Lucky Me

Filed under: Elle & Zed,Family & Friends — by InterstellarLass @ 11:31 pm

I’m such a proud momma. I have to brag on my kids, because that’s how great they are. Friday, they helped Nick and were so very good, and for Nick to bestow high praise, they must have been fantastic. Saturday I braved an April snowstorm and watched Elle’s soccer game. Her team won 1-0 despite the cold. And, Zed was ever so patient Saturday. One of Nick’s friends came over and helped with our bathroom project (yes…still going on that one), and his kids came over too. It fell to Zach to help entertain them while I went and got my hair done. He’s growing up so much.

Today we had brunch with my family, and the kids again behaved so well. They really are growing up. Then I decided I wanted to take some pictures of them, and so we went to a park. This is the best of the both of them I think.

It was of course difficult for Zed to smile. I think that happens to most boys age 11. Elle kept wanting to run in her dress shoes over the rocks and dirt, and kept having to stop to hitch up her tights. Aren’t they just the sweetest though? I’m so damn lucky.



  1. they are lovely. they’re both gonna be heart breakers!!

    Those smiles break my heart every day they get bigger.

  2. They are so cute! Yes, my son started getting a goofy smile at 11. I am having anxiety over my son going to High School. Maybe that is part of my problem of late.

    High school! Oh no! I can’t imagine what those days will be like for me. Sniff, sniff.

  3. Beautiful! Great pictures! I love when I can make them stop arguing, moving and grimacing long enough to snap some nice pictures. Then we’re not stuck with the school’s version of my child in five hundred pieces that nobody asked if I wanted and I have to pay 39.95 for!

    Yeah, I’m lucky to get a good one from those school things. With a little adjustment, I think these are 100 times better.

  6. I see a whole lotta Lass 😉
    Good looking kids.
    But even better, they look happy.
    In this day and age that’s the best compliment I can give you, IMHO.
    Rock on…

    Flatterer. 😉 Thanks. I think they are happy, and that makes me glad. They had enough not-so-good-days in the past long ago, and whatever I can do to keep smiles on their faces like these is my goal.

  7. i don’t know, looks like he’s not having any problems smiling in these pics.
    they are two great looking kids!

    Smile. No, with some teeth. Relax a little. C’mon. Cheese! One, two. Just a little more teeth. Three!

  8. What couple of cutie pies. You can see that they are really good kids – a little sparkle in the eye says so much.

    I’ve been grinning like a total fool ever since I downloaded those photos. I can’t stop looking at them.

  9. Lovely pics!

    Wearing our best shoes to climb rocks is the only way us girlies are programmed don’t you think? I was just the same, wanting to wear your best stuff everywhere to do eveything :>)

    mmm no change there then when we’re out in our heels in our teens and we decide to walk home rather than getting a cab !!!

  10. That’s how you know that not only do you have great kids, but you must be a damn good mother too.

  16. They are wonderful and have wonderful smiles, like you. Zed looks so much like you. And Elle has your smile, I think. So sweet.

  18. I’m late to comment, but those pictures are priceless! I’d frame these, most definitely. 🙂

    “Elle kept wanting to run in her dress shoes….” LOL, that cracked me up. She’s adorable! Zed looks so mature. He’s a good looking teen, that’s for sure.
