Who stepped on the duck?

Originally posted on April 10, 2010 by Ginger Hansen Photography Why are farts so funny? We all break an occasional wind, just like we all walk, talk, sneeze, or sleep. So why is the fart such a hilarious moment that needs to be celebrated with snickers and high fives. Belly-busting for busting tail. I live with three men […]

Thanksgiving cards

This time of year is getting busier, but it’s not as hectic as December.  For the past two years, I have sent out Thanksgiving cards.  They are two-sided.  One with a picture of the boys {or family} on our yearly family vacation and the other side with either another fun family photo {or a picture […]

It’s beginning to look like Christmas… and if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em

So the retailers have been on the Christmas prowl since this summer.  I saw Christmas trees up in stores in August.  Back to school supplies in stores before school was even out and Christmas shopping in August!  No wonder there’s global warming; we can’t get our shopping seasons correct. All that said, I am all […]

I’m trying out using a voki for my smartboard activities.  Here she is for now. She’s a little stilted in her speech, but it could be fun.  I think the some students could benefit from listening several times.  She doesn’t get bothered by the repetition as much as I do. We’ll see how it goes. […]

New no-bake Nutella cheesecake

I saw a recipe on Pinterest the other day for this no-bake Nutella cheesecake.  It sounded like a great pairing.  But, I can’t stand cool-whip.  It tastes like raw chemicals to me.   Yes, I’ve used the stuff before, but I’m trying to cut a lot of junk out of my life.  Obviously, that doesn’t […]

Getting “high” in New Mexico

There is something strange about agreeing to get into a basket with your whole family to float about 2400 feet above the ground using only hot air to hold you aloft.  Who would have dreamed this up, you ask?  The French, of course.  Something completely impractical, but incredibly beautiful; that’s so French.  {and they’ve been […]

Rock the Dad Shot

I’m back after a nice long break.  I’ve been devoting all of my free time to teaching these days.  BUT, school is out for the summer and I’m slowly finding my way back to the computer and to my old friends, Photoshop and Lightroom. Anyway, I saw that the people at Rock the Shot are […]

Who let that baby play with fire?

Well, it’s raining today because, if you haven’t heard, we have this hurricane thing coming.  {Even the astronauts are afraid.}  We still have power here in Norfolk and I’m going a little crazy in my house. Maybe I should clean something…. nah. So, here are some photos I took the other day when we were […]
