My Dirty Little Secret

OK, I have a confession to make. I have a messy bedroom. I strive hard to keep the majority of my home in a semi clean fashion, but my bedroom seems to be the dumping ground of the family. I decided that today was the day and that my room was going to be clean! So for your viewing pleasure, I have before and after pictures.
Some of the things that came out of my room.
-7 pair of kid shoes
-two bags of garbage
-hair things, and more hair things
-dust, at least 2 pounds
-books, books that I’m not reading, but someone else in the house is
-toys, wow, why do I have so many toys in my bedroom
-a sit and spin
-used Q tips, ewww!
So shun me if you wish, but I did fix it, and now I’m reaching out to others with the same dirty secret.
I was too lazy to change the lens on the camera, so I could only get close up pictures, but I think you can see a difference.
Tune in tomorrow for the Master Bath…

More of Alyssa

Yesterday Alyssa was outside climbing on our “play thing” and sliding, I’m sure most of you would gasp when you see her come flying down the slide, but she is pretty confident of her abilities, and has a lot of fun sliding. For those of you safety obsessor’s, there is at least 6 inches of gravel under the slide, swings, and climbing area. I couldn’t resist the chance to catch some pictures of Alyssa. In most of the pictures she has a mouthful of chewed up apple, but I caught a couple of cute ones!

Unlike Aubrey, if I come at Alyssa with a camera she will refuse to look at me. That can be good sometimes because I get a more natural shot of her, but bad when I just want her to be cute and smile. I wanted to post some of these pictures of Alyssa so that my Mom can see that she has curly hair. My mothers father had naturally curly hair, and so far my kids have had very straight hair. Alyssa appearance is different from my other girls. Aubrey had lots of hair by this age, and so did Emma, but Alyssa’s hair is slow to grow, but I love the curl in it. She is also very blonde, more like Tanner was.

Little Aubrey was playing outside in the sandbox yesterday, so I snuck out with the camera to try and catch something with her not pulling a cheesy grin at me. When she see’s the camera she starts posing, I think she is destined to be a little model. Aubrey’s personality is so sweet though, and I wanted to catch her sweet side.
