We did our family photos in March. I had been planning and pining for the day when we could do them. I saw this incredible old barn with a touch of urban grafiti and I loved it! I just had to have our pics done there. Thank goodness the owner was compliant or I would have cried!

It would seem that moms have super powers that are imperceptible to the unkowing eye/mind. Here's a list of just a few of my/our superpowers. (I can't give out all my secrets.)
x-ray vision - an awareness of what's going on in the next room even if the door is closed
rear vision - an ability to see things behind me
mind reading - knowing what the child or spouse will say/do before it happens
flash reflexes - ability to jump up out of a lawn chair with drink in one hand, books in lap, and one shoe on to rescue child on other side of room/yard who is about to put a penny in his mouth
miracle curer - an ability to apply a single tender kiss to an injury and heal it in seconds
amazing do-it-all - accomplishing multi task items all at the same time, all correctly, while carrying on a conversation with spouse and correcting a child who is jumping on couch
super strength - let us not forget that SuperMom seems to be the only one who can change the toilet paper roll when it's done!!!

These incredibly soft chairs were from my friends Gina and Becca. Everytime I see them I think of those gals. We tried to get a couch that would match the wood on these chairs.
I LOVED the detailed scroll work on our couch. The kids actually cried when we cut up and threw away our old couches and cushions. BROTHER!!!!
