Morning Light

She's the first one up in the mornings.

And, she's usually happy about that!


My little Morning Light . . . oh, how I love you!

I've never seen anything like this little rainbow around the sun.

Have you?

Toys Inspirational Challenge

Found a new photo blog, and thought I'd join in on the fun this week.

This weeks challenge is all about photographing toys, and although I don't think mine are half as cool as the ones they blogged about on their blog, this project was still fun to do!


I just love Little People. My kids have played with them since they were tiny babies, and I'm sure their appeal will continue to last.

If you'd like to join in the fun, or just want to check out a great photography resource blog, Go check out this blog:

There are seven million." ~Walt Streightiff


Thought this was fitting.

Have a great day!

Just waiting for this to bloom. . .


Peonies have become my favorite flowers of all time.

Shortsleeves & Sunshine

Spring is here!

I love that we get to spend the evenings outside.


Clearly, I'm not the only one!

Says Who?

Who ever said dandelions were weeds, anyway?

Clearly they just couldn't appreciate the beauty of a yard speckled with small yellow flowers.

Fortunately for you (and for the viewing pleasure of my neighbors) . . . . I can.


Enjoy your week!

Rockin' the Cons

Came home from Target with these little cuties . . .


Ok, Ok . . . call me a girl, but I just love shoes - especially miniature versions of the real deal, and I just couldn't resist.

Hope you had a lovely weekend.

Each kiddo gets a turn.


But really, it's the teamwork that is the most fun to watch.

Have a beautiful weekend!

The Easter eggs were a treat . . .


because the eggs had candy in them rather than runny yolks.

The Zhu-Zhu pets that the Easter Bunny left in their baskets were a hit . . .


because the kids could play with them and cuddle them.

The kids, and I and Dirck had a great day together. Beautiful weather. Beautiful babies. Beautiful day.


What a wonderful way to spend an Easter Sunday!

They may never look this nice again. . .

or be this squeaky clean again. . .

or kiss each other ever again.


Here's proof that they clean up nicely and can act like they love each other at times.

Must have been the Spirit of Easter!

Don't think that there is

one second

of one minute

of one hour

of one day

that rushes by


that I'm not completely thankful.

Easter Bonnets

A couple of special kiddos got an Easter package from their Nana.

Included were a few Easter hats.

Which my little lady loved . . .


As did her big brother!


In his defense, he did tell me that "cowboys wear hats on their horses."

Here's to cute little cowboys with ruffly cowboy hats with pink ribbons!

Happy Easter!

Somewhere between being a toddler and becoming a boy.

Somewhere between needing my help, and wanting to do everything himself.




That's where you'll find him.

Their World

Those things that seem so small. . .


and so tiny . . .


are a REALLY big deal . . .


in THEIR world.


I love to watch my babies get lost in their toys and pretend worlds.

Hope you are having a magical kind of day.

A Day At The Spa

Welcome to the Munchkin Spa.

Let me take your hat. Let's start with a little scalp stimulation . . . you'll love it.


How about a massage? Does that make you feel better?


Now you need a shampoo, style and blow-out. You are looking amazing.


What about a Manicure? We almost forgot how important it is for your claws to be neatly maintained.


No trip to the spa would be complete without a proper pedicure. Oh, your piggies are looking fantastic!


The satisfied customer . . . perfectly primped.


Thanks for coming the the Munchkin Spa. Come back again real soon!
