my fam damily. randomly.

taken from the archives.
i've realized i'm not very good at capturing moments. blogging special stuff. PRINTING pics and SCRAPBOOKING them. is it that i think they have to be reeeeeeally, reeeally important events in order to deserve a fancy layout? no...i'm gonna go with laziness. yup. that's me.

special moments are often small, insignificant moments, i know. in 10 years it would be fun to look back at some favorite meals from 2011. for instance, my tortilla soup makes my son happy and makes my daughter GAG. (what doesn't make that girl gag, though, i mean really....OH that's right! annies mac and cheese...) she's just lucky i haven't been in the mood for lentil soup recently. (last time she ate ONE lentil. ONE.)

madi got a make-up set for christmas and said, "look, mama, this is how auntie _____ wears her make-up...like a rainbow!" {snicker}

awe, the joys of letting my hair grow. one word. beanies. two words, actually. beanies and braids. when i say three words, beanies, braids and dreadlocks....please stop me.

i still don't have words for this.
my babies' first dance.
in elementary school!?!?!
i mean, really, people, reeeeeally....
i know i'm gonna be 29 next month, but come on.
my kids. at a valentines day dance.
p.s...kaden would not allow photos of him dancing. there also may or may not have been tears shed by my son when i, his mother, did the electric slide. at his school. in front of his friends.
it's a no-no, folks.


take some pics.
blog about 'em.
or scrapbook 'em.
or frame 'em.
or just put 'em on the damn fridge.
it'll make you happy.
