Beautiful Weeds

I should have put my finger next to this flower. It was teeny - about the size of my index finger tip. I didn't notice the tiny fly on it until I uploaded the picture! This is some sort of flowering weed that grows on our backyard hill. They often find their way from sweet little hands to my small sized flower vase.

A Modern Moth

This morning, this beautiful moth was on our back patio door. See what I mean? Always something new out there in the mornings! I just loved it's coloring; it's so modern!

This chipmunk has been hanging around outside of our house awhile now. He was caught by one of our cats and was apparently trapped in our garage for the past two days. The kids started screaming with excitement when this chipmunk came running through the school room this afternoon. I guess 'lil Chip had enough of the garage heat and wanted to come inside our cool house! After a good half hour of trying to chase it down and catch it, I was able to trap the chipmunk in between the window and the screen. When it climbed to the top, I opened the screen and out it went. Phew! One cat cowered and the other thought it was a toy. What good they are, huh?!

Craving Fall

A close up of these fall flowers...

Another One Bites The Dust

To say my son's team was elated, with their third straight win tonight, is an understatement! Go War Eagles!

K. Diddy

It seems, lately, that there is some sort of bug or creature by our back door each morning...

Falling Leaves

It's almost that time here... although I have read it won't be as pretty here this year...

2 and 0

I figure it will be fun to document my sons winning games here with a picture of some sort. They beat the Broncos. My son kicked a sweet field goal for the two extra points. (I learned last night that field goals were 2 points in youth football - who knew?!). He was ecstatic! Let me tell you, action shots in low light are extremely difficult to capture. If anyone has any advice, I am all ears!

Holy Moley

I'm sorry for the really bad pun, but I just could not resist!

Should I get back in the pool or take my nap?

I saw this today at Jen's brother in laws house... it was gorgeous!
Just how in the world does one pronounce this blooms real name?!

My Downfall

Leftover birthday cake in the house + Me = Disaster. Cake for breakfast, cake for lunch; let's just say my day was totally shot after that...

A Wise Old Owl

“A wise old owl sat on an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard;
Why aren't we like that wise old bird?”

6 Years Ago...

seems like yesterday at times...Today, I drove up to where my man works to take a picture of this memorial plaque.
It rests near some pine trees on a trail adjacent to a parking lot.

We Won!

My oldest plays football and tonight was his first game - his team won! An intense NFL game yesterday; an absolutely fun Youth Football game tonight; two victories in two days puts this mama in football heaven!

What a nose!

OK, so I've been catching some flack lately for taking so many pictures of dead things... and I've been stuck inside the past week with a bad head cold. So here's one more (yeah right) picture of Coco - up close and personal. I did not intend for the picture to turn out this way, but she was moving and, I ended up focusing on her nose, and, well, I just thought it looked neat. :)

Joy and Pain...

is like sunshine and rain.
Our baby lost his first tooth this morning...
No pain; no blood. The joy and pain is in mama's heart!
They grow up way too fast.

The Look of Love

My oldest is cradling Coco's face as she affectionately begs him for more treats!

She found this at the bottom of the pool last night (notice her "E.T." pruney hands). And the sunlight hit it just right (emphasized with a tiny boost from photoshop). ;)

It Is What You Think...

Blood Sucking Ticks

I really really don't like these. Can I just say I bloody hate them? ;)
