photo shoot

Labor day after the party we squeeze in a really quick photo shoot. We had to hurry because we were losing light so I didn't have time to really play, but got some cute shots anyways. These are of my sister Coleen and her husband Eric's family, My sister Julie, her son Kayce, my nephews Josh and Jeremy and Josh's girlfriend Stephanie. Took pictures of Eric's whole big family last week. They were all terrible...seriously!
Today has been a long long day of errands. Here's a run down...
  • read email while eating breakfast...if you want to call cookies breakfast
  • shower, hair & make up...girly stuff
  • get gas because I'm on empty
  • drive to town
  • meet Mark for lunch
  • go to post office
  • meet Mark at gas station because he needed to use my bank card to get gas because something was wrong with his. Called the bank, they are sending him a new card.
  • drop a check off to a sub contractor
  • pick up money from someone that I'm catering a luncheon for this weekend
  • scrapbook store to pick out cute pattern paper for this years Christmas cards. It was a zoo since creative escape is going on and they had a bus tour at the store at that time. Ran into my cute funny friend, Margie Romney-Aslett who's in town.
  • drive out to 10 buck 2 to go to the chiropractor. She said I was a mess...and she'd be right.
  • go to Coleen's house to drop off photo CD and kids shoes that were left at my house.
  • picked up a rubber duck from Julie to send to Chad
  • went to the grocery store for Coleen because apparently it's not so easy to take 4 small kids to the store just to get rolls.
  • Head back to Maricopa during rush hour
  • get home...pick up Cody and chocolate quest an address to take him to an activity where they are baking cookies
  • drive him there...come home...Mark's not home yet.

Coleen said...

I thank you much for the rolls. If you would have stayed I would have given you some french dip sandwiches for the road. The kids are finally asleep and my body aches. I still have a few things to do before I go to bed to start over tomorrow. Love ya! Oh yea, I went to look at the pic's and Julie took the CD home, the little fart.

Don't you wonder what it would be like to live the life of leisure?

Jeanette said...

Hi, Jolene! I am thoroughly enjoying your neck of the woods although I wish it were a bit cooler.

I'm also enjoying all the great places to shop. I just don't know how I am going to get it all back home!
