Annual August Photos Available Now

I realized last week that the white shirts n jeans theme has become annual for summer pics. I'm not going to fight tradition! Plus, it's waaaaay easier than Xmas matching with two different gender kids!

Bonus few of Laney with the 'tude - "I'm 3 -- any questions?":

It's Not Your Closet -- It's Your Belongings . . .

(NOT my closet, of course...)
I just realized something looking at the ads and websites for closet organizers and cabinet installers. The reason these pictures look so great is the imaginary owner of the closet only has 6 black t-shirts, 5 black coats (I think they're coats), 5 white dress shirts, and all the hangers are equidistant. Also, there are only black shoes and purses. Now I get it -- the reason my closet doesn't look organized is that I have all different kinds and colors of clothes! My shoes are different colors and heel heights! My hangers don't match! I don't own 5 of the same garment! Wow. Mind blowing.

So, epiphany:
Reality -- it's making my closet look messy. Wow, I wonder where I can apply this concept in the rest of my life . . . hmmmmmmmm.

Happy 3rd to the Girl!

Craft time, cake time, present time, and . . . happy girls! Just a few hours later, we got the dreaded text: the guest on the far left (below) is home barfing . . . do we know how to throw a party or what? Hope the other kids don't get Round 2 of the puke bug.
