i'm turning into a butterfly

As I was tucking Kolby into bed tonight, one of my bones cracked. Kolby said, "What was that?" I said, "My bones cracked because I'm getting old." He said, in all seriousness, "Maybe you're just turning into a butterfly!"

Wonder what he thinks I've been up until now?

happy mother's day to me...

When the boys got home from school I told them that I was ready for my 
Mother's Day gift from them. 

All I wanted was a picture of my boys.

You would have thought I'd asked them to go to school through the Summer vacation. 

They whined, they tried to find excuses, they fought the whole way to the scene, and then they cried about the sun being in their eyes and the stickers they had in their shoes. 

Between exclamations of "He's TOUCHING me!" and "Your breath stinks," I actually caught a couple of shots I liked and I was thinking this was working out okay and I was going to get my Mother's Day gift after all.

...and then my camera's battery died.


We were just warming up...these shots weren't even good ones. They were looking right at the sun!

I take hundreds of pictures of people.

My battery has NEVER died. 


Happy Mother's Day to me...

bad news, good news

Bad news...leukemia.

Good news...cousins.

Spring Delights

Kolby and I went searching today for Spring delights.

We found the most amazing sight...

What could be cuter than an apple orchard full of deer?!

A little boy on an old abandoned train track is a pretty cute sight too...
I LOVE you, Spring!!
