Hurray! Snow!

We finally got a really good snow.  Well, we had a decent one before, but last weekend we got about 10 inches!!  It was all powdery, so not good for fort or snowman building, but great for sledding.  Since it happened on the weekend, my husband was home.  I was able to escape the house and go for a snowy walk all by myself, which of course meant I brought along my camera, and this is what I got.  I wish it had been a wetter snow, as they tend to be a bit more picturesque, but you can see how hard it was snowing from these.

Best Face of 2014 - I Heart Faces Challenge

I am entering the I Heart Faces Photo challenge.  The theme is "Best Face of 2014."  This is from July, when my son was born.  My five year old daughter (one of his three sisters) is holding him, and she loves him so.

My Boys

I still can't believe I get to say "my boys."  Has it really been almost 3 months since my son was born?  The time is flying by.

I feel I need to make a comment about the first picture, since my husband pointed out it looks like he is suffocating our little boy. He isn't. My husband is only holding the pacifier.

Just a quick post.  I couldn't wait for the local carnival to come just so I could take some pictures like this. Having tired children and a fussy baby meant I had to take my pictures fast.  This is what I got.

And just because I can't resist my newest little man, here's a picture of my happy prince.  photo Thomas14wm_zps64fb05c6.jpg

I did it!

Whew, that was a long pregnancy.  Well, it was actually the average amount of time, but it felt long.  I was exhausted and suffered serious pregnancy brain, which caused my creative juices to pretty much disappear.  Also, being as huge as I was made it difficult to get in good positions for photography, and I couldn't move very fast to capture moments that disappear in the blink of an eye. 

That being said, my creative juices are back and here is my first son!

His older sisters absolutely adore him and ask to hold him all the time. I need to get a picture of them surrounding baby boy. But for now, I leave you this one.  photo Thomas03vertical_zps467f637a.jpg
