pumpkin head



This image of my father brings totally new meaning to the term we toss around the house on a regular basis…’pumpkin head’.  Apparently, he forgot it was dress-up day at work so as Home Depot’s master gardener, he ingeniously turned a pumpkin into his costume.  It certainly takes a unique individual to stick your noggin’ […]

My favorite quote from our pre-pubescent son on our fall break trip to Chicago.  “Look, Briggs!  Isn’t that a neat marble building?” “Do you think I don’t know my rocks and minerals?  That is a granite building, Mom!” Sweet…I am so looking forward to his teen years.  I can be assured though his will be […]

I am fairly certain my pediatrician established the standard operating procedure of scheduling no more than two sibling visits at a time because of my brood.  For it was only two and a half years ago that I took all four kids in to get vaccinated duing the same visit for various shots.  All I can remember […]

new moon



I knew I was one of those crazy, middle-aged mothers that loves the Twilight series when my son came to me and said, “Look mom, I have Edward hair!”  I have to admit I thought he looked irresistably-cute.  So some of my friends…the other crazy, middle-aged moms…are purchasing advanced tickets to New Moon at midnight on […]

I could hardly believe my ears when Gage asked if he could help me clean the kitchen yesterday, especially coming after the trio assisted folding laundry. Definitely a change I noticed immediately after they started Montessori. Bu don’t get jealous just yet. I exuberantly replied, “Of course, you can clean the house, Gage!” The trio […]

lunch options



I knew I was running low on groceries when the only thing I could fill my children’s lunch boxes with was: 1) a plastic bowl and spoon, 2) a Ziploc of Cheerios, 3) a cup of milk, 4) a yogurt, and 5) some M&Ms. Time to hit the aisles! Who wants to bet I hear […]

marriage



One of the most inspiring aspects to owning a photography company is being an intimate part of a bride and groom’s wedding day.  As the photographers, we get the privilege of being behind the scenes.  We are given the honor of following the bride all day long to capture the event as it naturally unfolds […]

michael lives on



Briggs discovered Michael Jackson’s music literally two days before he passed this summer. Since then we rarely listened to anything else. It is as if I am reliving my teen years all over again. In fact, Briggs even has a small poster of Michael in his bedroom (a young, handsome Michael, pre-plastic). The Michael Jackson […]
