Been too busy to blog

Well, I can't believe it has been this many days and I haven't blogged. We've just been so busy enjoying our summer. We've done a lot of sleeping in, going to the pool, enjoying new movies, lounging around, trying new restaurants, going to camps, getting braces, hanging with friends, fixing up classrooms, etc... whew, NOT a boring summer. I have loved every minute of spending time with my mom and Paige. We have giggled all summer over the silliest of things. A new favorite, and yes perhaps a bit much for our "almost middle schooler" is, watching the Bachelorette. We (mom, Paige and I), all have distinct favorites and none are the same. Paige's fav went home last week. My fav. better come out the new Mr. Ally :)

Here are some snapshots of our summer. None are edited or fixed up...kinda tired of doing the whole photog thing lately. It's too hot :)

Look who got braces :) Isn't she adorable???

She went to a sleepover and didn't go to sleep...I had a camera in her face trying to make her laugh and wake up. I'm such a pest! :)

He learned to get on the beds...SOOOO NOT COOL Marley Moo!!!

Cutie pie cheesing it up before dance! I am sorry that I am bias, but I think she is soooo stinking cute in her new "metal".

Wiggling her eyes. I swear this child can do the strangest things, like cross one eye and let the other one roam or she can make a four leaf clover out of her tongue...Weeiirrdd! ... always good for a laugh, though!

Such a tween!

Spending time with dear friends who are like family... LOVE THEM!!!

Jumping for Joy with her bestie...ok, I snuck one edited pic in :)

What have you all been up to????

It sounds like you are having an awesome summer! I love having the kids home and doing much the same as you are :)
Paige looks great with her braces!

So glad you are enjoying your summer to the fullest Missy!!! I can't believe we are already down to the last few weeks! Makes me so sad :(
Beautiful photos as always!

I'm right there with you. We have been so busy also. Seems like there is never a slow moment.

And the thought of having to get that classroom ready - Yuk! We start school around here in 3 weeks & I've gotta get my classroom put back together, go on vacation, & have some last minute fun with Zoe. So, in other words, no slowing down here!

BTW: Love the braces & especially love the pic of Paige & her bestie in front of the Batman Building (as Zoe calls it!). Hoping to make it down your way this fall sometime. If so, would love to hook up & have ya photograph Zoe! Plus, she would LOVE to meet Paige!

Sharon said...

Christine said...

Oh my gosh... I love her new "bling" smile! It popped up in my reader and I may have let out a little shriek... so cute!

And, I'm considering doing a huge non-edited photo dump myself. This post is very reassuring to me!
