Theme Thursday - Flowering

The first round of our flowers have come and gone and I anxiously await the second. The first was beautiful with our cherry tree, tulips and other bulbs. But the second round is my favorite. My lily's and Southern Magnolia. So as I am patiently awaiting the return of the flowers, here's some shots from the first round.

Theme Thursday - Aged

Ok I totally cheated this week. I would have loved to been able to take the kids to a beautiful historic landmark and take some great shots but I didn't find the time to fit it into my schedule. Maybe someday soon cause I love this idea. So instead I took a picture of the oldest thing I could think of around my house.

This is a 1974 Harley Davidson three-wheel Golf Cart. We acquired it (meaning it was free) from a friend of a friend with every intention of fixing it up so it can run again. It needs a lot of work. But as we are finding out, there is quite a following for these things. Maybe we will make it all spiffy and sell it...or maybe not.


Here's a front view as it sits in my garage. As you can see it used to belong to a Larry and Carol, not sure who they are. Its in pretty bad shape. Needs some body work, engine work, tires, seats...wait, did I say this was a good idea?

The kids like to sit on it and pretend it works.

Close up of the broken seat. Guess we need a new one.

Anyway, when its all said and done we do hope to get some use out of having a Golf Cart around. But will it look like this when its done, doubtful!

Happy 1st Birthday and Weekly Winners

I have to first wish my baby girl a big Happy Birthday. Today she is 1. I cannot believe how fast a year has gone. It seems like just yesterday I was scared to bring a third baby into our house and I wasn't sure how I was going to deal with not having a third arm to hold her. Now it would not be home without her with us. We had a beautiful day and a wonderful party. I promise to post some pics of my big girl tomorrow.

Haiku Friday - The 1 Year Old Curse?

Haiku Friday

Got that dreaded call
again to come pick up V
she has a fever

and she was acting tired
so off to get her

I want to add a little commentary to this week's Ku. When I got V home I used my temporal thermo and I got too got 102.something on one side and 104.3 on the other. Why I get different readings I will never know. I gave her some motrin and she slept for a few. She woke happier and played for a little bit until the fever started creeping back up. When my hubby came home she was sleeping in my arms some and we decided to check her again, 105.7! Wow, never had I seen such a high reading. We called our Pedi and they told us to undress her and rub her down with some cold towels and give her more medicine. We also used the rectal thermo and that reading was 104.1. But the Pedi told us that they didn't need to see her as long as she was responsive. She ate dinner and went to bed. By 10:00 pm we decided to give her some more meds and woke her up. Fever was still 104 but she was sleeping it off. Luckily this morning its way down to 99.

My reason for posting this is cause I think there is a '1 Year Old Curse' which has struck all my kids when they turn 1. All of them were sick/teething/unhappy for their first birthdays. Miss V's big day is Sunday. Looks like since she caught this curse a little earlier than the other two she may not be a cranky mess come Sunday but who knows. Turning 1 must be tough for their little bodies and as parents we make a huge deal about this first bday that they could care less about. :)

Anyone else's kids get struck by the 1 Year Old Curse?

Theme Thursday - Sun

This week was a challenge for me, and not cause it has been raining for days here, cause I did manage to get a few hours of sunny weather mid week. But because the shots didn't turn out as I'd hoped. I always have this grand plan when I set up a shoot in my head (do you ever do that?) and it never works out the way I think. I love the shots of 'glowing' sunny hair so that's what I tried. Unfortunately I didn't estimate how hard it would be to get the lighting right on the face and the get focus perfect. But I will continue to practice practice. Anyway, here are my girls playing outside in the new and improved play area.

Skin fix, small


And here's another one for fun:
