Alphabet Photo Challenge

A is for Advocacy.  I got these Breastfeeding stickers at the Green Festival last year and it’s a subject that is near and dear to my heart.

B is for Bokeh.  Shaped Bokeh is like crack!  I have yet to try out different shapes.

C is for Cherry Cake.  This is my mom’s specialty.  It is Black Forrest German Chocolate cake.  It’s a staple at birthday parties in our family.  This one was from Oma’s 96th(early) birthday.

D is for Disaster.  Oh man, this had it’s own blog.  Kaleb cut Lilli’s hair.

E is for Eyes.  I love my eyes!  It’s really hard to take a picture of myself using my camera, but then again I freakisly long arms.  Lol.

F is for Five.  Happy 5th birthday Kaleb!  He actually had two parties this year and this was from yesterday with my family.

G is for Gentleman. I don’t how it started, but Kaleb loves dressing in suits.  Reminds me of Alex P. Keaton.  He got a briefcase this year too.

H is for Hello Kitty.  This is the charm I have on my cell phone!  I love her 🙂

I is for Indigo.  The kids were coloring and look what caught my eye.

J is for Jelly Bellies.  I saw this ad in a magazine and it’s so neat!  The jelly beans are embossed.

K is for Kaleb and Kylie.  This is what happens when you tell Kaleb to smile….also looks can be deceiving…

L is for Lime.  These were some of the flowers that were left over from Mom 2’s cake!

M is for Mmmmm.  My Mom 3 brought these for me from a chocolate company in Seattle.  I love that they are organic and fair trade.  The flavor choices look kinda weird though, but how freaking cool is the wrapping!

N is for Nap.  He rarely naps anymore, but the poor kid was fighting a fever for days!

O is for Oma.  This is my Oma!  She turned 96 this year.

P is for Precious.  My Lilli, being precious for a split second before she ran off screaming at the top of her lungs like a banshee.

Q is for Quiet.  This is my Quiet Corner in my room.  I scored the chair and ottoman for free on Craigslist!  I bought the pillow at Ikea and it’s not in the picture, but I got a very cute round table for tea.

R is for Ryan.  Ryan being calm and compliant.  I normally get the goofiest pictures when I turn the camera on him.

S is for Sweet.  Lilli was crying about something and Kaleb reached over and held her hand.  Sometime they are so sweet to each other…sometimes…

T is for Toes.  I love taking pictures of my feet.  I am weird, but there are other out there like me.  Just visit Gypsy Feet!

U is for U.  Duh!  Pretty self explanatory, it’s funny though since we only have a handful of these letters on the fridge.  This one was on the side all by it’s lonesome.

V is for Volcano.  This is the volcano cake that my mother in law and I made for Kaleb’s party down there.  He specifically requested it and I think it came out geat!  That is dry ice on the top.

W is for Welcome.  Welcome to the family Karma.  She is a really great dog and a wonderful addition to our family.  The kids love her!

X is for X.  This was a pretty difficult letter for me.  I had no clue what I was going to do and I laughed when I noticed that there were x’s all around my fireplace!

Y is for Yellow.  This is all the yellow fabric that I have fro projects.  The lemon fabric will be either a skirt or a sundress, I’m not sure yet.

Z is for Ziplock.  I NEVER have these in my house.  We made the transistion to wrap mats and reusable baggies, but I had to buy some for Kaleb’s pre school class.

The photo challenge is about to come to an end for the month of March!  I have to get a whole bunch off my camera, but BOTH of my camera cords are missing and I can’t find my card reader anywhere in the house.  It’s really frustrating, but Jerry is nice enough to let me borrow his.  I think I will just make a slide show of all my letters.  I have to take one tomorrow for Z.  This one has stummped me the whole month.

I’m also looking for a new photo challenge so if anyone has any ideas, I would love to hear them!  I hope those that joined in on mine had a lot of fun doing it!

W is for:

W is for Welcome!  To celebrate Kaleb’s 5th birthday we rescued a puppy.  We have always promised him that when he turned 5 he could have a puppy.  Be careful what you promise your kids!  She is very sweet and great with the kids!  Welcome to the family Karma!

Quick Update

I have a TON of letter pictures that I need to post, but I had to wipe my computer.  I got a lovely virus from a site that I frequent called Diaperswappers.  I have anti-virus software and well as FF with Adblock.  The owner, Lee Dodd, has repeatedly said that the members are getting viruses because and I quote “a. Many of the mothers here at DS know very little about PC’s, protecting them, and how to avoid the sneaky attacks. To these members I say: please do not automatically assume that DS is the cause of every problem.”  RIGHT.  I’ll admit that I don’t know as much as say, Jerry, but I am NOT stupid.  He also recommended getting free software which SURPRISE is the one that I use!  Lets recap: I am a silly mom who knows NOTHING about computers, uses the SAME software that the owner says to use, use FF WITH Adblock, visit his site first thing in the morning, then later that day am stripping my computer.  Hmmm.  What a tool.

Well my computer has been stripped and thankfully I know someone who can do this for free.  I can’t even begin to imagine the other mom’s out there that had to go through the process of finding someone, PAYING someone and potentially loosing precious files.

I will be reloading pictures on my computer, editing them AGAIN and posting when I get a chance.

Seattle Green Festival!

I am SO excited that the Seattle Green Festival is coming back this year! It is running March 28-29th t the Washington State Convention and Trade Center.   I really enjoyed it last year and encourage everyone to check it out!  There are so many informative booths and the samples that I recieved last year were amazing!  The coupons alone were worth the $10 entry fee!  So if you are in the Seattle area I hope you can make it!

P is for:

P is for: Pixie, Pretend and Play.  Both of the kids are really into dress up.  The poofier and girlier the dress, the more Lilli wants it on.  I caught her in a moment of sweetness.  Shortly after I took this picture she was off and running and keeping up with Kaleb, who was dressed as a Fireman.

D is for:

D is for: Disaster, Devastating, Demon, Depressing, Deviant.  Le sigh.  Kaleb got ahold of a pair of scissors and went to town on Lilli’s hair.  Aren’t they supposed to cut their own hair?
