A dinasaur.. riley rarely plays with this thing, I think we got it in the dollar section @ target. I find him in some of the weirdest spots around the house... a few weeks ago he was hiding in with the tupperware, one morning I found him in the shower, under the couch, on top of the computer, under the covers...ect. today I woke up 2 the little monster staring @ me. It makes me think of that cute little dinasaur in toy story... I think when riley is older I might use him for a mom/son joke.... the picture sucks ill have 2 take another one

I have been seeing family photos everywhere and I have been wondering how to get that glow look! Cause of course regular pics dont have that, and its what makes them interesting!
So I finally figured out how to do it on my Microsoft digital image suite
so here is the regular pic untouched
and here is the picture touched up with the microsoft digital suite, all i did was use that diffuse glow thingy and I filled in the tv in the back with black.. Pretty neat. So now I can take my own glowy pics :) woohoo Just thought I would share .. I think I made him tooo glowy but I'll work on just the right amount

& I love that it was a battery that charges thew plug in! and Its a small charger so I can take it anywhere out of town and everything! & the screen tells you how many shots you have left on that battery! Which is great, because on my old camera, I was right in the middle of my missouri vacation on 4th of july and it just died as we had all the family at the party sitting together smiling for the camera! How embarrassing :( Its ok, it wont happen anymore! WooHoo!

I Am..... a happy girl
I think....TO MUCH
I want.....to improve the interaction with my husband more fun, less stress
I have.. Nearly everything I could ever ask for!
I miss.....my mom
I fear.....loosing my child or family/death I guess in general eventhough I have expierenced it :(
I hear.... the radio @ work & that the real bat mobile is at the super 8 in AJ.. weird
I smell....Scentsy from the bathroom (snowberry = vicks vapo rub)
I crave... bean dip
I cry.... less then I used to
I search... for what I truely want to do with my life
I wonder... If I will ever be able to have another child
I regret......nothing, everything made me who I am today
I wish.....for Peace, Love, & Happiness for my family and friends everynight
I Love....my life & blogging & my phone :) & gilmore girls & my kid, hubby & myself most days
I care...about way to many things, from the color of my nailpolish to the quality of water in Africa
I always...say sorry when its not my fault
I worry.... about failing in life
I am not....taking the little things for granted anymore
I remember..... when right and wrong were as simple as black and white
I believe... in treating others how you wish to be treated, Kidness matters
I sing.... in my kitchen everyday while I dance around
I dont always...... choose the right over the wrong
I argue.... when I am standing up for something I believe in
I write....on my calendar and notes on the back of un-opened bills
I lose... my mind and my keys ALOT
I listen.....to my son
I can usually be found.... in front of a computer/home/work/school
I forget......ALLOT of things a I shouldnt @ work, and I forget my memories the important ones
I am happy.....When I have some "me" time & when I am at Target :)
TAG! read it, copy it, paste it, re-answer, post it!

