Family Photo

Well, we went to JCP to take our family pictures. Every pictures, except one came out... bad. The only one that had everyone smiling, wasn't the best one either because I looked dorky laughing at the photographer who was trying to get my children to smile. She was making some funny moves.

Can you guess who wasn't up for pictures? Yep, PETER!!! Because of that, I have already reschedule to retake them. I'm really hoping to get better ones next time. Please, Peter.. my son, you know I love you but cooperate for mommy. I like photos of my family, sentimental value. Memories. I want to create them. Why not?

What I got for Valentine's...

Should have posted this sooner but anyway, here's mine. It's the little things!

We were able to go out to eat without the kids. Grandma and grandpa kindly watched our children. We really didn't know what to do. How sad is that? We normally don't go out or celebrate Valentine's but this year we figured why not. Instead of going out to a fancy restaurant, we tried out Smash burger. (laughs) It was the closest drive to where we were staying and being hungry we figured we try that place out since we live close and it was already close to 1pm. Earlier, we had to take Peter to the pediatrician for his vaccination shots. After that, we dropped him home and fed the kids before heading out to the Caverns! Yep, how romantic, right?! Ha Ha! I think I know what you're thinking... going to the cave on Valentine's day? Like I said, we didn't know what to do. I know that we didn't do anything fancy instead we did something different but enjoyable! Not a bad way to start off, right? Keep in mind, we never celebrate this holiday. Someday in the near future we'll be able to go out to a nice restaurant, not a fast food place. :) Before heading home, we've decided to hang out at the Outlet Mall since it wasn't too far from the Caverns. It was nice to be able to spend some times together for a couple of hours. Thanks grandma and grandpa for babysitting for us!

FBC Valentine's banquet

We had our Friendship Baptist Church Valentine's Banquet yesterday. Although, it was cold that day some members still managed to show up. We had several others who couldn't make it but all in all we had a wonderful time. We didn't want anyone to feel singled out so we made sure that everyone was invited. It wasn't focused on a couple, that is. We've played games such as Valentine's Bingo with M&M, Minute to Win It "Heart Stacks", Valentine's Word Scramble and Bible couples quiz. Whoever wins, gets prizes. We wanted the church to get together for food, fun and fellowship.

Behind the scene: with my family of five

I forgot to post this photos of us yesterday. Let me just say, it's hard taking pictures with small children. They get bored easily. Don't sit for long. Distracted. Cranky. And so forth. I should have posted Peter's precious mad face on here, I just didn't think of it. Here, we are trying to get ready for our family portrait. Can't you see how hard it was to get them to settle for a picture? My favorite is the one with Joanna bursting out laughing. Taking photos of my own family is HARD. I was thinking of having it professionally done but several photographers are charging $200.00! *sighs* That's just too expensive for me. If you haven't known, I can take pictures... well, for fun. Not professionally or anything but it's my hobby. The problem is, I just can't do my own family. Hence, the much needed help. So, how did I get these photos taken? I asked my father-in-law. I set it up and just told him to snap photos of us. He did. He even tried to get the kids attention. The picture before this one, I have photoshopped the background. It was actually the couch and yes, I've changed up the color. I think I found the solution to not spending to much money, is to ask for my family to help. Just press the button down. Voila! COST for my family portrait = FREE

I do all I can do to S.A.V.E. moo-lah
