I was tagged by Deborah at Sunflower Stories for The Real Deal meme.
Here are the rules:
take a picture the way you would normally do to post on your blog, preferably crop it to showcase the subject. Then show us the "real deal"... the nitty gritty daily clutter that we sometimes try to avoid posting. Talk about the messes you cut out in the cropped picture. We'll still love you!!! Then tag at least two people and link back to your post. OK? Sound fun? Can't wait to be invited into every one's real life.
OK you asked for it! LOL This was an exceptionally messy day back in August... the kids decided it would be fun to throw clean diapers EVERYWHERE... they look cute, right?
Um yeah... how bout now? Don't you just love all the shoes in FRONT of the shoe rack???

Holly at Life With The Aytes tagged me for a different picture meme! The rules are to post my 4th picture from my 4th folder... so here it is:
Poor Kennedy! I think this is when Keeghan hit her in the eye!
Amanda at Proud Mommy of Four presented me with The Proximity Award
The Reason for the Award is:
"This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated."
I pass this on to Jenn and Carla.
