Picords

First Pictures, then Words























































I know, I think I'm still on vacation.
I'm so far behind it's sick.

I will catch up, really I will!!
Between returning from our trip, becoming an aunt again (TODAY!!!!), and chicks being born in kindergarten classrooms, I haven't figured out if I should peep to my new little nephew, or coo to the hatching chicks.

We had a beautiful day today, 50 degrees, I picked up Jackson from school, met up with three of my favorite mom friends, and with 11 children, we walked a nice mile to a park "nearby."

Not interesting in parting ways with each other afterwards, we carried on the party over hot dogs and French fries, Chocolate cake shakes, vanilla shakes and a cold frosty beer from the joint us Chitown broads refer to as Portillo's.
Tomorrow is a last minute surprise birthday party for Gavin, the son of my favorite momfriends. Bdd and I were due for a date night, but it's going to be this instead. Which is fine, we love our next block over friends, the kids love their kids, and it's safe to walk home after a few beers.
They missed us. According to them, they'd drive past our house, just to be reminded of us. I missed their group too.
How ever could we move from here?
I don't know if we could.
But it's been/being discussed.


Welcome To Crustybeef~
I love my new nephew, and so proud of my baby sister and her husband! Mazel Tov!

Congratulations on your new nevvie!

Those pictures are so pretty - what a gorgeous ceremony that must have been. And look how pretty you are - I am in lust with your hair. I knew it already from that shot of your highlights, but it really is a cute cut too.

I've seen people pay over 100$ something dollars for full highlights..me? you don't want to know..in this type of town, he's a secret, with the wealth of my town..but you would love him..I met him at a going away party for my friend thatmoved to Arizona./..he does amazing work!

Andrew: I've been told that by Mosiac based on the relative stories of the little ones! So see, you definitely know I rock as a person now, and am very chill, although a bit neurotic..and I will admit that!! As you well know from our chats!

Happy Spring!
Always,
Elizabeth

jyankee: So my question is does it match your 3lb image? Like a story and then characters..is it what you pictured? I've often wondered that based on my own images and how accurate they are when I see a picture..it makes me feel as growth has occured, a more connection so to speak, something, a link that ties us, even if it's a string, a string can be made of silk and stretch forever!

Blessings to your weekend!
Always,
Elizabeth
