(Yes, Nora is wearing the same shirt she wore the other day.)

Nora's new favorite thing to do - carry Mia to us.  Mia loves it, too, she always squeals and laughs!

My iPod.  It has been my best friend every night from 8-9 for the last couple of weeks while working out.

Bunny Hat!  Mia will put her bunny on her head anytime you say 'bunny hat.'  She thinks it is so funny! She also started putting it on her head while crawling since if she has it in her hand it slows her down.  She is such a silly girl and constantly makes us laugh!

Today we went to a princess tea party at the Disney Store.  There were about 20 little princesses there, and they played games and decorated their own tea cups.  Nora had a great time!

We had a playdate at the mall today.  It was really challenging to get my settings right, because the light was weird in there - I was SO tempted to just switch my camera into auto, but I'm glad I didn't.  I feel like I've learned so much recently, but I know there is lots more to learn!

Mia found the fake food drawer today.  Except she didn't think it was a 'fake' food drawer, and had to taste everything in there to make sure she wasn't missing out on anything!

The girls reading this morning.  I am so glad they both love books and being read to!

Miss Mia helping me grocery shop!  You can see here how in some lights the fuzz on her head looks reddish.  I can't wait to see what her hair will look like, but if she's anything like her sister in that regard, I will have to wait at least another year!

Nora's "pirate man."  Don't ask me why she called him that!  The thing to the right is his ball, and the huge lump on the left is his bag that he carries his lunch in.  Love 2 year-old's imaginations!

My photo today isn't very inspired, but I have been s.i.c.k.  My teapot has been my best friend today!  Shot in manual using my 50mm lens.  I then did a black and white conversion and selective color action.

In this photo I was playing around with some actions and chose a vintage one.  I then added a texture to it for a completely different look!  The original was shot in manual, as are all of the photos I am going to post from here on out.

Nora's Lalaloopsy dolls - she has been playing with these constantly for the last few days!

My big girl...not much of a toddler anymore :(

This is my favorite house in the town we live in.  It's not big, it's not fancy, but there is just something about it that makes me happy.  Too bad it's not for sale!

Tonights dinner.  One of my best friends makes the best tostadas, and fries her own shells.  C loves mexican food and tostadas are one of his favorites, so I figured I would give it a try.  They turned out really well!

It was a beautiful day to start out the new year!
