True Love: The feeling when you first look in your child's eyes, the tiny little hand gripping your finger, and you can't imagine your life without him or her.

Back to the Backyard

Winter still has a tight grip on us, here in Ohio.
I seriously hate winter. 
Always have.
But we've been teased a couple days this week.
So I've been trying to get the kids outside whenever I can.
Lordy, they've had some serious cabin fever!!
So, here are some random pictures over the past week, in no particular order.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!!
And we'll be bundling up, getting ready for another 2-3 inches of snow.

School Pictures

It's an annual tradition.
In our school system, a bi-annual tradition.
Our kiddo gets pictures taken in the fall & spring.
And every time, I'm thoroughly disappointed.
This year, I refused to spend one penny on those God-awful, horrible things passing for pictures.
They were out of focus.
And they somehow made my daughter look ugly.
And my daughter IS NOT ugly! 

So, what's a photography-loving mama to do?? 
Take my own school pictures!! 

Granted, the lighting isn't the best - indoors without a flash.
But they're a heck of a lot better than the school's options!! 
Plus, it's only 1st grade... I'm sure she'll forgive me later on for my lack of lighting skills.

Since I already had the camera out & the background up, I grabbed Milo & made him put on some suspenders that he hated.
He immediately started taking them off.

I thought they were cute, but apparently Milo thought differently.

So, I think I'm going to just order some of these pictures & give them out instead of those awful generic school ones!
On to new (& better) traditions!!
