Mommy & Me Monday

A few weeks ago I stumbled upon Serious Krystyn at Really, Are You Serious? and it was blog love at first sight. Call me old fashioned but I love a good ole Mommy Blog. One of my favorite things about Krystyn's blog is Mommy & Me Monday. Haven't we all had a nagging feeling of invisible-ness when we're looking back at photos of our children and we realize we're in NONE of them?! Haven't we all begged someone to take our picture with our kids just to prove that Mommy was there? Well, Krystyn and I have that in common. "Too often, we are the ones behind the camera instead of in the pictures. We capture all of the moments with our kiddos, but almost none with us," she says. Amen, sister! Krystyn's challenge? Take at least one picture of yourself with your children and post it on Mondays, dedicated as Mommy and Me Monday. I'm up for the challenge! Because I am here, enjoying these precious moments with my children, and not just from behind the camera.

Do you want to exist in the scrapbooks and photo albums? Yeah! Join Serious Krystyn (and me) for Mommy & Me Monday.

For my 1st Mommy & Me Monday I have pictures from this weekend. We went to Oklahoma City to visit with Grandpa Hall, and celebrate his 90th birthday. It rained the entire time we were there. The kids and I waited in the hotel room, supposed to be napping, before Grandpa's birthday party. It was too exciting to nap. We (I) started going stir-crazy and had to get out of the hotel room before we clawed the walls. Thank God for the bookstore across the street! The kids and I walked there, in the rain, and spent an hour reading and playing in the bookstore. My kids love reading, and playing with the trinkets and toys at the bookstore. We had a great time. And SEE? I was there!

Thanks again to Krystyn for hosting Mommy & Me Monday!
