Flip-Flops and Funny Faces

Sorry for the lack of blog posts recently. There are some things going on in my non-existent social life that are really bugging me. I naively thought that high school ended after high school and that at some point in my life, I’d actually “fit in.” Not that I want to be like “everyone else” – I’m still a fan of being unique, but still! 

I really want to blog about the specifics that are bothering me, but Sasquatch and another good friend have managed to convince me to be the better person and just leave it alone. I’m REALLY trying to be the better person, but for some reason, it’s all led to a little bit of a creative block. I’ve struggled to come up with anything else to write about, and I haven’t really wanted to edit any of my personal pictures in a while.

I’m determined to get over the whole thing, though. I desperately want to figure out how to be happy regardless of the circumstances. I’m still holding onto the hope and faith that certain things in our life are going to change soon, but in the meantime, I know it’s not a good attitude to say “I’ll be happy when…”

With that being said, I decided to edit some pictures of Miss Sparky last night. She LOVES to steal other people’s shoes and socks. Her very favorite shoes are a pair of The Princess’ flip-flops. She manages to clomp around in them remarkably well, but she’s prone to stepping out of them. This causes her no end of frustration, and when she’s frustrated, she makes that lovely little scream that sounds like a bottle rocket going off in the living room. Since I’m not a huge fan of high pitched noises reverberating off the vaulted ceilings (and amplified by the uncarpeted floors), I’ve asked The Princess to please keep the shoes in her bedroom.

I had to take these pictures first, though. When Sparky is actually willing to look at the camera (which isn’t very often), she gives me the funniest little cheeser grin, which I LOVE. I know I make a point of telling my clients to PLEASE refrain from telling their children to “say cheese,” and I’ve never uttered those words to my own children, but somehow they figure it out anyway. I think it’s kind of adorable in an only-every-once-in-a-while-on-camera sort of way.

Cute- our babes have the same shoe fetish AND wear the same brand of diapers!

Isn't Target brand the best?!? At least when they're not sold out (which seems to be all the time these days at my local target /sigh).

I have long since given up on highschool being over. Ugh. There's a reason I don't have many friends outside the 'group'- I was so sick of the popularity contests I thought I wouldn't ahve to deal with. ADORABLE pics though! And I love the color use!

I love the flip flops. Perfect for the coming warm weather. I hope you get over your creative block soon, I know how frustrating that can be.

I absolutely love these pictures, she looks adorable in all of them. Her hair is getting long. Can't wait to see you all again.

Cute pictures! That Red hair gets me every time. The thing I am working on with the whole "high school" thing is just not caring and trying to be the bigger person. But believe me that is WAY easier said than done. Hang in there!

Of course he's adorable...he has red hair!!!! You lucky momma! My daughter has WHITE blond hair and I just knew I was going to get a redhead to match me. LOL

Yeah, we're kind of fond of our little red-headed girl. We gave up hoping for a redhead after our first daughter was born with black hair, so her hair was actually a surprise. :)

She inherited the red hair from BOTH of her grandpas (my dad and DH's dad are both carrot tops). We had a one in four chance of getting a redhead.
