Joy of Love

I am slowly catching up with the Joy of Love assignments.
Here is my Green M&M's hand covered in Nutella.
It has become her  favorite snack.

When you run out of strawberries, just use your fingers!

Happy Snacking!

I like to ride my bicycle..

I like to ride my bike.
My Green M&M is loving the change in weather. She insisted on going for a bike ride three days in a row.
Here are some pictures from our Saturday ride.

We stopped at a park for some fun!!

Back on the bike.

She kept saying "My legs are getting a good workout."
Happy Monday!

Working on It

Well it is to be expected-I guess. I have fallen a little behind on my Joy of Love assignments. I am still working on them and promise to post them as soon as they are finished. My problem is that a couple of the recent themes required me to be in the picture. Now I have a tripod, so that is not the problem. The real issue is that in the same week my Green M&M told me on the way the my hairstylist (who happens to be Megan's sister). "Mommy, you don't need to wax your eyebrows, they just look like monster eyebrows". Oh yes, she told me I HAVE MONSTER EYEBROWS!!!. Keep reading this gets better. A couple of days later, after getting some highlights and taking care of my hairy forehead, I am brushing my teeth next to my Blue M&M (the older one who filters his thoughts-right?). He says "Wow mom, you have big holes on your face." Yeah, I am assuming he was talking about my pores. Great-I would love to take a Self Portrait and Family Picture. Hopefully I can find an angle that shows off my big holes and monster eyebrows.
Anyway, got to love the honesty of kids!!
Here is another picture I took for assignment 12: the eyes
Happy Honesty!!

Adalyn Red?

I couldn't help submitting this to the I Heart Faces weekly photo challenge. The theme this week is RED.

Go check out all the other great photos.
Happy Red!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

I go to my girlfriend's house almost every morning to start my day with a cup of coffee. I know a little crazy, but she makes the best "cup of Joe". Conveniently, she has a son the same age as my Green M&M. This makes it easier for the two of us to drink our coffee in peace.
Here are our two cuties wearing their Valentine's Day attire.
I made my Green M&M's dress from a t-shirt that was too short and just added the skirt. I  just appliqued a tie to Mr. F's t-shirt.
Aren't they cute?

Here is my Joy of Love assignment- generations.
We had lunch with my Grandma on Sunday and took her some valentine's. Now you know where my
Green M&M gets her good looks from-her Great-Grandma!
Happy Valentine's Day

Assignment 12: the eyes

My Blue M&M is wrestling today (only 3 weeks left). I stayed home today because my Green M&M has a birthday party today. We finished up some valentines and took this picture for The Joy of Love
assignment 12: the eyes.
This is why I call her my Green M&M.

Oh, we got grandma's Valentine's Day cards in the mail yesterday.

Nothing shows love better than supporting the gambling habits of young children. Love you mom!!;)
Happy Gambling!!

Warning- this post contains massive amounts of cuteness!!!

I took some pictures of my friends little girl today. These were probably some of my favorite pictures to take. They have an adorable daughter and an equally adorable dog. This combo make for some sweet pictures.
Enjoy-I did!!
Warning- this post contains massive amounts of cuteness.
She was napping when I got there. I wish I was this cute with bedhead.

Here she is all ready for her close-up.

Now, this is where things get really cute.
You start with a little of this...

and this...

Add a couple of dashes of this...

and this..
You end up with a whole lot of this.

Oh, I warned you.

Have you had enough yet?

and because Valentine's day is Monday-One More.
Happy Cuteness!!!

10: spaces- where they are comfortable

Kelly's assignment today is
Spaces-where they are comfortable.
We have a chair in our living room, that we all love. There is usually an argument over who gets to sit in it.  If it's me, I usually have to let a kiddo squeeze in on my lap.
Today, our cat Simon, had the chair all to himself and loved every minute of it.

And because I think everyone enjoys kitty pics, here are a couple more.

 Wouldn't it be nice to spend your days doing this.
Happy Kitty!!