When I visit my family in Missouri I have to make two stops :) MY Mom's family is in Memphis, and my dads & other mom are in Hannibal! :) I didnt get to spend as much time as I wanted in Hannibal this time :( The first day I was there I stopped by and saw Mom, Shane & Samantha in Hannibal! :) She made dinner, which is always fantastic and makes it feel like home. When I came back down to Hannibal after Memphis I had more time to visit! We went to Quincy for dinner at applebee's It was fun & really good! :) I dont think I have ever actually eat'n dinner there only 1/2 price appetizers. :) Poor Samantha :( I didnt get her in the picture.. I should have had her skoot over! :) The next morning, I was sad cause the kids had to go to school, I am used to the summer visits when they are out of school, Riley missed them to, as soon as he woke up he was asking where they were. While the kids were at school we went to park! I forget how different they are where they actually have TREES! We had a great time playing in the leaves, on the slide, and attempting to climb a tree
We were going to go down to see the trains first, but I thought, naw we will do the park thing and them maybe we would catch a train later. OM-Goodness As soon as we got the park, we heard a train, and Riley went Batty! Here is a video of him hearing it, and everytime the whistle blew it stopped him in his tracks! This kid is addicted!
He got reallllly good at throwing leaves! IN MY HAIR but I got him back!
Here is Riley's counting skills when he is distracted! But He can count to 10! Promise! :) Silly kid
After the park we went to get ready for the graduation, on our way to pick up my dad, there was a small access road in the middle of some houses, and we took that and found some stationary trains, Riley LOVED it! He got to stand on one! it was a little creepy though, I kept checking behind us and looking around .. I think its all those movies that give the abandoned train yards a bad name, serial murderers ect. :)
Then I picked up dad and we headed to the graduation!
I made us late! of course, and there was at least 250 people there! & no place to sit, and after we didnt even get to see my sis tiff, but we went back to her house for a few pics, She looked beautiful! and so Happy, I am so proud of her!
Then we went to visit with my grandma yakes.. who I havent seen in years and she has never met riley before!
My Aunt Kara and Uncle Butch baught a house there so she can stay whenever she wants. They are amazing people who I really look up to! & Riley liked them right away! My Uncle Butch flies planes and has his own plane in their backyard! So I am sure he will get a kick out of that when we visit them soon.
Here is my uncle Butch wearing tiffanys hat, I told him he reminded me of rodney dangerfield in that movie where he went back to college.
This is kind of weird, but its a really old bike shop, or bike graveyard.. Its on the way from Hannibal to Memphis in a small town. When I was little I used to have dreams about this place. so I have been wanting to get a picture for a long time!
I went to my little sisters High School Graduation last week and of course I took lots of pictures! But my camera was set on 1MP :( which is horrible worse then a cell phone pic.. I hate my camera!! It takes what feels like mins to actually take the picture and then of course I miss the good stuff. But here goes after many hours of changing the size of each picture this is what I got. I think this trip was bettter then the last trip, Riley did better although I didnt get to spend as much time with people :( But on the up side :) I did see a little snow, and went bowling :) The first night we stayed with Pa & Sheri :) Riley had a great time and I really enjoyed just sitting and talking awhile The next morning we went to Baring to see if we could catch a train go by..You know.. this whole trip seemed to revolve around TRAINS! I wonder why.. This is Pa trying to listen for the train threw the tracks, Grandpa who was sitting in the car told him it would work.. I think he was pulling his leg. Then Pa got me a manicure and pedicure at Sheri's shop! It was great! I felt like a girl :) Riley played and Paige hung out and watched him for me, She wasnt tooo happy when she had to change his stinky BUTT since my hands where in the process of being pampered! Then we went to visit grandma! I love her sooo much! I feel bad that I didnt spend more time with her. Riley was sleepy and cried the whole time, until he fell asleep. After our visit with Grandma we went to dinner with Grandpa, uncle Joel Aunt Sheri and pa & Sheri, It was fun Riley learned how to blow the paper off the straw & it caught in pa's crazy beard The next day me, paige and brani went bowling! The bowling alley was... a little weird.. there was no one bowling, there were some people there to have lunch, but we had to ask if we could bowl and the lady looked extremely irritated that I would even ask.. Hmm.. its a BOWLING ALLEY! thats what people do there. I was looking at the menu, and she said "Are you going to want to order something or what?" In a snotty voice and she was in her 60's! There is no customer service in small towns, so I smiled at her and said "Hi" I would love to thank you :) Here are some pictures from the bowling. Can you tell this is my sister!! I didnt even notice we posed the same! Geeze what a goofball family we are. See how many other people were there! paige and riley basicall napped inbetween frames :) This is my favorite shot! Brandi took it,a nd RIley did great! we all used the bumpers, and Riley still got 2nd place!
Here is a few video's I took riley playing hide and seek with brandi @ paige's apt :) Oh I almost forgot! SNOW! Ok it started snowing when we were bowling, so we hurried and finished bowling so we could go play! Paige and Brandi were cold so they hid in the car, but Riley and I had an AWESOME time in what little snow there was! He even threw a snowball and hit me in the head! The snow only lasted about 2 hours :( I was so sad, but Michael promises
This is me and pa, great camera work huh! :) Next time maybe I will capture our whole heads :)
