Portraits By Allie



Allie wants a pink camera for Christmas. If she can take a picture this well I think she should have one! Although she apparently forgot to tell the little ones to say 'cheese'. What sourpusses!

Conference with Allie's preschool teacher & other misc stuff

As soon as I was seated, Miss Amy says 'she's a pistol'. LOL She also said that she was like a little adult and that of all the kids in the class Allie was the most 'her own person'. She also said Allie was a peach, a joy and a treasure. I told her that we agree:)

You know you might have a problem with shopping when...a UPS truck passes you on the interstate and your 4 year old says, 'that guy comes to our house too'.


So much has happened lately...Allie got her Certificate of Citizenship, we had Brady's 6 month PP appointment, Jeff got his new car, Jeff quit the bank, we had some girls from the World Children's Choir stay with us for a few nights, Brandon got a haircut, Brandon finally decided he was ready to get his driver's permit, Ryan has become a sports fanatic and Brady's decided that we might be an okay family.

I was cleaning off my desk and found this picture from Christmas 2004 (back when 4 kids seemed like a lot!). Check out Allie's cheeks!

Happy Halloween!!!











a dose of reality

People have asked how I got all three still and looking at the camera at the same time. All I can tell you is that it was a MIRACLE! LOL Here's a more accurate shot...
