400 liters of FUN! – a followup

January 21, 2011

Here is my beautiful, new newborn posing ottoman. To some, it might look like no big deal.  But, it was a very big deal. Maybe as big as a SNOW day. So much fun I welcomed the mess.  Maybe even participated in it. The styrofoam balls were so slippery (Christopher says I need to say [...]

400 liters of mess

January 18, 2011

In mid-December I ordered a wonderful bean bag ottoman that’s made specifically for photographers for posing newborn babies.  I just got it in last week, and I was so excited to try it out for today’s shoot. The drawback is that it doesn’t come already stuffed with the bean bag filling.  The lady who makes [...]

January 14, 2011

So where to start?  A recap of December 2010!  Get ready for a hodgepodge – a Christmas jello salad – kind of blog post. What a whirlwind month December was!  I was still doing shoots and editing and designing Christmas cards right up till the last minute.  So fortunate to have business, but it makes [...]

Happy First!

December 3, 2010

I really cannot believe that this baby is already one. December 3, 2009 I was at the hospital right now anxiously awaiting her arrival.  And at 7:35 pm she was born.  She has filled our lives with pure joy (along with her sisters!) Here are a few pics from her birth… Right after she was [...]

The Halloween blues

November 7, 2010

We’ve been busy at our house – being sick! The A girls got sick last Saturday and were sick until Tuesday night, with Scarlet Fever…basically Strep Throat but they break out in a rash at the end.  Then this past Friday, I got it.  I literally could not get out of bed yesterday.  Today I’m [...]

Baby duck, babies, big kids and a birthday

September 15, 2010

Going in 18 different directions has not left me a lot of blogging time. But the girls are playing and the house is somewhat picked up, so I thought I would use this time to post. A few weeks ago, my father-in-law rescued two baby ducks from his pond.  They were leaving to go out [...]

7 months!

July 19, 2010

I know I’m behind, but better late than never, right? Baby C turned seven months old on the 3rd! She has a tooth and a half on the bottom, still not much hair (although it is growing in, and it’s very fine and light), she’s eating baby food and she keeps us entertained. She is [...]

A happy June

June 28, 2010

June has been a month of celebrations. My beautiful, creative, sweet Big A turned SEVEN on June 16th.  I can’t believe that she’s been in our lives for seven years.  It seems like just yesterday she was crawling around, babbling and getting her first tooth.  And now I think she might be the only one [...]

The Warrior Dash, etc.

May 19, 2010

So remember back in January when I announced that I was going to get in shape to run the Warrior Dash that I had signed up for?  Well….I did follow through with the actual event, but no real training leading up to it like I had originally planned.  But I ran/walked it, and I had [...]
