*omygoodiness....its the last day of july* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

...which means that I ALMOST forgot to post my monthly photo with the kids in honor of my fellow Scrapping the Music DT member Aleida Franklin.... for those that have not visited my blog before... Aledia tragically lost her life in an accident almost two years ago....and she started a tradition on her blog to take photos of herself with her kids every month....for our babies don't care if we have make up on, or our hair is a mess....or if we have a few pounds to lose...they just see Mama....and sooooooo every month, I have vowed to keep that tradition alive.... and I have...and today is the last day of the month...and I almost forgot...but here I am with my babies *sigh* look at Adam...he just got home from spending two weeks with his Grandparents on his Dad's side...I have missed him! :):):):):):):):):):) He is 13 and only about a 1/2 inch shorter than me ... and I'm 5'9"!! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)



And a shot of the moon from the other night....thought it was looking pretty cool peeking at me behind a neighbor's tree! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


And today is also my BFF Dani's BIRTHDAY!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DANI!! I loveeeeeeeeeeeee you! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


And don't forget.....Blue Moon Scrapbooking announced a DT call today...come work with ME!! :):):):):):):):):):):) And Stop and Scrap is now selling Nikki Sivils' products...check it here! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)
Thanks for stopping by....I appreciate it! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  5. Great photo, Julie! You all look so lovely.
    You gave me an idea with this tradition.... I don't get enought photos with my kids, and I should do it more.
    As always, reading your post is very inspiring... :)
    Have a great weekend!

  6. I think it is a really great tradition to do. I lost my mom 8 years ago and to be honest I don't have a lot of pictures of her. It sometimes makes me sad. You are right.. We don't care if our mom's don't have makeup on or her haircut isn't what she wanted or whatever.. My mom will always be beautiful to me.. I just wish I had more pictures of her.

    Thanks for sharing.. It is a really beautiful tradition.

    Your layout are fab is always!

  8. Hi Julie, I just LOVE that photo tradition!!! It's really a great idea to follow up!! My daughter is 13 too and she's already taller than me.... (I'm 1.73 cm, don't know in inches....) They are growing up too quickly right?? My kids are spending some holiday time with their father in Turkey so I have the house all to myself. Hope I can get a creative day today!! Love, Lena

  14. I just went back to Aleida's blog through your link, I forgot how passionate she was, I pray that her children are doing well.

  29. Good Morning Julie Sweetie...
    I so love this tradition that you have carried on from you precious friend Aleida.

    I very seldom let people take my picture, and I always say another day when I have my makeup on. The funny thing is, the kids very seldom see me that way. I am going to change about having my photo taken.

    Brookie looks so precious and Adam is looking so TALL. I love the photo of the three of you. It is priceless.

    Ooh that photo would be great for an upcoming Halloween page. Wouldn't it look awesome? Oh I love it. To think that same moon was outside my window too, and I missed it.

    Have a beautiful day sweet friend. I so want to see you SOON.

    Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  31. Great photos! I didn't realize you were so tall. You are so lucky. I always wanted to be taller. What is that about always wanting what you aren't I guess? haha. I'm 5'4.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Great photo missy!!! I really should try doing that too ... so many photos but not that many of me with my boys!! Your Adam is tall way taller than my 13 year old but then I am way shorter than you LOL!!! Have a great week!!! :):)

  33. 5'9, lucky girl. Now I know where the rest of my height went to!

    That is sweet you are carrying on the tradition in memory of your friend.

    Okay TwiMom, now get that vampireress photo of you for that tree pic and lets see a layout! Do you know we have a dentist here doing veneer fangs? I want some, lol! Seriously, and the dentist is hot! hehehe
