Nothing to Blog..

I haven't updated since the beginning of the week.. it's been a quiet week at home, so nothing just really exciting to share. I pulled a couple of pictures off my mom's blog to share. I love the candid shots like this.. no posing for the camera..just a moment caught. There's so much that's said in pictures like these. This is Natalie with her granddaddy and her uncle.



I sent in an order for the rest of my May pictures and what all I've taken this month. It was 120 pics. Did I say I was caught up? I had no idea I had taken that many pictures in a month and a half!

Completed a layout today for the latest OLW challenge. There's a story behind this which leads me to my tip for today. ALWAYS..ALWAYS cut out your rubons before putting them on your page. I know this...I've ruined layouts in the past and learned this the hard way. So why did I think I was gonna save time today by not cutting it out?...very big. stupid. mistake. I had to redo the whole page. Reprint the picture and everything. Messed up the surrounding Hambly rubons, which really breaks my heart because we don't have a local store that carries these. I was savoring every square inch of those things. Always cut them out. Always.
I guess I did pretty good to not having anything to say...

Oh how I love candid shots such as these. Leah, those are priceless. It almost brings tears to my eyes. I remember my SIL took a picture of me and my hubby when I was in labor at the hospital with Jayla. I had just had my "shot of heaven", aka Epidural :-), so I was able to sleep. DH was sitting right next to me, holding my hand and stroking my hair with his other hand. He had this strange but proud look/smile on his face. I didn't even know that picture existed until my SIL sent it to us weeks after Jayla's birth. Such a sweet moment.

Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend.
