A snow storm!

I went to Wynne today and it started snowing I called Jon and he said it wasnt doing anything in Memphis. So since it was doing a good ground cover in wynne I decided to head home. I got to the bridge and WOW I got scared! Traffic was stopped b/c of a wreck on the bridge and it was slick! My tires started spinning and I did a few slides! I was like oh first off Jon lied to me!! Turns out it just came down that fast! It is way worse over here in Memphis than in Wynne. We have at least 4" of snow right and it is still coming down! I dont think I have ever seen this much snow!! I took Lauren out to play for a bit earlier but we will go out again tomorrow for sure. Maybe Jon will feel like joining us tomorrow. He is sick right now. I am just so glad we made home safe!!! I took a few pics earlier I will post them tomorrow.

We checked out a preschool!

I can't believe I almost forgot to post this! The three of us went earlier this week to check out the one I have heard some great things about. Lauren just loved it! She went in there and started playing like she had been there before! All the teachers were really nice! Of course it would be my child when the director asks about if Lauren is potty trained and I said yes except for pooping that we were still working on that. Not two minutes later Lauren was having a snack and was sitting in those cute little chairs and she gets up and says uh Mommy I pee peed! OMG I looked at Jon and we just wanted to hide!!! lol! I apoligized but of course that wasnt the first time it happened but still! I think Lauren will really enjoy it! I will be the one that has a hard time letting her go!!! I am sure we will all adjust just fine.

She knows what she likes!

I went to Walmart without Lauren today and got a few cute little dresses for this summer for her. I pulled every single one out and she said she didnt like any of them! I am going to try again tomorrow! My Mom has been telling me that I started at 2 picking out my clothes I guess my day with her has come!!! lol! She picked a shirt out at Gymboree earlier this week and I got another one I liked but she didnt. I should have listened to her b/c the shirt I liked didnt fit or her look good on her!!

Dumbo is the movie of the week! She has watched it every day so far! Twice on Monday! On the sad part where the take Mrs. Jumbo away she had tears in her eyes and looked at me and said Mommy I am so sad! I think that is amazing that she puts two and two together already to feel that way.

This morning she woke up and said she wanted to go on a picnic in the park. So we got ready and I packed a lunch and we did just that! She always eats really well when we do that. It was just so windy and chilly we had to leave before either of us really wanted to.

Kelly Ketchum Photography NEW pricing!

Check out my new prices!

After last weeks experience with getting Lauren's picture done somewhere I realized I had to lower my prices. I want you to have GREAT photos to treasure forever! I just hate to think of someone not having a portrait they love that they just can't afford. In this economy right now I thought it was a time for a change. Kids change so fast and you want their portrait made often so maybe my new pricing change will help you do just that!!

I will begin to book outdoor sessions as soon as the weather warms up! I am working on a Easter prop idea that could be done inside or out!

My necklace came in!

It came in today! I knew I would love it when I opened the package to see this cute little ladybug tin!!! Then the necklace is just adorable!!! Thanks so much ladies!! Go check out Lauren Nicole here!

Lauren got to play with some ducks!! and the password is 14646

I took Lauren to get her picture made at a place in the mall. I know I know you saying why on earth would you do that!! lol! Well they had it set up so nice and with live baby ducks!! Something I could never afford to do...for now anyway. Maybe one day I will be able to do something like this. It turned out well. Some super cute ones! It was just so much fun to watch her play with the ducks! I think there prices stink! So due to that I am going to be doing some changes with my own photography biz! I wanted each and ever photo they took today but there was no way I was going to pay 300.00 or more for them! I know how much they are to print!!! So be on the look out for new prices and things coming from me! Anyway I am glad I took Lauren up there to do this.

Such pretty day

We had nice weather today so I took Lauren to park after lunch. There was another little girl there and after they talked for a few minutes Lauren turned to me and said Mommy this is my best friend! It was so sweet! At one point the little girl coughed and Lauren looked at me and said Mommy my friend needs some medicine!!!

