Mother Nature-

August 20, 2014

Brooke is now going to beauty school and they did a day where everyone had to make themselves up as someone…She was Mother Nature…I love the colors and how awesome she looked…I’m so happy that she is happy and doing something that she loves. I also love that I have someone that can do my hair all the time! That is a big extra bonus!

Chloe the Princess-

August 15, 2014

I have wanted a cat now for 23 years. My husband is not a cat person. He hates them actually. I had one as a child and loved him so much…Even after he played with my hamster while I was at the movies and ended up killing it. That was hard! So, my husband finally said I could get a cat. We found two and the first lady flaked on us, then the second lady flaked on us and by that time my son and I were both heartbroken….I found this guy on craigs list that had found a kitty that he had to get rid of because he was allergic….I went to pick her up and it was love at first sight. She is so AWESOME. I adore her! Chloe is the princess in our house and is spoiled as much as my kids if not more..My husband even actually likes her now too. She is beautiful. Cats have such great personalities. I could take pictures of her all day while she sleeps…Chloe the Princess

Today is my mother in laws birthday. She is no longer with us but she will always live in our hearts…She was such a wonderful woman. A woman of strength, kindness, compassion and love. I did not speak spanish and her english was very little but we spoke to each other with our hearts. I look back now and wish I had not always been so rushed, so short with her at times…..Things we always think after we lose someone that we love. We wish we had spent more time with them, said nicer things, really valued who they were to us but often times we get so busy in our own little world that we forget that they will not always be there and then we live in regret after they are gone….I do not want to live that way anymore… I want to love those in my life with all that I have and I want them to know how much they are cherished and what an impact they have had on me as a person. There are just those certain people that just leave you better than when they found you and she was one of those people in my life….I say mother in law but she was not just that to me, she was my second momma and a HUGE part of my life for 22 years…She never judged me, always accepted me and did so much for me…She raised her son to be the man he is today….The husband, the father and the friend that so many people love and respect. He is my life and my world and he is in so many ways like his mother….Thank you Momma for being you and for always loving me even when I did not deserve that love. I honor your birthday today because I honor you…Love you always.

Easter Egg Coloring fun~

April 16, 2012

Easter is always fun for the kids! This year we got to coloring eggs a bit late but better late than never! My son was really missing his buddy Aaron this year…One of our best Easters was when Aaron came over and helped color eggs! We really miss him and had lots of memories of him to keep us smiling this year….Great times with family and good friends!

My son wrote this on the computer, before we started coloring eggs…..

Everyday Life~

April 16, 2012


This is my my typical Saturday! The little things you never think to capture that mean the most….I love the comfort of knowing hubby is in the garage doing what he loves to do…..He has made breakfast for the kids and headed out to work on his bike, his friends bike, or anything that pertains to bikes! My kids are on the computer, playing, eating, leaving things all over the house….I’m usually running around trying to clean up the messes….This Saturday I decided that instead of cleaning up, I would capture the day….As a photographer I judge my photographs to the point of missing the moment…I have promised myself to not do that anymore….To capture the crazy, the quiet, the silly, the magical times that I see around my home and in my kids everyday! No matter what the surroundings look like, if they have dirt on their face, if the house is dirty or the picture is out of focus….The memories will be ones that my kids will one day cherish and look back on with joy…..

Baptism with smiles~

April 11, 2011

My son was baptised yesterday and it was AWESOME! Brought tears to my eyes to see him accept Jesus into his heart and come up out of that water! It was so sweet! He was to short to sit on the step, and not go under the water, so Pastor Mitch let him sit on his lap. Was just amazing. I want to thank his youth Pastor Simone.  Simone is so awesome with all the youth! Pastor Verna , Pastor Mitch and Pastor Dana. I could not belong to a more loving church than Soul Harvest Worship Center!  A great new memory for our family!
