a "stay-at-home" day.
Today was a stay-at-home day. After waking up to tons of snow (that was still falling) and freezing cold weather, I decided to skip Payton's dance class and just have a lazy day at home. Good for me, bad for the girls. 'Cause I did the same thing yesterday and skipped taking Payton to playschool. Oops. I didn't realize how just one little outing in the day really breaks it up for the kids. I, of course, am always happy to stay home, but I guess my kids have gotten used to their schedule. So tomorrow, snow, cold and all, we'll be getting in the car to get Payton to playschool. Can I do it? We'll see! (haha)
Honestly, I am just feeling so PREGNANT lately. At 30 weeks I'm getting bigger, tired, and the smallest task seems like a huge one. AAaahhh! Only a couple months to go, but I feel like I could have this baby tomorrow. What the heck am I going to be feeling like in March??? Scary-ness, I tell ya.
ANYWAYS, amidst the hair-pulling, time-outs, mess-making and fighting today (I told you the girls were having some cabin fever!), I DID manage to get out my new camera and play around a bit. "Play" is the keyword here. I was basically turning knobs and pushing buttons and I had no clue what I was doing! But I did get some cute shots...very unplanned, but what the heck. I'm excited to learn how to use this camera...I figure in about a year I'll know what I'm doing. Haha!!
Here are the ones I got of Payton...(and yes, she's wearing a swimsuit. She dresses herself, okay?)
And Gabby-Gabbs...(I love the crumbies on her lips and in her hair from snack time!)
Like I said, LOTS to learn, but at least I finally got that darn camera out of the box. I haven't taken any pictures since Christmas so this was fun! Okay, off to watch American Idol. Soooooo excited that it's on again!
