First Shoot Me Picture: Moby D Wrap Baby

Forever In Blue Jeans

A dear friend lent this wrap to me, and I love it. It is more comfortable then any front pack carrier I've ever used, and easier on my back.
Dusty loves it too.

A Big Day for Daddy & a new blog coming soon...

Today is a big day for Daddy...

He has 10+ truckloads of yearlings coming to a nearby town, and it is pouring rain out. He set a new grass deal up, and it is always exciting/nerve racking when the trucks start coming.

Just Click on the Image to make it Bigger

We love you Dad and are proud of you! Everything will work out great.

(can't wait to post about my new blog once I am finished...this picture of Dusty is a little sneak peek of some of the images on it! I plan to have a blog contest once it is up)

Look Closely...

I guess I should explain this more clearly. I was slightly distracted last night when I posted it. It was more a reminder for myself to look closely as a photographer.
Sometimes it is easy to pass up a picture, and not LOOK CLOSELY. These couple shots below are some that after I took a second look I just loved them for lots of reasons.

Also just click on the images to make them bigger...
I am working on a new blog site that will showcase my pictures better, but not quite done yet.

Hope you enjoy!

Oh my dear dear boy...

I can't get enough of your chub, your toes, your fingers, your blue eyes, your red hair and your sweet smile.
Love you dearly.

A Picture

that I love...

52/52 Celebrate

I made it to 52 pictures. I thought it would only be fitting if I celebrated by posting about certain things I never knew about being a mother...
(also since Mother's Day is right around the corner)
Hope everyone has a Happy Mother's Day!

I never knew that I would have to consistently put my pillowcases back on my pillows throughout the day because my 4 & 2 year old love to take them off and then walk around inside of them.

I never knew how much simple lovely tulips could brighten my day.
It was snowing this morning, and my tulips outside are not close to blooming yet.

I never knew that alphabet cereal can become like cement pasted in your sink if you leave it sitting for awhile.

I never knew that I would come to prefer plastic plates, cups and bowls.

I never knew that I would allow a pretend snake in my house.
I never knew that a tape/CD player would be so wonderful.
I never knew that I would consistently head to the library every month to find books on tape and CD's.
I never knew that I would love listening to Hank the Cowdog of CD as much as my boys.

I never knew how much fun cantaloupe can be.

I never knew that a pillowcase could become pretend ice cream in a cup.

I never knew that broccoli would be such a treat.
I never knew that my boys would automatically think of it as trees (like I did as a kid.)

I never knew how wonderful my black Wal-Mart stools could be to a 4 & 2 year old.
They have to scoot them as close as possible to each other during dinner. They have to sit on the stools. They also use them to pretend they are riding in different kinds of machines (backhoe, tractor, skidster, etc...)

I never knew that my plant would be a perfect baby mobile.

I never knew that I would have 2 workout partners.

I never knew that McQueen shoes (on backwards) and crocodile crocs (on backwards) were the perfect workout shoes.


I choose not to haul baby Dusty this way! I took this picture right before Dusty was born, and it still makes me laugh. This is how you haul your baby around when you are 4 & 2 and ALL BOY!
