Snapshot a Day (03/28) & Flashback Friday!

Happy happy Friday one and all! I hope that, like me, you are looking forward to a fun-filled weekend! Logan has soccer tomorrow and we're going to be doing some celebrating (Logan got a superior rating on his viola solo)., the weather is supposed to be downright lovely, and I just can't WAIT to get started on the fun!

I'll be back shortly to with my snap of the day and my shares for the week.

I hope you guys will join me in posting a few shots from your week!

Best,
GiGi

I'm going to start with my snap for today. And it was a QUICK snap w/ my iPad:

Logan got a I (superior) rating on his viola solo this week! But the silly boy forgot to show us the results last night. He has a big vocabulary test today and he was more preoccupied with that than sharing his good news. I got to see it this morning, but Carlos wasn't going to get to see it until tonight, so I snapped this quick iPad shot.

here's another snap from Saturday's soccer game (one that I haven't already shared):

I am LOVING having the new camera for soccer! and the back button focusing has been a God-send as well!

here's a couple of iPad snaps of Logan dressed up and waiting to play at Solo & Ensemble on Wednesday:

this one is from afterward

I've been taking a lot of food pics lately.
these are tarrow root fries:

and here's another shot of the cupcakes I made yesterday (which Logan *loved*):

Hopefully I'll have even more to share next week!

Take care everyone!

Interesting, GiGi -- tarrow root fries!

I have to ask, are those silicone cupcake liners? They look it. Do you like them, if so?

And AWESOME news about Logan's results! Good for him! You must be sooooo proud! Smile

Nora's school has "crazy hair day" today, so here she is:
Crazy Hair Day

And in other shots, this is one I took this morning after dropping her off, and I just liked the watercolour/texture effect on it, so:

Another of my favourite leaves (crazy me):

Loved the day she figured out how to skip a bar on the monkey bars. She was so excited, she squealed right across the playground, "Mommy, I SKIPPED A BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!" LOL. What a kid.

And that was also the day Micah learned to balance on the balance beam all by himself. He did it about a dozen times, he was so thrilled.

One day Micah wanted me to draw pictures on balloons and then take photos with him hiding behind them. My artistic abilities are severely limited, but he loved this one:

And lastly, my niece at my SIL's baby shower last weekend:

Tracy - the tarrow root fries were a HUGE hit! Logan doesn't even really like REGULAR french fries, but he ate my serving of them (I didn't even make him any b/c he is so picky) and then begged for more - so I made him THREE more servings which he polished off and asked for more (which will have to wait until I can pick up another tarrow root). The cupcakes are NOT in silicone cupcake liners - just really bright paper that I doubled up in the muffin pan. I have some silicone bakeware - bread pan and cake pans - and I like it a lot. But I don't currently have the cupcake liners.

LOVE LOVE LOVE Nora's crazy hair! Micah's balloon head really made me smile! And your niece looks SO focused on her cupcake. LOVE it!

TFS,
GiGi

Tracy- The balloon pic made me giggle! What a fun idea! Nora's hair is a HOOT!
GiGi- I can only imagine how proud you are of your sweet boy!

I don't have any on flickr from my big camera, but here's some from IG:

Tracy ... it strikes me that Ruthie is on a growth spurt - she just looks longer! As lovely as ever (inside and out), but definitely LONGER. Love the shot of Randy making his sandwich - the hat is what gets me. Biggrin Hope you guys enjoyed your week off last week!
