Happy new year…

We had a very special holiday season. One morning in between baseball games, Tommy and I stopped for coffee & juice at a nearby mall. Most of the shops were just setting up as it was still early in the day. We were blessed to catch Santa himself and Mrs. Claus pull up in their SUV (red of … Continue reading

Creating art

I made sure to have this photo labeled “heart,” seeing how it was Valentine’s day. So Special. Now he is almost two. Into … Continue reading

Surely Santa is preparing them for their long journey, guiding the infamous sleigh this Christmas. Tommy has been greeting the reindeer with a wave and imitates Santa with … Continue reading

Cars

A couple of weekends ago, my parents flew down to Las Vegas for a visit. I always have a fun time seeing my parents since they enjoy many of the same things as my husband and myself. Tommy loved showing Nana his car collection and asking “what’s that?” again and again, learning some golf and … Continue reading

Halloween is only days away! We are ready to have some fun, eat too much candy and be spooked. Last year for Halloween Tommy dressed up as “Plankton” from Spongebob. He was just 6 and a half months of age at the time. I made the costume with felt, pipe cleaners and fabric… I printed a … Continue reading
