three months

dustin. is three. months. old. already. i took that picture this morning. i edited it using the tip mckmama gave the other day. except i adjusted the hue and saturation the other way to only bring out certain colors. :0) i wanted to really show the blue eyes my handsome man has.

here is one i took of him yesterday. and again i played with the saturation and hue. i really like how this one turned out. plus his SUPER cute smile.

now i've gotten most of my house cleaned up. my mom is coming over today. i am hoping to get the kitchen picked up a bit more before she comes. i hate having this messy house. i blame myself. and that's that. and it's up to me to quit being: lazy/irritated/upset/sad etc etc etc about this house. whenever i get irritated i tend to just let the house slip. i don't know why really. i wish it worked the other way...irritated means super clean house. but oh that is not the case. i have to go meet with the memories preserved lady today. so my mom is coming to watch the kiddos. and then after that i am FINALLY taking my christmas tree down. it has started to bug me. that is the downfall to having a fake tree. you don't HAVE to take it down. lord willing...it is coming down TODAY!!

thanks again for all your kind comments after my last post. i'm still doing wonderfully. god is SO good and i am SO thankful for his faithfulness to me through all of this. his love never fails me. ever. and for that i am so glad.

so because i posted pics of the handsome three month old...here are a few of the girlies. and then i'm off to make lunch and finish picking up. i knew if i did not post this now i may not have gotten the chance to later...and i needed a 'rest'. :0)

caitlyn. sitting. that doesn't happen that often!! lol.

and the other two girlies. i wish i would've changed the red eyes first. but because i need to go. you're stuck with red eyes.
so i'm off.....til tomorrow probably. because this house is going to be clean. TODAY.

14 loving words from you.:

adorable pictures!!! especially love the one of dustin where you made the green 'pop' out! how could you not want anymore, you and shaun make such beautiful kids to stop! hope you are able to get the house a little cleaner, but don't worry... a messy house is a lived in house, better than a pristine one where nothing can be out of place.
