A good reason to shop!

Dave and his crew at Pacific Growers have generously offered to donate 20% of Saturdays retail sales to the
Cash Parriera Benefit Fund. This Saturday April 24th. They are located at 9131 Markworth Rd Blaine. It will be a great time to grab your hanging basket and pick form their huge selection of bedding plants.

New lens where have you been all my life?

Recently I found a Pentax 50 mm f1.4 on ebay and WON it! This is a fun one. It creates a ton of bokah (the blurriness you see in the pictures) It gives you a super slim depth of field(the area that is in focus)-see picture of decking. This will be a great one Seniors, babies and kids. I tried it out on Lena and Judah when we watched them the the other day. And of course Charlie and Eddie too. OH what fun! Thanks for stopping by!

Will wonders never cease?

This week has been spring break. Except for Alex who just started at BTC and he is taking Computer techy stuff. He says his classes have allot of nerds in them. But its fun to see him excited about learning! He offered to make dinner for us(us includes Hana Levi Meagan Molly {meagans sister} Alex and Me) Bill is working in Eastern WA again and I am thankful to have my kids around to keep me company. Alex told me what to buy and he made it. I came home right on time from shootin some pics at
Sole Obsession dinner was ready and delicious. Thank-you ALex! Meagan and Levi have taken over my kitchen table to complete their senior projects. It's also wonderful to see my boy Levi studying hard. Thanks Meagan! (sorry meagan is blurry in the pic) It's been a fun week with them. They are very sweet kids and WE love them very much! sniff:.)

restoration in progress..

This makes me happy. When they took down this original home. My heart sank. But they had plans to rebuild it. Using some of the pictures I took last spring and by numbering the pieces they are putting it back together on a new foundation. They found pieces of denim between the boards. This was insulation back then. They are having to put new shingles on it, which will need to weather a bit. I intend to look into the family that built it. The Markworth family. Very cool. I will let you know what I find out. Thanks for stopping by!

Easter and blessings....

Aunt Judy-a fav aunt- I remember she could tease her hair and drive with her knees! COOL!

Boot Camp babes! See more!

Again I am overwhelmed with the blessings of having a great family. Today was Easter at Aunt Judy and Uncle Darryl. It has been about 6 years since my Aunt Clarice has passed away. I am going to try to explain why these families get together. You see Clarice is my mom's sister. Clarice was friends in high school with Judy who married my Dad's brother. She is missed. Did you get that? Well for a long time we have all still gotten together on Easter-three families and their children and grandchildren. New babies to crabby teens we got it covered. That is what families do when there is a loss-they fill in the holes. We know Aunt Clarice is in heaven but we will try to help her family move forward until they see each other again. Beyond that we ate, we laughed, we gathered and prayed. All in all...perfect!
