do you hear what I hear?

No one would ever accuse me of being a talented singer.  No one.  But, I do make a joyful noise around the holidays.  And so, I have my car radio tuned to our local Easy Listening station which from Thanksgiving to Christmas plays non-stop holiday schmaltz.  And I eat it up!  I sing all of […]

little baby c

This little girl was about 6 weeks old.  She is adorable and just starting to smile and show her burgeoning personality.  The session started late and it started to rain.  So much for natural light.  Refusing to use a flash, we got a little creative with shutter speeds and iso settings. Enjoy. SPL

Mister O

I had a teacher in high school that we affectionately called Mr. O.  This little guy here though doesn’t have a beard and doesn’t teach listless sophomores about details of Modern European History.  This new Mr. O has only been around for about two and a half weeks.   Isn’t he adorable?  It’s usually hard to […]

fun with templates

I had a little fun with some templates and my lake photos.  I can’t write much, because it’s my last day on the lake.  Enjoy. SPL

It's too darn hot

I took the kids on a field trip the other day, because it was 102F outside and I wanted to do something fun, but indoors.  We have been having what feels like record-breaking temps recently.  I’m sure that there’s some Nino/Nina something-0r-other to explain the wacky weather. However, for our outing, we decided on the […]

The ones that got away: poll

Thanks to all who voted in our poll yesterday. Our clear winner was  The boy at the birthday party.  CONGRATS! These are some great photos, but not necessarily the ones you’d want on your wall (unless you’re me.) I love the quirky faces and funny expressions.   I need to find my ice-cream-covered-face shots for later… […]

Baltimer and cousin, Bella (pt.1)

This summer we made a weekend trip to visit my family in Baltimore.  Here are the first few shots that I took.  But there are more to come so stay tuned.  My kids absolutely loved the Maryland Science Center.

Golfing is a fun family activity

My husband bought the most adorable little golf club sets for the boys a few years ago. Robert has had a few lessons, but Carter just likes to whack at the ball. All three of them are hackers. This weekend, we enjoyed the links as a family. Brian played, Robert and Carter teed off and […]
