Pictures from the last month. Part 1.
Because it’s ten thousand degrees in Arizona, or at least feels it to this overheated pregnant gal, we had to go out and buy the family sandals. We got the sandals for buy one get one half off at KMart. The kids were really excited about it. (To be funny, Allan got in the picture and angled his feet. lol)
Allan dropped me and the three youngest off to shop and took Brooklyn to Home Depot (I’m guessing, my memory of that day is all but gone) and we finished shopping and waited outside Costco for them to get back. They parked and met up with us so Brooklyn and Allan could get some food. Because we went ahead and ate without them! lol
Quick funny story, my kids were covered in pizza and ketchup so I gave them some Burt’s Bees baby wipes I keep in my purse for Ember, they were playing with them a LOT, especially holding them up to make Santa beards and telling each other “ho, ho, ho” over and over.
Some lady walking by stops and looks panicked, and starts walking over to one of my little kids saying, “Oh no, honey!! Don’t put that on your face, it’s poison!!”
I had to bite my lip from giggling because I instantly knew she thought they were playing with those cart sanitizing wipes at the front of the store. I grabbed the package of wipes off the top of my purse and showed her. She laughed and then asked me where I got Burt’s Bees wipes from. I guess she’s really into natural stuff and has a grandson (or granddaughter, I can’t remember) she watches and wanted some. lol. It was just funny at the moment.
Ember’s been obsessed with my cameras since she was a little baby. She loves to take pictures. She tries to grab my dSLR all the time and pushes her bottom lip out really far in a pout when I take it from her. Even though it makes me nervous, I let her take pictures with our point and shoot.
I don’t treat our point and shoot carefully enough. Because it’s not my ginormous dSLR, I don’t think of it as being fragile or expensive but I think it was like $250 and that’s a crap ton of money!!!
I was cracking up watching her. She’d put her eye up to the lens in the front of the camera, then take a picture, then turn the camera over to the back and try to move the pictures on the LCD screen like you would on an iPod, since she’s used to the iPod. I was actually laughing the whole time I was sitting with her. She just makes the littlest things so fun!
A shot of her putting the lens up to her eye. I have hundreds of pictures of a giant red blur with a small black striped spot in the corner. The red blur is, naturally, her cheek/face super close up (since her face was right against the lens!) and the black spot is/are her eye/eyelashes. lol! I haven’t even deleted them yet because I smile every time I come across them in my pictures folders!
Ember was walking back and forth on the diamond shaped floor tiles. She’d count, “1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9!” each time she went back and forth.
I don’t know if they were actually diamond shaped, I think they were probably perfect squares angled differently than the other, larger square tiles, and Ember just called them diamonds.
Wait, squares are diamonds, right? But a diamond isn’t a square? Something like that.
Part 2 coming later today or tomorrow. Not because it’ll be so amazingly exciting but because my backed up photos-to-be-blogged are driving me nuts and I need to catch up now. I don’t have a good enough memory to blog more than a month in the past. ha
