“Look, Mommy, I can bake now!”

July 29th, 2012

I taught Brother how to warm up his milk in the microwave and he was SO cute. Now he loves to use it every chance he gets and I just marvel at how big he really is.








The first LDStorymakers Conference in the Midwest!

July 13th, 2012

I recently told you of attending my first LDStorymakers Writers Conference in Provo, UT. Well, they are doing their first conference ever in the Midwest!

Click here for the official website: LDStorymakers Midwest Conference

To help spread the word, they are holding a Show the Love contest for free editing and critiques. Click here for the details: Show the Love

You can also see the new button on my sidebar below.

If you’re able to attend, I would love to hear about it. And if you win the free editing or critiques, I would love to hear about that, too!

Good luck!

028 no shoes black

Holy smokes, I’ve got it! The secret formula for capturing that perfect outdoor shot with three wigglers:

All you need is…

1 tripod
+ 1 remote
+ 1 location 2 min. from home
+ 2 youngest fresh from morning naps
+ 1 van containing kids until Mommy’s done setting everything up
+ 30 sec. of constant snapping til squirming Baby is *really* fed up
– 3 heads from one photo
+ 3 heads from other photos
– 2 bodies from one photo
+ 2 bodies from another photo
– 1 random piece of floating arm
= 1 beautiful family portrait!!

(and 1 pooped Mommy!)

“The name’s Boots. Sir Boots.”
