hooptie and ww

a successful ride in the hooptie is made up of..well, let's look at a diagram:


4 sweet girlie pies and a fun cousin too!
videos
milk
fav blankie
ipod touch
cell for texting

and then, when the teens are happy...you can get shots of their faces...aha!!!

and before you know it, they are distracted with fun and viola! uber fun!

you know, our fam is a little crazy, i'm not gonna lie. we have to make things fun...and embarrass our kids...and just be us. there's not enough time to be anything but us. i say to my girlies all the time, "you are the perfect you. when you try to be someone else, i miss out on the YOU that god created."

"there will be only one of you for all time.
fearlessly be yourself"

anonymous

so go and live like you...and be yourself.
and go see angie for more ww!!
