My other birthday present

I've been wanting a new digital camera for a long time and Bobby surprised me with one on my birthday! Our old camera had a delay that lasted about 5 minutes so we ended up with a lot of shots of Franny with her eyes closed and her mouth open. It was just a bad situation and I'm glad that the bad camera chapter of my life is closed. I also wanted a better camera for the purposes of this blog. I couldn't get a decent picture of my food. Those days are over! You're the best, Bobby!

Here's some pictures I've been taking with my camera:

I really lucked out with Bobby. His first rotation for medical school is the surgery rotation. During the week, if Bobby is lucky he gets to spend about 15 minutes with his girls before they have to go to bed. Some nights he doesn't see them at all! Sometimes they (surgeon, residents, and students) don't even stop to eat anything for lunch OR dinner. Even though Bobby is exhausted from working 14, 15, and 16 hour days with little or no nourishment through the day, he always comes home happy to see us and in a good mood. And on my birthday, he came home with flowers, stuff for rootbeer floats, and my birthday present. I love you Bobby, and I am so excited for the surgery rotation to be over so we can have you back again! Oh yeah, and thanks for not wanting to be a surgeon when you grow up.




This video cracks me up. I thought I was taking a picture of myself! I'm such a dork.

"Here comes the invalid." (Jessica, Julia and Chrissy: that's a quote for you three.) Poor Franny got sick over the weekend, so she's been taking it easy. I love this picture of her. Her eyelashes are so gorgeous. This morning she came in and said, "Good morning, Mommy." It was very sweet. I've really enjoyed having her home for a few days- she's been extra sweet and fun, even though she's not feeling great. Sophie seems to be much more entertained with her big sister around. There was a chocolate stain on the blanket and I used the healing tool in photoshop to erase it. You can't even tell! I love photoshop.







And Ashley and Abbey made the trip out to visit and it was so good to have them here!! We love you guys and miss having you close.

That is a great picture of Franny! Good job. Yay for Bobby for getting a new camera. Yay for not being a surgeon. Amen to that. Actually, I shouldn't speak too soon. J's been acting pretty intrigued by the slicing and dicing even though I'm trying to put the ixnay on that right now. Thanks for having us stay, it was a great weekend away.

Katherine- Your hair looks awesome. You are so gorgeous and your girls certainly take after their mother! Just teasing Bobby, he's too busy to read this anyway. And the movie line is from Meet Me in St. Louis! An all time favorite of ours. I am always looking for it on old movie racks. I would love to have it. It reminds me of you.

Julia said...

It's so great seeing pictures of you on here! You are so beautiful Katherine!

Sara said...

Cute pictures - I like Franny's hair at that length.

Melissa said...

Happy b-day Katherine! Sounds like it was fun! Whatever you do, don't leave your new camera in your car, unlocked. It WILL get stolen. I learned the hard way. :-(

Chrissy said...
