Back when I was 15, I got me a little cockapoo puppy.

After getting married, I left Quimby at my dad's house. I didn't want to take him away from the other dog, and make him lonely and depressed.

Quimby comes for "sleep overs" now and again. He and Moose never really got along, but lately they are doing just fine.


Yesterday the girls and I took Quimby for a much needed haircut.

Fancy New Lens + Park = Love

When I was first looking at DSLR cameras, I knew that I had to have a 50mm.

Being the cheap person I am, I decided that I would just get a kit lens first.

A few days ago my precious arrived.

50m f/1.4G AF-S


I am still getting used to using a fixed lens as opposed to a zoom. Not an easy thing to do, since I've been using zoom for the past 3 yrs.


Here are the park pictures.
I am lazy, and it is nearly midnight - so these are all just straight out of the camera.





Fruit Murder

Mya has developed the habit of biting every single piece of fruit she can get her tiny hands on.

This wouldn't be so bad, if she did have such easy access to our fruit bowl.

The other day I was loading the dryer, and noticed it was a little too quiet.

I walked into the kitchen and found her attacking all of my oranges.

She bit a hole out of every one!
Every. Single. One.

Who does that?

Oh well. We just ate like 10 oranges that day.

Love Day

Happy Valentine's Day! :)

We celebrated yesterday, we're rebels like that.

Denny came home with oodles of gifts.
I got roses & the newest Twilight movie.

The girls each got their own flowers.


He also brought us food from Olive Garden... mmmm.

After taking an hour to get Sophie to sleep, I came downstairs to watch my movie with Denny.
He lasted a whole 30 seconds before he started making snide comments.
He was banished from the couch.

Today it was a balmy 50 degrees out.
The girls and I decided we needed some fresh air and walked to the park.


Aaaand my photo for the week- Linear.

Package from Grandma

My mother adores the girls.
That may be a slight understatement.

I often get phone calls from her that go like this:

"Why haven't you posted any pictures of the girls?"
"I have them on my camera, I just haven't uploaded them."
"I NEED to see them. You are depriving me of my grandbabies!"

And scene.

My mom sent a package of clothes for the girls... filled with matching outfits! You all know how much I love matching outfits. Nothing is cuter than two little sisters in matching outfits. NOTHING!

The girls tried on every single one.
The adorable tutu-pants are my favorite.

And just because it's the cutest thing in the world...
Mya giving Sophie kisses.


Doll House

Remember Mya's super awesome bounce-house? Ya it broke. Lamest toy ever.

I took the defective device back to the store, and came home armed with a doll house.

The girls' first doll house.

They love it! We've already lost the table that goes with it, but who needs a table.
They can eat on the roof.


Including Myself

I rarely get pictures of myself. I have literally thousands of photos of everyone else, but not me.

When I'm old and wrinkled, I want to look back at all of these pictures and see myself too.

I have maybe 5 pictures of me from Christmas, none from the girls' birthdays, a few from Halloween. I don't exist in these family occasions!

So, I'm going to be using the self-timer a lot more.

My Baby > Your Baby

Mya doing the sign for "all done."

She does it when shes done eating, done getting her diaper changed, done nursing, and done in the bath.

Bath time = Best time.
