Happy Birthday!

My son had his B-day this last week. We did a construction theme birthday. It was so fun. Everything fit the theme right down to the cake. The boys got to build a ficture frame from tongue depressors and paint it. I took their group photo and we are going to insert it in the frames and return them with a picture in it with the thank yous. They built their own hot dogs with "red paint", "yellow paint", "white paint" (ketchup, mustard & mayo). Buns and chips were served in plastic paint trays. It was all so fun. They colored dump truck pictures and built with block, legos and Kinnex. A tool box with candy tools and tool stickers was their party favors & they got to take home their hard hats and safety vests. It was all pretty crazy. Thanks Meegan for helping! I'm glad we're not doing parties every year. The last picture is his treats he took to preschool to share with the class. Although they had nothing to do with the construction theme, I thought they were cute.

Found a new spot

While shooting the other day we found a new spot. This is under our hay shed and has always been covered with hay, but after feeding the horses and cows all winter, a large section of this fence was exposed. We took a minute to snap a few. I think I really like this new backdrop. What do you think?

Tag ... I'm it!

Amanda tagged me and asked me to list 6 things that make me happy! Here's a quick list:
1) Indulging in a good book
2) V Chocolates almond toffee
3) Music
4) Friends
5) Watching my kids have those "aha" moments when they learn something new & it finally clicks.
6) Taking that great picture that captures a moment worth preserving forever.

So now I'm tagging....Kelly, Meegan, Brenda, Jamie and Christie Tag You're It!!!

Explosions in the sky

Yesterday my husband called and said, "Quick you better get your camera and go outside now!" I was so burried in the daily routine and stess from the day, making supper, chasing kids etc... I had not even taken a moment to glance outside. I went quickly and saw the sky exploding with color surrounded by a stark winter chill, the river frozen over. Almost a fire and ice effect. It was truly stunning. I only caught the tail end of its ever changing light show. What a treasured view at the end of a stressful day. God does send us bits of beauty and peace if we will but look up and take notice. Thank you for this moment of tranquility.

Moonlit Night

The other night I caught a glimpse of the full moon looking down our driveway. It really just had a romantic feel for me peeking through the trees. It was extremely cold outside as it has been below zero for some time. I think this picture really captures the icyness we have all been feeling lately. I'm definitely ready for spring.
