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
The high was 75 the other day and there was no way I wasn’t going to do something to get my kids outside to enjoy the weather. I called my friend Terri and we met up for lunch and a trip to the local park. I even grabbed Asher out of a grueling day of kindergarten to join us. Seemed… Read More
We spent the majority of our long weekend at home, working on the upstairs bathroom. Well, actually it was me on ‘kid duty’ and Chris upstairs, working away. I must admit, I was a bit jealous as the days wore on and the kids got punchy. The reason my better half has to do the work himself is that we… Read More
