beginning week randomness.

I am catching up today after a weekend of running around and two super fun sessions. Yesterday was one of those days, you know the kind where you want to run and jump back in bed? Well, we started off the morning by getting up early for church because we wanted to get there a few minutes early…I always put Gabriel down for a nap for a little while and wake him up when we walk out the door. We got to church and looked around wondering what was going on? Where is everyone?? WE FORGOT TO SET OUR CLOCKS BACK. Oh JOY. We could have slept longer and our baby could have gotten his full nap and not be so cranky. If you are a planner then you will completely understand when I say, I felt like a failure. How could I forget?? I was mad….at myself. I had hurried us all that morning, and now we had an hour and 15 minutes to kill before church. Anyhow, I remained in a pretty grumpy mood until our shoot yesterday afternoon which brightened my mood so quickly, I forgot I had a bad day at all.:)

This was Gabe yesterday having fun while we did a session of some friends. He kept saying, “ball” and throwing all the mini-pumpkins.

Today I woke to the FedEx dude who was REALLY early, but he brought me a new friend, so I quickly forgave him.:)

Isn’t she pretty? What should I name her??

I have wanted a laptop for so long. It will be so nice to be able to leave my little office area and take it to be outside with the kids, or take it along places instead of being tied to a desktop. I know, you probably think I am ancient.

In other news, Brett had the pleasure of going to a recent Libertarian Party rally to hear their presidential candidate Bob Barr speak. I couldn’t get a sitter so I stayed home.:(  If you haven’t heard of him you should check out his website at Did you think we were only unconventional in our picture taking??  Oh, think again. :)  Brett has done some volunteer work for the Libertarian Party of Ohio, and in the past helped run the LPO website. Here are a few shots he got down on the campus of the University of Cincinnati.

This is the Libertarian Party of Ohio’s Chair, Kevin Knedler with Bob Barr.

Here’s to a good week for us all!!!:)

I have heard of Bob Barr! Hubby was just saying the other day that he really wished there was more coverage of ALL the candidates, not just the 2 major party candidates.

laurie eller - Okay. The “shiny new toy” is a doll. :) Be careful with her though, because my laptop (my precious Dell) was dropped on her side a few weeks ago when I FELL going UP the steps. Yup. FELL GOING UP the steps. Nice. I know. My little precious now has a crack on her side and the cost to repair is nearly as much as a new one. So. I got to thinking? Maybe I should just get another one… only PINK. Yes. That shall by my plan. And soon.

Take care of your new baby when “taking” her outside, in your bedroom, in your car… or um, er, uh… when walking UP the steps. :) *wink*

Congrats! (and no, you’re not ancient, just a late bloomer) *smile*
