The Captain and I don’t do much in the way of material things for holidays (including birthdays)…we stopped doing cards and flowers and trinkets before the kids were even born. What we do like to do is do “birthday weekends” or Mother’s and Father’s Day weekends. The entire weekend belongs to the person of honor.… Read More Mother’s Day Saturday
More testing out the trusty old 50mm f/1.4D lens after The Captain fixed its extreme back focus issues with my Nikon D7000. I can’t even begin to say how thrilled I am to have this lens functioning again. I haven’t used it for almost two and a half years! My girls are more than happy… Read More Sunny morning play.

A few weeks ago on my solo Thursday night, Peanut fell asleep in her bed by… Read More Tonight, this happened.

If one were to ask The Captain and I to describe our girls with only one word each, we would both immediately answer that Pumpkin is “Mischief” and Peanut is “Mayhem”. Please let Baby Boy be “Mellow”. Photos are from the back yard on March 16th.
I’m going through almost 8,000 photos from 2012 to make a family album, and I’m having to fight tears the entire time. I am so thankful that I have this record of our lives. A few observations. One: babies grow so, so fast. Two: I have remarkably adorable children. Three: I take WAY too many… Read More Thank goodness for photos.
