One hundred thirteen

I think this is the first iphone picture that I actually got the shot that I wanted.  This was early in the morning at my hospital after a long night of work!

Every spring when all the snow melts, the rain comes, and our front yard becomes a temporary small pond, we get a few ducks that come and hang out in our front yard.   Ella loved our little friends while they were here!

 A shot I got of my daughter's hair one morning!  I was experimenting and I thought it turned out really cute!

Ok, I seriously am this close to quitting.  I've had a lot going on in my life as of late and I've also not been feeling well for several weeks.  Both of those combined made me almost give up.  So I'm going back and posting all the pictures I've taken the last couple weeks (the good and the bad) and filling in the holes.  I'm sure I've missed several days altogether so I will try and make them up somehow. goes.  

This is clearly an awful picture (blurry from my iphone) so I realize there is no need for a watermark...but I exported it in a batch ya go.   At least it's a picture of my cute husband!

Today was gorgeous!  And despite mommy coming down with an awful cold the night before, we still made time to play outside!  Ella loves riding her bike!

I know this one has stuff blown out (it was 1:00 in the afternoon), but I LOVED her smile in this one!

Today we celebrated my nephew's birthday at my sister's house.  Ella was staring intently at the candles before Nate blew them out!

My hubby and I finally had a date night out!  It was freezing out and I had a dress on so this was the best I got.  Isn't he handsome! (can you tell he hates getting his picture taken!)

When I got Ella her breakfest this morning she informed me that her penguin was very hungry.   So  I gave him some french toast and a banana too!  She loved this!  LOL!

I swear I don't know why I buy this kiddo any toys.  She's been deliriously happy with just a balloon to "bop" around for weeks now.  

Look at this concentration.  Please ignore the limb chop...argh!

Not the best outfit for a photo session, but this is what I got today.  It was super rainy and dismal out so I had to make due with indoor light (hence the odd shadows...can you tell how many lights I had on?)  But I still sorta like this one.  She was being goofy, as usual!

This is what I was popping all weekend to avoid driving my fellow nurse insane with my coughing.  I hate being sick.  Yes, that is an economy pack.

Horrid...I know.  And sadly, it's not even in focus...LOL!  I think I was actually driving when I took it.  But it's a picture...

My next four posts/pictures will be BORING.  I worked all weekend and never even took my camera to work.  These are all iphone pics.  The one in my car is especially sad.  Oh well!

I actually like this one a little.  I heard my hubby and daughter playing outside while I was getting ready to leave for work.  I took it through the window (and screen, ugh.).  He was helping her work on pedaling.  It was just so sweet!  Love these guys!

Can I just make a small PSA.  Can we all just agree to turn off word verification on our blogs?  I swear...word verification makes me crazy.   Mostly because I am so bad at it!

I WANT to post comments on your blog.  I follow a lot of blogs (365 blogs and others) and when I want to comment and have to try to type in the right word/number combo about a hundred times to post a comment to your blog it makes me not want to comment anymore, on anyone's blog!

So yesterday, after trying to comment on a few blogs, I went into my own settings and GASP...I had word verification for comments turned on in my OWN blog.  Argh!  I'm so sorry.  I swear I didn't know.  I'm hoping maybe you don't know either.  I immediately turned it off so I don't have it anymore.  Comment away...LOL!    If spam becomes a major problem I reserve the right to revisit this!

Ok, on with the photos!

We went to the zoo today.  My favorite shots were from the Butterfly House!

My first attempt at a reflection shot.  Not the best, but I still like it!

I would love this shot so much more if there wasn't a line of kiddos and parents behind her!  

With this view I eliminated the line-up in the background but she decided it was a good time to start pulling up her!    And of course I chopped her foot.  Oiy!

Today's project:  Sewing a cord cover for the chandelier in Ella's room. 

 Next up...hemming Ella's curtains!  Once you have the machine out and remember how to use might as well get every sewing project you had brewing your mind done!

By the way, I can't tell you how happy it has made me to have the sun out all week!  It's still on the cold side out there, but the sun makes it so much more cheery!

Swimming!  This was our second day in a row after a LONG swimming hiatus.  I forgot how much she loves it!  She's my little fish!

*Disclaimer...I swear she doesn't usually wear her sunglasses while using the iPad.   She had them on her head as I was setting up this shot and I asked her to put them on for a minute.  LOL!  It turned out cute though!
