Happy birthday, Daddy!

So although my dad’s birthday was yesterday, we had to wait until today to celebrate. Better late than never!

The boys and I headed over to my parents’ for dinner-very fancy frozen pizza! And after dinner, it was time for cake. My dad’s cake of choice is spice cake with penuche frosting. (Oh my goodness, […]

Happy half-birthday, Noah!!!***

Yes, we celebrate half-birthdays in our family. I grew up celebrating my half-birthday (which was last Friday by the way). My best friend’s mom used to make half cakes for us! I like celebrating them for my boys in particular, because they both have birthdays near the end of the year, quite close to Christmas […]

You Capture: Spring

Spring is:

There’s more spring to be seen over at Beth’s. Enjoy!


Over at I Heart Faces, the photo challenge for this week is “smiles”. We do a lot of smiling around here, so it was harder to choose a picture to use rather than actually finding one.

But I caught a great shot of Noah during his soccer game the other day. I […]


I’m just wondering what sources were used in determining this letter should come to my house?

The Tooth Fairy is officially broke!

She has to make a stop at my cousin’s house this time to deliver yet another stack of quarters for yet another tooth of Noah’s!

Noah’s tooth had been wiggly for a bit, but really got a lot more wiggly today when he bumped it with his knee (don’t ask me how he managed to […]

Fix-It Friday

I decided to give this another go. Mostly I did it because it’s such a lovely shot. I started thinking I was going to make it more vibrant, as I love that red door or wall behind her. But then I tried out a preset on Lightroom (Creative-Aged Photo), and I really […]

From Lying Down

It’s “Team-up Thursday” (or diptych) time again! The theme was “FROM LYING DOWN” and it was a fun challenge.

First, Catheroo’s shot:


And mine:

No, I didn’t set the cars up. That was all Caden’s doing.

We’re linked up over at Mental Inventory, so go check out more teams!


You Capture: Fresh

I had all sorts of plans to get shots of my lilac bush that is starting to show bigger buds, or my daffodils (that refuse to bloom, though I think they’ll bloom this weekend-while I’m out of town!), or even my fresh, clean laundry. But all I got was this:

It’s […]
