The First Day of Kindergarten

The new school year is officially off to a start here. Xander started his Kindergarten year yesterday. He didn't begin the day very thrilled about the idea. It was a tough morning getting our little night owl out of bed and off to the bus. He didn't want to eat...

Selune ~ Then and Now

Selune is our little photogenic cat goddess. She loves to be on camera! Our petite little Pandora is not so fond of cameras, so you don't get to see her so much. I will try to do a feature like this of her soon... if she cooperates with the "now" picture. It's by a...

{Throwback Thursday} Brain Freeze

Only throwing it back about a year here, but this is in my list of favorite photos. This is the first time he experienced a "slushie." He only got a few sips, but the looks he made while drinking them were so much fun. At the point I took this photo, he actually froze...

A Day at the Park

I decided to take the Prince to the park for a little playtime today. It was a bit overcast, but still some of the warmest weather we've had in a long time. I decided to take advantage of his good mood to sneak in a little photo shoot. Oh... he insisted on wearing the...

Puddle Progression

Yesterday was finally nice enough and dry enough (as in not snowing or raining or some combination of the above) to take the Prince out for a walk around the neighborhood. What toddler can resist a puddle? Certainly not mine! Of course, he got a bit lazy and less...

Your Blue Eyes Are Smiling

Just a random photo of the Prince with a great smile. It was a bit blurry, so I played with the coloring for a bit. Finally decided that black and white worked best, but I was disappointed that you couldn't see his blue eyes... so I removed the black and white effect...

UGH! Nanas!

My mom's birthday was on the 14th, but one or another of us has been sick or the weather has been awful so we didn't get around to her birthday dinner until last night. After dinner, my mom asked the Prince if Nana could have a birthday kiss. He gave in......

Our Tree

I decided to go ahead and decorate our Yule tree today. It feels strange to be doing it before Thanksgiving, but I was in the mood to do some decorating. I went with the black and silver on white again this year. I really like the way this combination looks.  I would...

Daddy’s Helper

We were at my mom's house and she needed help with hanging a heavy picture. The Prince thought that Daddy needed some extra help. I edited with PicMonkey... a little cropping, added the Orton effect, added the frame, and even made a vase of flowers on the mantle using...

The Kid & the Kindle

We were finally able to replace our Kindle a few weeks ago and it made all three of us very happy! I didn't realize how much I missed reading my books on it and how convenient it was for doing quick online tasks. The Prince loves to play with a variety of fun apps....

A Sick Day

I swear that we seem to pick up something every time Xander has his check-up with the doctor! Now we've spent the last two days feeling completely lousy. Not a great time for me to get sick, because I have a ton of product reviews to get ready for you all.... so many...

New Furniture

This post is long overdue... not because I took it a long time ago and forgot to post, but because it is something we have needed for about six years and we finally got it. New furniture! A local company that has been around for many, many years is going out of...

Biking in the Leaves

The leaves were falling off the trees so much today that it looked like it was snowing leaves. Despite the breeze, it wasn't terribly cold out, so Xander and I ventured out to play for a bit. He decided to bike down the little ditch in our yard while I panicked over...

Xander’s Third Birthday

This past weekend we had a few family members over for a simple cake and ice cream gathering. I was aiming for one of those informal, no-fuss type of gatherings. I can't do no fuss... Originally, it was going to be Friday evening on Xander's actual birthday, but we...

Owls

Okay, okay... so it has been pretty much two months since my last "daily" photo. I've been taking plenty of pictures, but I haven't gotten around to doing the editing and post creating for each day. Today's photo is an owl pillow art project. It comes from Orb...
