Moments in time....

Today as I was driving home my mind started wandering and as usual I starter thinking about mom and how very much I miss her. Then I got to thinking of how thankful I was to have so many great pictures of my mom. My sisters take pictures but like most people they only pull out the camera for Birthdays or Holidays. I never seem to put mine away. I actually have more everyday life pictures than I do Holiday pictures. To me it is very important to catch those simple moments and have them to look back on because as time passes those little memories seem to get lost.

My family gets tired of mom pulling out the camera but when they are older they will be thankful that I have so many memories saved in my pictures. They will be able to look back at these pictures with their children and tell the stories that would have been lost.

Because I am such a picture taker I have so many great pictures and I wanted to share a couple of my very favorites with ya'll today. The first one is of my puppy baby CoCo, it was just by chance that I took this picture and it is one of the funniest ones I have.

There is nothing better than goofing off with your best friends and your little sister getting right in the middle of it all! This is Kristin and her 2 best friends.

This picture was taking on vacation this year. I love how the water is arched over them and they are running like their life depends on it!
 This one is my very favorite! It is of my girls and was taken at the beach this summer. I am going to have this one blown up and framed. The sun is just amazing!

And of course I have to add my very favorite of my mom. She is holding my Sydney and my Nephew Matt. They are 4 months apart in age. My Mother was never happier than when she was with her grand babies and having this moment in a picture is priceless. There will never again be a moment like this one!

Not having my mom here with me anymore is heart breaking but it would be so much worse if all the pictures I had of her were during Christmas. That the only moments I had of her was while she was opening presents. There is so many more moments and stories that need to be remembered! So today I challenge you all to take a random picture of a random moment in your house. Then share it on your blog and let me know because I would love to see it.

As always Thank you so much for stopping by and I really hope you take a moment to enjoy today and all its moments!

Spooky Weekend!!!

I hope everyone has survived the Zombies, Vampires and sugar rushed children. We had a ball Trick or Treating. Halloween is Will's favorite "holiday" which surprises me since he doesn't like socializing much and hates any type of exercise and with Trick or Treating you have to do lots of both.

Here are my little Hero's from last night. Sydney was an AVATAR and Will was S.W.A.T. Sydney was the only AVATAR that we seen so she really got a kick out of that and Will had to "Clear" all the houses before he left. 

I also managed to get a layout done this week. I used Fancy Pants Wishful Thinking on this layout. Fancy Pants is one of my all time favorite companies, and this line is Beautiful.  I am going to have to get some more of it for sure. This layout is of Sydney and a few of her favorite things right now in her life. She is growing so fast and changing so much and its important to me to remember everything I can.

Well its time for me to get back to my house work and hopefully some me time which of course will be spent in my scrap room! Thank you so much for stopping by and have a Beautiful day.
