Awesome Photos!

Another one of our trees is blooming, and it's just gorgeous! I had to take photos before the blooms are all gone. I believe this is a cherry blossom tree, and wow, does it smell great right now!


Can you see on the lower right side of the tree in the background? Yep, that's Princess sitting there posing for me!


I just love this photo! I'm going to have to get a large photo printed up of this one! My girls are wonderful!


Beautiful Emily looking less and less like a girl every single day. I wish I could freeze time for a while, but I don't think that's going to happen.


My sweet and wonderful Jessica! She's beautiful inside and out, and like her older sister, she's growing up way too fast.


This is just gorgeous! This is the prettiest this tree has ever been!


You knew I had to get a photo with Princess in it! I'm telling you, she just sits patiently waiting for me to take the photo! She is so funny! Awesome photo!!


BIG close up of my furry girl. She's so silly! Well, really, who's sillier? Her or me for taking all of these photos of her? Yep, it's probably me!

Well, we had a couple of busy evenings the last couple of nights. On Monday evening, both of my girls were invited to the PTA Reflections ceremony. They both submitted winning artwork for the "I Can Make A Difference By" theme. My oldest even advanced to the state level. Her theme was "adopt a roadway" which we actually do. We adopted the street that we live on, and we pick up trash a couple of times a year on our road. My youngest drew an amazing recycling picture. They were both awesome drawings, and I'm thrilled that others thought so too! Last night, my oldest and I went to the local library were she won 3rd prize in a poetry contest. There were 88 entries, and she came in 3rd. I was so very impressed. Her poem was wonderful. What an honor. Then, at the same time, my youngest had her "step up" night at the Junior High. Both of my girls will be in Junior High next year! Anyway, the girls have an early dismissal day today, so they'll have lots of relaxing time at home to get caught up on homework, etc. It's raining and kinda gloomy today. I hope you all have a great day. I'm still having the worst time with Blogger . . . leaving comments is horrible! Is it just me, or are you having problems too? Let me know. Thanks for stopping by!!

Such a beautiful selection of photos there Carol. I feel a scrapbook page coming on? If you haven't already I think these would be great to do, especially with all the blossom on the tree. I do love Spring.

It's beautiful here today, it's supposed to be 22 degrees C but I'm sure it's hotter. I've got to go pick the kids up in a few minutes and it's such a shame Max isn't allowed out yet as we could hae stopped at the park on the way back. He'd have loved it! Oh well maybe next week if it is't raining again by then!!

Hugs

Oops, I forgot, Carol....my latest card on my blog, the flourish was made using my new Home Accents Cricut cartridge; I have used this cartridge more than any other I have.
