Daddy took the kids to the Minot State University Homecoming Parade. Here are his pictures from his phone and his take on the outing....
We went to the MSU parade.
The whole gang was excited beforehand!!
Grace was proud of her Jim Hill band!
Bella grabbed a lot of candy and attention with her cheerleader outfit!
But Nole' only liked the quiet things which meant he was tucked away in the safety of his big brother much of the time!
We had fun! Love, Daddy-O
And, on another Homecoming report, Sister came home from college last night. Oh, did we have a joyous reunion. After all of the hullaballoo, the three littles settled in with Sissy to watch a Little Bear episode. And, for this Mother Bear, all was right in the world....
Hi Friends! Where, oh where, did our summer go? I am not going to make a list of excuses as to why I did not blog all summer, but let's just say time got away from me!
Earlier this summer, a friend Mandi Carroll asked if she could take some pictures of Nole' for her new photography studio. She really wanted to be sure to include some diversity in her photos displayed there....I was so happy to hear that she wanted to do this, so I said, "Of course!"
I have the hardest time getting a cute shot of Nole' as he usually just looks at me with a blank stare when I take a picture. However, Mandi, with her mad skills, was able to get Nole' dancing, posing, and laughing. Don't they say the proof is in the pudding..... So here are some shots she captured during his foray into the modeling world......
Yes, she is a true professional! Take a peek at her site to see more.... www.mandicarroll.com
I think he is ready to be a model! Anyone know of a good agent? :)
