settling in

this is therapeutic for me i promise
i will pay no attention to the fact that it just took me 35 minutes, one pacifico and a half a bag of sun chips to connect to the internet
thanks honey for fixing it *smile*

although that is not therapeutic and rather a nuissance that makes me wish i didn't rely on technology so darn much, writing and documenting is so important to me. and the fact that it is so easy to capture all these fantastic memories and strategically and creatively place them here for all to see is simply magical.

why then do i put off doing it until i have 1000 pictures to sort through and decide which will be the winners??
well because we moved, and although i would like to use that excuse well into the new year and possibly beyond, we are mostly settled. with only the boring papers to sort through and file and a few things to hang on the walls. i could truly make this out to be a torturous organizational game down to alphabetizing the spice rack, but i know there are way more important things in life right now...

an awesome beach day with my friend shauna and her little boy aiden, the babies had so much fun running around the beach. bayley was fearless when it came to running in the water and took a face plant right in the sandy water, she got up soaked and stunned and just laughed

she knew how to paint once i handed her the brush. this was her first time not using her fingers and she proved to be a little michaelangelo for sure. carefully dipping the brush in the different colors (except towards the end when she got a little crazy, mad, artist-ish)
