Daddy Bacle make ya jump, jump.

We were installing our new shutters, so we pushed the sofas together to make what turned into a living room trampoline for these two. They ended up sleeping there that night. Fun times.

I won't ask for much this Christmas. I won't even wish for snow.

Dear Santa, please pick up my house, put it on stilts, and plunk it down right here. Easy enough, right?

You make me wanna roll my window down and cruise.

Birdie treated our last dinner on our vacation like she was on a cruise--meaning, she pulled out her fanciest clothes. I'm telling you, she was really digging that buffet. We were waiting for the rest of our 57-person party to be ready, so we snapped a few pics.

So many activities. My head is spinning from all the activities....

Here are some of our favorite activities from our vacay to Lost Pines. 
First, the food. Birdie was hilarious. I guess we've never taken her to a buffet before, because after we were seated in the dining area and we went to go get our plates, she stopped, put her hands in the air and said:
So, wait a second. You can just go up there and get anything you want?! This is AWESOME!
The dessert buffet:

She was a fan.

This was for a movie on the lawn with smores. 
I mean, c'mon. 
You know I have to show documentation of these things so future Momma can show future whiny, teenage Bacle children that life isn't so bad.

Light saber fight at sunset. Tops.

On the last day, Winston was finally brave enough to go down the slide by himself.

lost in the woods

This summer, I took the kids on a couple of cool vacations. One of my best friends and I have 7 kids between us, and we thought it would be fun to take them all somewhere before school started and kindergarten would begin the trap of keeping us home from now until graduation. 
Kids, are you sure you don't want to be homeschooled? 
After three failed attempts at a Florida beach trip, we ended up going to a resort called Lost Pines outside of Austin. It was perfect.

I have a few more posts from here, and then I'll put up the trip we did end up taking to Florida. Was there any doubt I'd figure out a way to get to the beach? :)

I see the magazine workin' that Photoshop.

My latest photo venture is my first real avenue into getting pics published. The fancy pants neighborhood next to us has its own magazine, and I'm the primary photographer for their covers and featured stories. Here's my cute assistant holding the most recent copy.

I spy with my little eye....

swimming with the fishes tiles

Do you remember me talking about my biggest photo gig I've had so far? I finally have pictures of the finished product. 

Here's the link to my photo page post: 
I think it's so cool that Birdie's tile will be at Nordstrom for years to come.
