Snapshot a Day (10/14)

Happy Monday, everyone!

I hope everyone had a good weekend. is anyone off today for Columbus Day (here in the US, anyway)?

Logan's school is having a teacher in-service day today, so he and I are home. I'm working, but at least it's from home. Biggrin

It's been rainy and ugly since late Saturday, but I'm hoping we get a chance to go see our new pup this evening! And then I'll have something fun to share.

Take care everyone!

Best,
GiGi

Hope you're enjoying having Logan home! I would love to see pics of your pup when you get to see him! Smile I got some stuff shipped to me (my lighting equipment, etc.) and wheeeeeeeeeee, set it up and just tried it out. The kids were busy playing with the boxes, so here's my snap of the day -- taken with the new light stand and a speedlight bounced into the umbrella. I have a ways to go to figure this all out, but it was fun to set it up and of course the kids love the boxes!

Sadie ... is Randy wearing a Batman costume?! they both look like they are having the time of their lives in this shot! Biggrin

This isn't the pup that we chose (I'll share pics of that boy on the Friday flashback), but this was my favorite shot from visiting the puppies:

Logan was in puppy heaven! There are 9 pups in this litter and all 9 of them made a bee-line for my boy. He just couldn't get enough and we could barely get him to leave the place when it was time.

What am I saying? It was hard for ME to leave when it was time. There is just something about puppies that makes you feel good and who wants THAT to end?! Biggrin

Best,
GiGi

Aw, GiGi, your pup shots here and on FB are so adorable they make ME want one! And I'm not really a dog lover. (Cough, cough, sorry folks.) Really so, so sweet! How awesome for Logan! Is the one he's holding the one you're getting, or do you not know yet?

LOL, Sadie, soooo cool to see kids having such fun together!

Thanks Tracy! This is not the pup we're getting. If you look at the album on fb, the one on Carlos' lap is the one we're getting. Smile They were ALL so sweet though, it was hard to choose.

Posting this week is difficult. Drew is home on vacation and Carson is on fall break from school. Most of it is on Facebook though!!

Yay for the lighting equipment!! Carson loves drawing on boxes too Smile

Oh those puppies are killing me!!

Thanks ladies. Those moments have seemed so rare lately due to the craziness of going going going. We have decided to start staying home more often. I think since we have (just in the last two days) my kids have got along so much better!

Tracy- NOT a dog lover!??!?!?! lol! Just teasing!
GiGi- I want all nine!

Steph - thanks for popping in, especially when time is hard to come by for you. Enjoy this week with all your guys with you!

Sadie - we did that too. We have 2 nights a week now that we go NO WHERE. Logan needs those nights to be able to have free time after homework. Most evenings by the time he's done w/ homework, we have to rush off somewhere (to judo, piano, soccer, etc). But we've cleared our schedules to where two whole nights we all stay home. It is good to have unscheduled time. We all feel better after those nights. Best of luck to you guys in keeping your scheduled under control!

I'll start here with catching up. We went to Crater of Diamonds State Park. You can dig for diamonds and what you find you can keep. We found a couple that looked like diamonds, but no dice. It was still fun though, and the boys were in heaven digging in the mud!

Well, I think that, for us, we know we aren't going to be here forever, so we want to make sure we hit these things before it's too late Smile there really are so many awesome Things to do and beautiful things to see here in AR. ...Though getting there can be quite the drive sometimes Wink
