Fix It Friday

Ok so I have been playing around with pictures and how to edit them and just be a better MOMMArazzi!!! I have photoshop elements BUT frankly it scares me!!! I really enjoy PICNIK and how easily I can fix and create better pics!!! What I need to do is... I need to take a class on PSE but with a 10 month old that is out of the question!!! SO PICNIK it is!!!

ANY WHO... I found this great website... I ♥ Faces and have been addicted to it ever since...lots of idea and great info and contests on photographs...this is my second time to enter the Fix It Friday... I had to hide the legs and the wheels because they distracted from the pic. I can't cut and past in PICNIK so I layered with some flowery thingys!!! i think it turned out cute!!!

If you want to see more or maybe you want to enter head on over to I ♥ Faces

Some Monkey LUV~N

Drew & I were nestled on the couch watching his video of Babies Can Read ...when... the doorbell rings!!! Who the heck is that??? After making sure no-one was out there I looked through the side window and saw a package...OH YEAH... I thought...Jenny said it would come today!!!
OH MY GOSH!!! look at its CUTENESS!!! I love it...wait WE LOVE IT!!! It is too cute and perfect for his upcoming Sea Monkey Party!!! Thank you to the Devines for adding a GREAT SOCK MONKEY to Drew's collection. It is hard to believe that a little over a year ago I started Project Sock Monkey... the out pouring of LOVE and support has brought me to tears MANY TIMES!!! I took a few pics of Drew's favorites...this is just a tiny bit of his collection!!!

As I am taking pics of the Sock Monkeys... I hear a phwwww sound from behind me... little miss merriweather wanted her picture taken too... don't let her cuteness fool you!!!!
I couldn't end this BLOG entry without a pic from last night... we went to a STARS game and here is my mom with Drew and her crazy... I mean dedicated friends... the theme for the night was Go Green!!!

This week in I Faces you have 2 things you can enter into... sports and pets.


I was bummed about not having any sports pics BUT then I remembered I had taken pictures of my husband trying to teach my nephew to ice skate. We had taken my nephew to a hockey game and after it was over you could skate on the ice with the players. As you can see, my nephew was ready for this...he has shorts on and is wearing my husband's socks!!! Needless to say, my hubby's back and feet were hurting by the end of the lesson!!! I love the look on their faces... hubby "how much longer???"... Nephew... "Whee this is fun!!!" I had to take this picture as they scooted slowly by...from behind the glass because they wouldn't let me on the ice!!!


This is the one and only Copper Anne. She was (yes was... she passed away on Sept. 22nd of this year... the day we brought our son home) the smartest and sweetest dog. She had numerous tricks and was a great guard dog for the nights when my husband had to work late!!! She loved getting her picture taken and this is my ALL TIME favorite shot of her!!! I miss her soooo much!!!

Well~ I'm still new at this BUT would love some comments!!! If you want to enter your pictures go to I Faces. It is really fun!!! & don't forget to check out the other entries as well!!!
