Hanging out…..

I’ve started telling my babysitters that they can give my kids snacks, but when I get home, I don’t want to know what they’ve eaten because it’s all over my house and on their body. Maybe I should take my own advice. I have a sinking suspicion that when my kids are older they are going to ask me more than once why I didn’t bother washing their faces before I took the picture. My defense? Just keeping it real.

    HAHAHA! The messy pictures are the best! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog– I am so glad you liked it! I just want to celebrate my family and I love how your blog does that and is “keeping it real” hehe! I have a new section called “Family to Family” where mom’s can leave their stories and pictures about their kids. I’d love to hear a story from you! Have a wonderful day 🙂

    Thank god I’m not the only one with tons of photos of my kids with crud all over their faces!! lol!

  6. Funny how that happens. Most of the time I don’t notice the dirty faces on my children until I get out in public. Thank goodness for wet wipes in my purse!

  7. Oh my, seriously Angie- you have the cutest little angels. I love the twins red hair, LOVE it, and chubby cheeks!!

    So cute. I often look back at pictures and think what a cute picture…if only she didn’t have cracker crumbs all over her face 🙂
    It is real life. I love real life!

  11. Okay, why do you always look like you came out of a salon? Don’t you have FIVE kids? and TWO TWO year olds? and the kitchen shots in the last photos? Where is the mess? Just exactly how much time do you spend cleaning every day. I think I may just hate you. 😉

  12. So cute…love the mucky faces!

  13. I reiterate what Kristen said!! Girl you look fabulous!

    I love these pictures! So fun and they are real! 🙂

  16. Who needs a wipe when you have mugs like that? So cute!

    I love that collage option on Picasa, but whenever I do it the name of my camera is below every shot! Am I doing something weird?
