Originally I had set out to take pictures of the mulberries on this tree (bush?) but when the bokeh caught my eye, I just had to try to capture that instead!

Specs: 35mm lens, ISO 400, F 3.2, 1/40, slightly lightened and sharpened in Photoshop Elements 6.0

Me: I have a headache, boys.

Tyler: I think it’s because you didn’t go to Sonic yet.

Smart kid;)

I was discussing my grocery list with Chase and showing him the things I thought he’d more interested in when he said “But Mommy, I want asparaguses.” So I showed him that’s on sale too and we’d buy some and he clapped and ran into the living room yelling “Mommy’s buying asparaguses!”


Last night was a rough bedtime for Jackson. Nick told him that when he (Jackson) could stay in bed and be quiet for just 2 minutes he would come in and cuddle him (put a sheet on him). Finally two minutes went by and Nick went into the boys’ room only to find Jackson already covered up. Chase piped up from his bed “Daddy, you don’t need to cuddle Jackson. I did it for you.” Guess he got tired of his brother’s melt down!

Yep, that’s my classy kid, uh, watering the mulberry bush.

This morning Lily rolled over from back to front! I managed to catch it on video and will post it tomorrow along with a “Snapshots of Life” post.

    Jen - I’m not even going to pretend that I know which kid the waterer is. But I can tell you that I have a similar pic of Caleb; his aunt took it and he was about 5yo at the time. Now he thinks it’s embarrassing. :)ReplyCancel
