I'm still around!

I miss posting to my blog and miss visiting all of my blog buddies. I am going to make it my goal to post at least once a week, as this is my documentation of my life and my family's life. Spring has sprung and I have been taking lots and lots of pics and have been having so much fun. Paige is gearing up for her recital and has been dancing six hours a week, so I have lots of free afternoons and evenings to get things done. She is really quite cute, as she is sooo excited that she is dancing to "Beat It", by Michael Jackson, "Double Dutch Bus", some little Jessica Simpson song for tap, and is playing a poppy in the ballet of the Wizard of Oz. This time of the year is filled with lots of hours of intense practice and it is fun to watch her get excited. In between dance and school, I have made a few minutes to snap some shots of my favorite little ten year old cutie :)

These two angels are my best friend's boys. Aren't they the sweetest? I love them so much. Their mom and I have been friends for 32 years...can you believe that? We grew up across the street from each other and our families were best friends. She is like a sister to me and I am thrilled that she and her husband were blessed with these two precious boys.

Did ya hear the one?

I also photographed a friend's wedding last weekend. I am anxious to share some of the images withe the bride and groom. Here are two different shots that I liked.

Oh I am so glad you posted...I am becoming resentful of FB because it has stolen all of my sweet friends and I miss hearing about you and your family.

Your friends boys are just beautiful...what huge beautiful eyes they have!
