Happy Anniversary to me!

Friday makes Nic and Me 17 years together. seems like a very long time to me, like I can't possibly be that old. and yet, I am and we are and all of that. So after assessing everything, we have had many more good times than bad, and many more happy than sad and all that jazz. so it is a happy anniversary. We have been tolerating each other a great long while. Half of my life. We have 2 beautiful kids and many memories of time spent together. So happy anniversary Nicolas. Cheers!

I can't believe it.

but I guess it is true. I have been a mom for 4 years. Dominic is a four year old little boy. here are some blurry pictures of his party. and some from tonight at starbucks. for posterity.











oh and this is a pic from my birthday. of my IL and G. only notable cause the very cute dress G is wearing is one my mom made in 1976 or so for me to wear. the beat goes on.


and last. a word about bad glasses. I took this picture of us tonight, without first removing my glasses because I like to see. it would be a great picture of the 2 of us, if not for the BIG UGLY GLASSES.



I used to have nice frames. they were those really nice expensive flexon ones that are supposed to be able to take a licking, well, flexon met Genevieve and Genevieve prevailed. she broke them at the temple and they are unsalvagable and would need to be replaced. I refuse to buy another pair of glasses. I have already decided I will be getting lasik. so the only frames I have are my 'spare pair' from 29dollarglasses.com and boy howdy are they ugly. I bought them strictly for in bed and because they were STURDY. but until I have enough time or brain power to remember to go get the consultation and surgery done they are it for me.

so let that be a lesson to you all, or something.

Movie. Dominic's wild dancing.

this dance was making Genevieve laugh hysterically, you might hear it in the background.

We make friends.

We like Starbucks, I don't think I need to tell anyone this fact. it is where we go when we need to get out of dodge. I also probably don't need to tell you my kids are pretty cute and tend to be popular with the young ladies. The other day they met some young ladies who were very sweet and cute and I received permission to make them famous by featuring them on Dominic and Genevieve's blog.

Daisy and Friends, please let me know your names in a comment so I can add it to the post.












Shay might recognize the thing G has taken from my purse as the CVS freebie lipgloss from last week. ;)

Dominic's adventures in photography

Dominic is a real excellent photographer. he has a natural eye for it. here is an example of his work from a recent trip to the post office for a passport for Genevieve.

It is amazing to me that I have never had to worry about him breaking the camera, he is and always has been such a careful kid. I am just now learning about the destructive nature of babies from G, who at this very moment is attempting to destroy a backyardigans book. probably trying to free them from the pages so she can eat them.
