deserted nest


I have to wonder what got to the eggs, because there used to be three, and I'm pretty sure there were never hatched. Oh well. It's very cool to find a nest low enough to check out. This one is in a Crape Myrtle by our front door.


Sunday Citar

Where does the time go? It's Sunday again, my favorite day of the week, for not only does my soul get fed by worshipping, but I get to participate in the Sunday Citar, brought to us by the wonderful Tabitha of Fresh Mommy blog fame.


"Where flowers bloom so does hope."
~ Lady Bird Johnson


I just needed a little floral "hope" this morning. After all the cold, and all the rain, I'm eager for a little spring.



Katdish inspired me today with her monkey post over at her blog Hey look, a chicken! Her monkey story made me think of my girl and the bear she received as a gift on her 3rd birthday. She has yet to lose it, to my chagrin. Though, now when she plays with it, she is usually playing catch with her brother and seeing how high they can toss it in the air. Poor "bear" has seen better days, he gets no respect.

This is one of my favorite photos of bear and my girl.



iheartfaces...week 2 "best face photo"

The theme for this weeks photo challenge over at i♥faces is "best face photo".

I looked over several photos from the past six weeks and I kept coming back to this one. This is my Mom on Christmas day 2009. I guess I was drawn back to this one over and over because I ♥ her face so much. She is Mom to seven kids, six girls and one boy (I'm number 6). She is 76 years old and has had to deal with Crohn's disease for most of her life. She is loved by all her kids and grandkids and anyone who knows her.


I didn't do much editing on this shot. I cloned out a few flash glares from her glasses and cropped it a little and that was all it needed.

Love you Mom.

baby it's cold outside


This is our dog Zoe....she's been spending a lot of time in her doggie house with a pillow and some comforters. She's ready for summer.

So am I.

happy birthday to i ♥ faces

Happy Birthday to one of my favorite photo-sites. This weeks contest involved incorporating the "i ♥ faces" logo into up to 5 of your pictures. I only had the energy to do one. Hope you like it.

I am submitting this photo into the I Heart Faces logo photo contest. By entering, I am granting I Heart Faces LLC permission to consider my photo for use in the marketing and promotion of their website.

testing 1, 2, 3

I thought I'd give my photo-blog a bit of a face-lift this year. Hope it works the way I want it to.

Here are a couple photos of the kids...not fantastic photos by any means, but they do show them being silly and their true spirit when at play. Just ignore the junky backyard.

Weaving time in a tapestry, won't you stop and remember me

Look around, leaves are brown
And the sky, is a hazy shade of winter”

Many thanks to Annie (my eldest) for figuring out how to write "2010" backwards in the air. This shot only took two takes.

Happy New Years to all my blog reading friends. I pray for a year full of good things and abundant blessings for each and every one of you.
