“On Halloween Night when the ghosts come out, they all get together and they start to shout!  Boo, Boo, we love to scare you, that’s what ghosts are supposed to do!”

This month’s project 12 theme is “Dress up” ..perfect for Halloween!

Youngest was a “Nerd” this year and got herself all dolled up for a Halloween party while Oldest did the scary makeup for two neighboorhood friends (she was in heaven..she loves doing stage make up..I think it turned out really well!) then she rushed to get into her Baseball Vampire costume, the fangs are finicky..her costume was inspired by one of her fav Vampires, Rosalie Cullen. The pup was in charge of Supervision while I made Cowboy Spaghetti for dinner, I make the girls eat real food before they leave! Fun Night!

Trick or Treat!

Project 12 The way I view…PLAY

“Summer” is officially over since school started this week 😦 but it did give me a chance to review the August theme for my project 12…PLAY!

Summer play is intermingled with getting back to school supplies, however, play definitely still takes center stage! For us summer play always involves water…

and this month, my girls have become obsessive about volleyball..

at the beach…

in the backyard…

at the park….

and even in the dark!

They’re volleyball maniacs I tell you, maniacs 🙂

Thanks for checking out how I view “play” this month! Now check out how Dawne views play and continue through the circle of talented photographers that span the globe!

Project 12 June: The way I view….”Fatherhood”

The Theme this month is “Fatherhood”. Father’s Day was a relaxing family trip to the pool but those shots aren’t making it for the project 12. Instead I’m leaving you with some images of my DH with his girls, “learning” (and I use that term lightly) to play chess, one of Oldest’s favorite games. He loves to be the silly guy with them and they eat it up!!!

PS. Do you notice the puppy smiling in the corner? This is what she does as SOON as she sees Daddy lay down on the sofa in the evening, she “smiles” at him to get him to take her for a walk 😀

Thanks for checking to see how I view Fatherhood! Follow the circle to Dawne and see how she views fatherhood 🙂

May…Project 12 The Way I view… “Motherhood”

Sometimes motherhood is the mundane…laundry, cooking, cleaning, transporting, working, breaking up arguments and dealing with eyeball rolling (lots and lots of eyeball rolling ;)) ! Despite the mundane, the magic of seeing my children, interacting with them and seeing them grow into the amazing people they are always makes it worth it. They amaze me on a daily basis. The way I view “Motherhood” is it is the most challenging but rewarding role on the planet 🙂

Of course, for me, no post on motherhood would be complete without my fur baby! She is my shadow (she actually was in the shot above just too short to make the scene lol) and she is as certain as my girls that I’m her mama, which is ok by me! We love her to pieces 😀

Thanks for stopping by! Follow the circle and visit Dawne to see how she views motherhood this month!
