Lately I have been spending all my free time on my photography business, which now that I say means I don't really have any "free" time I suppose, and it is definitely showing in my attitude today, so I decided that well the kids are napping....well one of them...the other... Continue reading

Five years ago on August 20th David and I started our adventure of parenthood and boy what a start it was! I have told this story many times and to this day it still makes me say a little prayer thanking God for the miracle he bestowed on us that... Continue reading

It has been months since I have pulled together a 10 on 10. Sad thing is is that many months I have taken pics but just haven't gotten them posted. Maybe I should do a big back blog of 10s. Anyhow I finally got one done and as uneventful as... Continue reading

As we got closer to Pfeiffers birth, I had mentioned a few times that I wanted to get Fletcher potty trained soon, but as most people might suspect, I have very opinionated friends that told me to wait six more months to try. Of course anyone that really knows me... Continue reading

So our newest addition, Pfeiffer Lou, is two months old already. Crazy huh? I really can not believe it is true. I never made a one month post so she can't really be two months....right? Fine two months it is and a great two months it has been. Our little... Continue reading

So we have been waiting for Fletcher to show some potty training interest for a while now, and have spent many an hour sitting on his "lightening Mcqueen" Potty with no results only to have him stand up and pee on the floor so proudly saying "mommy I peed!" So... Continue reading

As mentioned in earlier posts, Finley was so convinced we were having a girl that I really think that she willed it to happen! I love seeing the love and adoration she has for her baby sister already, and at the same time worry as to what kind of trouble... Continue reading

As most everyone knows, we are about to have our third baby, and boy did it sneak up on me! It is amazing how when you are pregnant with your first your mind works like this "baby, baby, baby....baby nursery, baby cloths, baby, baby, baby", your second it is like... Continue reading

As much as I love my life, I struggle at times being a farm wife. Not seeing my hubby for days other than for a few short tired hours in the evening, taking on all the responsibility of the household 6-8 months out of the year, and still having to... Continue reading

Ever since someone hit the 2 button a couple of weeks ago, Fletcher has excersiced his royal 2-ness every chance he gets. This particular evening he thought that by "hiding" in this basket, he could avoid getting his pajamas on. Of coarse I couldn't tell if he was more mad... Continue reading

For Christmas I got David, my husband, and my brother remote control helicopters, and since that day, both kids have worked every angle to get their hands on it. So the other evening, after Fletcher was in bed, Finley's big opportunity came to prove herself as a co-pilot. It was... Continue reading

My challenge for week 1 of my 52 week photo project is to post a picture reflecting my resolution or resolutions for this year. Even though I have many, I think this one is important in the fact that I find myself to be a better mom, wife, nurse, and... Continue reading

Great Post Vicki. Love seeing all your pics and how big your little man is getting. Didn't realize that I use to babysit your hubby. Crazy huh? Probably shouldn't admit that, kind of ages me! Jen

I am not sure about everyone else, but when I think of fall the first thing that comes to mind is bright leaves. Pumpkin pie is a close second though! Because I am a hunting widow right now, my babies stayed at Bruce and Betty's (adopted grandparents) house this weekend... Continue reading

After waking up this morning to fog and rain, I finally admitted that fall was here. Don't get me wrong, I love fall. It's just that we really never had a summer....did we? I do love every season though. David always laughs at me because when each season comes along... Continue reading
