the rest of our family pictures.

i have been meaning to get these up. my sister maddie did such a great job. there are a ton of them.. so just a warning now! this isn't even all of them! i know they might get redundant and lots of them look the same but it was hard not to post most of them. and lots of them are kissy pictures. if you were my nephew kaden you would problem go "ewww! " and run away screaming. but that's okay with me. you don't have to look at them if you don't want to! i love these so much. moses wouldn't sit still for anything.. but if you look hard you can see little snippets of him in some of the pictures. it's like where's waldo but instead where's moe? i like it that way though. because he is insane. and it would only be fitting that he be running all over the place picking up huge branches in his mouth. thanks again maddie, and no worries.. i love even the blurry pictures of moses! :) also, this whole shoot was really only about 15 minutes of shooting because sean's allergies were terrible and moses was being crazier than normal. i think she got some great shots, regardless of the circumstances! i love them maddie!

i should be napping right now. luckily i already had these pictures uploaded and ready to go. i am incredibly sick. i have come down with a stupid cold and i feel terrible. i came home from work early and fell asleep for about an hour and then the three dogs decided they would not stop barking. our neighbor has a black cat and they can see it from the window. when i took them out to go to the bathroom they all booked it. they chased after that cat as fast as they could. i watched riley poop under someones trampoline. and me being the great citizen that i am (not) pretended like i didn't notice and finally got them to come inside. i'm not feeling well enough to go walk all the way over there and pick up the poop. also, he hasn't pooped in a while so i am just glad that he did. which is funny to say since he is the one that wouldn't stop pooping in the garage and pooped in my bathroom. guess i can never be pleased. haha.

sigh. it's a bad week to be sick. work is going to be so busy, but luckily we slowed down enough this afternoon that my co-workers let me go. they are the best. i have been feeling kinda sick all weekend but it hit me really hard today while at work. i hate that it comes on so suddenly like that. i'm just trying to take it easy but can't seem to get comfortable so i thought i'd hop on here for a bit. i haven't been reading blogs for about a week and a half now. or been on facebook. i also deleted my pinterest. sigh. i am regretting that one a little. but i feel like it was turning into a negative thing for me. which i hate saying because i LOVED it so much. i felt like it was such a positive place but then i get comments from strangers or see people commenting on randoms strangers stuff, questioning my likes or their likes.. and it makes me sad! pinterest is a personal place and i just feel like we should respect other peoples likes and interests. why do we have to question what colors they think are cool or what fashions they like? it's okay to have an opinion but sometimes it's even more okay to just keep it to ourselves. i guess i am just too sensitive about stuff like that. it was starting to depress me though. oh well. i am trying to take a break from social media. mostly facebook though. i am not going back on until at least october 31st. that's my goal. so far it has been really nice. i don't know why but facebook can get frustrating sometimes. it's definitely a love/hate thing for me. i have found other things to do though with my time so it's been nice. i don't think i've read blogs either for a week and half. except for today. so sorry i have been MIA! things are just crazy with these three dogs. oh and we got the cement poured for our patio! it looks great and our yard finally looks finished. except for the fact that we don't have a fence. but who needs a fence eh? we have one side fenced (neighbors got one) haha. so that's enough for me. someday though.. i'm not getting one until i can pay cash for it. so it could be a while. but i am saving up for it.

also.. sean got a new job. as most of you know we knew each other in high school but starting dating several years later when i got a job at my work. he had already been working there for about a year. it's been such a blessing for both of us working there. they are such a great company and had it not been for that job we probably would not be where we are now. i would like to think that we would have still ended up together, but i have no doubt i got a job there to bring me to sean. it's bittersweet that he is leaving. it's been awesome being able to carpool together and go to lunch together and see each other often. it has been all we have known throughout our marriage. so this will definitely be a change. sean loves working for his boss troy. we both love troy and his family so much. it is really going to be hard for sean to leave that. he has learned so much from troy and this company. they have been so great to us. it's hard. because he is leaving a great job. for another great job. it might not make sense to most people. but we have prayed a lot about this decision and just feel that it is the best direction for our family and our future. i won't get into too much detail on that. but we are excited for the new adventure that awaits us. sean starts his new job on halloween! he will still be working in finance which he is incredibly happy about. he is also really good at it, but he won't tell you that ;) anyway. that is about all that is going on.. i'm off to take some more cold medicine and try to keep these hot flashes i am having at bay...

The pictures are incredible, they're so warm and sunny, and you and Sean are a gorgeous couple.
And Moses, goodness, I am not a fan of dogs, but I a fan of Moses. You have the most adorable dog. (And when I show pictures of him to Z, he gets super excited because doggies are his favorite.)

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one fed up with social media. I'm on a trial separation from Facebook and it had been glorious. ;)

I'm sorry you're sick, I hope you get feeling better soon.

Maddie said...

I love you Chlo! Glad you like the pics :). It's hard to escape negative/rude people in this world, but thank goodness you're not one of them. You are always sweet and kind to others, and keep things light, upbeat, and humorous while still being true to yourself. You never mock people for their interests and beliefs, and that's one of the amazing things about you. Glad your back to blogging :) love ya sis!

chloe. holy crap. these are freaking amazing. you and sean are a ridiculously gorgeous couple! k. i was mentally making a list of my favorites, but i lost track after about teh fifth one. my very very favorite is the one where you're holding his shirt and kissing kind of hard. ha. does that sound so creepy that i love that one? i just do. ic an't help it. i've always loved kissing pictures. i also love the one where he is kissing you on the forehead. and i love this one..i can't remember what you guys are doing. kissing probably. but hte lighting is so great. it's about 2/3 the way down the post. anyway. i want to say somethign about all the ones i love, but i can't remember them all! annoying! anyway. these are amazing. maddie is so awesome. and you and sean are the cutest!

sorry you are sick. bummer :( i hope you get feeling better!
