A Photo Prop & a Fifth Birthday

The photo challenge over at I Heart Faces this week is using props in your photos. With this I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to catch up a little bit on all things blogging and I thought I could use this picture of Liz and her giant sized teddy bear. 

 Honestly, since I came home from Massachusetts and my uncles funeral last week it has been nothing but go, go, go.  I will be telling you all about our trip soon. The real reason I came to talk to you today is ~ hold on to your hat now:                

I have a confession to make.  

Her Birthday was July 7th. 

11 DAYS ago and I haven't posted about it yet. Can you believe that?  What a bad blogging mommy I am. Honestly, I have been so swamped with things going on around here since I came home, I just haven't had a chance to put a birthday post up. I left Mark with four kids, a business to run and lots and lots of laundry to do. While I was gone one of the things that happened last week was Stevie Wonder bought himself a new toy. You know how he loves to build and tinker. This time he bought  a dremel. With this new toy, he  cut his finger badly again this summer.  It really does take two of us to keep an eye on things  and so when one of us is gone and then we come back home the punishment is. . .more work to do. 

Blogging had to be the last thing on the list. 

Even though her 5th birthday was July, 7th. . .11 days ago. . . I just couldn't get to a post about it.  

I will have you know, according to her, the birthday went off just grand and The Best Nana ever bought the best present ever.      AND  now, she's 5 and 11 days.  and I think. . .

Blogging and posting is not the most important thing.

  13. NO blogging is not the most important thing in the world, but many more Birthday BEARS for Liz.

    I try to read blogs on days I do not write. I read more than I write, but when I do write it is an epistle, so my sister calls them.

    However, some days it is a photologue.

    Blogging to me is one of many hobbies I have in my retirement.

    I love that giant bear! My kids would, too. :)
