Ryan-3 Months

Ryan's 3 month pictures were last weekend and it's
taken me a week to get thru them. And when I walked in,
he was watching basketball. Not just looking at the tv,
but actually watching it! Someone's getting a head
start! What a little doll. In such a good mood and he
smelled so good...give him time, just give him time!
Little boys and dirt just go together like peanut
butter and jelly! But until then...I sniffed him...
a lot! ;)













DSC_0148 cute is he?! I just want to reach right
thru the computer and smooch him!

Another try...

Now that the sun's back out, I took a few more...
I like them all, just for different reasons. The blue
sky does add something extra though.

More blooms

The bradford pear trees are beautiful.


This one looks like a cross to me.

This kid cracks me up! Thank goodness for a quick
shutter! I don't think he'll give Michael Jordan a
run for his money though! :)

Kids & cameras

Hunter (and Maison) wanted to take some pictures with
me on Satuday, so I let them use my old camera and snap
away. The delete button is AWESOME...but they did get
a few good pictures.

He was so cute that I had to get one of him.

Not bad for a couple of punks! ;)

Just a few

I snapped a couple the other night before the kids
left for church. I downloaded a new photoshop action
(because I'm not smart enough to make my own ;) and
just love how it worked on this picture.


I love this one as a b&w. It gets rid of the
distracting background.

Spring storms

I'm not a fan of spring storms...well, I do love a
good storm...just not a "severe" storm. (Not sure how
many people actually do though.) This one kind of
snuck up on us, as I had not had the tv on all
day and caught a blip on the news about dinnertime.
We decided we had about an hour and wanted to gas
up the car, so we ran into town...and sort of ran
right into it. D'OH! It ended up being a quick storm
with little punch thank goodness.

Storm's chasing us!


Too late, storm's here!

After a wet, chilly weekend, I was afraid my tree was
going to get snapped and lose all it's blooms. No fear, it
is still going strong and we had a beautiful sunset to
round out the day. I'm hoping it's warm enough for the
bees to come back out tomorrow.

My tree has bloomed...almost overnight it seems. I
had noticed the blossoms starting to pop, but wow, today
the whole tree was a-buzz with blooms! There may not
have been thousands, but there were certainly hundreds
of bees hanging out today. I just hope Mother Nature
doesn't play a nasty trick on us and snap all the
pretty blossoms!



This may be the first print that I have done on
canvas to put on the wall...eventually!

It hits me...usually once a year...ok, maybe twice,
but it really depends on what's happening in life. I am
uninspired. I have no desire to take pictures...well, I
have the desire, just nothing "fun" on the books. I really
need to snap out of it, because life's too short to be

This picture was taken in 2004...and keeps popping up on
my digital frame. It was taken with a little point &
shoot camera...and proves that you really don't need a
fancy smancy camera. I did tweak it a little, but that's
just me. There really wasn't anything wrong with it. It's
one of my favorites of my baby...not such a baby anymore!
So after uploading this picture, I had the "bright" idea
to go do a current one...all that did was depress me...
good golly child, would you just stop growing?!
