A Few Weeks In Pictures
My wonderful oldest daughter turned 12 last month. Here she is with one of her best friends, getting ready to blow out the candles.

We went to my niece Jessica's wedding a few months ago. Here are all the kids outside the church. It was a hot day and Paige wasn't looking very happy.
The older boys left there jackets on for this photo and then off they came for the rest of the day. I can't blame them, it was really blazing hot that day.
There were bubbles on each table at the reception and Paige quickly grabbed some and started blowing. This is her innocent look. She was hoping I wasn't noticing how she was taking the bubbles off of ALL the tables.
Zachary had his Baseball Awards Banquet last night. I can't believe he only has two more years of high school. I have let the kids know that they can go to college up to two hours away and THAT IS IT. I think they assume I am kidding. I am not.
Now, I am going to be brave and actually show you a picture of myself. I hate to have my picture taken because I really need to lose 40 pounds. When I see the photo I always ask myself "Who is that person"? and am then shocked to realize it is actually me.

Are you ready? Here it is......Samantha and I getting ready to leave for American Idol.

In case you can't tell, I'm the chubby one on the right. Don't you love Samantha's shades (and Paige's art work on the wall next to us)?

I keep thinking I really need to work on losing weight before we go to Ethiopia. I don't want our new kids to be shocked by there new mama's chubbiness. This picture makes me a little more motivated. Nothing like sharing your inner feelings with the entire blogisphere to really get the motivational juices flowing.

Well, I must go now. The family is watching Survivorman and he is teaching us how to survey if stranded in the desert. I don't want to miss him eating the live scorpion. They just look oh so yummy. Really. I mean it.

Love all the pictures! Also, for some strange reason I always pictured you with dark hair, no idea why. I'm the same way with pictures, there are very few of me in existence and even fewer on my blog!!

Cute pictures!!!!

I know what you mean about pics. I don't know how I can look at myself everyday but be surprised when I see a picture. How can that happen????

I think you look great!

Your oldest daughter looks very grown up!

Isn't it funny how most bloggers don't like to post pictures of themselves?

Just so you know, I delete any and all photos that show the 'real' me. I feel better that way. I am working on the weight loss thing. Hopefully in a few more months I won't have to delete 98% of my photos anymore.

You look beautiful! And Samantha looks like she should be on Idol.
