Day 31: Children

I figured since the only children I have posted for this weeks theme where my own, I need to at least have one day where I post a different one. This beautiful little angel is one of my best friends little girl. My 2 have adopted her as their little sister. I love watching them interact with each other!

Day 18: Guilty Pleasures

If you'd ask me which toy is the best toy ever made, I would say LEGO's! As a child and even now as an adult I love them and still enjoy building with them with my kids! At night when the kids are asleep you might even catch me put some of these together.



Day 17: Guilty Pleasures

Took this one of one of my obvious guilty pleasures with my XTi, which was weird, because I have not used that camera in probably 2 years! It is so much smaller than my 30D and I can tell a huge diffence in quality!

Day 16: Guilty Pleasures

I love doing home improvement! If I only had the money, I would redo everything in my house! One of my favorites though which will do such a big difference and is relatively cheap is painting. I love how a bucket of paint can make the yuckiest looking walls look new again! Right now I am painting my sons room, it looked horrible before! I just painted it 3 years ago, but he was not very kind to the walls!

Day 15: Guilty Pleasures

A few guilty pleasures all in one....my computer, Photoshop CS3, Itunes and therefore also my IPod, Facebook, my blog and watching movies on my computer while I use all these!


Day 14: Guilty Pleasures

No need for words here I think...well maybe that whats in her cup is not exactly my guilty pleasure (hot chocolate) but mine, which was a cafe mocha with hazelnut.

Day 11: Personal Treasures

I played baseball in Germany for several years. We were the "Berlin Devils" and at the time we were the only girls baseball team playing against all boys teams. What a blast! Some of my favorite time, growing up! This is the jersey I wore, it has my (then) last name on it "Jaeger" and the number 77. The baseball cap used to be a dark blue, but the sun and the red clay has done major damage! The baseball is one we used in one of the last games I ever played with the Berlin Devils right before I moved to the USA, all my team members signed it for me.

Day 10: Personal Treasures

Growing up and going to school in germany, kids would buy "Poesie Albums", where classmates would write in poems and personal messages. I still have 3 of them (1st grade, 3rd grade, and 5th grade) and it is really neat going through them every now and them. By the way, my grandmother is the one who painted the bouquet of flowers and wrote the script (my grandfather signed it though ha!), so pretty!

Day 8: Personal Treasures

This is is several little treasures in one. The necklace my sister Viveka gave me when I was 16, the wedding band is the one my daddy gave to my mother in 1976 (You can see my daddies name "Jörg" ingraved on the inside), then there is the engagement ring my husband gave me, my very first earing and last but not least is the heart my daddy gave me when I left Germany to live in the US.

Day 7: Personal Treasures

Hidden away in my closet is the belly cast me and my Friend Christy made of my humongous belly when I was 38 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child. I really loved being pregnant with both my kids so I am very glad that we decided to do this.

Day 6: Personal Treasures

My childhood hero, Pumuckl! My mother made this doll named Pumuckl (from a then popular German kids TV show) for me when I was 2 for Christmas. I do actually remember reveiving it. Along with the doll I also got the matching bedding, which is pictured also. I slept with that comforter until I was about 16, then when my son was born he slept with it for 3 years and then when my daughter was born, she had it for 2 years! Needless to say, I am very attached to it ;)

Day 5: Personal Treasures

This should be an easy one for me, since I have many personal treasures! This is a cross stich announcement I made while I was pregnant with my son and finished it with the stats shortly after he was born. The blanket a started when I first got pregnant with him and because I did not know if he was a boy or girl until my 20 week ultrasound I used the colors yellow, blue, pink, green and peach.
