Webkinz Summer

Summer is coming to an went way too fast at this house. The kids were busy with lots of things this summer, but the thing that kept them the busiest were their Webkinz. If you have a child anywhere from preschool through middle school, you most likely know what they are. But for those of you who don't, they are little stuffed animals with a special code that you enter on the Webkinz site. Then you can name your Webkin, buy and decorate rooms for them, play games to earn points (which means you can buy more stuff) and connect with other kids online who have Webkinz and send them notes and gifts and "play" with them. It actually is a pretty cool site with lots of ways for the kids to be creative, but it has become a mild obsession with our kids so we've had to set some limits as to the amount of time they can use the computer. We have several different species of Webkin dogs, a hippo, a bear, a pig and a platypus.

This little white shack that I used quite a few times this summer for photo shoots was torn down yesterday. It was the perfect spot with cool doorways and windows and interesting textures for backgrounds. I think they should have asked my permission before they destroyed my "studio."

The Sweetest Boy

The kids were laying in bed with me this morning and we were talking about the dreams we had the night before. When I asked Cooper if he had any dreams last night he said, "No, cause I prayed for black last night."

It doesn't get any better than this...

...the girls had a blast at the party last night. There were lots of giggles and squeals; I even had to wipe the kiss marks off the tv this morning. Troy Bolton is SOOOO cute!

Look who we hung out with this weekend...

Well...not really...but my mom did stand five feet from Angelina and Maddox when they were in Border's downtown Chicago on Sunday. While she was hanging out with the Jolie-Pitt's I was attending a workshop with the famous Chicago photographer Audrey Woulard. Business is going well; I am currently working non-stop trying to get my website designed and online.

Must be rough...

... to crawl out of your bed and head straight over to the "game zone" for a little PS2. That early morning school bus is going to be quite an adjustment come September.
