Then and Now

I just got a text from a good friend and an awesome artist. I had given her a couple pics that I had taken of my little ones and asked her to draw them for me in exchange for me taking some pics of her art. Well life gets hectic and we both completely forgot about stuff, and she texts me out of the blue today telling me she finished my daughter’s drawing though she probably looks nothing like that anymore. I told her I had completely forgot about them but I had to go dig up the pics I had given her so I could see just how much Rory has changed this past year. Let me tell you WOW! My kids sure have changed this year. Rory doesn’t look nearly as much like a baby as she used to! And Logan actually looks like a lil person now instead of a roly poly baby!

Rory Then
I can't decide???

Rory now (I know I just posted the ‘now’ pics)
Rory refused to look at me for 99.9% of the pictures lol

Logan Then

Logan Now
this one I could fall down and crash and he STILL wouldn't look at me

Christmas Pictures (take 1)

Well I curled the lil boogers hair for her and Logan’s christmas pictures. I decided to do my first attempt at them today. Anyways, her hair came out better this time than last 🙂

Rory’s head in curlers
itchy head mommy

Trying to put the lens cap back on my camera (she really did NOT want pictures lol)
Trying to put the lens cap back ON the camera lmao

Here she is with her hair all curly and cute. I tried bribing her with M&M’s to get her to look at the camera. Instead, she conned me out of M&M’s and still refused to look! lol lil booger
Rory refused to look at me for 99.9% of the pictures lol

And one of my lil man (who is even more uncooperative than his big sister!
this one I could fall down and crash and he STILL wouldn't look at me

No pictures today Mommy!

I get home from work today (around 11am) and find my kids STILL in their pj’s lol. I decided to try curling Rory’s hair again, which went fine. Then I wanted to take pics with the curlers in her hair….

No pictures today Mommy!

Pajamma buddies!!!

I love it when my kids are in these pj’s! I just think they look SO dang adorable! I had to bribe them with Toy Story to get them to sit together on the couch… well actually Rory was fine sitting with Logan on the couch I had to bribe Logan lol. Regardless, I have come to the conclusion that my couch is my favorite place to take pictures of my little ones!

my pajamma babies

Logan decided he needed a closer look of Toy Story (that movie has got to be Logan’s all time favorite movie he will sit and watch the ENTIRE thing!)
