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...

Is it Naptime Yet?

You may have noticed a distinct lack of certain content that I post daily and that there has been very little activity around here. I'm not checking out on you all... it has just been a rough couple of days. I need a nap! Image Source Xander has been having a round of...

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...

Winter Wonderland?

We had some pretty wild thunderstorms last night. I was very impressed that Xander and Ross both slept straight through some of the cracks that I heard. Unfortunately, I was woken by Pandora. I guess we know where the phrase "scaredy cat" comes from. 😛 I woke up this...

Our Easter

We did something a little different this year and had Easter at my mom's house instead of Ross' dad's house. I got up way too early yesterday and was sleepy, so it was nice staying closer to home and keeping things on a smaller scale. Ross and I enjoyed the chance to...

Happy Birthday, Ross!

I just had to send out a very special wish of a happy birthday to my dear husband. I have been very lucky that he found his way into my life and I hope we get to spend the next 41 years together! I love you, Ross. Happy...

Taking a Sick Day

As the title says, I am going to be taking a sick day today. The combination of bipolar Wisconsin weather, my husband's 12-hour shifts, and my son waking at two every morning finally did me in. I'm not deathly ill or anything, but enough so that even writing this post...
