The Sound of Silence…

is not something I am accustomed to these days…*sigh*  =)

It was an insanely busy week… but I think I managed to capture enough shots that could be worked into Ashley’s Scavenger hunt…

I added a few extras this week … for my 365 (wink) … so much happened…  OK… fine…  I am hopeless!~ and I missed Sunday… so Sunday is Monday =)… hubby and I were scouting good picture locations for a wedding later in the week … he was one of the main photographers … =)

Sunday/Monday      148/365

this picture just melts me…

my first baby is such a little lady these days…

wish I could freeze time

Sunday / Monday          149/365

and this little monkey cracks me up … daily!

every year I miss something from last years stages…

and I love something about the here and now…

nobody can ever prepare your heart

for the mixed emotions of parenting…

Tuesday (my son took this shot with my phone)

so I guess it doesn’t count as my 365…

but I loved it…

I see this car Every Tuesday…

and it even has my name on it…

perhaps one day it will be mine…

maybe it is a sign?  right??  (ha ha ha ha ha)

Wednesday ~   Chore   150/365

our wonderful friends from Alberta Canada visited this week

she had a hard month…. (her mama passed away)

even though I knew this week was going to be busy

full of play practice, soccer practice, a special girl scout award night, preparing for a friends wedding …I helped with A LOT of the prep… **sigh**

I tired!

anyway… when my girl friend said they wanted to come … I warned her it would be crazy … but I wanted her to come anyway… we just don’t get to see each other enough… we drove to the Canadian Rockies to see them 2 years ago… both our hubbys are Canadian… we are both American gals… we are friends by default our hubbys have been friends for a long time… anyway… she is a blessing from God… a good friend… we get each other… it is sad they are so far away… anyway… with her 3 girls and my two monkeys… we don’t really get much grown up talkin in… but we try… despite the littles … it was good to laugh and cry with her this week… and catch up on each others lives … and…

she did my dishes!!

my least favorite chore!

and by hand…

b/c our dishwasher is Still broke… *cough*…

good times in a busy week…

her littlest girl begged and begged and begged to go “pick flowers”

on the other side of our new fence…

(they were really weeds)  …snicker snicker…

We finally managed to get her out there Thursday afternoon…

I love that picture above of the girls on the hunt for buttercups and …

Wednesday (again)

other pretty flowers!~  ha ha

Thursday Front Page News!!! (in my world anyway)

Abby got her hard earned Bronze Award !!!

she confessed that she thought it would be MUCH bigger!!!

(I laughed so hard I cried!!)

I can actually see that thought in her facial expression!!  =)

“um… that is IT?”…

She did get a really cool bronze award necklace and key chain too!

hubby took the picture… so I can’t take credit…

but I couldn’t NOT post that!  =)

Friday    152/365   Hot? =)

I bought these cool mugs…

for a wedding gift…

for my friends who rekindled a short high school romance

20 years later… and a divorce or two later…

fun how the world goes round…   

aren’t they cool??!

Starbucks!!  =)

They are chalk board… you use a liquid chalk pen on them….

bake em… at a high temp… HOT HOT HOT and they are permanent!   =)

How cool is that?!!

…..

Saturday   ~  Finding Form   153/365

I found this incredibly Fun Door Frame

on my way home from a trip to the local farmers market

it was Soooo neat… I had to stop and snap a couple shots…

I only had my cell phone…

but they turned out kinda neat…

here is a full shot

what a fun way to spruce up a plain back door

with really cool pipes!

though…

I kinda liked it plain too…

moving on…

Saturday was a HOT HOT HOT day  154/365

for an early Summer Wedding in this usually rainy chilly PNW city!

my friends were so blessed by the weather this weekend!

of course … my man and I were glad the weather was nice too

he was one of two photographers for the day (stress!)

I followed them and suggested location and the detail kind of stuff…

while the two photographers (who don’t “do” weddings) …

snapped thousands of shots of the happy couple!

I snapped some with my snap and shoot just because I was there… =)

I like this one of her feet!

I also decorated a huge arbor, helped with flowers, vases, tables…etc.etc. etc.

and I made 50 wedding cake pops

and learned a few things about piping cake pops… *cough*

I put together a photo mat for signatures,

bought some lantern holders, candle holders, ribbons, zip ties… etc etc. etc.

and I bought fancy cupcakes with …

Beads on them…

aren’t they amazing?!   =)

it was a busy week folks…

CRAZY busy…

hello… LIFE…

could you slow down a bit so I can take a breath?!!  =)

its all good stuff…

next week I move on from Girl Scouts, out of town guests and weddings…

to helping with Abby’s play:  sets, costumes and props…

breath…

and I really need to order Sammy’s curriculum for school next year…

(the home school program we attend pays for it… BLESSING!…but I need to get on the ball and order it before June 11th?? )

Summer Soccer is now in full swing this week

oh… and I have a birthday party to plan for my sweet Little Man!!

he is turning NINE… my last BABY is almost double digits!  *BREATH*

I can’t handle how fast life goes by for my babies…

weren’t they just born yesterday?  =)

Do you all find this time of year crazy busy too?

(or is it just me??  oh dear!)

Busy or not … I keep my eyes on what the Lord has in front of me…

and soak in the beautiful things happening around me…

and learn from the not so beautiful things!~!

May’all find many beautiful things in your busy days this week!!

Blessings~

Jenn

ah… do you hear that?

just a moment of…

The Sound of Silence…

unless you count the dryer running!  =)

    Love the first shots of your kids. They’re so cute! Those cupcakes are so pretty and they look delicious! You asked about the name of a flower on my blog – sorry, I don’t know what it is. I just saw it and liked it so I took a pic!

    LOVE the pictures, especially the one of your friend dong the dishes. That speaks love, right there. Good girlfriends are always so hard to come by. And not just because they do your dishes, but the genuine ones.

    Just have to say, I always appreciate your comments. I love it when your name pops up in my email, and I read a comment from you. You always have a good word of encouragement! Thank you. 🙂
