How do I capture each moment????

My sweet babies laying on the couch together watching TV.

Lexi and Ayden in their hats. Lexi was playing dress up with the hat she just had to have from the dollar section at Target and so ofcourse Ayden had to have a hat also. As for the rest of Lexi's outfit.....don't ask me!!!! Notice that one of Ayden's sponge bob valentines for his party at Mrs. Shirleys is included. He carried that card around all day!!! I also have a picture of Ayden in Lexi's boots, but David would not be happy if I posted it;)

My little miss priss!!!!

Ayden in his "big boy bed"!! I can't believe he has slept four nights in a row now without getting up once!!!

The past couple of days I have been feeling like I don't do a good enough job of taking pictures and video taping my kids. I always say, "I have to get that on camera", and then I never do!! I have piles and piles of pictures and keepsakes to put into the kids' scrapbooks, but I never make time to work on them. When Lexi was born, I promised myself that I would keep up with her scrapbook and here I am now with two kids and two bins full of memories just thrown in a pile!!!!! So I have been asking myself, how do I catch up on their scrapbooks for the past couple years??? How do I make myself remember to always have the camera or video recorder ready??? I love my kids so much and feel that time is just flying by way too fast. I just wish time would stop. I love how fun Ayden is right now! He is talking so much and says everything in such a cute way!!! Every minute is exciting!!! Lexi is the sweetest big sister in the world. She plays with him all the time, takes care of him, teaches him things, and just makes him happy! He just adores her and it is so sweet......I don't ever want that to change!! So, my goal is to go get the camera or video recorder instead of saying "I will get that next time". I want to make time each weekend or atleast every other weekend to atleast do a couple pages in each of their scrapbooks. We will see how this goes, but I have got to capture these special moments in my life!!!! I love every minute of it!!!! I posted a couple of pics above from the last few days at home when I DID actually grab the camera;)



  1. aw..tons of pictures dont make you a good mommy-just being YOU does. =D

  2. Ash, Enjoy the time with your kids now and when they have grown up and go off to college and you are missing them then you can sit down and work on the scrapbooks and reminisce on all of the great times you spent with them!!!!

  3. Thanks Kelsey!!! And thanks Kelly! You are right I can save some for the college years! At the rate I'm going now, I'm sure I will have plenty left;)
