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...

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...

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...

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, Mom!

Image Source Today was my mom's... ummm... 39th birthday. I'm still trying to figure out how it is that I am getting closer to her age again. This same strange phenomenon occurred in my 20s... only then she was 29 for several years. You'd think she were fibbing about...

Post-Holiday Wrap-Up

With the all of  the preparations and parties of the holiday season and my husband on vacation until the new year, my attention to my duties as blogger have been a bit slap-dash for the past several weeks. I've been missing a lot of my daily and meme posts... plus...

Xander’s First Snow

We finally had our first real snow here yesterday. Ross and I took Xander outside to play with the snow. This was really the first year he was truly old enough to appreciate the fun of it. He was just two months old for his first snow and had only been walking a short...

Traumatized by Santa?

We took Xander to see Santa last night. It left me wondering why we all torture our young kids with this childhood right of passage. What is it about a child crying on Santa's lap that makes us both sympathetic and amused? Then I remembered that although I have my own...

I Can’t Explain It

Why am I up when I'm completely exhausted?! I can't explain it. Xander and I had a very challenging day. He seemed determined to make himself miserable... and I got caught in the crossfire. He was in to everything he's ever been told not to touch. He was throwing...
