First, let me just say this… The snow has descended upon us. And it’s a beautiful thing. My boys thought so too. They couldn’t wait to get home from our afternoon spent at a military Christmas party to don their brand new snow garb. Since I couldn’t decide who to focus on for this week’s Snapshot, I decided I’d just… Read More
Asher has been sick off and on since Saturday. Today was a sick day. Too bad for Asher that sick days around here are not pretty. Notice the austere surroundings. Down comforter. Deck of cards. DVD case stuffed with movies ad nauseum. And Toaster Streudel. In addition to being one tough mama, I’m a health nut. And I don’t care… Read More
Asher means “happy” in Hebrew. If ever a child truly embodied his name, it would be my boy. He is happy. And he makes me happy. He loves sweets. It couldn’t possibly have anything to do with the fact that I craved cherry pie filling during my entire pregnancy. I must have eaten a lot of said cherry pie filling… Read More
Last night during, you guessed it, football practice, I took a few pictures of the kiddos. Nothing too exciting… I just like to pull the ol’ Nikon out every now and then to capture a little of the same old same old. Here’s my dude. Just hanging out. Asher is always a willing participant when momma wants to snap a… Read More
Ahhhh. This is what our boys’ room / kids’ playroom looks like now. To fully appreciate it… it’s beauty, it’s simplicity, let’s take a trip down memory lane… Here’s what it looked like about 3 months ago. Before we moved in. Amazingly, we bought this house from an older couple. A couple. As in two people. And this was a… Read More
… for a mommy meltdown. My babies started school today. Suddenly vanished are the memories of endless lunch hours, the overflowing laundry basket, the fact that I can get no.thing. done. I just want my babies to stay home a little longer. Suddenly, they look so tiny. And big. Has it already been a year? But too little to be… Read More
I love my kids. And I love to capture their individual ‘beauty’ whenever I get the chance. I like to get right up in their grill and either try to just leave well enough alone, wanting to capture the simplicity of the moment… or do something silly to get a reaction. I took all these close-ups at the beach, where… Read More
Donna over at Double Happiness whipped this ‘fix-it Friday’ for my overexposed beach pix… Thanks, girlfriend!! I love it!
More beach pics. Surprise. Another day hanging out on the Atlantic… cool breezes, warm ocean, a multitude of shells. These pics are a bit more overexposed than I usually take, but I thought they were worth keeping. Especially considering they are of some of my very favorite subjects. On the entire planet.
Somebody turned 10 years old yesterday. I’m not sad about it at all. Not. One. Bit. I mean, just because I can still remember the moment he entered this world like it was yesterday. Splotchy and pruned. And huge. Did I mention he was huge? A solid pound and a half bigger than all my other kiddos. And, in an… Read More
