she's two and a half and very much an active, rambunctious, loving toddler! No new artwork. But she can draw faces and some letters and she's just the sweetest smartest little thing ❤️

I am a cashier, and I am lucky that my managers know I prefer to be on the floor bc they use me as a stocker almost every day so no Alli stuck on register all day long!!

we didn't do anything for Easter. I worked shrugs and we couldn't go to my mom's anyway bc they replaced her roof this week. We don't really have Easter traditions anymore... my grandmother died last August, and holiday dinners were always at her house. 😕

Topazia... wow, has time flown by that fast?  MacKenzie is two and one half???  I can not believe that so much time has passed.  I am so happy that she is active, rambunctious and loving.  This has everything to do with you.  I am certain that you have given one hundred hours per day to help her develop into the little person she is.

Your manager must know that they will get the most out of you when you are doing more than just be stuck at the register.  Great!  

As for Easter, I am sorry you had to work.  Hopefully, the roof is complete on your parent's home.  I love holiday traditions.  But, due to my career, we never had the tradition on a set day.  Usually, that was because we were always working and not even in the same state or country.  Perhaps you can pick up the tradition and carry it forward.

We have a new member, Scarlett.  She appeared once and I am trying to get the boards to have her posts appear immediately.  

 have attached our Easter egg photograph.

HAPPY MAY DAY!!! 

This morning, we awoke to snow.  Not much, but it was so cold outside.  BRRRRRR!  I am waiting for the sun to come out and melt the layer of snow.  What a way to start the month of May.

Easter was quiet over here. We had a little family dinner at home, it was very good!

I have the rest of this week off, and this weekend it's Godzilla film festival time! Gonna watch some giant monsters fight each other for a couple days.

LOL!!!  Oh my goodness!  Your "little monster"???  I love the image.  You could have at least given her a few other colours to play with.  

I just love the artwork created by young children.  The artwork is so much fun.

Lol her nickname on twitch and other sites is smallmonster. The endearing kind, like Elmo and Grover are monsters on sesame street. She chose the green!

I just love your little girl.  A term of endearment.  MacKenzie seems to have her own mind and this is wonderful.  It will be terrific to have more artwork by our favourite artist.

How is your job?  Are you getting away from the cash register enough for you?  I hope so.

She is absolutely a joy. I do get frustrated when she's misbehaving but she's just learning and trying to play so I try to guide her away instead of getting mad... it's hard sometimes but I'm getting better at it. She definitely has her own mind about a ton of stuff lol! 

Work is good, I have been off register more often than not which is best for me haha I worked enough full time weeks in a row that I'm really full time now, which means I get better insurance options and bigger bonuses every quarter!

Topazia... wonderful work news.  Better insurance options and bigger bonuses are a definite plus.  I hope that you are taking something out of your already small paycheck, and putting it towards retirement.  In the end, you will pay a little bit less in taxes.  

I have been looking for a one thousand colour crayon box.  So far, I have not found one, but when I do, I am sending them to MacKenzie, along with a whole lot of drawing paper.  LOL!!!  Perhaps I should find a set of drums for her.  LOL!!!

Yes, growing, exploring and learning young people, can try the patience of their parents.  You sound like you have an immense amount of patience.  I applaud you for the great job you are doing as a mother.  All of your hard work and patience will definitely pay off when she gets older.  It comes when other parents tell you how wonderful your daughter is.  Then you know what a fantastic job you did raising her.

no I'm not putting money aside. I should, I know. we will be soon.

omg MacKenzie would adore that (and so would I, to be honest, love me some crayons) haha please no drums. she has one. she likes it. it makes an excellent stairs. xylo and other instruments, I can't wait to give her music, I'm looking at where to find kid-level instruments since walmart doesn't really have them anymore. she already likes to sing, after all.

I think I'm doing a good job. I'm trying. I think Sean is doing a better job. He's home with her, he does everything. She loves him to death. She's so good. I hope he realizes just how amazing a dad he is.

You are so right.  It is most definitely a yawn.  The fox was pretty far away and I was using a long telephoto lens.  Even though he was far away, he was still discreetly watching me.  See the following image.  You have to look closely to see his eyes.

I know that it is tough, as money is tight, but you really need to have a little bit taken out of your paycheck towards your retirement.  This is so very important.  You will learn to live with a little bit less, but in the long run, you will have a very wonderful nest egg for your retirement years.  Please promise me that you will sign up and take out something towards your future.  Also, please promise me that you will never, ever touch it.  

As for other news, perhaps we should send you a five thousand piece Lego set for MacKenzie.  LOL!!!  Of course, we will need to send you a toy box for all those Lego pieces.  

I am so happy that you and Sean are having fun with MacKenzie.  She seems to be such a happy and wonderful child.  This is because of the terrific job you both as doing as parents.  Music is something that you take with you for life.  Once you have an appreciation for music, it never goes away.  I could never live without music.

Would you please keep us posted on our favourite little girl???

Not a whole lot new has happened in the last couple weeks, with her. She's still happy and healthy. I'm still tired everyday bc that child wakes up at 7 every. Single. Day. *cries* Sean is losing weight and working on getting back into shape. I'm super proud of him, he's lost almost 15 pounds in like three weeks.

Congratulations to Sean.  Losing weight is so very difficult.  Getting in shape is a perfect way to prolong your life.  Try to avoid running and swim or bicycle instead.  You only have so much cartilage in your knees and hips.  Swimming and bicycling have so much less of an impact on those two joints.  

Children can wear you out.  They have endless energy and seem to have batteries installed.  I love it that she is up early every single morning.  LOL!!!  That is my kind of girl.  I am up by 04H00 every single morning.  If I was to wake up after that, I would feel like I missed half of the day.  I have no idea what it is like to sleep in.  LOL!!!  If you lived close, I would be your morning baby sitter so you could sleep.

Not much is happening with me, I am busy taking courses.  These are just for fun.  I enjoy learning new things. When I am not studying, I am out taking photographs and attempting to learn how to take these images better.

I love the gorgeous photos! I'm finding that flowers and nature are my favorite things to photograph so far.

Work is in a rough patch, we're very short-handed and people are off on vacation every week, but we'll hopefully get more hires soon! Until then, we're scraping by x.x I hope everyone is doing well!

Welcome back!  I am so sorry to hear that work is extremely tough.  With people taking off for a week, it makes things so difficult.  I hope that you get some new hires or the return of some people soon.  

Yes, flowers are wonderful subjects.  I am attempting to try and photograph flowers in a different view, or with different lighting, just to make people wonder, what is that.  These flowers were really attracting my attention and I just had to try and take their pictures.  Today I am heading out to photograph some cactus.  There is this one cactus with an enormous amount of blooms.  I am hoping that I can capture a good photograph of them.

What else is happening with you?  Are you getting ready for the Fourth of July pyrotechnics celebration?

We are! The demo show at the place we get our stash is next weekend, so we'll be stocking up then.

The game I've been waiting for comes out the weekend after that, so I'm excited for that! Otherwise, things are all quiet over here 😆

This year, you need to bring your tripod and take fireworks photographs.  We will be waiting!  I am not a pyrotechnics person.  So, you will have so many, many more fireworks to play with.

Quiet is good.  Would you please let us know how the game goes?  

Not much is happening here.  Life is very calm and I am happy that there is no drama.

We just had a thunderstorm at sunset.  The rainbow was gorgeous, then the sky went dramatic orange.
