Day 30: I wonder why...

Why my kids choose steamed veggies instead of fries at restaurants!? They sure don't get that from their mother!!

Two tired girls watching TV after a busy day!

Christmas trees aren't the only things brightly decorated this time of year. Hello carpet and bowling shoes!

Day 21: Under

What I look like under my glasses. Lame? Perhaps. But when I have a day with zero creativity, a selfie is what you get!

Day 15: Black & White Selfie

I'm glad I had this easy one to fall back on today since I didn't have the time, energy or forethought to take any other pictures with our crazy busy day!

Day 14: Well, this happened...

Dad took the girls shopping and Joelle proudly came home with COKE?!?! Sigh...where did I go wrong?

Friday, December 13, 2013


Day 13: Sorry, not sorry. 

Today was a day of bad eating which I was not sorry for at the time...but I may feel a bit sorry now!

Day 12: A beautiful sight.

Malia is the one who gasped this morning and said "Look at the beautiful sunset!" (Yes she said sunSET) And I'm glad that I did. The rest of my day might've been sorta crappy but looking back on this morning's picture, it makes things seem just a little brighter.

Day 11: Sprinkles.

I may or may not have enjoyed a cookie just like this at 11am. Maybe.

Day 10: Mittens [or the singular version at least]...of the fingerless variety, of course!

Homemade (by Les - including the shells) butter tarts...he made mine with chocolate chips since I don't do raisins!

Haphazardly by the kids with homemade decorations galore...just the way I like it!

Sunday, December 1, 2013


I have seen three different December photo challenges going around this weekend. I have decided to do a mash-up of all three! Basically taking the three of them and choosing which one I'll do from day to day. [And these pictures will break my usual rule by also being posted on Instagram for more people to follow.]

Day 1: In the mirror
