{Baby Wyciskalla}

Keeping Baby Wyciskalla, Mom Patty, and Daddy Doug in our thoughts and prayers tonight...

As everyone was planning and preparing for a baby shower in the morning, Baby W decided he/she wanted to come into the world two months early!

Baby is 4 pounds and getting steroids to strengthen lungs and mom is getting meds to put off labor.

Lord, hear our prayers.......

{Doing what I love}

I've had the camera in-hand all weekend...I'm a happy girl!

This is Stephanie.  We shot her Senior pictures today.  I've only had the chance to go through a few but can tell already, we're going to have a hard time picking!  Not only is she a pleasure to be with but also oh-so-photogenic!  I could have spent all day with her!  She was a real sport! We hit all the spots I've been dying to try!  Thanks Stephanie!

This is Josh.  We did photos to celebrate his upcoming 1st birthday!  I've had the privilege of photographing him three times in his short little life!  What a joy he is...those dimples and those eyes!  Oh my!

My hopes for Sunday is to get Ethan to sit for a photo or two!

I could listen to this over and over and over....

I haven't been a huge David Cook fan....until now. WOW! I love this song all over again!

{Thanks Jessica}

My one and only reader...Thanks for checking in Jessica!

{Don't let the faces fool you}

Mondays in general are not fun for anyone.

This Monday was no exception, but one event in particular made me wish we never woke up!
Don't let these sweet faces fool you...They had a breaksfast unlike any others...It wasn't rabbit stew, but a litter of newborn bunnies. Ethan and I watched helplessly in horror. It was too late for us to do anything to help. We were so sad. I forget that our dogs are animals. They've been in trouble with me all day and don't even know why! Mr. Gerry was kind enough to come and clean up the carnage. We owe him bigtime!
Sorry bunnies...

Never mind the fact that it has been over a month since I last posted...

We had the most WONDERFUL Sunday yesterday!  Yes, we spent hours cleaning the garage...for the first time since we've lived in this house (almost four years!), we can actually park a car in it!  Woo-hoo!

Even more wonderful than the garage and the glorious weather, was the fact that Ethan had a great day!  It was a day of BOYS, FUN, MUD, TAG, SCREAMING, CORN DOGS, BIKE RIDES, WALKS BY THE POND, FRESH AIR!!!  

It reminded me why we bought this house.  Our first time driving by, we were excited to see a front yard across the street, filled with kids of all ages, playing together.  We knew that that was exactly what we wanted for Ethan.  Kids everywhere, enjoying summer, enjoying each other! 

These photos of Ethan don't do the day justice, but I had to capture him like this, nonetheless!   He came home after hours of play - covered in mud - head to toe!  Really!  

Bring on summer!!!
