Recent Family Photos

10/11/09–Got Scott’s dad to snap a few quick family pics after church…Hadn’t had a family photo in 3 yrs.! Little Kerry is now 6 and Sarah is 8…and Scott and I, of course, are getting younger and younger every day!! =-)

Ah, there we go…the youngins are smiling a little in this one! 🙂

Daddy thinks he’s SOOOO clever…but you can tell by my face that I’m on to something. I can tell by Sarah’s face that she’s bursting at the seams…trying to hold it in and not tell me! Little Kerry’s like “Hee, Hee, Hee! Mom’s got rabbit ears…I’m not going to tell her…I could keep this to myself ALL day!!” =-)

Hee, Hee, Hee…it’s just the parents in on it this time…See how happy I look!! 🙂 The kids look so innocent and unsuspecting!! Hee, Hee, Hee!! =-)

(Can you tell I’ve been w/ Scott a LONG time?! Yes, I’m certainly learning some of his ways and sense of humor!! =-) )

Scott and I…I just love how serious he looks and how his expression hardly changes at all from 1 pic to the next!! How does he do that?!

My gray shows a little more in this one. It was nice to be closer to hubby though….but he looks even MORE serious in this one!

Tomorrow is…

…my little Kerry’s birthday!!  He will be 6 yrs. old…so hard to believe!!

Kids, Butterflies, and Cute Stuff

The kiddos were playing in the backyard the other day, and discovered a bunch of beautiful butterflies.
They caught a couple, and here’s one of the beauties on Kerry’s finger.

The kids’ friend, Ethan was over at our house recently, and the 3 kids piled into the old recliner! As usual, Sarah’s like the mother hen, and she’s got a little boy on either side! 🙂

Science Museum w/ Friends

The other day, we went back to the Science museum and spent a little more time. This time, the kids and I went w/ my friend Suzanne and her son Ethan.   Below are just a few of the pics I got. {The others haven’t been processed yet. (Yes, I did say “processed”…I know…how “archaic” is that, huh?! =-) ) }

A Few Current Pics

A more recent photo of me…(my regular profile pic is from 2-3 yrs. ago.) Lately, I’m usually the one behind the camera, not in front! =-) I like it that way though! Also, the older I get, the more I want to take LOTS & LOTS of photos (of my kids, events, celebrations, surroundings, nature, etc., etc., etc.)

Scott and I (this past Sunday before church.) Sarah snapped this photo! (I recently realized that we don’t have many current photos of the two of us either. Scott’s usually behind a video camera!)

Of course, “Daddy’s girl” had to have one w/ Daddy! 🙂

Does she look happy or what?! 🙂

Our Visit To The Zoo

This trip to the NC Zoo in Asheboro was a couple of weeks ago (7/25/09). We went with Scott’s cousin Phillip and his family.  Of course, I took LOTS of photos, but I’ll just share a few here:

There was a statue of an elephant that the kids wanted to get up on for photos. Here’s Kerry, Sarah, Rebecca, and Christopher. (Rebecca and Christopher are Phillip and Gloria’s kids…Phillip is Scott’s cousin from the beach.) The kids had such a great time getting together!

Here’s a tip…take pics of people at the VERY beginning. Ya know…BEFORE they’ve walked around all day in a 100 degree weather!! =-)