Lauren decided she does love the tire swing!

She was throwing grass into the water. Next time I will remember to bring some bread! All the ducks thought she had food too!!

She is saying Hey ducks hey ducks! Then I told her it was a goose so then it was hey goose hey goose!! lol!

She is holding a little bitty camera it doesnt work but she doesnt mind. She said Mommy I need to take pictures of the ducks too!!

Taking more pics of the ducks!

What Lauren decided for Jon for V-day

We went out today to find something for Jon. I asked Lauren should we get chocolate or a cookie. You know the cookie company in the mall. So she think, think, think--ed about it!! And called Jon and he said cookie. We went and she picked out which one she wanted to have made. I didnt explain to her we wouldnt give it to him tonight. When Jon sat down tonight she said "Daddy I got you a cake!"!! lol! I was like uh well but Jon couldnt figure out what she said. So maybe he will be a little surprised by it! I will have to get a pic of it also! I am going to try to not give it to him till Saturday...just depends on how bad Lauren wants some of it!!

Let me tell you about Scentsy!!!

Here is the site you need to check out!

I just got my order in today and of course right away I had to get it out and get it going! Lauren and I went to the park and when we got back the house was smelling so good!!! I had one large burner going in the living room and a plug in on in the bathroom. I am not so sure about the plug ins just yet. It may be b/c there just isnt too much air flow back there. I will have to play with it and see. I also have another plug in I have to figure out where I want to put it. It won't fit in my other bathroom. I just love this stuff! It is so nice to know that I can leave this going all day and leave and not worry about burning my house down!! It is just a little 25 watt bulb that heats the bricks up. I will take some pics of it tomorrow b/c the warmers are so pretty!! Here are the scents that I got! Mysterious, Cucumber Lime, Flirtatious, Grapefruit Pomergerante, Enchanted Mist, and Luxe Vanilla. I will let you know my fav after I have tried them all!

For the month of Feburary all items are 10% off! So check out Terri's site and place an order!!

If anyone wants to come visit and look at these and smell them just call me!!!

New stroller!

I picked up a new stroller Friday for Lauren. The old one we had was so short and her feet would drag and just way to low to the ground. So we went to Babies R us and played with a few and picked one we both liked. I got it on sale and I had a coupon! We tried it out Monday for a walk around the park. We both really like it! Here is a link to it.

Peter pan

Lauren watched Peter Pan for the first time today. You know the orginal one! She LOVED it! She loved seeing Tinkerbell in it! She said Tink was little bitty in this movie!! lol!

Little miss Sassy!

I tell you Lauren has just been something else lately! She did something today and I got onto her and she then put her hands on her hips and then wiped off where I spanked her and I asked her what she just did and she grinned and said Just Kidding!

Jon witnessed it first hand tonight while we were eating dinner and trying to get her to eat! I forget what exactly was said she said something like I dont want that either. It was a sassy remark how she said it. Jon's eyes got big and he looked me like did she just say that!! I dont know what we are going to do with her!!!

Just saw another cute commerical!


Sick baby

Lauren started sounding a little stopped up yesterday and she took a long nap so I knew she was getting sick. I think it is just a cold but you know how bad they can be sometimes! She woke up last night and told me her throat hurt and needed medicine. She sounds HORRIBLE today! So stopped up and running nose. My poor baby!

I dont know how to make it show up on here so I had to link to it. Someone want to fill me in on how to put it on here???

Superbowl party

We went to one of Jon's buddies friends house last night for a superbowl party. Everyone had a great time and great food! Lauren had so much fun with the other kids. They were all older and the two little girls had a blast dressing up Lauren! She was so cute! Too bad I didnt have my camera with me! She of course didnt want to come home but it was late! And I have no idea who won the game!! lol! We didnt go for that just to hang out with everyone!
