10/365 Kansas Sunset

After a cold winter storm, the sunset blazed through the Kansas sky in shades of pink and purple. GORGEOUS!


This photo captured the mood in my house. We have been snowed in since Wednesday night, cabin fever, no school, and these teenagers are squirrly! They are acting nutty, but we are having fun even though we are snowed in! We have even enjoyed watching the squirrels as the scatter about outside!

1st photo

I took out the new Rebel and here was the first photo I took with it.

Here comes the sun

Snow Day, school is closed due to the strong winds and the road conditions. Looking out the window in the morning, I see the sun shining through after the snow storm.

6/365 Favorite Hat

This is my daughter's favorite hat! She wears it all the time. Did you have a sock monkey as a child? I did! And now we have commissioned Aunt Maxine to make us some sock monkeys! We are bringing them back!

Happy Birthday

Today is my birthday. I am never too old to enjoy the day with my mom and my dad, my husband and kids! Hanna and Carlye greeted me with a poster on the refrigerator, the lovely crown and a button to wear. We all went to Manhattan to eat at Houlihan's and go to the movie. Hanna, Carlye and I saw "It's Complicated!" LOVED IT! and Moot and the Men watched "Sherlock Holmes." I love days like today with my family! My in-laws stopped by when we got home to wish me a happy birthday. I feel so blessed to have such a great family and I LOVE THEM ALL!

Here is my photo of Niece Phoebe in her beautiful red dress!

Blue Moon

Interestingly enough, the first day of the new decade is on a full moon. Not only a full moon, but the second full moon of the month which made the new year arrive during a Blue Moon. This is a photo of the actual moon in Kansas around midnight. The photo has been embellished using picnk.
