**total coincidence: the girls are watching Nightmare Before Christmas in this picture.
These two frames used to house Nightmare Before Christmas pictures that I got while at Disneyland. They have been in these frames since I got them on our honeymoon in 2001. Did I ever mention that we had the perfect honeymoon for us (I say "us" because I realize that that's not a dream honeymoon for most!) We went to Disneyland to see the Haunted Mansion turned into the Nightmare Before Christmas (the 1st year it was done) and the next night we went to see Jane's Addiction.
So anyway, I finally took the posters out and replaced them with pictures of my angels! If you had told me back in 2001 that one day I'd replace my treasured NBC posters with pictures of my kids, I'd have said SHUT UP! But didn't they turn out awesome! Thanks to Mary A for cutting mats for them. I can't stop staring at them. Is that bad? Oh and I've stored my other posters for the future. When I have a playroom for the girls or a rec room or a den or just more space!

This is one of the prints framed above. It's slightly different than the one I posted previously.

More of that handsome boy Nicolas.

Crazy Ava.

Too bad that sun was so bright.

I will be posting more from this day. I know, you're done with them but I'm not:)

I have baked these twice in the last week.
They are called Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups and the recipe is on my recipe page. The consist of: puff pastry, peanut butter, chocolate and marshmallows with a little powdered sugar on top.

I'm done reading About a Boy (it was as good as the movie) and have finished listening to Middlesex. I'm now reading Wizards First Rule (oh yeah, I'm reading a geeky fantasy book!) and listening to The Thorn Birds. My friend Jocelyn and I used to watch that movie on VHS while eating popcorn covered in MSG. Literally and liberally sprinkled with MSG. That stuff is good!
If you ever wonder why I mention what I'm listening to or reading it's because I like to hear about good books myself. If someone mentions a book and I've not heard of it, I'll go look to see if I want to read it. That's all. Thank you. Bye Bye.

Those pictures look great! Those frames are perfect. One day, I'll get around to doing the same kind of thing.

Those peanut butter cup things look yummy...

I love the pics! Funny thing, when you said you took out posters of NBC my first reaction was REALLY???? Haha! The girls look AWESOME! I love those pics! All of them!! The desert looks great! I remember thinking that the last time you posted it, but I forgot to try it for myself. I always enjoy hearing about what you are enjoying (books) even if I don't read! Hahaha!

I never get tired of the kids! The framed photos look fantastic. The dessert, yummy. Will you please bring me some? Please? I love hearing what books you read! I've read your suggestions several times. BTW you have seen Stephanie Meyers has a new one coming out right?

They turned out awesome! If you bring corinnea the dessert then I want some too! You brought them once before and they were delicious! I like hearing about your books too because if I ever decide to start reading outside of school stuff then I know whats good!

Jocelyn said...

The pictures of the girls turned out beautifully. I love the ones you chose to frame. What's the size of the photos and the size of the frames?

OMFG - I cracked up so hard when I read the part about the Thorn Birds and the popcorn!!!! I still love that epic story, even though its kind of soap opera-ish. Can you believe Mike sat through the WHOLE 8-hour mini series with me? Now that's love. =D. And the popcorn......! I remember loving that stuff so much. I have to laugh at how much I loved the taste of MSG, which I would never eat now!

The pictures are so pretty! And I like what you've done w/ the frames(eventhough you had to sacrifice NBC.)
I was lucky enough to try those peanutbutter cups- they were really yummy!
