Winter Weather

We’ve had practically no winter weather all winter. If you know me, you know I love Winter! I love snow, getting bundled up, layers, hot chocolate, everything! I was a little bummed when my birthday rolled around on Tuesday and the weather was unseasonably warm.

Here’s Gavin on my birthday last year.

Here he is this year….


That’s right, we went to the park. It was about 50 degrees on January 10th this year! What?!

Jon was out of town, so I took the boys to the park after school.


Now, here we are two days later. The temperature has dropped dramatically! aaaaaaaaaaaand, we have snow!! This morning I took the boys out (it was 16 degrees. Hi, I’m mother of the year) to play in the snow. Brock’s first time to play in snow :) We only stayed out for a few minutes. Just until I thought I saw their snot freezing and their cheeks got red.

Brock, at first, just kept circling my car. He was having a hard time walking and wasn’t too sure about the snow.


Gav is a snow lover! I felt bad taking them out when it was so cold, but I knew there was no keeping him away from it!




Yes, I’m the mom who takes a photo of her baby when they’ve fallen in the snow. He took a bit to get up again, but he was fine ;)


**Disclaimer: For the snow photos…. I went out with my camera and Tamron lens. Well, it had an error and was not usable. I had to use my 50 1.8 and it’s not the best lens anymore. It’s crapping out on me, so the snow photos are pretty blah.

Bath Time Fun

Tonight, I decided to get out of my slump and get the camera out. I’ve been super lazy lately when it comes to photos. Brock refused to look at the camera for the most part. That should be fun when I do his 18 month photos soon! ;)

So, while the boys were contained, I snapped some photos.

Brock’s brown eyes are so different to photograph than Gavin’s blue eyes. They just look…. dark.IMG_5847IMG_5849IMG_5852bw



Cars in the bathtub. I love Gav’s wrinkly fingers here.


Baby eyelashes and a pouty bottom lip due to his bulldog under bite


I love him.


He was being a water fountain. Obviously, I couldn’t get a photo of his leg sticking out behind him ;)


Feels good to get the camera out again. I think some new gear (soon!) will help with the slump also!

A is for…. | 52 week project

Well, hello 2012! Since I failed at the 365 project last year, I decided to do something different and maybe more fun this year. A 52 week project. A friend of mine started a FB Page – Photo 52: ABCs. Basically, it’s a photo a week with a corresponding letter. We’ll go through the alphabet twice. I plan on turning mine into ABC books for the boys. We’ll see ;) I’m determined this year!!!

This week’s letter (obviously): A

A is for Angry Birds


Next week: B – Any guesses on what B is for? :)
