flip girl



The photo CD arrived today from Loopy's Triple Flip photo shoot. Kudos to photographer Tracy D! She did an amazing job... just in case any of you are looking for a photographer! The photo above will be displayed at the Midtown Plaza store.


I thought you might like to see a few of the other photos from the shoot...


Check out Miss Loopy's groovy pants by Naomi. She digs the peace signs.


She's got a little of The Fan in her. She can be a hippie when she puts her mind to it.




Today the Grade 8 students visited the high school... the same high school some of their parents attended:

Loopy and her friend Alexandra wore their mother's old cheerleading jackets... like totally, for sure! Very retro. I'm glad I saved it. How cute must they have been, walking in like they owned the place (in 1983)...

She is too cute. My mom is armed with a set of cheerleading photos that I am sure she will one day use against me, but it's just too fun to not document.

Loopy is so photogenic!
Your school mascot looks like it's a teddy bear? My school mascot was a river rat! Really, we were the Huron River Rats.

Hey my sweet little chickee, I love that sweet tribute to your dad. It was so loving and I'd be proud of him also. Awwwww, he must love you and the fam a LOT!! As for my tree??? Well, it's to be put up shortly, but most people are gonna be disappointed as it is the traditional green tree with all the ornaments the kids and I have made over the years. I just can't bear to part with them or put PINKKKKK@!!! on there. Just our tradtion. AND hubs is putting it up this weekend. All the painting in the "main/public" rooms is done this go-round and then after the first of the year we'll finish off the "painting of th' pinkkkk!!!!" and be done with it. I'm lovin' livin' in a candy/confectionery store though!!! Squeeeeeeealllll........
Smooches and Merry Christmas,
Connie

She is rockin' the whole '80s Cheer thing in that last picture :) Too cute... all she's missing is a banana clip in her hair and some big mall hair. heheh
And I adore the candy houses below!

Genevieve said...

She is such a "STAR"~ such a beauty~
The pictures look great!

Speaking of pictures, do you have what I need yet to paint her? ;)

Haven't heard much of you, hope all is well darling.

BTW, I done went and awarded you something, so drop by and check it out. You are fablulous. So's your blog.

Katie said...

Like, that is totally, rad. For sure.

Christine said...

Love your ginger family! Love the pants. It sucks to be old. I could not pull off a pair of pants like that could I? Thought not. Sigh....

alittlebitofscrap said...

This gave me a huge smile! One reason why I love reading your blog :)

Oh Loopy looks SO C-U-T-E!! I LOVE the pics, the clothes...EVERYTHING!!!

FYI - I graduated from the same highschool as my mom too! - 20 yrs apt - her in '63, me in '83

Thanks!!

Maremone said...

Will you answer tidymoms questions puclicly? I have the same ones!

Loopy looked to cute....but I must admit I prefer your photos ;)

scrappaleica said...

love the jacket, can't believe you aren't walking around wearing it proud...

sassy studio said...

LOVE the new Loopy pics! Your ginger-family is soooo sweet! Happy Holidays!

MJ said...

Yikes! Loopy's attended a high school orientation. She probably felt like she owned the place as she's spent so much time there already! Now she's got the jacket to prove it!

I think it hilarious that the Fan was a hippie. My dad would always drive down the street, spotting any male with hair at shoulder length or longer and mutter "G-- d--- hippie". Such fond recollections from the 1970s!

AwtemNymf said...

Fab photo's of Loppy! She's so fun and it shows thru the pics! Genuine smile!
Youza must be so proud! For Sure- Like Totally *winks*

Wendy said...

I haven't been here in a while, and I've missed it!

Those are some really cute photos of Loopy... (love your old cheer jacket too)!

Junie Moon said...

Totally, absolutely, unconditionally fabulous!

Dear Saucy,
She is a doll!
Have a Happy Christmas.
Looking forward to 2009.
Namaste,
Sherry

Sherry said...

About a year and a half ago, we moved to Maryland. We are in an area where the parents and grandparents all went to the same school. Many students are now teachers in the same schools. We have seen many a jacket from 40 and 50 years ago.
Very cool that Loopy has yours to wear.

Saucy said...

Wow... do you know ANYTHING about my life, Anonymous comment loser? Is that you again, Elisabeth Hasslebeck?

Do you know that my daughter has special needs and struggled to sit up, walk and talk and because of me NOT HAVING A LIFE and spending 24 hours a day in therapy with her until age five, she can now do all of these things?

Do you know that she has Asperger's (a form of autism) and that she barely makes eye contact with people and the fact that she now gets all these pictures taken and is able to look into the camera and smile has taken us YEARS of coaching? And the fact that she won this opportunity because when we shopped in that store FOR THE SPECIAL SOFT CLOTHES THAT SHE CAN WEAR TO THERAPY the girls who worked there were so impressed with her manners and kindness that THEY NOMINATED her to be in their ad campaign?

Are you kidding me?

Are you really leaving ANONYMOUS (I mean LOSER SCARED SHITLESS) hate messages on the blog of a little wife and mother who does tons of really fun stuff with her kids?

DO YOU THINK MY KIDS DO NOT HAVE A LIFE? Check again, asshat. Read this blog instead of randomly landing here through some stupid Google search and making assumptions. Why don't you read about the movies we all go to AS A FAMILY almost every weekend, the crafts we do together, the scrapbooks I make for them and all the homework that I help them with!

Do I need to mention that you misused the word "FAG" in your comment and that I laughed so hard when I read it I choked a bit on my Evian (another word you don't know) and that I assume you must have been weaned from your mother's gigantic tit with a diet of Fresca and bacon puffs?

Grow up.

Carrie said...

Dear Anonymous,

Jealous much? LOSER!

Kate said...

Ok, that is ADORABLE. The photo shoot, yes that too. But I am talking about the JACKETS! You saved them! Awwww!!! Proud Mama or what when she left wearing that?!?!? Good times!

Kate said...

Oh my WORD I totally missed the above comments. BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Saucy trumps that one. Annonymous loser...well...LOSES. Asshat. I almost shot Evian out of my nose.

Linda Crispell said...

Asshat?!!! My new favorite word of all time!!! I am going to work that in to just about every conversation. Asshat. Beautiful.
How I hope Asshat returned to read your response.

Jenn@ You know... that blog? said...

I love the word Asshat. I have been known to use it on many an occasion.

You just know it's some chain smoking white trash bimbo with 6 kids (all different fathers) who is so unhappy and disappointed with her own wasted life she has to bring down any decent person she comes across.

Pay the asshat no mind, Saucy one, she's not worth it. We got a giggle out of your response though. ;)
