Day Three Hundred Thirty One


She’s going back to school. He seems to know this. She’s ready for Christmas break. I’m so dead for posting this. It looks like when she was four.

Day Three Hundred Thirty


I found him like this, watching “Old Yeller”,

In Thanksgiving weekend afterglow.

Day Three Hundred Twenty Nine







Day Three Hundred Twenty Eight


I want to remember this day.

I woke up at four a.m. and sat in the big chair, thinking about how absolutely sweet it is to take time to be thankful in the dark with my college daughter, healthy family,  and our priceless friends sleeping under our roof.

In the light of the loneliness and uncertainty (and, yes, blessing) of the past two years, this moment and this day were amazingly... mmm!



Thankful Gallahers

Crazy Thanks

Day Three Hundred Twenty Seven


Another cheat because today was much to busy preparing for Thanksgiving dinner and the arrival of my daughter and our life-long friends to take any pictures. SO!

These are from tomorrow...


Sledding Hill


Day Three Hundred Twenty Six


Just some from my session a little more than a week ago...

It’s what I’m doing!

If your name is Lois, look away!

The first Christmas decorations...

Okay. I’m officially in the mood for this!

Day Three Hundred Twenty Three



(yes, already)


Day Three Hundred Twenty Two


As we head into next week where the smell of freshly baked rolls, turkey and cranberries meet with exhaustion, resulting in the loss of all common sense, I want to remind myself that I love these shorts and that my goal is to wear them comfortably next Summer...

Winter Reminder

Day Three Hundred Twenty One


Scrambling to fill my quota as I prepare for out of town guests for Thanksgiving…

I can’t WAIT!

Lead Me...

Day Three Hundred Twenty


There’s not much that two buddies who are homeschooled would rather do than have a sleepover. Good times.


Day Three Hundred Nineteen


If you’ve ever transferred all your photo files from your computer’s drive to one of these, particularly if good organization of these files came to you late in the game…

Then you know what this day has been like for me.



Day Three Hundred Eighteen


I did a practice session this weekend. I had fun shooting my own kids and some scenery while we waited for the “clients” to show up.

Day Three Hundred Seventeen

This is a re-edit.
It's important to me that I find my own style, and when I processed this before, I had other voices in my head.
I know that I would like the lighting to be less flat, but I wanted to recompose this back to how I originally had it...and trust myself to do it my way.

(wow... he's much more pale here than in Lightroom. Good to know)

Day Three Hundred Sixteen

I'm not lazy. I'm conserving my energy for dinner!


Day Three Hundred Fifteen

November Skies

These were all taken within five minutes of each other on my morning walk...

Day Three Hundred Eleven

Beautiful Girl...


Day Three Hundred Ten

Have you had a Kinder bar?

You should. They're from Germany.

When I was 19, I found these when I visited Germany.

My oldest daughter found them when a friend of hers brought some back from a trip to Germany.
Last year, we found them at World Market.

My son was promised this one upon completion of his daily school work.
I assured him that it was safe until then. I had some help protecting it...


Day Three Hundred Nine

Skittles War

It's simple, really.
Two candies, under pressure. The last one standing (uncrushed) moves on to the next round...

She can't think of a better way to eat a bag of Skittles.


Day Three Hundred Eight

I tried a new recipe...

I'm not sure he's convinced!

Day Three Hundred Seven

I think it would be fun to do a full-on "alphabet project" but for now, I am just getting them when I see something that looks like an "unintentional" letter.
Then I'll make the different images into our name.

These are "c"s...

I haven't decided which I like better.


Day Three Hundred Six

So... it's after Halloween and there is still a bunch of candy around the hose.
Bruno's hoping to get a nibble (gulp) of B's "after lunch Tootsie Roll"

Day Three Hundred Five

This just about sums it up...

I love the way he’s looking at her...
