Four amazing (!) kids came to my house to have their pictures taken. Usually four kids is quite the job, but these guys were so easy to work with. Thanks so much kids!!!

All the leaves were gone, but the weather was still nice enough. The one thing that is nice that time of year is the light. I also love how the dry grass ads a cool feel to the images.

Here are some of my favorite images. Enjoy!

 

 

 

In the middle of winter…a little sign of spring shows up in our house…TULIPANER!

I will never claim to have a green thumb…both my grandmothers have at least two each!!! At my house…if they survive…I’m doing something right…if not…well…it wasn’t the right kind of plant for me!

In October or November…my mind can’t remember that far back…I planted a bunch of bulbs. I would look and look and look for buds, but nothing…for the longest time. Then during Christmas sometime they finally showed up! They have been millimetering up (NO inching here!) out of the pot. I’m sure the quality of dirt isn’t the best…as well as many other things, but HEY!!!…they’re growing!!! Jippi! It is a miracle every time a flower buds out. I finally have ONE that’s been showing us the miraculous wonders of the plant world.

As much as I am enjoying winter, now that we finally have some snow, I am excited already about spring…my very favorite time of year…that is just a few months away! I hope this brings you a little joy as well!

It was a blustery cool afternoon when we headed to Decorah (IA) to finally get the annual family photos done. There are so many cool backgrounds in that town and it makes it really fun to shoot. The only thing that was a little hard, was the fact that the wind was so cool that it was hard to get comfortable. The kids were troupers and we still got lots of fun shots. Thanks guys!

Grandma & Grandpa joined in for some of the shots. What sweet people! I see where Mom gets her good looks!

After the Christmas card was finished, Mom decided she wanted to do something different this year. Love the idea of a photo of the kids on an actual stamp!! GO MOM! Check out the very first image. Cool idea!

I have so many favorites…and here are some of them. Enjoy!
