Hi Stephanie! I found you through SC and have been enjoying reading your blog for a few years now...can't remember when I first became a "lurker"! You have always been an inspiration to me, really! :) Not to mention the fun I have playing (and getting beaten!) WWF with you! :) I, too, feel as though we've met in person. Kind of weird feeling this way but I guess that what blogs to to their readers! :) You are such a great role model and mother to four precious little girls! Oh, and not to mention, a wonderful supportive wife to J! :) Thanks for all your great blog posts and KEEP THEM COMING! :)

I am going to try to be better about blogging on a regular basis this year...wish me luck! :) I love January because it makes me want to start "fresh" with all my projects that have been "stirring around" inside my brain throughout the previous year. One thing I am trying become more experienced with and feel more comfortable using is PSE(Photoshop Elements). Yesterday Austin came to my rescue and helped me get over a hurdle with a project I was working on. Sometimes it takes baby steps for me to get anywhere! :) So, here is what I was... Continue reading

Daylight savings happened overnight last night so we all slept in! What a great way to start a Sunday! :) I had to capture this photo (using my cell phone) this morning...a perfect image of Greg and Taylor and their "little visit" at the great room window this morning. Love moments like these! :) Then, a little while later, Nuzzle was ready to come inside after doing his "once around" the house after breakfast. I couldn't help but snap this photo (through the back storm door) (again with my cell phone!) because he had no clue he was carrying a... Continue reading

Wow, to think my grandmother would be 115 years old today...amazing! She was a phenomenal woman, one who I have always respected my entire life. Gammy in Sanibel Island, FL - her favorite winter "retreat"... This photo is of me with Gammy Yeomans on the day of my Gingerbread Nursery School Graduation in Watertown, WI. I was so proud to have her there with me and the rest of my family. :) Happy Birthday, Gammy! I love you! :) Continue reading

Happy Wednesday! Hard to believe it's really Spring with the way the weather is today! Typical Wisconsin in the Springtime! Here are some photos from today. Kind of a lazy day for Nuzzle but others accomplished things around here! :) I scrapbooked, Taylor got her hair colored and Austin played on his laptop and XBOX 360. Greg was busy at work, anticipating the next two days off! :) I skipped Day #3 of my KP's Sketches class because I had these great photos of my sister and Taylor from Thanksgiving that I wanted to use together. So here's Day #4:... Continue reading

Well, the lonnnng awaited Spring Break has FINALLY ARRIVED! :) Taylor and Austin have been so patiently waiting fro this time of their school year ... even though we are not going away. While Greg was golfing with friends after work, the kids and I spent some time in the backyard taking photos at almost sunset. I have discovered, even though been told by many before, that this HAS to be the best time of the day for a photo opportunity! :) I can't wait take more photos at this time of day, or at dawn, for that matter! :)...

I've spent the past 24 hours almost completely, well NOT REALLY!, indulged in my love for scrapbooking. Why you may ask? Well, because I am in the midst of a twelve day class with some of my favorite scrapbooking women from Studio Calico lead by this fantastic woman, Kelly Purkey. Everyday I will be working my hardest to complete a new scrapbook page based on a sketch provided by Kelly. So, here is my attempt at "Day One" - I probably will continue to post these pages a day late because the lighting is better. KP's Sketch class - Day... Continue reading

I am so excited to see signs of Spring popping up all over our yard. I missed taking a picture of a robin but did manage to get some of my "early arrivals" that I can count on every Spring. :) Here they are! Enjoy! Pasque Flower (always blooms around Easter) Daffodils getting ready to pop! Service Berry beginning to bud... Irises Ornamental grasses showing signs of life. Bleeding Heart ... my "monster-sized" plant that blooms like crazy! Today the weather is more late winterish...yuck. At least we know this won't last and the sun will be out tomorrow! :)...

It's hard to believe it was 15 years ago this coming May that my parents bought us our first Weber gas grill - a "housewarming gift" when we moved in to our first house in Germantown. We decided to "retire" this grill and buy a new one after seeing how much it would cost to "update" it with all the replacement parts needed. So, yesterday morning, this arrived on our back patio... I neglected to take a picture of the first meal we grilled on it last night. The kids and I christened it with cheeseburgers, while Greg was out... Continue reading

I made this mosaic using some photos from 2009. It was fun looking back and remembering when and where the photos were taken. I am looking forward to doing more of this with my photos from 2010! Thanks for letting me share! :) -Ann Continue reading

OK...I admit, being an iPhoto user, I am totally stumped by the mosaic feature, Stephanie. That's not part of iPhoto is it? How do I do what you did? I am am total copycat!! :)
