I made this journal for conference and I put it up on my sharing blog.  Hopefully some of you can use it this conference!

Real Simple Mag Cover

I hope you all had a great St. Patty's Day.. We sure did!  I'll post all about our adventures on my sharing blog (with a link here) later, but I'm so excited about something else I wanted to share now.

I just finished a photography course in San Francisco, which I have been LOVING!!!  I have lots to share about it, but I couldn't wait to share this one.  This was one of our last assignments, and I LOVE how it turned out.  I styled & took the picture, added the text, etc.  It was a fun assignment, and a challenge, and I learned a lot.

St. Patrick's Day Ideas

Last year, we had a 'super-fun' St. Patrick's Day.  I re-posted the blog post I wrote about it on my sharing blog.  I started this blog to give back ideas to the WWW... because of the many, many years I've been taking ideas from it.  Hopefully you can take a look and find something fun to do with your family.

Christmas in March (part 1)

Okay, so I’ve been busy, busy, busy (as always) and blogging has been a lower priority, but I still wanted to share some pictures from December.  There are a lot… but I’m tired of not posting what I want to post, in fear of boring you, so look at what you want and skip what you want.  I’ll never know!  :)  I’m just happy to finally be getting some up here!  AND, since my online journal is about to be integrated with blogger, I’m super motivated to blog more… now I don’t necessarily have to blog, and journal the same events!  How cool is that!?

Beautiful Haylee:


Picking out a Christmas tree:

Mmmm… Christmas pancakes.

Excuse the finger gouges in the gingerbread man pancake (ahem, McKay…)


Decorating the Christmas tree:


Daddy helping McKay decorate:

Just love this picture – Christmas tree lights - long exposure, hand held, motion intentional:


IT SNOWED IN CALIFORNIA!!!!  It really, truly snowed.  I didn’t get up early enough to see it really snowy… it was pretty icy by the time I got up.  But way too cool just the same.

Random picture from December: I found Haylee like this, talking on the phone.  She’s definetely going to need her own ‘line’ (I guess that would be cell phone these days) when she’s a teenager.  Can’t you just see her as a teenager talking on the phone, from this picture?  Too cute.


A fun little story: This is what happens if I don’t pay attention to my children for about ten minutes at a time.

I turn around and Haylee’s got the painting smocks on her and McKay… how adorable.


They had gotten into the paints.  Oh my.

But adorable just the same.

And this was (sadly) the very next day: McKay got into my stamping ink!!  What a (cute) mess!!!

Another sweet story: Haylee likes to ‘help’ McKay eat his food.  She is so sweet to him.  I love watching it.  They giggle and laugh together.. It’s the best sound.


Some of my favorite ornaments.  Aren't they beautiful?  I love them.  Processed

Thanks for looking at our Christmas in March.  There will be more to come.
