In Honor of my Dad

11 Jun

I’m a big fan of webcomics.  Especially the ones that I can read in my reader (which – BRILLIANT idea).  Anyways, I read this one today.  From Real Life Comics, which, if you haven’t read it before, takes real life happenings, adds a bit of the fantasy for randomness and stirs in some humor.  It’s hilarious.

But this?  This could have been the Real Life in my life.  With my dad.  Who I love dearly.  But he makes me giggle….

I love you, daddy. SO MUCH.

Lazy Friday

4 Jun

Today is one of those days.  You know the kind, where all you want to do is curl up on the couch under a blanket with a dog or two on your feet with a good book and a cup of tea.  Or whole pot.

Where a fire in the fireplace sounds like a lovely idea, even though it isn’t THAT cold.

Any of these would be wonderful.  Instead, I’m at work making money.  Listening to the rain pound on the roof, dreaming of warm soup.

Wishing I could have stayed here this morning:

Sleepy Snuggles

We’ve also had great luck moving her to her own crib, as you can see.

Hope your weekend is wonderful and full of great weather!

You Capture – Motion

13 Aug

Another week of next to no time.  It was difficult to edit photos without being able to be home.  This past week I wish I had a laptop more than ever!

But I did get some photos that capture motion.  No lovely blur, but that’s okay.

My dad with his granddaughter. She was wriggling so hard and almost projected herself out of his arms.

Sippy Cup time!  She would get so excited for the sippy cup that her whole body would be in motion.

A horrible photo, but the deer I saw were in motion after they stopped being scared....climbed up this steep dropoff.

I think I’m caught up in the backlog of things, and barring any acts of God, may be able to finish all the projects I have….including Bridal Shower cupcakes!

Through the Lens Thursday – Camping

30 Jul

Over the second weekend in July we went down to Southern Oregon to meet up with my sister and her family.  They live in Arizona, so we only see them once or twice a year if we are lucky.  I miss them so much and revel in every moment we get to spend time with them.

As a family, we are not the tent camping type of people.  My father was attacked by a bear in his tent with his brother and sister as a child, and so has always had a fear of tent camping.  So this is how we ride:

At least, my parents do.  And we camp on their floor.  It’s wonderful, especially with a young baby.  I love it!

We also had a chance to take some fun photos, Mr. Soup and I.  Here is a look through our lens!

Hi Baby!

Pensive.

Pensive.

The shadow is natural.  I could not get it lighter without making it look horrible.  It almost looks as if Mr. Soup is about ready to fight some dark creature barehanded while holding Baby Soup.  I love it.
