A Welcome Gift

I just love the feel of this picture. All those little arms wrapped around Mommy's tummy, and the littlest one kissing her belly. SO precious!

Operation Christmas Child Full Video 2008

Another ministry close to me heart! It is amazing to think that 7 Million boxes were delivered last year to children who had NEVER received a gift before. There is so much HOPE in this giving of a simple shoe box. Here is the link to watch the full video:

God Bless all of you!

Would You Please Consider......

Sponsoring a child from Compassion International? You can visit their website here:

It's something that's very heavy on my heart lately. $32 a month CAN change a life. Really.....

Sassy Pants and The Joker spent some time with their "Gams" on Friday night and came home with this pumpkin. I thought they did a great job on it. Now as for the picture, not that great because I didn't have my tripod handy so it's not *quite * in focus. ( no flash)But you get the idea anyway :-)

For the few of you who ask me what settings I used, I erased my pictures on my camera before I remembered to look. But I know I shot on AV mode at f/4.5, my ISO was set at 400 and my shutter speed must have been 3 or 4 seconds.

My Mom

She's in her 50's and looks great! People tell me often I look just like her. I take that as a compliment. She's beautiful lady, inside and out and I am so thankful for her! I don't get to see her much , but I treasure my time I get to spend with her.

So in honor of her, if you can, go hug your Mom today!


My parents and their grandkids. (My 4 plus my nephew) My son, the Joker, did not feel much like smiling for this picture. but all in all, not a bad shot.

Home School Co-Op - October

Nature Studies class for 3-5 year olds. Can you see what they're looking at? Here, maybe this will help: scroll down......

Can you say gross? I pretty much took the picture and then dry-heaved.....

Some looked closer than others :-)

After they made a spider in their journals. Here is a mom drawing a spider web for her daughter :-)

And they finished playing a game by pretending to be "spiders" and finding "food" on their "web".

I just love love LOVE the mood of these photos! I seriously wish ALL my photography sessions went this easy and were as much fun! I had nothing to do with these shots either. They wanted a "jumping" shot together and it was their idea to toss up the leaves. (Honestly I thought it wouldn't come out well- I'm glad I was wrong!) I like these shots the most out of all the ones I took from the day.



I had the privilege of photographing my friends baby today. She's 4 months and absolutely adorable. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

I love doing this stuff!
