Editing FUN

Something about this picture just gets me. It's so Paxton. I love how his eyelashes are inter-twined, how his mouth is puckered and how his hair falls around his face. I just did a classic Black and White conversion...I think I'm finally getting the hang of it. I wouldn't call this a grey-scale. :)

In this edit I added a texture (the bokeh (dots) in the background) it's just something to make the picture fun...I like it! It's different, but fun!

Ten on Wednesday

1. In the blogging world Ten on (Tuesday) is the norm, but for me Wednesdays just work better, so for now I'll do Ten on Wednesday :)

2. Today at Miss Cindy's, Paxton, made a Thanksgiving wreath-ish :) On it Cindy had written different things that Paxton was thankful for (she'd ask and he'd tell her different things) a few of my favorite were his toothbrush, the color red (rojo), and of course his mommy and daddy.

3. Paxton and I have been baking a lot. His favorite part is cracking the eggs and mixing with the beater. I love cooking with him, but then we have cookies or muffins sitting on the counter and when they're there they get eaten, usually by me--that's not good!
4. Today it was a sunny 83 degrees in Cancun...only 22 more days!

5. I'm finally feeling like normal again after my root canal last week, except now I have to get my wisdom teeth pulled. That takes place tomorrow! :(

6.This Friday is my dad's birthday (Happy Birthday Dad) but the parents are leaving out of town to go have an early Thanksgiving with the grandparents so we won't be able to celebrate. Hope you have a great birthday dad.....Happy Birthday Papa :)

7. This year for Christmas we've decided to do gift exchange at my parents. We've set a spending limit and each couple is supposed to come up with two gifts. We'll then exchange them in a white-elephant-ish way. This is proving to be more difficult than I anticipated because I want to make sure I have the best gift, the most creative-off-the-wall-usable-gift. We'll see how it turns out.

8. Finally last night there were a few good dances on SYTYCD. When ever I watch that show I really wish I could dance...if only :) I have decided that I'm going to look into getting Paxton into some kind of dance. He loves watching the show, and I think it will be a great way for him to get out a LITTLE of his extra energy. I say little, because I don't think we'll ever find anything that could even possibly come close to using half of his energy.

9. I really wish Amy lived closer. Best-friends aren't supposed to live so far apart. Hopefully sometime in the near future I'll be able to fly down to Arizona for a visit! I'm thinking Spring!

10. On Saturday we went to the girls' birthday party. Paxton had a great time, and I still can't believe that they are 7...how time flies!

ToT (Ten on Tuesday, or Wednesday)

1. The was really supposed to have been posted yesterday, but I sorta' forgot :)

2. I have had the worst imaginable toothache this last weekend, I went in to see the dentist on Monday and now I have to get a root canal, oh and then Thursday I'll be getting the rest of my wisdom teeth pulled. I guess it as just my week to have dental work done.

3. Our babysitting duties are over, Josline was a great little girl. She did better than I thought for it being her first time away from her parents. Paxton didn't like sharing his mommy, but I think he did enjoy having another person in the house to play with....but it's not pushing us to have another baby anytime soon.

4. Exactly 30 days until we leave for Cancun...YAY baby! That means I better get tanning :)

5. Can you believe that it's almost Thanksgiving? I can already smell the Turkey roasting and my amazing fruit salad :)

6. So this year I'm a little disappointed with SYTYCD (So You Think You Can Dance) I haven't seen any great dances or dancers for that matter. I remember that most seasons I already have my favorite by the first show or two...this year not so much, maybe soon. Especially since I recruited some new watchers, this isn't the season to become a fan.

7. I really love living in Wenatchee this time of year. The colors are amazing!

8. I can't believe that this weekend the girls will be celebrating their 7th birthday...I remember when they were born. It was the year after I graduated and Jr. and I were living in Yakima, I was able to get off work and we went home to see them. They were so little and precious! I'm so glad I've been able to be around for almost all of those 7 years.

9. I really should finish this and start studying for my test...that isn't as interesting though.

10. It's Wednesday-Hump day! Have a great rest of the week!

Ten on Tuesday...(something new)

1. I've been so bad at blogging the past two weeks, no reason really...just a little busy!

2. Ten on Tuesday is where I find 10 random things to talk about, nothing particular really just whatever I want to talk about :)

3. Paxton is blowing my mind everyday. He is starting to remind me of a 4 year-old more than a two year old...I'm telling you, he knows things that most 2 year olds don't know. I've been told before that I have an old soul, and I'm starting to understand what that meant because sometimes I feel like Paxton, too, has an old soul. ;)

4. Paxton rode a horse for the very first time this past weekend. He's gone to see the horses before with Papa, but has never actually gotten on. I think that the first time we went to see the horses he wouldn't even touch one, and now he's comfortable enough to ride one. It was short-lived however...he wanted off almost as quick as he wanted on. I'm still proud though, he's making steps!

5. Starting tomorrow I'll be watching a 1 year old for almost a week. Her parents are going on a much deserved vacation :) We'll see how it goes, I'm looking forward to having her and I'm sure Paxton will enjoy her company...she might not enjoy him though :)

6. You know what comes along with having a 1 year old around? ....another person to take pictures of. She probably won't even mind!

7. Fall is here. I. Love. It!

8. Everyday I keep telling myself I need to get started on Christmas...maybe tomorrow!

9. I love the new show Trauma. It's on Monday nights, if you haven't watched it yet--DO! I'm sure you'll love it just as much!

10. Today I dropped Paxton off at the park to play with Miss Cindy and the boys. He really loves them. When we're heading to the car after I've picked Paxton up he'll say his goodbyes and tell me, "momma they are my best friends." How cute is that?

See there you have it...Ten on Tuesday. Maybe next week I'll get more creative, but for now this will work. And since most of you tune in to see pictures here's some more :)
