Do I snap a lot of pictures of TOOSHIES?
Well, my 1st off the cuff answer would be No.
No, I don't. But then something really really odd happened.....
I started digging through my picture files and lo and behold,
I take TONS of Tooshie pictures!
Who would have guessed? 
My kids I guess because they are ALL of them!

Don't forget to link up to I ♥ Faces this week for the TOOSHIE extravaganza!!!!

What could be better than a HOCKEY BUTT?

I ♥ Faces...SUN FLARE!

I ♥ Faces this week is SUN FLARE! Oh, how photographers LOVE their sun flare!

Kindergarten Thanksgiving

My baby (yes, the one that is in kindergarten) has had quite a week!
We started out with Parent Teacher conferences and ended with the
Thanksgiving Feast!

I remember those special days at school and looking back on them, it was soo cool to see my parents come to support me in everything that I did
(even if that everything meant a plate full of chips, carrots and olives) !

The kindergartners this year seem to be so energetic, like they have known each other for years. So fun to see them all shuffle in and load up a plate of goodies, give thanks for everything and then off to Music class to sing!

We had a great time with receiver.
We are so proud of the good student he is as well as the behavior that he has at school
(we can't always condone his behavior at home).

Your moving up big fella and Mom and Dad plan to be there every step of the way!

Really Random....+ Thank You!

I have been sooo overwhelmed and under blogged lately. I just go in these spurts
(any of you like this)? I digress....
So, I have had many of the lovely ladies that I blog with leaving me comments and awards and I just don't post them until I have enough to make one post. So, here goes nuthin ;)

Christy Rose just gave me this awesome little award and I am soo thankful, but as a matter of fact..she brings TONS of son-shine into this please give Christy Rose some love! She just lost her doggie dodger and she needs LOTS of cyber hugs!!! Thanks Christy Rose~~

I received a beautiful little scarf from Nikowa- She just makes them for fun!!! Are you kidding me, I can't make a dish rag for fun so this really great scarf was a HUGE surprise when I got it!

Thanks Nikowa! I'm still waiting for a picture of me in my scarf....I gotta get on that one!!! ;)

Finally, I won a blog giveaway (I am telling you, this NEVER happens)...but I WON!!! It was an adorable frame from Daniel Designs, I created it for my laundry room and I just hung it up last night! It is PERFECT!!! ;) Thanks to Shauna for picking my name! If you have not checked out her blog, do so! She has TONS of giveaways!!!

I ♥ Faces...Autumn

I ♥ Faces is a photography website that hosts a weekly photo opportunity in a different category each week. This weeks category is AUTUMN.

This photo was taken of receiver just a week or so ago, playing in the back yard with his brother...that little half smile is called the sidewinder ;) You know, where your kids start to become aware that you are taking a photo of them and they are *trying* to smile!!!

Good luck to all those who enter this week! Check out I♥Faces if you have not been there before!

It's Got To Be L-O-V-E...

Hi. My name is Tarah, and I am a STRESS BALL.

This is what I typically look like from day to day.
Carpooling, Gym, Work, Errands, Dr. Appts, Blogging, Shopping~ my plate is ALWAYS full!
And somehow my husband STILL loves me.
I can be sooo miserable to live with (and trust me..GOD is working on this BIG TIME).

Tight End and I had a date night the other night...and man- we both had a great time!
I really do love hanging out with my husband outside of our home
(no laundry, chores or dishes).
It so much more fun!!!

Thanks for the fun night babe...
(*and Yes, I know we look insanely young and gorgeous...don't be jealous-it's all in the editing!)

Brotherly Love

I walk outside the other day enjoying one of our unseasonably warm days only to find these 2 little knuckleheads in the back yard with these little get ups on. What in the world? I mean it is actually really funny that YES, they have matching hats and
YES they still want to put them on "Together"!!!

So, even though these 2 really can push the buttons on each other...
Deep down, it's that BROTHERLY LOVE that keeps them coming back for more!!!

Wildcats Take The Crown!

My past couple of weeks have been OFF the chart busy. I am sure you can all relate, one day you feel totally caught up and the next day you are 50 loads of laundry and no bills paid Behind.....So, I have to say that our Football season is over and we have already moved onto Hockey! No rest for the weary!!!

On November 2nd Quarterback's Team (The Wildcats) played the final game of their season...and let me just say that it was an exciting season!!! This team of 2nd and 3rd graders decided early on in the season that they would win all their battles....and THUS the CHAMPIONSHIP. The season was 12-0 and the score was 29-6. We were all SO proud of them! Great Season, Great Attitudes, Great Team!
Way to Go WILDCATS!!!!
