The Queen: Michelle

The Queen: Michelle
I am 28 years old. Still a princess but the queen of my family. Spoiled beyond belief. Lucky and truely blessed. A lover. A crafter. A mother. A wife. A friend. This is me.

My King: Junior

My King: Junior
The LOVE of my life! He completes me and balances me out in every way. He's a workaholic. He's loud, blunt, and crazy. He drinks Monsters like his life depends on it. Above all he is the greatest Daddy I could ever ask for, for my children. And he treats me like his Queen (and he calls me that too).

The Model Child: Diego Ray

The Model Child: Diego Ray
9 years old. My only boy. He is the epitome of the perfect child. He is so responsible and independent. Wise beyond his years. He is laughter, he is love, he is compassion, he is simply amazing. He keeps me grounded and reminds me always that I am beautiful. He is a natural born leader and takes care of the household and family better than me!

The Diva: Alayna Danae

The Diva: Alayna Danae
7 years old. She is drama. My fashionista for sure with a style all her own. Sensitive and loving when she wants to be. Thumbsucker. My biggest headache because she is the most like me. She is the only one who can cause me to become uncontrollably angry. She loves to dance. She loves to model. My bookworm and most academic.

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace
4 years old. This one is something else. She is pure comedy. Never a dull moment with her crazy antics. She is also the crybaby. She does things her own way. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to be cute to get it. My Disney loving pal. So girly. Her favorite color is pink. Loves Rapunzel. Will wear a dress every single day. Can't leave the house without a bow in her hair. She refuses.

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle
2 years old. My sweet baby. She loves her Mommy above all else. She is a cuddlebug for sure. The calmest most well behaved baby ever! But she has TONS of energy. She is so small and petite. She loves to sing and dance. She so SO ready for ballet and has yet to even step foot in a class. She loves Minnie Mouse and watching Disney Jr. She is hilarious and talks way too much.

Rainy Days and Sundays

Have I told you how much I LOVE taking pictures around water? I probably have many many times since this blog was born... or you've probably heard me say it a few dozen times if you know me personally.

Sorry, I can't help it... I do.

Water can give a picture really cool effects. The texture of running water from a faucet or waterfall can look amazing. Or how about the shiny-ness it gives to surfaces. Reflections on water, or the amazing clarity of droplets of water being splashed. The possibilities are endless.

So after Alayna's birthday party it started to storm. Not a little storm... but a full on thunderstorm complete with hail! And of course as soon as the rain died down a little... I couldn't resist making my cousins join me for some pictures in the rain.

So I took my little Sony digital camera because I wasn't gonna risk the new one getting wet... although I bet I would have gotten some awesome pictures. (I need to buy an Umbrella... I'm not sure us Arizonians even know what one looks like) Anywho... We had fun and got soaked in the process. Fun times!

Here they are:

Reason #1 why I love water... Reflections
Reason #2... It makes everything GREEN!
I love the wet look...

Reason #3... It's fun to play in!

Reason #4... Details of little droplets

Silly Little Jess

Reason #5... Beautiful Sunsets

The grass behind our house... all flooded

Reason #6... Mud!

Diego kicked water all over Jessica

Don't worry she got him back...

And as he ran from her... karma came back to get him and he slipped in the puddle

Looking for his chanclas floating away...

So that was that. The only thing that I also love about water pictures that we didn't get to see was... a rainbow! Too bad. It was getting too late. Maybe next time we'll get a storm during the day so we can see one.

I love all of your rain pictures! I need to start exploring with my camera. I would love to have a picture play day with you.

Awesome pictures! And I like the template in black, now the letters don't dissapear over the edges.

Michelle said...

Rebecca - Yes we always have fun together don't we? It's the kid in us.

Tiff - I am so ready for a playdate! I have some great ideas for trashing our dresses too! (okay maybe only yours)

Daddy - Thanks! I like the new template too. I am still working on making the background a little smaller... but it doesn't bug me anymore since the words don't disappear.
