Meg madness

While we should have been enjoying our Christmas Day and celebrating the true meaning of Christmas, Dave and I were worrying about baby Meg. I'll get into more detail later, but she was having difficulty breathing for a good part of the day and after we attempted to enjoy our Christmas supper, we took her to the emergency room. She was not-so-quickly admitted to the Pediatric floor and that's where we (Meg and myself) spent the next almost 3 days. Now I'm trying to catch up on house work and all the other random things that this SAHM does daily. Please be patient while I try to catch up...yet again! :)

F for fail

Excuses, excuses, excuses. I could have a million excuses for why I have failed at blogging lately. I won't even start because I'll just depress myself with things I could be doing... and am not. Ugh. Regardless... I have been rocking at some things. Very few. But rocking them. Hard. BUT I won't start on that list either because I don't want to gloat ;) so I'll just play a little catch up and move on.

Where to start... a lot has happened in the last few weeks. None detrimental to keeping up with the Smith's. Nothing life changing. Nothing 'important' really. Just life. I'll do what I do best, and explain in photos... so here goes...

oh boy... Halloween was the last I posted anything of significance... could be a long post    :|  hang in there faithful readers... we have missed an entire month.

and then there was Thanksgiving! Another wonderful meal provided by my aunt. Seriously. I want more now! This year was absolutely amazing weather so the kids took advantage and got rides from Uncle Swade and loved it!

Luke...unhappy about the photo. Nothing else going on here. Just pissed.

I have a hard time NOT taking photos of this little lady. She's just too darn cute! More December updates to come. I promise. Okay... let's be honest... I'll tryyyyy ;)

daily Smith fashion

It's been quite awhile since this fella got featured on daily Smith fashion. He now likes having his photo taken so I'm going to take full advantage of that. And to boot, he's just too darn cute :)
(I think this was a Thursday mass for school. He likes to be fancied up!)

four together

This year we're fortunate enough to have the four oldest kids in the same school together. This is the very first time their school has a kindergarten program, and I know there are a lot of families extremely excited about this. Less running for us, and I love that they're all in the same building to look out for each other a little bit. It's a small school to begin with but I like that the littlest ones are now with the "big" kids.

Peyton (12-1/2) 7th grade

Lia (10)  4th grade

Austyn (7-1/2)  2nd grade

Tayt (almost 6!)  kindergarten

They're all doing very well with their studies, and I'd say they did an excellent job with their photos this year ;) I let them pick their own background. Tayt picked his because "we live in American, Mom." :)

Also, I'm completely aware and not very excited that they're all looking very old in these photos. After posting this I'll be going to tell them to ssslllooowww down. Mom can't handle it ;)

one month young

I know I say this with each of my children, but where does the time go? Blows my mind really. Tomorrow this little gal will be 5 weeks old. FIVE WEEKS. I don't get it. They're supposed to stay little. Just a little longer... that's all I ask :) already she is starting to smile. and coo. and wanting me to hold her on my chest for hours and hours. I really cannot complain, we have another very easy going baby on our hands, and I'll gladly hold her on my chest for hours and hours :)

per Casey's request, I played around with one of my newest photography props.
Drew Meg fit perfectly.
(oops...I still call her by the wrong name occasionally) :)

random daily goodies

Our last couple weeks and weekends have been quite busy. Mostly just random things here and there but I've been way behind on blogging. And cleaning. And almost everything else... I guess that's just life. Here are a few photos off my camera. Just complete randoms. But I thought you'd enjoy... so... enjoy :)

Lia helped watch Meg during a family shoot last weekend
for whatever reason, this blows my mind... brothers... with babies. MIND BLOWN.

I watched the boys and prepared for a senior photo shoot. They were very willing to be my subjects :)
and then Nash had to do the same as Luke...

I promise I'll be back with something more interesting very soon. I have some 1 month photos of Meg that need to be posted before she turns 2 months... how is that HAPPENING!!! as I'm hearing her scream from the other room... back again another time :)

And here is how the rest of our Halloween went... this post has been waiting for me to finish it. I wanted to have it done last week. I'm lazy. Period. Oh well... here goes...

The night started and ended pretty well. The only one making a fuss at the end of the night was Meg... she was beyondddd hungry. Oops!
