Friday Fotos and Some Awards

Since I didn't do wordless Wednesday this week I will post some pics today since I don't, as usual have a whole lot of interesting things to say today. Except I will throw this out there.... Cat Stevens rules. I mean he just rules. Why did he have to go and change his name to Yusluf and get kicked out of England? And what the hell is a Mona Bone Jackon? It just sounds dirty. I think I am officially iTunes' bitch since I had all good intent to go and buy the theme song from House (Ministry by the way) and spend exactly 99 cents but then in the recommendations was Cat Stevens?...hmmm I don't really get that but being someone who has little or no will power I ended up spending $30 on the Cat Stevens Box Set. Now I wanna get on the peace train and maybe live in a wigwam..I don't know I'm all confused. Curse you iTunes (picture me shaking my fist at the Apple logo).

Ok here are some of my favorite pics of this fall we were all over at E's mom's house painting pumpkins and eating lots and lots of food. All the while the big kids were painting my almost two year old's face. I joked on a previous post that this will be the picture that the prosecutor blows up as justification for why he chose to bludgeon me to death in my sleep, probably with a pumpkin, or a paint brush.


I laugh every time I see that...He hates me.


The next pic is on of me and my sister. Back when I was young and blond and tan.We used to try and see how far we could swing the porch swing before our Mom would start to yell. Nothing like the adrenaline rush of feeling like you might at any moment single handily bring down the house with a pump of your feet.

I realized I don't put pics of Sophie up very much, just adding to her belief that everyone else is loved more than her, so I thought I would put this one of the three oldest but Sophie is actually looking at the camera. I love pictures of people's backs and feet. This was taken over the Summer ...is it Summer yet??

I also love this picture of Lily and Nick, she barely wants to brush elbows with him at the dinner table but I know they will love each other one day. Or not....but I will always have this picture to remember how I bribed her to look like she loved him.

I also have been the recipient of two great awards from two great bloggers. So thank you thank you thank you. I have been slow to post them up here but I am loving them all the same. If I could figure out how to put them on the side of my blog I would but I really just figured out how to post in the future ...which is so cool. Now I don't have to pay the neighbor kid to come over here and hit "publish post" for me anymore!

The first one is from Diane over at Good Morning Glory, there are rules about having to name 10 honest things about myself but I think I gave you about 100 yesterday so stop being so greedy. Also I would pass it along but I love you all. really I do all the same.

The next one I got is from Life on the Goo Goo Ga Ga . I love to say that title out loud. She also gave me a great award that doesn't have any rules except to pass it along to other fellow bloggers , and like I said I have enough trouble trying to get my kids to believe I love them all the same but for different reasons so I am not even gonna attempt it here. Thanks ladies! If you all haven't been over there go now and check out their sites!!

Happy Weekend!!!

The blue face on your little one is hysterical! The expression is the icing on the cake. :)

Sprite's Keeper said...

Oh, such adorable pictures! And congrats on your awards!

Vic said...

Great pictures! (the blue one will probably feature in a therapy moment somewhere in the future, but SO cute!)

Dr Zibbs said...

Thanks for all of the comments on my blog. I just gave you a shout out. And accidently spelled the name of your blog wrong.

The Dental Maven said...

Congrats Girl! And have a good weekend!

lisa24n7 said...

That blue face is precious! Congrats on your awards! :o)

Casey said...

Congrats on the awards, they're very well-deserved! I love the pictures, especially the one of Sophie looking back at the camera. Oh, and the pumpkin picture is priceless, I hope he doesn't bludgeon you but I can see why he might. My two year old hates me too, don't worry.

robin said...

Love these pix!
And the look on your poor son's face is priceless!

Beth said...

Congrats on the awards. And I love Mr. Blueface. I like how they paid close attention to his lips. Details are important!

Debbie said...

Congrats on your awards and I love the photos!

Captain Dumbass said...

Bwah ha ha! Sorry, I didn't get past the blue face.

C.S. Perry said...

Ah jeez. Look at that face painting.
Man...I can't wait for my son to get big enough to hate me for junk I'm going to do to him.

Shangrila said...

That first pic of your son rocks! (Totally worth him hating you-lol!) The other pics are great, too. Tell Sophie that she's lovely and I love her best-lol!

Lola Takes Pictures said...

You've got some great pics here. I really like them. I think you should print them all and put them in those cool frames with the many openings-- you know which one I mean...I say it like this cause hysterectomy/ perimenopause brain rules right now--especially your little blue-faced baby. He's adorable!

Congrats on the awards.

Chris said...

The blue face one reminds me of Braveheart.

The black and white one with Lilly is a classic!

Katie said...

That sweet little blue face is just priceless!

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

What wonderful pictures! Love the blue face.

Diane said...

i love that you just love music. any kind, as long as it does it for ya. so you should be doing Musical Monday and post your fav cat stevens. :)

i love all the pics! esp the one of the backs with sophie looking over her shoulder!

Jennifer said...

I have one of those kids, too, the kind that thinks everyone is loved more. I've given up on correcting her and just say "Yep, you're right. We love you way less, but we've decided to keep you around to take care of the dog."

(Okay, I better start worrying about getting blugeoned, too, or at least start saving for her future therapy bills)

dizzy mom said...

I thought my daughter was the only one with that "look".

Now for the blue face...Has Dr. Zibbs' wifey seen that pic. Just saying, you might want to take it down before she connects the dots. It doesn't take a genius to notice the resemblence. (I mean the blue. I am in no way implying that your son looks like a yak.)

DeeMarie said...

Love the blue face!!!!!!!! Congrats on the awards!

The Me/ The Wife/ The Mom said...

LOL! Love that blue face!

You deserve the awards...you are fabulous :0
