Friday's Reflection on the Week

So, it's been a pretty great week! God has been watching over Everett and I indeed! I have been wanting to enter Everett in a baby contest through Parenting magazine and Regis and Kelly. On Wednesday I got the urge to take Everett on a photo shot adventure to Kennesaw Mt. We got there and snapped a few, but the sun was just too bright and Everett was distracted and interested in exploring. I decided to leave and find another location.

I love taking outside pictures, I just love the beautiful nature! My dad would be proud! Just don't ask me to go on a 5 mile hike. Anyhow, as I was driving down Stilesboro Road in Marietta completely paying attention and I see this Ford truck in their lane coming the other direction & next thing I know, this truck had moved into my lane and I drove off the side of the road. My heart was beating so fast, I had to completely pull over. My word, I mean come on people!!! It almost seemed like this person was trying a suicide attempt or was just totally distracted. I am just thankful that Everett and I are OK. I was shaken up, but was able to get us to our 2nd location for pictures. Crazies out on the roads!!!

I came across this trail behind our house that Karl and I took Everett to awhile back. Snapped a few good shots!!! Here are some!

14 months old

GQ'in Everett!

Pucker up those lips ladies! NOT!

I gave Everett his 1st haircut a few days ago! First attempt was while he was in his booster seat. Did not work. He hated the cape I put over him, so I took it off and he went shirtless! Naked little Boy!

My 2nd and final attempt was while he was standing "free" and watching a Mickey Mouse DVD on the portable DVD player. Cutting Everett's hair was like trying to shoot at a moving target. Although the "finished product" came out quite well. Handsome in fact! He went straight to bed after his haircut, so I took the after picture today.

Today Was off to a great start and is ending pretty well! Everett and I took a trip to Target to get a few things. Came back home and it was already time for Everett's morning nap. Karl got home early today! Great way to begin the weekend!!! We hung out with Everett for a bit while he played with his favorite toys, Fisher Price Little People. And Off to Kroger I went to do some grocery shopping! I bought ingredients to make taco soup and a few other meals for the week. Talked to my best friend Lisa on the phone while shopping. Got to catch up with her! I miss that girl! Also took a few pictures with Everett and the dogs! Great fun! I love being a Mommy!!!

This is how Sammy looks everyday with our static couches!
