Isn't she beautiful? I may be a little biased but I love her fair skin, blue eyes, and blond hair. We had a photo shoot with Micah and Mac and I am really happy with the pictures I got. We are having a great time relaxing and enjoying some time with John's family. I don't want to go back to the Northern weather!
Here's the lone boy of the family, Mac. He is all boy compared to all the girls in the family and such a cutie. I love his dark hair and dark eyes compared to all the blue eyes and light colored hair. We had a great time swimming in the pool today and enjoying the eighty degree weather. I love vacation!
Seeds are planted and I have got my grow lights set up. Now I just have to wait to see if they grow! I'm a little nervous since this is the first time I have tried to grow anything from seed but hopefully it turns out! I'm very excited for the warm weather and to get my garden going this season. Some of the seeds I've planted this year are green beans, tomatoes, peppers, a few different flowers, hostas and some other things. I am going to expand the garden this year so look for pictures of it in a few months!
It's March! Which means warmer weather and a dog that is getting into trouble. Rocco is in the mud room for the near future because he thought the "fertilizer" that they were spreading in the fields next to our house sounded tasty and is now paying for it by being a very sick pup. He is miserable right now and I do feel sorry for him but come on Rocco....DISGUSTING!
We are starting a job chart with Bella. We have picked four jobs out for Bella to do every day. If she does all four she gets a sticker on her chart and at the end of the week we give her a quarter for every sticker she has. I took some pictures of her doing each job and we have them on little cards in an envelope on the fridge. Once she has completed the job she puts it in her "Done" envelope. Hopefully she keeps up with it!

A lazy Friday night. For all my photography friends out there, I lowered my aperture and was practicing on getting my picture in focus tonight. I went from 2.8 to 2.2. I think I will keep it here for awhile until I can get some sharp pictures and then lower it again. Bella is breaking out in a rash as you can see on her face. She has the most sensitive skin so hopefully it's just dry skin and nothing to serious. Guess the sensitive skin comes with the blond hair and blues eyes!
My baby is going to be saying good-bye to her pacifiers soon. She thinks that when the snow melts Tinker Bell is going to come and take them away. In return, Tink will leave Bella a special present. She also thinks that Tinker Bell is going to give all her old pacifiers to the new baby. So one of the last signs that she is a baby will be gone. I will be happy to see them go but am sad that my baby is growing up.
We had an ice storm yesterday and everything looks beautiful. I tried to get a picture of some trees but it was too bright out to catch how cool the ice looked. I thought our basketball hoop looked neat too. Although the ice is nice to look at, it makes me want spring to come even more!
Bella is reading books to us like she is a teacher. I would like to push her in another direction for a future career but for now it really cute. She "reads" the book and then turns it around to show us the pictures. Sometimes she will discipline an imaginary kid to sit down and listen too. Funny!
