Where has the time gone….

I think it’s time I dusted off the blog.  I had great visions of this becoming a way to share life – and both the good and sometimes not so great about being a 21st Century mom.  The bonus – or so it seemed at the time – was that… 

It’s beginning to look like Christmas!

It’s starting to look like Christmas here!  It’s just as good a time as any to start blogging again, so I thought I would just jump in. Each year I try to do something nice for my children’s teachers, after all it’s not always an easy job, and I am… 

Puppies and other things

I know it has been a while since I blogged (which is not a good thing). However, it’s been a nutty spring and summer and I am so excited to be back to blogging and letting everyone know about the exciting things in our lives. I have stepped back from… 

Week 2 of 2/52 – Side by Side

Who knew that trying to remember to take a photo with BOTH children in it would be so hard. Once again I found myself on Saturday trying to find a time/place/and two willing children for a photo opportunity.  Today they were constantly trying to pick fights and at one point (just before… 

52 Weeks of My Two

This is the first of 52 times I plan to photograph the two of them together. Better late then never, as they were a bit squirmy all week, so I procrastinated… the result was that when Saturday came and I wanted to photograph them, they were sick. John seemed fine… 

Day 6 (366) – Four Legged Friends

I am pretty sure that our two dogs would say they are our children and sometimes I think they even have expressions and act just like John and Kate. Doing a photo a day will be challenging, and sometimes (like today) the photo doesn’t happen until right before bed, but… 

Day 5 (366) – The Toys

  Kate is clearly the easier one to photograph, at the moment. Just wait until I start to ask about Star Wars, Legos or Light sabre’s and I will get John in front of the camera just as much.  Tonight as I was putting the toys away I looked at… 

Day 4 (366) – American Girl Dreams

I think if Kate could have a room full of dolls she would not be happy.  She is busily planning and telling me exactly which American Girl Dolls she likes and why.  I guess she figures if she tells me at least four months ahead, that somehow I will get… 

Day 3 (366) – Back to work and school

Today we went back to work/school, and let me tell you I cannot wait for summer.  We will still have to be out of the house at the same time, but I won’t have to pack all the extra stuff like boots, snow suits, my shoes, hats, mittens …. Well… 

Day 2 (366) – Light

  I am a gluten for punishment, but I am not only  now doing two different photography challenges this year,but I also added in another 52 week project.  What can I say I love to be busy, and after all challenging myself with photography is a way I relax. This…
