How Can She Be Three?


'A thing of Beauty is a joy forever.'

John Keats

Happy Birthday Baby Girl!

best shot PS Kaish desperately wanted to be a werewolf for Halloween.

The costume store was completely out of werewolves last night.

I really can’t imagine why they would be out of werewolves

(the night before Halloween…)

So anyway, I am forcing him to be a pirate.

He is NOT happy at all.

Pictures coming soon…

What are your people going to be?

Halloween WHAT?

What do monsters call human beings?
Breakfast, lunch and dinner!

Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop

is all about Halloween today.

Shoshi is going to be a transformer.

I forget the exact name.

(I do know that it is ‘the coolest one!’

if that helps you figure it out…)

halloween what 1  Sadly,

although Halloween is just

2 days away

Kaish has no idea what he is going to be.

He has given me approximately

eleventy eleventy million ideas-

but when we go to the store,

nothing is up to his standard.


I won’t tell you about how crazy

I am going though.

I will just tell you to scoot over

to Mama Kat’s

and enter to win

the coolest camera/video recorder

ever in the history of the world.

No, I am NOT being overly dramatic.

I am nothing if not

the epitome of calm at all times.

Go on. Scoot.  Skeedaddle.

Oh wait!

Do you want to see a picture of the

Costume-less child?

Don’t I know the cutest children in the whole wide world?

Here are some Halloween Jokes to make your day brighter!

What kind of girl does a mummy take on a date?
Any old girl he can dig up!


How do you make a witch itch?
Take away her w!

Why didn’t the skeleton cross the road?
Because he had no guts!

Was it hard for your kids

to make a costume pick?

Jessi gets ogled!

Last week
my sweet neighbor Jessi
-age 13-
started helping me with a project.
We went thru 2 Oprah magazines
and picked out the images we wanted to try to copy.
She wants to be a model
and I want to be a photographer.
Well…sort of, kind of any way!pumpkin patch kimmy cheeseburger shoshi park 019 This was our first try!
I did edit a little more moodily like the ad,
but Jessi and I both hated it!
So I changed it to bold and bright!
magazine jessi 3  magazine jessi 2 So where is Jessi getting ogled you are wondering?
Well, the neighbors driving by think we are odd!
well, let’s just say, last week while we were doing this-
she stood at her patio door and waved a broom at us!

I am hoping that broom shaking is a beginning sign
of friendship!
Or not!
We’ll see!
Will definitely keep you posted!
Do you like being in pictures?
Not. So. Much!

Babies on the Brain…


A baby is born with a need to be loved -

and never outgrows it.
-- Frank A. Clark

little sisters bright b&w

A baby is God's opinion that the world should go on.
-- Carl Sandburg

A baby is sunshine and moonbeams and more brightening your world as never before.
-- Author Unknowna george 114

A baby will make love stronger,

days shorter, nights longer,

bankroll smaller,

home happier, clothes shabbier,

the past forgotten, and the future worth living for.
-- Anonymous

A sweet new blossom of humanity.
-- Author Unknownbaby b&w

Babies are always more trouble than you thought -

and more wonderful.
-- Charles Osgood

Do you have a favorite age of babies?

Kaish was spectacularly fun at 9 months.

But honestly, he just keeps getting better and better

with each month and year that passes!

Have I ever told you that I love him?

kaish little

He will always be my baby boy!

Of Pirates and Poetry

  logo i heart faces Matt is one of our FAVORITE friends!

He graciously allowed me to take this picture

in his Jack Sparrow hat!

He is the coolest!

captain jack sparrow 2 Pirate Wind

The autumn wind's a pirate,
  Blustering in from sea;
With a rollicking song, he sweeps along,
  Swaggering boist'rously.

His skin is weather-beaten;
  He wears a yellow sash,
With a handkerchief red about his head.
  And a bristling black mustache.

He laughs as he storms the country,
  A loud laugh and a bold;
And the trees all quake and shiver and shake,
  As he robs them of their gold.

The autumn wind's a pirate,
  Pillaging just for fun;
He'll snatch your hat as quick as that,
  And laugh to see you run!

Mary Jane Carr

Happy Halloween!

bLerApy an anonymous post because I really NEED one more fun meme to participate in....

Welcome visitors!

I really wish that I could tell any and all people that I am a negative person and if they don’t like it I will help them find the door and kick them out of it once we find it.

I am so tired of my “friends” telling me that I need to be more positive on things when I could really care less what happens to certain people. I mean when this certain person kicks your butt all the time and what not, why am I really going to care about when they get out of jail. As far as I am concerned he can stay there forever and never get out. That way he can’t touch her again or rip her heart again when he swears he will change.

That brings me to another point how many times is someone going to believe that people will change when they never really change? I may be slow at times but it only takes me a few times to get that they will never change. Some people it seems to take years to get it or they never get it.

I hate to break it to the world but men who hit women will never change they will always be idiots and jerks!

Charles M. Schwab

People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost.

H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

He who has learned to pray has learned the greatest secret of a holy and happy life.

Bertrand Russel

I hope your week has been filled with happiness!

I am going thru blogger withdrawl…

It is NOT enjoyable in the slightest!

I found out a little more about Kaishon’s run for Student Council!

Hold Onto Your Seats!

There are 20 children in his class.

17 are running for the office.

Yes, you read that right.

17 children running for the one spot.

He remains hopeful!

I love that kid…

Any exciting weekend plans?

Gary is working.

Kaish is planning adventures with the neighbor kids.

And I am planning on catching up on blogs!

Nine Years Old

I don't know how he is so big!
Sometimes I turn around and when I look back at him,
it seems like he just grew.
That quickly.
SO quickly.
I love every year.
He is trying out for student council this week.
He is SO excited.
We practice his speech every night at tuck in time.
It has changed eleventy eleventy million times.
Of course I like how it sounds each time.
He tried to be a Student Playground Aid
and he didn't get elected.
He told me when the teacher was announcing it
he had to pinch his leg so he wouldn't cry...
It hurts when your kids hurt,
doesn't it?
I hope he gets to be on student council.
I think he is the greatest 9 year old on the planet.
Were you on the student council?
I was in college.
Such fun.
That's the real trouble with the world,
too many people grow up.
They forget.
They don't remember what it's like to be 12 years old.
They patronize, they treat children as inferiors.
Well I won't do that.”
Walt Disney
Our internet is not working.
Please keep loving me!
: )
Pretty please.

Luctor et emergo

  Save the Tata’s!

Latin for ‘I struggle and emerge.’

Some days there won't be a song in your heart.  Sing anyway. 

~Emory Austin

tata 3

logo i heart faces It is my hope,

that one day,

Kaishon, Shoshi and Jonathon

will show this picture to their children

and say

‘there used to be a cancer called

breast cancer,

but a cure has been found

and no one gets that anymore!’

Do you know someone who is fighting

this terrible disease?

If you leave their name in the comments,

I will pray for them this week.

The human spirit is stronger

than anything that can happen to it. 

~C.C. Scott

My internet connection has been very poor lately.

It has taken me over 1 hour to post this.

I went to several blogs today and could not comment.

I apologize!

Comcast will be coming out on Wednesday,

so please forgive my absence until then!
