joel



One of Tim’s best friends, Joel Peigh, lost his short battle with cancer this past week.  We will forever be touched by Joel’s enormous sense of humor, matter-of-factness, and unwavering support.  He was such a tremendous help to me while Tim was deployed.  I will never forget his acts of kindness.   To learn more about […]

heavy influence



I have realized recently what a significant influence I have on my children…and maybe not all that productive.   Here are two recent examples: BRIDES, WEDDINGS, GOWNS AND RINGS We <Nathaniel Edmunds Photography> recently hired an office assistant.  She is a young gal, Nicole, hoping to enter into the photography business at some point.  The twins are all […]

thirteen years



We hit thirteen years of marriage today!  And, wouldn’t you know it, we both forgot.  Thank goodness for joint absent-mindedness.   I am not offended in the least…remember I got my weekend of peace.  The aura is still wavering over my head.

THREE (thank goodness)



The twins turned three…thank goodness!  I am hoping this new age of maturity brings along less destruction. Can I even hope for less drama? I doubt it. They sure are fun though. They are a giant ball of personality…a mixture of aggression, sweetness, humor and inquisition. It goes without saying but I will anyway…our lives […]

911-1111



Yes it is true.  We have had yet another brush with THE LAW.  Apparently Briggs didn’t realize that when he dialed 911-1111, 911 is actually dipatched.  He didn’t realize the phone was actually on so a short while later, the police show up. The babysitter was at a loss as to what was even happening.  When […]

like father like son



It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if Gage wound up shooting in the Governor’s Twenty someday.  The kid is just like his dad.  This image was printed in the Madison Courier this past weekend at the Regatta Boat Races.
