  One of our family’s favorite outings is shopping at Target.  And if it’s close to meal time, the kids get especially excited- because it often means a hot dog combo!

  This was sort of posed, she was on the couch but got off before I could get the camera, so I asked her to get back on.  I started to tell her, “Say ‘Cheese,’” but instead asked her what else we could say.  She came up with a bunch.  This particular shot was, “Fuzzy pink […]

  Part of my current “art in everything” series: the kids had left the Teddy Grahams on the table after their snack, and I thought the monochromatic look made an interesting composition.  I like the way this one turned out.

April 8 Photo- The Great Egg Hunt

  Typical for this time of year, the rain forced us to move the annual family egg hunt indoors.  K’s mom went all out with getting the eggs ready, the adults had a good time hiding them, and the kids found them in a fraction of the time it took us to hide them. The entire […]

April 7 Photo- Traditions

  For the past 9 years we have gotten together with K’s parents the day before Easter so the kids can color eggs. (I don’t think we did when E1 was a few months old, but I don’t remember.)  What was once a fun activity has now become a grand production, since there are so many more […]

April 6 Photo- Seriously

  E3 graciously said okay to posing for me, although she wasn’t all that interested.  Which meant, all her smiles were completely fake.  I tried all sorts of things, but this was really the only one that turned out at all.  This the one I said, “Whatever you do, don’t smile!” and pressed the shutter […]

April 5 Photo- The Magic of Felting

  I was so excited, the wool/soy blend yarn felted beautifully!  It only took one hot/cold cycle through the washer to make them the perfect size.  They are now finished, unless I decide to try to add some kind of drawstring or elastic to the ankle to help them stay on a little better. I just […]

April 4 Photo- Almost Mocs

  I got in much more knitting time- it seems E4 was happiest riding on my back in the Ergo, probably because that position helped the congestion the best.  The knitting is finished, next I sew up the back and sole, and then into the washer to felt down to the right size.  I read […]

  Hmmm, like this it doesn’t look like very much. 🙂  Both of the littlest girls were not feeling well with their colds, so we got lots of snuggles in the rocking chair.  I usually am on the computer quite a bit anyway on the 3rd and 4th of each month as that’s when I’m […]
