I Hope You Don't Have Dial-Up...

...because you're sure going to hate missing all of these photos!

I Heart Mom

Frankie knows who loves him.

Spoiled Rotten At Grandma & Grandpa's House

Last week we traveled to Dallas to see Grandma and Grandpa. Here are some of our favorite photos from the trip! Just for the sake of making excuses, this is the reason why I haven't posted anything in over a week.

I was a little disturbed at how much Frankie looked like my dad in this photograph. Perhaps it's the smug expression? I included the insert for comparison, although one of his baby pictures might be a better match.

Grandma and Grandpa share a photo op with our star.

With Auntie Yaya.

With cuz Elena - she's the one in the tutu.

With Uncle Brian.

Scandal during step aerobics! New moves stolen!

With our friend Frankie.

Swing Time

Frankie loves the new swing that Juston installed in our backyard.

I said there would be pictures, and I always deliver.

Frankie and Juston engage in some face grabbing.

Frankie meets Dyson. The things Juston loves in this world, in descending order: me, Frankie, Bridget, this vaccum.

Frankie in his "Huck Finn" hat. The doctor said that his nose is yellow because of the carrots and sweet potatoes.

We picked up this beauty at the East Atlanta Antiques Bazaar. It's going to hang next to my desk and inspire me.

Bridget appears to be smiling, but don't let that fool you. Wearing clothing is actually a punishment for her. She hates it.

It's not much, but here's the first video. We need to work out the compression issue so that it'll play better, but it's late and I'm tired. So deal with it, and be patient as the huge file downloads.

New Camera!

Finally, some new photographs! I got a new Canon PowerShot SD1000, and since I'm still trying to figure out all of its few features, a couple of the photos are out of focus, but I think you'll forgive me when you see how cute they are!

Since our bathtub drain leaks and we haven't fixed it yet, Frankie gets to bath in the duck.

Aren't my kids just the cutest?

I took some short videos with my camera, but YouTube won't let me sign up for some reason. Once I get that figured out, I'll try a video! Get after Juston if you want some fancy edited HD thing.

Birthday Party!

A couple of weeks ago, I took Frankie to a birthday party - it was the first one he'd attended. Catch is, this one was for a dog. Here's a photo of Frankie getting loved by the birthday girl, Miss Piggy.

Woman at Work

This blog is currently UNDER CONSTRUCTION! I made the mistake of changing my template...and let me tell you, it's much more difficult now. The wsysiwyg editor is much more difficult than just writing in simple HTML, or at least my computer seems to think so, so as I figure out how do things, there will be changes all over the place. Also, I might be working a LOT over the next couple of weeks - I have to go in today to get started on a couple of projects, so I'm not sure how ofter I'll update. Just a word of warning. Have a good day!

Last week we went to the Botannical Gardens here in Atlanta and my friend Laura was kind enough to take a couple of photos with her camera. I figure they'll have to stave off the 'Frankie Vultures' for at least a little bit longer since the pickins' have been slim lately.

Frankie makes his best bug face.

We got grass in our backyard last week! Woooo! And it looks like some work is coming down my pipeline at megacorp, so I can afford that new point and shoot after all. Pictures soon - your patience will be greatly rewarded.

I almost forgot!

Happy Nsync-o De Mayo!

Oh, that Atlanta Ward...

Okay, so it's really the stake...
Our Stake President, Tony Parker, is in a little blurb (I'd call it a video podcast, but trust me, I worked for the church audiovisual department-they aren't that hip) over on I don't feel like re-typing all the info, so go over to Laura Pryzbyla's blog and follow her link.
Critique: I do wish that they would've put his name first because I would've automatically assumed he was an actor if I did not know him. Pres. Parker has that 'Baptist preacher - Hallelujah!' thing down.

By the way, who watched "The Mormons" on Frontline? I've heard a lot of criticisms, and there's no shortage of blog discussions about it. I'm about 3/4 of the way finished and I think it's amazing. I could be the only one...but I've been riveted every time it's been on my television. It's also given me a strong testimony of the DVR. They are true; everyone should seek to have one in his or her own home.

Finally an Update!

I went to purchase a new camera today, but they were SOLD OUT of the one I want to buy. Therefore, I'm going to have to get it from the interweb, which might take a bit longer. The good news, though, is that I've decided to throw caution to the wind and make a $200+ purchase. Thus I will feel guilty and take massive amounts of photographs to make up for spending so much on one item. In turn, you get lots of pictures of Frankie in all sorts of predicaments...sitting in his high chair....playing in his exersaucer....sitting in his stroller....lying on the get the idea.

Until then, enjoy these rather old photographs of my other child when she was but a wee pup. Now she's an eighteen pound terrorist.

And just in case you were wondering, this is why they really created photoshop.
