if I ever went out with Adam, I confirmed: Why Yes I did. And we got to talking. Seems Adam is now married with a baby of his own. She showed me a picture of this adorable little looked no more then one year old.

Now I'm not going to lie, that got to me a little. Here I am desperately wanting that Ring ( now I don't need anything fancy, it can be fake for all I care, I just want the promise of being his Wife) and to have a baby of my own. Now don't get me wrong I don't in any way want Adam, We would have been miserable together. Or more likely I would be miserable. I will go further on that another post.

But I so want to be a mom. I am going to be 30 in June and I think I am getting that ticking feeling from my biological clock that all women talk about. Not to mention I love kids and they generally love me right back.

I hope that 2010 brings me my Dreams of starting our family.. Being a Wife and a mother.. I am so ready! and If come March 8th ( Damien and I's 9th Anniversary) I do not get asked a certain question, I might as well ask him, It is going to be 2010 after all!

Whew, this got a little longer then expected!

Weekend Fun with The Deavors November Edtion

So our Friends the Deavors came up from PA this past weekend. It was great to see them again! We took Lexi to Chuck-E-Chesse on Saturday and she has a ball! I have to admit we all did!


















Then on Sunday we took her to the mall to ride the Horsies also known as a Carousel. They also have a Climbing area for kids where they can climb and play on HUGE cars and truck, that are made out of rubberish stuff. Who knew something Free can make her so Happy. She is also learning to do her letters and she was so proud when she finally got S right.

















I love that little Girl SO MUCH! We have such a good time when they are in town. Can't wait to see them again soon!
