this awesome shot of me was taken by Melanie...in processing,
I cropped my allergy swollen eyes out...trust me, it was needed :)
I decorated this lil mini cupcake, and for some reason I grew kind of attached to it.
Isn't it purdy?
Not in Austin, Texas we don't! We're barely aware that it's January...Winter in these parts. Just take a look at today's weather forecast: Sunny. Warm. High of 81f. We are aware that there's snow somewhere up North and stuff, but it really doesn't affect us. In fact, the other afternoon, Heather and Ryland got a group of us together at a super fab park to play hopscotch...or as Mia sometimes refers to as popscotch.
I don't mean to paint a picture that it's all a bed of roses down here...Cedar Fever has hit..and hit HARD! For two weeks, my eyes have been swollen & itchy, nose clogged or runny...and the sneezes? Forgetaboutit! So, many of us are taking our antihistamines and braving the outdoors by hitting the pollen head on...today? Oh, on our beautiful sunny day? The pollen count is estimated to be High (1,499). So, we'll be hibernating :)
For more Theme Thursday shots, head on over to The Land Of K.A.

YEEHAW! Our friend, Layla...one of the sweetest little girls in the whole wide world...turned 5 years old! Her parents threw a righteous cowgirl bash in her honor...complete with petting zoo and ponies! There was entirely too much fun going on...which often leads to me taking too many shots....here are some of my faves, then some compilations of more super fun shots, too.
there are many more shots on my flickr
You've gotta look closely, there's a LOT of fun going on..don't want ya to miss anything!
Happy Birthday sweet Layla!!!

Our lil baby is three years old today! It's been quite a ride so far and we're loving you and your spirit. Some of the things about you that I truly cherish, are your empathy and loving heart. Oh and your love for animals :) Mia, you're so much fun and make us laugh till we're crying. You are the best thing your dad and I have ever done. We're in awe of you and all you do everyday. I love your voice...well, not when you whine. You pretty much talk any chance you get...showing us the world as you see it. Lately, you've been calling me 'mom' and daddy 'daddy-o'. You're very aware of everything around you and are super smart...you get concepts that we can't believe. So, sometimes it's hard for us to think of you as only three years old. You're super fab, baby and we love you!
