Through the Lens Thursday: Twisted

I realize you’re all sick of seeing my dog. I know that. But I have had a long week and my creativity for the prompt was nonexistent, so you get action shots of a tug of war game with Louise’s twisted rope toy (she’s all better from the surgery and […]

Puppy Anxiety

How do I know that I’m getting older but still need some baby love sometimes? Louise went to the vet to get “fixed” last week, and I missed her like crazy, and also worried about her like a mom taking her child in for a procedure would. Okay, not quite […]

Project 365: Week 50

Dec. 7 I just can’t even with the Build A Bear vest and the sleeping puppy face. Dec. 8 I don’t seem to have taken a picture, but I did share this one of Erv at 8 months old. Dec. 9 Reading some bedtime stories in the morning. […]

Project 365: Week 47

Nov. 16 Even after the kids go to bed, I’ve still got somebody wanting thisclose to me. Nov. 17 I love bloggy friends, and I super love when they send me lovely things in the mail, like this stripey hand-painted card from Clare of Girl Fifteen, who has been […]

My Personal Bubble Has Been Popped

So, I’ve been solo parenting for a week now, and it’s not going to end any time soon (relatively….you know, for a mom of four young kids in the beginning of winter….another week and a half feels like FOREVER), but the hardest part this time around isn’t just the lack […]

Through the Lens Thursday: Shine

It was a sun-shiny day, and I had plans to try to capture my favorite swing photos, but from another angle to try to change it up. I ended up with very different pictures, though. The dog and two kids trying to shoot […]

Project 365: Week 45

Today’s my husband’s birthday! He’s so old! Happy birthday, babe!! Wait, seriously, only seven weeks left. IN THE YEAR?? Gosh…I wonder if I’ll do this for the third (fourth?) year in a row. Nov. 2 Ivy begged and begged to get an easel, and grandma obliged. Nov. 3 […]

Project 365: Week 44

This week led up to Halloween plus Drug-free week activities, and then POOF! November. Oct. 26 I actually did something spontaneous with the whole family on Sunday! (that never happens) I looked up a local city guide, saw that there was a ballet/dance Halloween production going on that afternoon, bought […]

Project 365: Week 43

We’re gearing up for Halloween, but not as much as everybody else, I guess…we went to the pumpkin patch this weekend, but nobody dressed up for parties or anything. And is it weird that I’m sad that I won’t be dressing up? I mean, I guess I could, but we’re […]

Project 365: Week 41

Oct. 5 I made my way home from LA on Sunday afternoon, and it seemed as though some creatures missed me….this one showed it the most, though. Oct. 6 We had beautiful weather….good for trying new swing tricks. Oct. 7 I had a dentist appointment, and for […]
