Way Back When-esday

Cheryl over at Twinfatuation hosts this one. Go on over to see who else is playing – and join in too!

In honor of my 1000th post yesterday, I’m using the very first picture I put up on my blog. It took me a few posts to get comfortable putting pictures of my kids up…and to remember to TAKE pictures. I’ve obviously gotten over both of those things 😉

Too big

Burke in Logan's Swing - June 2008

Friday’s Fotos: Swinging, Praying, and Cooking

The kids decided that all 3 of them would fit on this swing…

Sharing the Swing

…and it worked! (For a little while…)


When I pulled up to our town’s ATM, I noticed a little critter attached to the side of it.

Praying Mantis

(Good thing no one was behind me in line…)


I made a double batch of Shepherd’s Pie in my new Calphalon 5 QT Dutch Oven!! Yum. 🙂

(It was awesome to brown the meat and then not have to transfer it to a casserole dish!)

Baby Picture Sundays

This week’s theme is Abundance. I figure an abundance of snow qualifies, so here you go…we played in the snow yesterday!

We have two snow angels, one who likes to swing no matter what the weather is, and some snow art. 🙂

Burke's Snow Art: Bird

And of course, the hot chocolate when we came back inside 🙂

Debi hosts the Baby Picture Sundays. Hop on over there to see who’s playing, and join in too!

Catching up with Pictures

I’ve been bad about getting pictures off my camera in a timely fashion to share with you all. Here are some random pictures from the past oh, month or so.

I was really proud of my chicken pot pie – first time I attempted to make it. Next time it’ll taste even better…

Poor Logan SOOOO wanted to play too…



I’m not sure WHAT was going on here…

What's Wrong With This Picture?

"What do you mean it's on my elbows?"


thought I used blue and red

"I thought I used red and blue..."

I FINALLY took some pictures of the kids swinging. And Logan’s baby swing came in to complete the package. Fun! (Although, Burke and Maggie fight over Logan’s swing…)

Push me!

"Push me!"



Perhaps it’s Time

…for a bigger swing!!

Too big

Burke decided to try out Logan’s swing. You KNOW you’re too big when you can reach all of the controls yourself. LOL
