Well, according to the title, my 365 is complete today. I made it to 365 posts, which is only part of this challenge. The other part, I failed miserably! I am almost 5 months behind on completing one picture a day for 365 days. Overall, I loved that I completed this project, I am sad that it's done and disappointed that I didn't plan better for my last picture, but this is our life, the picture for today is one that I will cherish because nothing pleases me more than watching my little girl trot around on a horse. And what makes this picture even more special is she is practicing to ride in her very first horse show which is in exactly 9 days. (She made me do a countdown, can you tell she's excited?)



This week was circus themed at preschool. I got crafty making shirts for Miles to wear to his Tuesday/Thursday classes. I had so much fun using fabric paint to create these for him and he enjoyed wearing them!!

Circus theme is not complete without face paint! His teachers are so sweet to paint all the kid's faces that wanted them done. Miles was a "clown fireman" :)

Heaven on earth!! What a treat to see the sun after days of rain! It came out just in time for sunset, but I still enjoyed it immensely!


Rain is much more tolerable when you have a little boy in rain boots that loves puddles :)

Family dinner! Fun times :) Al and Acilia love crab legs, so we did the all you can eat crab legs! Miles and I were grossed out as usual, but it was still fun :)

We are fostering chicks for a few weeks; the kids are loving it! They each got to name one...

Miles named this chick "Dumper"

Acilia named this chick "Flash"

Miss Acilia is eager to start doing some chores around the house. I worked to come up with a list of things "worthy" of making money in this house...
The list hangs in the kitchen. I still want to get it laminated so it will hold up :)

She's got this little note coming in the morning, her payment for walking the dogs this afternoon :)

Completely random and boring, but a picture no less!! I ordered Architectural Digest and kept every single copy for the year, not because I wanted to save them (found the magazine to be rather dull) but for a way to pay myself back for the money I "wasted" SO, they are for sale now ;) Took the picture today for the ad :) :) :)

I was dreaming today about a bunny farm in our future. We were at a local zoo, which has bunnies, I loved watching their huge lop eared named Cadbury grazing openly and looking completely content :) I snapped a few pictures of the surrounding area and plan to recreate someday when we have more property! What a dream :) I noticed there were a few little hills in there, and a drain in the center, I think that's a fab idea to keep it from getting muddy after rain! I get chills with excitement just thinking about it!


Mini cannolis absolutely adorable and oh so tasty!

Lunch of champions for the 4 year old ;)


The grass was glittered with tiny white flower petals from the trees! It was spring's version of snow! Gorgeous! Unfortunately not captured too well :)

Took the kids to their favorite restaurant today for lunch :) There was a long wait to be seated, so I treated them to ice cream sundaes!


My little clone :)

Cheerleader girl! She got the award for being most "bendy" :)


My sweet Cya and I don't get a lot of time alone together anymore, with her being in school full time, I took this beautiful day in the park as a perfect chance to capture her in pictures!

My study area today, the weather was gorgeous and I figured I better sit outside otherwise, I won't be able to concentrate :)
