it’s pretty bad that i look at all the pics on my phone and computer
and see that most of them are of my products, and not of my kids.
this started out of frustration for lack of good shots of them.
they are so fast!
but now it has evolved into laziness.
and you hardly ever see them here on my blog!
but then i decided to do something i have never done.
i submitted a pic of silas for a cover photo contest on
the best part was scrolling through all my past pics of my kids,
and remembering how much fun it is to have great pictures of them,
pictures that really capture their personality.
this last pic is the one i submitted of silas.
the boy just kills me!
he is our hardest child to discipline, yet needs it more than anyone else!
would you be able to tell him no?
i didn’t think so!
so if you want to send si and i to new york (yes, please!) then vote for us him here!

oops!  link should  be fixed now!

    Voted as requested….gorgeous kids…our Max is a hard task sometimes because he seems to constantly live in a dream world & forgets instructions immediately after they are given!!!

    I love the one of your daughter covered in mud!!

    I tried to vote, but the link is not for Silas anymore. I looked from #1554 down to #1200 and then from #1 to #100 and could not find him.

    Such cute pics of the kids. Sounds like you have a similar situation that we have here. I have 2 daughters (ages 12 & 9) and then had a boy (now 5). Well he is by far the busiest, getting in trouble of all the kids, but being that he is the "baby" and so cute he doesn't get in a whole lot of troube either (so you aren't the only one)!


    P.S. Silas got my vote!
