Packing, packing, and more packing...

Not much to blog about here. My days are consumed with packing boxes and getting ready for the big move. We have made some good headway, but there is still a TON to do. I am completely overwhelmed, so I thought that I would take a blogging break. :)


Packing up this house makes me wonder... do three people really need all this stuff? Seriously, we have over 100 boxes. Yikes! The most annoying thing about packing is when you realize that you need something that you already packed. For example, I went to make muffins yesterday and... no muffin tin. I need to make cupcakes for Clayton's class tomorrow but... nothing to bake them in. I would have never thought that I would need a stinkin' muffin tin twice in one week.

Just so you don't forget what my little man looks like, I'm posting a few pictures. I have been trying desperately to get some pictures for his birthday and Easter. My first attempt was last Friday with a photographer. I am 99% sure that no good pictures came from that fiasco. A noon photoshoot with a tired toddler... need I say more? We tried again this weekend and had a little more luck. I don't consider myself to be a big briber. In fact, I make a conscious effort not to bribe him. When it comes to photo sessions, however, all bets are off. I resorted to bribing, groveling, and begging that little toot to smile. Not one of my finer moments in motherhood...

The big move is on Saturday. Say a little prayer that it a) doesn't rain and b) the movers don't break any of our stuff. :)
Trying to hold up three fingers.

I am practicing a new color fade technique with my photo editing software. It's kindof between a black & white and a color photo. Cool, huh?
