My Husband is Going to Vegas... Ah hum.

So my husband is going to Vegas for 3 days... and doing it in the name of A CONVENTION.  Oh yes.  He is.  A convention of lawyers... NO FEAR THERE?!!!   O.O   Errr???

He said, and I quote, "<--  See the quotation mark??  QUOTING HERE, These are 40 and 50 year old business men!  You have nothing to be worried about!"  


Are you still sitting upright?  Im not!

The ONLY difference in 20 year old men and 40 year old men is that they are power crazed and have money to spend!! 

I am not happy!  Let me repeat...  I AM NOT HAPPY!

Not one little ounce of me is smiling at this prospect.  I may actually hate this idea more then I hated the insuring me idea... though they do kind of go together when I think about it. 

TO THE WORLD:  I am renting a rabid pit bull while he is gone.  Knock me off at your own risk!! 

I see a week long hedo vacation with the girls in my future!    Sound wrong?  Uh, yes!  That would be the point!!

A business meeting in sin city while leaving me with the kids.  Nice. 

What's next??  Reclaiming one's virginity at a brothel??  I am SURE it has been done!!  Wink wink... smile... wink. 

I am hunting trouble to get into.  I am rusty (ha ha... rusty, get it?!!) at this.  Work with me!  (Lora?  Andria? Anyone?  Plaaaaaay with me!)

Family Pictures by a Wonderful Lady!!!

Thank you so much to Denise Weaver Jones for doing our family pictures this year!!  She did an amazing job.  She was literally given NOTHING to work with and yet... I teared up looking at the proofs.  Sweet Denise, I hope next time will be easier on you.  Photographers are everywhere... but the special people that are willing to take the time and work with the attitudes (BAD) that are presented to them, are priceless.  Penelope woke up refusing to smile, unless she was sitting by Denise.  Presley was sweet, but when we gave Penelope a baggy of cheerios to keep her from screaming, Presley demanded the same.  Somehow, through the chewing, the crying, and just complete and total irritation that the girls gave us,we got pictures that were just wonderful!  They show my family for what it really is... imperfectly perfect. 

Minus Penelope's constipated face, I love this picture.  Penelope is just now coming to a point where she disagrees with things.  It makes me happy when she says, "No.  I don't think so.  Not in the mood."

My sweet boy was sticking her in the ribs to get her to smile.  He obviously has lived with his camera crazed mother and photographer grandparents too long.  He KNOWS... do whatever it takes to get people smiling!

My Most Beautiful Princess!!  Hmmm.  My heart is so full. 

Come on now, you would give her what she wants too... do you see her eyes?!
This is us.  1000%

Another picture I love.  This is so true to their personalities.  Tappy hanging out.  Presley irritated.  Tabor happy and willing to try anything. 

1 Devious pair!!  Evil together.  Don't let their sweetness fool you.

Tears.  They are so sweet.
Do we get how much I love this girl?!!

Do we see my eyes?!!

My Precious Baby!!

Can I get an "Awwwwwe!"  That is Rusty's girl and he is CRAZY about her!!

This one may actually be my favorite.  Sweet Tabor smiling, Tappy irritated and eating, and Presley clingling to me as she always does... and I love it all!
