334/365: McQueen

Oliver got a new little toy for the iPad.
Josh got it for him, so I am thinking it is a toy for him too.
I have to admit it is pretty cool to have a miniature of Lighting McQueen
racing along the virtual streets of Radiator Springs.
...the things they come up with these days.

333/365: McDonald's Tuesday

For a while now we have been going to McDonald's on Tuesdays with some friends.
I am not joking when I say that we spend hours there.
{hey, Mommies need playdates too}

Here is a photo of our McDonald's friends.

332/365: She Must Take After Her Dad

Josh can fall asleep anywhere.
Apparently, Audrey can too.
I caught this shot just as her thumb was falling away from her mouth.
I think I will cherish it forever.

It makes them, and me, oh so happy :)

323/365: Breaking Dawn!!!!

I have a really good husband.
He took me to see Breaking Dawn.
...and he didn't tease or complain in the process.

Yup, he's a keeper.

318/365: Cupcake Yummyness

The night before her birthday, and the day she was going to leave (very early in the morning), we had a little cupcake celebration for Kate.  

Happy Birthday my dear sister!  I'm so glad you came!!

Psst... this is what the rest of the cupcakes looked like.  YUM!

311/365: My Girl

Today I went searching for a place to take some photographs. 
Audrey agreed to be my model.
That is until I took the first shot.
"I'm done Mommy"

Admittedly, I was bugged.
I had timed our arrival just right to get the light that I wanted.
The field was dancing in the sunset.
Yet, she was still unwilling.
"Look, there are cows Mommy.  Can we feed them?"

I didn't realize until I got home later, after I loaded the pictures onto my computer, that I got pictures of her.... that defined her.

My girl loves to twirl.  

...and while I didn't end up getting an "awe" shot, 
I got one that tells me a lot about my little girl:
A girl who just had to have that specific dress because it was pretty. And it twirled.
A girl who still loves her ladybug rain boots, 
even though they are too small, and one boot is missing both antenna.
When I mentioned that her boots didn't quite match her dress, 
she looked at me like I was the one who was crazy.
A girl who demands on a daily basis to be dressed in dresses - 
yet she still gravitates towards sticks.
A girl who loves to have long flowing Rapunzel hair,  yet wants it pulled into a pony tail so that it will stay out of her face.

She has a strong personality, yes.... but she is my charming little girl.

310/365: My Buckeye Men

Josh recently went to Ohio to visit some family & came home with some fun stuff for the kids to wear...
They love dressing up like their Daddy.  
Especially Oliver.

308/365: Caught Sleeping...

Most of the time when I go in to get this little guy up from his nap, he is already awake.
Today he was not.  Lucky for me, my camera was near by.
