*Its Official* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all....


Sooooooo... here are the facts..... :)

Julie is 5'9" tall :)

My son Adam is THIRTEEN :)

Julie is 30-something! LOL! :)

Adam is NOW OFFICIALLY taller than his Mama at THIRTEEN years old... yep... at THIRTEEN he is about one inch taller than me... so that makes him 5' 10" tall.... *sigh* how did this happen??? :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


And since it is almost the end of the month (UGH...again... how did that happen???? Pretty soon we will all be wishing each other a Merry Christmas!! LOL!) :):):):):):):):):):):):) I did my monthly photo with my kids today also... for those of you new to my blog... almost 2 years ago (wow....I can not believe that next month it will be 2 years since she left this Earth....), my fellow Scrapping the Music DT member Aleida Franklin was tragically killed in a car accident... and every month she took photos with her kids... cuz no matter what my kids won't care if my hair is looking bad, or if I have a few pounds to lose...or if I have make up on or not...they will care someday that they have photos of me and them together! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And here is one of my 2 legged babies and my 4 legged one too! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


And before I head out... I wanted to share a lo I made using the EVER YUMMY August ScrapbookCircle.com kit celebrating my monthly photo tradition with my kids!! Had lots-O-fun with cutting the Jillibean paper on this one! :):):):):):):):):) And LOOK TONI...lol lol lol...I MISTED again! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)










Thanks for stopping by....I truly appreciate it! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  3. Hi Julie Sweetie...
    What a beautiful share this evening. I want to know just what have you been putting in Adam's wheaties each day? I want to try some in mine and see if I can reach 5 ft. 3. I have been 5 ft 2 most of my grown life, and seeing as how it is never to late to change, I want to give it a try. Come on, share the wealth, inquiring minds want to know.

    Brookie looks so fashionable as always. I just love to come and see what she is wearing each day. She is a cutie.

    Have a gorgeous day tomorrow sweet friend. Many hugs and so much love. Love ya girl, Sherry

  9. You all look so great together!
    I love this lo, and your post is really touching.

  10. I can totally relate Julie.....My soon to be 15 year old is 6'2. My 13 year old is a head taller than me (but I am short so we won't count that lol) and wears a size 12 mens shoe. I have NO clue where they get this from since I am 5'3 on a good hair day and thier father is just 5'9. Bob is 6'3...so Jacob is almost as tall as him and Jesse, the 6 year old is almost as tall as my 10 year old......but Bob is his dad so that makes sense that he would be tall too :)

    Ok now that I am done with my caffienated ramblings I LOVE the LO and that misting....you are rockin it!!!

  13. I can't believe how tall your son is. WOW!!!!! My kids have little hope to reach more then 5"2 (that's what I am) and their dad isn't all that much taller, maybe 4" or so.

  23. That's such a precious tradition Julie! And I LOVE to see your son outgrew you... mine did at about that age too (and now he's a HEAD taller! But he's 18 now...) Most fun it is when they start to pick you up and swirl around... I hope you will experience that too - it feels sooooo good when that happens!

    Your layout is beautiful, and you really get the hang of misting! You go girl!

    ReplyDelete

  32. Hi Julie...taller than you at 13??? Well, I'm 5'0...my husband is 6'5''......I wonder how long it'll be before Joseph (now 6) is taller than me?? Scary...thanks for making me go there (sarcasm intended!!)!! Love the layout, as always!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Love the LO. Kids grow much too fast these days (or is it just because they're our children?????) my oldest turned 12 today, it was a beautiful day, but a bit sad too, I have to let her go step by step and next week she's going to a new school by bus for the first time in her life alone.(she always could go by bicycle because we live nearby school).

    big hug
    Vicky

  40. Thanks for the reminder Julie - after reading this post I literally grabbed my camera and snapped a couple shots of my daughter and myself. I really need to do that more often and stop worrying so much about how terrible I think I look in photos.

    Oh, and great layout too!

  50. I've just noticed, you and Adam have the same cute cheeks : ) My baby is almost the same size as me now too and she's just turned 11. Saying that though, I am only 4ft 10 : )

    ReplyDelete
  51. wow he is tall, even taller than my DH.

    Thanks for telling me about the over night pull ups. I will have to look for those. B is a heavy heavy sleeper too so we may have accidents for while at night. I tried the regular pull ups and he still treated them as diapers. He actually called them his lightning mcqueen diapers.

  52. Love your tradition Julie and I love that photo! Your layout is gorgeous and I LOVE your misting..awesome!Beautiful design!
    And wow..Adam is really getting a little (tall) man ;)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Wow- you're 5'9 and Adam is 5'10...I'm 5'4, I'd KILL for a few extra inches...
    Julie, that's so great you're taking pictures and documenting your lives. I think that's part of the beauty of scrapbooking, we take pictures and turn them into even more.
    I'm SO sorry to hear about your friend, that breaks my heart.
