Don't feed the animals! --Trendy Tot Tuesday

Linking up with Megan, Linsday, and Kelly for Trendy Tot Tuesday!

Today I decided to do a Halloween photoshoot with the girls, since we will be so busy on Thursday and won't really have time for posed photos. They look so cute! I picked a fox for Brielle and then Raya picked the leopard all on her I got lucky that they coordinated so well haha :-)

(These are just copied from Facebook because I'm too lazy to re-upload them here)

The picture above was taken right after Raya informed Brielle that only leopards can roar, and not foxes...Brielle was horrified and offended! She continued to roar despite Raya's protests haha.

When animals attack! hehe

I seriously cannot handle how cute that tail is

And don't forget, I'm having a Discovery Toys party right now! If you want to order online from my party you can do so until Nov. 2nd. Great educational toys and games for all ages---start shopping for Christmas!! Here is the link, and you can shop just like you would any other online store. They ship fast!

Pumpkin Carving

Yesterday I had two family photo sessions, so Lee had the girls all afternoon. I came home to a clean house---windows washes, floors vacuumed, garage cleaned, dishes done, laundry done, fridge cleaned out ---I have no idea what he was on, but he was a speedy cleaner! ;-) He REALLY wants to go on his long hunting trip next month hehe.

Then while I was editing some of the pictures he decided to carve our pumpkins with the girls. I do not like carving's messy and slimy and I have no artistic talent when it comes to them. So he always is in charge of that tradition.

Each year he lets the girls pick a picture from the computer of what they want on their pumpkin....then he free hand draws it on the pumpkin before cutting it out. Raya picked an owl and Brielle picked a "titty" this year :-)

She insisted on having the knife and said "I do it my own self!"

Lee thought it'd be funny to make it look like she was sniffing the cat's butt lol

Perfect. Happy Halloween!

Happy Anniversary to us! (I'm gonna kill him :-P )

So today is our Anniversary! My mom is keeping the girls for the day and overnight so we are doing a variety of things, including seeing a movie I think and going to a Japanese restaurant. Fun fun!

....that is, if I don't kill him first.

You see on Thursday night we had Raya's parent/teacher conferences. (She is doing great! Good friend, rhyming rock star, writes her name, puts on her own coat....all the preschool necessities haha) But Friday morning, when I'm already running late b/c it's our busy morning preparing for gymnastics, etc., I go to load everyone in the car and the keys are missing! I call Lee 5 times on his cell, 5 times at work, I text him 911....nothing. The spare keys are no where to be found either.

So Raya missed school and Brielle missed gymnastics.

Finally get ahold of Lee and sure enough, he had the keys in his coat pocket at work! See, you'd almost kill him too :-P

And then with the day being all messed up I totally forgot about Raya's dance class yesterday evening. So basically we are horrible parents who skipped preschool, gymnastics, and dance class all in one day lol.

At least he brought me a big bouquet of gorgeous flowers for our anniversary :-)

And yesterday afternoon I also had my very first indoor photography client! I didn't know this family, but they called me right after I got my indoor set up and I told them they could be my first indoor clients if they wanted. I am SO HAPPY with how these are turning out! I think I might come to enjoy indoor photography even more than outdoor. And I've already booked 2 more clients for indoor sessions just since last night when I posted on Facebook. Wahoo!

Here are a couple favs:

I made a bunting! :-)

We went in my backyard for a few too

Have a great weekend everyone!
