Kiss Me

This first picture totally reminds me of the song Kiss Me by Sixpence None the Richer, I guess because it was taken of this cute couple out in nature at sunset. Or maybe it's just because I love that song.

Anyway, for fun, here are the lyrics:

Kiss me out of the bearded barley
Nightly, beside the green, green grass
Swing, swing, swing the spinning step
You wear those shoes and I will wear that dress.

Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
Silver moon's sparkling
So kiss me

Kiss me down by the broken tree house
Swing me upon its hanging tire
Bring, bring, bring your flowered hat
We'll take the trail marked on your father's map

Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
Silver moon's sparkling
So kiss me

I had high hopes of getting more than just two pictures edited from this photoshoot tonight, seeing as I took these pictures nearly two weeks ago! But as the clock approaches midnight and as I glance at what I still need to do before tomorrow, I'm going to have to settle with just getting a few pictures up for now. For those of you who know Randi, this is her beautiful baby sister. She's getting married in August!


In other news, I realize my blog has been favoring photography lately, and that I haven't posted much about us, but I hope to soon!

Until then, here's us in quick review:
Maggie cut her bangs to the root, right in the middle of her forehead today. I discovered this while in line to pay at the grocery store. Recognizing that I had an audience of strangers to witness my reaction, I started giggling and then laughing out of shock and nervousness. I pray Maggie doesn't really think I found her snippity artwork at all amusing.

And remember how Magson used to laugh when I'd get upset with him for biting me while nursing? Well, he hasn't bit me in a long time, until tonight, when he chomped on me his hardest yet. This time, however, my painful and loud reaction actually made him cry as though I had somehow hurt him! I felt bad that my reaction scared him, but also kind of victorious. Hopefully that problem is cured for good.

Last night Magnet was telling me all about a book he is reading. It's about how to get the world out of poverty in twenty years. He's really passionate about developing third world countries. It was one of those conversations that only required an "uh huh" here and a "hmmm" there from me. Before long I decided to roll over and drifted off to sleep while he kept chatting away. That is, until I made an appearance from my dreams to say, "I didn't know computers could do that." There was a big pause as he realized I'd been sleeping and as I realized that what I said was way off topic. Oops!

Finally, for family home evening tonight we finished up our garden. We had so much help from our neighbor with this--seriously. We built our garden box out of his left over wood with his tools. He had his cousin deliver dirt to our door. We finally got some seeds planted this evening. It felt good and awkward. I'm quite an illiterate gardener and it was particularly apparent tonight as I dug holes with an old spoon and watered with a plastic pitcher. I'll let you know if anything decides to sprout out there. I sure hope so!

Oh, and one more "finally." Preschool is at my house tomorrow. I'm planning on baking cookies with eight kids. While working on this post, I've been baking cookies in advance for their snack tomorrow. Yeah, I just went to take the second batch out of the oven and they're black as coal. The first batch was ugly enough seeing how I put the ingredients together in the wrong order. Why did I choose a baking theme???

It may not sound like it from all my little stories, but life really is good. It's really busy and exhausting and full, but for wonderful reasons.

  1. I love those pictures.

    I guess that means you can totally expect Ty to raid your cookie hiding spot when he gets there!

  2. Oh...and little girls cutting their bangs is like a right (rite?) of passage or something!

  3. Wow. All your stories reminded me of similar stories i could tell of my life in the last few years! Kids cutting hair...gardening discovering...baking disasters...BUT, I love your last sentence-that life is full for wonderful reasons...so, so true. ;)
    Good luck with it all, Marie.

  10. your post made me laugh. I think you need to put a picture on of Maggie's bangs. I'm sure you can make it look cute, between your photography skills and dressing her cute, etc. :) And that's funny you talked in your sleep to Will, what did he say? Did he laugh? Or was he annoyed his story put you to sleep? That made me laugh! And that makes me hurt to hear how Magson chomped you. Ouch!! I'm almost done wheaning Carter, and he hasn't done that in a while, and yes, I have made him cry too for the very same reason.
    Oh, and good luck with your preschool tomorrow! I'm sure it will go well. Isn't it helpful to know that a stick of margerine or butter equals 1/2 c. :) LOVE YOU!
