This week I Heart Faces wants to see the furry faces in our lives. So here’s our little bunny, Moose, when we first brought him home. He’s a mini lop-earred bunny but his ears hadn’t lopped over yet in this photo. I love his disgruntled expression…like he just realized what he got himself into by joining our family!

Well, not my favorite type of photo to take so I’m going with what I’ve got! I took this photo with my little point and shoot when I was feeling inspired to make a scrapbook page concerning my thoughts on almost turning the big 4-0. So here I am…39.5 years old, sans make-up…au naturel.
And here’s the page I made and my little thoughts!
Journaling reads: "Time has wings and it sure has flown, It seems like yesterday when I was turning 30. If I had know the wisdom I would gain in the next ten years, I would have surely embraced that birthday instead of fearing it. Now onto turning 40, I’m feeling fairly comfortable about it. These photos of me sans makeup show that I have changed. I see forehead wrinkles, bags under my eyes, crinkly crow’s feet and even an age spot. Who is that 40 year old lady looking back at me? I hope that she is a woman who is graceful with her aging and grateful for the knowledge and confidence that she’s earned. So here’s to turning 40...may the next decade be the wisest, most considerate, loving, “smilingest”, proudest, most romantic and all around best time of my life....so far!"

I haven’t entered a pic into an I ♥ Faces Photo Challenge in quite a while but I’m trying to throw one in there today. I actually don’t take photos of scenery very often, though I should because WV is an incredibly scenic, picturesque state.
Here’s one of the senior photos I took of the lovely Miss Brittany. The gorgeous scenery in the background is Pegasus Farm, one of my favorite places around.
Head on over to I Heart Faces to see more scenic B&Ws or to enter your own!

I haven’t had a spare minute to post anything lately so I’m stealing my chance now! First of all, I’m totally excited to be seeing the new Harry Potter movie later today! (Yes…I’m definitely a big geek.)
Scrapbooking update…I may be officially over my creative slump. I made two, count them…two whole layouts this week that I actually liked! Whoo hoo!

Now onto photos, honestly, I haven’t taken any photos since Halloween. Bad newbie photog! I can’t really improve like that but I’ve just been focusing on trying to scrap. I did edit a photo from Emma’s Purple Fiddle shoot.

These photos are from the last day of our trip we took to Pittsburgh. By this point I was tired of carrying my big ol’ camera around and there was bad lighting in the Natural History Museum…so I didn’t take many photos and the ones that were taken, weren’t great. But, hey…I’m posting some anyway!
Miles was extremely excited about seeing the dinosaur “bones” but when we actually arrived in that section, he was pretty scared of them!

|In the African Savannah, sort of.|
After the Natural History Museum, we went to the Science Center… where I took NO pictures.
Then we went to check out this submarine. Pretty cool!
Ten things to teach my son so that he will be a prince and not just another frog...
1. Say I love you, every day and mean it.
2. Admit when you are wrong. Then say you’re sorry.
3. Don’t be afraid to cry or be sad or be happy. Emotions are okay!
4. Anger is not the most important emotion.
5. Cooking, cleaning, and taking care of kids are things men can actually do as well as women.
6. You are worthy of respect and understanding and you must give those to others, as well.
7. It’s good to just listen. You don’t have to offer a solution all the time.
8. Be affectionate. Hugs go a long way to making the world a better place.
9. Be respectful. don't yell at people. Don't call them names.
10. Care...about yourself and those you love. Show it.

I have oodles of photos that I’d like to get the time to edit and post…but I never do! Here’s a batch that I did find the time to play with.

The very first thing we did when we got to NC , last week, was to go to watch Chloe’s horseback riding lesson. She’s been taking lessons for a few years and I was really impressed with her horse skills. We’re so proud of you, Chloebug!
Chloe and her riding instructor, who was so nice… she even let Miles have a turn on a horse!

On Saturday, we got to see Jack play in the first game of his playoffs. It was the Chargers against the Cowboys.
Jack is #75
Stephanie is a wonderful mom and is so involved in the kid’s activities.
Touchdown…Chargers are on the way to a win!
