"Mommy and Me Monday"

I can't even begin to count all of the great new ideas I've learned and all the new friends I've met in the last few days! People out there are doing all sorts of fun things on their blogs that I never would have thought of on my own. I was reading through some new blogs I found through the

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

and came across this idea of "Mommy and Me Monday". You can find out more about that here:

Mommy and Me Monday at Really, Are You Serious?
Hosted by Krystyn

I wasn't necessarily planning on doing it. I just happened to be reading about it out loud and my one and only son thought it would be a great idea! In case you didn't click the link above (shame on you!), the idea is to get mothers in more of their pictures. So, here is my first Mommy and Me Monday picture-it's me (of course!) with Kaleb (age 8) and Olivia (age 4).

Too many times I know that I also find myself behind the camera, taking the pictures. What a great way to ensure that as my children grow, they will have pictures with Mommy! Please forgive the quality of this picture. We just took a quick picture and it is a little blurry. I tried retaking the picture, and then I tried having Katherine take one but none of them looked better than this one. Maybe next week I should have Kris take the picture. Katherine has already begged to be in the picture with me next week so I know they are excited about this too! I think this will be a great memory for the kids and for me as well. I'm so excited to have come across this!
