Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

On a Winter's Day

the sweet little children will play
they will sled and laugh and cheer
and make me so happy that I am here
their little smiles warm the cold air
their little giggles can be heard everywhere
the memories of this charming day
remind me that in this moment
we are better than just ok


Alright, so I'm not much of a poet but we had quite a lovely day today - relaxing and unstructured and {relatively} calm. An great winter's day!
