double take

Some people did a double take seeing Brad dressed this way.  He was on his way to the Christmas on the square parade last month.  I could not resist.  It is not every day you see James driving a car.

grace's game

I think I am going to need a new camera one of these days.  Most of the games ore at the middle school.  This one happened to be at rosecrans.  The lighting is a little better.  Action shots are hard to get with my old camera.

Nick was home today.. unsure what it was.  Bug? Migraine? 
It doesn't matter how old they get.  When they are sick they want their momma.

ME... again

OK..  Have you ever just hit the next blog button at the top?  WOW!!  It takes you on a journey of many types of people.  Many are artists. photographers, painters, moms and weirdos. 
i LOVED it!!
Very entertaining.
Please, check it out.
I loved looking at all the different designs on the sites.  I like mine.  It is very simple..  I have one question.  How do you make your picture show up under your follower user?  I already have a google account.  No biggie.  Just bothers me that I can't figure it out.

OK.. i never signed a "contract" about a picture everyday...  I missed a few..  Friday, I was sooo tired. I didn't feel like looking at another computer after work..The weekend went by so fast I missed it. 
Oh well, Today is a new day.  I will add to what I have and not look back.  This is still more than I would  have done.  Normally I only take picture at special events, birthdays, holidays.  So to you, these pictures may be boring.  WELL... we are boring!  I am sooo glad.  :)

this wasn't this morning.  She was relaxing in my bed after school.

I yelled at Grace to come downstairs..  "why?"  She said.
"To take a picture of us together" I said. 
She smiled.

today was productive.  I figured out how to post a profile picture.  Now I am going to upload my first picture of the year. 
Nick... getting ready to eat dinner. 
See!!  I told you most of these would be at the dinner table.  That seems to be the common gathering place.

New Beginnings....

This is a new venture for me.  A BLOG!!!  Who would have thought??  My friend Billie put this thought in my head about taking a picture a day and letting my kids have something to look back on..
This struck a chord with me.. I had been thinking since my mom died that I don't have enought pictures of myself.  Yes,  Most of us would say this.  I want to change this part of myself. 
My mom had so many pictures... she never complained about a picture.  Her life was full and she had a wonderful but short life.  
So we will see.  My life is boring.. Most will probably be pictures at the kitchen table..but it will be real.
FIRST!!!  I need to figure out how to move pictures from my camera to the blog..  Wish me luck!!!!
The camera will be out of the closet.. charged and on the counter.. TOMORROW!!!!
