I promised...

an update. I guess people feel I have been slacking on posts while my contest was running....so we better get back to the regularly scheduled program huh? I'd hate to land myself on the bad blogger list!

There have been lots of things happening at our house these days. First off...A turned 6. That was big stuff as far as I am concerned. 5 was a big birthday for me...and 6 is...well...just way too old. I tried to convince her to stay 5 but she wouldn't listen.

The birthday girl with half a pinata on her head :)

So to celebrate we threw a wild and crazy party, invited WAY TOO MANY children, and just partied ourselves silly. A chose a "cooking" theme...we handed out the cutest aprons, chef hats, brownie mixes, and cookie cutters as favors. We made our own pizzas and decorated cupcakes too! I'd share a multitude of photos...oh wait...I didn't take them...did I mention we invited WAY TOO MANY CHILDREN?!?

The Writer and The Pastor came to visit for the birthday celebrations. They brought "Baldy", "Sparkles", and "Yellow Baby" with them. We couldn't resist a little family photo shoot!

And I have to introduce you to S's newest play mate. This little guy made his arrival 2 weeks ago and is so special to our family. Of course I was beating down his mommy's door as soon as they were home from the hospital with my camera in tow :)

OK...that sums up the weekend at least! I have a few home improvement projects to share soon too!

And for those who have emailed or left comments regarding the headbands...don't despair that you didn't win! I will be stocking my Etsy store with them VERY soon!!

Love your blog. I found it because of the headbands and am so happy I did. Your pictures are so beautiful. What camera do you use?


Jenn said...

Thanks so much Lori. I have a Nikon D80 (which I love!)...and for these shots I used a fixed 55mm lens.

Thanks for the sweet comment!

What a fun party. My Jules would eat it up (ha, nice pun). She loves cooking. Looks like you guys had a blast!

Hi Jenn, I found your blog by searching space mud, and I like your pictures a lot. I noticed that you mentioned D80 and a fixed 55mm lens. I have a little girl who will be 3 in Nov. I am waiting to buy the D90 body and doing my research on the lens. I saw the 50 f1.8 and f1.4, can you give me more info about your 55mm? Also, do you ps your pictures? I always have trouble with low light using my small p&s, and I love your bright indoor pictures! Thanks a million.
