Annoyingly Long Photo Parade–but please look anyway!

Current mood: content

I finally moved the pictures from my digital camera so that I could post them for everyone’s enjoyment.  First, here are some pictures from our camping trip.

The first thing I want to show you is this — I found this tree, and on all the leaves there were these strange growths.  I have never seen anything like it that I can remember.  It’s just weird.

OK – here are pictures of the unveiling of Lola’s room – keep in mind we didn’t spend a lot, we just basically got rid of all the junk that was filling her room and put a lot of pink, blue, purple stuff, etc.  It really isn’t ANYTHING fancy, just more for her to play in etc. than it was before.  The difference is, sadly, quite striking, and since this really is rather meager, that should tell you something about what it was like before.

OK – here are some cute pics of the girls, their curly hair and how alike it is…

And these are pictures I took yesterday morning of my handsome man and my pretty kids.  No special reason — just pestering everyone first thing in the morning with the camera.  Princess had just gotten up, hadn’t gotten dressed or brushed her hair so she was a little camera shy, so there aren’t many pictures of her she would allow me to post on here…

And lastly, here are some pictures of the tiger lilies around one corner of my house.  I just thought they looked perty.

Second entry for today

Current mood: creative

I’ve been meaning to do this for a long time.  I have some old pictures of me and my mom and other family members, and since the scanner is the basement and I don’t know how to work it without Hubby here, I decided to try to use the digital camera to take a photo of the photos.  The ones that turned out ok are below.  I will be scanning them soon, after I get Hubby to move the scanner up here and set it up in a way I can easily use.

I also wanted to use the pictures of me as a little girl to prove a point.  My little Lola looks like her MOMMY, not other people as some in my family would like to say.  So, the pictures of me will have a photo of Lola to compare to. 

But first, here is my mommy.  This is her 8th grade picture.  I guess this would be age 13.
..

This is a picture of my brother, from when he was about 3.  He is wearing his “33” shirt, which he called his “free free shirt” and had to wear it all the time. LOL.
..

This picture is both funny and sad.  This is a picture that was taken at my mom and dad’s 25th anniversary — they walked into the surprise party in the middle of a “lets get divorced argument”.  The funny part was my face; the sad parts are my mom’s sad face, and my cousin Teresa to her right.  Teresa is my cousin, who was more like a sister, who just died last year in a car wreck.  I miss her every single day [please hold while I dab with kleenex.].
..

And now, let the parade of Mommy / Lola pictures begin.

#1 Mommy

Lola

And in the next picture, your eyes are not deceiving you.  You may not know that it was I who was was the subject of John Cougar’s song, “Little Pink Houses For You and Me.”  I had a pink house, a dirt yard, and a bad case of poverty.  But although we didn’t have much we did have each other and my mom kept everything gleaming clean (except me, I got out of reach sometimes and headed straight for mud pie glory)

Photo Parade

Current mood: loved

Here are some recent pictures from the camera.  These first ones are of Lola, who has suddenly become interested in the baby doll and playing “Mommy”.

..

..

But she still likes to be the “Baby” too!!!

..

These next pictures are from the Middle School Talent Show night, everybody got all dressed up.  Princess & Tay looked gorgeous.  I did their makeup so they wouldn’t look too washed out on the stage…their lighting in there isn’t so great.  But they did look way older than they really are so hopefully they haven’t gotten hooked on makeup!!!

OOOOhhh she is MAD!!!
