Day 44

I am exhausted from my trip so I tried to throw together a picture. Bren had friends over and played poker so I tried something with the chips. Nothing was working, lighting was off and I just wasn't into it. 

So you know what I do when I can't get a pic to look good... b&w conversion! 

Day 43

Our last day in Portland. Peyton's last day with my cousin Tyler who she called cute boy all weekend.

"Should I hold his hand?"

Totally stinkin adorable.

Day 42

My very sweet Grandparents. <3 This was taken 09/25/10 outside of Bob's Red Mill.

Just extras, to show where we were. I didn't have much time to take pictures. :) I would have loved to get better pictures of the water wheel, but again, didn't have time.

Day 41

Taken 09/24/10.
Isn't she beautiful??? :)

And a bonus picture because she was SO dang happy..


Day 40

My Dad, Peyton and I went to Portland and got back yesterday so sorry for the delay in pictures. Here is one from 09/23/10.

This was her first time meeting my cousin Tyler and it was love at first sight. She couldn't get enough of him. It was totally adorable. She had her first crush for sure. :)

Day 39

My brother and his wife are in town so we took a group picture tonight. While I wasn't behind the camera when the pic was taken I did set it up and push the button. Selt timers are the best. 

Here is our silly bunch. :)

Day 38

It was getting late and I had yet to take a picture today, so I took one of the pretty favor from my friend Holly's bridal shower on Sunday (remember, the one I made the fruit kabobs for?) I decided to play around with my focus and DOF. My goal - focus on the word thank you and have a bit of a blurry tea cup in the background. I think I succeeded. AND.... pictures are starting to look a bit better inside which is good, because fall is here.

Day 37

Kitty Vs. Elmo

Day 36


I made fruit kabobs for my wonderful friend Holly's bridal shower today. Aren't they pretty?? I'm crossing snack off my list. Peyton kept snacking on all the grapes as we were making them. :)

Here's a shot of the whole thing, just because.

Day 35

We made silly faces after breakfast today so I snapped away. Sadly, they are awfully yellow. My white balance was set to manual.. maybe that's not the best for inside?

She's still cute - even if the color is off.

Day 34

Today (well.. yesterday!) we went to the Puyallup Fair with our friends Charity and Cole. 

We pet goats. 

We made MUSIC! (crossing off my check list!)

Day 33

Day 30

Here's one for the 100 list. 
My Step dad has a beer bottle collection that runs the perimeter around the top of an outdoor greenhouse he built my Mom. Tom is big into beer, including brewing. Which he got my husband into. Which benefits me because we always have yummy beer. :)

Day 29

Having a snack and watching the Hawks whoop some Niner bum! :)

I tried to fancy up our normal eggs in a hole breakfast by making it star shaped. It worked ok on this one, the other two looked awful.It still tasted good though. :)
(Taken 9/11/10)

Beautiful eyes. <3

Day 24

My husbands Grandpa recently passed away. We also lost his wondeful wife Helen 5 years earlier. My father in law and his sisters have been working at clearing out all the old memories in the house. Who gets what? What goes where? The year after Helen passed, Wally gave all the grandchildren one of Helen's music boxes. She has hundreds of them. Peyton and I went to "Great Grandpa's" house today and picked out a music box for her. Something about this one stood out to me. I am hoping this will be something Peyton will treasure forever. I am not counting this towards my list (although it could be old or music) becasue I want this on it's own. This is a memory. A treasure.

Day 23

This little guy is a staple in Washington. The first ones are coming out and lazing around my driveway. Yuck! The funniest thing was that Peyton was getting anxious while I was trying to get the perfect picture of this slimy guy that she reached down to pick it up (and probably throw it?) but freaked out and started crying right after she touched it. Not what she expected I suppose.
(taken 09/06/10 - Labor Day)

Nothing from my 100 list today. Just a pretty snapshot of my beautiful girl loving the pool at Nana's pool party today. I love this girl.

Day 17

My Wreck This Journal - before I start wrecking it tonight! :)

Day 16

We tried training underwear on Peyton today (well, 08/30/10) and we ran around outside to show Daddy. We didn't try them long as we had a memorial service to run too but I figure on my day's off I'm going to start the days out at least in these rather than a diaper. Not actively trying to potty train yet, but this way hopefully she starts to learn when she's going potty. Plus, she just looks adorable in her "iiig irl unndies" as Peyton would say.

Day 15

A very crummy picture of my beautiful cousin that I hadn't seen in almost 5 years and my beautiful daughter. It was bright and the sun was in there eyes. It's the only pic I took that day so it's the one going in here. Oops. Taken 08/29/10. I'm a bit behind due to a funeral on Monday and a super busy weekend.

Day 10

Not a lot of time to take pictures today so I snuck a quick one of Peyton. It looked a lot less blurry on the camera. I'm lost. Anyways, it was too blurry so I played around and did a B&W conversion. It looks alright. Eh.

Day 9

What is funner than popping bubbles on a beautiful day?

Peyton with her Grandpa Bobo! (My wonderful Dad!) She adores him which makes my heart so happy!

Day 6

My Mom, Aunt, Peyton and I all went to lunch at a place we love in Marysville today, Attic Secrets Cafe & Tea (go like them because they rock!)

I forgot to take a picture of my lunch as I had planned because I was too hungry and dug in before remembering what I wanted to do. So I took some shots of the sugar bowl instead.

Day 5

Yep - thats my sweet girl. She's blurry, prob not exposed right but who cares. She is stinking adorable.

And if anyone is wondering, this is her "the babies on the bus say waaah waah waah" movement. She always scrunches her nose up and giggles and moves her elbows and arms all crazy like.

I love her.

Day 4

My daughter does gymnastics and right now we are doing that on Wed evenings. Next month I think we are going to switch to Monday evenings though. Peyton loves it! Tonight she figured out how to hang and swing on the rings.

I am usually busy helping her during class so I don't get any chance to get pictures. Today I took some pics when we got home.
