Oops forgot these...

These were some of my favorites. Forgot to include them.
Hope our friends and family like them b/c you will probably be seeing them again around Christmas. :)

The Keepers

And here are the keepers. Thanks Darcy!!!!!!!! Check out her family blog to read her hilarious commentary about their photos! Seriously, I have read it twice and was there and am still laughing!

Ok boys you earned your suckers and matchbox cars. (Yes, i have no problems with bribery.)

And because my Cabana Boy loves me he agreed to do some kissy face pictures with me. It was our 10 year anniversary and we had never done anything like this before. It was a blast!!! We can't wait to do this again as an actual date with just Darcy/Darin and Cabana Boy and I. We have some pretty funny other ones but since Cabana Boy has a second job as a principal (blah blah) he doesn't want the world to see them. Booo..... Anyway... here are a few...

Oh side note... when I changed into this Principal Tonagel said, "You can't wear that at Fairfield. It is a major dress code violation." (spaghetti straps and holes in the jeans)
Oh well!!!!! Send me to Mrs. Yoder for some duct tape!" (I am a terrible Principal's wife.)

The Out-takes and my hidden talent

Does anyone have any clue how hard it is to get three boys under the age of 5 and two ADD adults to all look at the camera at the same time? Let me assure you it is practically impossible!!!

So here is the VERY first picture Darc took.
Everyone is perfect except ding dong me with my eyes closed.


Let's try NO ONE looking at the camera.

And everyone but Ben making a weirdo face.

Have you used the restroom lately??? If not, you might want to before seeing this picture.
No, I am not kidding!

Ok, so apparently I have a career in interpretive dance. I have absolutely NO CLUE what I am doing in this picture. I don't remember dancing around at all but apparently I did at some point. Look at everyone looking at me like, "Yup. She's completely lost it."

Good thing I can laugh at myself (remember the driver's license????)

Enjoy my dancing skills...

Ok, go use the bathroom. Stay tuned the next post... the ones that were usable! :)

The Photographers

So I am way behind (surprised I know) on updating the ole' blog. Last weekend we had a GREAT time hanging out with our friends the Holsopple's.  (check out their blog for the pictures I took of them.)
We ate dinner and then headed downtown to trade family pictures. First off my pal Darcy and I got our pictures snapped by Cabana Boy.

Not as much fun being in front of the camera...

Oh you look so cute! :)

Up next are the out-takes from our shoot! :)

It's like a disease

For some reason I have this problem with thinking i have more time than I really do. I love having projects going. I love to especially make gifts for people. But seriously can someone just remind me next time to buy presents for people like the rest of the world! 

Here's what I have been working on the last two weeks. 
Well actually this one just got started at 8pm last night. I had the "fabulous/idiotic" idea to make these shirts for the boys for our family pictures (in 24 hours). Nothing like waiting till the last second! 
Not hard but still really, should I be doing this right now????? 

Here are the the big bro/sis shirts for the triplets!!!! Hope you like them Kristen. I will be sending them to you early next week.
Two more shirts for a friend.
And finally bath/beach towels for the Grady kids. I bought these towels in May and have had all the supplies ready to go for like two months but it took me this long to actually get them done. Ugh... sorry kiddos once again your b-day presents are late from the Tonagels!

So... hopefully my sewing bug "disease" is out of my system for a bit. I have lots of photo shoots lined up for the next few weeks and I need all my creative juices to flow in that direction. 3 tomorrow actually!!! 
peace out yo,

Falcon Family

Thanks to my rockin' friend Darcy for our new family pic. Check out her photography blog here.  
I am going to attempt to fix Cabana Boy's eyes cause I love the boys' expressions in this picture. I will have to show a before and after eventually when I am done. I wanted a picture of us all in blue and gold showing our Fairfield Falcon spirit! I am so thankful that my husband works for this school and we are a part of this community. I love this area of Indiana!

Darcy and I are swapping real family pictures next weekend. Can't wait!!!! She is queen of family portraits. Seriously awesome! I on the other hand am not! I will be relying on her to position her own family. I am looking forward though to channeling my inner Jasmine Star and attempting some pics of her and her hubby together.
peace out, a

I just don't get it...

Brooks is NOT a fan of baby food. He is pretty picky when it comes to what he eats (which is nothing like our other two). I just don't get it. He eats cookies, cake, ice cream, coffee, cheese crackers, bread etc... but he doesn't like squash, carrots, peas, peaches... Hmm... wonder what it is???

What? Was I not supposed to crawl into the snack cupboard, dump the cookies out and eat 4 of them when you weren't looking? my bad!

Charlie, I can steal you one when Mom isn't looking if you want. They are right here. See? 

Here's to Baby #3. You know the kid who eats whatever he wants cause his parents already forced the first two to eat all the right things for their first year of life.

Night all. I am off to eat some ice cream and do some major sewing. I know a set of triplets that are going to be getting a baby brother soon so they need some new attire! pictures later when I am done. :)
