Pigtails and Popsicle Smiles

Look who's in pigtails!
Somehow the pigtails make her instantly look older.

Pretty cute, I think.

I snapped this picture of the boys this afternoon.  Toby was in a happy mood after school (not always the case...) and he and Asher went to the backyard to play.  Apparently their mom was in a good mood too because they asked for popsicles and got them.  Grape flavored.  I loved watching them interact as they enjoyed their popsicles and talked.  They are such . good . friends. 

As you can probably tell, we are very much enjoying our renovated backyard!

I've been enjoying a bit of crafting lately.  (I needed a creative outlet besides washing dishes and changing diapers...can you believe that?!)  A blog I've been following, Jones Design Company, had a neat tutorial on making silhouettes of children using free photo editing software.  I decided to give it a try!  I'm very happy with the results!  It was a fun project and an inexpensive way to decorate a wall in our master bedroom.  They make me very happy.

{Sorry I wasn't able to get better pictures...still learning!)

What do you think?  Are you a fan of silhouettes?

Note:  I have to give props to our good friends Cammie and Robert who were over and helped hang these for me.  Tim and Robert hung the pictures and Cammie and I critiqued their work.  Who new it took four adults to hang three pictures!  :)
