Supermoon Sunset

A few days ago, during the full moon, we had what is known as a supermoon. For those who don't know, a supermoon is when the full moon coincides with the point when the Earth is closest to the Moon. That night we had an amazing sunset. I snapped a picture through our...

My Daddy

A photo from our Father's Day dinner... Xander hugging his daddy's arm. It's one of those sweet moments you're glad to catch on camera....

Sleepy Boys

My husband and son spent a lot of time outdoors today. They were doing yard work. Well, it would be more accurate to say that Ross was attempting to do yard work while chasing Xander around the yard trying to keep him from breaking himself or something else.  :smile:...

Double Rainbow

We had a very heavy rain storm the other day. We were driving along the highway and had to slow down to a fraction of the speed limit... we couldn't see a thing! Then suddenly it stopped and these two rainbows appeared. I edited this in an iPhone app called Camera+,...

Amusement

Today's photo is actually a gallery of photos from our day at the amusement park and nature preserve. It was one of our rare chances to see my nieces. It's always nice to see them, and I love to take pictures of everyone together. I edited everything in PicMonkey. So...

Basket Case

Xander playing with his blocks in a basket. This game entertained him for a solid hour. I really need to rethink my toy buying strategy... perhaps start shopping in the home section? The photo came out a bit blurry, so I took some liberties with the editing. I took...

Blue Eyes

I snapped this quick shot to show my mom Xander's latest haircut. Our local salon specifically for kids shut down, so we had to find a new place that could do a decent kid's haircut. I had heard many horror stories regarding numerous local salons, so I was a bit...

Movie Night

Ross was watching a movie... Return of Pink Panther or something equally scary 😉 ... and Xander decided the best vantage point to join in was from Ross' lap. He eventually dozed off on his perch. I edited this in PicMonkey. (I'm obsessed.) I added the Film Edge...

Keeping the Pillow Warm

I have once again caught the elusive and rare Pandora cat on camera. It is a grainy shot taken in near darkness so as not to disturb it. I thought that I had discovered it dead... it is belly-up, after all... but the female Pandora cat was just keeping my husband's...

A Graduation

Today we retired my son's treasured sipper cups. They kind of... oh, ooops... fell into the trash. He wasn't exactly broken up about it, because he had some fun new glasses to use. I found a set of four BPA-free glasses with lids and straws for under $4. they are...

My Son and My Eye

Just a quick photo snapped of my son and my eye while we were outside today. I edited with PicMonkey. I used the Tranquil effect. Then I added a small Sunglow spot between us, which improved the color over what was there from the real sun glare. Then I...

Catching Rays and Z’s

Cats have an enviable ability to sleep anywhere, anytime. I have not been getting much sleep, so I've become a bit obsessed with taking pictures of the cats sleeping. Weird, right? Edited entirely within the iOS app Camera+. I just cropped the image a little,...

Chef Xander

We have had a really rough weekend. Xander's eczema flared up horribly with no explanation and he has not been sleeping at all... he's too busy scratching. Nothing we do seems to bring relief, so we aimed to distract as much as possible. This meant he helped make...

A Polaroid Moment

I took several photos today that I was going to use as the photo of the day, but the last photo I took ended up being my favorite. Ross was getting Xander ready for bed and Xander was doing all he could to prolong the process. An amusing bit of mimicking and chatting...

Neighborhood Rummage Sale Haul

This weekend was our neighborhood's annual community rummage sale. We usually have around 100 families participating. I decided to skip having my own this year so that I could get out and shop the sales. I should have just had my own... I wasn't really impressed this...

Blue

I love our cat Selune's eyes. They are an incredible blue color that doesn't always come across well in photos. I finally caught that blue in true-to-life color! I first edited this photo with PicMonkey. I applied the Black and White filter and then used the tool to...

Sleepy Cats

It's a beautiful day here... finally... so naturally the cats are napping. Why change their habits for nice weather? I love Selune's face in this. She was legitimately snoring, which made the face that much more amusing. Pandora is there too. Selune apparently...

Tractor

My mother-in-law lent us this awesome pedal tractor. Xander is obsessed with it. He's just a tiny bit too short for it, so he can't pedal it yet... but that doesn't slow him down any! I used Pixlr-o-matic to add some aging and make it look a bit vintage. I like the...

The Face

I take pictures of everything... all the time... and I thought it would be fun to start sharing my favorite photos under a new category called Photo Album. My goal is for it to be daily, but we'll see how that goes. 😉 Today's photo is of Xander and the cute face he...
