This Is.....



This picture surprised me. Can anyone explain to me why this Mom is being so mean to the delicious treat monster?

What did it ever do to her?



This is my Mom's wedding dress. I love it. I imagine it could be something worn around Henry VIII's time.



This is my Dad at the beach. He's like a big kid.



This is my Mom. She loves bugs, horses and plants.



This is me at the beach. I get cranky when I'm hot. And no, I did not plan on Natalie and I matching. It just happened like that.



This is my husband Tom. He plans on scaring off Natalie's dates by cleaning his shot gun when they stop by to pick her up.



This is Natalie. She doesn't mind getting dirty.



This is Tommy. He starts second grade tomorrow. Where does the time go?

  3. You.Are.Stunning.Amber!!! I love allll those pictures. The one of Tommy is very startling-- so clear and crystallized (for lack of better word) I didn't realize your hair was that long... Mine used to be! This is like the opening day of a brand new Gymboree-- these pictures. Just love them!!! :)

    Oh, and I get very cranky when I am hot too.

  9. Thank you so much for this posting. It's great to finally be able to put faces (or in some cases, backs) to the various names.

    Your daughter doesn't look like she could kill a dentist with her incisors. Looks must be deceiving!

  17. Love the picture of Natalie playing in the sand. Reminds me of my girls when they were small. They sure didn't mind getting dirty and I let them. Soap and water always got them clean! lol

  18. Amber, I don't want to sound superficial, but damn your kids are super-gorgeous!

    As for the date intimidation, I always said I'd just kill the first boyfriend, and hope that word got around... I'm KIDDING-- I'm definitely THE most non-violent person on the planet, but it helps to make jokes!

    How lovely that your mom and dad get to play with their grandchildren!

  28. You mom loves bugs? She had a great wedding dress. Love Natalie all covered in the sand.

    I think the MOm was trying to fight off unhealthy snacks - looks like a 70s ad.

    I found you from SITS and really enjoyed this post.
