It is great watching my two girls be great sisters and great friends.
I was attempting to get some good pictures of the girls in the dresses that I made for them.Â However, even with the flash they were in too much shade.Â I will have to try again.Â But, this picture captured what Adrian thought of it.
My kids love to find bird eggs.Â A few weeks ago we climbed a ladder to look at the Robin Eggs in our Japenese Maple Tree. Today, Grandpa showed us the new baby robins who live on the ledge at the side of his house.
Congratulations Josh and Angie!
Your wedding was beautiful.Â Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day!
God has blessed me very richly. No other job could give me the joy of being Momma.
For Mother’s Day, we went camping. It was cold and rainy part of the time, but we had such a fun time together as family. More picture to follow.
Today we went to check on our bluebird babies.Â Three of the four eggs have hatched.Â It was so neat!Â Mark took the picture of the hungry babies.
Adrian kept asking if we saw “Scouts” while we were out.Â I said that I did not see any and he insisted “yes, you DID.”Â He saw this picture of the Tree Swallow watching and said “see, there’s the Scout Bird”.Â I guess I did see some Scouts today.
This picture of Audrey and her friend Ianna, taken on Easter, may be one of my top 10 favorite pictures for the year.
Adrian asked if he could have a candy cane for snack today.Â I forgot where I put them and said yes.Â Knowing where they were, Adrian helped himself to one and then got some to share.
I remembered where the candy was “hidden” in time to get a picture and help Adrian down because his hands (and mouth) were full holding the candy.
I promised my children that we could go and look for Bluebird eggs.Â They were shown some the other day, and wanted me to see them also.Â They were hoping to find some eggs and some baby birds.Â We found some eggs but most of the boxes were empty.
However, we had fun watching the birds “play” in empty birdhouses.Â We were not “attacked” by them this time either, but a couple of Tree Swallows put on a wonderful show for us trying to get us to leave.
I read that Eastern Bluebirds incubate their eggs for about 12 days. The babies stay in the nest for about two weeks. So, if we have the chance to return in the next few weeks, we may see some newly hatched birds. That would be exciting!
These pictures are of Tree Swallows. They like to live near Bluebirds and often use Bluebird nests for their nests. They live well near each other.
Yesterday I had the all kids pose for me in my favorite spring spot.
Today, I “went to school” via internet and refreshed my memory on how to change color photos to sepia.Â I need a little practice, but I like how these turned out.
Enjoy the newest pictures of all the kids.
